“nice hotel”
Reviewed April 19, 2006

the hotel had big rooms in the 4th building, and in 3rd it looked smaller rooms. to turn fridge on you needed to switch a light switch sorta behind the fridge. microwave in room, tv and cable. also they said they had wireless internet. the hotel was nice and quiet.
mornings have complimentary breakfast with coffee, toast, and pasteries.

My family flew in to Lihue late on Christmas day. I had made reservations directly with the Kauai Inn for 2 rooms for one night about a month before our arrival. When we showed up at the motel around 8 pm, the office was closed. Fortunately the owners left contact numbers on the office door and a free phone to use. After phoning the owners they arrived about 30 minutes later. After showing them my printout of their e-mail confirming my reservations, they apologized and charged us for only one room. The room I was in had air conditioning (not all rooms have air conditioning, so ask for this if it's important to you), was large, clean, and tastefully appointed with a king bed. The bathroom had a large and deep jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. Plenty of hot water. The motel is located in a residential area of Lihue near the harbor, so our evening there was quiet and we slept soundly. In the morning we enjoyed a complimentary continental breakfast next to the pool. I would stay there again, but I would definitely re-confirm my reservations by phone early in the day of my arrival.

Our trips to Kauai are always inspirational, fun, relaxing and spiritual. We stayed at the Kauai Inn the last time.
This met our needs as we are there to visit friends, relax and be inspired. The staff at the Kaui Inn were exceptional, friendly and helpful. The rooms have a refrigerator and microwave. Laundry facilities are available. It is not important for us to be on the beach and/or have a plush room. The Kauai Inn is quiet as it is on the back side of the Nawiliwili Harbor, away from the traffic and noise.
And the price is right.
