A very clean room with 1 queen bed and a small fridge, however a bit on the small side. Needed a room for one night and found this to be perfect. Checked in late and staff was very accommodating with check in. I would stay again!

This hotel is conveniently located close to the airport, to the Fox rent-a-car pickup, and was in walking distance to Hamura's Saimin, (about 200 yards behind the hotel), which is famous for its ramen soup (they make their own noodles). This was a real plus after arriving to hotel around 5:30 p.m. to be able to freshen up and get... More

Stayed here the night we arrived, rented three rooms for 11, including five children (which was expressed at booking). We left -30 Celsius weather, needless to say that the children were ecstatic in the morning, and though trying to be quiet, were a bit noisy. The lady at the desk, a) had not made coffee for 6 am, and informed... More

Aloha, My name is Maria and I am the General Manager of the hotel. I am sorry to hear that you were met with rudeness by someone we have yet to identify, certainly it was not me or any of our staff members as I arrive to work and open the office promptly at 7am and immediately begin making coffee...

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
