The title is the only positive thing I can say about this property. The picture on the site are not pictures of this property. The bathroom fixtures were broken and you could hear every noise outside and was awaken continually through the night. The lobby had what looked like a large shower curtain that stretched across or you would be...

We were concerned reading some of the poor reviews before leaving but were extremely relieved on arrival. The staff were pleasant. The free coffees in reception were great. The rooms were clean and of a decent size. We heard nothing of the street noise that other guests had complained about. We were on level 4 so this may have helped.The...

Aloha Renee R, Thank you for sharing your very fair review of your recent stay.

The Staff is great, very polite and are there to help you in any way they can. My wife and I were on the eight floor and we enjoyed the room, the view, and the swiftness of the elevator. The morning coffee was also good. The price for the room is good, I see a lot of people complaining about...

Aloha Lidia562017, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am very happy to hear that you had a great experience with us. You are absolutely right about Waikiki having very limited parking available. Not only is our parking fee quite nominal in comparison to other rates in the area, but it also includes in and out...

Staff are very kindness. Room is very clean. location is perfect for The Waikiki beach. In the first floor has a vending machine. A convenience store is very near from hotel. Room-cleaner is very good at the everyday. I confidently recommend you. とても良いホテルでした。部屋も清潔でスタッフの対応も親切でした。場所もワイキキビーチまで歩いて直ぐの所にあります。次回も利用したいです。

I'm giving this 3 stars instead of 2 because I have become a hotel snob. I'm just going to list the pros and cons and you can make your own decision on whether or not this is a place you'd like to stay. Pros: cheap, for Honolulu standards. $124 on Orbitz, room only. Very small but nice lobby with pod...

We spent 5 nights here. The Location was ideal but the room tired. The windows were louvred and the noise levels at night and early morning were shocking. The bathroom was old and the taps leaked. The pillows were very hard but the staff were good.

Great location. Close to lots of shopping, hotels, restaurants, bars and only 1 block from the beach. Good central location. Really helpful and friendly staff. Clean rooms. Fair price for what you get. Nothing fancy but it's good if you're on a budget but still want quality. Would stay again.

The pictures of the hotel on its website highlights something fancy, but the place was not as creative as it showed. This hotel has an 4pm check-in policy.
