I stayed in this hotel for three nights while visiting Oahu. It is not new, it is not fancy. My room was clean, and quiet, and being on the 22nd floor, I had a nice view of Honolulu. Since I was staying by myself, this hotel suited me just fine. I would not try to impress anyone such as a... More

This is by far the worst hotel I've stayed at. And I've stayed at a lot of hotels. The only reason for staying there is because most other hotels were up to occupancy. For starters, the hostess at the desk was rude. There are a couple of shops near the lobby and the whole area smells like old fried food.... More

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....
