Although this property is rated as a 2 or 3 star hotel, our experience was definitely a 5. An older hotel, the staff and inside accommodations were far beyond our expectations. From check in to check out, they went above and beyond to make us comfortable and feel at home.

I wouldn't give this a star but it's mandatory to leave a review. Please read as this propery manager is a fraud!!! Booked 5 nights in their apartments - wow the most unorganised operation I've stayed at and dark shadow of shame on Hawai'i and it's normally hospitable

It is interesting reading over the reviews of the property from other reviewers, we must have been lucky as we didn't hit any kind of hidden fees and the staff were helpful in allowing us to leave our baggage as we were early for check-in. They helped sort out a taxi problem

run away from this place..hidden fees everywhere. once you book you're reservation you are stuck. Can not modify or change anything. you think you are paying one amount just double that! that is your new amount! run away from this place!

The hotel is pretty shabby but it is clean and everything works. The rooms have good facilities (kitchenette, spare beds, fridge / freezer etc.) and the apartment is very big. However the air conditioning in the room was incredibly loud, I can usually sleep through anything but

Hi there! We did rent a car too. Yes, there is a parking garage but the spots are limited, I would say 6 cars can only park at a time. Call them or email them about reserving a spot. Its kind of pricey though, as far as I can remember it was $15 for 24 hours. But it's convenient, we'd rather spend our time in the beach than find a parking spot. And finding a parking spot in Waikiki is ridiculous. I hope this helps you and enjoy your stay in Oahu!!

Some hotels will have them, but the holiday surf did not. If you go on their website they have a list of cheap ones (some are around 12$), or Uber is fairly good.

How can I get there from the airport???
"get a room with a view over the canal"
"Ask 3 times if they have any rooms with windows"
"avoid the place - greedy fee mentality for a converted apartment room"
"Corner room with balcony over-looking street was nice. Other reviewers complain of noise from the street, but we didn't find it a problem."
"Always read the reviews and ask about extra fees."
US$120 - US$269 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
