Perfect place to land after a really long flight. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Older hotel but well maintained and managed. Would recommend for business trip and for budget conscious travelers. Free parking but no pool or other features there if you want a resort type hotel you will be disappointed. I was very happy there for my first...

Pleasant experience here. Everything was as expected. The rooms are small, but the square footage of each room is provided online, so you know what you're getting. The rooms are also recently remodeled and tastefully done... looks just like the photos. I was pleasantly surprised to find a well-stocked vending machine in the lobby that takes credit cards, a guest...

Decent place to stay in transit but would not recommend for the first night of a honeymoon. Room was cramped and very hot. Roosters making noise all night. Clean and close to the airport but that's it really.

Aloha, Thank you for your response. Yes, it is very hot this time of the year in Hawaii and much sun screen is needed. I am sorry you were uncomfortable in your room. We do have different types of rooms here. There is the standard room, which you picked, that has a ceiling fan or the deluxe room with an...

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Kauai Palms when I stayed there for 5 nights this August. I enjoyed my stay so much that I booked two more for right before I leave Kauai at the end of September. Pros: It is less than a $10 ride from the airport. Right next to the Kauai Beer Company (check out...

My husband & I stayed here for one night with our 9 week old son. Check in was quick and staff was friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, but a lot smaller than we anticipated. It was quite the squeeze to make it work with a safe place for our baby to sleep - my husband ended up sleeping...

This was a good place to stay. It's not fancy, but a good value. I had a package mailed here, which was a great benefit. The guest laundry worked fine. Parking is very close. They have plenty of tourist info. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This was a lovely quaint hotel that was nice to retire to after a long day of exploring and adventure seeking. The bed was incredibly comfortable. While the room may be very small it was perfect for just my daughter and I. Very clean, hot shower, great price and most of all quiet with only the wind rustling through the...

We booked this place for the price and the convenience of being close to the airport for our last night in Kauai (after having spent a week in the Hanalei area). It was under $100/night whereas other places in Lihue were $150-200 (or more). For that price, we got a small but functional room with AC and ceiling fan, ensuite...

This is a basic, older motel, close to the airport, and everything is kept very clean. The shower has been updated and the slightly higher barrier/ threshold is a nice touch to keep the rest of the bathroom dry and clean. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. She came across as genuinely proud of her hometown and...
