Very Happy

Yes, the hotel is "worn." The rooms were clean, the hotel's design is so unique and fun, my balcony actually faced the hotel behind us, but I had a perfect view of the beach towards Diamond Head once you turned the chairs. Magnificent! Waikiki is noisy period, I don't know if you can stay anywhere along that avenue where you wouldn't hear traffic noise. Would most definitely stay here again!!! Tip- if you have a late night or red-eye flight, inquire with the front desk about a 1/2 day rate.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get a bus schedule from the visitors center. You can get anywhere on the island on the bus instead of renting a car. Plus, you can get great meals at the farmer's markets, to save money on dining. There are some great little restaurants and sandwich shops along Kuhio Avenue.

Great Great Great!!

This hotel was in a perfect location, right across from the beach and in the HEART of the shopping area of Waikiki. Many restaurants are close by and those ABC convenience stores are on every corner that have just about everything you need from toiletries to food and gifts. The room was just perfect for my husband and I. Yes, the bathroom is small, but big deal! We were hardly there anyway. We had an ocean front view and requested 8th floor and above. They granted my request by giving us a 9th floor room with an outstanding view. The room was very clean and the A/C worked great. Car rental places, bus system, and mopeds are very close by. We used all three while there. Most of the staff members were quite friendly. We didn't leave until 7:30 pm our last evening in Hawaii, but they allowed us to keep our bags stored free of charge which was a great convenience for us.

Make sure you check out Hula Grill for beachside breakfast, a short 5 minute walk from the hotel. Also, Duke's has great atmosphere at night for dinner. Enjoy!

Great location and clean

The location is wonderful. Right across from the beach. The snorkeling about a 100 yards away was awesome. The protected swimming area across from the hotel is comforting to protect from ocean currents. A pool would have been nice. The rooms aren't luxury, but the price was a bargain compared to others in the area. I would recommend it for the budgeting traveler.

Stay on the main strip. Once you get off of the main strip there are some shady characters. Diamond Head State Park is a must and only about a mile away.

Super location, going back again

At this particular hotel they assign rooms on a daily first come first serve basis. If you're not happy with your room they give you the option of moving to an available room and they assist you with moving your belongs. The room was small and cozy, very clean, and the customer service was excellent. The hotel is very nice for the price you pay. We plan to stay again at the same hotel and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a basic hotel. The only amenities that were available to us was a safe, refridgerator, and a blowdryer. Comfortable bed, excelent housekeeping. The view is to die for from the front rooms and the location couldn't get any better, it's right by the tour bus pick up, continental coffee every morning at the front desk. 3 minute walk from room to beach.

Nice hotel

Great location! Hard to beat it. Very friendly staff. Has some limited parking. Rooms were small, basic and clean. But are you really in Hawaii to sit in your room? Great value for the price.

Bed Bugs

The location was great but you sacrifice amenities and park. Everything was great until I woke up one day with all these bedbug bites. The staff blamed it on tourist who travel bring these pests with them but I think If they only clean there rooms and sheets like they are suppose to then this would of never happened.

Small but cute and in the best location

This hotel is the cutest thing. It is small and dates back to the early 1900's, but that is part of it's charm. There are no frills, but I love it just the way it is. The circular hall when you get off the elevator is adorable. It takes less than 5 min. to get from your room to the beautiful Waikiki beach. The staff is friendly and they keep your room clean and neat. Book an ocean front room. Beautiful!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a man that passes out flyers to a steak and seafood place one block behind the hotel. They serve a great steak with shrimp or fish for about 12 dollars (served with a potato or rice and vegetables). We eat here once or twice each time we go. It is not fancy, but the food tastes great. Don't order tea, get a pepsi.
