Only thing good was the staff

Under a highway that was built after the hotel was erected. Freezing cold brought dirty blankets to keep us warm. Staff were gems but overworked

Great local staff crummy location

Basically the highway was built over the existing hotel. Great staff, overworked and underpaid. They really tried to Be accommodating, just not much to work with. Freezing cold in room with no way to adjust temp.

one night layover

We stop on our way into Hawaii and when we leave in April. We connect to other islands the next day so we are well rested when we get to our final destination. This would be a good marketing idea to capture one day customers heading out to outer islands the next day rather than traveling from the mainland and to an outer island all in one day, too exhausting but cheaper. A special discount would narrow the cost gap and be appealing to travelers. Location is perfect to get back to the commuter lines, less than 5 minutes.

Does the job.

For those seeking an affordable airport near the hotel, this is a great choice. Reliable shuttle service to and from HNL. Room is nothing spectacular but comfortable.
