Stayed at The Hokele for 4th of July weekend 2014 and it is an average older place with very spacious rooms but.....the buffet in the building should really be shut down. The food wasn't cooked fresh at all. We came across spoiled tofu and eggs for breakfast smh what a horrible way to start the day. When I pointed out... More

They won't let me in; not 1 minute before 3:00 pm. Upgraded up, yes. But the ordinary rooms - no. What a coincidence! That is pathetic!!! Talk about attitude towards me - whew. And I am sooooooh nice and friendly! The first rule of customer relations is: BE NICE!!! To everyone!!!

I stayed in room #642. Jocelyn the housekeeper was really nice. She did an excellent job of cleaning and organizing my room. I had a problem with the shower drain. She immediately called maintenance and they promptly came to open the drain. Jocelyn was friendly, alive, and professional! I would love to be back again.
