Recommend room 17; closest to stairwell and shortest distance to haul your bags; plus excellent view of the banyan tree and the wharf; Great place to view all the boats and Saturday morning crafts sale under the banyan tree. Close to everything; Go sit at Mary's and see the Luau for the price of a few appetizers. Fleetwood's place is exorbitantly expensive. Some of the best private art galleries I have ever seen; that alone is worth the trip. The whole area is a Mecca for a traveler. If you ever want to be in the middle of paradise this is as close as you will come to it.

Room Tip: room 17; if you get it you will know why!!!

We visited Maui some years ago and I always said if we went back I would check out this Hotel, am I ever glad we did, there were 4 of us all adults and we shared a room, with a King Size bed and a Queen size Murphy Bed!!, the room was Brilliant, huge and very comfortable.I asked on checkout, how many of these rooms they have and there is sadly only 1. All the rooms are on the second floor and there is no elevator, so be prepared, it is good exercise.Our room faced a courtyard with lots of seating and a swimming pool. The staff are all very attentive, the hotel was built in 1901 and is very well kept up. There are many restaurants and shops in Lahaina and it gets pretty busy, a great place to people watch. Right next to the Harbour we went on a Whale Watch and were really grateful when we got back and had to walk a few steps to our Hotel. I think the Pioneer Inn is well suited for Couples, most of the people there were over 50 and many had stayed before. If we go back to Maui this is where we will stay

Room Tip: We faced the Courtyard and it was very quiet

Great place to stay if you want to experience Lahaina at your own Lanai. Bit pricey for the size and having to schlep your luggage up a flight of stairs but we love sitting and watching the colorful world walk buy.

Extremely helpful staff, very clean, great location. Parking a few blocks away, but located in center of congested shopping district on the waterfront. Convenient walking to everything. Only complaint is noisy room A/C fan. Employee who carried our two large suitcases upstairs (no elevator) declined to accept a tip...I was amazed!

Stayed here 30years ago and it is still the best place in Maui. On the harbor, middle of lahaina, off street parking, middle of town. This hotel still has the same charm as 30 years ago but modernized and still quaint. Ask for street or banyan tree side. Rooms are all second floor but with patio.
Fantastic staff. What an enjoyable stay.

Our stay was to celebrate our anniversary/birthday . Being local, we know how noisy Lahaina can get at night, and how old this Inn is, so expected noise, and creaky floors. We were wrong. Our room overlooked the courtyard and was peacefully quite, lacking road/tourist noise and did not even hear other guests coming/going in hallway.
Shower especially nice, instant hot water with very good pressure.

This wonderful historic Inn exudes character and charm. It offered everything we needed for a two night stay. The room was small but comfortable and the lanai offered lovely views of the park and waterfront. The mini fridge was a bonus and the ice machine was easy to access. What a fantastic location! Just walk out the door and you have a huge selection of shops, restaurants, entertainment and sightseeing trips. We didn't use the pool but it appeared to be a peaceful area for relaxing. We had delicious breakfasts in the dining room and used the discount coupons we were given. The two ladies (Anne & Katharine) that we met at the front desk were very accommodating and pleasant. This hotel was a great find and comes highly recommended.
