The car rental people recommended this place. We were here on business and forgot to make a reservation. We got a room reservation without any problem. Staff friendly. Loved the beautiful mountain scenary and the wild chickens really were fun to watch. They added to the old country feel. We were surprised that such a low priced hotel had a...

The Kauai Inn was the perfect place to stay. The location, continental breakfast, use of BBQ's, serenity, and service were all impeccable! First of all, the location was great because it was close to the airport and was centrally located on the island with regards to the road. We were able to check out all parts of the island as...

We didn't go to Kauai to stay at a mega resort, so if that is what you are looking for, you won't find it here. Instead, we wanted a quiet, low key pleasant atmosphere to make our home base. At the free morning breakfast, we could casually network with like-minded folks to plan/share our daily events. Tony and Joe also...

We visited Kauai in January as our belated Honeymoon. We were on the island for two weeks, and wanted to combine some camping & 'rustic' adventures with some time by the pool & staying at a nice place. The Kauai Inn served us perfectly. During the two weeks, we stayed at the Kauai Inn for total of 7 nights, but...

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay here. The room was very clean and relatively spacious, had a nice tub and shower, and the bed was really comfortable. The A/C was a little noisy, but that doesn't bother me at all. The free breakfast was delicious - pastries, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and tea. It does start a bit late...

About the only things the Kauai Inn has going for it are the helpful and couteous staff and the lush green lawns. It is located a long way from anything. If you don't have a car it requires a 20 minute walk along poorly lit industrial streets with no footpaths to get to the restaurants and shopping centre. Our room...

We stayed at the Kauai Inn for a couple of days after a stay at the Westin in Princeville. We booked through Expedia and got an extremely affordable rate. The room was old but extremely clean. It had a refrigerator and microwave and free wireless internet. The grounds were nice and tropical. We did not use the pool area but...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast each morning was enough to start your day. Breakfast consists of fresh fruit, English muffins, toast, bagels & sweet breads (such as blueberry & cinnamon). There is also juice, hot tea and coffee. The location on the island is great because you are centrally...

We had an amazing experience at this motel. It was really clean, not just the room but the grounds also. It was picture perfect! It was the perfect place for us to spend our honeymoon!

The Kauai Inn is situated approx 5-10 mins drive from Lihue airport. You have to drive by the docks to get to it (which made me think I'd taken a wrong turn!!) but the location and surroundings are actually very nice. We chose this hotel for location more than anything else as we knew we would be out and about...
