Don't get me wrong when we first pulled up I thought....no way! But once I went to the office and was greeted I felt right at home. My family and I enjoyed our stay as we had multiple families in other rooms staying there initially for the place of convenience as we were attending a baseball tournament. We mostly cooked... More

We stayed in an upstairs room (#24) with kitchenette - yes, it was small, but there was plenty of light from the 3 windows. There was a table and one chair, but we were gladly given another chair upon request. Wifi worked great. Fridge was small, but large enough for our needs, and it was very handy having a coffee...

We were supposed to stay there for 3 days, just couldn't do it. We had paid extra for the upgrade so we could have a kitchen. Just a small refrigerator and microwave. Very dark, jail cell is what I would to describe this room. No Clock, no phone very very basic. Not even enough light to try to use the... More

It was extremely small and certainly could use a new mattress. We were not allowed to have clean glasses everyday. We we told to use the same one for the duration of our stay. Found that strange. One chair to sit out in the front of our unit. One per unit. It was ok, but I'd look for something else... More

The Kauai Palms Hotel bailed us out. Our flight leaving the island didn't leave until 10:30 PM, so we had a full day. We wanted a place where we could store our luggage, take a shower and rest after the sun went down before our flight. The room was the cheapest we could find near the airport. Driving up to... More

I got what I paid for and would not complain. The room and bath was clean. Cozy room, of course, all I needed was a quite room to decompress after a long day. Friendly staff. No room amenities such as coffee which is served in the lounge in the mornings. I could hear the guy on the room above snoring... More

When we first showed up we were put off by the smallness of the room. But like most people who visit Hawaii, we were not in the room that much so in the end it didn't matter and we didn't care. I don't usually drink the coffee in the room, (we are breakfast people) so I have no idea if... More

We needed one night to crash before meeting up with my family at our rental house on Anini Beach. We had room 28 which was great for one night. Bed was fine and since we had spent the entire day travelling we were pretty much dead to the world. Pros: Relatively inexpensive compared to other places (you may find a... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by spending a week on Kauai. We stayed at the Kauai Palms the entire time and enjoyed it immensely. Rooms are small but clean. The staff was friendly but honestly we didn't see much of them. We were on vacation so didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel. If... More
