Great location and super clean. It's a simple place though--no frills, which was great for me.

Room was fine. Maybe another lock on the door. Staff was very friendly and helpful

Personnel was very kind , smiling, helpful Clean and quiet

Not fancy or luxurious but has the basics, comfortable, quaint and quiet. Restaurant is awesome and staff is super friendly!

Nice facility, very clean, with a great location for the beach and airport.

not as shown in picture. Orbitz was not truthful and did not help

The best location with free wifi and minimal amenities just like Motel 6. If you're looking for a comfort or relax in a room, this is NOT for you. Also, Tip Top cafe is very popular, so especially in the AM, diners park in the motel parking lot.

A prison cell would be better! I left a day early😪

None maybe a pool area bigger should have a 24hour restaurant service

We had 10 hours from check-out at our resort with an 89 year old along. Too long to sleep in a rental car. This met our needs. Bed had a firm surface, plumbing worked, close to airport.

Came in late. Beds were comfy and left before cafe opened. Worked in our schedule perfect

Very friendly staff, motel is close to shopping,and has there own cafe and bakery. Will be back soon.

Place was clean, very basic amenites, bed, towels, t.v., what else do you need except a place to stay at night. Cafe next door and was busy with locals eating there.

I needed a lace to stay and I got the last available room. I was thankful the room was there. The hotel is close to shopping areas and the food in the cafe is delicios.

The property was exactly as the other reviews had described it. The room was very simple, basic and clean. The beds are VERY firm. Air conditioning is via a wall unit that was intermittent at times. There is potential for a bit of noise from outside of the rooms from louder guests, but all in all, it was pretty quiet while we were there for a multi night stay. The TV was a flat screen with a surprisingly large number of channels. Very friendly cleaning staff & front desk. The room is functional and affordable for travelers that are going to be spending most of their time out doing activities on the island, and essentially using it as a place to rest their heads. Great location, near the a number of restaurants, shops, the local Walmart, 5 minutes from the airport, and quick access to the roads to other parts of the island. As a side benefit, the on-site bakery/restaurant is fantastic, having won the Best of the Island award for 2017. It's packed for breakfast and dinner, with a heavy percentage of customers being locals, authenticating the establishment. We ate there multiple times, and affordable, quality food.

A very nice basic place to stay in Kauai for a great price. If you're looking for hula girls meeting you at the door and a luxury room, go to the Marriott, but if you want a clean bed to sleep in, this is your place. It was in a quiet somewhat residential neighborhood (no barking dogs) with a convenient cafe in the complex that seems to be a local favorite. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is totally a mom and pop operation, so don't expect anything fancy, there's no wifi or sitting area in the rooms, but after a long day of vacationing, I was just wanting a nice place to sleep with a clean bathroom and fresh sheets, and I got it.

it was a place to stay and more than meet my needs. the friendly staff, cleanliness and convenience is a reason i would stay again.
