Mokihana was a little difficult to find at first as we drove past the entrance 3 times before finding it. On arrival they had no record of our booking but managed to fit us in as Walk Ins & luckily had a spare crib for our daughter. The lodgings are very basic (there's no TV, air conditioning & just a...

As stated, you get what you pay for...which is literally nothing. No AC. Run down, bad. If they are out of box fans, you'll need to run up to Walmart and get one. You'd think there'd be a nice breeze from the ocean, but there isn't one and the room gets muggy and hot. Good luck getting a good night's... More

As a once-upon-a-time local resident, and also an airline employee, I know what else is out there. Kauai (well, Hawaii in general) is expensive and this hotel is a great option for those of us on a budget.

The Castle Mokihana is an older facility that is definitely showing its age. The room had neither air conditioning nor a television (there was a small radio). There was an overhead fan and reasonable air flow through the unit, but this was not sufficient given the heat and humidity of early September. The bathroom looked to have been updated with... More

BACKSTORY: Hubby (age 67) and myself (62) spent three nights here in August. We are frugal travelers and low-maintenance type of folks. We really enjoyed our stay! This is an older property which lends itself to a certain charm. A few observations: +Great property; ocean front -No beach on the property +Easy access to a hiking path to a beach... More

First room - toilet was leaking constantly, smallish room. Since I was staying for a week, I asked for a different room. New room was on same floor - next door. Top floor - 3rd. A bit larger which was great. Toilet of new room still leaked - hear the tank go off about every 10 mins. This can be... More

A beautiful location, grounds are kept up so very nice. The staff was very friendly. Rooms are adequate for the price. However, we were on the first floor and screen door would not lock. So we had to keep the sliding glass door closed and locked all night. With no breeze the room was unbearable to sleep in, a fan... More

The hotel is in a good position near shops and has a good location. Apartments have ocean view from lanai windows, but the whole structure and fornitures need deep refurbishment. The garden and pool instead were very well maintained. It's a real pity.

We stayed here after booking through Expedia. Expedia gave this hotel 3 stars...THAT IS AN OVERSTATEMENT! Almost every review that said the rooms were outdated, were answered by the Mokihana manager stating that renovations would take place throughout the property in EARLY 2016. I am guessing that in 2015, the response was the same only "early in 2015". We arrived... More

During our three weeks on the island we spent time in three hotels in Kapaa and if/when we return it will most likely be to the castle. Everyone mentioned the faded charm and what to / not to expect. It just hands down had the best pool that you can actually swim in, great design as well! And as so... More
