I had read a lot of the reviews and ALMOST considered not staying here. MY FAMILY AND I JUST WANTED TO HANG OUT ON THE STRIP FOR A DAY. We checked in on Sunday and the adventure began. We called room service and they took care of our request immediately and also called to confirm if we were taken care... More

I did a lot of research of where to stay during my honeymoon. One of my main deciding factors was proximity to the beach and a second was cost. From what I found this hotel seemed to be about the cheapest for being close to the beach in Waikiki. And the beach is just across the street. Mind you the... More

Our flights changed @ last minute and we ( my wife and myself ) ended up about 8 hours earlier than planned. I called up the hotel from the airport and requested for my booked room. At no additional charge we got the room for an additional day and by the time we reached the hotel the room was ready.... More

When I booked the motel (resort) I was looking forward to a really nice stay. How wrong was I? It first started when my wife and I checked in. Or at least tried to check in. We arrived late and there was no customers at the reception desk. We were told by the rude and cold check in person there... More

I am shocked at the positive reviews. We must have hit them on a bad week ? We stayed 3 nights, we would have left earlier, but they refused to refund our money for the other 2 nights so had to stay. Parking/ Valet issues same as others have mentioned, and extremely small rooms, staff very rude, everything way over... More

This hotel has a great location, near high-end shopping, a swimming "pool" on the oceanfront, and one block from the Zoo. There is a 24 Hour Fitness gym located in the same block (I didn't check to see if it's the hotel gym or not - I was too tired as we were only there for one night). The rooms... More

The staff are very helpful. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left they have made my stays enjoyable. On my last visit, after experiencing 2 consecutive delayed flights and so arriving quite late and weary, the front desk was particularly helpful in tending to me. The location is great, room had a great view. More than happy... More

This was my first trip to Hawaii and it was the best! I hadn't booked any tours in advance so I was a bit worried, but the concierge at this hotel was amazing!!!! Facundo Carranza had the best attitude, advise and patience. I stayed for a week with my daughter and he booked all of our tours the same day.... More

The hotel is in a great location. The decor is a little outdated but that isn't all that important. It was clean and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not eat at the buffet but it smelled great every time we went by! We got awesome massages at the spa! The beds were the most comfortable... More
