To start, you need to know what you are getting before you show up or you may be disappointed. We knew because we checked it out online. This is a very small Inn with small rooms perfectly adequate for our one night stay. It is not a resort or the kind of place that is the destination itself. We spent one night because we wanted to eat at Bar Acuda and hike the Kalalau and didn't want to drive up and back from Waimea. Hanalei Inn is quaint. We stayed in room 5. The room had a coffee maker, small refrigerator, microwave, TV, DVD and wifi. Quite a lot for a small place and room. Our room was very small. The check-in process is unique. You look at the board in the covered lanai and just go to your room. The reservation process is by phone and the person is off premises. We had a little glitch with our billing but that was rectified once detected. Bill the manager was terrific and gives the place a very local feel plus he is a great source of knowledge. We had a lot of fun talking with him. I would definitely come back here.
