This hotel has a fantastic location! It is one very short block to the beach. The breakfast is great, coffee, danish, toast, cereal, juice and coffee. There is a convienence store on two doors down that has food, wine, liquor etc. The staff was great. Yes the rooms could use a little rereshing, but they were clean, and safe. The is only one elevator and it can be a short wait, but hey, you are on vacation, relax a bit. Over all, a great stay!

the stay was ok the hotel is cute. but they make you pay an extra $20 a day for parking plus $10 a day for something else which sucks big time... but other than that the people are nice the hotel is quiet and the ladies that rent rooms here are freaking gorgeous!

Aloha Joe,

Mahalo for writing your review. As a Kama'aina, I am surprised you did not know that every hotel in Waikiki charges for parking. We do post our amenity notices on every booking website and it is also explained at check in. You signed that you acknowledged the fee along with the security deposit on your registration card. I'm sorry you did not see it.

We truly appreciate your Kama'aina business and hope you will visit us again in the near future.

With Warmest Aloha,

Earl

I booked this through a hotel website and it was one of the cheaper places near Waikiki. You are about a block from the beach so for the price it couldn't be beat. It however feels like a converted apartment block, so the foyer is like the pictures but then once you get into the elevator (which is small) and go down the outdoor hallway to your room, it feels like you're in a grungy apartment complex. The lock on the door seemed flimsy and even though we were on the 4 floor I felt very exposed. The room is tiny and although the decor is as pictured, it's like putting lipstick on a pig - the mattress is thin and uncomfortable, the walls are thin and the bathroom is small and dirty. I don't think it's because they haven't cleaned it, it's just dirty the way old apartment bathrooms get dirty. We stayed 2 nights and had no major issues so if price is your limit, then by all means okay, but if you have the money, I would go elsewhere.

When we booked a room at this hotel it was the first time that we hadn't read the tripadvisor reviews. And when we got there we really wished we had!
As most of the reviews say, the pictures that they have on their website and on other websites, have nothing to do with reality. We booked it based on these beautiful - deceiving - photos of a bright, spacious, modern, clean room and what we got was a tiny, dirty, dark hole. Not where you expect to stay in Hawaii, a dream-of-a-lifetime place. At first sight seems renovated, with modern furniture, but in reality is abandoned and sleazy. It's dirty and not at all great value for money.
When we saw the room, we ran down immediately and asked if they could move us to another room. We were told that we had to wait for the next day, because at that time they were fully booked. With no other choice we had to sleep in that room for the night.... The soundproofing? Non existent! Zero! Worst sleep ever.
Anyway, the following morning, went down for breakfast. The breakfast buffet was a joke!!! It was a small corner, with some weird looking muffins and a couple of other things. OMG! It was the most pathetic breakfast EVER! Better remove it folks, take it out of your hotel's services!
After that went straight to the front desk and requested another room. The lady said we had to wait till 12.00 to see the only other room available, which was sliiiiiiightly bigger but overall similar to ours. We then asked if we could get a refund in case we'd like to move out and she said yes. That was it. We found a decent hotel a block away with less money!
Terryfing experience, honestly. Just don' t bother, don't waste you time or money here.
The two stars review is only for the great location and for the very helpful staff. Especially for Phyllis, on the front desk, who was very kind and polite.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel!

The first day we got in, the shower head was leaking water and the toilet was clogged. The water sprayed over the shower curtain and flooded the bathroom floor. I must say the staff is very nice and they were able to get maintenance to fix the leak and unclog the toilet that night. The room does not have the typical sealed windows so it gets very noisy at night. You will hear buses and garbage trucks, as well as any construction that is going on in the area. I suggest you bring ear plugs if you are staying here. Housekeeping did not clean our room very well on a daily basis. They basically just tidied up the room like make your bed and change the towels. You can tell they do not vacuum, scrub the bathroom, or wipe any tabletops down because I see the same stains and hair on the floor. I also saw a huge roach one day right outside of our room. Some of their sheets/towels/blankets are stained. Breakfast does not consist of any hot food, there is tea/coffee, cereal, toast, or some pastries. There is also no fridge, microwave, or water boiler included in your room, but they do have a hair dryer. They say that they have beach gear available, but their beach gear is 3 beach mats, 2 floaties, and 1 beach chair. They do not have any towels available until 2pm, so I suggest you grab whatever beach gear you need the night before. They also charge you a $10 per day fee for wifi, but their wifi is sooooo slow. There were times when I could not go onto anything on my iPhone. In conclusion, I would not stay here again and do not recommend it, but if you are just looking for a low budget place to sleep for 6 hours that's close to the beach and shopping then it might be ok for you.
