My mother, son and I stayed for 2 nights after our cruise and we had a great experience with the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. We showed up early in the morning and the staff did their best to try and get our room ready, usual check-in time isn't until 3pm. They stored our luggage so we can... More

Great value. A little old with need of a few upgrades (blinds need replacing or fixed) but clean with great, friendly service, and great location. Saved us a bunch of money with decent free breakfast every morning.

The moment I hit the lobby, I knew I made a mistake! Although, the staff were friendly and helpful, I wouldn't stay here again. The location, within walking distance of shopping, eating, beach!!! That was the only thing going for this place, its a very old building, I had a dead roach in the bathroom, i had a bug crawling... More

After reading reviews of this hotel I was a little worried but was surprised it was fine. Maybe we were lucky with one that had been refurbished. We could tell it was old but it was clean and functional. Definitely not plush but it has everything you need for the price! Balcony was a nice feature too. Staff were friendly... More

I had a bad feeling as soon as the elevator stopped and I stepped onto my floor. The hallway looked disgusting and straight out of a 70s porn. As soon as I walked into the room, there was a overwhelming odour of mold and mustiness, like a wet beach towel had been left under the bed for a year. The... More

Nicely renovated with a modern look that's not over done...close to many shops, restaurants. friendly staff that meets & greets with the true "ALOHA" spirit...this hotel is truly the "gateway" to Waikiki !!

Hotel is located downtown. Restaurants are close by and taxis are available everywhere. Hotel is nice. Room was clean. Bathroom clean. No complaints. Hallway areas remind me of an old apartment building. Didn't like the additional $10 amenities charge, what amenities????? Also $25 charge for valet. You have too, no where else to park. Nickel and dime you with charges.... More

My wife and I had not been away by ourselves in a very long time so this was really a disappointment! We had 2 balconies; one was not usable because the old window ac was leaking from the ac above us and our ac unit. Although the room had been renovated they forgot completely about the tiny bathroom; rusted bathtub... More
