ALOHA! WE LOVE YOU KAUAI INN!! We stayed here 2 years ago before the Hotel Impossible episode aired and we loved the place then. We came back to this place after staying in several of the pricier beach resorts. Why we love this place: Location. Price. Old school Hawaiian vibe. NO RESORT FEES. NO EXTRA FEES. It's a cool location...

First of all we want to commend the whole staff at Kauai Inn. If we could give 5.5 star we would. Adam, Bud, Mae, Jessica, Glenda, Bryant, and others are the best with true hospitality and friendless. Lots of kindness and willing to accommodate their guests. When needed any help they were always on top of it. Very nice and...

Excellent welcoming. The best we received in Kauaï. Clean, quite. Nice pool Room good for vacations. Breakfast in morning : simple but good. Not far from restaurant, around 5 mn driving. Easy to reach all th coast, up to weimea. And of course, roosters as everywhere on this island.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days in March of 2017. The room we booked was very simple, but it had everything we needed.

Stayed here for 4 nights for our stay on Kauai. It was close to the airport and other locations we needed to visit and the price was much more reasonable than other places. It's definitely off the main road (a park and residential near by). Rooms were older but were clean and staff was friendly (as was the one resident...

Stayed one night in a room during a business trip, looking for an inexpensive place to stay close to Lihuie and this was perfect for that. Pluses – Friendly staff at the front desk, and a clean but not luxurious room. Not sure if it had air conditioning or not but had slatted windows that provided plenty of cool air....
