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 The buildings are old and rooms are out of date and rough.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

I visited Kauai with my friend and we stayed here for 2 nights. Staffs were very helpful and friendly. I don't remember their name but thanks to old lady and new guy when I checked in - about 9 or 10 PM. The building itself seemd pretty old yet, Room was very clean and well maintained.

My wife and I decided to stay at Castle Mokihana with the understanding that it was a 2.5 star hotel... and had expectations to match. We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the hotel- but disappointed by both the listed and expected amenities. The place touts "free WiFi"... and while technically they do have free wifi, it's effectively useless.... More

As all the other reviews say, "This is a budget hotel." I was on Kauai for business and needed a room for a night. I arrived at 8:55PM and the front desk clerk was just about to close up for the night. My keys and hotel information were already in an envelope so check-in was easy. Found the room and... More

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

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Yes a bit outdated but clean.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...
