The customer service was very good. The view and location were also very good; however, the air conditioner did not work and the fan would go off when you turned out the inside lights. Needless to say it was not a restful night. And there was also a very heavy mildew spell when entering the room.

The room smells musty and disgusting. We found two cockroaches crawling on the carpet just after we entered the room. We saw a few comments about the bugs. It turned out to be very true. We have come back home for a week, but our suitcases are still left in our car because we don’t want to bring the bugs into our house.

We ended up staying at the Hotel Coral Reef last minute due to an unforeseen circumstance during our camping trip in Kauai and I am so thankful we chose here! This is a place that are now few and far between; a family owned and ran hotel. Unlike most other places in the area, there are no "resort fees", "cleaning fees" etc. Peggy Sue is the great-grandma and is the most adorable person you will come across! She welcomed us with open arms and as we were only staying for one night she insisted that she would have banana bread waiting for us in the morning at 7am. Due to a late night change of plans we had to leave at 5am and didn't get to enjoy the bread, however, I'm sure many others did! Our stay was so enjoyable that we went back for a second night at the end of our trip. The property is an older one and from the road may look a bit deceiving but don't let that stop you from staying here! Although dated, our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. They also have local Kauai Coffee Company coffee in the room which was a lovely treat! Honestly, I cannot rave about this place enough. It was just wonderful and I think it is special to be able to stay at a place like this while they still exist because big chains are taking over. I must add, this is one of the cheapest places to stay on the island, therefore the value is wonderful! You are also within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in Kapaa, and have a beautiful place to watch sunrise!

Beautifully located on the water with a great path for walking and biking right there. Convenient to shops and food choices. Very friendly and helpful staff. The economy room we stayed in was old but clean. The bed was very comfortable. Loved using their bicycles to explore on our first night on Kauai. Not a full service resort but a nice hotel. Would stay there again.
