I really enjoyed staying here. The only big downside was the water temperature in the shower was never consistent. It would alternate hotter and colder every minuteish. They just remodeled and it's pretty nice. The restaurant on the 3rd floor is nice. I had the ahi sandwich

Great family hotel, awesome renovation especially pool & restaurant deck with great views of Diamond Head to take in while listening to live music every night. Rooms were good size & very tastefully decorated, we would definitely go back again.

This is our 2nd year in a row staying in one of the rooms that has an unobstructed view to Diamond Head. It is an awesome view looking over the zoo and even a partial view of the ocean. The new updates were great! We may make this an annual event!

I was upgraded based on a promotion that I used when booking. I would guess that the guest in front of you forgot it was part of their booking rate. I booked via a TravelZoo promotion.

We will not have a car. Is the Queen K on the bus line? Is there an airport shuttle?
Yes, on the bus line. No hotel shuttle from airport but lots of ways to get there. You don't need a car unless you want to rent one for a day to drive around the island.

Enjoy your vacation and pay the $30 +valet tip, otherwise you'll stress out having to find a place to park until spots open up at the zoo across the street...and even then, I've seen it get full at night and people driving around to park their car.

"Probably could have done with better storage in the room ie some draws to put things away in"
"We had a city view, which was lovely, but I recommend upgrading to an ocean or Diamondhead view if you can."
"Update the aircon as it is so old and outdated. Very noisy "
"The bed and pillows were very comfortable - really loved our room on the 6th floor. We had views of the beach and Diamond Head Crater."
"Although small, the room had everything we needed."
