Mediocre hotel, great location

The only reason to stay at this hotel is because of its central location across the street from the beach. The only other good thing is the friendly staff. The rooms are small. There is a small fridge in the room, but no microwave. The shower is painfully small and the head cannot even be moved. The most annoying thing was the $10.50 per day mandatory amenities fee. The claimed things covered by this were daily newspapers, a DVD kiosk, and wifi. The only thing I used was the wifi which certainly shouldn't have cost anywhere near $10 per day. These types of surprise hidden fees annoy me no end and it caused me to deduct a star from my rating.

Perfect location

This hotel has the perfect location right across from the beach. It's also centrally located in Waikiki so I was able to walk pretty much anywhere up and down the Waikiki strip. The room is on the small side and the shower is tiny, but the location and the view really makes up for the room size.

good location, but noisy

The place is in very good location, right in front of wakiki beach. But the air conditon is quite loud, making noise that could not sleep well.

Unimpressed

I chose this hotel over others that were cheaper because of reviews that I had seen online. And I was underwhelmed. The hotel is old, the rooms are small, and there are no amenities. And my supposed ocean view room was hampered by a noisy outdoor AC unit on the next building that made sitting on the balcony impossible. I would've been better off staying in a better known chain hotel.

Nice!

Not a crazy over the top hotel, Does not have a pool and the rooms are small, and the bathroom really small....but for us it was location location location. the width of the street away from the beach, walking distance of everything. the price was fair. we liked it. Staff was solid helped us with whatever we needed, ex. Directions, early check in, late check out, and what not. It worked for us.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

When you cross the street the beach is right there but so are all the people, just walk 5 mins down the sidewalk west of there and you get much more sandy beaches to yourself and far less people in the water. if you have a car take the 15-20 min drive west to Sandy Beach Park, far less people all sandy beaches and waters no rocks or coral for the most part. Also there can be some big waves!

Perfect for two

A terrific place to stay if you don't care about emenities. The rooms are small but we were not in them long so that didn't matter to us. They were clean, and comfortable, with a friendly and helpful staff. No pool is a bummer even though your right across the street from the beach, however there is not a lot of room on the beaches, they are typically packed. Would stay here again!!

Moose McGillicuties is a great place to eat for breakfast or dinner, Wed night is super busy because it's burger night, and the burger and fries are only $6.95 which is a great deal in Waikiki. We also enjoyed LuLu's for breakfast, excellent.

Great Budget Hotel for Waikiki

We loved it. A throw back to the '50s but quiet, comfortable, and a great location. No frills, but we did not go to Hawaii for the hotel. Perfect centralized location for seeing Oahu. Great value for those on a budget and right on the beach!

Family vacation

Loved this hotel! The location was perfect and the room was spotless. I have traveled all over the world, and for the money, this hotel was great! The staff was very efficient ,and we had a great view of Waikiki Beach. Very quiet hotel--never heard other guests. The rooms are small, so be aware of that, but the beds are comforable. If you are looking for a good deal with a clean room and great location, this hotel is a great choice.

Eat at Leonard's Malasadas for one-of-a-kind pastries and donuts. There is always a line, but be patient, well worth the wait.
