This was the worst stay we've had in Waikiki and we've been here many times. We always stay at lower-priced hotels, usually further from the beach than this. We were attracted here by the location, the website photos, and the pricing which was shown as about 50% off the list of $ 220 or so. Having now stayed there we are reminded "if it sounds too good to be true it probably is" The room was extremely small, maybe 120 square feet as shown on the website but had a small dresser, no table or chair, so the suitcases went on the dresser and we sat on the bed, which was a mattress on particle board and sagged badly to the center. The room floor was sticky from something and generally dirty.
There was a light right outside the bathroom window and with no curtains on bath and half of bedroom it was like daylight or worse all night. In addition the windows were both very high and frosted so there was no view, city or otherwise. The breakfast was fair, watery juice and only milk for the coffee, but some decent pastries. Breakfast and Wi-Fi, along with a Honolulu paper are included in the $10 amenity fee..
Although the location is good the neighborhood isn't, especially at night, with questionable noisy neighbors and also busses running most of the time.
We did find the staff pleasant and friendly.
