    An okay if overpriced standard hotel at Lydgate Park.

    This is an average and overpriced hotel near Lydgate Park in Wailua, not Kapaa. Most of the standard rooms have poor views (of other rooms or the parking lot). Breakfast if not included in your rate, is expensive. Without a vehicle you are a captive audience. There is NOT free parking but rather a daily charge for self-parking. There is also a resort fee. There is a pool and some other standard hotel amenities such as filtered water, free wifi and lobby coffee in the morning. The rooms are a decent size, with a microwave, mini-refrigerator with small freezer large enough for an ice pack. There are two bottled waters, and a Keurig coffee machine. An ironing board and iron are provided and bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, body loton in dispensers. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo with a shower curtain. There is no room safe. Nice flat screen TV with limited Direct TV channels. Wifi and A/C worked well. There is a work desk with task lamp and a breakfast table with chairs. Staff was mostly friendly although not everyone at the desk has all of the answers.m, and they don't pick up the phone. Very conveniently located for the airport (10 minute drive) and on the south side of the Wailua River bridge which is under repair.

    Good location next to beach park

    My ocean view room on 3rd floor almost 5 stars, but wear-and-tear throughout property makes it 4 stars overall. Be aware demolition of old Coco Palms hotel nearby across river will cause heavy-machinery noise but I was very lucky they were not working days I stayed here. Family groups of Locals were enjoying the cabins that are also rented by this property, so I suggest if you are a tourist you stay in a hotel room not a cabin. My room was large, 2 queen beds, sofa, desk and 1 rattan desk chair. Decent size closet including iron and ironing board. Coffee maker, hair dryer, walk in shower much safer than tub/shower, big TV, chest of 6 drawers, padded bench and ottoman, microwave and mini refrigerator. The AC works fine and top window opened more than 3 feet to let in ocean breeze with no bugs coming in on 3rd floor. Workers at this hotel we interacted with were all very friendly. Live music 2 nights, ukulele lessons and lei making in lobby. 2 pools, one with large jacuzzi. I would stay here again, in ocean view 3rd floor room in the future. Beach park within walking distance has safe sandy swimming area.

    Wild Uncontrolled Party Ruins Stay

    Read on for the really exciting or irritating part of our stay. Hotel is located in a decent and somewhat central spot. Condition of the property is two to three star. We arrived and were offered an upgrade to a cottage. This is a single unit with a shared wall a bit away from the main hotel wings and relatively close the beach. Sounded great……Room was decent and served its purpose. Has a refrigerator, microwave and no dishes or utensils. The pictures imply that these items are available but just be aware they are not. The last night there, there was a party in our adjoining unit that started sometime between 10-11. Young people partying with lots of base, f bombs and the like. Called the front desk who dispatched the lone security officer on duty. It took at least six angry calls to the front desk, at least two visits by the security guard and two alleged trips by local police to clear this room. And when it was finally cleared it was 3:10AM. Four hours to gain control of the party unit. Sounds like some of the participants were minors and it doesn’t appear anyone was arrested. Once they were reported the party crew pounded on our walls to get back at us. Security is a real issue and we did not feel safe while all this was going on. Just be aware that this place doesn’t have a decent security plan and you can surely find a better place to stay. Full disclosure, I insisted on the full return of three nights of points and a complete refund of any other payments to the hotel (Parking) and the manager did take care of this after we departed. He was much more apologetic than the front desk crew was at check out. Appreciate that but wish there was a better game plan to address a real safety issue on the property in under four hours. Would rate negative stars if allowed. We plan to return to Kauai but would sleep on the beach before stepping foot onto this place again.

    In need of serious updating!

    The staff at the hotel were welcoming, professional and very helpful. The restaurant food was excellent. The breakfast that we had there was delicious. The infrastructure is in serious need of upgrading. The cushions in the lobby are stained and faded. One elevator had the plywood floor exposed. Our room was seriously musty. Upon our arrival, I opened the slider to let in the fresh air. Our table in the Tiki bar was sticky and in need of serious cleaning and the water glasses were cloudy and did not look clean. Very disappointing for a Hilton property.

    A one star is too high. Our room was dirty. They put a mobile AC unit in our room that was taped to the window with masking tape. There was paint chipping off around the door. Several guests we talked to had similar bad things to say about this hotel. Don’t stay here, you’ll be disappointed,
