Excellent location. Friendly staff, very helpful. The first room they gave us was very, very dated so they moved us to another which was alot better (710). Pool area could be amazing, you are looking directly at Diamond Head, just a same that the sun loungers, which aren't sun loungers but just chairs with foot stools are very old and...

Absolutely a great hotel! Close to pretty much everything. We stayed 7 days and the staff was helpful, courteous, polite, and friendly. The room was dated but extremely nice. The view was absolutely breath taking. We had an ocean view out of one window and a view of Diamond Head mountain out the other. Our room included a balcony with...

Great find on the edge of Waikiki Beach. Great room with a view of the pink flamingos​ at the zoo! And the ocean! Everyone is incredibly friendly on the staff. And it is reasonably priced as well. I highly recommend this hotel.

Real nice location on the quieter end of Waikiki. Right by the parks, zoo, beach and lots of good food close by. Good value for us with a nice view. Watch for room sales in off season. If you enjoy sunrise or sunset walks this is the location to be. Real nice. Bill K Steamboat Springs Colorado

The reason for the 4 was for the following reasons - noisy a/c which made it difficult to sleep...

The hotel is located steps from the beach and the zoo. Easy access to everything on the main Blvd. The staff was incredibly professional and nice. The hotel is a little dated specifically in the bathroom but everything else was updated.
