4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Stayed a couple nights here while in Maui. We had a great time. The rooms are nice. We had a great time drinking on the lanai facing front street and people watching. The restaurant downstairs serves a pretty good breakfast.

We had a wonderful stay at the Best Western Pioneer Inn. The rooms were clean and spacious with a small lanai (pool-facing) and mini-fridge. The pool was small but clean and the right temperature. We read books on the chairs while our children swam and frolicked. The hotel has beautiful landscaping around the pool, making it feel slightly hidden.

We ate breakfast 3 times at the hotel's restaurant and got prompt, pleasant service each time. Our children loved the open air restaurant and the daring birds that would wait to be feed scraps. The breakfast prices were a bit high, but we got a discount for staying at the hotel so it evened out.

The location of the hotel was the best part! We were right along the water and we got front row seats for watching the fireworks out over the water. We could walk next door to the artist's market. One morning, I got up early and went for a walk in the downtown area. It was peaceful to watch the small town waking up. We were also centrally located near several nice restaurants, an ice cream parlor, a museum and the location for our surfing lessons.

What a great stay!

The Pioneer Inn may not be a mega resort but just being in Maui is sometimes all you need. If you don't need all of the hoopla of a Mega Resort then this is the place. The only drawback is that you can't cook any meals. It is located right in the heart of Lahaina and close to everything. The front desk ladies are very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and bed is comfortable. You can't beat the price for the location. The breakfasts at the local restaurant were excellent. We would stay again.

Room Tip: If you don't want the birds to wake you early then get a room facing to the inside of the place.

We loved this hotel. The rooms are snug but comfortable. Each room has a porch. Ours overlooked the square rather than the inner court. It is a bit noisy at night since the hotel is in the center of town, so you will want to close your porch door until the music stops if you are going to bed early (or ask for an inner court room). We loved watching the people and the craft vendors in the square. The hotel is right next to the harbor - convenient for boat trips, etc. The restaurant is great and affordable. The pool looked inviting though we didn't use it.
