This is a little gem. It was very clean and spacious. Ample parking, right below our room. The windows opened onto a beautiful grove of trees. WiFi worked great, we were able to connect our chromecast and stream. It's towards one end of the island, so other places are a bit farther away; waimea canyon is conveniently close.

This is a locally owned, old fashioned (in a good way) inn that reminded me of road trip places we stayed as a family when I was a child. It is clean, well equipped with a nice kitchenette, and absolutely walking distance to all of the restaurants and shops on the main street in Waimea. We decided to stay here for one night after touring the Waimea Canyon area before a very early check in to a catamaran tour of the Na Pali coast leaving from Port Allen (Eleele) the next day. We had a fun dinner in town and an overall great stay.
