    Clean and well priced. A nice find in a field of expensive hotels.

    Quaint hotel. Clean and right opposite the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Tropics Bar and Restaurant is nearby and right on the beach. We enjoyed sharing a Pu Pu plate and a cocktail while watching the sunsets. Thursday or Friday nights, the Hilton puts on fireworks on the beach. So........inexpensive hotel (comparably) with all the advantages of the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Parking was limited. No room service but rooms had microwave ovens and tea and coffee making facilities. Some rooms have water views. Small balconies. No smoking hotel. Free shuttle service to Ala Moana shopping centre and it is huge and worth a visit. You can walk to it in 15 mins or so. All in all, a good find! 👍

    You can be overwhelmed, and underwhelmed, but can you just be "whelmed?"

    Just an average stay. -Know going into this experience that there is no valet parking, and the structure itself is not for the faint of heart. -Staff was pleasant enough, checked in without hassles. Free WiFi, DVD rentals, etc included, nothing too spectacular or noteworthy. -We did not use the pool, but the area looked clean and the pool was pleasant to look at. -Rooms are small, even by Waikiki standards. The best feature of the room was the floor stand fan that allowed us to sleep with the AC off and still feel comfortable. (We live on Oahu without AC, so we freeze when staying in hotels where it is "always on." -The bathroom was clean but tiny. The shower was poorly lit. -One of the most disappointing aspects was the shower floor... it was incredibly slick, to the point of feeling unsafe on your feet. Overall, we rated this hotel as Average. If there was a 2.5 star rating this would be it. The property was dated but clean, nothing special or "wow-worthy." Would not stay again as there are other properties in this price range that we prefer in other areas of Waikiki.

    Do NOT stay here

    This place is past “out dated” or fallen on hard times. Honolulu is filled with hotel rooms, and this hotel should not be considered. The hotel is located on an incredibly loud street and the property is dirty, and uncomfortable. Staff persistently knocked on my door today to examine the bath tub, which I did not request and refused to provide a badge or ID. Lobby is not secure and elevators to rooms are fully accessible from a parking garage by-passing he front desk. Mold, stained carpet, torn mattress, worn pillows sheets, stained furniture and curtains are just the short list of issues.

    Not too bad

    It was a nice place very convenient lots of shuttles to take you to the beach! Very expensive to eat at surrounded restaurants, the hotel had a great breakfast deal. Loved that. Apparently they have an issue with ants. But they sprayed right away!

    Convenient and quiet.

    We stayed here two nights before our cruise and found the hotel to be very convenient to restaurants, transportation and the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable. On Wednesday evenings, 5:00, there is an "appie" party in the lobby for an hour with drinks and music which was lovely.
