For the price, this hotel can't be beat. It's by no means the Mauna Lani or the Hilton, so if you're looking for that kine hotel I wouldn't recommend it. Just needed a place to shower and crash after work in Waimea so this place was perfect. Others complaining about roaches.... I didn't see a single one, but that doesn't...

We loved how central this hotel was. It was right near everything in Waimea. We were also pleasantly surprised by how clean the room was! It is an older motel and a little dated, but definitely clean and we felt very safe staying here. The room has a cozy, cottage feel - no central air, but it cooled off well...

For 100$ a night you'll get roaches, a carpet that looks like someone s*** on it and mold all over the bathroom. Disgusting! Close by are just fast food restaurants. Way to expensive for this place. Staff was nice though.

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, don't expect it here. Waimea Country Lodge has a Beautiful Rustic atmosphere which matches its town of cattle ranchers, cowboys & cowgirls and down home friendly people. You'd have to see it to appreciate it. We Loved it here and the Cooooool nights was perfect for this charming place. The restaurant next...

Location was great. The room was pretty old. We found lots of live roaches throughout the bedroom area and bathroom. The sheets appeared dirty. I couldn't stop itching the entire night in bed. And it was so loud there. People above us seriously talked so loudly the entire night long. There was dragging of furniture above us at 3 am....

This was a nice, large room. Parts were old but functional, parts were absooutely charming. The restaurant next door is great. The bad part - when we got ready for bed, the sheets on the bed were GROSS! Clearly had not been changed! I went immediately to the front desk and just asked for clean sheets. The lady there came...

I stayed 1 night. I had to ask for soap at reception. The fridge wouldn't work and I had to change it to another powerpoint to get it going. The chairs were so grubby I wasn't game enough to sit on them. My view was of the school next door.

We had a large comfortable room. The room looked like it was in a lodge even though it was in the middle of town. The hotel had a restaurant that served good food. It was also close to other restaurants and shopping.

This definitely is a very run-down place, as noted by other travelers. Bathroom old but at least clean. Kitchen cabinets did not smell good and we washed everything before using it. What definitely was unacceptable was that the beds were not made because of "personal items" (very obviously our PJs) on the beds. Also, management should instruct their cleaning personnel...

Chose this hotel for its location and access to north shore and Mauna Kea. The low price around holidays should have given the truth away: the place is old, shabby and mediocrely maintained. 2 large beds were adequate but did not look inviting, one thin blanket each, worn sheets, hard lumpy pillows. We got several dirty towels - or maybe...
