Staying true to the natural and simple style of Kauai's North Shore and Hanalei, the Hanalei Inn offers just five quaint and cute rooms, only a block away from beautiful Hanalei Bay. The rooms are without frills and provide queen-sized beds, homey local-style decor, air conditioning, TV, and a covered lanai (porch) to take in the lush mountain views.
Rooms without a kitchen are priced at $139, and with a kitchen they go for $149. A kitchen is a nice touch for those who are looking to save a few bucks by grocery shopping and cooking at home. The great thing about Hanalei Inn is that it’s right out in Hanalei, just minutes from snorkeling, hiking and all of the spectacular North Shore beaches and attractions.

In the yard, you’ll find a barbecue pit, hammocks, and a picnic bench to enjoy the outdoors. There are no phones in the rooms here, only a pay phone outside; since most people travel with cell phones, that doesn't seem to be a problem. This is a good choice for those who intend to stay on the North Shore while in Kaua`i; they offer a small discount for booking four nights or longer. They also have no minimum night requirement for booking a stay.
