I especially loved the location of this hotel. Close to shopping, beach, park and restaurants. It was clean and the staff was very accommodating. We didn't have an ocean view, which would have made it nicer, but had a great view of the park. Would definitely stay again.

Overpriced, older hotel. Charging resort fee and there is no resort there. Swimming pool what they are showing on the picture looks totally different in reality, and not in a good way. A girl at the reception wasn't friendly. Talk so fast like she is in rush. We didn't understand her anything, when we asked questions she wasn't polite. Unwilling... More

Hotel is nicely located a couple blocks off the beach, Plenty do do within walking distance. Staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the area. For Waikiki the price for hotel and parking was pretty good. Would stay again next time I am in the area.
