Cute place away from the hustle and bustle on Front street. Front desk service was good, very friendly, and free parking is a plus. We had the cheapest room, so no balcony or view but the room was spacious and clean. Nice pool area which was never busy during our stay, a big plus for us! The Ka'anapali Beach Hotel... More

We have stayed twice at the Plantation Inn and it is a perfect oasis to come back to after a busy day on Maui. The rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated with Hawaiian decor. The pool is never crowded and a great place to refresh after a hot day. The breakfast by the pool in the morning was always tasty,... More

As a Maui resident in Hana, this is my favorite place to stay while visiting "the other side of the island". Quiet, unpretentious and an excellent location and value to being in Lahaina. There are other nice places, but this excels where others leave off. Located just a block or so off Front Street, you're in a quiet oasis in... More

Quiet hotel in a great location. Small, but never crowded pool and hot tub. We stayed in a standard room (no lanai) and a lanai room. Definitely worth the extra for the lanai room which overlooks the pool. Daily breakfast is excellent with good service and delicious food. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Free parking. Rooms are unique... More

Great complimentary breakfast at Plantation inn. Rooms were great, located right around the nice pool that was (allegedly) open 24 hours. Staff was wonderful and the rooms were remodeled and looked great too. Location was totally key. Maybe a full 2 minute walk from the center of downtown off of front street. We split our Maui vacation in half. Spent... More

Quiet location, easy walk to shops and restaurants. Free onsite parking a plus. Very friendly and helpful staff. Plentiful breakfast. Clean, comfortable room, well decorated. Pool open 24 hrs, and the partnership with the Kaanapali Beach Hotel means access to beautiful beach, with towels and other amenities.
