We booked this thru Castle Resorts. Mistake.. I can't believe anyone even rated this property 3 stars. Old.. Ok, we can live with old if it's updated. The room we were in, which was charged as an ocean view kitchenette, was so small, the only seating was outside on the vey small balcony. Ocean view? We were facing the zoo... More

I recently spent one month holiday at this hotel. No one told me that on the second floor there was a gay bar called Hulas. So there was plenty of noise and action in the lounge with patrons going up to the bar?/!! The room that I rented had not been updated. It was your basic carpeted 1970s style with... More

I stayed at their studio,clean, cute space with a balcony that has beach view.It has a small kitchen but I didn't have time to use any of it. It's 5 minutes walk to the beach, quiet at night since it's not on the main shopping street. Starbucks right downstairs and tons of CVS for your personal needs. Wifi service was... More

An old property, with signs of renovation here and there. An effort is underway to sell off individual rooms as condos, therefore guests here may be renting someone's condo or a normal hotel room. Because it's old, the concrete jungle that is Waikiki has almost surrounded it and would have were it not for the fact that it's across the... More

We stayed in this building while renting a privately owned condo. As others have mentioned many of these rooms are privately owned and I believe in the future they will all be privately owned as I was told during my stay. We rented from a condo from VRBO and stayed on the 9th floor. The 9th floor is extremely quiet.... More

We stayed here one night on a layover and I must say it worked out ok for us. The location was perfect for us. We walked along the beach where the Royal Hawaiian is and it was a Friday night so there was lots of activity. There is a mall there where we had a wonderful meal. We were able... More

Rooms are small and there is no parking, but you are 1/2 block to the beach. The buses run constantly and are very affordable, or you can park across the street at the zoo or at the Banyan for $12 a day. This really is a great location.

We are glad you were happy with your stay here. Although I am a little surprised with your comment about parking. We have parking located on site. It is very rare that we do not have enough parking, but it does happen. We hope the parking wasn't too much of an inconvenience. More
