As others have written, this is not the 5 star Hawaii resort experience, but it is a very good value for money kind of place. If you can get a room overlooking the bay (vs. one facing into the back parking lot) it's a fabulous view, well worth the price. Room includes a free breakfast at Coconut Restaurant, in same building, but a separate business. Run by a local Hawaiian family, it has a lot of old-world (i.e., not glitzy corporate run) hotel establishment going for it. Free wifi in lobby (but a fee in the rooms - our only complaint). Using internet in lobby gives you a chance to enjoy the open air lobby, with no windows at all on side facing fish pond - a nice feature to enjoy.
