Very new place, comfortable, spacious, kitchen, sliding door to shared deck, very clean. Oscar at the desk was very polite at check in. The pier is a short walk away, the grocery store is a short walk away, and the Grand Canyon of the Pacific is a short drive away! Would stay here again!

Hard to rate this lodging as excellent, even very good. If one does, how do you rate a Four Seasons, a Grand Hyatt, etc.? This is a small roadside motel. Clean is good, but that's all that this place offers. No beach. No breakfast. Self check-in. And very pricey.

Comfortable, clean rooms, small but more than adequate for two people. Well-kept grounds, friendly manager (Oscar), within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Quiet neighborhood. Seems a bit overpriced for just a hotel room with kitchenette. My only real complaint is the barely luke-warm water in the shower this morning.

We apolygize for the issue with the water not being warm enough in the morning. We recently installed a solar water heating system on the roof and with this month long rain we have been having, the sun has not been able to do it's job. Normally there is not a problem as it is usually sunny every day out... More

The West Inn was our saving grace. Coming on a weekend in which the entire island was overbooked, we came across this hotel. They went out of their way to accommodate us with the perfect vacation haven. Extremely clean and homey, the garden inn made our Kauai experience stress free and fulfilling, with a beautiful room to come home to.... More

Spent a month living in a 1 Bedroom Suite at The West Inn. This place was exactly what I was looking for. The room was clean and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay.

The West Inn is clean, convenient to SW Kaua'i and the Wiamea Canyon/Koke'e Park area. Wiamea as a town is small and not tourist based, it's a working community of Kaua'i. Oscar (manager) is very helpful. the room is standard size, good condition and second floor rooms only. all in all, if you're going hiking in the SW & Western... More

Oskar at the front desk is great. He was super helpful and friendly - gave tips on hikes, helped carry bags to our room, always asking how we were doing and if there was anything we needed. Great asset to the property. The hotel itself is pretty great, too. Understand, this isn't a fancy resort. But, if you need a... More

This was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay for hiking in Waimea and Kokee. It was an easy drive from here to Waimea canyon, so close. The room seemed new and was very clean.

Thank you so much for posting your review. We are very happy to hear that you were pleased with the accommodations.
