Thanks all for previous reviews. This was exactly as we expected. Unmatchable location for the price. Literally behind some of the top hotels in Waikiki and only a portion of the price. The rooms are clean and basic. We had a room at the end of the building and it was a little noisy (traffic and pedestrian noise). WIFI was...

Aloha Feeder11, Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay. You happened to be visiting while our IT department was in the process of upgrading our wifi system, so you likely ran into some issues with intermittent connection due to this transition. I am glad to hear that we were able to waive your amenity fee for the...

Stay hotel is a comfortable, smaller hotel in the heart of Waikiki. My wife and I stayed 10 days here and were most impressed by the location, friendly staff eager to go above and beyond to assist in finding attractions and providing directions, and the spacious rooms. From the balcony, you can see the Pacific Ocean.

This was a great little room for the price. The room was clean, modern and compact. The staff were nice and accommodating. The hotel was within walking distance to the beach and fine shopping such as fendi, channel, Louis Vuitton and many other stores. There were many restaurants to chose from. I would definitely stay here the next time I...

The perfect hotel for travellers like me with a limited budget who still want to make the most of their vacation. I travelled to Hawaii because I'm the biggest fan of the TV show "Hawaii Five-0" and wanted to visit the home of my favorite show and cast - but didn't have a lot of money to spend. I booked...

We booked for a 5 night stay and a follow up stay after returning from another island for a further three nights. We booked here as we wanted a two bedroom apartment that was in a good location. Stay came up and when compared to the other options with vacancy at the time we needed, the rates were much better...

Aloha Simon B, Thank you for taking the time to share your sentiments regarding your recent stay with us. I do apologize that you were unable to get a good night's sleep due to the music emanating from Wang Chung's, which is arguably the most popular karaoke bar in Waikiki.

The location was amazing! Just a block from the beach, walking distance to everything, it was awesome! The hotel itself was cute and modern, the room was quite small but clean and all we needed as we were really only there to sleep. The staff was super friendly and went above and beyond if we needed anything. The only thing...

I stayed in a "boutique" room, and I won't lie, it was tiny. It lacked a desk or even chairs (except for a fairly cheap set on the balcony) and the bathroom was one of the smallest I've ever used--but it DID have a very nice shower. Despite this, I ended up really enjoying my stay. Why? It is ONE...

Very friendly hotel with the entire staff and great location. Room size was ok, but I suppose the one with balcony would be even better. The only thing they should really improve is cleanliness - would recommend daily floor and bathroom cleaning.
