My first review wasn't published, probably too many complaints, so short and sweet - stay well clear of it, it is a dump. Internet/fax didn't work, grab and go breakfast included, overpriced, noisy, drab furnishings, out of the 1950's.

Going to make this simple and a quick read. We have traveled here before and I decided to get a little lower end hotel. Here is what it's like. Sleeping- the noise starts at 530am and doesn't stop till 230am. You can hear everything going on. Trash trucks busses from the neighboring hotel. If your a light sleeper or wanna... More

I chose this hotel for the price as against location. However, I do not recommend this hotel to anyone for the following reasons: 1. The room is really small like a prison cell and sometimes it was even hard to turn around. 2. The washroom is small and you may bump something each time you use it. 3. The so... More

Stayed a few nights while in Waikiki and was pleased with the location and staff friendliness. Small room but perfect for a single. Provided beach towels, mats and other floaties only one block from the beach.

I recently stayed here with a friend - both of us who have recently traveled around Europe, staying at hostels. We both concluded that this was more like a nice hostel rather than a 3 star hotel.

The hotel is very well situated, in the middle of Waikiki (near restaurants, shops, beaches). However some rooms don't have actual closed windows, which means all the noise from the streets gets into your room. Late at night you'll hear people walking down the streets or cars honking, and early in the morning you get woken up by trucks unloading... More
