Great last minute find!

It's location is good enough for the dollar amount I'm paying , found also at the last moment on the weekend too! I wish they'd provide hand lotion, toothpaste and brush though. It would be better if a breakfast is included for that price.

The Good and Bad

The hotel was Average for the price, but the hallways were very smelly and the room window air conditioner was very noisy and couldn't control the temperature setting. Location of the hotel was good.

afforadble stay in waikiki

The staff was incredibly helpful!! My husband and I stayed there for over a week but only rented a car for a few days to see the things on the other side of the island. The location of the hotel is perfect for getting on and off of the bus and the staff was always helpful with directions and with information in general. Our room was just average, it reminded me of the budget places my family stayed in when we were traveling as children. We didn't go to HI to stay in the hotel though either, so this hotel fit our needs just fine. The pool is small but not many people use it and the laundry machines are really old and a bit temperamental. The ice machine was on a different floor. While we stayed on the 14th floor it was still surprisingly noisy outside at night with all the police sirens and what not. However, the price made it so that we could afford to do more fun things while in HI and we had a fantastic trip.

Not best experience i've had

A good location for a one or two nights trip to Honolulu. Trams for sighiseeing and public transport to the airport right at your front door.But the internet acces is at a business center on third floor, not in your room. No free continental breakfast,even when you show a voucher, had to pay 13$ for a low standard us one. The front desk is not very helpful
