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

Poor, old hotel not to the Best Western standards. Room had a terrible smell of an old furniture. In-window air condition unit was very loud. The banyan tree park in front of the hotel is full of homeless people. This hotel needs an upgrade.

I apologize that you didn't enjoy your stay at our hotel and realize that the historic nature might not appeal to everyone. We do maintain Best Western standards and are in the process of replacing carpeting and air conditioners in all the guest rooms and I hope this didn't cause a disturbance during your stay. Mahalo for taking the time... More

Hotel itself is dated. However, great central location, right on the edge where main shopping stroll is, close to many restaurants. Good place if you are looking for convenience rather tan luxury. We enjoyed many sunsets in the little park right in front of the hotel.

If you want to stay in downtown Lahaina, this is the place for you. It is right on the main street, walking distance to all the shopping and restaurants you want. We opted to stay here as it was across the street from the Molokai/Lanai Ferry doc, which leaves very early. Parking is free, so if you are renting a... More

The location was perfect. our room #17 was closest to the ocean on second floor. Across street from Banyan Tree Park and Ocean, great viewing. Restaurant was great, we ate breakfast there 3 days in a row. Parking was about 1/2 block away, not an issue. Great place, will come back.

Visited the Pioneer Inn again after over 40 years and was not disappointed. It's not a fancy, posh high-rise. Instead, it's a solid, clean, character-filled old inn in the heart of Lahaina. If you want to experience old Maui as it was in the 60s, give this old girl a try. You won't be sorry.

Neat, simple, historic hotel. Great just to wake up and walk into town for coffee. Walk to beaches and at night walk to restaurants. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Nice little pool. Receptionist person was pleasant and helpful.

You have to stay at the Pioneer Inn. It is a classic in all of Hawaii. SO much better than the uber tourist big chains in Kaanapali. Rooms are small but, hey, it was built in 1901. Perfect location and the real feel of Hawaii.
