Mokihana was perfect for our budget! We got a clean and comfortable room, which is all we really needed -- we spent most of our time outside anyways. The most notable thing about the room was that there was no TV, which is not common these days, but I didn't mind because I don't watch much TV. I prefer relaxing... More

Perfect location right on the beach with cafes and shops across the road. Stayed in two different rooms and both were very comfortable and had all we needed for a 2 night stay each time. Sure there is no TV and sporadic wifi but you get to appreciate the sound and view of the ocean at your doorstep. Right on... More

We were expecting the worst when we got there, but I must say this place wasn't all that bad! We were on the ground floor which was great for loading and unloading our car and also easy access to the beach and bbq area. Yes there are roosters and chickens, but there are roosters and chickens everywhere in Kaua'i so... More

I selected Mokihana as part of my package with flight. It is like a motel in that the doors are accessible like a motel. All the rooms face the beach/ocean somehow. I was on 105. I arrived at 1pm and the person at the desk said that my room wasn't ready and that check-in was at 3pm. So I just... More

Yes, I highly recommend the Castle Mokihana, 4-796 Kuhio Highway, Kapaa, HI 96746. Phone: 18088223971. It's so close to the beach that you hear the waves lapping at the shore all night and to someone from Arizona, that's next to heaven. On 30APR the room cost a total of $80.47 including tax. The front desk closes at 9 p.m. but... More

Castle Mokihana was perfect for what I needed. Only had two nights in Kauai and this hotel was perfect. Oceanfront with gorgeous views of the sunrise each morning. Easy access to the beach as well as shopping. Nearby grocery and even Starbucks just a short walk. Located a short drive from the Lihue Airport and centrally located on the island... More

Nice place a little worn around the edges but very comfortable! Right on the beach and nice pool! I would stay there again! It's close to stores and shops and its pretty close to the main spot in Kapaa.

This hotel is NOT for everybody. The buildings are old and rooms are out of date and rough. There are no TVs in the rooms and the free WiFi is very slow. If watching TV and working on your computer are what you need, maybe another hotel would be better. This hotel is right on the beach and just what... More
