The reception was very, very friendly and nice. Our room was basic, offered everything we needed, but had some drawbacks: It was to the street side and somewhat noisy at night (cars, deliveries in the morning). Bathroom tube was in desperate need for renovation. The walk to Waikiki Beach is 10 min. We booked this room as we got an... More

We booked a room with a Kitchenette so we could have breakfast and coffee each morning and dinners most evenings. The hotel is older but kept nice and clean with hard wood floors which made for a nice look. The room had 2 lanai's and was about 2 blocks from the beach with a nice walk through the park across...

Although it is close to everything downtown Waikiki, I would avoid this dated hotel. Lobby is nice, people are nice, however the hallways/rooms are horrible! I flew in from Alaska, yes, almost a 6hr fight. I was tired and simply didn't care. Otherwise, I would have demanded a refund and left! I stayed one night. The bathroom is disgusting! Peeling...

This hotel is really old. They have done some cosmetic repairs to rooms but it's just lipstick. Hallways smell. Not close to the fun part of waikiki even though it is two blocks to the beach. If you are coming on vacation pay a little more for a nice room close to the excitement.

A great hotel for those on a budget,in a great location opposite Fort DeRussy park and beach.Located on the apex of Kuhio and Kalakaua avenues,it's fairly noisy with passing traffic.Rooms clean,but not very well maintained.

Stayed here for one night on arrival at waikiki from the uk. Location was good, staff were friendly and room was clean. Room was basic but for £56 cannot complain at all! This would suit anyone visiting waikiki on a budget and is in walking distance of beach.

Stayed here for 3 nights, arrived on an early flight & tried to book in, was told I would need to pay an extra night, so left my luggage instead & was told to phone at 3pm to see if our room was ready ( check-in time advertised as 3pm). This unhelpful reception set the tone for our entire stay,... More

This is the 3rd time that I have stayed here. We had issues on our previous stay but I was prepared to stay there again as I like the location. I had an early morning flight in from Australia so went to the hotel to see if I could leave my bag there as it was too early to book... More

This place is run down. I have no idea how people can give it 3 stars. The curtains are torn, the walls chipped. My sister in laws room had a blood stain on a sheet. If all you need is a cheap place to stay this is it.

If you don't mind a little smell and can used to it or use some deodorant, and if you get the room on the cheap (70-90) then it's a good deal. Some ups though, the daily fee is only 10 and you get to use the safe, access to the internet, free water bottles and beach towels. The big screen... More
