"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.

For the price the hotel was great. We stayed one night after staying at the Westin before leaving the next day. It isn't Westin quality, but you aren't paying Westin prices either

The room was clean and roomy, but the surroundings were loud. The industrial area nearby was loud and we could hear the people upstairs a lot. The "continental breakfast" was orange slices and English muffins.

Older motel, clean but starting to show its age. Was told there was a strict check in time of 3 p.m. (tried to check in at 2) resulting in multiple people arriving at the same time to check in with only one person checking people in.

Finding the hotel at night was a problem because of the hotels location and the fact that some streets do not have signs. Some tips on finding the hotel would be advantageous.

"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.

"Lovely, quiet, quaint"
We felt so lucky to happen upon this little gem. Tucked away in a residential area off the beaten path, it was enchanting. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was a fridge & a microwave, a lanai with the most incredible view! I really could have used a bedside lamp with an outlet for charging electronics. We also would have liked more lighting around the desk area. The selection of TV channels was limited, for those who came to watch TV. Overall, it was wonderful, and I would absolutely choose to stay there again.

"A very beautiful comfortable and clean hotel."
Our room had been recently renovated and we found the king size bed very comfortable. Pleased to have air conditioning which was useful at times. We had stayed at a studio previously at the Wyndham Resort in Princeville which we found to be very small and very hot. Moving to the Kaui Inn turned out to be a real pleasure. The grounds were very pretty and the room quite spacious with a new flat screen T.V. Also enjoyed the continental breakfast but wished there was more variety of choices.

"The Kuai Inn has true spirit of ohana"
This is a great family-run hotel conveniently located to the airport and Downtown Lihue. The neighborhood is safe but there is no ocean view. We appreciated the personal touches like sunscreen & insect repellant in the lobby and the excellent restaurant and sightseeing advice from the receptionist. She even called multiple helicopter companies when our scheduled trip was cancelled due to weather and was able to get us on a trip the morning before we left and have us dropped off at the airport afterward. The staff at the Kauai Inn provides exceptional guest service!!

"Served the purpose very well"
Needed a room for 2 nights after our 2 week stay in a Princeville condo, and this was a very nice facility and good value. Nice clean unit on very nice grounds. Parking was plentiful, with 3 or 4 spaces for each car. Entered the room, went out on the lanai to hear an annoying dog. Walked to the office, mentioned it, and wasn't half way back to the room and the barking ended. Never heard another single bark! Not what we would choose for the entire vacation, but near to everything, and was exactly what we needed. Very pleased.

We will stay here again when we come back to Kauai. It is a quiet, peaceful, smaller hotel in a Hawaiian residential neighborhood. The help was very nice to us. The guests coming and going were an interesting and pleasant assortment from around the world- a lot of folks sit down to have their morning coffee near the pool. Nice little pool and well manicured grounds with tall palms and flowering plants. It is tucked away behind the harbor with a cruise ship but a short drive to shops and really nice restaurants and beautiful bay.

Staff was friendly and helpful, always greeting me by my first name. I asked for dinner recommendations and was completely satisfied. When I returned, I received a call from the front desk asking me how dinner was. Easy 5 minute drive to all the major stores and public beach access is nearby. Close to the airport, yet far enough away that I wasn't annoyed by airline traffic.

Kauai Inn was quite pleasant, The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable, nothing fancy- liked the king sized bed that we requested. The offer of papaya and mango and coffee in the am was also a plus. A little difficult to find and it would be nice to have a sign on the highway as well as the road to the Inn to assist you in locating the Inn. I wouldn't mind going back to the Inn should the occasion arise again.
