The hotel was a great price for a reason. The rooms are very small, and the hotel is a little too far away from the action on Waikiki beach. They have flat screen TVs, a small fridge a microwave, and tubs so small that they're only suitable for
showers. There is no wifi in the rooms, and a mildew-ish smell in the lobby. If you can get past these small negatives, you'll have no problem with the hotel. The place is kept clean, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The IHOP connected to the hotel takes the wondering out of what you should have for breakfast. Although the hotel is away from the beach, it does happen to be near some good restaurants.
Room was clean, modern, and quiet even during spring break. The xpedia concierge set up our daily plans, and had all the right maps.
The only sore point was the internet access. They have free access over network cables in each room, but no wifi
except in the lobby. Times have changed, and the lobby was busy every night with people on their phones and tablets.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Long walk from hotel
Check out the Shore Bird Restaurant on Kalia ave on Waikiki beach. Amazing views, good salad bar and you can grill your own steak how you like it for under $20.
Perfect location, I have been to Waikiki 4 times and this is my favorite. Just across the street from the Hilton Hawaian Village, so you can shop and dine there if you choose, access the beach in 5 minutes, close enough to waikiki beach to walk
and shop. Probably a 20 min walk. Parking was no problem, always space and not as difficult as mentioned in prior reviews, which I was worried about, unless you have a large SUV, which then it is still doable, just a little more maneuvering. Only suggestion, do not eat at the coffee shop on the corner, absolutely gross! even though it is crowded?
Great location ! This is my 4th time in Oahu, I have even stayed directly on Waikiki beach but this place is my favorite. Just across the street from the hilton hawaian village, so you can take advantage of all the resort shopping and dining. Make
it to the beach in 5 minutes and down to Waikiki beach and the international market in about 20. Very clean room, not small by any means, perfect ! Did not have any problem with the parking garage either as some have complained about?
The rooms were clean, the service was good, and the location is a short walk to several restaurants and the Ocean. On the other hand, there are very few "Extras' here. I was expecting a nicer, larger pool area, but there is a nice exercise room.
All in all, a decent value stay.
Clean rooms; easy access from Nimitz road; fridge/microwave/lcd tv/wired internet/room safe/newspaper all good; wireless only in loby; $20.00 per day parking; Previously stayed at the Prixce Hotel on most of my trips but no "normal" priced rooms
available this time so used Oxxto find one; Next trip to Hawaii--will stay at the Aqua Palms; adjacent to Ihop and local coffee shop on the corner; Recommend balcony room; oh..across from Hilton/Hale Koa so near beach--front desk offers complimentary beach chair/beach towel for you use.
Spent the time between Christmas and New Year's Day here and enjoyed myself. Incredibly friendly staff, very good value, and an easy, 10-minute walk to the beach (the hotel provided towels and beach chairs). It was a wonderful way to spend the
close of a year and I can't wait to return.
