If you want to be close to Waikiki beach this is a great hotel to stay. The hotel is located pretty much in center Waikiki. Close to beach, shops, restaurants etc and I guess the hotel does fair price considering the area. The room is ok however we missed a place to sit outside, so if you'd like that remember... More

Although the rooms leave much to be desired, they are basic and functional. The best part of this hotel are the ladies at the front desk. They are incredibly warm, friendly and really feel like family. It's a funky little hotel but more suited to people without kids. Thank you to that amazing staff here!!!

Stay Hotel isn't luxurious and far from a resort however it's exactly what's needed for a person to rest their head and unwind before the next island adventure. Clean, friendly and super hospitable. 1 block from the beach, ABC store a hop skip and a jump away, The Bus stops within 3 min walk. Close enough to the main drag... More

Location is very good, very close to the beach and they provide you beach towels and other beach stuff. Don´t expect confort or luxury, the rooms are very simple, with very bad light conditions at night and some noise. The staying may include a simple breakfast but you barely will have a place to sit while eating because they serve... More

Disappointing place. Reminded me of cheap backpacking hotels in Thailand -though admittedly without lizzards on the walls and bugs in the bathroom. But still, not worth the price. Not a boutique hotel in any way. It's all a bit shabby and feels cheap. Stayed two nights in different rooms. Tiny bathrooms with below average showers. Cold tile floors, cable clutter.... More

Don't expect luxury, but if you want somewhere clean with basic amenities, this is the place for you! One block back from the beach, easy walking distance from Waikiki and all it has to offer. Parking was costly at $30 a day-to-day but that's to be expected in this area. Would highly recommend if you're in Oahu to explore. If... More

The hotel is 1block from the beach, that was awesome, the staff is very friendly made the stay worth it. Great Mexican across the street from CVS, and the people that work there was also very friendly... Great Margarita's!!!!

I would describe this hotel hostel-esque, except with private bathroom/shower in the room. The absolutely hands-down best thing about this hotel is that it is right in Waikiki, literally a block away from the Waikiki beach & Kalakaua Ave that has all the shops, restaurants, & the huge shopping plazas, all while being less than a third of the price...

Stayed here for a week in April. The pictures are a bit deceiving as the hotel is a little run down. The positives include the great location, the friendly staff and the comfy beds. There were a few negatives. The room we were in was a good size, but it was in need of a decent clean and some renovations.... More

We booked a 2 twin bed room for a week. We knew about the $25 a day parking fee but they had no place for us to park. The room was super small there was about 18 in. Between the beds that are agenst the walls. No night stands just a square shelf on the wall that had the phone... More
