Well run and pleasant

by Griff W

This is an older and quite large two-story hotel on the beachfront. It is very well maintained and a great bargain, IMHO. Rooms are air conditioned (not a given n Kauai), and there are two pools. Employees are really great. All in all, a good bargain choice.

No inforcment of Hawaii's ADA laws.

I am disabled and need a handicapped spot close to my room . This hotel will not enforce other visitors using the handicapped stalls . Tried to use them and found cars not with the signage parking their I complained to no avail. I have multiple pictures showing this abuse . Going to send to the state of Hawaii . If you are handicapped this is not the place to be
