People are always looking for "Hidden Hawaii" and trying to find out how to experience "Old Hawaii"--look no further than Hotel Lana'i. Built in 1923, this 11-room hotel is a trip back to life when we actually enjoyed living. The rooms are spacious, but not huge, and full of charm. It actually feels more like you're staying at "Auntie Nani's... More

Great little hotel, staff were beyond helpfull in every way! Resturant was a nice feed and the locals love to chat at the bar, had 2 great nights getting to know people and the island, this hotel reminds me of the pokey safari hotels u see on the movies, all open, very clean and a great central place to relax!

We stayed two nights in the very charming cottage. The staff were very helpful and friendly. A word of caution: late in the evening on a weekend, it may be difficult to get someone to help you. We were missing some linens, but this was taken care of in the morning. The restaurant was not open for dinner on either... More

Staying at this hotel was a beautiful experience. The moment we stepped in the doorway, it felt like some sort of throwback to an earlier age, as if the rest of the world had moved on but this hotel—and indeed Lana'i—was still lounging in the laidback past. It's quiet, clean, and endearingly quaint and charming. Our room was luxurious and... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the cottage and had the best time on Lanai! Accommodations were clean and quiet! We even had our own private patio! We enjoyed the free continental breakfast every morning and had a great dinner both nights! We can't wait to come back!

Our first trip to Lanai. Went to the Hotel Lanai on a recommendation. It was quaint as a historic hotel would be. We were in a standard room and it was a bit noisy as we were close to the kitchen area. Bathroom shower never really got hot - warm water only. It was very clean and the people there... More

We were here 2 years ago and had a fabulous experience with the owners then--friendly, open and accommodating. On this 3 day trip we had a different experience under the new management--the shuttles changed charging more for each trip, no snorkel gear. Our room #3 was very noisy all night long and our friends in room#4 had gauze curtains and... More

We just spent 2 nights at hotel Lanai. We had a standard room. The positives of the place: staff is friendly, it has charm, nice entry with some chairs for sitting. Negatives: room very basic, smelled musty and there was mould in bathroom. The water in the shower never got hot; we were told to run it, which we did,... More
