“Good location, nice small hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

I stayed once before at the Plantation Inn and remembered it as being a bit nicer. It is in a good location with a nice pool. The staff were friendly and the hotel was clean. The internet was slow and unreliable and we had a light that kept turning on by itself in the early morning for no apparent reason. Otherwise there were no problems.
The free breakfast was pretty good and the portions were large.

Just a short stroll to the waterfront this inn provided us the perfect combination of boutique hotel and B&B. Cool down in the pool, enjoy a gourmet breakfast, walk into Lahaina and along the sea front enjoying all the village has to offer. Good value for the quality. We didn't eat at the restaurant however it smelled lovely. Very friendly staff.

There is nothing that I can say bad about the Plantation Inn. The location is superb, the room clean and airy with a lanai, the grounds and pool are well maintained, the complimentary (served so a tip is necessary) breakfast delicious and the staff friendly and helpful.
We were in room #15 and although the pool pump was downstairs in the back to the right we never heard it in the room or on the lanai. Actually we couldn't hear any outside noise except the wind blowing hard one night. It was spotlessly clean and was made up promptly every day. Cookies were left the first day and the usual toiletries were replenished as used. There is also a small refrigerator in the room. Our only complaint and it is a minor one is that there is no coffee maker in the room.
Parking is free and since it is less than 2 blocks to the ocean and Front St. a lot of places in Lahaina are within easy walking distance. Within 1 block was a shopping center with a Foodland supermarket which we used to buy drinks and snacks. We were also able to do some laundry while there which was convenient.
Breakfast was delicious and although I prefer a buffet with more choices the food offered was well made and the servers friendly.
Although advertised as a B&B I think it is more like an inn with breakfast included. We did not eat at Gerard's even though they gave us a $50 voucher when we checked in.
This is an excellent choice especially if you don't want to stay at a resort.

Room Tip: The back building away from the restaurant/check-in building is very quiet and parking is very near...

The staff were not really trained with customer care skils, maybe the management should invest in some training. Breakfast was generally poor constant demands and reminders that tipping was expected did nothing to make us warm to this place. Room was clean and entirely fine. The only sure thing is location. Wonderful location with everything within a short walk.

We've been to Lahania many times and it can be such a busy little town that we wondered how it would be to stay in town. The Plantation Inn is not on the water but it is within walking distance to everything in the town of Lahania and they provide free parking. It is also a sister location of the Kaanapali Beach Hotel so you can spend the day at the Beach, use the hotel facilities and bill it to your room at the Plantation Inn. The Plantation Inn also has a lovely pool and garden area and that's where breakfast is served, which is included with your room. The fact that Gerard's, a gourmet French restaurant, is located on premise is also a plus. Many room have balconies, although we had a suite and were disappointed that we did not have a balcony. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Said to be the best bed and breakfast in Maui and likely to be so. Old style rooms spacious and many with balconies .Nice central pool and grassed area for sun bathing also hot tub. Breakfast included in the price and taken around the pool, Good free parking on site. Gerrards restaurant is on site and of a high standard. by no means cheap but $25 voucher per meal per person if staying at the Plantation make it good value. I had room with a large balcony in the main building above the restaurant overlooking the town. The only minus points was some noise from the restaurant until 10pm and I was unable to get wireless internet in the room. Other guests in the main building had the same problem. ok around the pool. Surely a booster would easily solve the problem as it was annoying. Otherwise a great stay.

Room Tip: The two rooms at the front onto the street have large balconies with two rocking chairs, lounger and...
