My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night prior to setting out on a multi-day hike. We were looking for a no-frills budget stay, and that's pretty much what we got. Parking and internet were included, the location is good, and there's a beautiful ocean view. The location, while a little hard to find the first time out, is... More

The scheduled start date for our renovation is scheduled for late August/early September. We will be open for business during the renovation since one building will be renovated at a time.

This hotel has a pretty great little room. You get a refrigerator, sink, and counter space. The beds are very uncomfortable but you get use to it after the first night. There no AC or ceiling fans and it could get hot pretty quickly. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here if you're looking for... More

So, you’ve scoured the internet for affordable accommodation on Kaua’i and stumble across the Mokihana with ocean view rooms for just $100 a night. You know there must be big compromises somewhere. Should you book it? Well read on. It’s not all that easy to find with a very small sign. To help, it’s down the laneway at the lights... More

Yes a bit outdated but clean. Right on the Ocean! The outside property is very well maintained with a nice little pool. And BBQ. It feels very private because of the way the buildings are located .Beautiful sunrise over the ocean. Cant really swim here. But not far to go. Loved this little place. But if you are looking for...

Checked in late. No front desk clerk. The rent a cop (security guard) checks you in by handing you an envelope and taking a picture of your id. Talking about identity theft. Then you are told to turn in your registration in the morning. We were given a 1st floor room. The window locks were broken and no a/c. We... More

"Oceanfront" room was excellent (not really oceanfront as there were a few more rooms nearer the ocean but angled Lanai/ deck made it feel like oceanfront). Stayed at nearby Shell Vac Club Beachboy previous nights and was disappointed there for a far higher price! Shell sales people told me Mokihana used to be a timeshare but went bankrupt and then...

I missed them for 2 nites we came home to quiet country w/no sound**. Slip out and enjoy the sunrise. Kitchenette with frig, full silverware drawer & wine... More

Expedia calls the hotel Castle Mokihana. It is really Mokihana of Kauai. They also list the address as being 4-796 Kuhio Hwy. Do not look for Unit 4, 796. Look for 4796. The hotel has all units with a view of the ocean. The grounds are very nice and are very well kept. The hotel is outdated and it really... More

We arrived late at night, perhaps close to midnight. I had called the hotel earlier in the day informing them of our late arrival. The night security guard had an envelope with our room key and all check-in material. We visited the office in the morning and finished our check-in. This hotel has an excellent location, great view of the... More
