The hotel was simple and clean, exactly what we wanted for the right price right on the ocean. There was free wifi and parking. We were happy to have a non-pool side to offer a bit more quietness as that was what we desired. The conditioner, soap bar and lotion are all organic :) We found the bed and pillows... More

This property will only get better. It's a 4.5 now but I gave it a 5 because of the ongoing rehabilitation of this older property. The rooms are remodeled and clean, bright colors have been used throughout. Beds are good, linens fresh and modern, and the toiletries are tropical in scent. Breakfast was continental and coffee was Kauai and very... More

Stayed here with a tour so were a captive group but we were pleased with the rooms. Had a room that would be considered poolside I guess. Need to keep the curtains pulled for privacy but was very easy access to the pool and out to the beach. I say beach with tongue in cheek as there was sand to... More

I've been in this hotel for 4 nights, it was amazing. Modern room, nice pool, wonderful view for the beach, parking for free. They are located near to restaurants, Lihue airport, Safeway and CVS. Laundry and dry machines are available, everything is clean, the staff is pretty cool. They just offer a pretty simple breakfast, bananas, juice, coffee, tea and... More

Rooms have been renovated and are great. Only unfortunate thing is that the rooms are not soundproof. If no one is staying above you, however, all is good! There is a DVD player (PlayStation) in the room with unlimited DVDs available to borrow. Hotel grounds are on a decent beach - lots of room to suntan and nice to swim... More
