Kauai Sands Hotel is a wonderful place to stay for the cost conscious traveler. Rooms are quite large, especially if you get a king sized bed. They have small refridgerators, a tv we never used, but not hair dryer (who needs one in Hawaii?), They have two small pools that are well maintained and well used. They are a beachfront hotel, you can walk about a mile in either direction, although if you walk toward the river, you need to follow the street until you come to the main park. It's also located next to the Coconut Marketplace where you can buy needed supplies, clothing, souvenirs, and get good food. Kauai Sands Hotel also has a restaurant, but we were always out and about and never tried it.
