We had a great night at the Pioneer as a bit of a last minute stop there. The hotel has a great location right in town next to the pier and a great rate for the location. We had already done the secluded hotel thing so this was great to be in town.

Excellent location! Good value for price!! We were kind of scared of staying here because we had no references, and we arrived late so the welcome was kind of shady. Yet our stay turned out to be excellent!! Clean, confortable and clean!! - thats all i care about.

We had a great stay. The two ladies at the front desk were great! This Inn was built in 1901 and for its age I have no complaints. They give you 15% off for breakfast in the attached restaurant. The only issue for us was that the restaurant didn't open till 7am. Over all a great place to stay for... More

We stayed only one night at Pioneer Inn before we headed to a resort in Kaanapali. We were in room 36, a corner room, with a wrap-around lanai providing the luxury of viewing the historic Banyan Tree Park on the side and people watching along Front St. on the rear of the hotel. The hotel is historic, being built in... More

Best Western's Pioneer Inn in Lahaina is the perfect couples' getaway. Within walking distance of shops, eateries, and the waterfront, it offers the historical grandeur of a century-old hotel with clean, convenient, updated modern amenities. The courtyard is secluded and shaded, the restaurant is open air and offers a tasty lunch menu (with healthy options!) and fun, yummy pupus for... More

Best Western in Lahaina was an all around great play to stay, and the bed was so comfortable we wanted to take it home! The location couldn't be better, and the hotel staff was great. I would highly recommend staying here!

This classic hotel in the heart of Lahaina is in a great central location. The historical significance of the property and the character of the room decor is very well done. Recommend the street front rooms with own lanai to enjoy the nature of the township. Staff were terrific.

Hotel itself is reasonable, possibly better value accommodation about (not at the resorts though), but nothing with the convenience of the Pioneer Inn's location, right in the heart of Lahaina, right on the wharf - and you should definitely be doing some activities based off the wharf while you are here! The restaurant downstairs is pretty good value as well,... More
