Exceptional ➖ Nothing! ➕ Very courteous, friendly staff! Great location on Kauai in the middle between Ke’e Beach and Waimea Canyon on the opposite side. Makes it easy to go either direction for the day. They have bikes to use and you can go either direction, to Lydgate Park or the other way to the ocean sidewalk that is 6 miles long. We love that ride. We’ve stayed here 4 times now and don’t bother looking anywhere else because the price is right, staff is very accommodating and the hotel is older but clean. Right on the ocean! Has it’s own restaurant, The Lava Lava Beach Club, with nightly Hawaiian music. Coconut Market is right next door with Bobby V’s Italian Restaurant, which we have enjoyed several times. They also have free hula shows at the Coconut Market. Kauai Coffee 2 just opened at the Coconut Market, so you can enjoy some of the best coffee you will ever taste at that store! Starbucks is close, along with McDonald’s, Brick Oven Pizza, a grocery store, etc. all in Kapa’a. Traffic is heavy in Kapa’a, however, once you get through that small stretch of road the traffic thins out nicely. Honestly, we don’t spend much time at the hotel when we are on Kauai, not that the room is uncomfortable at all, but for the price and convenience it is great!!! Don’t miss the Kauai Coffee plantation and gift shop. It’s on 870 Halewili Rd, Kalaheo, HI 96741. Free coffee samples and I now never drink any other kind!!! They are on Amazon! You won’t be disappointed!!!

Pleasantly surprised

We stayed one night in this spot before our final destination spot (grand Hyatt) and we were pleasantly surprised. While we probably had the least desirable room location (lower level corner room right off the parking lot near the entrance gate) it was still a great little place. While the place itself on the outside seems like an old motel-style place, the room was nicely updated and spacious. Cute beachy feel with amazing amenities in the room including full-sized fridge and convection microwave. The room was stocked with all the utensils you would need to make meals in your room, which we would have utilized had we had a longer stay. Great way to have to avoid eating out for every meal...which gets expensive in Hawaii. This place had a nice beach area with lounge chairs provided. There was a yoga class on the morning we were there which was well attended. The location of the hotel was convenient with access to shopping areas and running trails. Would definitely recommend this place...great value for all it has to offer.

Great stay

This is an older property that has been updated and maintained well. We enjoyed the location with wonderful beach views. The water was very rough, but beautiful to watch, not so much to play in, which was perfect for my husband and me. The rooms were clean and nicely updated. I was nervous about the tone of the green from the pictures online, but when we arrived, it was just fine. Since it is an older property, the walls were a bit thin which made for extra noise, but we brought a small fan to help with white noise and it was great.
