While everyone was very helpful we were a bit dissappointed that the rooms hadn't really been updated since our last visit. (had been told then they would all be.) Breakfast was included and there was lots of it but it was obviously catering to the Asian visitors. It is close to everything and we had a great break.

Firstly, yes the rooms are decent, bathrooms clean and Hotel is in a good location. But that is ALL. I am beyond angry right now. The staff were rude and unfriendly. I questioned about the prices I was being charged and they kept assuring it was correct. WRONG. I was overcharged. so 3 emails, a facebook complaint and facebook message...

Budget friendly hotel in the middle of Waikiki. Hotel is close to the beach (no more than a 5 minute walk), and very close to restaurants, shops, (international marketplace), bars, etc. If you like noodles, you must check out Marukame Udon. Amazing noodles for cheap. The line is usually out the door, but it goes fairly quickly. Definitely check this...

This is a good hotel located just 2 blocks from the beach. Affordable for Wikiki. Continental breakfast. Rooms a bit outdated. Towels and chairs for beach available for free. Staff is gracious and trying to be helpfull. Parking is extra.
