NO ROOM SERVICE?!

The Rooms were decent, I traveled for many years during the military days and out. Never did I stay at a hotel with no room service!! Body hair in the sink in TWO separate rooms. No free Wi-Fi? Come on even Motels give free Wi-Fi. Staff was very friendly, elevators the waits were bad!!

Good Stay

The room was neat and clean. The view was nice. The location was the best part about the hotel, I also liked that there was security. The pool is small and kept playing country music.

Great Location

close enough to walk to everthing fun. Only needed a car to see the North shore. Beach is half block away with plenty of surf and paddle boards to rent. Great food in The International Market directly behind the hotel. The hotel has a fun restraunt and bar. Fun country bar behind the hotel on Kohio ave. Use the hotel parking, only 18.00/day with in and out privs. Overall this is a nice place to stay. Cant think of anything negative to say other than there is not much of an ocean view.

beautiful ocean view

-great ocean view room on the top floor! -rails on the lanai were too wide apart though and we were concerned about our 4 yr old (or any small child) being able to slip between the gaps.

Great location

Great location! In the center of everything so walking distance to many activities within Waikiki Beach. Right across the street from Royal Hawaiin. Had a car so drove many place & staff always helpful & friendly. Only regret was thought we would be on a higher level floor but our room was quiet & restful. Would recommend maybe try a higher level next time.

Okay, but...

The hotel is decent, but a bit dated (1960s vintage in decor) and noisy. It is close to Waikiki, which makes it convenient. Staff are friendly. But that's about it.

Wonderfujl visit in Waikiki-Beachcomber

We had a great time, the room was very quiet, which is what I need. Also, the beds were just right, normally I can't sleep when I am in a hotel, but I slept pretty good.

I would stay there again.

The rooms were very clean. People were very friendly. Couldn't really see the beach from our room but it was nearby and easily accessible. Our balcony overlooked the roof and A/C units of the building next door so didn't sleep with the door open or use it as much as we might have had it been quieter.
