We wanted to stay near the airport to meet up with friends coming in the next morning and chose this hotel for its low cost and location (close - but not too close to the airport). Even though the cost was low the value was high with very comfortable rooms, lots of in room amenities, and a tremendous amount of... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. It was very clean and the bed was comfy. Maria and the ladies at the desk were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much to ask for them. very close to the airport and the local bus. It's definitely a great value for money option. The free and fast Wifi was... More

Not sure what to expect but was certainly pleasantly surprised. Hotel is close to the airport as well as near to Rice Street - where we discovered Kauai Beer Company. The room was quaintly decorated, compact and immaculate. It had a bed, two chairs, TV, wardrobe, refrigerator. There is a ceiling fan as well as air-conditioning unit. The bathroom was... More

If you are on a budget, this is a good place to stay. It is also very close to the airport. The room we had was small, but we were hardly ever in it because we were there for a wedding. The rest of the family was in Poipu. We arrived very late (after 11:00) and the manager was so... More

Tropical storm/hurricane Ana forced us to change our travel plans and we arrived in Kauai a day earlier than expected and we were unable to gain access to our condo. So we needed a place to spend the night that was close to the airport and was inexpensive. The Kauai Palms met both those criteria. The room reminded me of... More

Here in Hawaii we occasionally have a hurricane heading our way. So I move off my sailboat and into Kauai Palms. The management is so nice, especially Maria, but really all of them are like family. Because I am a local boy, I get kama'aina, but I stayed here 3 nights a week for 3 years, coming over from the... More

Small room, but clean quite place to stay. Very convenient to the Lihue airport - about a 5 minute drive. Parking can get tight at night. There is parking behind and in front of the hotel. Check-in was fast and easy. Reservations made through Expedia made it easier at check-on. You can walk out to the main street (Rice Street)... More

We stayed here for the first night after the arrival on Kauai. The hotel is close to the airport and can be found easily with a map or GPS. It is located in a residential area and parking was right next to the hotel entrance (and our room, see below). The check-in lady was very friendly and informative and the... More

My husband and I arrived in Lihue after flying in from South Korea. We wanted a place near the airport where we could just sleep for most of our first day/night in the area due to our long flight and the huge time difference. This place was perfect. We had mentioned our flight when we had made the reservations, and... More

We stayed here the night before our flight out the next morning and I was shocked at the condition of the room. The room was very cheap at $79.00 a night, but just because a room is cheap doesn't mean that it should be grimy and dirty. The walls in the bathroom had grim dripping down them, the molding was...

KauaiPalmsHotel, General Manager at Kauai Palms Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review and posting your concerns. We offer a reasonably priced room that we do keep clean and make sure our guests are comfortable. While we are not a 5 star hotel we are a good hotel with friendly staff, well maintained rooms and a great location near the airport. I do hope you enjoyed the island.... More
