Last minute we decided to stay in Waimea so we searched Tripadvisor and reserved the Kamuela Inn. Not knowing what to expect we were so pleasantly surprised by our darling newly renovated room. It was so nice and the bed and sheets were so comfortable. I love it and would recommend to anyone staying in Waimea. Have been sharing our... More

Relaxed! I'd spent the week circumnavigating the Island, ending in Kona. Bad experiences in booking a room there, then a crap room along with the tourist trap atmosphere had my anxiety at a high. Even though Waimea was out of the way and I was not guaranteed a refund for my unused night at the crappy Kona place, I booked... More

Aloha Kendall N! I distinctly remember your stay with us and am thankful that you stopped by my desk to share your comments in person. Loren is one of our valued team members serving that very example of "Aloha" that you speak about. In Hawaii, it is our culture to treat our guests like family, so welcome to our ohana.... More

We came to Kamuela to see the historic July 4th Rodeo and Horse Races at Parker Ranch (a lot of fun!). Our room was newly renovated on the 2nd floor. I loved the country touches of horse shoe towel bars, mason jar chandeliers and barn door bathroom door. The cool mountain breezes wafting through our open windows were heavenly. We... More

Aloha Cabbage808! Thank you for such a gracious review. It's been our goal with renovations to bring back some of the old paniolo atmosphere with modern amenities. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed much of what our cowboy country town has to offer. Make plans to visit again in early February as the pink cherry blossoms... More

We stayed at the Kamuela Inn for the Cherry Blossom Festival. They were in the process of renovating rooms so I got to see the old (oh dear) and the fabulous new. Very reasonable rates. Staff was very accommodating for our 9:30 PM arrival. Breakfast was simple, but very adequate. Even had sprigs of cherry blossoms to decorate the tables.... More

I loved staying in Waimea! It was cooler than either coast, and lovely to come home to after a day on Hilo side or Kona side. Maunea Kea looms in the sky. No-frills kind of place, but a nice spread in the AM (bagels, mango butter, yogurt, fresh fruit, oatmeal, hard-boiled eggs). Really nice staff. I was in Penthouse 2,... More

If you find yourself on Hawaii's Big Island and venture north you will be surprised to find green rolling hills, ranches, and live stock. It is Hawaii's "cowboy country". A fascinating part of the island's rich history. While on a cycling tour around the island, with Adventure Cycling Association, our group of a dozen or so stayed at a newly... More

I stayed in "Penthouse 1" of the Kamuela Inn, and was thoroughly pleased with the choice. The room itself was plenty large, and the big window along the front gave a 180 view to the south of the surrounding town of Waimea/Kamuela. A big, private lanai was positioned facing west. This Lanai was a place I returned to repeatedly during... More

My wife and I stayed here one night because I was having same day surgery at the local hospital, a mile away, and could not drive back to Kona that day. Be aware that this is a 1950's era motel-type accomodation, not a resort. Our ground floor room was small but clean; the walls were concrete block, which made it... More

I stayed here after camping at Mauna Kea. I wanted to stay somewhere quiet, clean and unpretentious where I would not run into entitled tourists. My room was small, quiet and not renovated. There was no air conditioning. I didn't mind because the value was excellent. I got a quiet room that was very clean. The staff is friendly and... More

We stumbled onto this hotel on-line and were very pleasantly surprised with the hotel, suites, and staff. The rooms had been remodeled and were ideal for our family with a nice kitchen, seating area, bedroom, large bath...it was perfect and we will stay there again. We could even walk to Merriman's, probably the best restaurant in Wiamea. The also served... More
