We were winging the room thing in Kauai and found his hotel on Expedia, price was right for a newly renovated room, the decor was stylish and having a brand new kitchen with the eating bar and stainless steel appliances was a bonus. The pool was quaint but very well kept and a pleasure to swim and suntan (very private). We were pretty much the only guest staying a the 52 unit hotel the reason being is the other half of the hotel is under construction and this is probably deterring other guest. We were gone most of the days so constructions wasn't a problem for us and with not many guest around we pretty much had our own little Paradise. When we return to Kauai we will definitely re-booked in the other phase which will be on the ocean view side.

This is a great little hotel at a great price. It is basic and a little old fashion, but it delivered on all the things that are important to me: spotlessly clean, comfortable, great water pressure, somewhere to sit (other than the bed), a great view (and every room has a balcony), the hotel and surrounding area felt safe, and excellent location overall (there are two grocery stores, and multiple coffee shops and restaurants within a 5 minutes walk). The rooms have a good sized mini-fridge, a proper full-size coffee maker all the basic kitchenware you could possibly need (cutlery, plates, glasses even wines glasses and a corkscrew), but there is no place to cook in the room (there is a communal bbq outside)
Some of the limitations of this hotel are the following (none of these things bothered me, but for the purposes of a review, they could be deal-breakers for other people, so I'll include them.) There is no a/c, no tv and no phone. The ocean right in front of the hotel is rocky and not appropriate for swimming. Noise carries a bit from the hallway - if you are a light sleeper I wouldn't recommend staying on the first floor. The hotel isn't modern - e. g. the bathroom fixtures could use updating - but if you really care about bathroom fixtures you shouldn't be looking at a 2-star class hotel.
If you're vacation hotel priorities are "clean, comfy and good location" this is the place for you.
