4/10 Fair

So disappointing
Room was described as a city view, but what that meant for us was right next to a busy highway. Walls are thin, and we could see light all around our entry door, so the traffic noise was constant, making it hard to sleep. The shower curtain was moldy, as were the shower tiles. The tile was coming off the wall next to the shower, the bathtub was rusting out, and the bottom of the tub was dingy. I didn’t sleep at all the first night, looking to see if we could find different accommodations, but realizing we’d have to forfeit 50% of what we’d already paid. So we sucked it up & stayed. The bed was horrible! The mattress was like sleeping in a hard shell taco, dipped in the middle. And the frame was loose, and any little movement caused it to squeak. Think twice before you book a room here!

This is a very nice hotel along the beach. We had a great ocean view. Convenient location to other parts of the island. We would stay here again. Staff was very friendly.

Mixed review
I picked this hotel for location and ocean view since we were only in Kauai for a few nights. That part is great- nice boardwalk with bikes available and patio with ocean view. It was also in an area easily walkable to shops and restaurants. Since we packed a lot in the few days on order to see and experience the island, we didn’t use any of those things. The room was below my expectations, though more recent reviews reflected our experience on first floor room. Bathrooms seemed clean but rest dingy and dusty, with worn carpet areas and outlets that were cracked. We came home the last night, closed the door and a cockroach scrambled out from behind the door. It seemed it could have come through the crack of the door when we opened it but I don’t know. My husband thought the room was fine but I couldn’t relax in it as I felt like I’d see bugs.

Ocean view room could be better.
Our room had dirty walls, dead cockroach, and a filty broken bathtub. The bed was lumpy and the ac only worked spordically i would compare this to a super 8 with an ocean view.

Support Local
We were only here for two nights, but were so impressed by the friendly staff, and the views, that we have decided to come back for at least a week next time! We much preferred the local vibe of a small independent hotel over the soulless feel of some of the large resorts. Can’t wait to come back!
