Noisy, falling apart dated hotel

Maybe back in the day this might have been a decent place, But everything about it is old and falling apart. You need to guess what floor your on, the elevators show 3rd floor at lobby. The Restaurant / Bar is a complete dirty dive and no reason to ever go into it. No matter what floor your on, the street noise sounds like it is in your room. Oh, the still have old tube TV's and terrible reception. Also beware if you book online, When you get there they want a $300 deposit as if there is anything you could do to worsen this place !

Standard facilities, good staff

I had need of special accommodation, e.g., early registration, change in length of stay, room needs, etc., and the desk staff went above and beyond to work things out. Hotel was clean, room utilitarian.

Local Spot to stay

The location is convinient to access, right at the begining of Waikiki, yet close to major shopping locations. Park was a breeze with the valet service. The room was clean, comfortable, and had the old local atmosphere but the bathroom could use an upgrade. If your looking for a place that is comfortable and afordable, this is the spot for you.

Nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Friendly ohana taking care of us. They were very accommodating, especially as we had checked in late after our workshop. Made us feel comfortable.

Great Location

Practically right across the street from the beach, near the Hawaii Convention Center, within easy walking distance of all the best restaurants and shopping that Waikiki has to offer, easy check-in and check-out.

Decent place for "paradise"

We were moving and this was a one night stay while I waited for a hotel that takes pets. It was clean, reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Great place if your not looking for brand new with extras. It was close to night life and only a couple blocks from the beach but be prepared to pay 18.99 a day for parking which is not included in the price. But for that price you can come and go as you please all day.
