We rented what is considered a studio with partial ocean view. For the price the room was fine, the biggest problem we had was the king bed. It was a very cheep mattress and hard and lumpy. If we were there longer than two days we would have gone somewhere else because it was hard to sleep in the bed. It was clean and staff friendly, 15 min walk to Waikiki Beach. A lot of shopping and food choices nearby. Parking cost was about $18. per night. Sorry to say I won't stay there again because of the bed.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great location. The beach was just down the street. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants. Waikiki is a busy area. The room was a place to sleep. It was clean, friendly staff, good location. Parking was a crime! They charged a lot daily.
The pool is tiny with a hot tub. Nothing great.
For the price we paid , it was fine.

Honestly this hotel was the best price that we could find in Honolulu which was great, but I kind of think that it would be worth spending a little more for a nicer hotel. The view was nice, but it was ruined by how dirty the windows were. Usually I don't care much about the hotel because we are only there to sleep and shower. However, I prefer a nice bed and shower. We requested a King bed, but were given a queen and the bed was AWFUL! It was super uncomfortable and I could feel every spring. They also do not use fitted sheets, but rather flat sheets and my husband and I move a lot in our sleep and we kept waking up on top of the mattress itself which I found disgusting! The shampoo/condition/lotion they provide is not bad, but man that soap is horrible. I don't even know how to describe the feel of it, but it does not rinse off your skin at all! There towels are also very small and thin. Our shower also did not work properly. Half the water came out of the bathtub faucet which was really annoying. Our TV did not work and we chose not to complain about it. It was nice not having television for a week, but I know some people would not appreciate that. We stayed for one week and chose to have housekeeping only come twice. One time they did not even replace our shower supplies and we had literally nothing left in the bottles and another time our bathroom was pretty messy because of sand and it wasn't cleaned at all. People say there is a bar right by the pool and hot tub, but my guess is that it closed down because there was nothing up there. They do have a bar in their restaurant downstairs. I guess there is free wifi in their lobby; they also have an internet/printing station, but it's $5 for every half hour. Also parking is expensive. It's $18 a night. That would have been nice to know that parking was not included in the room price.

We stayed here at the end of a cruise, around the Hawaiian islands, for 5 nights.
The check in was quick and efficient and we were soon in our room on the 11 floor.
The room was fine, a little old fashioned but it was clean and everything worked. The a/c worked well .
The hotel seemed to have a lot of Japanese visitors arriving and leaving everyday, so there was often a crowd in the lobby, but it wasn;t a problem.
We ate at Vits the on site restaurant several times and it was very good. There is a Whalers store across the road so we got a sandwich, fruit and drink for lunch and ate it in the outer lobby using the Wi-Fi most days.
The pool was poor, a little maintenance and up dating would make a big difference.

I have stayed here 3 times now on the occasions I have had to tolerate Waikiki before heading elsewhere. This place is great - functional, clean rooms (though somewhat rundown), good location just a bit removed from tourist-central madness. Good prices for Waikiki area. Only cons are - somewhat expensive parking, no room service. Get a room on a higher floor if you can.

Super nice hotel staff. We were upgraded to a partial hotel view without charge. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the beach, but anything closer would have been more $.
Clean enough rooms that was prompt. They only missed 1 day of turn around service, but offered to come up and clean when I called, probably becuase I extended 1 day it caused confusion.
One evening we were going out the hot water stopped working, it delayed us going out, but got fixed within an hour. This was probably the only thing that went wrong, and nothing was compensated, but it was only an hour (at a prime time).
Only had a fridge and coffee maker, no microwave unfortunately.
Having to pay $18/day for parking sucked, but I guess that's normal in honolulu.
Daily rate not included of I Internet access, which was sort of a bummer - again, pay for what you get.
Overall, great hotel and I would stay again and recommend it for the price :)
