One of Kauai’s Best Places to Stay
The staff are very attentive, warm, welcoming and full of Aloha. Coffee, creamer and flavor syrups are available 24/7. Beach equipment are available to borrow, and so many more amenities are extended to guests. Excellent place to stay!

Nice, old Hawaii property.
Very comfortable and charming place to stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast by the pool was sufficient for the two of us. We had oatmeal and coffee. I didn’t see any fruit or yogurt. Our room was on the second level and that meant hauling suitcases up. This normally is not an issue, but I’m having some knee problems and my husband is having some back pain. Folks with mobility concerns should request a first floor room. Nothing fancy about this place, but it has a lovely location and the feeling of old Hawaii is a great way to start a vacation.

On the fence
It was quaint and the area was pretty and the grounds were very nice. But I am not a fan of a common area only for my morning coffee and the tv only had roku and nothing else and the wifi was unavailable so as a hard day on the road working, I was stuck in a room without much to do to relax afterwards.

Great, more affordable option in Lihue
Great place, we stayed just for one night to be closer to the airport but we loved it. It is an older property but very well cared for and the staff was wonderful. I would definitely stay again

Good price but there is a reason for it.
Very close to the airport and priced well. The rooms are very dated. Our tv didn’t work and there is no phone in the room to call the office. We already made one trip to the office so we just went without the tv for the evening. We were only staying for the night so it was ok. The roosters are another story. I read a previous review about a rooster and thought it would be fine if a rooster woke us at 6 am…. I was wrong. Try 6 roosters and starting at 4 am. I would not have been able to stay for more than a night.
