I was going to arrive after the front desk hours & had asked for help on how to check in after hours right at the time of my booking. Got no response & was told that they would contact me on the day of arrival. Guess what? I got no reply until I was about to board my flight so I called them only to be told "Its just 730AM on Hawaii & we are just opening our front desk". They need to understand that guests are traveling from east coast & may not have connectivity once they board the long flight. Whats the harm in sending instructions just the previous day? Anyhow, I let that pass. Next, I checkinto the hotel - easy to find even at night & parking directions were great. But then I was on first floor right in front of the parking & guests were speaking loudly at 2AM local time. The windows are not sound proof & even if someone walks on the outside corridor you can hear while having ear plugs. If you are looking for budget accommodation, go to the Kauai Inn instead of Kauai Palms!

In many ways this was a good budget place to stay on our “staycation”. The room was small, threadbare but cleaned and the staff were friendly. the outside of the buildings were old but clean. It seemed the hotel was mainly rented long term by locals who were also super nice. My main objection was the horrible smell of urine from the bathroom. I know what mildew smells like in older Hawaii buildings and that was present too but not terribly so. This smell was something else entirely like an improper toilet seal.

Hotel is nice and clean. Can hear neighbors sometimes but usually not an issue. Upstairs balcony is relaxing as you can hear the palm trees rustling in the wind. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

The staff was so pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean. We missed our flight and had to spend an extra night near the Lihue airport. Super close. Don't let the outside fool you. It was safe, clean, and quiet. Just what we needed without spending a ton of money. Please give them a try. We did,and the $$$$ we saved we went out for a great dinner that night and breakfast the next day.
