A great location and nice place to stay”

We really enjoyed our stay at Kauai Shores. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and the adjacent Lava Lava Beach Club is great. The room was very clean and all staff were extremely helpful. A shopping center right by the hotel was convenient also. One complaint: upon arrival, we were charged $84 for valet parking (didn't use it), pool/beach towel (we didn't use the pool or the towels), beach bicycles (didn't use), and some other incidentals we didn't use either. No option, we had to pay it without any notice beforehand. Seems like the price should have been included when we made the reservation, not when we arrived.

Right on the beach ”

Great location right by wailua and kapa'a. Your random and mandatory hospitality fee goes to free DVD rentals. There's a farmers market in the parking lot next door on tuesdays. Go north on Kuhio highway to Wailua shave ice for one of the best shave ice experience. We heard Tege Tege shave ice is great too but it was closed for the season when we were there.

Plenty of amenities for a comfortable stay”

While this hotel turned out to be more of a refurbished motel on the beach, the staff is very helpful, and I had everything I needed to be comfortable. Right on the beach, with a decent restaurant attached, there are also movie rentals in the lobby which come with the room, and the staff helped me do things like arrange taxis at odd hours. There are shops close by for sundries, such as an ABC store at the end of the driveway, and even a laundry for guests. I thought it was a pretty good value for the money, and I would stay there again if I return to Kauai.

Not worth the price ”

The place is like an old bldg which was just repainted. The furnitures and bathroom are dated. The only good thing is it is beach front and is near the Wailua center where there are restaurants to choose from. The bed is also comfortable, clean and made up daily. Still overall, not worth the high price.

Basic hotel for short-stay in Lihue, Kapaa area”

It's cheap and convenient plus the blue shag carpeting keeps me coming back

The Kauai Sands is an older hotel, pretty basic with a pool and ocean front location. Staff is friendly, hotel is clean if need of some updating, see shag carpeting comments in "pros" section, but a good location as a home base to see Kauai at a reasonable cost. They recently started to charge US$8 for parking, at least on this booking, which I found annoying. If you're after a basic budget hotel from which to explore Kauai, this works. Kauai is small island, at least by US standards so you're really not to far from anything.

Great location, service lacking”

Awesome location right on beach

Our stay at the Kauai Sands Hotel was somewhat an accident--- booked our return flight a day later than our condo checkout date, so we had to find an alternate, one night stay hotel. Kauai sands was the least expensive option we found and it was located somewhat close to the airport for our return flight. Only drawback we had with our stay was the attitude the front desk staff portrayed when asked simple questions. They seemed put off by these questions as if they didn't want to be bothered. This was the only drawback we saw during our one night stay.

Perfect little get away”

Lovely hotel, reminded me of a 70's motel, but nicely updated. Great location. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. One of the pool's was closed while I was there, but really the pools are small and utilitarian anyway and who would go to Hawaii to sit by a pool, when there is a stunning beach steps away! Nothing better than sitting with your toes in the sand at breakfast, planning for a day of sightseeing or better yet, lounging on the beach!

Great location ”

The room they have reserved for us was at the very end of the hotel looking at the dumpsters , Nothing like the pictures of the room that we have reserved “the Delux Garden view,”so we had to upgrade to a room looking at the garden with the pool, nobody wants to spend their holiday in Hawaii looking at the dumpsters from the balcony. My feeling is that since the reservation was not done directly with the hotel, they try to keep the better rooms for their direct customers. Other than that the hotel the surroundings the gardens ,lava lava Beach bar the ambience was all very nice.Other than that the hotel the surroundings the gardens, the lava lava Beach bar ,the ambience was very nice

It was Okay”

Generally, it was okay. But there was noise from cars when they go through certain point in the parking space(our room was just in front of the parking space). There must be something on the ground to slow down cars when they go through that point. That made irregular noise and we woke up in the dawn several times. Everything else was fine. Maybe it would be better if the room is far from the parking space.

Fun and lively resort ”

We loved our room. It was quiet and we were happy about that. The resort is very nice and we enjoyed the restaurant and the jacuzzi. The staff was nice albeit a little indifferent and detached from a sincere and personal interaction with customers. The bed was comfortable but the maid service was a bit slack. The bed was a bit sloppily made and the bath products were never refurbished during our entire stay even though we asked for more soap. The restaurant food was excellent! The evening entertainment lively and friendly and all around a good experience. We never had a problem with parking either.
