Kauai Inn ★★

Fantastic hotel for the price

Would recommend Tue, Jan 4, 2011
It was a very nice place to stay, very comfortable bed! The place has charm, it is an old hotel but well kept and a very friendly and helpful staff. The price was very good indeed and I thoroughly recommend it. The location is not the best, so you definitely need a car, but you do need a car if you are on vacation in Kauai'i anyway. The breakfast is included in the price and it is ok.

Attractions

The north shore, if you are into snorkelling, go to Tunnels beach, and the Kalalau trail next to Ke'e beach (a couple of miles from Tunnels).

Nice

The Kauai Inn is very conveniently located near water, shopping and just a few miles from the airport. The beds were clean and comfortable. We were surprised, though, that the rooms were not made up every day. The continental breakfast was very good and included prepared bowls of melons and pineapple as well as breads, muffins, juice and hot beverages. The pool is disappointing as it is only three feet deep which makes it ideal for children but not for adults. We had to close the windows at night and turn on the A/C to drown out the sounds of the free-roaming roosters crowing at 4:00 am! We weren't told that there were beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards and grass mats available to use at the beach (a card placed in each room with this information would be helpful to a first-time guest.) All-in-all, we loved the setting and went home happy.

Great price, good location

Would recommend Tue, Jul 13, 2010
We had a great stay. The views were gorgeous. It's located very close to Kalapaki Beach. Kauai Inn is located on the East(ish) side of the island, so it was easy to travel to all sides of the island within a reasonable amount of time. They have a basic continental breakfast every morning beginning just after 8am, which includes breads and fruits. They have beach mats, beach towels and coolers available which was GREAT! Just ask at the front desk. Because of the central location, we were able to go out and about during they day and come home to rest before heading out to dinner. We enjoyed our stay.

Dining

Kalapaki Joe's has a great happy hour from 3-6. Duke's Barefoot Bar has great food at reasonable prices too. Both are located right at Kalapaki Beach.

Kaua'i Inn, Lihue, Kaua'i, HI

Would recommend Tue, Jun 8, 2010
First night ever in Hawai'i, stressed from a LONNNGGG flight from Florida. But [...], the front desk clerk, cheerfully waited for us to arrive after closing time, helped us get a delivery dinner, and graciously helped us to the room. The moon was full, and the outline of the mountains magical. The night temperature perfect to leave the windows open for the cooling breeze, and the birdsong at dawn was a delight. Breakfast filled with fresh fruit and pastry. What a wonderful introduction to Hawai'i.

Friendly welcome

We were arriving late into Lihue airport, Kauai, and wanted an overnight stop nearby before driving up to our condo location. They greeted us warmly, fixed us up with ice and soft drinks despite the late hour, and served a decent continental breakfast with really good coffee in the morning. Beware of the little biting "mosquitoes" around at all hours indoors and out - probably due to their lush garden setting (which is lovely).
