Great Location!

The hotel is old and need's to upgrade de key system that does not work, at one ocasion I had to go downstairs 3 times to get the key to work. The room offers NO Blankets and there is no lock inside the room that would give anyone a better feeling of safety. At the other hand the location of the hotel is in the heart of Waikiki Beach 1 block from the ocean and the price per night is affordable. Make sure to mention that a $25 per night will be charged for parking.

Reviews were right

I was hoping the reviews about the noise were not right, but the noise from outside is loud, my window was brocken open. They are slated windows to allow cool air in, but it wasn't cool outside. The hotel is right behind the Hyatt and they were doing construction and the everyday dump trucks and delivery trucks were heard at 0600 every morning. Beep Beep. If you don't mind an early wake up call, the place is really close to the beach, but that is if you don't mind Waikiki with the hundreds of people crowding around you. I know now, I will not be going back to Aikiki.

Really nice staff here

Couldn't have asked for nicer front desk staff. The free continental breakfast was good and generous. The rooms are very basic.

good place for beach lovers

The speedi shuttle gives door to door pick up and drop off service to this place; only a block away from the center of the beach; room is clean; a little bit noisy because of air conditioner and street traffic.

Nothing special

Room was below average. The windows didn't close all the way so the AC struggled to work. I wore my sandals 100% of the time in the room even in the shower. The noise from the street woke me up everyday by 630 am which was fine for the days we had activities but not for the days I wanted more sleep. I left this hotel two days early

stay as a last resort..

they charge an add'l NON-NEG. $10/dy for use of their beach-towels and poor bread/water breakfast. this is the only time/location to get any coffee either; though my room had a mini-fridge, there was No microwave and no coffee anywhere(even lobby#. they have probs with the water, my tub's drain-plug didn't work and neither did the spout changer so it was stuck on shower-mode only. i had to turn my hot water on under the sink and found out why- the sink had a bad leak and at one time, someone's water was dripping through the roof into the lobby. the slat-glass windows did not work with the handles, i had to use my hands to push them open and then they fell shut after a short time with a startling SLAM. They advertise a bar/grille on the premises but is closed and i found it has been closed since they bought the property from the previous hotel company. the only smoking tolerated is down the front steps outside but they yel at you if you smoke near the ashtray they have set out. they charge an add'l $25/DAY to park. Most of the staff was very rude #one lady was nice) and the place did not feel professionally run. I was there for 2weeks and it didn't get any better. I would not recommend this hotel unless it was the only affordable room available as it was when i was forced to book here.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you plan on renting a car, try to rent the smallest car possible because traffic is nuts, the lanes are all crazy narrow and parking is extremely difficult anywhere. Plan your routes well and try to be in the lane for your next turn ASAP because heavy traffic prevents you from merging to make it and in the AM/PM they cone-off roads for reversible lanes so plan on making 4 rights to make that one left! :)

Not what it seemed

My experience at the Stay Hotel was an unforgettable one! When I booked it online I looked at the pictures of the rooms and decided that's where I wanted to stay. Upon arriving the first thing that got my attention was how tucked away it was and that there was little to no parking. Once I got inside and checked in I noticed that the elegant bar/lounge that was advertised on the hotel's website was closed for renovations, something they could have explained on the website. Once I got in my room I was so disappointed, it looked absolutely nothing like the pics they posted on their website. The sheets and pillowcases were dirty and the room was cramped and tight. I would definitely not recommend anyone to stay there.
