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...

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

While this is not the worst hotel I have ever been in it is certainly not the best. It is very noisy if you get a room with no air conditioner. Expect to here your neighbors, the people walking by outside and the "drag racing" down the street. The "cable" tv barely came through and when we found a station... More

We had a flight arriving in Lihue at about 9PM and wanted a reasonably priced hotel near the airport for just one night. This hotel had generally good reviews so I booked it through Hotwire (yes, you can often figure out the hotel by the description). What a disappointment. First, know that Kauai has few street lights and it is... More

I am sorry to hear your stay with us was not a positive experience. I agree that the street lighting in Lihue town is dim and can be improved. I have taken your suggestion of better lighting the area and I will be improving the hotel's property by lighting the entrance and walkways for better guidance and ease for our... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Palms! Stayed for 2 nights, as the price was right. Comfy bed, clean room, mini fridge, I am all about it. The wifi was a bit dodgy in the unit we were in... but their staff were helpful and got us all connected, no problem. Not near the beach, but close to other amenities... More

We stay at the Kauai Palms when we arrive late on Kauai and don't want to make the drive up to Princeville late at night. We also stay here if we have an early morning flight out of Lihue. The rooms are not huge and elegant but they are very clean and the staff is excellent.

The downfall of this property are the paper thin walls. I could hear my next door neighbor as if we were in the same room including coughing, tv shows, conversations etc. For this reason alone, I wouldn't stay again which is unfortunate as this is an otherwise great value hotel.

I stayed here for just one day as it was cheap and close to the airport where I needed to be before my flight. I was pleasantly surprised at how decent it was for the price. Check in was easy. Staff were very nice. Although my room was a bit dated looking, everything was clean and in good condition. The... More
