We are located on the main strip of Waimea Town just a stone’s throw away from the ocean and Waimea Pier. Everything you need is a short walk from your room including: Big Save and Ishihara Market (local grocery stores), JoJo’s Shave Ice (known as one of the best shave ice locations in Hawaii), and Historic Waimea Theater (for a more intimate, less expensive movie experience) to name a few.
There’s plenty more nearby than the shops and local businesses however! The road to Waimea Canyon, referred to as “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, starts less than a block away from our property. Waimea Canyon has much to offer including: breath-taking views, leisurely and challenging hikes, bike trails, and even a restaurant for refueling after an active day.
Close proximity to the Pacific Missile Range Facility(PMRF)
We are just a 7 minute drive to the Pacific Missile Range Facility(PMRF) which makes our hotel perfect for military and government travelers. Department of Defense, US Navy, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Sandia National Labs, US Army, ITT, Nasa and other personnel are all welcome. Be advised that The West Inn is 1 of only 2 hotels on the west side of Kauai which keeps your drive time to 7 minutes each way. If you stay anywhere else on the island you will have a minimum 45 minute drive to and from work. So if you want to be close to the base with minimal drive time we have you covered.
Close proximity to Kauai Veteran’s Memorial Hospital(KVMH)
We also rent to traveling nurses coming to work at Kauai Veteran’s Memorial Hospital(KVMH). We are 2 blocks from the hospital which is only a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive. Call us at 808-338-1107
