Our 4th stay there.Posted Apr 9, 2013
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: Rooms are a bit smallish.
We have stayed there 4 times now. The location in Lahaina can't be beat, as you can walk to everything and the boat harbor is right across the street. If you're willing to forego a big fancy pool and sweeping views of the ocean, this is a great value for the money by Maui resort standards. Rooms are small but comfortable, with one queen bed in each. They can bring in a roll-a-way single bed for a third person, but then things get really cramped. Splurge and get a second room if you have more than 2 people. You'll get 2 bathrooms that way and probably end up paying about the same or less as you would for one Kaanapali beach hotel room. Recommend getting rooms that look out on the Banyon tree across the street.

Great location, clean rooms.Posted Mar 2, 2013
Rooms are clean, well appointed. Queen rooms are not large but have a balcony. If staying longer than a night or two, I would stay in a King room which is quite a bit larger. Nice location in the center of town, able to walk to everything. Our room overlooked the street but we have a very good sleep with little noise.

Great authentic experience of Old Lahaina.Posted Jan 18, 2013
Pros: Original, authentic and personal.
Cons: Only one thing - the mynah birds in the nearby Banyan Tree were a trifle noisy at dusk!
Location: Perfect position in Lahaina and for exploring West Maui.
The Pioneer Inn, Lahaina was a breath of fresh air after having stayed in a large modern Conference Hotel in Waikiki the previous week. Nothing was too much trouble and we were guaranteed individual attention. The breakfast was included in our rate and was a great start to each day. We had gone to Maui to whale watch and this hotel is excellently located for all trips. And, while the rest of Maui seemed to shut down for the evening by 9:00 pm, there was still a huge variety of entertainment and nightlife in or near The Pioneer Inn. Yes, a little dated but very authentic. And this is one hotel where you can swim under the stars until 10:00 pm. Magic. Cannot wait to return.

Great location, great staff - LahainaPosted Dec 17, 2012
This hotel has an awesome location! You can walk everywhere in Lahaina from here. Next time I would avoid the rooms on the second floor number 47 and 49, as they are close to a guy with parrots on the street corner. They are LOUD, but he is gone by about 10:00pm each night.

An historical Hotel in LahainaPosted Oct 14, 2012
Pros: The staff and the food.
Cons: The rooms are dated, but are clean.
Location: Great, and the price is hard to beat for a Maui tourist hotel.
The location is great. We were catching the morning ferry to Lanai, and it's right across the street. The Hotel is over 100 years old. There are great Bars, Restaurants and Shops all along Front Street. You can't beat the history of this old Hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Be sure and get Macadamia Nut Pancakes in the dining room for breakfast.

Best Quaint, historic inn right in central LahainaPosted May 28, 2012
Pros: Quaint, historic venue. Easy to get to anywhere in Lahaina on foot. Nicest people working there. Great value. Quiet. Old yet moderized. Felt safe!
Cons: Shower head probably needed replacing along with the tub to shower diverter. Rooms were dark, typical of older lodging venues.
Location: The best, most central place to stay in historic downtown Lahaina. It is CLOSE TO EVERYTHING ON FOOT!
This is the best 100+ year old hotel at which I have ever stayed. Chosen because of its historical location and experience, the Pioneer Inn is a small venue with only 34 rooms. So it is very quiet, very private. All the modern amenities you want are available: phone, Internet, digital cable TV, and the safety of the hotel has been upgrade to include fire sprinklers as part of an extensive renovation. It is right on the Lahaina marina along Front Street juxtaposed to the city square where the famous old banyan tree is 139 years old. An abundance of dining and shopping across a continuum ensures there are food and gifts to meet every budget, big to small. In the hotel there is a nice restaurant and many small shops. The Pioneer Inn itself is a quasi-museum with photographs of old time Lahaina lining to walls. There was no elevator to be found so there is no wheelchair access beyond the first floor. So exclusive is the Best Western Pioneer inn because of the low room count and its quiet location. Parking is off-site about 100 meters away from the street-facing side of the Inn, but that is hardly an inconvenience since most of Lahaina is explorable on foot. Besides, if you drove everywhere it's $5 to $10 for parking at every venue. Just enjoy it and walk like they did back in the 1800s.

Enjoyable lodging at Lahaina pierPosted Feb 14, 2012
Pros: comfort and location
Cons: second floor access via stairs only
Location: adjacent to main Lahaina docks, next to banyan tree arts & crafts marketplace
Historic building with nice modern rooms, friendly and helpful staff, extremely convenient for Lahaina port activities such as whale watching boat trip, near to novice surfing area, free wireless. We arrived on Friday night and there was a talking parrot, good bar band which stopped at a reasonable hour, good food in the attached restaurant. Only minus was lack of an elevator, but with only two stories that is a minor inconvenience unless you have trouble with stairs. We would stay there again.
