We stayed in a king room with patio. The bed was huge and very comfortable. They offer free coffee, hot water, lemonade and orange juice during the day and every morning we've been served a complimentary breakfast. The staff was very friendly. the only issue we can complain is that we couldn't get a wi-fi signal in our room (305),... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before our condo was ready in Princecville. This hotel is a perfect home base for your adventures on the south east side of the island. The light breakfast is served outside. At first I was a little concerned with this but a cup of coffee outside was the perfect way to start the morning.... More

We only stayed one night after a late flight into Lihue. Very clean rooms, comfy bed, bathroom appeared to be recently renovated and was nicely tiled. Continental breakfast was just right and included many different island fruits. Great views of the surrounding mountains and a nice pool.

Comfortable rooms with 2 queen beds enough for 4 people. Reasonable rates. Nice continental breakfast. Pool is nothing to write home about. Grounds are nice and the staff is extremely helpful. The location is near the airport. Good for a stopover between your hotel/condo reservations.

After getting the beating up over the phone & at the front desk of a few lodgings, I went back to the 1st one I visited and with the usual unwanted haggling at check-in was able to stay in a very comfortable & clean room. Quiet, aging facilities with very helpful staff. Will likely stay again.

Located in a more industrialized area 3 minutes outside of Lihue. Very close to the airport with easy access to the one major road on Kauai. Property is well maintained, greenery with mountain back drop. Two story motel style building, very clean room, with microwave and fridge. Old noisy air conditioner but it works. Staff are friendly and happy to... More

If you're looking for authentic Hawaii, charm, laid back, and friendly this is the place. Convenient location that is a short drive to the main shopping areas of Lihue and close to the airport. The room was large and clean, everything was in order and this was the first accommodation of my 5 trips to Kauai this year where the... More

I originally wanted to stay on the south shore near Poipu, but the hotel rates were incredibly high in that area. I found Kauai Inn online and booked it mainly for the low rates, but it actually turned out to be quite nice! Lihue is a great place to stay and a short drive to just about everything. The rooms...
