Nicely presented hotel. No problem with the room presentation . We stayed on the 10th floor and the noise from the road traffic below was bad, difficult to sleep at night. The person who checked us was not very friendly.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I picked this hotel because it was such a good price and had such great reviews. Normally the lower the price the lower the reviews, it ended up being the best decision for my first trip to Hawaii. Right off the bat I will say that this is what you might call a budget hotel, unless you shell out some...

A nice tidy hotel with a great location that is an easy walk straight onto the beach. Staff are helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed our stay. They even let you use a room to freshen up in after checking out, you are treated as a customer until you have left.

A very pleasant and unpretentious hotel located just 250m from Waikiki beach. Comfortable and well appointed guest rooms with free WiFi and all the basic amenities you need when holidaying in Hawaii. Pros: 1. Location, location, location. Close to everything you could possibly want to do at Waikiki. The Bus stops right outside and most tour pick-ups are meters away....

The staff here is awesome! I had no trouble using their tablet request system. The room was cozy and was perfect since I was just exploring Hawaii during the day and just needed a place to sleep. It had everything I needed! They offered beach towels, mats, umbrellas. Unfortunately, they didn't have snorkel gear. The room and lobby were updated...

The hotel is clean, the staff friendly, and the location is convenient. Wouldn't have minded a deeper sink in the bathroom. Not being computer savvy, we didn't know there was a tablet in the room to order maid service or ice, etc. If the check-in counter folks just let people know, that would be a big help.
