Great staff, basic breakfast with make your own waffle and cereal, etc. Good value, a little less than average location for Waikiki (location further north than most hotels and surrounded by older high-rise residential apartments/condos. Good value. I am a business traveler and it was great for me. my room faced north (canal and mountains) which are probably the better... More

Perfect Location right near the beach,restaurants, shopping and public transport. Most friendly and helpful staff at the front desk who gave great advice on where to go and how to get around.

Aloha Kelly W, Thank you for your realistic review of our hotel. While our property is surrounded by many buildings obstructed views from our rooms are the norm. This however did not deter you and yours from having a fantastic stay which in turn resulted in a 5 star tripadvisor review! My staff and I will continue our top notch... More

Street access not great for managing your own bags and my so called upgraded room as in a crummy location in the hotel. They told me it was larger than other rooms but wasn't ever given an option - like higher room with view and quieter but smaller (I was only staying one night) vs bigger room and nothing else...

The biggest plus of this hotel was the staff and location. It is located a couple of blocks from the beach and a minute from shops, restaurants and bars. We arrived at 10am and as our room was not ready we were offered space to freshen up and towels to use the roof top pool. We opted to use the... More

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to other people! My best friend and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights this past march (2015). The rooms were newly renovated, other than the bathroom, which was still very functional! The rooms are small, but comfortable. The staff were SUPER friendly, and always helped out even when it wasn't necessary!... More

Great location - very close to the Waikiki beach, shopping strip etc. ABC store is across the road. Room Size - Not the largest factoring in luggage space Bed Size & Comfort - Ok at best! Wi-Fi - Good speed. But it's the staff that makes this simple hotel tick in my opinion. Super friendly and always willing to help.... More

Stayed for 6 nights and I found the place to be great. It was central to all major activities and obviously the beach was within walking distance. The rooftop pool although small was relaxing and quiet. The only negative thing I would say is that the rooms were'nt cleaned at a reasonable time. But overall the staff were bright and... More
