Very friendly like family I stay here quite often. They always work with me and fill every request. Never spend more at other places it is worth twice what they charge because it feels very personal. Mahalo

the waterfront location in the middle of the ironman triathalon action is great. the price is way below other hotels in the area for a nice clean room.

Quiet & convenient

When I arrived early they did there best to accomodate me. Getting the room ready after my long day of travel was a plus. The receptionist took care of me in 30 minutes. That's top notch service.

Max needed R & R

The rooms were clean, the staff helpful, the views were beautiful. The food was great. However someone backed into the car in the parking lot and broke out a headlight.

Friendly, Clean, and Convenient

This was my second stay at this hotel -- the last time was over 4 years ago. I was glad to see that the hotel looks just as good as it did before and I was quickly reminded how friendly and helpful the staff are. It's not a fancy hotel, just very well kept and efficient -- perfect for going out during the day to explore the island.

Good location for getting around

Staff lovely, friendly. Bed too soft, pillows too hard, sheets too short, but clean. Ocean is warmer than the pool! Restaurant cooking smells drift towards hotel, too smelly outside. Location for walking to shops, etc is good. Will consider a condo next time for conveniences such as eating in.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Rent a scooter to purchase items from Costco or Target or Safeway-walk to these is far, uphill and way too hot any time of the day!
