If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel to stay near Waikiki I would recommend it. As far as looks go, it is not much to look at (a little rough around the edges). Also the surroundings are less than picturesque. There were a lot of homeless people near the entrance, that made it a little scary. The elevators to... More

This was certainly not the worst place I have ever stayed but "no frills" would be an understatement for the condition of the rooms. The carpets and curtains were pretty gross but the rest of the room, including the bed was clean enough. We booked the hotel despite some negative reviews because we just needed one night between flights and... More

I stayed in this hotel to pick up my daughter and bring her back home for the summer. This is a "minimalist" hotel. No bells or whistles come with your room. A simple window unit AC, a bed, tiny television, and an older shower. It is a condo/hotel, and the hotel elevators are seperate from the condo elevators. The best... More

This hotel is located is located in Waikiki but on the outskirts. Not much noise and traffic passing by. The rooms are very clean and more than we expected for our two night stay. The property is petty well kept too. You have a few food choices on property including a convenience store. If none of them appeal to you... More

I booked a trip to Waikiki and decided to spontaneously hotel hop for the trip. I walked up to the front desk and asked if she has one room with a king size bed for the night and she said she did. She took my credit card, gave me my key and headed up to the room. The room was... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on a recent trip to Honolulu and were pleased with the budget style accommodation located in downtown Waikiki. The rooms are reasonably spacious with a fridge, microwave, tv and coffee maker. The fridge in particular is helpful for storing water and juice. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean....

If you are a hotel snob and will write bad reviews about the bed, carpet, drapes, and lack of granite counters in the bathroom, then don't stay here. Please. It's not for you. BUT - if you are looking for a great deal, the perfect location to shops, Waikiki, Ala Moana, and fantastic views from your room, then you should... More

This is an older hotel, the carpet is faded from the sun and the shower squeaks. But it is clean.This is Hawaii not midwest US, cheap hotels are still trying to do everything to have repeat customers. And how much time are you planning on spending inside while visiting Hawaii anyways? The staff was mostly friendly, they gave plenty of... More
