This hotel is the best value in Waikiki to get ocean front and beach views. The other hotels are beach front, but costs at least double. Get a beach front room on a high floor, see if you can get closer to the Diamond Head side of the front of the building. It provides the best views of both Diamond Head and the beach strip. They provide free breakfast, beach towels, and camping style chairs for the beach. The hotel is clean and decent room sizes, it's definitely not super high end, but you're in Hawaii. If you're there to stay in the room you went to the wrong place.
