Stayed 4 nights mid July with 13 yr old son. Super friendly and customer-focused staff. 5 min walk to a variety of stores and a few restaurants (visited ABC convenience store and Duke's restaurant during stay). Also nice beach just across street - good place to chill. Used hotel as "HQ" as I toured Kauai. Good location - as it's mid point between opposing ends of island sights. Also very convenient to airport (5-7 min drive).
Hotel provides baked goods snacks (cookies/pie, mini scones/muffins from Costco) in their office throughout day. Basic appliances in room featuring kitchenette (frig, MW). Office provides all kinds of beach gear on an "honor" system - boogie boards, fold up beach chairs, noodles, coolers, snorkeling equipment - even aleo vera lotion and bug spray (!!). Stayed in room 12 (2nd floor) - which had 2 twin beds.
Excellent value hotel - but not opulent if that's what you're looking for. 4 star rating based on several relatively small items: foam vs. feather pillows (sorry but foam pillows don't cut it), room A/C was maxed out and could've been cooler (small A/C window unit) and small twin bed size. This warranted 3 star 'sleep' rating. Would stay here again if I was traveling just by myself - but would choose higher end resort if I was with family/gal. Good wifi signal in room. Note: hotel doesn't have pool.
