A Great Disappointment

We were given a room which was smelly, with a carpet stained in several places and very visible, not something which you could pass up,in other words DIRTY It made you feel like looking to see if the sheets were dirty too. Fortunately, they were not. The bed was BAD Old mattress, sagging with no support at all. We fought all night to keep on each other's side. And we are not heavy. All in all it was a fiasco not to be repeated. Most emphatically, it was not worth the price even reduced.

Great staff, but building sucks

Ceiling falling off in bathroom, plumbing backs up daily, staff snakes daily. Night time plumbing girgles, you find sewer dirt in bath/shower in the morning. One lamp did not work, had to use facecloth as wedge to keep chest drawer closed.

R & R retreat

Bumpy check in. The receptionist seemed disturbed that I wanted to upgrade my room and kept me waiting a long time. Once in the partial ocean view room, which wasn't very clean but it was comfortable. The vent in the bathroom didn't work and the bath and sink didn't drain. The maintenance men came and repaired the drains. It seems that regular maintenance and cleanliness checks are needed in the hotel. The public areas were nice although even first thing in the morning the carpets were dirty. The Pool on the weekend was like a city public pool, probably only 10 percent there were paying guests, it was impossible to access the spa as there were so many nonpaying guests in it!

decent hotel

Room is average sized. pool is COLD (not great in winter months). Food is mediocre. Was disappointing that we came on our honeymoon and were given a room with 2 beds. Forget that we got no upgrades, but they couldn't even accommodate us with a room with one bed. Short of it, mediocre place with plenty of other mediocre places nearby that were much cheaper and more in the heart of the city.

Very Dirty

The room smelt of sewer when we arrived. The bedspreads were very old and faded. The view was great, but the chairs on the lanai were bent, and rusting. The furniture in the lobby and the guest laundry was filthy. Carpeting was also very dirty. The hairdryer in the room did not work, altho the staff did give us another to use. I do understand that there are new owners and maybe thinks will improve. There was no printer for the computer so we could not print out our boarding passes. I have stayed there in the past and was very, very disappointed in the property. The location is perfect, tho.!

Rooms need an uplft!

Rooms were dark and outdated. There was a musty smell and it didn't look clean. When choosing this hotel, the picture shown was of their renovated rooms, which I thought we would be in. A little deceiving, but they said that after August 2009, all rooms will be renovated. So, might give it another try...

So-So trip to Hawaii

Hotel was nice, but under re-construction. Staff was very pleasant. Did NOT appreciate having to pay $10.40 per day for parking. Scheduled luau @ King Kamehameha, but was sent some 20 miles down the highway to Sheraton, with no compensation or explaination. Most upset with Hotel which charged us $25.00 for a two hour late check out, which was necessary after snorkle trip. That's rediculous! I would not recommend this Hotel to anyone!!
