No frills cheap hotel.
got everything youll need.
Bed , shower ,fridge, TV.
No room service.
Rooms are pretty quiet.
clean, but old style tropical vents above door don't seal out the heat so well.
Not the best place for a Motel in an industrial area, But its close to the Naval base and shipyard.

After reading the reviews of all the Honolulu Airport hotels, which were all pretty poor, we decided to go for the cheapest - and were really happy with our choice. We arrived 7 hours before check in time and wanted to go into town without our heavy luggage, called the hotel and they sent the shuttle (with the lovely Trish, who went out of her way to make us welcome) to pick us up within 20 minutes and checked us in to a newly-cleaned room with larger beds than we had booked (yay!). We were able to relax, shower and leave refreshed for our trip to Ala Moana and Waikiki. The room was older, a little worn around the edges but spotlessly clean and with everything you could want: comfy beds, ample towels and pillows, nice linens mid-size fridge, flat-screen TV, microwave, free WiFi, great A/C and excellent showers. After our trip into town we ate at the Chinese restaurant which was more than reasonably priced (a huge mixed plate of fried rice, duck, pork, brocolli beef and crispy wonton for $7!!) with good service. The pool was great, nicely framed with red ginger and new pool furniture. There was no hairdryer, iron or board in the room but we were easily able to get them from the desk. Airport shuttle runs every 30 minutes and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We slept really well (despite being on the ground floor with the parking lot on 2 sides!) and checkout was easy - we will stay here again. Not luxury but everything you could need at a great price!

Heed the low rating people! It's there for a reason. We stayed here for two nights when our place was being fumigated for termites and will not stay here again! For the price we paid, it's not worth it. We could've stayed at other hotels in Waikiki for a cheaper price and been within walking distance of beaches and shopping.

It's not overly expensive here but as a warning to tourists, you're probably better off paying the same amount of money or just a little more for places closer to all the attractions. This hotel is remotely located after passing a few auto dealer centers. There is a park area next to the hotel which is nice for walking. They also have a swimming pool which can get loud with all the people screaming, running, and jumping into the pool. So if you want peace and quiet, this is not the place for you.

The furnishings are basic: cheap bedding, cruddy flat carpeting, bar soap with no suds...that type of place. No other amenities, no niceties, no aloha at the front desk. Just process in and process out. For a cheaper price I would understand. For $140 a night, I expect something more.

Room Tip: First floor rooms can get noisy with people walking to the pool. Rooms have slatted windows so the n...

Read a lot of pretty negative reviews for this place but we decided it was so close to the airport and the right price for us so we took the chance. After a 12hr journey from New Zealand, we arrived at Honolulu Airport and made a call using the supplied free phone and the complimentary airport shuttle was there within minutes. Check in was pleasant and friendly and we arrived at our room exhausted. Very basic room, but exactly what we needed for one night before our flight to Kauai the next morning. The pool was a welcome sight at midnight and 26 deg c, and the room was tidy and the bed comfortable. This may not be a luxury spot, but for one night, it certainly did the job and the location so close to the airport that it seemed like a good option. Free shuttle back to the airport the following morning was very appreciated and the concierge who drove us was very forthcoming with local information and a very friendly attitude. Keep your expectations realistic and the location and convenience of this place will reward.

Ok, we "won" the bid on hotwire for $99. The Motel (not inn as they suggest) is near the airport its only advantage as we just spent 10 hours in the air and we were leaving for Maui the next morning.. Rooms are out of the 50's. Double beds etc. We would not venture out of the room after dark.

Everything is basically in the title: the room was a bit old and needed refurbishment, the staff was not always friendly, and I ended up by paying c. 120$. So a good choice, but only if you're between planes, I wouldn't stay more than a night...
