We arrived very early in the morning and were aware that there would be quite a wait, so our bags were taken care of an we were given access to the owners lounge which was a life saver. We were able to shower and watch tv and even have... More

Top location amongst all the top hotels but at a more affordable price. Located on lowers st its two mins to the beach, on all the main bus routes and right near all the main shops, bars and restaurants.

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

When brought up to the Front desk Manager the next morning, she had the nerve to ask me if I kept the roach to show proof like I was lying!!! UNREAL!!!!! I wasn't going to... More

This hotel is very tired. Units are small, furniture out of date and not everything in the unit we had worked. The second bedroom didn't even have enough room for bedside tables. I think this problem is being addressed though. The location is spot on and you can easily walk to anywhere in Waikiki.

While the location is terrific our room was a bit disappointing. It was a studio but with no view...............we did go atop the building with a terrific view of the whole Waikiki. The murphy bed that we had was super comfortable!!! So don't say "ugh" when you see it. We slept wonderfully. The a/c ran constantly the whole week; we... More

The bed is a bit small for 2 people to sleep. Sure it may seem like a double, but come on, I am pretty sure it's smaller. Thankfully the room comes with a comfortable sofa bed. The small kitchenette was great with the coffee maker, the microwave, and plates. We had cooked food during our stay in Maui and thankfully... More
