I absolutely felt I got my money's worth. The hotel was the cheapest on the island so obviously there are some cosmetic flaws, but I felt it had everything I needed. Lori checked us in the first night and she was extremely welcoming and nice. Our room was clean, we had our own deck area, fridge, sink, silverware/plates, comfy beds.... More

I've never written a review before. Our stay at mokihana was a nightmare. The rooms are 1980's ugly. There are hard disgusting twin beds that can't be pushed together. The rooms were sweltering hot - unbearable. We requested a fan from the office and they finally gave us one - which broke 24 hours later. We called to let them... More

Overall we had a pretty good stay at the Castle Mokihana - we were rarely there so it was great to not have to spend a lot of money. The room was comfortable, bit outdated but thats ok. Only issue with the room is the lack of aircon which was tough in summer. The fan didn't really work and was... More

Let's start off with the good stuff! The location is amazing! 7 mi from the airport. It was about $25 for a taxi for my wife and I. And we took a short walk down the street to a local restaurant, the food was great! The landscape is nice, the pool is great, outdoor kitchen and shuffle board is really... More

We were late arrivals so the security guard had to give us our keys since the front desk isn't staffed all night. The rooms are two twin beds that can't be pushed together with large sliding doors looking right at the beach. This is the cheapest hotel on the island as well. The security guard was extremely loud with her... More

Older style hotel, but very clean. The room was small with no TV, which was fine for us. We didn’t go to Hawaii to watch TV. No AC, but that was ok too. The cross breeze from the ocean only a few feet away actually felt really nice. You have to sleep with the windows open or you’ll burn up.... More

We wanted to travel to Kauai on a tight budget over spring break this year, so when we found the Mokihana at about 75.00 a night, we went for it. Let me say, first of all, this is not a fancy resort and it is definitely NOT for anyone wanting the luxury of resort life. However, if you're looking for... More

Lived here for 10 days last week. The hotel has an awesome location. The "beach" is right there. We did swim there, but it's not a friendly beach. Rocks and strong currents. Kinda fun, but it's not a swimming beach. Kapaa town is close which is really nice. Just over the road you will find Safeway, Food Pantry, Starbucks etc.... More

I chose this hotel for the location and price. I wasn't expecting much, a comfortable bed, a pool, ocean view. That is exactly what I got. This is not a fancy place, that's why it's cheap. The room was clean, fresh towels. I had a little fridge to keep my food and beer cold. My room was on the ground... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here over 4th of July weekend, and it was awesome. Our room was clean and had a nice little kitchen. We used the outside grill to make killer kabobs, then picnicked on the grass. Swam in the pool. Watched one of the other guests walk on a tightrope slung between two palm trees. We were... More
