An expensive bargain

The good: location, price, generally clean room. The bad: located between two busy (noisy) streets, my room on the 9th floor was very loud, made worse because the sliding door was out of plumb and would not seal. Bathtub had mold around the edges. So, a tradeoff between price and quality of experience.

...there are better places in Honolulu for the same price...

When I arrived there I was a little bit disappointed because they charged me almost the same price as in other hotels close by and they offered less. I had to pay extra for the WiFi and the room was a little bit old. Anyways the location is great and you can easily walk to the beach from there.

Friendly staff though

Very very much traffic right outside the balcony. Never heard customers but the traffic was awful. No ocean view and no working ceiling lights. Bathtub was clogged up. If you're in Hawaii to party with friends this would work fine. To relax, chose something closer to the beach.

Great location, price

The location and price were what made me want to book my room here. It wasnt bad, but it does need that something extra...but all I really needed was a place to sleep and the beds were comfy. So overall Im glad I stayed. Parking was the only issue.
