This was the second cheapest hotel on the island, and I also opted for the AC, which was a great choice. The woman at the front desk was extremely nice but the location is lacking (not on the beach and in a sketchy residential area) and the rooms were not soundproofed at all. I have never been to a hotel... More

If you aren't used to roosters waking you up at sunrise, then don't stay here. Small tiny ants were in the room as the windows aren't sealed. Bathroom wasn't as cars as I would have liked it to be. The window air conditioner worked nicely and the room was very dark.

I stayed two nights in the hotel. The first night was in one of the non-a/c rooms and the second night was in a room with an a/c for which I had to pay an extra $11. The non-a/c room was hot with an extremely anemic ceiling fan that seemed to only have one working setting--"low". The second night I... More

The room was fine for a short stay, but I wish we would have gotten a room with AC. There were windows that allowed for a nice breeze, but there were several people coming and going, lights, and of course Kauai's famous roosters. The room was clean but in need of updating. I would stay again for one night, but... More

Booked 3 nights and left after 1 night with great relief. It was the room and the location, not the staff. This place has the look and feel of a tired boarding house. The room was over-deodorised, obviously well-worn and tired. Tried not to touch things and didn't even use the shower. For the first time in our hawaii trip... More

I cannot say enough how amazing Jocelyn was to our family. She has so much grace, Aloha and pure Hawaiian Spirit. She is a remarkable person who made us feel so incredibly welcome. Thank you from our family to yours!

The staff was very helpful and friendly but this was definitely a budget hotel. The rooms have very little area for luggage. It was quiet and just around the corner from Hamura's. The bedspread was very worn and in poor condition.

Don't get me wrong when we first pulled up I thought....no way! But once I went to the office and was greeted I felt right at home. My family and I enjoyed our stay as we had multiple families in other rooms staying there initially for the place of convenience as we were attending a baseball tournament. We mostly cooked... More

We stayed in an upstairs room (#24) with kitchenette - yes, it was small, but there was plenty of light from the 3 windows. There was a table and one chair, but we were gladly given another chair upon request. Wifi worked great. Fridge was small, but large enough for our needs, and it was very handy having a coffee...

We were supposed to stay there for 3 days, just couldn't do it. We had paid extra for the upgrade so we could have a kitchen. Just a small refrigerator and microwave. Very dark, jail cell is what I would to describe this room. No Clock, no phone very very basic. Not even enough light to try to use the... More
