HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

I cannot say enough about this extraordinary hotel. We noticed at check-in and check-out that many other guests were from other islands in Hawaii; that's a good recommendation. Graciousness, hospitality, patience, cleanliness, spacious and hospitable rooms, and LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. It's all here. I'm a flight attendant who's been traveling to Waikiki (for pleasure, not work) multiple times per year...

Only good thing about this hotel is location as it's right across the street from the International Market Place. Overnight parking is $30 and for that "privilege" you will probably have to walk two blocks as they only have about 15 stalls in back of the hotel that are 1st come 1st serve - so don't count on it. This...

While this was a pretty good location just behind the new International Marketplace, there were several issues. The first was the noise. Rooms at the front of the building, especially on the lower floors, are subject to trucks delivering in a loading zone from 5 am onward. The desk clerk told us the biggest complaint they have is about street...

Received a group to Hawaii and needed to stay with them at this property. they wanted "budget" and found them this. Good location on back side of Waikiki (closer to Ala Wai Canal) Street isn't as noisy as some but still can hear the garbage trucks at 4am. If you want no frills and a clean, decent room then this...

We rented a room at this hotel for the day. It was very affordable, about $80. We arrived in Honolulu at 7 am and our departing flight was not until 10 pm. We have been in this situation many times and in Honolulu it is hard to find a day room. Though some chain hotels will let you buy a...

Great affordable hotel just a couple blocks from the beach. Has a real good local sports bar with friendly staff. Great for tourists who want their hockey or Australian sports fix. The international market place is just across the street. Also close to many other bars, restaurants and shops. Only down side is no pool.

Unlovely view of a concrete wall and alley. No parking available which meant I had to walk 5 blocks and pay $35 to park overnight. Busy, busy area with lots of bars and for some reason parents out pushing strollers at 10:30-11:00pm.. The hotel staff was nice and the rooms renovated and functional it's just an old concrete apartment building...

TripAdvisor doesn't allow giving those ".5" points :D The hotel is pricy & charges extra beach facing fees along with high parking fee. Luckily, we didn't rent any car... but beach fee !!! seriously !!! One needs to walk almost for 15 mints to reach the Waikiki beach... and they say they are beach facing... they don't mention this thing...

ONLY REASON I GAVE IT ONE STAR IS BECAUSE TRIPADVISOR DOESN"T HAVE A ZERO STAR OPTION!!! This hotel is a one step below a PRISON CELL!!! It's $30 to park and even then they ONLY HAVE 15 Parking spots for maybe 100+ rooms. Had to park 4 blocks away!!! I'd rather pay a bit more to stay in a room...
