From 1923 to 1990 the Hotel Lanaʻi was the only hotel on the island. It seems little has changed here over the decades, other than the conversations that echo through the thin walls. The 10 renovated rooms have hardwood floors, antiques, pedestal sinks, patchwork quilts and more period pieces.
Go for a room with – appropriately – a lanai (verandah) for viewing town, or opt for privacy and quiet in the detached cottage out back. A modest continental breakfast is provided.
