Hotel that has it all

Would recommend Thu, Sep 18, 2014
My Mother and I visited Lani Kai this September and we were pleased with our experience. They have everything you will need right there and do not have to venture out for anything. The only thing we did not like was the gift shop that sold many explicit items and was definitely geared towards partiers. (Not fit for my 71 year old mother). The constant music and dj on microphone grew tiresome when we tried to sleep. Overall we would go back.

Okay Stay for the Price

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
The price we paid for a week was a deal compared to some of the other hotels nearby. This place just needs some TLC and it could be an amazing hotel. PROS: -Location: this hotel is in a great location for those who want to walk to the pier, time-square (shops), restaurants,etc. We only drove once or twice the whole week and that was to drive over the bridge (which is two minutes from hotel) to try restaurants on the bay. -View: Every room at this hotel has a balcony. We had a view of the pier, sunset, and activities going on down at the beach, which I thought was great. -Beach: It was a really enjoyable experience on their beach. Everyday, they had nice music playing, activities to win prizes, and servers to provide drinks (if your are willing to pay). They scraped they beach every morning as well, so the sand would be litter free. CONS -Parking: This hotel has a restaurant and books memorial services and weddings, so the guest often times, do not have parking. During our stay we were forced to park our car a few times at another hotel that was located an annoying walk across and down the street. We were told that we were lucky we were staying just as the season had died off, otherwise it would have been even worse. They also sell their parking spots to tourist during the day, so parking is very limited at all times. -Elevator: Probably the worst experience I have every had with an elevator. Every time I got on the elevator, other guest were complaining. It does not have any air, so it is one of the hottest elevators I have ever been on, which wouldn't been the end of the world if they elevator was quick, or in my opinion worked properly. At one point, the elevator had six people in it, was shifting slightly up and down and would not close the door, which was my cue to get off. They need better/new elevators especially since the elevator is moving a lot of people at all times. -Our room: I had my fingers crossed after booking the hotel, because as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for". Our room was okay, I would say we got lucky to be on the very top floor to buffer out some of the music playing at the bar on the ground floor of the hotel. For those people of the first floor (located directly above the bar) I could not imagine that they were able to sleep Friday-Sunday. The door to our room was probably one of the creepiest parts to our stay. It is not the typical heavy doors that close, but rather a shallow wooden door with a huge gap between the door frame and door. The door was so thin, we could hear whispers outside our doors. The room did have some amazing air conditioning, which is good because the seals on the balcony doors let in a great deal of heat (closing the curtains, also helped significantly to keep heat out). I would say the housekeepers do a rather mediocre job at cleaning, my boyfriend and I did not go barefoot on the floors and I wiped down everything with Clorox wipes, because the place did not feel clean (but I guess that's my own standards of clean). The hotel seems to be renovating, as you will hear construction at about 9:00 am (wasn't a problem for us, because we were usually out the door by then) and maybe that will help give the hotel a better name (boy did the locals tell us some stories and give us funny looks when we told them were we were staying). Like I said this place really has the potential to be an amazing hotel. It has a perfect location, just needs some tlc and better cleaning standards.

average place to stay

Would recommend Thu, Jul 24, 2014
Since it was built in the 70's and doesn't look like any cosmetic money has been put into it, a lot of priming is needed.

Dining

The room itself was good, the building just needs work.

love the Lani!

Would recommend Sat, Jul 12, 2014
Love the location...walking distance to everything. Rooms and common areas really need updating....excited to see the renovations! Love the Sunday reggae band on the beach! The shrimp at happy hour are amazing!!! Also had the $5 ceviche happy hour special and it was delicious! Could use a little more variety on happy hour menu for non seafood lovers. The banana boat ride was fun and exciting! Take a drive over to Sunset Beach on Captiva Island one evening.

Dining

Pizza at Nemos On the Beach was yummy...

horrible

Would not recommend Thu, Jul 10, 2014
Manager gave attitude, hotel guests next room over were loud and were smoking pot and could smell it coming into our room, railing on balcony rusty and un-sterdy felt shaky, fridge was leaking all over floor, neither hotel nor or bitz would provide discount stay or anything besides free drinks at the hotel. Horrible stay. Glad to be away.

Three Day Getaway

Would recommend Sun, Jun 22, 2014
The first day was perfect! Great amenities, everything is right there! Don't have to get in your car for anything if you don't want to. Parking could be better...we were not wanting to give up our parking space for fear we would not get another one. We ate at the Island View Restaurant on the premises and it was absolutely fantastic! Great ambience and view, wonderful service and food was absolutely delicious! Only bad experience was on the second day....we took family into the Islandview restaurant because it was so good the first nite. It was a disaster! We waited an hour for our food! My husband ordered the prime rib the nite before, it was so fantastic that our daughter-in-law and I ordered it this time. We ordered rare and got medium well. The carrots and potatoes on top of it were under-cooked and hard! Hers was so fatty thru-out the whole thing.The waiter was in-experienced and as he put down the first plate on the table, all the plates slid to one side and the juice from the prime rib went onto the table and just missed our 2 yr old grandson! The chef came out and apologized for the hour wait..said he had 2 huge parties and got behind, and our dishes were not paid attention to because of theat so they were not cooked correctly. The place was not even 1/2 full!! My husband had lobster ravioli and had diarreah all nite! My son-in-laws fish dish was just ok! We raved about it to our family and were sorry we went there! They compt us our meals but it doesn't make up for the bad experience! The resort itself is pretty good for the money..they are renovating to make it better. Beautiful views, great beach! Would recommend it..but would explain the negatives and what to expect.

Entertainment hint

Always live music going on, you can hear it from the beach!

mini getaway

Would recommend Fri, Jun 13, 2014
for a mini getaway, this hotel is a good choice. the rooms were aa clean as a beachfront hotel could be. location is as good as it gets. it's only four blocks away from the pier so you don't have to worry about parking. it's close to a lot of the small restaurants so there's a lot of choices for dining. it's only a short car ride away from the city where there are even more choices for dining. staff is friendly and overall it's a good atmosphere. only downside was there was construction going on in some of the rooms so the noise was annoying.
