About Kauai Shores Hotel

Overlooking the beautiful beach, the Kauai Shores Hotel offers a sunny paradise in the tranquil Hawaiian island of Kauai. It sits right on the shore, but also has two outdoor swimming pools and a sun deck.

Using bright, island-themed décor, the rooms merge tropical motif with modernity as all rooms have free Wi-Fi, LCD HDTVs and coffee machine. Rooms range from standards to suites, with air conditioning, ceiling fans, and showers.

The daily hospitality fee includes access to daily morning yoga classes which take place outside, as well as the use of beach loungers and towels for the beach and pool.

The Lava Lava Beach Club, which practices a farm-to-beach philosophy, serves local island favorites including fried rice bowls and a variety of pizzas.

Kauai Shores Hotel is located near hiking routes and the famous Na Pali coastline. The Lihue Airport is located just over six miles away.

Positive Reviews

Good value for Hawaii

If you're looking for a no-frills hotel in Kauai at an affordable price, this is a good bet. You won't find luxurious amenities, but you also won't be paying the kind of prices that Hawaiian resorts charge. Guests noted that it's a cheap price for the location.

Great hotel restaurant

The onsite Lava Lava Club is popular amongst the hotel guests. They praised its diverse menu and choice of appetizers. They liked the convenience, the taste and its oceanside view.

Beautiful beach view

The hotel is right on the beach. You can't beat the convenience nor the splendor of waking up every morning to an ocean view, visitors said.

Negative Reviews

Rude hotel service

Several guests commented that the front desk was terribly rude and unpleasant. They noted that their attitude was as if they couldn't be bothered. As one guest stated: “There was no aloha spirit in the employees.”

Too noisy all around

Another chief complaint amongst guests was that you could overhear lots of noise from the other hotel rooms. Some visitors said the walls were paper-thin and the slat-style windows allowed a lot of noise in. This noise complaint also extended to the air conditioning system, which many said was too loud.

It's not well-maintained

The room was not cleaned daily and the entire hotel needed better care and attention, guests complained. They also said that the pools were filthy that they didn't want to swim in it, and that it was more like a motel masquerading as a hotel.
