Friendly & Perfectly Situated

3.8 on July 02, 2015

My wife and I stayed here for two days. It was great! Almost everything (food, shopping, etc.) in Lihue was a walk away. The staff are really helpful; they lent us some stuff for the beach (e.g. snorkelling gear, which was of better quality than that which the tours usually have). Overall, I'd definitely recommend this inn if you're in the area!

The Garden Island Inn is a great location and also a great value. A very unique place to stay! I loved the artwork. The location is close to the airport. Its within walking distance to many local restaurants. I was very pleased with my stay and would stay here again.

This is a very charming place with great rooms, wonderful extras and great staff. Not only did we enjoy the room, they lent us snorkels, chairs and boogie boards!! What a value. Couldn't ask for nicer staff. Everyone will like staying here.

Tropical, relaxing and a very special B&B

4.0 on June 02, 2015

My friends and my visit here was our first stay in Hawaii. This is a very special place to stay, rooms had great space and view and were very tropical and cozy. The front desk was beyond helpful and friendly. They provided whatever service we needed at the time and even offer snorkel gear/beach chairs and towels to borrow. Coffee and pastries always available in the mornings. All staff were beyond friendly and offered great tourism tips and information for travel. Great location, great service and great atmosphere. We will definitely suggest this spot to family and friends and hope to come back!

The grounds are very very nice . A very lovely inn . We will stay here again ! They offer things for kids and the beach as well .


Quaint Inn with fantastic service

4.2 on May 20, 2015

All the staff went way above during our stay. Extremely helpful and friendly. Dining and shopping are right across the street. We would stay here again, but would request a room not facing the street. Thanks for making us feeling so welcome.


Boutique Hotel among the Kauai Resorts

4.2 on April 30, 2015

Clean room with comfy bed made this place a winner. Owners are visible and friendly. Staff are excellent. Older establishment with neat floral paintings. Room sizes will vary. 3rd floor will have cathedral ceiling. The balcony area was small, but adequate. The Garden Inn was central to a lot of activities. A cold AC, microwave, small re fridge and fan are nice.
