My husband and I stayed here for a night on our honeymoon before settling on the southern part of Kauai. We knew we would be getting a budget hotel, but we at least thought we would feel safe. There were groups of people smoking in the parking lot when we checked in, a security officer who looked pretty easy to...

No turn down service, twin beds, no AC. But who needs that when you are on the windward side with cool ocean breezes. We stayed here 4 nights of our trip and enjoyed our room very much. The only problem we had was the maid took our change we had saved to do laundry. I would stay here again though.

The view from my room on the second floor was of the ocean and it was great to wake up to the sound of the sea. Room was a good size. Twin beds...which made no sense for me as a single visitor, however, it was comfortable. There's no breakfast served - only food is from a steak/fish restaurant adjoining which...

Though the accomodation is maintained quite well it does not look really attractive due to it's age. Many mosquito's. Internet is not realible. But ... Nearby many touristic hotspots. A good price-value ratio.

If anything sells this place it is the location right on the beach front. While the rooms are dated and older, the beds were comfortable enough and the rooms were clean. There are no tvs or phones and wifi is free but can be a weak signal depending where your room is. The staff seem friendly and the grounds are...

We stayed here for the day, until we flew out at night . A picture is worth a thousand words so look at the pics ,The view is wonderful. Also there is no tv in the room, the carpet outside is dangerously worn out with 8 inch holes you could trip on, not safe. There is also no Air conditioning.

The room could use a little improvement..walls had some rust by window & others places on walls& around fridge. Room could use a ceiling fan, twin beds comfy&nice balcony with view of ocean. Enjoyed hearing ocean surf at night.Overall,it was a nice place to visit, close to stores, places to eat etc.

The Mokihana exceeded our expectation, for the price our stay was excellent. Great grounds, great view and great restaurant (The Bull Shed). The double beds were a struggle for us but everything else made up for it.

We love the Kapaá area of Kauai; in the middle of everything! The Mokihana is a darling, low key spot. Not a fancy resort by any means, but we stayed in the suite and it had just been remodeled. Gorgeous! Ocean views from the front and the double lanai in the back. Right above the Bull Shed; best filet and...

We really enjoyed our stay here for 8 nights. While not the most luxurious accommodation in the area, it was clean and the rooms were comfortable. I liked that there was a lot of lighting in the room and our room had a balcony facing the ocean. We could see the sunrise every morning. The other nice part is that...
