Newly constructed in 2011, this 20 unit hotel is located in the town of Waimea on the west side of Kauai. All rooms and suites come equipped with air conditioning, free wi-fi, free parking, cable TV, More refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and more. Great location for people coming to work at KVMH, KTF or PMRF(only a 10 minute drive) or for people wanting to visit the west side attractions like Waimea Canyon, Polihale Beach, Historic Waimea Town or those taking a boat tour out of Port Allen. Great location if you are going to Waimea Canyon for the day and don't want the long drive home. Less
