“Outstanding choice for travellers seeking the action & culture of Lahaina.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We chose to stay at the Plantation Inn on this visit to Maui because we wanted to be within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and activity of Lahaina. The Inn is quaint, clean, and comfortable, and serves a killer breakfast... but the absolute best part about staying there is it's proximity to all the activity in Lahaina. Cheeseburger In Paradise is a stones throw down the street! Downside is that you are in Maui and don't have an ocean view or a resort beach... but if you are planning on doing day trips and want a variety of evening options that are withing walking distance, you will LOVE the Plantation Inn.

Room Tip: Room 16 is upstairs facing the pool with a lanai. The room is very spacious with a king bed, but th...

We've stayed in Maui before, but further out at Kaanapali in one of the resort hotels. This time we wanted to be able to go out for a meal and a couple of drinks without worrying about driving, so the plantation inn fitted the bill - being just a few minutes walk from Front Street, and what a lovely place to stay. Our room was large and airy, on the ground floor with a lovely lanai (clever use of beautiful plants and shrubs ensured privacy), beautifully furnished. The staff were friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Donna and Rose and the rest of the breakfast team made us feel very welcome in the morning. The pool was very clean and well taken care of and was a joy to swim in and laze around. We loved our time there and look forward to visiting again. Only one suggestion, tea and coffee making facilities in our room would have been great.

Room Tip: Lanai rooms are worth the extra charge.

My husband and I stayed at Plantation Inn at the beginning for 3 nights but decided to stay 3 more nights! It was such a beautiful place!
The room was big and nice! It was clean and decorated with taste.
The breakfast was pretty good too by the pool.
It is right in the center of Lahaina, so you can walk everywhere!!
The staff was nice, too!
Anyway, THE perfect place to stay!
I highly recommend it.

This cozy inn is just a couple of blocks from Front Street in Lahaina, but miles away from the crowds and the noise. Ground floor rooms open up onto a little lanai with cushioned wicker seating, right off the pool area, with a beautiful view of blue skies and palm trees. Spacious and meticulously clean room included a small fridge and a safe. King size bed was a little soft for us, but we like a firmer mattress than most. The included breakfast has limited choices, but something for everyone; bagel and lox is always a safe choice. Staff was friendly and gracious, from the front desk to the breakfast server. The Plantation Inn is a refreshing alternative to all the commercial resort properties in Hawaii, but Ka'anapali Shores hotel is a sister property, and you can use their amenities for beach access and island activities. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: check the Inn's website for a map of where each room is located.

Stayed 2 nights last week and was pretty pleased with this property. Room was clean, spacious and amenities pretty modern. Loved the bamboo style fixtures in the bathroom. Free breakfast in the morning was served out by pool under umbrellas. Good french toast and other selections served by really nice waitresses. For this location so close to busy Front street it was surprisingly quiet but the chirping birds started early every morning. As this property is located in a residential area, we even had a rooster for a wake up call in the mornings...but i think his crow was a bit early for a vacation! Service was great for check in and free parking was an added bonus! We would definitely stay here again and really loved that the property was close to most of our activities. We stayed on the second floor over looking the pool in room 18 and it was nice to enjoy the beautiful weather in the afternoon sitting out on our lanai with a nice cool drink ! ( would of loved having a coffee maker in the room, but coffee was available down in lobby by pool.)

Room Tip: Check on all hotel website discounters.....We found a good rate on book it.com

Relax just off the busy spending path of Front Street at the Plantation Inn. A secluded palm tree-lined home away from home, guest rooms with king-sized beds and double doors lead out to a private patio and shared refreshing pool and hot tub. A French pool-side breakfast greets you each morning that is so good (try the French toast or the croque monsieur) it lures you to stay for dinner at Gerard's (located at the front of the Inn). Sit on the porch as the sun sets, listen to the birds and enjoy a glass or wine from their award-winning wine list (half bottles available for the solo traveller). Gerard prepares food so fine, you'll want to learn French cooking (try the rillettes de porc and the grilled rack of lamb). Breakfast is included in the room fee as well as $25/person credit towards your 3-course dinner at Gerard's. I'll most definitely stay here again.

Stayed at Plantation Inn 4 days in April 2012 with my wife. We are always looking for the small, quint places that give you a peace of mind, personal service and have a great location. If your looking for the same, look no further.

All built in 1989, but the look and "feel" looks more dated - not worn down though. Plantation inn has a nice pool / sitting / garden area with a hot tub. All you need, in a beautiful and quint location.

We stayed in room 10, ground level situated in the building opposite the main. A lovely decorated and spacious room with its own terrace just by the pool. Hardwood flooring and furnished in dark hardwood materials. A great room.

They serve a complementary breakfast from the Gerards kitchen by the pool. Fresh coffee/tea, juice, fruits and your choice of entree. A good start on the day. Best of all - mobile phone free area during breakfast:=)

Gerards is the "inhouse" restaurant, reviewed by many here at TA - and it its as good as they say, lovely food and very good service!

The staff is very nice, proactive and give you the feeling of "being home" and taken care of. Couldn´t ask for much more.

Location is a couple of blocks from front street - max 10min walk to all the commotion.

Anything we missed? That would be the in room coffee machine...:=) But thats a small detail.

Love the place, and will for shure be back!

Room Tip: All are unique in design - room 10 is tucked nicely away and beautiful decorated.
