Recommend room 17; closest to stairwell and shortest distance to haul your bags; plus excellent view of the banyan tree and the wharf; Great place to view all the boats and Saturday morning crafts sale under the banyan tree. Close to everything; Go sit at Mary's and see the Luau for the price of a few appetizers. Fleetwood's place is... More

Great place to stay if you want to experience Lahaina at your own Lanai. Bit pricey for the size and having to schlep your luggage up a flight of stairs but we love sitting and watching the colorful world walk buy.

Extremely helpful staff, very clean, great location. Parking a few blocks away, but located in center of congested shopping district on the waterfront. Convenient walking to everything. Only complaint is noisy room A/C fan. Employee who carried our two large suitcases upstairs (no elevator) declined to accept a tip...I was amazed!

Stayed here 30years ago and it is still the best place in Maui. On the harbor, middle of lahaina, off street parking, middle of town. This hotel still has the same charm as 30 years ago but modernized and still quaint. Ask for street or banyan tree side. Rooms are all second floor but with patio. Fantastic staff. What an... More

Our stay was to celebrate our anniversary/birthday . Being local, we know how noisy Lahaina can get at night, and how old this Inn is, so expected noise, and creaky floors. We were wrong. Our room overlooked the courtyard and was peacefully quite, lacking road/tourist noise and did not even hear other guests coming/going in hallway. Shower especially nice, instant... More

This wonderful historic Inn exudes character and charm. It offered everything we needed for a two night stay. The room was small but comfortable and the lanai offered lovely views of the park and waterfront. The mini fridge was a bonus and the ice machine was easy to access. What a fantastic location! Just walk out the door and you... More

I was surprised how nice this hotel was. For a 2 star, it's a good deal. Being in the heart of Lahania where a lot of action is, it was decent and quite. The beds were comfy & clean. The only down side, we stayed in a room with twin beds that only had the flat sheets and did not... More

The Best Western Pioneer Inn in Lahaina, Maui (built in 1901) is situated at the busy little harbour in Lahaina. Over breakfast you can people watch as they head out on fishing trips and whale watching excursions. The hotel is over 100 years old, so don't expect the Hilton in terms of facilities (other reviewers have commented that there are... More
