Great place for a short stay
Oscar is a great manager. He's friendly and full of awesome island insights. The hotel is clean and casual. We appreciated the fridge/micro in the room. Our only complaint is that the mattress was soft and lumpy. We both had backaches every morning. The town itself is limited as far as restaurants. The steakhouse is terrible. We ate there because it was the only thing within walking distance at dinner time. Great location for getting up the canyon early and easy access to Port Allen and Hanapepe Art Walk on Friday night.

Good value
Our first impression was oops, we made a mistake. But when we spent a little time there, we realized that this was a very good value, considering the other properties on Kauai. The inn was recently renovated so the rooms were decently appointed, clean, and fresh. Second floor rooms have high ceiling and balcony. Furnished kitchenette was very nice (especially the Kauai coffee). On the downside, parking was not great, no elevator to second floor, maid service was only done twice a week. These items were OK with us given that we saved $$$ on the cost of our stay vs. the resorts in Poipu.

Our Waimea Stay
Went in September when there were on a couple other guests present. The front desk checked is in late and made themselves available at all times. No complaints here!

Modest Hotel
Modest, family owned hotel. Located in Waimea and walking distance to local eateries and shops. Great place to stay if you are hiking the canyon. Room is only cleaned 2-3 times a week.
