Great new rooms, beautiful view

At first we were a little disappointed as we had emailed ahead of time to get a room as high up as possible as this was our first time in Hawaii and it was our 10 yr anniversary/honeymoon we never took. When we first got their to check in we were on the 2nd floor...that's the lowest of the rooms, we were a little crushed, barely any view. We felt a little annoyed that the guy we had emailed a couple times apparently hadn't done anything he said. However the next day we went down and talked with the worker, the daytime guy who was VERY nice, and he said the the next day we could be moved up to the 11th floor which was perfect as those floors had been remodeled already also, and were nice...nothing spectacular as far as rooms go, but nice and great views, we spent many nights on our patio. Construction/remodeling was currently going on on the 6th and 7th floor, so all of the floors above that were completed. It was noisy during the day, a couple days more so than others, but the hotel was good to put out notices of what was going on to "warn" you...plus when you are in Hawaii you don't really spend your days in the hotel room. The hotel is quite small compared to all the surrounding hotels, but good service, very friendly staff. The price of the rooms was unbeatable for right across from the beach, however I have an idea that once remodeling is complete their prices will go up as well. I think our next trip we may try to stay in a bit taller hotel, and get higher up. There was some air conditioner noise and other building noise from the surrounding buildings. Definitely worth the money though if you were on a budget like us and want to spend money on other things yet still get the beach view from your room and access to the beach, you can put your swimsuit on and go directly accross the road to the beach...can't beat that! The hotel was also able to book our Luau at Paradise Cove for us which I would suggest anyone do! It was kind of spendy, but so worth the experience! Some of the other great things we did was snorkeling at Hanaunau Bay, Diamond Head, and Manoa Falls. Also eat at all the great places like Dukes, Margaritaville (must get the chocolate hurricane), and Cheeseburger in Paradise. So much fun! We were sad to leave!

Take a shuttle to aloha stadium and go to the flea market thing they have. They sell all the things the shops down in Waikiki sell, but at way better prices and are way more willing to work with you...plus they have delicious macadamia nuts!

Great view and location

This hotel is right on the beach and has great views, we had the ocean view room. The rooms are very small but clean and newly remodeled. Nothing fancy but great for our short stay. I had requested two rooms together and the manager called me before we checked in to make sure our requests were taken care of and held a parking spot for us. There is a $12 parking fee. Check in was very slow but other than that it was great.

Great location!

We stayed at this hotel the week of 12/06-12/12/10. My partner & I stayed with our 2 teenage daughters. While the rooms are small and bathrooms cramped, we did very well all together and loved the convenience of the beach right across the street. There are many restaurants and hotels close by including McDonald's almost downstairs as well as an ABC Store right below as well. Very handy for snacks or any type of need you may have. Another awesome feature was their tub of boogie boards, beach mats, air mattresses, swimming noodles etc. You could just borrow these at any time and return when finished with no checkout necessary. They have beach towels available with simple sign in and out at the front desk. While we were there they were doing renovations which may prove to solve some of the minor problems with not having space to hang wet items and using up space with a desk that I imagine not many would have need for. Overall we loved this location, could walked everywhere that was needed, and felt confident our girls could go back and forth easily and without much worry on our part.

Helpful for family's of any age range wanting to enjoy the beach- The beach right across from the hotel has a "Swimming Area" which has an opening to allow a few waves and a rock wall across most of it to give a very nice area for kids and adults to swim without worry. The swimming area goes out for 100+ feet and never gets higher than 3ft or so. Mostly it is waist deep and still fun for snorkeling. Our kids saw sea urchins as well as many fish etc. Nothing of the scary sort though :)

Location not comfort

The hotel was exactly what you pay for, location. Don't expect much. The beach towels and water toys were nice but in Hawaii it is standard. The air conditioner will keep you up most of the night, and the room and bathroom are small enough to bump into yourself. The rooms don't have any place to store your clothes so you need to keep them in your luggage which takes up space. Plan on using one bed to put your belongings on while you use the other bed. But what can I say, the location is right across the street from the beach.

There are too many activities to do on the island. Plan things out and make a schedule that works for you. There are tons of people offering deals and discounts for any and all activities on the streets but make sure transportation is included. Never and I mean never buy souvenirs at any of the ABC stores. They mark up the prices 3 or 4 times as much as the Aloha swap market.

fun and short

The location was fabulous for the price compared to all other places around there. Waikiki beach is a man made beach that has become the main tourist attraction on oahu island, so being able to walk out of this small hotel and cross the street to this beach is definitely easy and comfortable. We stayed on 3rd floor but around 5am everyday, we can hear the street noise and people talking plus the doors slammed on our floor would just rattle our room which made it unpleasant only around this time. We were out all days on excursions and only there to sleep. We recommend this hotel to people who like the beach activities, and run along the city path.

Waikiki nov 2010

I was in a pre renovation room. It was just what I needed, Clean bed, tv and shower. Everything worked and the view from the room was awesome. The new rooms should be really nice. The renovations were restricted to 9 am to 5 pm and there was only one really noisy day. I was there 8 days. I would go back again. Centrally located, I only used a cab once. Walked to everything I needed.
