Nothing fancy in terms of décor or other amenities such as pool etc. but very clean and accessible. Friendly staff (particularly Harry on the front desk) made the stay enjoyable. Good location with food stores, eateries and beach all within walking distance and bus tour pickups very close by. Coin operated laundry, small fridge in room and free wifi make... More

The rooms were very basic and outdated, but clean. Which is all you can expect when on a budget. The location was great, Starbucks just a 5 meter walk on the corner which opens at 4.30am! Which was perfect as we were up at 5am most mornings preparing for our activities. The standout was the friendly staff who went above... More

It is a nice, simple place to stay. It doesn't have as much as other hotels but it was good since most of the time we were out and about and only used the hotel to sleep. It was nice and close to everything, and the staff were all extremely helpful.

Me and my friend stayed here after it being recommended by flight centre. The first day we arrived, without even sleeping in the beds yet, the sheets were disgusting and stained, so we called reception for them to be changed. The new sheets still were gross but we decided to just put up with it as we were super tired... More

The rooms were a bit outdated but clean, the beds very comfortable, no outlook at all but made up with a great location with walking distance to Waikiki Beach, shops and restaurants. Really can't fault it.

This hotel is what it is, and I am thankful for that. It is a very fairly priced hotel, which is dated and dingy, but with all of the amenities that you need to enjoy a vacation at Waikiki: Refrigerator, microwave, beach towels, reasonably priced parking, and a great, central location. The staff were super-nice, and very accommodating. When we... More

The toilet was blocked, the lights didn't work in our room, the safe battery was dead so we couldn't put any valuables in it.. it was super NOISY so we had barely any sleep as it is right next to a busy street and bus stop. The defining moment is that they called our room phone at 12am on the... More

We stayed in a junior suite for our trip to hawaii after Flight Centre recommended this hotel. Walking into the room its dark and smells musty. There are stains on the carpet including one that looks very similar to blood. We had to call the front desk to get our sheets changed as there were stains all over them before... More

The room was very good and it felt like home. There was a full kitchen, 2 bedroom, and one master bedroom bathroom. The price was less than 100$, it was a special. Parking lot is in the front or garage for $26. We really enjoyed our stay. The ac worked great and rooms were clean. We didnt have time to... More

The hotel is "no frills" but was in a great spot with clean rooms and helpful staff. We got upgraded to a larger suite (way bigger than we needed) which certainly helped our experience. Nevertheless, we were there for 2 days and had a convenient walk to the beach, shopping and eating as well as convenient to the bus to... More
