Overall we had a very satisfying stay at the Best Western Pioneer Inn. It is located at the very heart of Lahaina, within easy walking distance of restaurants, historical locations, and activities. Also an easy drive to most everywhere. The thing we didn't like about the hotel was it had no elevator. I have asthma and we had to very... More

We booked this hotel for a few nights as part of our honeymoon. I was a bit hesitant as I knew it was in central downtown Lahaina and I was concerned about 2 things: Parking and Noise. Well, considering parking was included with the room price (which meant no fighting for limited spots downtown!) and the noise? I'm not sure... More

Just completed the 2014 Victoria to Maui yachting race 2308 nautical miles across open ocean and stepped off the boat to a reception at the Pioneer Inn. The warm greeting that we received from fellow racers, and staff at the hotel was one that I will cherish forever. A large welcome sign; cheers, and a delicious buffet table was the... More

We have always stayed in Kaanapali at the Hyatt and decided to stay in Lahaina this time to be within walking distance to everything we enjoy doing. What a treat. The rooms are small but clean. Who wants to stay in the room anyway! Employees (Anne) were awesome. We even got a 1pm checkout. Great lanais to people watch. Hands... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is close to the harbor (right across the street), shops, and restaurants. It's a bit of a walk to the beach and there is another beach that's too far to walk, but a short drive away. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel that has... More

We stayed nine nights at the Pioneer Inn and were pleasantly treated and found the hotel to exceed our expectations. The Pioneer Inn is an old hotel that the owners have done an outstanding job of modernizing. Our room was always clean and fresh, the only thing we wished for was a microwave to heat something up when we didn't... More

My relatives from abroad and I stayed here for four nights in August, and we can't complain. The hotel itself is very old and probably needs some renovations. However, the rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the staff is very professional and helpful. The location worked well for us too. It's in the middle of this charming town Lahaina... More

Stayed here for my 50th birthday! It was clean, conveniently located, and a great value. I loved the pool, and watching the sunset from the gazebo in the beautiful courtyard!! The staff was friendly and helpful too. I would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you for making my BIG birthday a memorable one!

This was our second stay at the Pioneer Inn. We were worried on our arrival as it was the day before Hurricane Iselle hit Hawaii; we'd almost cancelled our trip. Last year we had a Front Street facing room at the Pioneer Inn but this year were put in courtyard facing rooms in case of high winds from the hurricane.... More

We literally booked this hotel at the last minute as our originally booked hotel was not up to scratch. What a surprise we had & a wonderful 3 nights. The Pioneer Inn is set in the historic district of Lahania & is surrounded by fantastic ocean scenery & a multitude of quaint souvenir, arts & jewelry shops. The hotel was... More
