Would not stay here again ... Our room was a dungeon
Hayley L, Laguna Niguel, California
Mon Sep 24 09:11:21 EDT 2018
PROS: The hotel offered two free bike rental vouchers which we LOVED! The trail was awesome and it was a highlight of the trip! Definitely take advantage of the free rentals! Then again, it's only $10 if you don't have a voucher, so it's worth it to stay somewhere else and just pay the $10. (Also, we didn't realize this while booking, but the trail is NOT accessible from the hotel - you have drive to the bike rental shop about 10 minutes away.) We had a late flight so the hotel offered the hospitality suite to freshen up a few hours before our flight - we were able to shower after the beach so we were grateful for that. CONS/WARNING: The hotel itself is fine - overpriced dining area, two pools (one with a nice view of the ocean), etc. BUT make sure they don't give you a room on the 'ground floor' of the Maile or Pikake Wing (I think ours was Pikake but after seeing other reviews, it looks like both ground floors have the same problem). We stayed at Kauai Shores for part of our trip (5 minutes down the road) and decided to splurge & stay at this Hilton property for the remainder of our trip ... turns out we should've stayed at Kauai Shores the whole time. There were no stairs to access the room, only an elevator- this is a clear sign that the room is too far underground for guests. The room was dark, musty, and old- in fact, it was so far underground that there was no cell service (we have Verizon & AT&T)! Despite the white bedding and comfy mattress, we felt like we were in a dungeon. It seems like the rooms that share a courtyard between the Maile and Pikake Wings are small dungeons, but the rooms on the opposite side of both wings aren't quite as bad because they are either at the top of the hill or the bottom of the hill. The pictures of the hotel looked very nice online but they definitely did not show any of the underground rooms. After arriving to our room, I was very disappointed and immediately called to ask if we could stay in a different room. On the phone, the hotel team member said they were completely booked and there was nothing she could do. I understand the problem with the hotel being completely booked- however, she had a variety of other options to try to help the problem, like offer breakfast vouchers or some other discount, but she just hung up. I filled out a survey after our stay and was contacted by a Hilton representative, which I greatly appreciated. We've put this behind us and have learned from experience, but I wanted to provide a warning because I wouldn't have stayed here had I known which room we would be given. As a side note, there were not enough spots in the parking lot to accommodate all guests. We were able to park on the curb which was fine, but just wanted to add a note that it could potentially be improved. Also, we were told we'd receive a shell lei greeting - we didn't. I had to ask for the leis after being there for a few hours. If I could do it again... I would stay at Kauai Shores (for a budget property) or at the Marriott in Kalapaki (if we wanted to splurge). The Marriott is on a beautiful beach and has restaurants, rentals, and shopping nearby. I'm a Hilton Honors member but after sleeping in a dungeon and seeing the Marriott property/location, it was an easy decision as to where we'd stay next time. The Hilton is completely isolated, so it depends on what you want out of your trip. I would advise Hilton to change these underground rooms into the storage closets they were meant to be and provide their guests with the rooms they advertise.

On our first ever trip to Hawaii we started out on the island of Kauai and chose the Hilton Garden Inn for our stay. It's clearly an older property, but one that has been nicely cared for. The room was a good size, so was the oddly shaped bathroom a good size. This HGI is setup very much like an outdoor resort type place where the lobby, restaurant/bar area and room hallways are not completely enclosed but leads you to really feel like it's a very nice resort location. On our stay the nearby beach was unusable due to all of the driftwood, but we could clearly see how it would be quite nice if it was usable. There are many nice things included with the dreaded resort fees that include the nightly Mai Tais, bike rental and shell Lais. We highly suggest taking the bike rental, it was one of the best ways we found to see some very beautiful scenery along the east coast of Kauai. The location of this property is great for those who will be doing the Smith's Family Luau as it is literally under 5 minutes away. Only negative, parking... the parking situation isn't great for those who are renting a car, but based on the location I don't think there is much of an improvement that can be made, but every evening we had to park in the far lot and quite a ways down that each night we had a decent walk back to our room.

Great Place

We are very pleased with this establishment. Upon arrival the checkin process was quick and seamless. Due to Hilton agonies membership we had our resort fees waived. We got free nightly Mai Thais also. The property is beautiful. We got a free upgrade, my guess is due to the high Hilton points I have & using Amex Hilton to pay for room. The larger rooms near the park are definitely the way to go. The location is great.

Many perks like resort fees waved, free mai tais, free bike rental... place is comfy and staff is friendly. No bar at the pool was my only complaint. Rooms sometimes were humid. Food was good but at times a lot of flies in restaurant/ bar.

Kauai trip.

The property itself is nice, though the Diamond member parking is a little unique, having to drive on dirt to get there. Location of pools is lacking but the room we had was great, the staff very helpful and friendly. However, I got the Eggs Benedict special one morning and I was only given one Egg Benedict, not two. Odd, but as it was in addition to the buffet, I was not going to complain as I was using points for our entire stay.
