The hotel is well maintained and the staff are quite responsive. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Nice kitchenette. Want to call out Kalei and Cheynne who were particularly helpful and very friendly. Helped with parking and luggage.

Nice and decent. Clean. 2-3 blocks from the beach. Close to Food Pantry (supermarket). Close to shops. Close to bus stops. Offers free shuttle to Ala Moana mall. Staff are friendly. The restaurant serves buffet breakfast lunch and dinner at affordable price. The breakfast which I tried is average. Dont expect fancy food.

The free breakfast is pretty good because the cheapest breakfast down the street is about $10Us ($13Aud) so this was worth it. It's about a 5min walk to the beach if you don't get the red light on the corner . Abc store right near there . They have free wifi also that works pretty good . $15Us a day... More

All ok...Location of hotel is a bit sketchy as there are a lot of homeless men around. Breakfast is awful. Courtesy bus downright rude and we did not get a pass from the staff so they would not let us on the bus at the shopping centre. Patio looked onto squalor apartments.

Booked this place at the travel agency. Couldn't fault one bit. Rooms were big enough, staff were friendly. Great location. Just far enough from the noise of the waterfront. Had a room on the opposite side to the road, helped with the noise. The only thing I wouldn't do again if I stayed here was breakfast. We ended up going... More
