Paradise value

The rooms are very spacious, have mini kitchens and are well maintained. Free parking some of which is covered. It has beech frontage although it is on the windward side so the surf is rough and the beach is steeply sloping, but it seems many in kauai are

An excellent hotel on the beach

Pros: The quiet peaceful nature of the hotel, the locale of the hotel great for being able to see all the island and staff & security.
Cons: More thorough cleaning of the floors and counters overall and especially daily.
Location: Souvenir and Kauai made shopping within walking distance, great beach for swimming & suntanning right out your door, Luau, Sleeping Giant Hike,
This hotel was priced reasonably, had the service and comfort levels of a larger resort and the atmosphere of relaxation and comfort and fun. The room was more than adequate for two people, with a very comfortable bed. The ammenities were good: daily newspapers, coupons for coffee or mango lemonade daily, good size pool and poolside area, Sand bar very relaxing, DVD Rentals, beach towels and free parking, microwave, plates, glasses and silverware, and great in room coffee machine. Shopping, and a wide variety of restaurants within walking distance. Easy access to the highways and activities in the area. A quiet and enjoyable resort. We were very pleased with our choice. Our room had a great view of the sunrise each day. Right on the beach and just feet from our room. I would chose this hotel again. The overall cleanliness of the room (floors and daily counter space cleanup) was not perfect but adequate.

Pleasant Stay

The hotel is in a convenient location within twenty minutes from the Kauai airport. It is on the beach near other motels, restaurants and other establishments. The room was clean and was set up with basic condo items such as a small refrigerator, microwave and dishes. There was a coin operated laundry and movie rental available. The front desk staff and concierge were helpful during our four day stay.

Our first trip to Kauai, Hawaii

Expected turbulent weather due to recent hurricanes but turned out to be as perfect as one could ever imagine. Blue skies, warm weather and beautiful scenery. The hotel was great, a little dated but very well maintained. Great amenities, mini kitchen, free DVD rental, dinning coupons, perfectly centered on the island for quick excursions. I would not hesitate to stay at the IOB again.

The best place we stayed!

Pros: It was a very nice and comfortable room. The location was good. It felt like a friendly place, but not an overly-crowded place.
We had an extended vacation, and we liked this hotel best. It was safe, friendly, clean, roomy and close to things to do. A very relaxing and beautiful place.

Pros: View of ocean
Cons: A LOT
Location: Lots to do.
We arrived expecting so much more. Reception desk was under construction. Bed had deep divets. Room was "worn". Floor was sticky. Only thing that looked like online pics was pool. No elevators (3 floors), ice machines in only 2 of the approx 10 buildings.

Nice hotel close to beach.

Pros: Proximity to beach.
Cons: Could not get dvd or our computer to work in this unit.
Location: Right at beach and close to shops and town.
Ocean front room was very nice. Air conditioning was nice to have, but didn't always seem to work well enough. Otherwise, very comfortable and would recommend.
