TERRIBLE. Our room with a kitchenette had COCKROACHES in it. We were finding them for an hour after seeing the first FIVE - two of which being in the Microwave. It was late and we had already bought our groceries to cook but the front desk staff said they had no other rooms with kitchen available that night and only... More

The hotel is in an amazing location. Walking distance to the Waikiki night life and shops. You walk into the lobby and the setup is beautiful. Everything is upgraded and new. The pool area is small and old but since really? you're not gonna go to Hawaii and spend your days by the pool so I'm not gonna complain on... More

We (2 couples) stayed here en-route from Alaska to Australia. The room smelt mouldy, the air conditioner was an old window rattler and we were encouraged to keep the verandah door closed and locked, hence precluding any fresh air. The hotel is in a handy location and the breakfast buffet was excellent value for money. Staff were also very helpful.

This hotel was AWESOME. The staff were all very accommodating, the rooms and bathrooms were clean, and we had a great view of the Waikiki strip. The beds were a bit small, I think they were doubles. Parking was expensive at $25 per day, but we had 4 of us in our group so we just split it and it... More

We booked a room with a kitchenette. When we got to the room the kitchen was crawling with bugs. We complained and got a much nicer "penthouse" unit which had been renovated. It was much nicer, with no bugs. Some floors in this hotel are renovated while others are very outdated and shabby. Location is nice, but rather noisy with... More

My family stayed here for several nights in April 2015. While the lobby is gorgeous, the rooms are sadly outdated. The curtains were shredded, the bathroom had no fan or ventilation, and the balcony had lots of mildew. The location and service were great. Short walk to the beach through the park. No ironing board or iron in the room,... More
