This was a lovely quaint hotel that was nice to retire to after a long day of exploring and adventure seeking. The bed was incredibly comfortable. While the room may be very small it was perfect for just my daughter and I. Very clean, hot shower, great price and most of all quiet with only the wind rustling through the... More

We booked this place for the price and the convenience of being close to the airport for our last night in Kauai (after having spent a week in the Hanalei area). It was under $100/night whereas other places in Lihue were $150-200 (or more). For that price, we got a small but functional room with AC and ceiling fan, ensuite... More

This is a basic, older motel, close to the airport, and everything is kept very clean. The shower has been updated and the slightly higher barrier/ threshold is a nice touch to keep the rest of the bathroom dry and clean. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. She came across as genuinely proud of her hometown and... More

For those who haven't been to Kauai you'll discover that prices are substantially higher and in many areas and your choices here tend to be in this hotels price range around 100 and then there's a big jump to over 200 so there isn't what I would call a lot of hotels that are in the mid range so super...

This hotel looks like an old motel that was converted and it may have been. It is not elaborate like some of the resorts but the rooms are kept immaculately clean, air conditioning is provided, the landscaping is beautiful and they immediately jump to meet any need. Across the street is the mountain range that was used in every opening... More

Friendly reception, pride themselves on cleanliness. Organised a Taxi for the morning. Comfy bed, reasonably quiet, hot shower. If you are looking for a place to stay for an early morning flight, for the price you can't go wrong

This place is in a Great Location. Nothing Fancy, Nice, Clean, Friendly Staff. Close to Great Local Restaurants, within walking distance to many. Very close to the airport. I think about Two miles. You can't go wrong staying here. Your only decision is to A/C or not to A/C.

If you are looking for a budget option in Lihue, I recommend Kauai Palms Hotel. The rooms were clean and basic, the setting is industrial, but with a great view of the mountain from the back of the hotel. There is great food and a great beer garden just a couple blocks away. The staff is warm and generous and... More

My wife and I stayed for one night. Arrived by bicycle. The room was small but very clean and nicely appointed. Everything in the room was of high quality and in good repair. The shower was tiled and worked well. There was a pedestal sink with a nice faucet. The grounds were nicely landscaped. It was a much nicer room... More
