Great location, cute (v small) room but paper-thin walls which meant we could hear absolutely everything our neighbours had to say! On that basis, I wouldn't recommend staying here. We had the end room so I assume the middle rooms are even noisier. We did, however, appreciate the lovely lanai.

Who doesn't love Hanalei? The location is lush and remote, the mountains are beautiful and their are a number of places to enjoy, shop and eat. We loved the Hanalei Inn and found it to be a lovely, little inn. The five rooms are quaint and just 1/2 mile from downtown Hanalei and the amenities while dated are extremely clean.... More

The unit had everything we needed for a home type stay and loved the deck where we ate breakfast every morning. Bill was helpful and answered our questions, however, we felt there were a lot of little rules, like hanging our wet towels to dry on the deck railing; yet it was ok for the cats & chickens to eat...

No fuss accommodation. Bill the cats and chickens are a great family with a nice aloha. We had room 2, bed was very soft, everything was clean and tidy though and only a short walk to the beach and shops we would go back.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at this place two years in a row. Compared to the over-commercialized, super expensive resorts, this is a welcome respite. We were SO close the beach (2 blocks) and ate breakfast on our patio every morning. We love the cats and chickens that roam the property. Yes, it's really "rustic" (bugs, lizards, humid) --... More

Firstly, Bill the manager is fantastic. We called a number of times at the last minute to see if they had availability and he accommodated us each and every time. He also gave us some excellent food recommendations and let us keep our rucksacks on site after checkout. The accommodation was everything I had hoped for, it's certainly not a... More

Stayed for our last night in kauai and I was sadly disappointed. Firstly the bed had faded sheets for the 80's and did not look inviting or smell fresh. The whole room did not smell fresh, there was sand on the floor which tells me it didn't even get a sweep out. I felt ripped off by this place. Looks... More

Room is equipped with everything you need...and whatever you may need the staff is more than willing to provide...from laundry service...beach equipment...to sunburn care. The service was beyond expectation and the location was ideal. This place was cozy with remote vibe...and great scenery. Within walking distance to everything you need and close enough to bus stop if you don't want... More

I really loved the quiet, laid back nature of this tiny 5 unit inn. We stayed in #1, which was the closest to the road. At first this concerned me (b/c of potential noise), but it was surprisingly quiet. I loved the roaming wild chickens that became our pleasant alarm clock. Also, the two resident kitties were sweet. The room... More
