Disappointing

On arrival we needed to look at 3 rooms until we got one that did not smell stale and dirty, in all 3 rooms the bathrooms had long black hair in the shower, on the floor and around the toilet. The smell in the first 2 rooms was stale and unclean. The 3rd room was the best of the 3 however we needed to clean the bathroom ourselves the hotel was unfriendly, full of Japanese visitors who would not share a lift with anyone. No entertainment of any kind, the pool is in shade for the whole day, the area was not inviting to spend any time around the pool. The staff were ok to a point, however no one ever smiled and greeted you unless you smiled and them first. We had always thought that on arrival in Hawaii you would get a lai but nothing. The breakfast were expensive and not very suitable for the UK with rice and a soup being the main thing with some fruit and pancakes. The restaurant catered only for the Japanese pallatte

Never again

The lobby looks great and the staff was very nice, but that's it. The carpets look horrible, the room was outdated and smelled bad. The bathroom was moldy and I saw a cockroach crawling on the dresser! The sliding glass door rattled all night long and one of the lights didn't work. If I hadn't arrived so late, I would've found somewhere else to stay. I'm thankful it was just an overnight stay.

I wouldn't stay here again

The only good thing this hotel has going for itself is it's location. You walk out the door and it's one stop sign from the beach. Otherwise, the room was outdated, questionably clean, and had terrible lighting. Not any place I'd stay again.

Not a good choice 4 a long stay!!!

Not what I expected. Did not realize until checking in at the front desk that the voucher for the free continental breakfast had to be redeem through the online agency. No amenities offered complimentary by the hotel. Great location to the Waikkiki beach and shopping. Do not purchase internet,9.95 a day, through the hotel, there is free wifi internet service in the lobby of the hotel but you will have to take your laptop downstairs to connect. You will receive a better wifi rate in your room through the wifi service called,skywave,that pops up via your wifi on your computer.

its a short walk to buses or dining, i would not rent a car ,no need and the parking fees are high, you can catch a city bus for a few bucks,there are alot of homeless people around waikiki beachs ,bring sunscreen,lotion,sunglasses ,umbrella etc, if you forget ,there are 50 abc stores in every direction ,post office is a short walk at the international marketplace, atlantis lounge has great food,go before 7pm for special prices,try not to worry about planning ahead ,you can book anything imaginable when you arrive,dont buy the first souvenir you see,there are better deals just a block over if you look around,and the price is negotiable in most cases , unless you like to shop at macys or other dept stores alike
