I was raised in Kamuela, Hawai'i. For this visit, it was not possible to stay in my youngster years house; therefore, I reserved 3 nights at this wonderful location (my mother accompanied me on this trip). It lacks the remote locations and/or views of B&B's in town, yet the reason why we stayed - it's within walking distance of central...

It was a lovely property and a cozy little room! The complementary breakfast in the morning was great and I even bought a bag of the local tea they had available! The staff was friendly but not overly attentive, they were genuinely interested in my replies and made me feel welcome

We were on a road trip and just need a place to sleep. It was the closest place available. It look like a typical Motel but very good firm bed and an excellent breakfast. We were surprised and satisfied.

Had an amazing weekend at the Kamuela inn! The room was perfect, clean & cozy. My kids enjoyed the free breakfast the most! LOL. We were in walking distance from Hawaiian style cafe, Merrimans, the park & most importantly the Waimea Christmas Parade (which was our reason for the trip). The staff was friendly & very accommodating. Who ever is...

Perhaps Waimea is just expensive but we were very disappointed in our standard room which cost $140 after tax.Very small, very dated, VERY SPARTAN and no wifi available in our room. The staff were very apologetic and advised our room was scheduled for renovations next year. I was allowed sit in the dining room until 9:30 pm to use the...

The Kamuela Inn is a great place as a low budget option for a stay in Waimea. Ask to stay in the updated rooms. We stayed in an updated room one day (which was great) and we stayed in a non-updated room the next day (which was really outdated).

Quiet, clean, beautiful setting & wonderful friendly staff. Close to shopping, restaurants & coffee shops & hiking trails close by. Excellent performing arts center in town with a great selection of acts & fabulous traditional Hawaiian singing,slack key guitar & ukulele.

Aloha Joe, Thank you for your thorough review. It gives other travelers a picture of our wonderful town and all that it has to offer. Our owner, Tim Bostock, was the creative mind behind Kahilu Theatre's 2016/17 Season. Thankfully, he is able to dedicate more time this year to our inn renovations, events and specials. Look forward to more great...

Mahalo Alohtreetrimmers! We love when our guests appreciate our complimentary breakfast. It's an amenity that most guests don't look for when shopping for hotels, but it really is a huge savings. Not only do you save $$, but you start your day off right, especially with our Roy's Kona Coffee blend...YUM!!! Visit us again soon, whether for business or pleasure,...

The Inn is conveniently located, near restaurants and Long's and is a short walk to "town." While recognizing this is paniolo country, I prefer the previous motif. There was not sufficient light to read by (except in the bathroom); the light bulbs extended beyond the shade, so the bare bulb shone in your face. The complimentary breakfast was good and...

If you're looking to spend time in a cozy Inn environment away from the typical big hotel tourist-type spot, THIS IS IT! Last time my family stayed at the Inn was about 10 yrs. ago. There are new owners now, and they've begun renovating the rooms and suites. We stayed in one of the older kitchenette suites with 3 beds...

Aloha Kori, Thank you for choosing Kamuela Inn and for your wonderful review. Great suggestion about having an informative brochure about restaurants and grocery stores. I've seen little binders in B&B's, so why not here? We'll put something together in the new year! Please do visit again for the only Cherry Blossom Festival in Hawaii! It will not disappoint.
