College graduation trip

The hotel is in a very convenient place, close to Waikiki beach and to the nice walkway by the canal. Also just few minutes from the zoo. It has parking under the building and in the extended parking lot. Nice outside breakfast and lunch space to enjoy wonderful weather. Menu was good. Staff is very friendly, even gave a basket to the graduate (!) when we mentioned the reason for the visit. The room is very clean and well kept everyday. The only downside that bathroom sink and shower handles have seen some better days and need to be replaced.

cheap and good location

Overall this was a three star hotel. Good location, parking however was hard to come by. $22 for parking each day and a hidden $15 hospitality fee is over priced. There were a couple of roaches I'm my room and big ones too. If you're looking for a cheap stay this is the spot.

Awesome intro to Hawaii

From the beginning, the staff at the front desk was always helpful and gave great info on buses, getting around, also a free pass on the shuttle to the shopping center. A lot of good perks--beach towels, free breakfast, movies, etc. Didn't have time for movies though, we toured the island by bus and rented car...fun experience, especially Hanauma bay and the beaches nearby there...Waikiki beach was packed with people though..

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Get out of Waikiki (one or two days there is sufficient) and tour other beautiful beaches on the island! All are not far away.

noisy

Room was very small and never cooled much even with air conditioning on high. Very noisy location, even 12 stories up still heard every siren and loud exhaust. Not enough parking, very small parking places, and they charge you $20/day! Poor value for the $150 / night price.

Ok for the price

The hotel is in an area a few blocks from the beach- easy walking distance to Waikiki Beach. However it is an area that may seem somewhat unsafe to walk around after dark. The hotel itself is small and fairly tidy. Staff are courteous. Ameneties are minimal. In short, the place is an acceptable place for a budget stay near the beach.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

You may prefer a taxi if out after dark to avoid walking the dark and potentially unsafe streets around the area at later hours.

Pleasant stay

We had a pleasant stay... However we did run into a glitch with the staff, and we were provided basic commodities... I wondered if moderate was= to basic, according to the staff it was. Was a little sad that we had one of the only rooms with no balcony, would have been handy to launder our laundry.

Not 3 star worthy

Staff was nice, parking price per day is just insane housekeeping did clean the room but you have to ask them to change the sheets otherwise they don't. Overall it's not the best for the price so it should not even get a star! I've stayed in motels that where much more nice.
