Kauai Inn ★★

Hotel Review

Would recommend Thu, Jan 17, 2013
Chris at the front desk was very helpful and all the ladies who worked there were equally as friendly. Small but so close to the Harbor in Lihue

Dining

Cafe Portofino in the Harbor by the Marriot 3 min drive and the best food in the world along with an unbelievable view. Try it at Moonrise. It's on the east side of the island

Felt Unsafe

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 9, 2013
The door knob lock didnt have a button, we had to put our finger inside the door mechanism to push the stem to lock it. We were asked to keep all lights off and unplug items when we left to save energy. The hotel was back behind ship yards and warehouses. Not well lit. We felt very unsafe like we needed to carry a gun or have a body guard. We spent our first day searching for another hotel but everyone was booked. This was the only place that had rooms available. I booked our rooms over 3 months in advance. The pool was dirty with leaves in it. The coffee pot was out in the lobby, not in the rooms so you had to go down stairs to get your coffee every morning. We slept with a chair in front of the door in case the door lock didnt work. We brought this to their attention but, they didnt fix it while we were there. They said well, things do tend to break, In my opinion this door lock was broken a long time ago and should have already been fixed. The pictures posted are very deceiving. Very secluded is another word for out in an area less traveled. We now know why.

Dining

The Ferral Pig, The prices were good and the food was excellent. Very flavorful. Customer service was excellent.

fantastic retired couple getaway

Would recommend Tue, Oct 30, 2012
Wonderful. Beautiful weather, greenery all around. Just like the movies you see in paradise. The location was easy to find. Sight seeing all around the island. Shopping was very near. The only thing we missed was that the pool was only 3 feet. Our room was supplied with clean towels and sheets everyday. It was nice and quiet and laid back.

Shopping hint

Cosco, Walmart and K-Mart.

Beautiful Visit

Would recommend Fri, Aug 24, 2012
The Kauai Inn is a beautiful inn with clean rooms and delightful tropical landscaping. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. They are so willing to share activities on the island and to also book any activity that you are interested in. There is a wonderful breakfast served every morning by the pool. The inn is conveniently located close to many restaurants and local activities.

Time saver

The inn is most accommodating when it comes to booking any adventure on the island. They make the phone calls and all arrangements for you. So simple!

Pleasant Surpise

Would recommend Mon, Aug 13, 2012
It is always difficult to choose a hotel site unseen, but this hotel was such a pleasant surprise. The grounds were beautiful, the room was clean and tastefully decorated, there was a super complimentary breakfast by the wonderful pool, and the staff members were some of the most accommodating I have ever met. I am returning for four more days.

Friendly, affordable

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 1, 2012
The hotel was clean and comfortable enough, considering what we paid. The rooms are friendly. The room had cute lamps that looked like chickens in our room and some nice art, and the TV was a good size and the bed pretty comfortable. The rooms have a microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer, and cutting board (no knife). There's a desk, but you can't really work at it because the TV is on it, and the WiFi is available only in the lobby and is re-ally s-l-o-w, so definitely not a good hotel if you need to work on your trip. It's not near a beach -- actually, it's in an industrial area near the port -- but it's centrally located in Lihue, which is good. But, all in all, it was a good hotel for the money, even if I might be willing to pay more to stay on a beach on my next vacation.

Great hotel for the situation

Would recommend Tue, Apr 5, 2011
The hotel was a little hard to find, but once we were there we were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. They allowed us to check in early so we could get our 13 month old down for his nap and had a crib for him (we weren't traveling with one). The rooms were simple but clean. There is a pool and also the rooms (main floor) have a porch leading out to a grassy area. The staff puts out a decent continental breakfast for the guests starting at 8:00am. We had been staying on another part of the island and stayed at this hotel for the night before we flew out - I would highly recommend this hotel for similar trips. The property is close to some restaurants, beach, and the airport.
