This is actually not a hotel, it's a large number of time share apartments, but is worth a visit nonetheless. The position is great, really good and is only a couple of minutes from the main beach in Waikiki. Rooms are basic but clean and the staff are very friendly and efficient. We were only in Waikiki for a couple...

There is an ABC store located next door which sells food, beverages, and souvenirs as well as most anything else you might need. The building is growing older and needs much updating. The staff is very...

I have been to a lot of hotels in my 40+ years of traveling and this has to be the worst.My room feels like a prison,a/c won't shut off and doesn't even work good. I could go on but If you decide to stay here definitely check where your room is located,good luck
