Fodor's Expert Review Kauai Shores

420 Papaloa Rd., Wailua (Kauai County), Hawaii, 96746, USA

This oceanfront inn has been transformed into an affordable boutique hotel, thanks to a much-needed renovation of its guest rooms and public spaces. It remains no-frills lodging, but rooms are comfortable and clean, with a refrigerator and the property is adjacent to a public coastal walking and biking path. A big grassy courtyard opens to the beach, where a restaurant and lounge are perched on the sand. There's plenty of dining and shopping at the nearby Coconut Marketplace.
