Lihue Kauai Hotel Reviews

Guest Comments

What our guests have to say…

Most Reasonable Option


“We stayed for 10 nights as a family and were very happy there. The central location is a big plus as well as the freshly brewed Kauai Coffee in the morning. The hotel is not new or luxurious but instead charming with its old fashioned style. And it is probably the most reasonable option on Kauai.”

Fantastic Bargain


“This place was exactly what most say… clean, friendly and convenient! The nice young man at the desk the night we checked in was awesome to deal with!  We had the deluxe room which had everything we needed and more. They even had a hot plate to cook on and all the dishes were supplied!  Friendly service from beginning to end.  The beds were comfy. I loved this little gem of a place.”

This is the Real Kauai!


“The Kauai Palms Hotel was ‘local kine’ all the way.  The people who worked there were super nice and helpful.  Don’t waste your money staying at one of the many huge resorts on the Island, stay at this locally owned and operated hotel and see what Aloha is all about.”

Late Check-In Was Easy


“We arrived very late to Lihue, communication was great prior to arriving about how to check in after hours. Late check in was very easy. Hotel was clean, comfortable and close to the airport. Staff were very friendly.”

Last Minute Room


“We stayed in Kauai for 10 days at another place, on the last day we had to check out at 10:00 am and our flight left at 9:30 pm. This is a problem because what do you do all day without having a place to shower or relax? I found this place – cute, clean and close to the airport. After we went to the beach, we checked in here, napped and showered. Then we went to dinner, rested and then went to the airport. It was very nice to have a close, comfortable place to go. It is not new or fancy but it is quaint and clean. Exactly what we needed.”

Perfect Little Room


“I had a wonderful stay and it was in a local area that I could walk.  My room was small and cozy and I felt completely safe staying at Kauai Palms Hotel. I visited All Michael’s and his Angels Church, which was very close to where I was staying. It was a delightful stay.”

Clean, Comfy and Cheap


Kauai Palms Hotel is close to the Airport and a very good hotel for that price. We have been here for the second time and didn‘t get disappointed. Its still very clean and comfortable. Late check in after 9 pm was no problem and all in all I would highly recommend this hotel. If you‘re looking for a good breakfast close by go to Danis Restaurant next to the fire station.”

Charming Best Value


“Lovely modest and nice rooms, friendly, truly islander living! Great amenities and close to the mountains, great to wake up to a beautiful mountain-scape, quiet area, TV, fridge, full bath, love the lamps.”


5 Star Staff


“Hotel is nice and clean. Can hear neighbors sometimes but usually not an issue. Upstairs balcony is relaxing as you can hear the palm trees rustling in the wind. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.”


Great Service & Clean Room


“The staff was so pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean. We missed our flight and had to spend an extra night near the Lihue airport. Super close. Don’t let the outside fool you. It was safe, clean, and quiet. Just what we needed without spending a ton of money. The $$$$ we saved paid for a great dinner that night and breakfast the next day.”

-Stockton, California

Clean, Budget, Super Nice Staff


“Location is convenient, close to Costco and Walmart.   Our room had 1 Queen and 2 twin beds, a microwave, small fridge, plates, cups and silverware, dining table with 2 chairs and 3 night stands. Very convenient. Sheets are clean. Beds are on the soft side. All the hotel staff were helpful and pleasant. “

-Sandy S.

Very Nice Place, Clean & Cute


“Conveniently located, near to several dining options and supermarkets, this place is nice and clean.  The lady at the reception is super sweet, makes you feel at home, we had a great stay here. Near to the airport but not too near (=not noisy). I highly recommend it “

-Trieste, Italy

Clean, Safe & Quaint


“The property is very clean and quaint. The staff was very nice and everything was ready for us as expected. It is not a fancy resort but a comfortable neighborhood hotel within walking distance of a brewery and at least a half dozen local restaurants!  We stayed one night on our way to our timeshare. We would not hesitate to stay again! “

-Will | Trip Advisor

Good Budget Hotel


“The place is basic but a great value for the money. It was clean, had good shower, refrigerator, a TV with expanded stations and is close to everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful.  It is located in the sunnier end of Kauai which was important to us and centrally located. You can have air-conditioning and a full kitchen if you desire. “
