We stayed 3 nights here while in Maui for my husbands birthday. It was an older hotel/motel right by the fishing pier. The room was typical motel style but with a great porch/lani. We awoke early and sat out on the deck and watched the fishing boats depart. Loved it!!!! Restaurant was great and parrot was good company for breakfast....

Beautiful older building on the marina. We sat outside and drank coffee in the morning overlooking corpus ft the park. Free parking and really nice indoor and outdoor restaurant. Traditional Hawaiian food. Tons of shopping nearby.

Stayed here first time about 1981, price was $35 per nite and well worth it. Now at $175 it looks a whole lot worse. Lanai paint peeling badly. This property is now a big hotel chain, that put off the maintenance. Don't stay in room 17, the garbage man lifts the whole rubbish bin level with and inches from your...

What a pleasant surprise! Located right in Lahaina, able to walk to all the local sites and restaurants. Lovely old historical building, well maintained. Room was spacious and we enjoyed eating our breakfast on the lanai. Service was exceptional, including free use of beach towels on the days we went to the beach. Only downsides, and these are minor: 1)...

First time in Lahaina, could not have stayed in a better place. Greeted by Katherine late evening after a long flight from the UK.

We wanted an inexpensive, "non-Resort" Hotel in the City of Lahaina for the night before checking into a Resort Hotel on Kaanapali Beach. The Pioneer Inn was a great combination of excellent value, gracious service, convenient on-premises restaurant for dinner and breakfast and a great mattress. We couldn't have asked for more, as it was just what we were hoping...

We stayed 5 nights here and can not say enough about how great the experience was. FREE PARKING close by, immediate access to shops and activities, a wonderful restaurant with a terrific happy hour, a resident talking parrot, a private, peaceful pool, and a nice room with an outside deck looking out on the ocean. All of this for a...

We booked via Booking.com and were confirmed a deluxe/king room. However, when we checked-in we were offered a standard queen, due to a booking error. As compensation we were offered the difference in price back, plus free a la-carte breakfast for 2. A more than fair deal. Very quaint hotel. Better place to be than the many non-discript concrete boxes...

My room location was overlooking the court yard area. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable, & a great value for your $$$. From the time I checked in to the time I checked out all of the staff were very friendly & very helpful with any questions about the area.
