Great location. Very clean. Wonderful staff. The restaurant was closed while we were here, however, they did offer us a nice continental breakfast. There are some restaurants a few blocks away and a state of the art movie theater. We stayed in room 11 which was very nice and very private. Ask the front desk about borrowing snorkel equipment and... More

A little slice of old Hawaii. Nothing special but our lanai room was clean and comfortable. Short walk to the town square with shops, stores and local eateries. The heritage museum next door provides a good history of the island and gave us a map of the koloiki hiking trail .Apparently back in the day this was a planned community... More

A perfect place to wind down after being on the Big Island and Maui for 2 weeks. We stayed in the cottage. It was a very homey with beautiful Lanai Island prints on the wall. The sitting room had a nice couch and chair plus a flat screen TV. The bedroom has a full size bed. The room came with... More

We are world travelers that frequent hotels that are billed to be similar quality. This Hotel has the worst front desk ever. The hotel was very concerned with our arrival and departure times because the only time someone is at the desk is for a check in or out. They decline to help find transportation while visiting, which is crucial... More

First, there is nothing to do in lanai. Absolutely nothing. Thankfully, we were able to rent an atv, otherwise we would have left. I have never paid this much money to have such poor service. Regardless of what we asked for help with (can you help us make ferry reservations? Can you tell us where to get fishing poles? Can... More

We stayed in the cottage. It was pretty old and dirty... bugs, dust, dirt, mold... The restaurant connected to the "hotel" was very good for dinner. Next time we will stay at the Four Seasons as we loved Lanai! It is very charming and serene.

Enjoyed our stay very much at the only NON-Super Resort on the island at this time... Our mattress was kinda soft, but we slept well anyways from all the activities we did during the day... The included breakfast is quite good, and we hope to come back and stay in again!

Staying at Hotel Lanai reminded us a little of being in northern Michigan, just a little. It's situated in the uplands of the island amongst the pine trees. Not your typical Hawaiian beach resort, but we loved it. We choose to stay at what they call the cottage room. It is a very lovely little cottage, with a very nice... More

My husband and I stayed in the cottage at Hotel Lanai recently and would like to give an honest review of a hotel we very much enjoyed, but was different than what we'd expected having read reviews and done research online. A few of our observations to assist with your travel plans: PROS - this hotel is ADORABLE and has... More

Our charming and soothing room - the perfect place to end a peaceful day on the island of lanai ! Staff made us feel at home throughout our too short stay. Loved waking up to the quiet sounds of this a Hawaiian oasis with coffee on 'our porch' ! The Resturant was a surprise pleasure. This island is subtle in... More
