They claim this “was probably the first hotel on the island.” It’s pretty disheveled with old furnishings, and it’s on a busy intersection. They were painting rooms on our recent visit. Rooms are small (most under 200 sq. ft.), have bathrooms and fridges but no phones or tvs. $55–$70. Cash only in advance. If you stay more than two nights, the rates drop, but you pay in full in advance. They have an old piano in the lobby, but we doubt you’ll find Billy Joel playing here. The reason for the Solid Gold Value is there are not many places with a private room, a/c, and bath for this kind of money on the island, but don’t expect much more than that.

What Readers Have to Say

“I’m sure you get emails like this all the time, but I love your guidebook. When my wife and I were in our local Barnes & Noble looking through guidebooks for our trip to Kauai, yours stood out because of your writing style and humor. Your description of it being more like advice from a friend than a dry guidebook was dead on. Your use of aerial photography and arrows made it so much easier to understand where each hotel was located as well. I’m truly surprised that no one else has done that.”
