Great place, great price

Desk service was very friendly. The parking attendant was friendly and fast. This made going out shopping and returning to hotel to unload very easy during the day. The location of the hotel made it very enjoyable to walk through Waikiki at night, very safe feeling.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Walking the Waikiki street at night reminded me of Las Vegas. It was very lively and many street performers, even an american idol hopeful, she was excellent.

Good location for the price

cheap place to stay if you are not going to be in the room much.Don't expect much from the front desk personnel.[...] at the tour desk will be MUCH more helpful with things you should be told by them, such as they have a Hospility room where you can put your luggage and even rest and shower if your plane does not leave untill later than 11:00A.M. check out time.We explained our situtation to them and they charged us for another whole day even tho we only needed to be there a few more hours.They don't tell you you can get your pool towels there.[...] informed us of this also.Our overall experience with the front desk was the worst I have seen.Don't bother me was the air they gave off.

Very Satisfied

Okay, so this isn't the most luxurious hotel out there. But with that in mind, how much time are you really spending in your room in Waikiki? The standard room is somewhat small, although the beds are comfortable. The staff was very friendly, helpful and took care of our needs quickly. Located one block from Kohio and four blocks from the beach, this became a good base to start our days from.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The hotel's continental breakfast consisted mostly of toast and yogurt. Figure on buying your breakfast if you wish for something more substantial.

Worth The Cost

For it's very affordable cost, it was worth every penny. The location is great, right on the canal and 1 block away from a great grocery store! Like I said, for what you pay for, it's absolutely great! If you pick this hotel, you obviously are trying to budget, and just because you budget doesn't mean it's worth it, but this is definitely worth it!

Our trip.

I was hardly at the hotel. I was at the beach, took the Pearl Harbor tour, parasailed, jet skiied, and snorked. The room and the bed were not big enough. The itinerary was bad. There was a three hour wait for one flight. The transportation to and from the airport was average because it barely got us there in time. The flights were confusing in that we did not know what airline to check in at.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a travel company that is not a time share that does activities at a discount. We were picked up at the hotel for parasailing, snorkeling, and jet skiing.
