The location is great. The hotel is just at Waikiki road and beach. We had booked a room with a kitchen but she upgraded us to a bigger room with no kitchen but it worked. She just tried to be nice! Good value for the money. No romantic honeymoon but for budgettravellers or backpackers it is a great option, a... More

Checkin staff were very nice. They even let us check in 3 hours early for no additional fee. We wish we had stayed here longer. This is a small boutique hotel. I was quite surprised how good this place was, well for Honolulu anyway, as things here seem to be 20-40% more expensive than anywhere else in the US (excluding... More

I stayed 7 nights with my family. This hotel is very close to famous Waikiki beach and close to major shopping centres. Where can you get a 2 b/r fully a/c apartment with living room and fully equipped kitchen for $120 a night plus taxes in the peak season? AC in every room. TV in one b/r and in living... More

We were here for two nights starting Thanksgiving Day 2013. This hotel is right in the middle of the Waikiki Beach area, so very convenient, though the sign is very small and tucked between two retail stores, so keep an eye peeled or trust your GPS. Parking is a bit of a hassle, but it's also pretty scarce, so $20... More

Budget hotel in its finest form. Got into town late, slept in clothes, didn't take off shoes, didn't use shower, checked out and spent a few more bucks to stay at Mirimar. Carpets were very dirty. No parking available, period. Parked eleven blocks away, rolled the luggage the whole way. The staff was very nice. Didn't charge us for leaving,... More

I'm just waiting for our shuttle after a 6 day stay in this nice hotel. Get ready for some very minor bumps though once you check in. First, there is no lobby. Just go straight into the pool and that's where you check in. Then there's this rickety old elevator and there is only one. And then you settle in... More

Our three-week stay at your place was the perfect location. The main purpose of our trip was for my mother's medical appointments, and going back to Waikiki from the hospitals and dialysis unit every day just resets the mood! :-) The staff were very friendly and courteous, and I have already recommended your place to a few of the frequent...

Upon arrival we tried to find out where to park for a while, ended up calling, their parking garage is about a block away, and not theirs. You have to pay an extra $20/day to park a car there. The room was meh. The place smelled funny, lots of traffic noise. No fan in the bathroom. The "king" bed was... More
