Cheap for Waikiki

It is what it is...a decent hotel surrounded by expensive alternatives. It's probably half the price of anything on the beach, and not a far walk to get there. Parking is scarce. Arrive early, and not at night!

Almost Good

I go to Honolulu from a neighbor island for business therefore cost is important. the cost is OK but once you add the "amenities fee" and the parking, I'm then paying 50% more. Not cool that you find out just when you arrive. As fas as the hotel itself is good nothing spectacular, a good place to sleep and go onto doing your activities. It has a decent swimming pool

Short but nice trip

The rooms are average but the they really turn things up a notch with a king bed, full sized fridge, and a stove. The sink was so clean I could almost use it as a mirror. The kitchen was an unexpected pleasure for someone use to just a microwave & hot-plate, it was like being in an appartment.

If you really don't want to travel far for some good food, ABC and Whaler stock some excellent fresh food for most tastes. I was pleasantly surprised at the salad selection from both stores.

Cochroach in te bathroom

My husband an I checked in and were assigned double beds. They accommodated us by allowing us to switch to a room that had a king bed, that was the only positive. The hotel feels like a prison cell, the showers where grimy, the elevators were scary and no stair access. Woke up to a cockroach in our bathroom, when I told the front desk upon check out, the response I got was "ok, thanks, we will let housekeeping know". No apology or anything!!! Parking was $20 a day and our car was scratched in te parking lot!

Conference trip

The hotel is overall a good one for the value. The room was clean and the stuff behavior was very good. Some of the things that I think was missing: the AC in my room was too noisy, there was no coffee machine in the room, the coin-changer at the laundry room never seemed to work.

Great value for the money

Went for a conference, stayed 8 nights. Pros: great location, everything is nearby or easily accessible, the beach is a short walk away, great view, the room has everything you need, the staff is helpful and smiling, the rooms are very clean and smoke-free, free high-speed Internet in the room, a kitchenette with the basic stuff, an oven, a fridge, a nice balcony. Cons (insignificant, but for you to know): the equipment of the kitchenette is too basic, no condiments, the frying pan is not a non-sticky type, everything sticks to it, the countertop had a burnt edge, no hand lotion/body lotion, the towels are relatively small. It also gets pretty noisy at night, the traffic never stops, so you should consider it if you have sleep problems. Overall, Waikiki is a very expensive place, and I was very lucky in this hotel paying $ 69 per night and enjoying so many things - cleanliness, closeness to the beach and every possible shopping/dining place, swimming pool, very courteous staff, and gorgeous views.
