This little four room inn in the center of town is handy, clean, inexpensive, and "good enough." It is not especially attractive, luxurious or service oriented. People are nice enough, just not around much. The place is adequate for sleeping, changing and showering, but not a place to hang out (unless you just want to read a book, I suppose....

Mahalo David for your feedback. We encourage communication regarding our services. We would like to provide a little more information. It should be noted that David stayed in our least expensive unit. While we would characterize this unit as "Affordable, Clean, Comfortable, and Historic"; we feel that while we're sure it was not David's intention, "Cheap" leaves a more negative...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn Waimea. We stayed in the Bamboo Suite, which had a lovely view and was very comfortable. The beach is a short walk away, close enough to hear the waves crashing on the shore at night. Patrick was a wonderful host! He gave us suggestions for great places to eat and directions to...

We stayed at The Inn Waimea's Beach Cottage that is across the street from the Inn and just a few yards from the beach. The cottage is old plantation style and so nicely decorated and very clean. It is old and the owners are still in the process of renovating the exterior but the inside is so cute and we...

We loved our few nights at the Inn Waimea. As the other reviews indicate, it is right in town, so you can walk to the shops and cafés, and you have the beach right there (with spectacular sunsets. The pier and Niihau add to the photo ops). And, you are close to the canyon and Polihale and Salt Pond Beach....

This was a very comfy place in a small town. It's near a beautiful state park featuring "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific" so if you want to be near great hiking, but not actually camping out this place is good. The room we had was a suite -- a nice size sitting room with a fridge and a separate...

We are quite pleased with this little Inn. There isn't a lot lodging in Waimea and most of them are overpriced. But this place is very reasonably priced and located in the middle of the town Waimea. Ocean is just back yard. Good restaurant Wrangler is right around the corner (since it is the same owner, you get 10% to...

Patrick was very welcoming and keen to make sure we got the most out of our visit to Waimea and the surrounding area. The Inn was a lovely change from impersonal hotels. Tip: Make sure you watch the sunset from the nearby pier

I booked my entire trip just over 24 hours before flying to Kauai. My initial Airbnb for the first two nights in Waimea fell through, and I was able to make on the fly arrangements with Patrick. Patrick is a real estate pro who moved to the island from the Seattle area, and his approach is on the one hand...

Everthing was great! Waimea is the perfect spot to visit the waimea canyon but alos very close to some nice beaches. Patrick was very kind and helpful in planing our stay in waimea (he has many good hints for trips).

Came to Kauai for work and was happy to be able to stay in a West Kauai Lodging rental again. The Pali Cottage was quaint and clean, and a prime location for me to get to work. It was peaceful and quiet up in Waimea Heights, and had pretty much everything I needed. View was amazing. Property manager is friendly...

“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.”
