Castle Resorts should be ashamed they haven't taken cared of this place!!! When I walked into the room I had an immediate flashback of traveling as a kid with my family in the seventies. Everything is very old and outdated. The first room we were given was horrible. It stank of cigarettes, the lamp was broken (lightbulb socket hanging off the base!) and there was a small HOLE in the wall!! I suspect the cigarette smell came from the old carpet, drapes, mattresses and everything else that's old in that room. I asked for another room and the cigarette smell wasn't as strong in this one so was slightly better. The beds and bathroom were VERY clean and shampoo/conditioner and soap are provided, but the single upholstered chair in the room was so filthy it looked like something that was picked up from the dump. Waimea is usually very cool so there isn't any a/c which is fine, but the fan was also very filthy and we were afraid to turn it on. At least the window opened so we got fresh air. We live on the island so got the local discount rate, but if we had to pay full price we would have been sooooooo upset! The first floor rooms are not worth more than $55-$60 a night if even that. I heard the second floor rooms are better but those come with what's labeled as a kitchenette (small fridge and sink in a closet) so cost more. If you're on a budget or want a cheap one-night place to stay I guess this place will do.
