We stayed here for four nights in May. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about area sites and hikes. Staying in the town of Kapa'a is a great choice. You are relatively close to the north and south shores and the airport too. (The west side/canyon is a bit of a hike). Kauai is more remote than other islands and we were pleased to find that we were in a small little town--quaint with a TON of great dining options, all in walking distance.
Something else wonderful about the location…you are right on the beach! We had a lovely view of the water and the hotel pool right from our balcony.
The room was tidy and had some nice upgrades, although it lacked others. It felt a bit outdated in places, but it has a family-run feeling to it. Don't expect a five-star resort. But if you are looking for a place on the beach on the coconut coast, this is a great value. (As part of a deal on their site, we got one night free, which helped.)
Visit the local coffee shop across the road, and Kountry Kitchen for enormous portions of delicious breakfast fare.
