This is the place if you want to support a family owned hotel that's cute, reasonably priced, and well located. Staff were super warm and helpful no matter the time of day and were very generous with amenities. The hotel is cute and is one of the few in the area that isn't like 100 stories tall.
It's great for a solo traveler as it's reasonably priced and the area is very safe and well lit - I even left my hotel door ajar for an entire evening by mistake without any consequences.
It's close to the Moana beach (more peaceful) and the moana center (super convenient) as well as right in front of the airport bus stop. I was there for a conference and the walk to the convention center is 10-15 min depending on your stride.
Air conditioning worked great, though I didn't need it much in May. Water pressure was excellent.
One small thing is that the road traffic can be an issue if you're a light sleeper, but I generally didn't have this problem after the first jet-lagged night. The balconies also don't offer much of a view due to the size of the hotel, but you'll get better views by leaving the hotel anyways!
Overall would recommend and would happily stay here again.

Sandy was very welcoming when bartender at the cafe and made me laugh and feel right at home at the Equus. Would definitely stay here again. There’s a variety of cocktails and drinks, with good cafe food.

Lincoln and Sandy were so personable. The 2 of them made us feel welcome. We enjoyed the location of the hotel. The staff will help you with local places to eat and how to find different locations on the island.

Location was good.
Beds and pillow were comfortable.

liked having a cozy cafe downstairs in the lobby
wifi was adequate
friendly staff

Disliked · 
felt like a very old hotel.
room is falling apart, carpets. It badly needs a renovation.
very expensive for the quality of physical space, although likely a value for the area.

$30 per day for parking and not even a guaranteed space in the actual lot (there's an overflow access to a large parking garage, but that's not convenient. if I was going to use that, I might as well have paid for a better alternative. One night they found us a space 3 floors up where I had to maneuver my car behind a pole
loud on low floors being near the highway
