Stayed here whilst recovering post Haleakala trek. Excellent location next to the Banyan tree park, just by the wharf and next to the library. Can't be beat with stores downstairs and Front st steps away. My room was lovely and very large with a great lanai overlooking the Banyan tree. Staff here, katherine and Anne were super helpful. Anne was a god -send when my trip to Molokini was canceled. My only problem was lugging my bags up the steps (no elevator) with my sore sore knees post trek.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Pioneer Hotel in downtown Lahaina. The restored 1800 historic hotel had lots of charm. The Hotel wasn't very crowded in August, thus it was pretty quiet. We had a room overlooking the patio and ate our breakfast on our deck each morning. We enjoyed being in the center of town as we were close to everything.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the patio and was quiet.

My daughter and I recently landed at Pioneer Inn completely by accident. After 18 hours on airplanes, we arrived on Maui to find that it was too late to check into the apartment we had rented. I desperately searched for a hotel under $300 and found only the Pioneer Inn. We drove to Lahaina from Kahalui, and I was pleased to see the vibrancy and action happening on front street, even though we were looking for somewhere quiet. We were checked in by Amber, who was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. She asked if we would prefer a room overlooking the action, or a quieter room overlooking the pool. We opted for the quieter room. This is a historic hotel, and the room reflected that. Not very large, but updated and very clean, with a lovely little veranda and plantation shutters to let in the breeze.
The hotel restaurant was good, service was good, food was good, though not outstanding on all counts; it was still very palatable and pleasant. Got a burger and it was as described and cooked as ordered ( no small feat, these days).
The bed in the room was GREAT, just what my aching, airplane-seat tortured body needed. Our bags were brought up by a very cheerful and energetic young Man ( we were moving my daughter to school via airline, so our bags were big and heavy!).
Shower in the morning was very good, hot, fast. I would have preferred a bit more variety on the shower head, but am used to the single option at Best Westerns generally.
Breakfast was o.k., not outstanding, and service was a bit looser than at dinner, but still completely acceptable.
Location was excellent, Anna upon checkout was very helpful and striving to please in the European manner, which was very nice to encounter in the u.s. and Hawaii especially.
All around great stay. I will definitely return and stay longer than the one night. Mahalo!

Room Tip: Pool view was quiet and had a nice view of the ocean across the park.

For the relatively small amount of money I spent, I had expected a standard Best Western in Lahaina a few blocks from Front St. I was amazed to find it located right on the harbor off Front. Very quaint and you absolutely could not have a better Lahaina location. The room was small, but enough for our needs. Air conditioning, in addition to a ceiling fan. Nice staff, but the big deal about this is that you are right off Front Street in the middle of everything Lahaina has to offer. Can't do better than this!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a balcony.
