    Good Hotel, Too Bad About the Traffic
    A reasonable choice for a hotel on the Coconut Coast. The staff are friendly and the room was comfortable. The bathroom sink was tucked into a corner (so a bit tight) but other than that no complaints about the room. Getting into and out of the hotel was really difficult at certain times of the day though (the highway gets clogged). Too many cars on Kauai, and not enough road.

    a great stopover when you're catching a red-eye flight back to Canada. We'd do it again.

    All you would want for a nice vacation stay!
    We had a lovely one-night stay before leaving from Hawaii. If we had more time, we would have stayed longer it split our vacation with a few nights here, and left the condo we rented. Checking in was super pleasant, the staff kind, accommodating and welcoming. The beds are comfy, rooms clean and balcony privacy a plus. Beach towels are offered for free with lounge chairs in beach. The beachfront restaurant has a wonderful setting, fun music, great service with good food. We have no complaints... of and free morning yoga on the beach with complimentary bikes is an awesome add-on.

    Very reasonable, good place to stay
    This is a good, reasonably priced hotel, central to everywhere on the island. The service was excellent, all of the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was kept clean, as well as all of the common areas were being cleaned all the time. It seemed that as sand was being tracked in, the staff were busy vacuuming the entry and staircases. The only downside to the hotel was that there are no elevators. But, a person could ask for a ground floor unit if elevators are necessary.

    Love it!
    Cute hotel with a beach front restaurant. The staff is excellent, super friendly and accommodating (let us check out 2 hours later than normal check out time). The beach and pool are nice, perfect sunrise spot. Rooms are clean and a good size. Hallways feel a little dated but adds to the charm of the place. All in all a great place to stay, would do it again!!

    Martin, ca1 night trip
    Very Good 8.0
    Good overall but with one major issue.
    The Good: - Loved the location in that it was right on the beach - great for watching the sunrise or taking a walk. - The restaurant (Lava Lava Beach Club) was generally quite good with live music, friendly servers, and decent food. - Free bike rentals was a nice perk - Beach towel service was amazing - loved how simple exchanging for new towels was. - Internet (WiFi) was fast and had a good strong signal with no issues using it while lounging at the beach. - The beach had loungers available for use. - The fire pit and hot tub were a nice touch for when it gets chilly at night. The Bad: - Rooms are clean, but a bit dated - especially the washrooms, and our patio door didn't work, so couldn't use the balcony - For the showers, water pressure was okay, but flow is quite low, so showering cleanly takes a while. - Our air conditioning remote was non-responsive at times, meaning we couldn't change the temp sometimes. - Toilets are very very weak to flush and seem to want to clog all the time. The Ugly: - For rooms on the north property line, you're facing a club called Trees Lounge that plays loud music well into the night (12:30am). It's loud enough that sometimes your windows will rattle. We called front desk several times and they said they couldn't do anything about it. My advice if you stay here is, avoid any rooms along the north property line, or go somewhere else if you're a light sleeper and want to start your days early.

    They little as far as comfort.
    Wow! $300 for sweet #%!? all. Don’t expect much here, no ice, no pop machine, there was some water on at the front desk but that was about it. Very old, but seems kept up.

    Good Short stop.
    It us good for a one night stop on the way to your final destination. Room is older and backed into a parking lot. Staff is great but would not stay longer than a night.
