The staff was amazing! As we walk in, it seemed as if we were stepping back into time. The rooms were quaint, décor was fitting and the beds were well dreamy, especially when a breeze came through the window. I will definitely recommend this place without hesitation. Mark my words I will be back. Mahalo Nui Loa to the Staff...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is the least expensive on the island but after seeing the other 2, it's the cutest! Very quaint and homey in the center of town, the staff was most welcoming especially Sara at the front desk. She helped us get our car, assisted us w...

The hotel is an old plantation house that the old Dole executives used to stay in. The climate of Lanai is cool, the air clean and refreshing. You can smell the pine trees with every breath. Lanai City is not really a city but a town with one main street that circles Dole Park. Manele Bay Four Seasons is at...

For a quick getaway I think this quiet Hawaiian isle is your best bet. The airport is small and the city is more like a strip and if you blink you will pass right by it! Luckily we had a car and it felt as if we were the only ones in it! The land was filled with red dirt...

What a pleasant and satisfying experience I had at the Hotel Lanai! The room was exceptional and clean and I loved that bed (mattress) and Hawaiian Quilt! I had such a great night sleep! But what I really want you to know is that two of the employee's gave exceptional customer service to me - Shanette and Bart. Shanette went...

As I have read some of the other rewiews I am glad I don't read them prior to my visit, it may have made me question my decision to stay when there was absolutely no reason to. The most important thing to remember is why you or what you are choosing this beautiful little place. This is truely a place...

Okay-- I had read the reviews about Hotel Lanai and was worried about the noise. We wanted to stay here since it's historic (and the prices are better than the resorts). So we took a chance and... it is loud, however we never had to use the earplugs that I took with us in case it was too loud. You...

Aloha, traditional Hawaiian comfort and care through and through; from the manicured landscape to the eager greeting Sarah and the entire staff conveys this is manifest Aloha. Perched hillside overlooking the village square this cottage style sanctuary reminds one somewhat of Caneel Bay in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This venue is lovingly cared for with attentive precision. The rooms are...

If you can live without a television, and if you aren't willing to spend $400 a night for a room, this is the only hotel on Lanai for you. Our room, a "standard," was small but tastefully furnished. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially a desk clerk named Sarah. The restaurant was excellent but much pricier than the hotel...
