The noise in my room was really incredible. I was expecting noise, having read the reviews, but not this. I don't know what it was exactly, it seemed to come from the ABC store close by (their A/C?) and then there was the already described vacuum cleaner of the car rental firm as well as the street noise.
I had a standard room, which was clean, kitchenette was alright. I didn't feel absolutely safe there as you can get to the rooms without passing the reception (which is closed after 8pm anyway).
Ashley and the night manager were both very nice, but the third receptionists literally rolled her eyes at me once. Ok, it wasn't yet 8 am (when they open), but she already sat at the reception just wanted to leave a note that I would be back later for check in (I had arrived during the night, and then you ring the bell at the resident manager's room and get the key), so that they didn't wonder. Next time I won't bother...She tried to be friendly afterwards, though. WiFi didn't work at all in my room, you had to go to the reception office.
From the other reviews I had expected something better and wasn't really happy. But if the location close to the beach is very important to you and you don't want to pay the "normal" Waikiki prices...what can you do?
