Our first vacation to Hawaii and thought I would be ahead of the game by reading all the reviews of the different hotels in the area. We chose this location and knew that it was not going to be a premium 5 star hotel. The lobby area is beautiful when you arrive, but the rooms are in need of some... More

our Family of 4 enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Loved that it was right across from the beach, the zoo and fairly close to Diamond Head. We didn't have a car and found we could walk pretty well everywhere and if we went on an excursion we got picked up at the hotel or not very close by. We... More

After a particularly harsh winter, we decided we needed to get away and remember what warmth feels like and what green plants with flowers look like! Hawaii became our last minute vacation. We wanted a hotel with a good location, reasonably priced, near the beach, a lanai with a great view, near a bus stop/restaurants/shops and that had amenities like... More

We booked this hotel after looking at reports on tripadvisor and we are happy we did. The hotel is aging and probably needs new carpets etc but the price was good, the location fantastic, the room size was good and it overlooked the beach. The ensuite was a good size and the shower worked well as did the airconditioning, the... More

For those of us who can't afford the Royal Hawaiian, the Queen is an excellent alternative. Be sure to ask for a room with a Diamond Head view (it costs a little extra). We did, and the view of the mountain, park and zoo was great. And we had a lanai that even afforded some view of the ocean. We... More

This hotel is a great choice when traveling to Ohau! Just a block off Waikiki Beach, the location is great. While I first balked at the $25 a day "in/out" parking fee, I gladly paid it after trying to park in Honolulu! Trust me, just pay the money. Rooms, staff, view, all very nice! TOP NOTCH!

Instead of being crammed between inter blds, hotel adjacent to Queen Kapiolani Park and zoo, & right across st from ocean (most hotels are). QK lies on outer edge of hustle and bustle, still... More

The hotel name gives an impression that the hotel will be perfect. On arrival after midnight, being tired after a long flight, our first impression of the reception area was where is the bell boy to help carry the cases up the steps? Future days confirmed to us that all the bell boys were only interested in parking cars! The... More
