    So glad we chose to stay her. Beachfront property was a huge plus. We also appreciated the valet parking included with the resort fee. The rooms were clean and plenty of room. The location worked for us.

    Staff was very helpful and caring for our needs. The room was clean and was pleasant. We get got an ocean view room...that was sweet. At night there's fireplaces where you can sit and chill; get toasty. The beach is right in front. While we were there, the waters seemed a little rough so we ended up at salt pond beach...much better. The Lava Lava Beach Club was right on the hotel grounds. The food was...ok; drinks were A+ though. Service was a little slow, but servers were very nice. The coconut marketplace was next door so we did most of our eating there, and shopping. The general store at the marketplace is owned by ABC so you'll pay those prices. But there's coffee and food at 6:30 am =) Overall, very pleased with Kauai Shores. We're coming back for sure!

    Great week at Kauai Shores!

    We booked a 2 week/2 island trip for our 20th anniversary through Costco and stayed at Kauai Shores for the first week of our adventure. The location was perfect for being able to easily explore the whole island. We really enjoyed this hotel. Our room and the property were both clean and comfortable. The staff was polite, although we really didn't have a lot of interaction with them - there was no need for that. Being close to the Coconut Marketplace was wonderful. We walked there every morning to grab some coffee and a cheap breakfast. Having the Lava Lava Beach Club right there was nice as well. Great place to have a drink, but I thought their food was a little overpriced for what you got. This is not by any means a fancy hotel, but it was perfect for us and we would definitely return. As others mentioned, the parking stalls are quite narrow. We were always able to find an end spot so it wasn't a huge issue for us. We didn't use the valet parking so I can't comment on that.

    Great location, very friendly staff but there are some issues. This looks to be a very old hotel that they have done little to improve the rooms other than putting colorful paint on the walls. The bathrooms have a tiny sink with no vanity to put bathroom products on except for a little shelf that is barley hanging on the wall. Don’t get a room next to a walk way or the noise from people passing by will seem like they are actually in your room. There is not enough parking and if you do find a parking spot it will be so skinny you can’t get out of your car once parked. Again great location and fun things to do on property with a fun beach but the hotel itself needs to be improved and updated other than just new paint. Just seems very overpriced for such a old outdated room.
