Hotel Coral Reef is a great place to stay - the ocean front rooms are exactly that - fabulous views of the ocean around 100 yards away. Its a small family run place - so don't expect the Grand Hyatt - but they make up for the small size with very comfortable and attractive guest rooms, great location and absolutely reasonable rates. Best of all is that the staff is friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The hotel rents bikes for about $5 a day and there's a several mile long bike/walk/jogging path directly in front of the hotel. The TV's in the rooms have lots of channels, so you have something to do during down-time.
The area is good because its kinda in the middle - between the north shore and waimea - and not too far from the airport. We had no trouble getting around the island and appreciated the central location of Hotel Coral Reef. There are also many nice restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away.
When I go back to Kauai, no question, I"ll stay at Hotel Coral Reef again!
