Mahalo for your feedback!

The location is excellent, the grounds are beautiful, but the rooms need to be updated! I really like the mid-century/modern vibe going on at the hotel and in the rooms, but overall the rooms need some TLC. I noticed some sliding glass doors being replaced in a section of rooms, but ours was old and didn't work/lock well. The carpets felt old and dirty under my bare feet and I tried to always wear shoes to counter that feeling. The worst part was the bathroom. It left little in the way of a retreat. The bathroom tub handles did not work properly and the water temp. never stayed warm, it either got VERY hot or cold. Every room also desperately needs a microwave. I would give the hotel an A+ on the outside and location, but a C for the room.

We loved the fact that we didn't have to walk more than 150 feet and the ocean was right there. Lounge chairs already on the sand, multiple swim pools that were not crowded, the wonderful outside restaurant with the live Hawaiian music and hula girl, the fire pits at night and tikki torches,loved the lawn games set up for use, loved the quiet little sitting area outside our room, loved being able to walk to the little shopping center that had a farmer's market twice a week. We were impressed on what a good buy the hotel is. We expected much much less for our money and were so delighted. The facilities are well kept and very clean. Loved the check in with the swim towels and the shell leis. The flowers everywhere were beautiful. We would come back here in a heartbeat!

This was the perfect location!! This is considered the east side of the island we were literally 10-15 min away from everything including smiths lua, Wailua falls, backcountry adventures. Not to mention several food places and coconut marketplace. The room was as expected, looked just like the pictures. We had a king bed with lots of pillows. Made for a great sleep after 10hr flight. Staff was friendly and helpful. They offer waterproof bracelets instead of room keys which was awesome one less thing you have to worry about. Room service was on it, by 10am they start cleaning. Lava Lava beach club was cool but a little pricey (but then again you are on vacay) I do recommend the pineapple ciders so refreshing!! There are two pools on site and a jacuzzi but don’t forget you have access to the beach right from your hotel. We actually rented snorkel gear from snorkel bobs and snorkeled right in front of our hotel. Water conditions were great at the time. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone during heavy wave conditions or are not great swimmers only because there is no lifeguard on duty. Which the hotel provided warning signs! Parking is not as bad as everyone makes it seem. The slots are small but we had no problems finding parking. Thanks for an amazing stay Kauai Shores we would definitely stay at this hotel again :)

This was my first time to Kauai and after staying at this hotel it certainly won’t be my last! The rooms are far from fancy, but they are clean and roomy. The grounds are the true selling point! You have two heated pools a hot tub and of course the beach with it’s magnificent ocean is just steps from your room! This is now my mainstay for any and all future visits the the island.

Parking sucked at night. It's mostly because other people can't park straight, but there is valet to accommodate guests until 1130 PM. The guys were very nice. Room was cute. Need a bigger fridge though. Housekeeping was good. Came in and cleaned every day unless you put that do not disturb sign, but ours went missing the 3rd day. Never got a new one... But I love the location. Right on the beach and close to the market. Lava lava beach club and bar is right there too. Very convenient. I would come again in the future.

Hotel = 7/10 Ballistic Missile Warning =?!

Beds are very firm, small sink area, nice pool area, good beach area with dining and bar areas on the sand. Other than the unique missile warning / false alarm, very relaxing venue and good value hotel.
