The popular, low-cost Kauai Sands Hotel is welcoming guests to one of “America’s Prettiest Towns” -- Kapaa on the island of Kauai -- with a special offer that includes a free rental car and breakfast.

The “Free Car Promotion” at the beachfront Kauai Sands includes an upgraded, pool-view room, a compact car and parking. Hotel guests also get a free continental breakfast.

Rates are $135-$149 a night. The offer is good through Dec. 24.

The hotel is near art galleries, boutiques and restaurants in Kapaa, recently singled out in Forbes magazine. One of the judges of the “Prettiest Towns,” travel writer Andrew Evans, sang the praises of the sleepy Kauai community.

“It’s a very Hawaiian town with traditional ukulele makers and fish taco trucks parked under the palm trees,” he wrote. “It’s a small town with a lot of Hawaiian life, minus the tourist fray.”  

The hotel was recently rebranded as one of Aqua Hospitality’s Lite Hotels, a collection of properties for budget-minded travelers.  The guest rooms have recently been spruced up as have the gardens and two swimming pools.
