The hotel has an awesome location if you are staying in Lahaina. The staff at the front desk and the housekeepers were helpful and warm. We enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast and the discount coupon given at check in was a pleasant surprise. While in Lahaina we walked everywhere because the hotels location is great. My husband went stand up...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We stayed here two nights at the beginning and end of our trip to Hana. Checking in and out was a breeze with the helpful staff. We were even able to get in a bit before the check-in time, which was a huge blessing after a long day of traveling. Our room and the whole facility actually was clean and...

Staying here is just like going back in time for over 100 years. The location adds to the stay, right at the harbor and next to the banyon tree. You are in the center of all the action where so much history took place. Having your own porch with rocking chairs and to watch all of the action at the...

Stayed at Pioneer Inn for its close proximity to the Maui=>Lana'i Expeditions passenger ferry. It's a 1 min walk to the dock. The Inn is quaint and everything I thought it would be. The Inn was built in 1901 and feels right at home on Front st across from the famous Banyan tree. Our room was on the corner of...

We have eaten at the restaurant several times, however not stayed at the hotel. Located at the famous Lahaina Wharf where you can book a whale watch cruise on a large vessel or sail boat. We like the Scotch Mist all 50 ft sailboat. Great crew they know their stuff. Excellent Tuna charters from here, also.

Right in the heart of Lahaina, the historic Inn is charming yet with all the modern amenities. It's within walking distance of Banyon Tree Park, the Lahaina Bay Marina, Bubba Gumps and other shops and restaurants. We loved every minute.

I stayed at the Best Western Pioneer Inn in February 2017 for 3 nights. I was traveling on my own and the location of this hotel made it easy to get to everything. I had a few tours booked leaving from Lahaina Harbour and is literally across the road. The rooms are old but very clean and I had a...

Great location to catch early morning ferry to Lanai and also able to walk to Foodland to pick up some items before the ferry. Room we clean, quite and short walk from reception desk. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Lahania next to the harbour.

Great location with access to the boat tours across the street, and central Lahaina. Built in 1901, it is not a modern resort, but we loved it, and this was our second time staying there. Katherine at the front desk was outstanding. We recommend that you attend the one-man shows by Rick Scheideman at the hotel on Sunday evening. We...

The location is prime, the facility is old; and its greatest asset is its ability to let one step-back in time. Across one street from the wharf, and another street from the old Courthouse; it doesn't take too much imagination to see a harbor full of whaling & merchant ships and feel the ambiance of a bygone era. There are...
