Quiet & Clean

Pros: Clean, quiet & comfortable
Cons: The laundry facilities. While not everyone may use them it was pretty pricey to run a load through the dryer and it not even dry.
Location: Right in the middle of everything. South shore, north shore, beach, hiking, waterfalls, adventure, relaxation....
This was a lovely quaint hotel that was nice to retire to after a long day of exploring and adventure seeking. Not your typical resort environment. If that's what you are looking for this is definitely not it. There is no a/c, but I personally loved that I could just open the windows and let that fresh Hawaiian breeze blow right through. It's very close to the airport, grocery store and restaurants. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The room while very small was perfect for just my daughter and I.

Quality Motel for a night or two

The rooms are pleasant, they have a TV, a mini fridge and a nice big bed,. They are clean and satisfactory. It's a nicely kept Motel essentially.

Quaint and Convenient

Pros: I liked the location - Waimea and Hanalei were both 30min drives, convenience stores were under 10min away, and restaurants are just around the corner
I must admit that after reading some reviews of the Kauai Palms Hotel, I looked up other places to stay on the island because I feared feeling disgusted with some things I read. However, I talked with my boyfriend and we decided that we really only needed a place to sleep as we were there for a wedding and planned on spending most of our time exploring anyway. The hotel is in a residential area, and we did feel a bit nervous pulling up to the location - simply because we were judging by the exterior. We arrived five hours before check-in time and the woman behind the counter was able to find us another room so we could check-in early. She was very nice and provided us with directions to the wedding reception like a true local - knowing the street names and landmarks that would guide us there easily. Our room was on the 2nd floor, and was very quaint. We felt that the entire place had character, whereas it wasn't shabby but obviously older. It was as clean as an old hotel could be and didn't have the luxuries of a chain-hotel would, but it served the purpose that we needed it for - a place to sleep. Though the roosters crowed early in the morning right outside of our room, we really didn't mind because it forced us to get up early and take advantage of exploring as much as we could during our 3-day visit. If you are a high-maintenance person, I recommend staying somewhere in either Poipu or Kapa'a. Otherwise, this place is quaint and convenient - perfect for a short stay.

Will not stay here again!

We chose this hotel for its proximity to the airport. We arrived late and did not want to find our way to the vacation rental in the dark. All we were looking for was a place to sleep before we set out for our Hawaii adventure. I did not expect the Ritz, however, this was worse than a Motel 6. For $100 per night, I was extremely disappointed. Walls paper thin. Needless to say, we did not get the rest we were looking for. Checked out as fast as we could, found a Starbucks, waited there for Costco to open, got our supplies for the week and then we were on our way to our real vacation!!!!
