Right on the beach!

Cheapest hotel on Kauai! Nice rooms, right next to the Coconut Marketplace (walking distance). Easy to get to, and located on a nice walkway leading to other hotels and restaurants. We liked the quiet atmosphere, but mostly the reasonable price of the rooms. Walk past the pool and you're at water's edge. We WILL go back!

Amazing Vacation!

My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the suites. It was super nice and right next to the back pool. Our room was stocked with everything we needed - frig, microwave, utensils, etc. The staff is always very nice and helpful. This was my fourth trip to Kauai Shores and I enjoy it every single time.

Very Impressed

We stayed here for 3 nights. We enjoyed the location, super views, walk to some shops or bike to shopping and bike the great trails. The room was clean and bright. I loved that I could just be so close to the beach. It was perfect for my family. The pool, the fire pits, the hot tub. and the use of the bikes, made for a perfect spot for us. I really enjoyed that it was not a high rise, I found the staff friendly and helpful. And the food at the Lava Lava beach club was very good with great size portions. If I were to go back I would definitely stay there and have told friends back here how great it was.

STAY HERE

My wife and I stayed here for our Kauai getaway and we loved everything about it. The location is great, the hotel was awesome, and the Lava Lava Club was awesome. We enjoyed everything that at the hotel from the room, pool, beach access, complimentary valet parking, and pool.

Great Location with Poor Service

During our vacation we stayed here two different times and were overall satisfied with the property. Price: The price was really great considering the hotel is right on the beach and it is Kauai. Rooms: We stayed in two different rooms and one was great (updated), while the other one was not. Our first room was the closest to the beach and on the first floor, which was nice but the room was in bad shape. The second room was on the second floor and away from the beach and was much cleaner, larger and updated. Consistency would be nice. Customer Service: This hotel could use some serious customer service training, it was all over the place. Some employees were great, while most employees didn't care and had a bad attitude. Unfortunately, the worse service we received and saw during our stay was from senior employee or manager (Clarisa?). Location: Great location in Kapaa, fairly close to everything in town. We were very impressed with the hotel being right on the beach. Amenities: Our favorite amenities at this hotel were the pool, hot tub, beach cruiser bikes and of course the beach. The restaurant was also pretty fun. If this hotel improved their customer service and created a consistent quality with the rooms, I would for sure rate them higher. Even with the bad stuff, it is still a great hotel due to the price and location.
