Reviewed May 28, 2013

We began our trip of Hawaii by staying five nights at this hotel that is situated right in the heart of Waikiki. It's close to public transportation (bus and trolley) and only two blocks from beautiful and famous Waikiki Beach! The hotel room itself was standard. The hotel does not have ocean views, but we weren't in the hotel for most of the day! It has a pool and deck area with lounge chairs. You need to use your room key card to operate the elevators (security measure) so make sure you bring yours with you. Hotel staff were great. Check in was simple and efficient. Shower was nice with great water pressure. Beds a little uncomfortable, but all in all, not bad.

Room Tip: No ocean views from this hotel, so it doesn't really matter what room you're in.

I stayed here for a week when I came for a friend's wedding. I was able to get the block room rate for the whole week. There wasn't really an ocean view but it was still a great location, close to the beach and close to other attractions. Rooms are very clean. TV was older but I did t go to Hawaii to watch TV. Parking was kind of expensive so be prepared for that. I would highly recommend staying here and I would come back.

Room Tip: No breakfast but there are plenty of coffee shops nearby.

We stayed in this hotel two nights. We had to take a taxi to come from airport which cost around 30 $ because the bus doesnt take people with luggage!

The price of hotel was very reasonable to compare to another hotels so I didnt expect too much. But hotel was nice suprise.

Staff was really friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and clean. You will find everything you need it – couch, fridge (little bit noisy when you want to sleep), coffee maker.. Bed was comfortable. Very like the balcony when you can watch the ocean and rest.

Hotel is situated close to Waikiki Beach, ABC stores and another shops. Behind the hotel you can find bus stop 20, 21 which is going to airport (approx. 45 min – dont like the freezing AC inside the bus) and big cheaper shopping centre (cheaper than ABC). Coming back from hotel we booked a car – cost the same as take a taxi and you can explore all Oahu island.

Only one negative was snoring neighbour:-(

I booked with this hotel last minute on graduation weekend. I was lucky to have found a good deal on a place close to the activities I wanted to do. It's super close to the beach which was great for my day of surfing. Also walking distance to the Zoo and Kapiolani Park. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I felt very safe and comfortable in the hotel and area it was located which was very important since I was traveling alone. The one person room I stayed in was the perfect size. Even had a queen size bed! No view, but that didn't matter. The room could have been a little cleaner. There were some hairs on the bathroom floor and in the shower. It didn't bother me too much, but others might be freaked out. The overall cleanliness was good. I would definitely stay here again! Value was excellent!!

I stayed here a number of times and last year in June 2012. It's a typical Waikiki mid-range hotel that is 1 1/2 blocks away from Waikiki Beach. The room I had was on the 12th floor, typical room for this type of hotel, no frills, small refrigerator, small television, basic furnishings. The location is great as it is close to restaurants (Round Table Pizza is downstairs), the world famous beach, many shuttles for shopping and sight-seeing. There is parking if you are driving a rental car. Very urban feel when you get down to the street with many cars, buses, people, not quite the tropical paradise you would envision. But all in all, a pleasant time in Oahu.

We just got back from staying here for two weeks, we brought the in-laws/cousins and have acquired 3 rooms. This is the inlaws first time to the island so I picked this hotel knowing the location, price, and quality of this hotel.

I have previously stayed here a couple of times and I knew that this would be perfect. It is about a 5 mins walk to Waikiki Beach, International Marketplace (shopping and Eating) and the Food Pantry (grocery/food). There is also Round Table Pizza downstairs for that lazy/fast meals or you can go to Keoni's, a sit down restaurant or a fancy steak house.

This accomodations is sufficient and clean. Thou, the furnishings is somewhat dated, it is always kept tidy by the very friendly hotel staff. The check in desk are a very helpful and friendly and more than is willing to help you in whatever way they can.

They also have this pink line trolley that shuttles you around free by just showing your key to the hotel, you can be a short minute to the Ala Moana Mall for more shopping and eating!

I love this place. made our stay wonderful and my in laws first time experience to the island very memorable.

Room Tip: This hotel is in the middle of activities for Waikiki, cars, bus, trolley, people everywhere...every...
