10/10 Exceptional

Cozy, clean, convenient, cute
The cozy room that my family and I stayed in came with 2 comfortable double beds, nice cold ac, free parking, big tv, kitchen with dishes, sink, and a microwave. I loved the location because we took a boat tour of the Na Pali Coast from the Kikiaola Boat Harbor located only a few minutes away. The Waimea Canyon was also conviniently located. This hotel is located in the cute town of Waimea. We were lucky enough to attend the Art Night in Hanapepe located in the next town, which occurs every Friday. When on vacation, we don't usually stay in resorts because we only use the room to wind down and get ready for our next adventure for the following day. So I have to mention that if you love hot steamy showers like me, be aware that AT NIGHT the water doesn't get really hot. It only gets warmat night. I know this because i also took a shower in the afternoon after the boat trip and the water got really hot, how I like it. Another detail I'd like to mention are the walls are thin. Our neighbors were blasting their music, but had the courtesy of turning it off before it got late. Other than that, if you like a cute cozy clean hotel in a cute town and convenient location next to the boat harbor and Waimea Canyon, then this is the hotel for you. It's not a resort and not a shabby motel. This hotel/ motel still exceeds expectations. I would definitely stay here again. Love it!!

My 3 girl friends and I spent 3 nights at this hotel during our trips. The manager Oscar went above and beyond during our stay. We got here with many suitcases, and the hotel only has stairs. Oscar was determined to get us the best parking spot right next to the staircase. That really saved us a trip, since we were all tired from our flight. The next day, one of my friends got injured on a hike. After learning it in a causal conversion at the parking lot, Oscar went to his office and got her some medicine. Even though my friend’s ankle didn’t heal over night, it definitely had helped her survive for the rest of the trip. Our amazing stay with Oscar was topped off with the town celebration event. Oscar accommodated us from start to finish- getting us drinks from secret menu and helping us make friends with the locals. We truly had a blast at the event. We hit so many problems in this journey, and the most heartwarming experience was when Oscar showed up when my friend lost her wallet. My friend was devastated when she found out she lost her wallet at 12am. We ran downstairs to look for her wallet in the car. Oscar, on a duty, approached us and helped us with the search. He went out of his way to call the shop that we might left it at. The next day after we checked out, he even called us to follow up. We are so grateful to meet Oscar. He was a highlight to our stay. Plus, the hotel was clean and spacious enough for 4 adults. Who can ask for more.

Great Location in Waimea
Waimea is very walkable, and this hotel was located right in the center of it, across the street from the theatre, a block from JoJo's and restaurants. Staff are friendly and happy to provide suggestions/recommendations. Rooms have kitchenettes, great water pressure, beds could be more comfortable though. Very satisfied with out stay.
