There is a sign over the employee entrance at the Hotel Lanai that reads "Whatever it Takes". On our recent visit to Lana'i, we had the pleasure of staying a few nights at Hotel Lanai where everyone at the hotel went out of their way to ensure our stay was top notch...they indeed did whatever it took to be sure...

Based on how I like to travel…. Hotel Lanai is as close as I want to get to camping. For me, Hotel Lanai is “glamping” at its best! On February 19-22, I discovered this charming bed and breakfast getaway as a place where you literally can disconnect and decompress. Guest rooms have no TV. No phones. However, this is the...

The Hotel Lanai was everything one could hope to experience in a Hawaiian vacation hotel stay short of being on the ocean. I've read the few negative reviews from years ago, but they were certainly not reflective of my experience. Then again, I did not stay in a standard room, rather I stayed in the detached cabin/cottage. Our experience while...

I'll address the noise first, people next door or in the hallway can be heard, but when the other guests retire for the evening, it is a very quiet place. I did use my earplugs for a while the night I went to sleep early. Noise will travel with a historic building, but I feel any noise outweighs the personality...

We stayed two nights at the Lana'i City Hotel last week, mostly to see what the Island was like. The Hotel is old, but very well maintained. The rooms are small, but very comfortable, although the beds are only doubles and do need to be replaced. The staff are extremely pleasant and very accommodating. Get a lanai room, with a...

Very quiet small hotel on Lana'i. Not alot to do, so come prepared with a book or golf clubs. A shuttle will drive you between the three hotels, but if you want to explore any further you will need to rent a vehicle. They are hard to come by, so make your reservation early.

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel Lanai. The staff is incredible. You feel the presence of Aloha immediately upon entering. I would recommend requesting the cottage. It's totally private, beautifully decorated with brand new flooring, upgrated bathrooms, great bed and everything is immaculate.

Hawaii's hidden gem is definitely Hotel Lana'i! If you seek the hospitality of a bed and breakfast with the amenities of a major resort - look no further than Hotel Lana'i. The Lana'i City Grille boasts the best culinary venue in the island featuring a diverse menu while sticking to the culture of the island. Mike, Michelle, Mary Lou and...
