“Great place ,Great Location !”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Great hotel , My wife and I stayed here our last two nights on Maui , And wished we would have just stayed here the whole week.
Rooms were very clean and the atmosphere was real laid back and relaxing .
Staff was very helpful , Food at the restaurant was very good , And so many other shops and restaurants to go to .
Some real nice beaches in the area also , Great for snorkeling or diving.
The largest Banyan tree in north America is across the street , and has a great arts and crafts vendors selling there products.
The Cruise ships come here also , and it gets pretty busy when they are .
We live in Florida and its nice , But not like Hawaii , We`ll be back here again.

Room Tip: Street side Balcony room if possible.

Best Western's Pioneer Inn in Lahaina is the perfect couples' getaway. Within walking distance of shops, eateries, and the waterfront, it offers the historical grandeur of a century-old hotel with clean, convenient, updated modern amenities. The courtyard is secluded and shaded, the restaurant is open air and offers a tasty lunch menu (with healthy options!) and fun, yummy pupus for the evening happy hour. The coconut shrimp is especially scrumptious. We loved the view of the Banyan tree and the harbor from our lanai. Waking up to the bird calls was a truly spectacular. We hope to visit Pioneer Inn again, and again. The staff made us feel welcome and this was the perfect location for our stay on Maui.

Best Western in Lahaina was an all around great play to stay, and the bed was so comfortable we wanted to take it home! The location couldn't be better, and the hotel staff was great. I would highly recommend staying here!

This classic hotel in the heart of Lahaina is in a great central location. The historical significance of the property and the character of the room decor is very well done. Recommend the street front rooms with own lanai to enjoy the nature of the township. Staff were terrific.

Hotel itself is reasonable, possibly better value accommodation about (not at the resorts though), but nothing with the convenience of the Pioneer Inn's location, right in the heart of Lahaina, right on the wharf - and you should definitely be doing some activities based off the wharf while you are here!
The restaurant downstairs is pretty good value as well, and you get 15% off there if you're staying at the hotel.

In Maui, most hotels are expensive resorts. Pioneer Inn is a great option if you are looking for a reasonably priced accommodation in a nice historical town.

My room (number 29) was facing Banyan Tree Square. It was not as noisy as I expected. All loud music stopped around 9pm.

Good points of this hotel include:
- Great location in the city centre.
- Comfortable room with many amenities (including refrigerator, coffee maker).
- Lovely balcony to relax and enjoy the scenery.
- Free parking one block from the hotel (you can still park directly in front of the hotel to load/unload).
- Free and reliable wifi.
- Happy hour at the bar from 3pm to 6pm.

There are a few cons though:
- All rooms are located on the second floor and there is no elevator, you have to carry your luggage yourself, which was not a problem for me.
- Air conditioning is very noisy, but a ceiling fan is also available.
- Breakfast is not included in the room rate.

Room Tip: Rooms on Hotel street facing the Banyan Tree Square have the best view, the ones which are not next...
