Clean, but you get what you pay for

The things that the hotel had going for it was the price and the cleanliness. The things that it did not have going for it was the balcony, no furniture. The pool area opened at 10:00 am and closed at 7:00 - we were interested in earlier AND later hours. We didn't find the hotel staff particularly friendly - a couple of them were OK but the rest were shocking at times and not solution oriented. I don't think the housekeeping staff had very good communication - we tipped and requested some more towels and a sheet over the blanket but it was inconsistent. Overall very basic but adequate.

Excellent Location

The location of this hotel is perfect. It's only a short walk away from Waikiki and the shopping around there, along with all of the dining places in Waikiki as well. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. It is an older hotel, but for the price - this was a perfect place to stay during our trip,

Quite the dump

I gave this place a one star because zero stars was not an option. It's a dump, it's in a dumpy location[...]. Do yourself a favor, find a bridge to sleep under.

Great place for the Price

The cheapest rooms have three single beds, which is kind of weird, but okay. The rooms themselves are nothing fancy, but they are clean and there was a LCD TV in the room that had a great picture. There was also a refrigerator and an electric kettle included in our room. We definately took advantage of these. There is an ethernet cable in the room that you can attach to your laptop to get free internet. The download speeds were good! The pool is small, so I didn't use it since the ocean was so close. This hotel is near major bus lines and is a 10 minute walk to the beach. The maid service is good and the people behind the check-in counter were courteous and helpful. Not many restaurants on the property, however there is a Seattle's Best and a convenience store located right outside the hotel entrance. Overall I was happily satisfied.

Decent for the price

Basic and not the nicest of places, but as the cheapest hotel I found in Waikiki just after New Year's, it was fine by my standards. Good for budget travelers, but you might want to choose a different hotel if you can find one at the same price and location.

Good getaway

Good hotel. Lots of space in the room. Good for families with kitchen and extra beds. Clean pool and good pool area. Walking distance to most of the action in Waikiki, but still out of the way.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If buying supplies and food for the room, go to the nearest grocery store outside of Waikiki and load up. For small purchases the ABC and Whalers are okay, but expensive.
