We booked our one night stay due to an overnight layover. It was on the back end of our trip and until the hurricane/tropical storm, we originally had no plans to stay in or see Oahu. But anyway, we paid very little for our room due to an online deal. Loved the location. The staff was very friendly and also... More

I checked in and instantly knew that I was in for a scary experience... When I got into my room I looked in the bathroom and there were 5 roaches in there... I understand that this hotel is on the less expensive side but I paid enough not to have an infestation on my hands...

This hotel is THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! See my scathing review of White Castle or whatever it's called in Waikiki. It was a NIGHTMARE. Back to STAY. My husband and I LOVE STAY. We are going to be repeat offenders. They are so adorable they offer you beach chairs and boogie boards at the front desk. The bar/food... More

I booked this hotel, pre-paid (no refunds) for a 4-night stay during summer 2014. The "hotel rooms" looked like dorm rooms; terrible for their over ~$200/night. I found FOUR full-sized COCKROACHES in my room in 2 days. The only response I got from the front desk was "this is tropical Hawaii - it is normal to have cockroaches". The front... More

From the moment I stepped into the lobby I knew I was about to experience one of those vacations where what I saw online was not the same as in person. They appeared to have attempted to make the hotel better with some paint but the room I stayed in looked like the guy who painted it was 5 years... More

Anybody travelling on a budget should not be having high expectations about hotel stay. But now when you advert and promise beautiful and spacious room and the guest gets there and find out everything was photoshopped, the big room was a tiny one actually, those nice colors were enhanced and photoshopped, disappointment and anger take place. Management shouldnt be surprised... More

This is not The Ritz. You get what you pay for. Do you want luxury, choose another hotel. If you can' t sleep with noice. Bring earplugs or choose a hotel on the countryside. This is Waikiki. It' s never quiet. We stayed at Stay for 11 days i july. We are satisfied. We read on Tripadvisor and didn' expect... More

We booked this hotel for one night, primarily for location. It is only a block from the beach and down town shopping. The website looked good and the room pictures are way over photo shopped so it is deceiving. Overall with exception to location and the friendly staff this hotel is by far the worst I have stayed at especially... More

We chose this hotel mainly because of the price since we were on a budget. The location was great, it was a tiny block away from the beach. You could find everything around that area, and the bus stops were about a block or two away as well. If you went on tours they usually picked you up in the... More

The only thing positive about this hotel is the location and, for that reason alone, I would stay there again. However, I am not bothered by bugs which were everywhere in the room/bath. If bugs bother you, this is not your hotel. Our room/bath was very small and do not have any dressers for clothes so we just lived out... More
