I enjoyed my stay at the Palms! Stayed for 2 nights, as the price was right. Comfy bed, clean room, mini fridge, I am all about it. The wifi was a bit dodgy in the unit we were in... but their staff were helpful and got us all connected, no problem. Not near the beach, but close to other amenities like restaurants, shopping, and convenience stores.

The staff were a delight and a pleasure, and made sure that we had an enjoyable stay. They even went out of their way to keep a couple of cardboard bicycle boxes for us, which saved us from what could of been a bit of a hassle. Loved it, perfect for ballin' on a budget.

We stay at the Kauai Palms when we arrive late on Kauai and don't want to make the drive up to Princeville late at night. We also stay here if we have an early morning flight out of Lihue. The rooms are not huge and elegant but they are very clean and the staff is excellent.

The downfall of this property are the paper thin walls. I could hear my next door neighbor as if we were in the same room including coughing, tv shows, conversations etc. For this reason alone, I wouldn't stay again which is unfortunate as this is an otherwise great value hotel.

I stayed here for just one day as it was cheap and close to the airport where I needed to be before my flight. I was pleasantly surprised at how decent it was for the price. Check in was easy. Staff were very nice. Although my room was a bit dated looking, everything was clean and in good condition. The beds were comfortable and there was sufficient storage and space for 2 people. The room had your basics, including a mini fridge. No AC but the ceiling fan and the trade winds provided enough ventilation. They also had beach mats and a couple of chairs that guests could borrow which were nice pluses!

The location is again, really close to the airport and a short driving distance to Kalapaki beach - a pretty good beach and small restaurants and shops. The only downside to this place is I could hear roosters all day which sadly is enough of a reason for me to not stay here again (unless they're able to equip the motel with soundproof windows!).

First the pluses....good location, nice Hawaiian style, nice desk clerk, good shower and fine water pressure, refrigerator, microwave in lobby, phone in lobby, shampoo and moisturizing lotion, decent TV set and lots of stations, and decent bed. The negatives were lobby computer not working despite still being listed on website as being operational...hair dryer also mentioned on site but no hair dryer either. The worst thing by far are the chickens and roosters that seem to have taken over Kauai and apparently the island powers are doing NOTHING. Funny how other states control populations when critters get out of hand (LA and FL with alligators, crocodiles), (CN with deer), ID and WY with wolves). Time to bring in the ghost of Colonel Sanders and 11 herbs and spices and CONTROL the population of wild roosters and chickens. Oh, and BTW, these roosters don't just crow at sunrise...2 consecutive mornings, they were making noise at 4:15 AM...well before sunrise.

Room Tip: Turn on air conditioner to help with wildlife noise and probably some earplugs wouldn't hurt.

The hotel isn't located in a scenic area, but it's convenient because it's a short drive to the airport. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We checked out of the hotel to camp along the Napali Coast for a few days and they kept our extra luggage in storage even though we weren't returning to stay at the hotel afterwards. Our room was tiny and basic, but our bed was comfortable. Our bathroom was old and the water from the shower leaked a bit onto the floor. I would stay here again if I needed a cheap place to stay near the airport.
