Good location

We needed to stay out of our house while it was being fumigated. For the price, this place was great, plus they're pet friendly. The only issue was that they put us in a room right next to the elevator...and with people walking by every couple of minutes, our dog went nuts! The location is great, as it's near Legend's bar and Marukame Udon, one of the best udon restaurants in Waikiki. The room was clean, except for the used plastic knife our dog found underneath one of the beds. There is a microwave and mini fridge, so that was convenient. The place is not luxurious but it was fine for our needs for the one night. For the price, I would recommend it.

Friendly staff & good location

Everyone who worked the front desk was very courteous and welcoming. Great staff, great experience as well as quality, especially for the price... location is great... close to everything you need when staying near Waikiki. The hotel has been remodeled inside pretty nice and feels comfortable. The only thing that I can say needs improving, is the cleanliness of the rooms... very minor things like cleaner coffee pots and water bug near trash in bathroom.. which is common in tropical areas. Overall I would highly recommended for a short stay in Waikiki.

not a great choice

Very below average hotel. $25 per day parking was ridiculous, small parking lot so sometimes you have to park in a property two blocks away.

Waikiki

The staff was great, very helpful. The room was adequate, and I thought a bit on the pricey side at $180 per night with tax. But seemed to be the best this search engine could find. Location is good, about 5-10 minute walk to the beach and with lots of food options nearby.

Great Price with NOT SO great location & vacation is all about LOCATION!

I stayed at this hotel a total of three times, not exactly sure what brought me back a third time besides the affordability factor and maybe a glimmer of hope of it being better than last time. Most recent stay I payed around $65/night, not bad for a hotel a short walk from Waikiki Beach BUT...this was and IS my last time. I stayed with my lovely wife who was a first timer in Hawaii. The location of this hotel is horrible, can't say anything better really...you have women selling themselves a few hundred feet away from the main entrance, people openly offering all kinds of drugs as you walk to the hotel and the NOISE, oh boy the noise. Delivery trucks with LOUD refrigerated trailers who have a tendency to pull up to the main entrance, park and the driver disappears for an hour or two...and this is at 5AM, GARBAGE trucks, the NOISE just echoes through the street the hotel sits on and there is nothing you'll be able to do to suppress it, NOTHING, BELIEVE ME when I say it, I've stayed here three times. The staff is WONDERFUL, very nice people who will go out of their way to make you happy, that you can't beat.

Horrible

The parking situation was a horror and cost $42 per night (12 stalls only). The room AC blowing into your face. You can hear everyone's doors open and closed. The bath sink was too high for short people and clogged up / slow drainage. Worst experience in Waikiki ever in 30 years.
