I thought this place was great for the price and the area. No one really wants to go to Waimea. But when you wind up there, this is the place! Room was cozy, bed was super comfortable, great water pressure in the shower, what else do you need? Oh, their staff is very friendly and helpful, the utmost in professionalism.... More

I flew into Kona really late, and when I booked my room prior to traveling, they said they would have it ready for me before arriving. They sent me a very detailed email of where to go and what to do when I arrived late. They left the room light on and the key with the registration papers! Didn't have... More

We enjoyed our time in Waimea and found the Kamuela Inn resonably priced, more than comfortable, centrally located and very pleasant. In fact, it was the best value for what we received during a bicycle tour of the island. There was ample parking for those with cars, the grounds were charming and there were outside spaces to enjoy. The rooms... More

We had a nice stay here. It was clean in a good, central location and reasonably priced. They do a good job making your stay most enjoyable. Thie continental breakfast was good also and a good combination of standard items with some local specialties added.

This is a family run inn that is well located, well priced and has beautiful gardens yet being in the town of Waimea. If you are not a resort kind of person, this is a good choice. The prices include plenty of parking, basic breakfast and Wi-Fi (a bit unreliable). There's plenty to do in the town and around. The... More

Just about gets the job done in vacancy challenged Waimea. Good sized room but definitely worn and dated. Awful bed with plastic sheeting under the sheets. Makes you wonder what's been done in there before you. Tiny TV. OK sized fridge. Bathroom adequate. Pluses. Attractive, well kept grounds. Friendly staff. Quiet. Major negative. The nickel and dime gouging for extras.... More

KamuelaInn, Manager at Kamuela Inn, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that some travelers overlook the fact that we have the best room rates in Waimea and provide free parking, free in-room wi-fi, and a very generous complimentary continantal breakfast daily. They choose instead to focus on our charges for "extras," which is what they are -- extra. It would be foolish and unfair to other guests to... More

We stayed for two nights. The bed actually was a king - that much was ok. However it was an awful bed covered with a plastic sheet and cheap sheets. Not very comfortable especially in the Hawaii heat! The "hearty" breakfast isn't very much and while the room had a mini-fridge, nothing else was included. Extra towels? Costs extra. Kettle?... More

We were crossing the island and stopped in Kamuela (waimea) for the night. Got an excellent room for $99 that was very comfortable. The office clerk was very friendly and helpful. Morning continental breakfast was very good. Really liked the variety of ten or fruit jellies. Very nice outside areas

Good central location and a few hundred feet off the main street. So it’s quiet. Good sleeping quality. Neat, clean place with a big, well-kept grassy front yard with a big tree and a hammock. Very pleasant reception by nice people. Good restaurants and a big shopping center and a big Long’s (CVJ) Drugstore within walking distance. Small rooms, get... More

I stayed here with a school group and really enjoyed this lodge. My room was clean and had a TV plus WiFi. No air conditioning or fans in the room, which was evident by the musty smell that pervaded my nostrils upon entering, but opening the windows to let the air run through the room fixed that problem. Each room... More
