                      No restaurant. No internet access included in the rate. Very smelly bathroom. Extremely noisy shower.

                      7.8

                      Kauai Sands has been our hotel of choice on Kauai for a number of years for the kamaaina--front desk staff always in the spirit of aloha.

                      I was very disappointed to learn the property will be changed/renovated for time share. Are there really rooms with a mountain view?

                    • Single
                      8.2

                      Comfortable and clean accomodation with friendly service. It was good value and I extended my stay.

                      Although there is no food at the hotel ( apart from a small shop ), the Coconut Plaza a short walk away has shops and eateries. I recommend Eggberts for breakfast!

                      Exremely dirty. No shower curtain,Room not clean. 2 exterminator trucks at the front of hoel killing bugs in all the rooms. Counter staff rude. We couldn't stay there the first night because of the conditins and they wouldn't refund the first night fee. Hoel and room was unlvfeable. Could you help me get refund of the room fee? Pleae respond.

                      It was good for the price

                      Pool towels were not always available and the ice machine on our floor was not working

                    • Single
                      8.2

                      It certainly was good value for money even though the amenities were very basic but for $50 night it's the best ocean front deal out there.

                      6.6

                      Nice location, just on the beach. It may be strong waves in the Ocean

                      It's a lot of mosquitos (or some other bugs) in the room and around the hotel.

                      5.8

                      This is an older property that is past it's prime and needs serious updating. I would not stay there again. It does have a great beach-side location.

                      This property is in a great location but is worn and in serious need of renovation.

                      Amazing value for being right on the beach, maybe the best in the country!

                    • Couple
                      7.8

                      We first found this hotel by walking in, rented an ocean view room for three nights at about $100/nt. After we decided to extend our stay and found this great $55/nt offer on Booked.net; we only had to move withing the same building to it's rear side, which had the pool view and we still could see a bit of ocean from our patio. The hotel is located right on the beach, it was amazing to wake up with the first rays of sun and the sound of waves! The hotel offers quite simple rooms, but you get great value for the money you pay! It's very quiet and relaxing, the staff is welcoming and the location(east of Kaua'i) allowed convenient transportation to the northern and southern parts of the island.

                      The only thing that was missing was the lack of a microwave in both rooms that we stayed in, unfortunately, they only have them in the building located in the back of the hotel property, which doesn't offer such amazing view. A couple of days later we found out that there's one by the reception desk in the main building, but it wasn't very convenient to use. However, it was just a small detail and we had a wonderful stay anyway!

                      The price. Nice view on the beach (can't swim there though).

                      The hotel seems abandoned for years. Far from everything. You need a car. Nothing to do around. No restaurant around, just take aways at coconut market.

                      6.2

                      Close to the beach for a nice sunrise.

                      "Mountain view" was of the parking lot. Very basic room: no clock, no hairdrier. Tv didn't work. Swimming pool appeared to be "under construction."

                      5.8

                      Nothing, bare bones, dated and cheap. Worse parking vs access to rooms ever encountered.

                      no ocean view, was close to rooms with view.
