great location on Waikiki beach

The room was very comfortable and it had a nice view of the ocean. We missed not having a bar or eating facilities.

Deal

How much time do you spend in your room? You are in Hawaii, If you are going to be there to sleep, change and get dressed, you need a place to keep your belongings. Then this works, it is on the strip, across form the statue of Duke, right next door to the coveted Eggs and Things for the best "trendy" breakfast get there early to avoid line! No bugs, but no "extras", small rooms, no fancy tv's , but good price. you have the beach and every shop you could ever need, Nothing to brag about, but nothing to complain about.

CONVENIENT

THE LOCATION IS PERFECT, BUT HARD TO FIND IF YOU ARE A FIRST TIME GUEST. PARKING IS INCONVENIENT IN AN UNDERGROUNJD GARAGE AT THE CORNER OF THE BLOCK, WHERE YOU MUST USE A VALET AND WILL BE CHARGED A DAILY FEE. THE ROOM IS CLEAN AND THE BEDS ARE COMFORTABLE. OUR BIGGEST COMPLAINT IS THE LACK OF SHELF SPACE. THE ROOM HAD NO TABLE OR DESK. JUST A SINK IN THE BATHROOM, NO COUNTER NEXT TO IT. WE HAD TO LAY EVERYTHING ON OUR BEDS WHEN GOING TO BED OR GETTING UP IN THE MORNING. THERE WAS DRAWER SPACE. NO LIGHT WHERE THE CLOSET WAS. WE HAD TO USE A FLASHLIGHT TO SEE. HAD OLD STYLE TV. HAS REFRIGERATOR AND A SAFE. GENERAL APPEARANCE OF THE HOTEL WAS OK, BUT THE INTERIOR OF THE ELEVATOR NEEDS UPGRADING. CONVENIENCE STORE, MCDONALDS AND COFFE SHOP IN THE SAME BLOCK. REMEMBER YOU ARE AT WAIKIKI BEACH IN THIS HOTEL AND THE SIDE WALKS ARE PACKED DURING THE DAY AND AT NIGHT. EXCELLENT LOCATION FOR BEACH LOVERS, WHICH IS JUST ACROSS THE STREET. WE WERE GONE DURING THE DAY AND THIS HOTEL FULFILLED OUR NEEDS WITH REASONABLE ROOM RATES .

IF YOU LIKE JAPANESE FOOD PREPARED AT YOUR TABLE, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TANAKA OF TOKYO. SEAFOOD VILLAGE IS REASONABLE, GOOD AND HAS EARLY BIRD SPECIALS. BOTH PLACES ARE ON THE WAIKIKI BEACH STRIP.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

A cheap way that I found to see much of the island without getting lost was the bus. There's a bus that could take you anywhere. It gives you the chance to not get lost, not have to drive, and save some money. The bus is $2.50, but you get a return ticket that allows you to go back for free. So really, it's only $1.25 each way. I merely put in where I wanted to go into my MAP app on my phone and it gave me the bus number, time of pick up, location to catch, as well as distance and ETA. Just a simple way to see the island and the common everyday folk from the island. I enjoyed my experience from not having to drive myself around as well as feel cheated for being over charged for a taxi ride.

A great appreciation for "Old Style Hospitality"

We were greeted and treated kindly for our entire stay there. The staff are wonderful, always willing to help with directions or typical tourist information. Conveniently located accross the street from the beach. It's old style Hawai that's been maintained very well. We can't wait to go back there again!

Don't be afraid to try the smaller restraunts off of the main streets for some really tasty Hawaiian local favorites. If you have a sweet tooth, try Ted's Hauapia pie. Musubi is also a breakfast food favorite among the locals.

Good Location but...

Location can't get any better!!! Room wise, it is an average motel 8 with a better bed. TV is facing away from the bed and can't see it while you are in the bed. people in the hallway can see you sleeping in the bed due to the windows are not so well covered. Glass wall facing the hallway covered with curtains. No counter-top space in the bathroom. Everything had to be placed on the top of the toilet water tank. Very nice lady at the counter in the early evening but rude male attendant at night. He thought the guest was someone else and it looked like he cancelled the room key until the customer could verify the stay at the front desk. Price wise, additional $80 or so a night, you can be in the Hyatt next door. Overall, I needed a place to take a shower and crash for a few hours to catch a flight while get to dip in the water at the beach! Not bad for the price but don't expect 3-star services...
