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

This hotel is really a hole in the wall. Drove past the entrance 3 times before we found it. The rooms were small along with everything else. The AC barely worked, the toilet was right against the wall and door, the elevators were small, and the staff was friendly, but not very knowledgeable.

I booked my room over a month in advance and when I arrived, they had no rooms available. Nobody from the hotel ever decided to contact me before I arrived that they overbooked. The front desk person didn't know what to do and after over two hours of waiting they finally put me into another hotel. All of the rooms... More

What a score! I couldn't have been happier with my choice, having never been to the Wakiki area. Booked the room on Hotels.com for $109 a night. ( 2 queen beds+kitchenette) It was clean, they have staff 24° a day, washer and dryer on every floor, A/c, pool, lounge deck. BEST PART is the location. It's right next to the... More

We were travelling with friends. We wanted to show them a great holiday without blowing all our budgets. This place I recommend. It isn't the hilton! BUT...beds are comfortable, we had a balcony with street view of an evening we sat out there had a few drinks. It was roomy. The kitchen is old but fully equipped, the bathroom is... More
