This hotel was very clean, very convenient, and an excellent value. It's not 5 star, but it doesn't claim to be. The beach, shopping, restaurants, entertainment, etc, are all within walking distance. If you are looking for a centralized hotel at a value price, this is the place for you.

Location is fantastic. Right in the heart of Downtown. Everything is easily accessible by foot, including the beach. Marukame Udon, a world-class, cafeteria-style Japanese restaurant, is right across the street! Staff, and in particular, Dee, was amazing. Highly competent and warm. She took an immediate interest in our group, going above and beyond in ensuring our comfort. Would recommend based... More

The location was just a short walk from the beach, and very close to the shopping area. The hotel itself was okay - the rooms were rather outdated, everything looked old and a little run down but was clean. The construction was also a little noisy, but generally we had a good stay.

We stayed one night at this hotel before our cruise on Pride of America. Expected this to be an average hotel, and thats what it turned out to be. We had a corner suite, which was fairly large with 2 balconies. Everything in the room - from the mattress to the carpet and fixtures in the bathroom were quite tired.... More

This was a clean pleasant hotel with a pleasant staff. It was within walking distance of everything in Waikiki. We could walk to the beach, restaurants and sites. Clean, quiet and family oriented.

The location is good, close to the beginning and ending of the marathon (in case you are running it). The service was average, the room was OK for the price. There was a lot of noise because they where building another hotel or something in front. Most of the time the parking lot was full so you would have to... More

I have recently stayed in this hotel for 6 days with my family. It is nicely located 5 to 10 minutes from Waikiki beach , Kalikaua St and Royal Hawaiian centre. And that is about all. The rooms and hallways are worn down, front desk staff is cold polite at best, sometimes frankly rude. My daughter returned toilette key to... More

There is much construction going on right next door and all around this property. It was very noisy. The room was outdated and run down. Not worth it at all for the price we paid. There was no parking and we had to park several blocks away and then wait forever for the parking attendants at the other hotel to... More

We were vacationing in Honolulu during Christmas and New Year, and we could not get the same hotel for 3 nights straight. So we got this hotel for our last night there. For less than $200, we thought it could not be that bad for 3 stars hotel. Well, nothing is really good except the front desk people. The room... More
