“Clean and comfortable,but definitely dated, hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We stayed here for four nights December 2012 and enjoyed our stay. Your choices in Saipan are really expensive, really cheap, or like this one, somewhere in between. The hotel is located a few miles from Garapan so if you want to walk from your hotel to shopping and restaurants you don't want to stay here, although the best restaurant we found on the island was literally a few blocks away (Truongs Vietnemese Restaurant). The suite we purchased had a kitchen, large fridge, balcony, and two very comfortable beds. We also paid a little extra for breakfast each morning which was very good. You must try the Five-o sausage.

The hotel is located down a public beach road and is about 100 yards from the beach. The beach is nice for sunning and taking walks. The sand is as fine as any in the world. The water is shallow and would be ideal for small children and there is absolutely no one on the beach. You could snorkel here but there are many other beaches that are better. The hotels pool is clean and also would be nice for children. So if this meets your needs you would like this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite and it would easily sleep a five person family.

Chose hotel after reviewing here and upon recommendation from rental car agency (package deal);
Hotel is quite a distance from "downtown" with downtown being where the DFS gallery/Hard Rock/ABC/ shopping are located. 28 units located on the beach; parking available; all rooms are poolside; wireless internet access point at the lobby and accessable from the rooms; three meals a day are available each day and while offering a decent selection, found them pricey; nothing less than $10.00; Twice I did dinner during happy hour and although the flyer's noted a 50% discount on drinks, the bill reflected no discount; brought it up to the waitress and attitude copped by both waitresses. Bathroom was newly remodelled; couch/chairs/tv (13 inch CRT model) were very dated; buttons rusted on the couch. Dive club operating on premises and if I were a diver, this would be the ideal location; walk to the beach is 20 seconds; another 5 minutes north along the beach finds the most softest sand I ever knew-like powder. Rate including Toyota Corolla was hundred ten bucks a night so priced less than equivalent in Guam.

We did not stay at this hotel but we did eat there. The food was great for breakfast. Looks like a very fun hotel with a great pool and beach. Low key and lovely. Not fancy. Definitely check it out if you are in Saipan.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

I felt a little like Don Draper when I walked into this place. It's right on the beach with a late 50's early 60's vibe that is PRICELESS. Small pool with little tiki huts and a great bartender (Harry!) who pours liberal $3 happy hour cocktails and serves up great grub. The breakfast was the best I have ever tasted- Saipan spicy fried rice with Five-0 sausage and two sunny side up eggs...it was just the hangover food I needed.

My family arrives today and we are going to the Hyatt but I swear if it's not worth it in two days we are coming back here. This place is just what I needed to escape the hot sticky buttoned-up paIn of Tokyo. As an American guy wanting to escape, I highly recommend this little gem. Rooms luxurious? Of course not. Comfortable and clean? Absolutely.

Do yourself a favor and stay here a few nights. You won't want to leave!
