Only stayed one night as this hotel is nothing like the photos. Room was dirty and didn't even want to shower there it was so gross. Even the lobby photos are inaccurate. For $200US a night I would expect more. Went down the road to the Pacific Beach hotel. Got a descent rate on Expedia, much nicer.

The pictures you see on the website are very deceiving. The rooms are dark with not much lighting options and very out dated. The floors did not have a rug, it made the room look empty with not so attractive tile. The bathroom was small with very old fixtures. No individual bath amenities with no storage space. There is no... More

We stayed 3 nights. The cost was affordable, and the breakfast was satisfactory. If you are wanting to stay near Waikiki Beach, this is a good place to be. The only frustration is the parking. Most likely, you will have to park a couple blocks away at a public parking garage connected to another hotel ($25 a day). If I... More

The hotel is pretty small and must be either a former apartment complex or dorm. The rooms are a bit cozy (small), but the price was affordable. The room had a modern tropical decor. It was in a convenient location (blocks from the beach, beach equipment rentals, eateries,shops). The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. They had beach... More

We took a 7 day cruise touring the 4 largest Hawaiian Islands. Since our cruise was starting in Oahu, we arrived as day early just in case our flight was delayed.
