From the outside, it looks like a motel but when you go inside, you'll see the hidden gems this place has. Keep in mind it doesn't have air conditioning in the room but the town itself is abut 2,500 feet above sea level. Charming room with a rustic charm. Large flat screen TV makes it very nice to watch cable...

We spent one night in a newly renovated room with a kitchenette. Loved the quirky ranch style. The staff were friendly and the room was clean, really comfortable and had a great shower (much appreciated after a tough uphill cycle that day). It's very close to shops and cafes. We'd happily stay there again. Rated as 4 as can't comment...

After a great visit to the historic Parker Ranch, we checked in to a lovely renovated room (the style made us think of HGTV's Fixer Upper) - it was huge and very comfortable. Also convenient to food (a James Beard restaurant at the base of the driveway or a short drive to a TripAdvisor top 10 "best burger' joint with...

I booked this room pretty last-minute and was lucky enough to get one of the newly renovated rooms . What a lovely room . There's cable-TV a little fridge and lots of room to spread out . The staff are lovely and could not have been more accommodating. Thank you so much for everything

We booked one of the remodeled rooms and were pretty pleased. The bed was new, nice kitchen and bathroom. Only real complaint was there was no dresser. We stayed a week and we needed to pile our clothes on the breakfast table and bedside tables. Rather annoying. They had a nice continental breakfast every morning.

I've stayed at the Kamuela Inn prior to the renovations. I'm loving the new rooms!!! The sheets are luxury quality. The rooms are very private considering they are close to each other. It's always a pleasant stay at the Kamuela Inn!!!

We often stay here when we visit Waimea. The lovely grounds, spectacular view, comfy rooms, and very ample breakfast at a reasonable price...and convenient address. What more could we ask? We will return.

The Inn looked amazing. The rooms were immaculate, beds were extremely comfortable, the decor was amazing, it really felt like home. The complimentary continental breakfast in the morning topped off a great stay.

Excellent visit as usual -- love the updates, friendly staff, accommodating management- we return to the kamuela inn most years and the renovations have brought it to a new level but it remains a friendly, relaxing country inn.

Up on hill behind the main drag (aka away from traffic noise). Lovely staff. Not a luxury hotel, but better than good infrastructure. Restaurants a five minute walk away. Sites of north west very accessible.
