I stayed at this little place about a week. The staff is great. They visit with guests and try to help as much as they can. They seem to take a personal interest in the quality of the guests' visit to Kauai.
The location is wonderful too. It is in a residential neighborhood about 1/4 mile from an industrial harbor, but the surroundings were so peaceful that the industries quickly faded from view and memory. The water nearby adds to the setting's rejuvenating quality. The hotel is nestled by the foothills of some smaller cliffs.
The first floor rooms in at least one of the three, two-story buildings have little patios in back that look out on an expanse of lawn, flowers and trees.
The premises has a coin-op laundry and a continental breakfast of fruit, muffins, breads, juice, tea and coffee each morning. To my delight, there is 24-hour tea, coffee and cookies available in the courtyard.
There is a small pool and parking in back.
This small older place is not fancy and a wee bit funky. It is tucked away from the glitz blitz and crazed commericialism encroaching Lihue's main thoroughfares. With a little TLC from an engineer/custodian, the hotel would be a total gem. Doors stick, there is an occasional problem with plumbing and not all rooms have phones. I hope that the owners will invest just enough money to fix these and any other functional problems on the property. It is sad to see such a lovely place with such fine staff suffer from upkeep problems that could easily be fixed.
