Hours for check in on the day we stayed was shorter than what was listed. However staff left us a note for room with everything we needed. Gravely appreciated their forethought.

This is a perfect property for the active visitor. Very clean, updated shower, good mattress. Located a block from central nexus of kauai bus. If you are patient, you can get around without a car. They do have a couple of permanent residents who are eccentric, but friendly and respect quiet hours. If you dont need a resort, you can cut lodging cost in half and spend your dollars on experiences. Good breakfast, but get thete before 8 to beat the crowd.

If you're looking for something with no frills but very clean and reasonably priced this is it. It's absolutely plain in appearance but next door to one of the area's top local eatery. You're in luck.
