The Kauai Inn is situated approx 5-10 mins drive from Lihue airport. You have to drive by the docks to get to it (which made me think I'd taken a wrong turn!!) but the location and surroundings are actually very nice. We chose this hotel for location more than anything else as we knew we would be out and about everyday exploring all the wonderful things Kauai has to offer. It is about the half way point of the main highway with The Na Pali cliffs at one end and Waimea Canyon at the other. We even managed to walk to the bars and restaurants at Nawillliwilli one evening, it took about 20 mins and was a welcome walk after a large meal!
The rooms are spacious,clean and comfortable and we slept very well most nights-the only disturbance being the roosters which are unavoidable everywhere on the island...!!We also had a fridge and microwave, tea and coffee were available by the pool all day and there was a vending machine for sodas.
The breakfast was nice-bred, pastries/cakes and fresh fruit-the only complaint was that it was only served between 08.30 and 09.30 which was
a) a little too late some mornings (especially when we wanted to hike and avoid the midday sun) and
b) too short for a hotel of this size-The tables filled up rather too quickly meaning that when we did have a table outside we felt quite rushed so someone else could use it.
I would definately recommend this hotel for the comfort and beautiful surroundings and location in terms of exploring the island. If I were looking for somewhere to relax by the pool I would stay somewhere else!
