My wife and I stayed at the cabin for 7 nights. The cabin has plenty of room, wonderful views, and the temperature was nice and cool at night due to the open breeze. We loved the view of Waimea Canyon from the deck especially for sunrise and sunset. Canyon Drive is very very close to the cabin which made for... More

We had a two room suite (Hibiscus) for two nights at the Inn. It has all the charm of an historic building, with all necessary amenities such as bathroom and shower updated to modern standards. The bed was fantastic and it was very quiet (and dark) at night. Patrick and Carol were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is perfect,... More

Mahalo and glad to hear you had a great time! Just to clarify; we do have two breakfast options in town with another cafe opening in a week or two. In addition to these options, are the Big Save Grocery, Ishihara Market, Aloha in Paradise Espresso, and Subway (which does serve breakfast sandwiches). Sounds as if this group was looking... More

Stayed at the Inn for 1 night and the cottage for 2 nights. Pay for the upgrade to the cottages! It had a magnificent view of the canyon and a wide variety of wildlife right in the backyard. Carol (the manager) and Patrick (the owner) did everything to ensure any problems were taken care of.

DO NOT STAY HERE! I informed the woman who answers the phone that I would not be in until after 8pm - she told me the name of my room and said that the door would be unlocked for me. When I arrived, my room was locked. I called every number I had for the house (it is not a... More

Foremost- we are in the "Fun Business"- we regret that Megan had complications with her stay that kept the Fun from happening. We can say however, that we have after hours check-ins almost daily for our various properties. They happen consistently without a hitch. I suspect, that because Megan chose to book her room through a third party (booking.com), it... More

We booked a room for 3 nights. The host was very friendly and although we arrived at night everything was managed for our arrival. Unfortunately the room was covered with bugs. It was quite disgusting to see how they ran over every edge of the furniture when switching on the lights. It was hard to fell asleep kowing them around.... More

We stayed one night at Inn Waimea so we could be close to the Canyon during a week-long visit to Princeville on the other side of the island. The location was perfect, staff friendly and accommodating, and the room clean and airy. Waimea is a small town, so we could walk to dinner, shopping and shave ice. As a bonus,... More

We made a spontaneous decision to head from Princeville to Waimea to do some hiking and found this place and booked the large ground floor room. It was very clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. It's not fancy but the proximity to the beach for watching the sunset, town for dinner and breakfast and... More

Although I loved the proximity to town and the beach for morning walks and evening sunsets, the Bamboo Suite was by far the dirtiest room I have ever stayed in. The photo's online looked great, but they do not represent an accurate picture. From the used washcloth hanging on the towel bar, to the dry rot in the bathroom, torn... More

Aloha~ It appears that Karen may have caught us on a rare "Bad Day" and this is one of those cases where several small things added up to be a bigger problem. We wish we would have had the opportunity to explain these circumstances to Karen. We had been working on a "Refreshing" of this unit. In our efforts to... More

Inn Waimea is perfectly situated in the quiet, historic town of Waimea on the west end of Kauai. It was a great location for hiking the numerous trails, many less than 30 minutes away. The town is full of tiny restaurants, great for breakfast and plate lunches, but dinner options are a bit more limited; you might need to venture... More

Our ground floor room was spacious, well appointed and especially the bathroom was very well done, with a huge step-in shower, also good for weel chair users. No breakfast but enough places around on walking distance.

“First floor room was large with a separate sitting room, but probably not the best of the Inn. It would have been nicer to be upstairs.”
