The room was fine for a short stay, but I wish we would have gotten a room with AC. There were windows that allowed for a nice breeze, but there were several people coming and going, lights, and of course Kauai's famous roosters. The room was clean but in need of updating. I would stay again for one night, but... More

Booked 3 nights and left after 1 night with great relief. It was the room and the location, not the staff. This place has the look and feel of a tired boarding house. The room was over-deodorised, obviously well-worn and tired. Tried not to touch things and didn't even use the shower. For the first time in our hawaii trip... More

I cannot say enough how amazing Jocelyn was to our family. She has so much grace, Aloha and pure Hawaiian Spirit. She is a remarkable person who made us feel so incredibly welcome. Thank you from our family to yours!

The staff was very helpful and friendly but this was definitely a budget hotel. The rooms have very little area for luggage. It was quiet and just around the corner from Hamura's. The bedspread was very worn and in poor condition.

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
