When we first arrived, we were just a shade disappointed that the property was not on the waterfront (it's always hard to tell from websites of hotels), but it turned out to be perfectly located. It's really just a stone's throw walk from the bustle but being just off it, it's literally like an oasis of quiet! We loved our... More

Nice rooms with A/C and fan. Pool and hot tub are open 24/7. The best part is the location. It is close to town combined with free parking (parking throughout the town you have to pay for). Free breakfast included (but not gratuity - it is table service).

We stayed at Plantation Inn from 11-4 to 11-9. It is hard to find at night, especially if this is your first trip to the island. But once we got there, we found the staff courteous and friendly. We had a poolside room. Parking was in the back. I was amazed at how quiet it was by the pool, considering... More

Stayed here for the first time in a poolside room. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and this spirit of aloha carried over the next three days. We were happy with how quiet it was here, and only a short block and a half to Front street action. Breakfast was around the pool in the morning with four... More

Not a huge fan of large resort hotels so we chose The Plantation Inn for 3 nights after spending a night in Hana. Unlike many B&B's this one feels more like a hotel than staying in someone's home. I'd never before stayed at a B&B that had a breakfast menu - usually you get a so-so buffet or you're fed... More

Just spent our 7th straight vacation at the Plantation Inn (Oct 26-Nov 5). With new manager wasn't sure if the inn would offer the same "warm, cozy, personal atmosphere" (as in past years). It was excellent as always. Sam, the new manager has excellent personality (fits like a glove with rest of crew!!!). Nancy had the grounds and pool picture... More

This is a great place to stay if you like being close to town (one block) but want to feel like you are in a private oasis of calm. Our room was spacious (#16) and was in the section we requested--back building, second floor overlooking the pool. The room had everything we needed: lovely soap, shampoo, lotion, hair dryer, ironing... More

positives: in town location, pool, parking, friendly and helpful staff, we didn't eat there, so can't comment on that. Bed and sheets were ok, bathroom shower was perfectly fine. Air con was up to the task and helpful but did spit out water at one point when changing temperatures. negatives: not on a beach, says no kids, but a kid... More

This is the place to stay if you want to be in the heart of old Lahaina. The town is great for strolling and shopping, and the Plantation Inn is in the center of it all. The Inns rooms are arranged around their nice pool and have lanais. Our room ( #16) was large and comfortable. Lovely furnishings. Good WiFi.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip to Maui. The location is perfect because you can walk anywhere in the Town of Lahaina from here, and it's a great town to spend time in. Parking is free. WiFi is free. We stayed in a Lanai room, number 12. It was our 25th Anniversary so Nora,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the historic district of Lahaina, steps from the waterfront and all the excitement it holds, yet far enough to offer precious tranquility. This is the allure that The Plantation Inn offers. 19 rooms and suites, each uniquely furnished with its own custom interiors, housed in graceful turn-of-the-century charm and set against manicured gardens. This is the intimacy that is The Plantation Inn. Breakfast is included for all paying guests and served from 7:30 to 9:30 am in the tranquil poolside setting. Selections include Chef Gerard Reversade's gourmet French Toast, poached Eggs Basquaise, Gerard's special blend Mueslix along with homemade yogurt or a fresh bagel with salmon & cream cheese. ... more   less
