I was in Honolulu in March, as my fourth trip. Once in 2008, In 2012 with my son, 2013 where I surrendered my appendix to Hawaii, and most recent March 2015. I am 65. Could someone adopt me. I was made for Hawaii. Perfect climate, friendly people, palm trees, gentle breezes, sand, beach, sun, kayak, snorkel and love the atmosphere.

We had the unfortunate experience of seeing a staff member bullying another. A man by the name of Jeff was being extremely rude and unprofessional to a lady he was working with (she seemed new). He was belittling her and almost had her in tears! And infront of customers! We felt extremely sorry for her as she was lovely. The... More

While this hotel is old, it's location and price are good for travelers. 5 minute walk to the beach. Kitchens available to assist in overall vacation cost reduction (cook your own food). Easy access to highways for travel around island. Beds are not too comfortable and the paint is peeling in places. Overall, while not a 4 star hotel, our... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week in Honolulu. I'm sure there's more modern looking hotel rooms in Waikiki but the staff was very friendly and the rooms stayed clean. They even give you a water bottle and access to clean water through out your stay. I'd stay again!

Aloha Naytuhshay, I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and our eco-friendly water bottles. Living in Hawaii is beautiful and we like knowing our re-usable water bottles decrease our footprint and will help to keep Hawaii GREEN! A hui hou, Adrian More

I have not stayed at this hotel, but I just have to say that the resort fee is becoming quite standard in Hawaii...just as it already is in Vegas. You cannot be upset with a hotel for your own inability to read the fine print when booking your own travel online. People need to stop acting as if they have... More

Expedia gave me false information about my room accommadations but the manager in reservations did everything possible to make things right without any extra chage. My 9 night stay was great. It is a wonderful value for the budget conscious guest.

descent location close enough to the beach and a Kuhio shops, Clean hotel, sufficient facilities, overpriced parking, timely house keeping No bells or whistles come with your room. A simple window unit AC, a bed, tiny television, and an older shower.over all i would recommend and i would stay there again,

$96 + $22 resort later from hotels.com, I could have booked a higher class hotel than this Motel 6 with a ridiculous resort amenity fee that states the following as perks: - Free local and toll free calls - A water bottle to fill because there's no free water - In room safe - Cutting edge Internet - Laundry facility...
