I booked this hotel on a gamble thru West Jet Vacations. The billed it as a 3* and much to my supprise thats exactly what it turned out to be. Its best feature is that it is literally 75 yards from the front door until your feet are on the sand of Waikiki Beach. Its a 1/2 block off the beach front street, behind another larger hotel so some of the higher up rooms might have a beach view. Ours on the 6th floor didnt.
This is Korean Airlines base hotel so the service is exceptional. Everything was neat as a pin. The hotel was recently renovated and I couldnt find a blemish anywhere. The beds were comfy, the linnens good and housekeeping adequate.
This is the only hotel that I have been in that wasnt a 4 or 5 star that had beach towels for guests right in the lobby.
There were plenty of places near by to eat from Mc Donalds right next door to Grilled steak, mexican food and 3-4 asian places all with in the same block.
For those of you familiar with Waikiki this hotel is on the far east end of the main part of Waikiki about 4 blocks west of the Zoo. The beach area by the hotel is protected by a lava rock jetty so its very calm and warm in the water. Shallow too. I had no problem letting my 10 yr old run around here. The only complaint I had with the hotel is that the pool is NOT heated. This is the norm for Waikiki hotels, but you know what guys that is NO Excuse!! Guests in the 21 century EXPECT the pool to be heated. The pool was useless and ICEcold. Speaking of which the only ice macine in the hotel is on the 2nd floor by the pool. Could use one on every floor.
The hotel had coin operated laundry in the basement parkade which came in handy as well.
This was one of the few "Budget" hotels that I have stayed in at Waikiki that actually had a full tub. Everything in the room was modern, we had a small 2' cube fridge that was ice cold and came in handy for snacks. This hotel is 4 blocks from the Food Pantry the only full grocery store in Waikiki.
There was a business center and free Wifi in the lobby. Internet ws $10/day if you wanted it in your room. There was no gym, but there was a full 24 hr fitness place across the street that guests got a discount at. Parking was a steep $18/day for guests and there wernt tons of spots. The room also had a free large safe that could old a 15" laptop.
I would stay here again in a heart beat and for the price it was a steal.
