Kamuela Inn is a 30-room boutique hotel in the heart of Waimea on the island of Hawaii. Located just a 45-minute drive from the Keahole Airport in Kailua-Kona, and hour's drive from the Hilo Airport, Kamuela Inn serves as a great spot for visiting all that the island has to offer. Serving a daily complimentary continental breakfast, our guests start their day off right with a delicious selection of pastries, breads, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit, boiled eggs and of course, the famous Roy's Kona Coffee blend. Guests also can't stop raving about their beautiful night's sleep on our Simmon's Felicity pillowtop beds and Natural Comfort allergen free pillows, and being snuggled in our soft Comfy sheets. There's just too much to share. Just come and visit us and see for yourself!

A less expensive alternative to the big resorts in the town of Waimea. Up at 3,500' so much cooler in the evening. Only 15 minutes to lovely beaches and 30 minutes to hiking. Waimea is a cute little town with excellent restaurants.

The Kamuela Inn is very clean and quiet. We stayed in one of the renovated rooms and it was immaculate. We were impressed with the grounds and the hotel is in a great location. We were not crazy about the microfiber sheets on our bed. They looked great but were very slippery

Aloha Mom45, Thank you for your kind review. Our Comphy sheets are enjoyed by 99% of guests, but when those who prefer the traditional white sheets, all they need is to request a change and we honor their preference and change them out accordingly. Additionally, the E Komo Mai or Welcome card in each room give clear instructions about our additional amenities such as blowdryers, irons/ironing boards and coffeemakers. A coffee maker with regular or decaf Kona coffee are available for FREE upon request. Our helpful housekeeping or front desk staff would have been glad to have provided this FREE amenity to you. We hope you get a chance to visit again soon. A hui hou. Edlyn Carvalho

Renovation was a good move. The redesigned layout and decor really fits the paniolo town of Waimea. Little high on price, but the breakfast is a nice addition. Checked out the executive suites too and really liked those and am thinking of using this property for a family

Aloha Curiosity, Sorry we didn't earn a higher review from you. We hope price wasn't the factor for this one mark score. We have tried to keep pricing reasonable and offer so much more than other hotels and resorts, not only in our town, but as well as down along the coast. You will not find any other lodging property that provides FREE WI-FI, FREE PARKING, FREE BREAKFAST that includes a continental spread AND hot options like eggs, sausage and fried rice. We also serve complimentary coffee all day, not just during breakfast. The best part about staying with us, NO RESORT FEES!. Actually, the best part is our friendly and helpful staff. We hope you do stay with us again so that we may earn the best rating from you and your family. Until then, have a great 2019! A hui hou, Edlyn Carvalho

We had a perfect overnight stay here for my husband's birthday right before Christmas. The Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) decor throughout the place made for a cozy, country feel - and the Christmas decorations were just adorable, with cowboy boot stockings hung on the stairs.

Please visit again to see the changes that will be happening in this next year. More renovations and more improvements as we listen to our guests and try to provide for all their needs. Until next time, have a blessed New Year as well! Edlyn Carvalho

Sorry I deleted the pic due to I don’t enough storage on my phone but if you want my honest answer . For me it was very descent room simple with small fridge and tv but the most important for me is the cleanliness is out standing and I’m very particular with pillow case and and bed sheets are very clean and I can sure you with that. Dec.28, 2018 My son and I stay Room : 12 Superior (2 Twins) it’s not renovated yet the building because I believe there not done yet renovating but it was pretty clean got shower and very clean bathroom no fun but you don’t need it because Waimea weather are wonderful so you just have open window and feel the fresh air breeze . The room is simple but comfortable and very clean. The pic I’m going to share is the building tru the end left corner that we’re not renovate yet but still I can say it pretty descent place and even there renovated rooms the price is not really bad especially you’re in a tourist spot town.
