“It is what it is”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I stayed here for a long week in the end of March 2013. This place is not too bad, the room was tight which I was not expecting. It was me and my boyfriend and our suitcases, which took up most of the room. This beach is right around the corner from the hotel, plenty of food everywhere. The staff where friendly especially the cleaning lady. Would I stay here again? Sure why not, I did not have any real problems with this hotel plus the location is nice.

Room Tip: If you rent a car plan on paying for parking.

Modest little place compared to some of the gaudy hotels on the beach but a perfect place for the price. It has everything you need - wireless, beach towels, beach chairs, continental breakfast, free DVDs - and is just a minute walk to the beach. For the price we were very happy. Our only complaint was that there wasn't a "hand" chair in the room like there was in the picture. Other than that, wonderful place.

This place is awful. It looks so cool in the pictures but when I walked in, it was basically a large prison cell. Totally false advertising. They screwed up my bill, and when I was trying to fix it the staff was no help. It is less than a block to the beach, so that's nice... But that was it. Just don't bother.

We were lucky enough to find this place on the Internet looking for a cheap clean room in Waikiki . After arriving at stay we we very pleased with the hotel .Rooms were clean and serviced daily nothing was a problem for the staff they were alway's happy to help fresh pastries and breakfast was great. Free wifi great ,free DVD also great I would recomend this place to any one . As for the charges people are talking about ($100 bond and $10 daily fee ) theses fees are normal and are just life .

Hi the hotel room fit my bill. It was basic and clean, conviently located near the beach and that is what I wanted. I did not want to pay for Spas, or ocean views, etc, all I wanted was a bed and a bathroom. I was in Hawaii to see the sites, not spend time in my room, so it was a block from the Waikiki beach and lots of shopping and restaurants.

Ok, the hotel is very basic, if u are a traveler in a tight budget, this is a perfect place for u!! Hotel is clean and just one block away from the beach, restaurants, bars and shops!!!!! Staff is very friendly and courteous, they found a shuttle for us to the airport that charges $8 per person, cant beat that....the breakfast is not really a breakfast, just get the coffee and juice (no matter what they still charge u $10) I think they should reconsider charging that for such a poor breakfast.... if u can afford more and looking for luxury, look elsewhere....

Austere doesn't begin to describe this place-the stark, white room has no in-room phone, kitchenette, coffee, nothing, but the location is fantastic- it's right where you want to be in Waikiki, three minutes from the best part of the beach, near the Int'l Market, the zoo, everything you could want to do in Waikiki.
The continental breakfast features all the usual suspects and is okay. The front desk folk are nice for the most part and helpful with one or two exceptions.
Frig avail. for room on request.
Probably not the best choice for a long-term stay like we're having due to the lack of amenities. And the cb isn't really free since you're hit with a $10 per day amenities fee.
It looks like this was an apt. building that was converted to a "hotel."

Room Tip: Probably better to get a room on the higher floors which I think have lanais.

Aloha Jack,

Thank you for taking time to let us know about your experience with us. We are delighted that you liked the location of the property which is just a 2 minute walk from to the beach. Sorry to hear our amenities did not fit your needs, but after the continental breakfast, we do serve coffee in the lobby until noon each day to help most people get their caffine fix. Your room tip is correct. The higher floors have balconies while the lower floor has a little more interior space.

Thank you again for your review and we hope that we will be able to host you again in the near future.

With Warmest Aloha,
Earl T. Nakachi
