Bang for the Buck

I came for a business trip and scheduled for a standard bedroom, which fortunately got upgraded to a studio overlooking the pool. It was a gorgeous! It had everything and more a person would need for a mere weekend stay-- hard wood floors, dining table, full oven range, microwave, full bath, digital flat screen tv, and two full-sized beds. My, was I FULL of grateful surprises. I arrived rather late in the evening, and there was not much options to eat. However, Denny's was only a few steps away. Though, the lobby/bar was even closer! This hotel was very convenient to all I needed on the trip-- general store, food, shops, beach, and a an immediate escape out of Waikiki. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

loved everything about this hotel....

The hotel was very nice for someone on a budget. Beautiful pool, friendly staff, nice bar and resturant, and computer room. Beautiful location by the Ala Wai. Did have some noise from sirens now and then, but think the city is cleaning up the riff raff and making it more accomadating and safe for us all. Would deffinately stay again and loved the staff and beautiful view of the Ala Wai and Diamond Head from room.

Friendly staff

Wanted to keep to a tight budget so looked for location, continental breakfast and fridge in room. Checked reviews and pictures. *** Can't depend on either! *Location not too bad as far as being close to beach- easily walkable to beach and museums, but on the edge of not so nice part of town- (female) wouldn't feel comfortable walking by myself at night.Not knowing the city- was not sure of location. Lots of trash and junk on sidewalks in area. And although there probably isn't ANY place in the city that is quiet- the windows did nothing to keep sound out. Very noisy. *Staff was very pleasant, helped with many questions about buses and directions, eager to make guest happy- they even switched rooms for us with no hesitation (because first assigned room was not very clean- carpet filthy and tacky- room very musty). *The rooms are small and need a good deal of heavy cleaning, some repair of tile, walls, etc... and a fresh coat of paint. No evidence of bugs. They always left clean towels, but did not replace used glasses in washroom. Plenty of storage space and hanging space. Small fridge did the job. Coffee maker in room but charge for coffee after the first night! Beds adequate, old, a little firm and had plastic mattress covers under thin sheet. Did have a balcony- but too small to really sit out on and furniture was dirty and uncomfortable, and if you sat down - couldn't see over rail. *Did feel plenty secure in hotel. *WikiWiki breakfast was toast, croissant, canned pineapple, juice and coffee. No decaf. Didn't eat at the restaurant- but selection looked pleasant and prices reasonable. Would probably not stay there again. I don't need luxury- but do need clean and comfortable. Another family member (same week) stayed at another hotel (booked on this site)for less and it was much nicer all around- area, room, amenities, also their room key gave free access to trolleys! Live and learn. Over all, it was not "horrible"- just not good.
