I'm giving this 3 stars instead of 2 because I have become a hotel snob. I'm just going to list the pros and cons and you can make your own decision on whether or not this is a place you'd like to stay. Pros: cheap, for Honolulu standards. $124 on Orbitz, room only. Very small but nice lobby with pod...

We spent 5 nights here. The Location was ideal but the room tired. The windows were louvred and the noise levels at night and early morning were shocking. The bathroom was old and the taps leaked. The pillows were very hard but the staff were good.

Great location. Close to lots of shopping, hotels, restaurants, bars and only 1 block from the beach. Good central location. Really helpful and friendly staff. Clean rooms. Fair price for what you get. Nothing fancy but it's good if you're on a budget but still want quality. Would stay again.

The pictures of the hotel on its website highlights something fancy, but the place was not as creative as it showed. This hotel has an 4pm check-in policy. Just a heads up for those arriving early and are really tired and need to rest a bit, this is not an option. The hotel charges for amenities that guests don't really...

We stayed here overnight, to catch a morning plane. The top floor room, was tiny, with a small queen bed pushed against 1wall and a 12 to 18 inch space to get out the other side. Window air conditioning unit is 18 inches from the head of the bed. No chair. The building air unit rumbled and vibrated all night....

I really don't understand the negative reviews about this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised with our experience! Check-in was quick and easy, and our room was spacious and clean. My only issue was the the air conditioner was right next to the bed, so the person sleeping on that side got blasted with cold air. But I just flipped around...

We stayed here for 2 nights in Waikiki. It is more like a slightly higher standard of a hostel. The whole property has a hostel vibe. The rooms are very basic and the furniture is a little out of date. However it is in a good location just one block back from the beach. The staff didn't really know what...

Our room was small. Very small. But it was clean and so close to the beach! The stops for tours are nearby as well (if they don't come directly to the hotel). Staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was free but constantly cut out in our room - made it tricky to book things online. We did have a microwave...
