We stayed here for a week in September 2011. We couldn't have been happier. The room was spacious and well maintained, location was great, staff was friendly, and breakfast was good. When we return to Maui, we will be staying at the Plantation Inn.

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the Plantation Inn for our honeymoon in December, 2011. There is much to love about the place. First, the location is perfect. It was a short walk to Front Street, where all the action is, but tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood, which gave us restful nights. The staff was friendly and... More

NO CROWDS DURING CHRISTMAS, which is AMAZING. they have a washer and dryer (for lots of quarters), which is great on a long... More

We had another great stay at the Plantation Inn. Where else can you spend an entire day by the pool and be the only guests there? That was surprising since the Inn was full. Everyone must have been visiting the fabulous restaurants and shops that are just steps away. The Inn is amazingly quiet even though it is in the... More

I'd say you have to make the trip to Lahaina just to stay here and attend the Old Lahaina Lu'au. The rooms were very clean and spacious and had real character, and was not as "kitch" as I thought that some of the photos on the internet had made it look. It has recently been renovated. We definitely had that... More

Nov 2 - Nov 11, 2011. The past five years we have stayed at the Plantation Inn. It is an awesome B&B. Cleanliness (room and grounds), breakfast, "entire staff" and location are excellent. The rooms are "classy". You forget you are not in your own home. Thanks to the entire staff for helping make our vacation "THE BEST EVER"........

We recently stayed for two nights at the Plantation Inn in Lahaina. This was a very peaceful, beautiful place with only 20 rooms. The rooms are a good sized.

This little b&b is pretty, well maintained and very close to the main front street of Lahaina. It has the look and feel of an old southern plantation, all the rooms have lanais with a rocking chair which adds to this. The room itself is spacious but has a 'tired' feeling but that again also adds to the charm as... More
