Best Western Pioneer Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location: next to the Banyan tree, across the street from the wharf, and right on Front Street. The bar and grill is better than expected.

Wonderful staff - outstanding location - several parking options - great central location for activities all over Mauai

very nice Historic building ,At harbour and jumping point for daytrips to mariitime boat trips and Lani

Great location in the heart of town! Friendly, accommodating staff. Large rooms. We had 3 adults and had a king bed plus a double which worked well. We missed having a microwave but that was the same complaint my in-laws had a the much more expensive Westin! Our only real complaint was the poor air conditioner struggled to handle the very humid weather we had on some of the days. Other than that, we were very happy as we were not looking for a resort experience.

We had a nice experience with the staff , had a corner room with a great view.

Best location in Lahania, lots of character and well maintained and very clean

I loved the historic building, the architecture was great. The location of this hotel was perfectly set in the middle of front street shops, restaurants and bars. I appreciated the cooler in the room as well as the pool, it was great!

We always enjoy staying at The Pioneer Inn. The history of the building is wonderful. It is located right at the harbor on Front Street. Be prepared to haul your luggage up the stairs as there are no elevators in this charming old building.

The location was perfect. Right in the center of all the shops and restaurants in lahaina with a beautiful marina view. Can not beat the location if you are staying on this side of the island. However, the room itself isn’t all that spectacular. Every room does have a balcony which was very nice for sipping your coffee in the morning but other than that it’s jsut a mediocre room. The hotel is very old and looks it’s age. Some updating would help. We also had a bad bug problem in our bathroom.

The air conditioner fans were so loud it was difficult to sleep at night. The price for the rooms was fine but not worth it given that we had four fairly poor nights of sleep

Trouble finding the hotel because it only say pioneer inn not best western pioneer inn. I was expecting a much better place.

Nice place and good location. Clean and cozy Should be little bit cheaper Older amenities

Our room was pretty small and too close to Front street and the late night noise.

Nice place. Great location. Directly across from harbor if planning a cruise. Downtown historical Lahania within walking distance great food and shops. We did not have an ocean view, but our lanai opened up directly onto the very dirty pool. We checked in about 8 p.m. and by morning the pool was crystal clear. The open air courtyard had trees, thus the falling leaves and twigs dirtying up the area, but the friendly staff were present during the day maintaining the grounds. Upon checking in there was a performance (one man show) off of the lobby. The show was already in progress so we couldn't go in but the manager came out to tell us to keep it down because our conversation (me and the clerks) was disrupting the performance. No joke. The "free" parking was a block and a half away and was also public pay parking, so the spots limited and in no way being guarded. But alas our Kimos rental did not get broken into. While old the rooms have been recently updated and were comfortable.

Had a problem with single bed. Paid a lot of money for a uncomfortable bed. Will not do this again. Unacceptable

Only place in town. Small, clean and comfortable.

Love the location and it's walking distance from shops, tourist attraction and lots of wonderful restaurants. If you like the vintage feel, this is the place. The rooms are on the second floor above the local shops. Pack light as you have to carry your bags up two short flights of stairs. The room is decent and comfortable. This hotel has eco friendly practices with the updated plumbing to minimize water waste, the TV remote is eClean.
