Great place to stay

Really nice place. Very accommodating people. Love all the little extras such as towels and boogie boards. Definitely would stay here again. Great location as a stopover place on your way to and from the airport at a reasonable price. My last swim was in the little bay across the street. Very nice.


Lovely inn

Really enjoyed our stay at Garden Island Inn. The staff were super kind and helpful and the rooms were clean and charming. Only wish the lanai was not so near the road, but overall had a great stay here.


Friendly & excellent location

We had a four night stay at Garden Inn. It is only about 10 mins from the airport (no noise from planes) and a great location for exploring the Island. The staff are exceptional, very friendly and helpful with suggestions. Our room was on the first floor and was very large with refrigerator, sink (along with dishwashing liquid etc). In the morning there are fresh bakery items available in reception as well as fruit and other snacks (like muesli bars etc) and team & coffee. The isn't a pool or bar but you literally just walk across the road to the beach and also to a number of restaurants and bars - all of which are great. We also just bought some beers &swine from the local shop and enjoyed them on our balcony (lanai). The hotel provides beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, snorkelling gear. So all in all this is a terrific place if you want something that isn't your common 'resort' style accommodation..

Was so happy to stay here, bright and cheerie. Complimentary towels and chairs for the beach across the street. Complimentary snacks, videos and more. Had a wonderful time. Loved the sound of the surf and water fountain. Lulled us to sleep. Good price for Hawaii too.

This place is so comfortable, convenient and clean. We love staying here and being across the street from so many shops, dining and the bay. The grounds and art are amazing. This place is outstanding.
