Awesome clean place. It's close to airport and at driving distance to literally everything. Myself and my family we stayed there for a night. It's a very homely place.We loved our stay there. Kris at the front desk is a super nice guy. My daughter wants to go back to Kauai and stay in this inn longer. It has nice views of mountain. We are definitely going back.

Great location near the airport and able to drive to North shore and South shore. Rooms are clean. There's plenty of room outdoors to hang out. They have beach towels and folding chairs you can borrow. Staff is friendly and helpful, treated us like family.

We were looking a hotel close to airport and with reasonable price and we found this hotel. It is a lovely site. You can see the mountains so close. It is a fantastic moment take a bath in the pool or simply relax and see the fantastic view from the longe chair that you can find around the pool. The hotel has some beautiful two story buildings and around them you can see an extraordinary garden. The staff is so friendly. The hotel is tidy and clean. We would like travel again to Kauia only to relax in that hotel for some days.

I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel near the airport as I didn’t want to drive across the island at night. The Kauai Inn was perfect! It is tucked away near the Industrial Docks in front of these beautiful mountains minutes from the airport and right by the main roads that go around the island. The grounds are beautifully maintained with a relaxed feel. The staff is available for any questions which made my stay easy. I throughly enjoyed the chickens and friendly cat that roams the property. If you are looking for a ritzy resort type stay then keep looking but if you want to stay at a hotel that gives you a local feel with super comfy beds, this is the place.

This was an overnight for us prior to going to our VRBO on the North Shore the next day. This is a modest but very comfortable older hotel, quiet and with a beautiful mountain view. It is close to the airport and the cruise port but otherwise a little off the beaten path. However, it is a quick 15-min walk to the nearby shopping/restaurant mall. The staff at the hotel are lovely and went above and beyond to help us through some very tricky logistics. The pool is very nice and it is quite at night. The breakfast served is fairly sparse---carbs and coffee/tea, no protein or juice, so be advised, but we made do. This is a very nice place overall, not flashy but very homey and clean, excellent staff!
