Pictures on the website of this Hotel don't tell the right story! I stayed here for 5 nights. Never again only once. If I had had my partner with me I would have checked out the same day. Toilet smelt of urine. Bed was hard, pillows too soft, door to balcony wouldn't shut properly, air con was very loud and... More

This place is a extremely old and dirty. The bathroom is disgusting. Do not stay here when visiting Honolu. It's a lot of money to stay at this disgusting place.it needs painting and rebuilding. It needs new furniture. The pool is disgusting and so is the elevator. It is nothing like the photos.

Was at this hotel July 1-3. How odd to have an old run down hotel across the street from some high-end stores. Seemed quite out of place. Location was good and the staff was helpful to some point. Parking is offsite about a block away and you park on the second lower level for $20 a night. Parking stalls are... More

I read reviews saying this place was old and not that great. I thought people were just being picky and I thought I could handle it. BUT, after going there, it is UNCOMFORTABLY OLD...like they should charge no more than $70 a night (I paid $130 a night) and that's pushing it. I have to say, the bed was actually... More

It's a bit of an old place, but I enjoyed it. It may need some fixing and upgrading but it's a nice place to stay when you're on a budget! And I wouldn't hesitate staying here again in the future. Probably the best location as its on the Main Street and in walking distance to all the main shops and... More

Great location but room is minimal. Toilet was broken for 2 days and wifi advertised on the internet failed to mention the cost. The hotel is located on the main road so unable to open doors to balcony without listening to sirens and car horns. Elevator was broken for a time during the visit as well so be prepared to... More

A very nice hotel with a great location. I was staying there for 2 nights and really enjoyed my time. The hotel was quite cheap compared to the other places I stayed at. The only bad thing was that the internet did not work at all and nobody fixed it.

Polynesian : We stayed at Polynesian for 8 nights and everything was fantastic. Staff very friendly and helpful, room absolutely clean, including the carpet which usually is a problem once hotels don't use to wash them. When we got the room the carpet had just been cleaned and was smelling very good! They clean the room once a day, so... More

Hotel was quite old, and the interior is a bit dated. But the staff are lovely and very helpful. The internet connection is pretty unreliable and frustrating at times but it's free so I guess you can't complain. Located only a block from the beach and it's right in the middle of heaps of shops and restaurants. Overall and nice... More
