Kauai Inn was perfect for this seasoned traveler .It's in a great spot for visiting island- and minutes from airport..Tucked away behind the harbor and next to a river where kayak rentals are available. Quiet, comfy rooms and big breakfast every morning at pool area. Pictures are accurate and setting pretty. Folks I met that stayed there were long time...

We went to Kauai on our honeymoon this past October. We wanted to do a fairly inexpensive trip to Kauai although many said that just wouldn't happen. I did a little bit of research and I found the Kauai Inn. All of the reviews were really great and it seemed like a quiet little Inn. We arrived to the Kauai...

This is small, family run hotel located not far from both airport and sea port. To some its location may be a bit too remote. There is no restaurant or bar at or near the hotel, closest ones being at Anchor Cove Mall / Nawiliwili area. Near the reception a wending machine is available with soft drinks/water... Room was very...

If you want a quiet, friendly, low key and inexpensive place to stay on Kauai, this is it. The Kauai Inn is located in Lihue in the center of the island if you are driving around by car. It's located in a residential area near the boat harbor with a small park across the street. Good view of the mountains...

Booked this on Expedia figuring it was just a cheap run down dive. We were only staying part of the night booked on an early flight to Hilo. To our surprise, it was a gem! The front office staff was so inviting and welcoming. She took her time with us and showed us around and invited us to come back....

Our second two week stay was even better than our first here, because we knew what to expect and had an idea of locations we wanted to explore again. The Kauai Inn is comfortable, friendly, accomodating, and laid back. Just what we want in a property where we stay. Centrally located on the island, so visiting the North is as...

If you want to stay in a peaceful hotel that is "off the beaten path", Kauai Inn is perfect. It is a short drive from the airport...close to restaurants....clean...and the employees were very friendly and attentive. Our room was ready when we went to check in at noon! It isn't an elaborate hotel with a lot of glam, a big...

This was our third time staying here and they never dissappoint us. It isn't a 4 star hotel but it is nice and clean and would suggest it to anyone.

This inn is off the beaten path, with a grand view of mountains in the back. The rooms were "walk in your bare feet clean". And for those who love the tv - it had to be at least a 42 inch flat screen. There was a great cross through breeze in our room so I didn't need to use...

We stayed here one night as it is near the airport and we got in so late at night. Our room was clean, the air conditioner was loud, but welcome and we slept well as we had some jet lag. We loved the roosters outside and the mountain view was so serene. Breakfast was just perfect--fresh fruit and some breads,...
