Relaxing getaway

The rooms were much larger than other hotels in the area that I've stayed at in the past. The hotel was clean, but also a little outdated. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The views with the balcony was great! I would definitely recommend this place as it is a great hotel at a great price!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't waste your money on expensive sushi places in Honolulu. It's probably better to find a small whole in the wall place.

Nice convenient hotel

We recently spent two nights here and had a good experience. Nothing ultra fancy, but nice. It was one of the few less expensive hotels in area, and price was reasonable for clean room and great staff. Not a lot of amenities, but not needed when you can walk to beach in minutes. Trollies and buses are super handy and cheap to get places. Enjoyed managers party with live music, mai tais and snacks. Staff was very helpful! Ihop right next door too. We took pearl harbor tour, super, must see! Also hiked diamond head, must do also!

Weekend trip

Great location! Great room with the conveniences of a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We noticed that some rooms had balconies, ours didn't...wish ours did. We'll be back!

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Ala Moana Shopping Center. Great shops to choose from, huge food court for fast, cook-to-order meals, and California Pizza Kitchen, Macaroni Grill, Tsukiji Fish Market, Bubba Gump's and many other restaurants makes this place a one stop shop!

Excellent Location and Great Staff

The location has easy access to the beach and bus transportation. The Staff was very helpful and friendly. I would go back since it is a good value for your money spent.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a 4 day bus pass(cash only) at any ABC store and your bus stop is right next to the hotel. The 8, 19 or 20 bus lines take you pretty much everywhere a first time tourist would want to go in Honolulu.

Good one night stay

The Palms is a well-priced option for 1 night in Honolulu prior to cruising. It's right across from the HHV with all its amenities; you can take free chairs/towels over to the beach; wi-fi works well; room was clean; we even had an obstructed ocean view. While it wasn't luxury, it was practical and effortless.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Do NOT eat at the IHOP or Wailana diner next door. the IHOP is poor quality at outrageous prices; Wailana has good prices but poor quality.

Good hotel

The rooms are small but clean. The staff was wonderful. Right across from Hilton Hawaiian Village. The beach is a very short walk from the hotel.

Great location!

Pros: Great location Clean Great customer services Free internet Quiet Cons: Everything is small (room, garage, restroom, pool) There was some extra fee that I need to call them to ask about.

You get what you pay for

My family had reserved 2 rooms. One had 3 adults and the second had 2 adults. Although we had requested rooms be located on the same floor one month prior to the start, the first set were not on the same floor and the one room for 3 people only had one Queen size bed. After telling the manager that the amount paid was for 3 people, she finally looked in their files to confirm what I had been saying from the start. In the end, the room for the 3, had a lumpy sofa bed and a king sized bed. The other room for 2 people had broken lamp shades and leaking bathroom fixtures. Given most time is spent outside the rooms, the location of the hotel and staff made up for its short-comings. p.s. pool supposed to open and be available starting at 7am, only happened 50% of the time there.
