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.

Aloha, Being next to the airport is one of our greatest features. It's so good to be near the airport when you have an early morning or late evening flight. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great response. Mahalo. More

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

Mahalo to Aunty Maria & the awesome staff at Kaua'i Palms. Here for another baseball tournament, perfect location, literally less than 1 minute away! Costco & Walmart is very close & convenient. My son forgot his notebook in the room & they mailed it back to us. Always treated like Ohana here! Mahalo nui!!!!

We wanted to see the island of Kauai, not sit in our hotel room all day. Therefore, all we needed was a clean home base with a bathroom and Internet. The room we got was a small queen, minifridge, and bathroom. For the price it was great. Washer/drier for our clothes (~$5 for a complete load with detergent), friendly staff,... More

We stayed here because we needed an inexpensive place close to the airport after getting in late and it was fine. The room was ready for us when we got there. It was our only night with air conditioning. The hotel is older and in an industrial area. The room was small and in the humidity it is understandable it... More

Kauai Palms Hotel is a wonderful budget choice. It is an older property maintained well by a warm and welcoming staff. My only minor complaint is the wifi only worked by the office, that said, there was a very comfortable open air but under cover work area at the hot spot. Heads up, not all rooms have AC, and when...

Aloha, Thank you for staying with us before the start of your vacation. It's always exciting to go on vacation and Kauai has so much beauty to offer. With the hiking, camping and beaches it's hard to figure out what to do first. I hope you had a great time on Kauai and went home with many memories. Thank you... More
