Right in the heart of town. And that just about sums up the high points. My room was simple, no frills. It had a nice porch facing the banyan tree. I had seen this place in the past, and had kinda romanticized the idea of staying there... visions of a vintage Hawaiiana experience in my mind. That dream got shot down pretty quickly. The reality was me dragging my luggage up the stairs to a smallish room (no elevator), and parking my car in their parking lot which is a few blocks away. Dealt with three different front desk employees, who I'm sure are nice people but who all had the demeanor of someone who'd been fired from a better job, and weren't too thrilled about dealing with guests at a hotel. The friendliest person I dealt with by far was the housekeeper who cleaned my room.
Any potential noise from the street was successfully drowned out by my air conditioner (which worked great).
A cheaper (but not cheap) place to stay downtown to lock up your stuff, take a shower, and get some sleep. You're in Hawaii, brah, was your plan to spend time in your hotel room? Get out there and explore the town-
Would stay there again, but I'm also keeping an eye out for other options for my next visit.
