The hotel is located at the end of Waikiki beach. It's perfect with an amazing front desk staff. Check in was a breeze and our room was very well appointed with a/c, free wifi, and a mini fridge. Great lanai for relaxing with a cocktail. Great views from corner room of city and Waikiki beach. Pool has amazing views of...

We have stayed at this hotel before and have always loved it. It had been six years since our last stay and it has gone down hill so badly. We had a late arrival and upon check in was told they were sorry they didn't have any rooms on a higher floor, but to come back in the morning and...

You have to remember that you are paying a low price compared to main hotels (well at least I hope you are otherwise don't stay here) We paid a low price so all was acceptable. It is outdated but the beds were very comfortable. The aircon was not on and we never put it on. We slept well without it....

Ok, so we stayed here 3 nights. As we have read before, the rooms are not super updated, but they are clean. We personally had no roaches, nor did we see one at any point in our stay. We had a city and ocean view, as we were a corner room, which was nice. The only downside was the noise,...

Staff were very nice. Room was also nice too if it wasnt infested with cockroaches! Moms, babies, in my bed, fridge, bathroom, and my luggage! I tried to make sure that I did NOT take any of them home to California. But that totally ruined my sleep as I was too scared. They staff sprayed the room down twice but...

We visited this hotel for a one night stay at an over priced rate "for what we got" of $181 a night. My boyfriend asked for an ocean view with a king size bed. We get to this tiny room and long and behold it is a partial ocean view, I saw more of the other guest than the actual...

I like to be on this end of Waikiki overlooking Kapiolani park and facing Diamond Head. Friendly staff and excellent rooms and affordable. I come here on business and pleasure through out the year(s).

I just stayed 4 days in an ocean view room - views of Diamond Head and the ocean lovely. The hotel is an old beauty but the situation across from the zoo and Queen Kapiolani Park wonderful. The pool deck/bar/dining area on the 3rd floor is huge, clean, lots of loungers and a great view. A bonus for those with...

Although there are many competing hotels, this one did it for us. The price was right, the location decent and the amenities were acceptable.in fact this is the perfect hotel if the beach isn't your daily objective. It's close to everything yet far enough away from everything else to keep the most down.
