We had to find a hotel for one more night before we left the island. Kauai Inn was where we went and I am so happy about it! The lovely lady at the reception is also the one that can help you around, make your stay as enjoyable as possible, answer all your questions, make you breakfast! I would go...

Reviewed 3 March 2016

Due to a late night arrival we needed a place to stay for one night before going to join our family in Poipu. I shopped around looking for something that was reasonable and found there isn't much in Lihue that fits the description of "reasonable". So I turned to Tripadvisor and The Kauai Inn caught my eye. Not being afraid...

We stayed here for 2 nights prior to a timeshare week up in Princeville. It was clean, comfortable and fantastic location. The breakfast was fresh and was a great place to meet others. We recommend Kauai Inn!

This Inn offers pretty old and dated rooms, but in the interesting style venue. Our triple room was quite small with tiny bathroom, but it was clean and tidy. The internet was unstable and A/C bit too loud. The staff was friendly and we were feeling safe, sleeping there. There is a lot of parking space around, but for a...

We had a late check-in (Like after 11 p.m.!) & the staff waited for us! Very comforting after driving through some seemingly very desolate area in the dark. Room was clean & comfortable. Meet some interesting & friendly people at breakfast.

Wish we could have stayed longer at the Kauai Inn! It is an excellent value and the gardens are lovely. It is located in a slightly out of the way place but with a car, that's not a drawback. Friendly staff, convenient laundry, nice little pool deck, decent breakfast and overall a pleasant experience. One thing we really liked is...

I've stayed here four times over the years. It's very reasonable, clean, and the breakfast is just enough to get you going. Close to the airport, shopping, and restaurants. Staff are very friendly, ask if you need anything and they will do their best to accommodate. Old style motel...but not lacking amenities. Highly recommend. You can't beat the accommodations for...

Saskatoon, Canada
Reviewed 28 January 2016

It is an out of the way "motel" near the port and the airport. The front desk clerk was very friendly and informative. The continental breakfast was good. The rooms need updating but they were clean. It is not on the ocean but is a short drive to the water and to restaurants. Great mountain view. Reasonable rates.

Having been to Kauai 5 times I knew that I would be spending very little time in the hotel. I had previously spent thousands on hotels each trip such as the Marriott and the like and felt like it was a complete waste of money. So I gambled and booked a room at the Kauai Inn. I couldn't have been...

We stayed 4 nights. The room was old fashioned and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. This is a great budget friendly inn. Minutes from the beach. Continental breakfast daily with fresh fruit and breads, coffee and tea. 24 hours.
