We had a flight arriving in Lihue at about 9PM and wanted a reasonably priced hotel near the airport for just one night. This hotel had generally good reviews so I booked it through Hotwire (yes, you can often figure out the hotel by the description). What a disappointment. First, know that Kauai has few street lights and it is...

KauaiPalmsHotel, Manager at Kauai Palms Hotel, responded to this review

I am sorry to hear your stay with us was not a positive experience. I agree that the street lighting in Lihue town is dim and can be improved. I have taken your suggestion of better lighting the area and I will be improving the hotel's property by lighting the entrance and walkways for better guidance and ease for our...

I enjoyed my stay at the Palms! Stayed for 2 nights, as the price was right. Comfy bed, clean room, mini fridge, I am all about it. The wifi was a bit dodgy in the unit we were in... but their staff were helpful and got us all connected, no problem. Not near the beach, but close to other amenities...

We stay at the Kauai Palms when we arrive late on Kauai and don't want to make the drive up to Princeville late at night. We also stay here if we have an early morning flight out of Lihue. The rooms are not huge and elegant but they are very clean and the staff is excellent.

The downfall of this property are the paper thin walls. I could hear my next door neighbor as if we were in the same room including coughing, tv shows, conversations etc. For this reason alone, I wouldn't stay again which is unfortunate as this is an otherwise great value hotel.

I stayed here for just one day as it was cheap and close to the airport where I needed to be before my flight. I was pleasantly surprised at how decent it was for the price. Check in was easy. Staff were very nice. Although my room was a bit dated looking, everything was clean and in good condition. The...

First the pluses....good location, nice Hawaiian style, nice desk clerk, good shower and fine water pressure, refrigerator, microwave in lobby, phone in lobby, shampoo and moisturizing lotion, decent TV set and lots of stations, and decent bed. The negatives were lobby computer not working despite still being listed on website as being operational...hair dryer also mentioned on site but no...

The hotel isn't located in a scenic area, but it's convenient because it's a short drive to the airport. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We checked out of the hotel to camp along the Napali Coast for a few days and they kept our extra luggage in storage even though we weren't returning to stay at the hotel...

My girlfriend and I just stayed here this past weekend (3/15-3/17) for a really quick trip to Kauai. We were only going to be in town to audition for a film and had to book our trip pretty last minute. We needed a place close to the airport and the Kauai community college. The service here is very very polite...
