This hotel has the little touches that make a big difference. We stayed for two nights Nov. 3-5th, 2012. We had requested a room overlooking the pool ( quieter that way ) and upon check in they told us we would be upgraded to their studio. This unit has dishes, fridge, stove top. Very nice! They give pool towels at the front desk, but the best part is they also have beach chairs, water toys, and I even say surf boards, that you can borrow, and return to take to the beach. Very nice touch. In the lobby, they also have water, and iced tea or lemoade available all day. The only complaint is there is no wireless in the rooms, but you can take your laptop to the lobby, and there is wireless there. All in all, an old hotel that has been updated, and also has a safe in the room, where you put in your own passcode. Would have no problem staying here again. One block from Waikiki Beach!
