No beach, No pool, No frills. Small room. Small price. Clean and friendly. This small hotel is located near the city center. 5 minutes from the airport. Try the fresh Kaua'i coffee brewed every morning. This is where the locals stay.

Good base hotel not far from the airport. You can even walk (some 30 min) from the terminal. Free coffee in the morning, basic clean rooms, could get noisy in the morning. Its ok place for a short stay, for longer stays if you have car consider some of the private accommodation on the island (I user afterwards a different place for 2/3 of this hotel price and 3xnicer). Would stay again if needed.

The rooms were clean and the area was quiet. Try to go on priceline to get the lowest price you can because it is worth about that. There is a great asian resturant two blocks away that is real reasonable. I was there for two nights until my condo was ready and I was traveling solo so it was OK. Heck you are in Hawaii and why would you want to hand in the room !

Room Tip: Pay a little more and go up the the Aston Ocean up the road.

My SO and I stayed there for one night after a late flight arrival into Lihue, because it was close to the airport. This place is more of a motel than a hotel. The area around the hotel did not look safe especially arriving after 10:p.m. at night. However it turned out to be OK under the daylight the next day.

Fortunately we only had to stay there one night. We could not imagine spending a week in this motel. The room was small. No telephone, clock radio, clothes drawers, extremely small closet for hanging clothes, extra small bath/toilet. We left about 7:30 the next morning and so only spent about 8 hours there - mainly to rest our heads from a long flight.

On the plus side, the room was clean, did not have any unpleasant smell, staff was friendly, bed was comfortable, and most of all - the price was right. These pluses mean that I would probably stay there again only because of the price and for no more than one night just to rest my head after a long flight, if my chosen accomodations are for example on the north shore which is at least 45 minutes driving time from the airport. After flying for over 10 hours from the east coast, such a drive is not one you want to do.

For 8 nights, we enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Millie, Mokihana, and staff at the Kauai Palms Hotel. Our room 23 had a king size bed, small kitchen with sink, ref., microwave, dishes, pots, pans, and silverware. it had a ceiling fan and a window AC. Originally, the hotel had rented our reserved room 25 but were quick to offer room 23, which was a great alternative, also on the 2nd floor. The next day, we had a beautiful tropical flower arrangement in our room. The hotel has beach mats, snorkel gear, sunscreen, beach chairs, small surf boards, etc. for loan. Upon returning from our day's activities, most always either Mokihana, Millie, or another staff member would ask how we enjoyed the day - true Aloha is practiced at the Kauai Palms Hotel. The laundry facilities and wifi worked flawlessly. While we enjoyed the cool breezes and the rustling palm trees at night, sometimes we had to use the AC because of the roosters (3am wake up call), the late planes taking off at the airport 2 miles away, or the trucks backing up (beep, beep). It all added to the atmosphere and we had the option of fresh air or AC.

Room Tip: Room 23 is a good room because it is somewhat isolated, freshly painted, clean, and has all the amenities one would desire for a reasonably priced and comfortable hotel.
