My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Pioneer Inn for one night in April because of its proximity to the Lahaina Luau. We highly recommend this hotel. The location is perfect, right on the harbor and in the extensive shopping area, with the Lahaina Historical Society and Banyan park right across the street. The Banyan tree in the park is absolutely enormous and I read that it may be the largest tree by width in the U.S. The hotel is a real bargain, costing less than $200 for the night. The room was a good size and had a nice balcony to an inner courtyard. The restaurant associated with the hotel was OK, a typical hotel meal.
We were very impressed with Mark, the person manning the front desk. He was extremely welcoming with a sincere smile at all times. Just a real nice guy. His good mood is contagious and he is an important part of the hotel experience. It was easy to get to the Luau from the Pioneer Inn. The staff can call a cab, which will be ready when you are, and the ride to the fantastic Luau is only about ten minutes.
One important note: after the Luau we recommend taking a cab instead of walking back to the hotel. We started walking back to the hotel after the Luau at about 8:45pm and someone immediately started to follow us. There was no question about it, a creepy situation. We saw him following us and we didn’t feel safe, we turned back and he mumbled something and he turned back. We got a cab in front of the Luau and took it back to the hotel. That is no reflection on the hotel since the Luau is not close to the hotel. Just a cautionary note. In summary, the Best Western Pioneer Inn is an excellent choice if you are staying in the Lahaina area. less
