My husband and I stayed here for two weeks when we first moved to the island at the end of December 2012. The hotel is in a great location in that it is in the heart of the tourist area without all of the hustle and bustle of the larger hotels. It was a 5 min walk to the beach. Towels and beach chairs were provided as well. The housekeeping staff was great and the hotel was very clean. Our room had a small refrigerator and microwave which was just enough for us. Not to mention the fact that there was an IHOP in the lobby of the hotel. Also the shopping mall, Walmart, and many restaurants are within walking distance. You can also take the trolley for two dollars.
The only two downsides to the hotel is the location of the hotel in which the noise on the street down below is one issue. We had a Diamnondhead view which faces the ocean as well. The noise from the cars was so very loud. The second is the parking lot. Parking is in a structure but it is up a very steep hill and hard to maneuver in and out.
