Good for a budget motel, bed was comfortable, room clean and simple. Had one of the rooms without the air conditioning, but it did have a ceiling fan and it worked well to keep the temperature comfortable. Coffee and tea in the morning. Very friendly staff. Only issue was that to keep the room cool had to leave the windows... More

First I have to say the the staff here were super friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Top notch staff! However the actual property was lacking. Looked at website to see what our room with two beds would be like. Not the least bit similar. Pictures show sink, microwave, small fridge, table and chairs. We did... More

First let me say I'm giving the Kauai Palms a high rating not because it is a 5-star resort, it isn't, but because it does a great job at being exactly what it claims to be; an affordable, centrally located, hotel with hotel with large helping of Aloha. This was my second stay, my first being a few years ago.... More

But the coffee was good. Biggest issues was that it was noisy -roosters cracking by 5, noisy air conditioner and noisy... More

My wife and I stayed a handful of nights at the Kauai Palms. I had researched the hotel and read several reviews. The hotel was the closest thing to our budget so I decided we would give it a shot. It is not a five store Beach resort but it is a nice older hotel. The staff was all very... More
