Kauai Inn was conveniently located and the price was right. We would definitely stay there again. Staff was very friendly also. Had a nice quaint continental breakfast and all night coffee! No alarm clock needed, the roosters take care of that. Reminds me of being back on the farm.

My wife and I did a quick last minute island getaway after a stressful work week. We booked the Kauai Inn the night before our early morning flight. The hotel itself was a great deal priced a little over $100 a night. The inn itself is located next to Nawiliwili Harbor where most of the cruise ships dock. Our rooms...

Small, garden Inn with continental breakfast and you meet the best people. Inn surrounding pool. Beach chairs available, close to airport and reasonable priced. Very friendly staff. Over 100 years of Aloha. On 3 acres of tropics overlooking Newiliwili Bay. Close to cruise ship docking. Old work charm. Cast of Donnovan's Reef stayed there in the early '60s. Not a...

We needed an extra night's stay and couldn't book it at our timeshare. So, we tried the Kauai Inn. We picked it because of its location.....near some excellent eateries, beaches, and the airport. This is not a fancy place. It is clean and comfortable. It has air conditioning (our timeshare didn't). There is a minimum breakfast, but it got us...

First - sticker shock in general about Kauai. Everything is expensive. Therefore, $200 for one night in a hotel is a BARGAIN. And you get what you pay for. This place was totally decent. Not really nice but certainly not a dive either. I would recommend it for the location - near the airport and basically in the middle of...

I ended up at the Kauai Inn because a friend of mine was staying there and we were meeting up to explore Kauai together, so I booked a room on his recommendation. The overall accommodations are pretty basic, but the staff at check-in were super friendly. In fact I initially booked a single night online via Orbitz and then on...

Chose the Kauai Inn on a recommendation of a friend, who lives and works in the area. She said it was a family run business, and was very reasonably priced. My parents and I were on island for two weeks but had to spend a night away from their timeshare for one evening. We had spent the morning on the...

We stayed 2 nights prior to heading farther north on the island. We were greeted warmly on arrival. The overall feeling is low key, family style and friendly. We had a great visit with a local gal , Lark, who books excursions. She went up and beyond to help us find places around the island to explore! We can highly...

We found it at the last moment since our hotel didn't work out. From positive: nice area outside. It's not the cheapest on the island so I would expect some comfort. We had no wifi in our room at all! That's the most frustrating thing about the hotel. The pool is 3 ft deep: very shallow for children. The breakfast...
