If you want to stay in a peaceful hotel that is "off the beaten path", Kauai Inn is perfect. It is a short drive from the airport...close to restaurants....clean...and the employees were very friendly and attentive. Our room was ready when we went to check in at noon! It isn't an elaborate hotel with a lot of glam, a big...

This was our third time staying here and they never dissappoint us. It isn't a 4 star hotel but it is nice and clean and would suggest it to anyone.

This inn is off the beaten path, with a grand view of mountains in the back. The rooms were "walk in your bare feet clean". And for those who love the tv - it had to be at least a 42 inch flat screen. There was a great cross through breeze in our room so I didn't need to use...

We stayed here one night as it is near the airport and we got in so late at night. Our room was clean, the air conditioner was loud, but welcome and we slept well as we had some jet lag. We loved the roosters outside and the mountain view was so serene. Breakfast was just perfect--fresh fruit and some breads,...

Hurricane Irene stranded us in Lihue, Kauai for an additional week. The Kauai Inn made us feel like we were stranded in paradise. The flowers, the pool, the back yards off the balconies, fresh fruits and pastries for breakfast everyday. Very reasonable. The king rooms were 89.00 per day since we stayed for a week. The staff was very helpful...

I stayed at this little place about a week. The staff is great. They visit with guests and try to help as much as they can. They seem to take a personal interest in the quality of the guests' visit to Kauai. The location is wonderful too. It is in a residential neighborhood about 1/4 mile from an industrial harbor,...

Spotless, quiet, basic hotel with all you need, including a healthy breakfast served poolside. The staff, friendly and welcoming. Nestled in the mountains far from the bustle and yet close enough to drive anywhere you need to be We stayed at this hotel after staying in a very expensive house in Poipu rented by family and judging by the price...

It is always difficult to tell what a hotel will actually look like when all you have is their own website pictures to go on. However, I think the Kauai Inn is pretty true to their photos. The staff has been friendly and knowledgeable. We know this isn't the nicest place around town, but great for the price. I have...

We truly enjoyed our stay here! The Inn was charming, with a real island feel. The continental breakfast was good, a few more island-type fruits would have been nice, but it was a good way to start the day. The woman who checked us in, I didn't catch her name, but she is a Hawaiian native, was very friendly and...
