Our flight was getting into Lihue late about 11 PM and we had to pick up our car. We thought the Garden Island Inn would be a good choice but I didn't think it was the type of place to have someone at the front desk 24 hours. I called from the airport and got a recording that said if I was stranded to call an emergency number. Wayne answered and said our key was taped to the office door, told me which stairway to use and not to worry. I knew then there was an "aloha vibe" to the place. We had an ocean view but it was across the road and a parking lot. It is walking distance to a beach, a restaurant and a few shops. The staff was accomodating, they had a koi pond, small but nice landscaping and a "waterfall" to cover the road noise. It is a convenient location and a good value. After a good night's rest, we were on our way north to explore.
