“Great value friendly hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2010

Stayed here only one night but would like to have stayed longer - small quiet (who cares about roosters - they add local colour!) very friendly staff, nice coffee and muffin breakfast! It's not a resort where you hide from the locals, it's a place for people who actually want to experience where they are and not stay somewhere that could be anywhere!! Great value!

The Kauai Palms Hotel is great for budget minded travelers. The rooms aren't spacious, but if you're just looking for a place to crash, it's perfect. The room was affordable, clean, had a nice sized bed and a fridge as well. A big perk for me, though, was the fact that the hotel has a computer and a printer in the lobby.

We were very impressed with this hotel. I needed a place for my husband and daughter to stay for one night after a long flight. Our rservations for the resort werent until the next day. The receptionist was extremely helpful when I called to make the reservation, it was close to the airport, close to town and to our resort.Great value.I recommend it !

After the long trip from the east coast it is really great to drive a few minutes to this little oasis. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is so convenient. There is good coffee and pastries in the morning and the price is just right.

The small hotel is owned by a family. Their advertisements are honest. They do not jack up the price once you get there as other motel's, and hotel's, do at times. The rooms are small though. But for me, that was fine! Televisions work fine there. But you may not get a room wth air conditioning, or a phone. If you make a reservation, then you need to make a request for a room with air conditioning at least. That's because there are roosters that crow all night long just outside the hotel. There are hundreds of wild roosters and chickens in the town that do not belong to anyone. (Hurricane Iniki, in 92, blew away a poultry farm there and all the roosters and chickens escaped and were never rounded up. I could not sleep much at all at night because of the roosters crowing all night.
But other than that, this hotel is cool! In walking distant to town. A block from the bus stop! Very safe place to be! Very friendly people that own the hotel. You do not need a credit card to stay there, just a small deposit.

We stayed at the Kauai Palms Hotel for two nights and we had a small room, but perfect for our needs. Centrally located within Lihue and claose to the airport. Dining and shopping options were not far away. Great coffee (Kauai Coffee) in the morning with muffins. If you're looking at a resort-type place, then this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking to stay at a nice comfortable place with VERY Friendly and helpful staff and nice atmosphere, then the place to stay is Kauai Palms. The price is great and not far from the beaches and beauty that is Kauai. Will definitely stay there again!
