My girlfriend and I loved this hotel! Beds were comfy, staff was friendly, and the restaurant was amazing! Best truffle fries ever! We only stayed one night but would definitely recommend and stay again.

If you are looking for the glitz or luxury of the Four Seasons, this is not the place for you. But if you prefer a more low key, comfortable,quaint historical place for way less money, this is the place for you. It's up in the pines of Lanai City and was very comfortable, a short walk into town, and it... More

Great food, nice live music, friendly attentive service, wonderful atmosphere...what more could one want? We really enjoyed our dinner. The prices are a little high but it is an upscale place. I had the grilled vegetables and they were very tasty.

Such a quaint and historical place. Staff is attentive; rooms are clean and comfortable. We stayed in two front lanai rooms. It was wonderful to have an outside area. Restaraunts has great food. Friday nights there is a band until 11ish. Yes, you can hear it everywhere in the hotel but it is part of the ambiance. I highly recommend... More

There aren't a lot of options for places to stay on Lanai, but the Hotel Lanai is fantastic. We called in advance and were able to book the cottage. This had a private entrance with a large patio sorrow dead by a large hedge. There is a very comfy lounge for two and a picnic table. The room is fantastic.... More

The hotel is wonderful if you like beautiful, authentic atmosphere. The hotel is beautiful, quiet, and real. The center is the dining room, which serves great food. The rooms are in two wings off each side of the center of the building. They are nicely appointed. The hotel is in Lanai City, up away from the beaches. A shuttle circulates... More

The hotel is charming and my father remembers it from years ago and wanted to stay here. We were in the less expensive wing we found out. It was very noisy at night until 10pm. My room especially since I shared a wall with the woman's bathroom, so you could hear everything. So, if you want to get to sleep... More

Arrived on a Tuesday evening and hotel seemed like a nice, quiet place. But the restaurant was closed that night. Wednesday was karaoke night and it was quite loud and disturbing. I complained and was told it would be quieter on Thursday night because there was no special event. Also, told I was fortunate to be leaving Friday because there... More

We just returned from ten days in Hawaii, and the two nights we spent on Lanai were the highlight of the trip. What a quiet, peaceful place, compared to islands like Maui or Oahu. We opted to stay at the historic Hotel Lanai (vs the VERY expensive Four Seasons) and loved every minute of our stay. We rented the cottage,... More

Loved our stay at the Hotel Lanai. It has lots of historic charm--built in the 30's, with wide board and batten walls, plank floors, high ceilings, big windows to catch the breeze and Hawaiian quilts on the beds. It's small and quiet, with an excellent restaurant. It's definitely worth getting a room with a lanai--wonderful place to sit and sip... More
