We needed a hotel for one night because we couldn't check in to our condo the day we arrived. This was close to the airport which was important because we arrived late and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was on the small side so just be aware if you are planning a long stay. However, it... More

This little hotel was a comfy and clean stay. Fresh coffee in the morning, hot shower, quiet sleep. We stayed our first night around the corner at the Marriott but wanted something more affordable as we were staying 10 days. This was exactly what we wanted. And Millie at the desk is the cutest.

A very clean room with 1 queen bed and a small fridge, however a bit on the small side. Needed a room for one night and found this to be perfect. Checked in late and staff was very accommodating with check in. I would stay again!

This hotel is conveniently located close to the airport, to the Fox rent-a-car pickup, and was in walking distance to Hamura's Saimin, (about 200 yards behind the hotel), which is famous for its ramen soup (they make their own noodles). This was a real plus after arriving to hotel around 5:30 p.m. to be able to freshen up and get... More

Stayed here the night we arrived, rented three rooms for 11, including five children (which was expressed at booking). We left -30 Celsius weather, needless to say that the children were ecstatic in the morning, and though trying to be quiet, were a bit noisy. The lady at the desk, a) had not made coffee for 6 am, and informed... More

Aloha, My name is Maria and I am the General Manager of the hotel. I am sorry to hear that you were met with rudeness by someone we have yet to identify, certainly it was not me or any of our staff members as I arrive to work and open the office promptly at 7am and immediately begin making coffee...

We wanted to stay near the airport to meet up with friends coming in the next morning and chose this hotel for its low cost and location (close - but not too close to the airport). Even though the cost was low the value was high with very comfortable rooms, lots of in room amenities, and a tremendous amount of... More

Not sure what to expect but was certainly pleasantly surprised. Hotel is close to the airport as well as near to Rice Street - where we discovered Kauai Beer Company. The room was quaintly decorated, compact and immaculate. It had a bed, two chairs, TV, wardrobe, refrigerator. There is a ceiling fan as well as air-conditioning unit. The bathroom was... More

If you are on a budget, this is a good place to stay. It is also very close to the airport. The room we had was small, but we were hardly ever in it because we were there for a wedding. The rest of the family was in Poipu. We arrived very late (after 11:00) and the manager was so... More
