Awesome short walk to Waikiki beach.

I liked the stay in the Hotel it was my thirty time already. Close by beach,shops and so on. Quiet location. Friendly and helpful staff. Did not like to be charged for the Playstation. I am not a game player. Never used it. Should be charged only when somebody want to use it.

Stayed while looking for an apartment

The hotel met expectations for the most part. It was nice and the staff was friendly. The kitchenette in the room was very convenient. The only real inconvenience was that there is no wifi in the rooms. If requested they will set up a single wired connection in your room. I imagine that for people vacationing this is not a big problem. Unfortunately, we were looking or apartments, cars, etc., and needed to use the internet quite often and on multiple devices.

good value

A little out dated and not too difficult to access. Could have been nicer if the faucet in bath had not dripped.

Good value for your money

Stayed there on 2 separate trips. The first one was really nice and hence, we chose the White Sands for the second trip which turned out to be just an okay experience. We had the pool/courtyard view for the first trip. Really enjoyed the tropical breeze sneaking through the vent and the serenity of the courtyard. On the second trip, we had street view and it wasn't anything close to the pleasant experience we had with the first one. Only recommend this hotel for the pool/courtyard view.

Our trip to Hawaii

The hotel is somewhat dated as there is no elevator (we were on the second floor). The room accommodated my wife, myself and our teenage granddaughter quite well. The staff at the front desk were very helpful as they answered all of our questions including how to get around on Ohau's city bus service. The room was cleaned up each day by the friendly staff. In today's market, we got good value for our money.

You can do better

Wifi that we paid for didn't work in the rooms and barely worked from the balconies. The pool was closed. People were shouting late at night. The cleanliness of the room was evident from the clinical lighting. On the plus side, location was great. In hindsight we'd probably look elsewhere next time.

Beach trip w/ friends

Not a bad place to go for cheap , don't expect a good view on the balcony , me n a few friends went and had requested a extra bed , had 3 beds at no extra $. Only like 3 blocks from the beach . If you plan on spending a lot of time in the room go elsewhere

One of the things I didn't like from this hotel was the lack of parking spaces and that I had to reserve a space once available for $25 dollars daily.

Cockaroch hotel

The rooms have many cockroaches and the guy working didn't help with my simple requests and changed our rooms three times. Parkings are very limited, 12 stalls, so we had to park at another hotel across the street and walk over, very inconvenient.
