This hotel is really outdated and the hotel rooms were not cleaned properly. We found men's shorts in the closet that did not belong to us! The service is terrible. A guest service agent, Frank was very rude to us and did not explain any hotel information when we checked in. I have stayed at several hotels in Waikiki and... More

Booked a trip to Honoulu to be with my boyfriend for new years. I called the hotel with a couple of requests, and spoke to Dee. Dee is amazing.

The room was a comfortable size for a family of 4......however the balcony looked very unsafe.....no locking system, just a latch on the glass door and not at all safe for families with young children.
