I stayed here while looking for a place to rent and after beginning a new job on the Island. It more than met my needs. I had a quiet room on the second floor with a comfortable bed, kitchenette, and cold AC. Plenty of parking, fresh brewed local coffee every morning, and a staff with loads of local information. I was very comfortable staying here. The beach at Nawiliwili is closest, and this spot is central to Lihue shopping (Anchor, Green, and Kukui Grove) - and there is plenty to eat in walking distance: Ha Coffee, Loves Bakery, the Donut Shop, Grinds, Kalena, Kauai Brewery, Hamura Samir, Rob’s Good Times, the Vietnamese place next to Good Times, and more. There is also a bowling alley good for rainy times. No pool- this is not a resort- this is a motel- but definitely an excellent one.

Booked this for our last night in Kauai! We stayed in south shore for 10 days. This place was exactly what most say.. clean, friendly and convenient ! The nice young man at the desk the night we checked in was Awsome to deal with! We had the deluxe room which had everything we needed and more. They even had a hot plate to cook in and all the dishes were supplied! Friendly service from beginning to end with free coffee in the morning and a kettle. Don’t expect the Hilton As I see some on here do! The Kauai palms hotel is a older quaint hotel that has wear and tear but hey if they start to make it a 5 star your going to pay more so take your pick people. The beds were comfy. Wifi works best in lobby but totally doable for us in room! They even allow you to leave luggage for the day if you have a later flight and lend you towels and beach stuff if you need! I loved this little gem of a place. Thankyou Kauai palms hotel we will defiantly see you again! “Lola”

We stayed for 10 nights as a family and were very happy there. The central location is a big plus as well as the freshly brewed Kauai Coffee in the morning. The hotel is not new or luxurious but instead charming with its old fashioned style. And it is probably the most reasonable option on Kauai.

Clean. Hospitable. Affordable. It felt kinda like a hostel. I think it's a pretty straightforward place. Best prices are for direct booking. We caught a taxi here from the airport and walked back to the airport to pick up our rental car the next day. That was silly since the rental car was almost as cheap as the taxi ride. But anyway it was doable. It's not on a bus route from the airport if you're trying to get there via bus it's kinda not helpful. Somewhere people were complaining about roosters there. They are idiots. There's roosters all over the island.

We had an 11 p.m. flight out of Lihue. We had to check out of where we were staying at 10 a.m. the day of our departure. This seemed like it would be an ok place to catch a nap, shower, get a bite to eat then catch our flight. We arrived about 2:15 in the afternoon and asked if we could check in early. I explained what our plans were. It appeared there were no other guests there. The desk clerk told me no, they were have work done to some of the units. I was told to come back at 3. We came back, checked in to a room right next to the front desk. I had reserved a deluxe room. Not sure if we received a deluxe since I had asked to be in the ground floor but oh well. Room very small, very clean and besides we were only going to be there until approximately 9:30p. We had just fallen asleep to take a nap when there was a lot of noise from the adjoining unit. Apparently this was one of the units having work done to it. When the noise did subside, I got up to see what was going on. Guess they decided it was a good time to clean the room. I asked the maid if she could stop and thankfully she did. By now though we were awake so we scrapped the plan of napping. Got a bite to eat and left. Not worth the $120 for sure. It’s definitely not nearly as nice as their pics. For those choosing a place to spend the day before a late flight, I’d check elsewhere.
