We booked this hotel last-minute at maybe 8 or 9pm after missing the last inter-island flight to Oahu. The staff was friendly, the price was reasonable, and the room was clean. The room we booked was just for 2. The bathroom was small but it wasn't too bad. I didn't sleep well due to the (wild?) roosters making noise all...

Unlike other reviewers, we had a large room and a large bathroom with tub (room 23). Strangely, there were 3 beds (for two people!) and a table with four chairs, plus a full kitchen - but the chairs were wooden and uncomfortable, and there was no couch or comfortable place to sit. We were able to borrow a hairdryer from...

We weren't sure when we first drove up but upon closer inspection this hotel was very nice and clean. Older style and smaller rooms but perfect if your planning on actually seeing Kauai and not sitting around a hotel all day- not to mention the manager (I'm guessing) was incredibly helpful and VERY friendly! Felt like we were guests in...

Ours was room #7.....small room and an older hotel, but relatively clean. No breakfast. Coffee only. Only one person in the bathroom at a time..small. However, the manager and her suggestions kind of made our visit in Kauai. She was delightful!!!! Can't beat the price, for sure. Bring your own hair dryer, though....there was none. I asked, specifically, for the...

Nice basic hotel. The rooms are small, but very clean and nicely decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Good location. Free Wi-Fi. There is a luggage storage room if you need to check out before your flight time.

During August 2012, I went to Kauai last minute to meet up with my at the time boyfriend who is in the navy. My flight kept getting delayed (I went through Go! Airlines and they delayed my flights every time I used them!) So I didn't actually get to Kauai until almost 9PM without anywhere to stay, my boyfriend wasn't...

So, when I found the hotel on the net, I was nicely surprised that you can book specific room. As we were staying there last 2 nights before night on the plane, I wanted nice big bed. So I booked room #28 which is described as LARGE room with KING size bed, air condition and mini fridge. At the time...

Aloha and Mahalo for your thoughts. I did review your reservation and found that we did upgrade your room to accommodate your concerns for the groceries that you would be bringing with you. When ever possible we try to give our guests the items they may need or provide what we can to make their hotel stay more comfortable, sort...

I stayed there for one night. It was a last-minute-decision but definitely a good one. The room was clean and had everything you need for a good start into the day - coffee and tea. It was good placed to get to the bus for my trip and it was near the airport. The lady at the reception was really...

A very pleasant little hotel that has a great, unique style in the rooms. After staying in a number of different places in Hawaii it was refreshing to see a place that has maintained some character and was quite charming. Very comfortable and simple, is a perfect place to stay in this area and is good value for Hawaii where...
