“Pioneer Inn”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Great old style hotel, located in the center of Lahina Maui. Walk to shops, restaurants, and shows. Great place for a staycation. Mother, daughters, one from Chicago, one from Haiku, Maui had a wonderful time. We go once a year. The only slight problem is to get to your rooms, 19 steps, mom is 92 and had no problem, but she'd only do it twice a day.

The Pioneer Inn is an iconic hotel in the centre of Lahaina.

Stayed there for 11 night whilst attending a wedding on the island. We far preferred the relaxed charm of this hotel to the big hotels further up the coast.

Lovely staff who always stopped for a chat. Huge breakfasts. Close to everything in Lahaina old town.

The room was OK, bed very comfortable.

If you are visiting for any length of time I recommend hiring a car (free parking). Maui is not quite set up for a car free holiday and we found you needed to drive or hire expensive taxis. Car free for a short stay is fine, since there is lots to do in Lahaina and a beach quite close.

want to enjoy the simple life style of lahana.go fishing suba or take a day trip along the coast line. the pioneer inn provides simple lodgeing close to shopping.and good eats right next to the docks. the side walks roll up early so a good nites sleep in this sleepy village leaves you refreshed for the day in the sun

Have been staying at the Pioneer Inn for many years now....one night before we head to our condo. Love the location - beautiful sunsets - right at the harbor. Rooms have balconies - some overlooking the lovely Banyon Tree. Sit on the lanai and listen to the sounds of Front Street which includes live music. Rooms are very comfortable - quiet at night. All have AC. Offer a discount in the restaurant to patrons.

My husband and I stayed here for our first night on Maui, and enjoyed it. Katherine at the front desk was so kind and helpful, and answered any questions we had cheerfully. She gave us advice on where, and where not to park the car. We loved that this place had a lot of history, and our balcony over the main street was fun to watch the action on the street below. The room was not large, but this is typical of older places, and was clean and light and bright.

This hotel has a great location in the heart of Lahaina. If you have an early morning whale watch all you have to do is walk out the front door. It is also very convenient to have parking available right in town. We were able to walk everywhere in town and along beaches.

Very nice staff but this hotel needs a ton of work. Our room had a musty smell and was very dated. Must say the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was great but at least 3 more servers are needed as the waitress could not keep up.
