The staff at this hotel were all nice. The issue is simple; this is an old property. That is likely not going to change due to the historic nature. In addition to be old the should do a better job with what they have. The bed could have been more comfortable. The sheets should have been of a better quality....

We stayed here recently and were very pleased, a traditional old hotel, very helpful staff, rooms very clean. Positioned right by the harbour and convenient for day trips. The town itself has interesting shops and a good choice of places to eat. We found the local bus service very useful and only 4 dollars each per day for a trip...

If you want a rustic place with history, close to everything without spending a fortune this is a great place. Anniversary trip to Maui with nice accommodations, restful nights and sightseeing in the day this is a great spot.

Downtown Lahaina and across from harbor with easy access to various ferry rides for dinner cruises to snorkeling. Historic area with variety of cute shops and dining. Grocery store is close. Rooms are small but vary adequate. If you've long hair or in need of conditioner bring your own. They provide beach/pool towels. We didn't pay extra for parking our...

Stayed here January 2017, I was very pleased. The location in Lahaina was great. The beds very comfortable and the room had all the facilities you require. The staff where friendly and helpful too. Plenty of pro's for this property. The only downfall on our stay was an inconsiderate neighbour who had no idea how to talk or behave in...

We chose BW Pioneer Inn cause we wanted to be right in the heart of Lahaina. The Inn is right in front of the dock where whale watching tours are in & out all day. One evening a cruise ship came in for a few hours (who does Maui in a few hours?!) There are many great shops & restaurants...

Great place to stay in Lahaina, Hi. Right next to Front street and eateries. Comparable prices. On the list of National old hotels. Old fashioned. If you are looking for room service or something of this nature it is not available. Built 1922 with great Lanai's.

Always stay at the Pioneer Inn before we head to our Time Share. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Only drawback is - no elevator. You'll have to carry your suitcases to your room and all rooms are on the second floor. Advantage - you're on the Harbor, easy access to boat tours (Whale Watches). Restaurant connected to the Hotel serves...

Had a wonderful stay at the Pioneer Inn starting with our check in. Charming host gave me all the information I needed. The parking is across the street - not far. She mapped it for me. While I was nervous about always getting a spot there, there always was one. The hotel is very old for Hawaii, and while it...

For anyone planning on a trip to Hawaii, I highly recommend Maui. If you are looking for something other than the cookie cutter "Resort Experience" consider the Best Western Pioneer Inn located on the Lahaina waterfront, at the Marina. It just drips with whaling history and is a take off and landing point for many water based activities. Rooms are...
