Very nice helpful staff. Good price for a room. Roosters are everywhere. But that's typical of the whole island.

"KAUAI INN IS A DECENT PLACE TO STAY"
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The de rigueur swimming pool is actually just barely bigger than a hot tub. But that is okay because you have Hawaiian beaches available to you. The room had a noticeable musty smell which is not okay. The grounds are well looked after. When I had to return my room key before 7:00 AM there was no key drop box and no staff to give it to. I had to leave it at the office door. The complimentary continental breakfast was okay. All in all, it was worth the relatively low rates you pay.

"Stay away!"
The rooms are tiny .. hardy any space to open the suitcase. They are stuffy, and smell bad. The mattress is really bad, we could hardly sleep for the 3 nights we were there. The wi-fi barely ever works inside the rooms, and they'll tell you that when you check in, not when you book it. Its not very clean either.

"Family style homey hotel near town and airport"
We stayed here at the beginning and ending of our mostly camping and backpacking trip, it was a nice way to transition to vacation,be close to airport, and clean up and luxuriate afterwards.It was clean and cozy, with a lanai and ceiling fan,microwave, pool,mini fridge,and fresh fruit and muffins in am.Bed was totally comfortable and our room had ac as well.We traveled with son,and family including a baby and we all had fun, the laundry room helped us return home with clean clothes.The staff was super friendly and helpful and accomadating.

"Lovely hotel with extremely helpful staff"
I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel and I am very satisfied with the hotel (rooms, staff and facilities). The only (slight) downside is that it is a little far away from the city and you'll need a car for all kinds of activities.

"Noisy location"
It was the location which was disturbing my rest. Room 101 was facing the docks and harbor installations and I could hear trucks loading/unloading until in the early morning hours on a Friday night (3:30am). Unfortunately, the windows are not soundproof enough and the beeping of trucks in reverse gear was bothersome.

"Loved the Kauai Inn"
We stayed at the Kauai Inn the day we arrived and then again the evening before we left for home. The location of the Inn couldn't be more convenient to Lihue Airport or to what turned out to be our favorite restaurant, Duke's on the beach by the Marriott. The people at the reception desk and the housekeeping staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating. The grounds are lovely and the beds are very comfortable. Rooms are large, and well appointed. My only recommendation is that they provide a folding luggage stand in each room. I looked for one in both of my rooms, and couldn't find one to use. I don't like putting my dirty luggage on the bed, so I had to leave it on the floor. It isn't as convenient to rummage around in a bag while it is on the floor. Other than that, we were delighted with our stay at the Kauai Inn.

"Very quaint"
We liked the quaintness of the Hotel, but it was in an Industrial type neighborhood and not easy to find in the dark. When we checked in I showed the Deskclerk my confirmation from Hotels.com. She saw that we had paid for a pricier main floor lanai room with a king bed. She totally dismissed my paperwork and said we had been upgraded to the 2nd floor. I asked her what the upgrade meant and she said we received a king bed. I alerted her to the fact that the room I booked already had a king bed and she just said we would be happier on the 2nd floor (which meant we had to trudge all the way up a flight of skinny stairs with all of our bags since the Hotel did not have an elevator. There also was not an AC unit, which made it very hard to sleep on the 2nd floor. All in all I was not impressed by this facility and definately not impressed that they made absolutely no effort to give us the upgraded room that we had already paid extra for.

"ONLY if you need to save money and get a deal"
waaay no frills...actually less than that....had to get room deodorizers because of weird mildew smell, etc...the pool is small,cold (70 or less), bitter tasting water, and very shallow..says 3feet, but level was down, so even less...i was only person using the pool...you have to drive thru an ugly industrial area to get in and out...everything simple request we made of the front desk got a no...not even the slightest effort to accomodate...because it poured every day we ended up spending more time at hotel than usual---it's just a room, not a resort...

"Good Price"
Not the most luxurious hotel, but better than some in Lihue. It's older, but comfortable and quiet. The neighborhood lacks charm, but it's a short walk to a shopping area and dining. We had booked 2 rooms with a king bed each through Expedia, and only one of the rooms had a king bed. Not a big deal, but still... Overall, a nice, inexpensive hotel for our last night before getting on a plane.

"Peaceful, quiet, & beautiful setting"
We loved this hotel and the room was with lovely Hawaiian décor. Great HD TV in room, lovely courtyard & pool, view of mountain range and an expansive lawn area w/ homes behind the hotel, clean and well maintained rooms and grounds, and had friendly staff & service. However, it is rather difficult to find when you first arrive, more road signs leading to it would have helped, but then it becomes easy and feels more private and like a "little paradise."

"Very good hotel with great centralized location."
Our experience with the Kauai Inn was very much above and beyond satisfactory; completely helpful staff, very nice breakfast and coffee, and comfortable rooms. It was not a all-inclusive resort, then again that is the type of thing that we were not seeking. I would recommend this lodging to any and all of my friends interested in experiencing Kauai. We were there to extensively explore the island, and it was a comfortable base-of-operations.

"Good value!"
Kauai isn't too touristy and neither is this hotel. The Kauai Inn is located a short drive away from the mega-touristy Kalapaki beach area. You can avoid the high cost of staying at the Kauai Marriott on Kalapaki Beach but still enjoy the full tourist experience by driving to Kalapaki Beach in order to wallow about. Dukes Bar is a nice place to eat, drink and be merry at the beach. The Kauai Inn has nice clean comfortable rooms at about as reasonable of a rate as you are going to find for a hotel on Kauai. The cost of living (at least for the tourist) is a bit high in Hawaii. Provided that you have a car, this makes for a reasonable base camp for taking day trips to the south shore or up to the north shore too. Given the layout of the island it is about as centrally located as it gets. All in all, if you want to stay in a hotel, eat lunches and dinners out, but save a little money on lodging then the Kauai Inn is highly recommended!

"Nice & friendly budget hotel"
This hotel is probably one of the best place to use as a base to explore Kauai if you do not want to pay $$$$ for a fancy resort. + Operated by extremely friendly and helpful locals, you really feel welcomed. + Free coffee/tea/water available all day, complimentary basic continental breakfast (english muffins, some fruits, orange juice..) + You can bring your own food to eat on the terrace (microwave, crokery/cutlery are available) + You can borrow snorkel gear, beach towels, sand mats for the day + Centrally located on the island (max 45mn drive to go anywhere) - Hotel is a bit outdated, though all rooms & facilities are very clean - Swimming pool was cold (end of December) - There was sometimes noise from Nawilili port when unloading/loading cargo (had room on ocean side) - There is no nice beach close to the hotel (our preferred beach was Poipu Beach Park, 20mn drive)

"A good quiet place to stay."
This is a good place to stay if your main goal is to see the island. The hotel was clean, but it's not a place someone would want to spend the day relaxing at the pool. The rooms and pool are too small to spend all day there, but they are good for sleeping or resting at the end of a long day. It's fairly close to the airport and kalapaki beach.
