Room - If you are looking for accommodation with a view, this is not the place. This would be ideal if your planning to enjoy 'Waikiki' out and about. Room has fridge, microwave, TV (simple things one needs). Staff - 24 hours service desk. Most of the staff won't 'knowledge' you. Staff at the time NOT helpful when my partner... More

My stay was very good. The front desk was incredibly helpful and friendly. One of the staff was training and still did a good and efficient job. The more senior staff was fantastic and knowledgable. They made a map for me to find local bars and restaurants even though it was a late hour. I appreciated their help and they... More

I stayed for 2 nights on a weekend in July after I sent my relatives back home first. Staff is very friendly, pleasant, and helpful. They answered all the questions I had and booked a shuttle to the airport. The hotel should not be called a "boutique" hotel. It is an extension of a hostel. It is sufficient for one... More

Vacation was planned for Big Island, but added a few days on the trip to revisit Oahu. We wanted to be in walking distance of Waikiki. A quick search on Trip Advisor and other sites came up with Stay Hotel which had great pictures on their website. For the time of year we were traveling it had lower rates than... More

The rooms look nothing like those advertised and are very old and run-down. Our room had a very strong scent of something rotting, which was very unpleasant. You are also slugged an amenities fee even though the cleaners basically do nothing. The location is good and the staff are (generally) friendly.

We stayed here for one night in a queen room. It's in a great location and very reasonably priced, even the daily charge was great at around USD10. Friendly, efficient check-in. Clean, tidy and spacious room with balcony and almost sea view. Only downside was the aircon unit as it was situated on the wall right next to the bed... More
