Steps from active Lahaina Harbor, this circa-1901 hotel offers a taste of the whaling town’s historic past. Simply furnished rooms have smallish bathrooms, mounted air-conditioners (not silent, but they do muffle the outdoor noise), and private balconies. Note that all rooms are up a flight of stairs. The quietest units face the garden courtyard—an outdoor dining area shaded by an enormous hala tree—but for people-watching from your veranda, get a room that overlooks Front Street. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and great, cheap drinks at happy hour.
