My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights, the location is excellent for the price since you're still on the main strip of Kalakakua but at the end of the strip. A McDonald's is right on the corner and Waikiki Beach is just across the street, along with a nice cafe located inside the hotel. Everything is in walking... More

This hotel is king of the hidden costs. You are required to pay a compulsory amenity fee of $US20 a day for use of all the advertised complimentary services. Internet, swimming pool, tennis court, golf nets are all advertised within the hotel as complimentary, but you have to pay a fee to use the complimentary services. Parking is not free... More

Great little room, recently renovated and had an awesome view of diamond head. Very comfortable and friendly staff.as an added bonus my room was ready by 11am which I was very thankful for as I was suffering from jet lag. The only drawback, long waits for the elevator. The amount of people coming in on each floor was annoying. Not... More

Excellent location with a wonderful restaurant and great views of the Pacific Ocean Sunsets. A great value for the location although the hotel is older than most others it is charming, clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful to whatever your needs are. Language is not a barrier.

Very comfortable bed with an amazing oceanfront view. Staff was friendly. Certainly not five star and a bit dated but great for the price. Like I said super comfy bed and an amazing view! Excellent location right across the street from Waikiki beach, restaurants and attractions are within walking distance.

No complaints as a whole. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean. All of the staff were very friendly. I think the hotel needs a facelift but that's about it. The beach is straight across the road and the hotel is down the end of Kalakaua Avenue where all the shops are so you get a nice long walk... More

We toured Hawaii for 2 weeks so have lots to compare with... This hotel is terrible.
