Kauai Inn staff is amazing. They are friendly and willing to help you with almost anything! The place is a little off the beaten track, but offers an affordable and quiet vacation spot. Located in Lihue, it is easy to get to anywhere on the island that you want to get to.

I stayed here solo the night before hiking the Napili Coast's Kalalau trail. My room was clean, the bed comfortable and the overall feeling was of a quiet 2-3 star accommodation. The rates were very good for my needs. No complaints or disappointments at all. After my hike was done I needed a room for another night and had no... More

We stayed at the Kauai Inn for 6 nights. While exploring the rest of the island we concluded the Kauaii Inn was the best location as a base to see the rest of everything. It was close to both the Kuku Grove shopping centre, which has everything you need - and Walmart as well. The Inn was in a nice... More

Well kept and comfortable budget inn. Unfortunately, my jewelry bag, including treasured items, was missing from the room on the second day. I have to assume it was hotel staff, since the room was locked (and tidy) when we returned. The office was notified and promised to check into it, but no one ever got back to me. There was... More

Although there wasn't much to do within walking distance it was very clean, comfortable and convenient fro travelling around the island. The wifi barely worked, even though it was free it was frustrating, we had to stand with our device often next to the office. However the staff are incredible, we loved all of Bud's assistance and friendliness!

This place is a great little place that's literally sitting under a beautiful mountain. Our view out our window is amazing. The room is clean and reasonably sized for our family, and we have two teenagers. Although it is outdated and no where near a 5 star place, it is clean and the view is beautiful. They do serve a...

We recently stayed at the Kauai Inn for 4 nights. Overall we were very pleased! The hotel is in a quiet area and conveniently located near many good cafes/restaurants (via car approx 5 minutes). The room was very generous in size, extremely clean and we had a great mountain view. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. There is... More
