Beware this hotel has no elevator and rooms are on second floor. Room was nice and clean. Right by the marina if you are leaving early for trips. Location can be noisy but the AC is too so you don't hear it unless there is a party in the court yard. Staff seemed indifferent.

Good location , looking out on front street . Clean and well appointed. Would definitely stay there again ! Comfortable beds and great pillows . The parrot in the dining room was a bit noisy at times . When I told him to be quiet he told me to be quiet !

The Best Western Pioneer Inn is a great place to stay in Maui. Clean rooms, close to the wharf. Balcony to sit while having morning coffee or to sit in the evening enjoying a glass of wine after a full day of sightseeing. The staff are great especially Katherine and Anna. Close to the shops, very reasonable prices and close... More

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
