Experience the stunning natural glory of Maui from our historic hotel in Lahaina, the BEST WESTERN Pioneer Inn, located on the edge of Lahaina Harbor, the whaling capital of the Pacific. Few things in the world can approach the splendor of a Hawaiian sunset, and our hotel on Maui gives you the opportunity to take one in every evening. Our building, constructed in 1901, is a registered historic landmark from the plantation period. Its white columns and colorful roof contrasting with the surrounding greenery make it a sight to behold in its own right. You'll be just as impressed by what's on the inside of this front street, Eco-Friendly Maui hotel. Our 34 rooms are newly renovated and wired with Wi-Fi, with a pool that is open year-round. Our onsite restaurant, the Pioneer Inn Grill, serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, while the Whalers Saloon gives you a place to order drinks without having to travel away from our Lahaina hotel. We also have meeting and event space, including an outdoor gazebo that's ideal for weddings and Snug Harbor private dining room. We have everything you could want in a hotel on Maui. You can practically roll out of bed and into the water outside of our Lahaina Hotel, where you can go snorkeling, scuba diving, sport fishing, surfing, parasailing and whale watching. We are the only harbor view hotel on Maui. There are plenty of yachting options as well, including sunset dinner cruises, or you can catch the ferries to Lanai or Molokai. We are also a popular place to stay for employees of the State of Hawaii, Maui Divers, Transmarine Navigation and the US Navy. There's much to do on land, starting with the shops, restaurants, art galleries, and museums of the Historic District within easy walking distance of our hotel on Maui. Just behind our location is Banyan Tree Park, featuring a famously massive, 16-trunked banyan tree planted almost 150 years ago. Book your stay at the BEST WESTERN Pioneer Inn in Hawaii today!

Historic location, decent rooms

I am not the type that enjoys big brand hotels. This one felt more like a local hotel, and it is right in the center of the historic Lahaina town. There many places that are walking distance. I enjoyed staying there for 2 nights.

probably not a good idea to eat at the hotel. They give you a discount, but yelp ratings are poor, so I didn't even try.

Location and price VERY good

First off- Katherine checked us in and helped us each day. She is so friendly and obviously enjoys her work. The location is perfect for shopping, great view of a sweet sunset over the beach and watching huge ships. Shopping galore right out the back door. On the main street. Places to eat around and a Burger King if on a tight budget. Has a nice balcony. Most important thing is that the room and building is incredibly clean.!! The room was VERY small- we had 2 twin beds so not alot of room for suitcases. Queen bed would have been better. Oh- no elevator to the 2nd floor. But it was worth it. would stay again. the pool was warm and also clean. She gave us many tips on where to go sightseeing, snorkeling, shopping, eating, etc. A friend told me to go there, and she was spot on!!

great hotel and location

The hotel is located right on snug harbor. The room was a little small, but has a very nice large deck that looks into the old banyan tree. Walking distance from all the great shops and food lahaina has to offer. Not great for beach going, but there are lots of good beaches nearby. I would definitely stay here if I went back!

Trip to Maui

Our one night stay at Best Western Pioneer Inn was just the perfect start of our Maui vacation. We had a room with a balcony overlooking Front Street. It was so pleasant to wake up early and sit on the balcony with a hot cup of coffee.

Excellent staff and superb location

The hotel is in the center of Lahaina and easy to walk around the town. Free off site parking about a block away is adequate but detracts from the value. The rooms are very clean but noisy - the next door patrons were very loud. My room was facing the Banyon Tree and the tree was full of birds which did not have a bedtime voice!! Overall - a great place to stay and 1st rate staff.

Hi! on Lahaina!

Centrally located yet quiet at night for sleeping. Very pleasant balcony over looking the harbor on the right, banyans tree and magpies straight ahead and to the left are shops and restaurants. Plenty of entertainment and shops within walking distance. Music, art and good food are everywhere, Lots of icecream. Several historic sites are right there including the hotel. Hotel even have a scale to weigh our luggage for the return flight. FREE PARKING !!!

Central, charming, friendly

An old inn, nicely renovated, on the waterfront, near a beach. The hotel had old-fashioned decor with a wraparound porch. Free parking across the street was appreciated, as were the in room coffee maker, fridge, and good shower pressure. They also offered 15% off at the restaurant, but we ate elsewhere. Our clean, comfortable room faced the famous banyan tree with a glimpse of water. Some may have found it noisy, but we had no problem. The pool was being cleaned the day we were there, so we enjoyed the beach. Not a resort by any means, but certainly a nice place to stay in town. The room air conditioner was noisy, though. Our room was up a flight of stairs, and I am not sure about accessibility. The staff were hospitable, genuinely warm and helpful, thanks.
