We stayed here for two nights, which we are glad it was only this long. We got put in this small room. It had other peoples hair on the floor, as the floor is tiled is not hard to see. There was a couple of cockroaches . The bathroom was so so with the bath not so clean. They had... More

When we arrived, the desk lady told us that the room price was NOT the one advertised on booking.com, but there was an extra MANDATORY 20$ for breakfast and wireless. This is always SO disappointing. The breakfast was TERRIBLE and since they deduce the breakfast price from the 100$ security deposit they force you into paying the extra fee. This... More

The staff here is wonderful. So many pleasant, accommodating people. The rooms are very basic, so if you're looking for a "hotel" experience, this isn't it. Continental breakfast is good, and generous. Overall, very good value place.

This hotel is an old refurbished apartment building. It is only okay. There are jalousie windows that cover tye entire wall so there is no kindmof view at all. The bed was decent and it is close to the beach. It would not be good for families or senior travellers. The shower dripped loudly, and the towel rack is positioned... More

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.

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
