Let me begin by saying the front desk staff are outstanding. They were friendly, helpful, courteous and very knowledgeable. At check-in on a hot and humid afternoon, they offered cold towels and cold juice and to store our bags until our room was ready. They could give lessons to other hotels on how to make customers feel welcome. So why... More

The airconditioning is an old box in the window type system which is incredibly loud and ineffective. The glass is not sound proof so you get ALOT of street noise. Overall if the room was much cheaper you... More

I'm starting this by saying the rooms are small. They are really small, but if you are on Oahu and spending time in your hotel room something is wrong with you. It's a quick walk to the beach and they give out towels, beach chairs and beach mats for free-you can't beat that. Another plus, it is valet parking $25... More

Stayed here again during a layover in Honolulu and was met with exceptional service again and a very comfortable stay. We used the courtesy room before flying out and this made our red eye flight comfortable. I look forward to staying here again on my next visit to HNL!

The window air conditioners were really loud and disturbed my peace of mind while awake and trying to sleep. Breakfast food wasn't great except for fresh fruit. Breads and baked goods were processed and tasteless.
