Stayed a couple days at the Pioneer while visiting Maui. Had a great time. Older place with a lot of history. Nice rooms, clean, well manitained. Bathrooms also. Right on Front Street and overlooking the harbour. Lots of places to eat but we opted for the in house restaurant. We were lucky enough to enjoy the sounds of Maui Underground... More

We were extremely satisfied with this Best Western. The staff were all extremely knowledgeable of the area, transportation and activities. They were all friendly and helpful. Katherine is absolutely wonderful, enthusiastic and informative. We were thrilled with her insight. The location is perfect for boat trips, Roberts bus or coaches etc. We walked a few feet to take the Reef... More

We stayed at the Pioneer Inn for one night a couple of days ago. This hotel is located just across from the ferry pier to Lanai. The location is great as it is at the center of Lahaina. The hotel it self is aging and the building is over a century old. The room are small but quite nicely furnished... More

If you have any possible handicap, ask for a room on the ground level. Only stairs available. Joined Best Western because of the value of the dollar and have enjoyed my stays with the other properties. Always good Restaurant- lots of other eating establishes right around the corner. Location is good for shopping, especially the ABC store. p.s. Can't get... More

The Pioneer Inn is a really great hotel in the heart of Lahina. They have free parking, clean rooms, and a super helpful staff. You can walk almost anywhere you want to go. One note - the bar across the street does play music loud at night.

The Pioneer Inn is unpretentious, and authentic. My room had a view of the park and bay (make the request when you RSVP) Noise was not a problem. Walking distance to all restaurants and water oriented activities. I'm pleased there was no resort fee or charge for parking.

Follow the lead of prior guest from TripAdvisor and they were right on, great find, great value If you are looking for a place where the pool boy and servers are there this is not the venue for you. If you are looking for a great experience, this is the place.

The Pioneer Inn I like, a lot. Generally I am not a fan of Best Westerns (see my review of Durango BW), but the pioneer Inn is excellent. The owners have managed to maintain the historical feel of the building, in the best location in Lahaina with modern room interiors. Almost on the harbour front. See pictures. The staff on... More
