The views and location were great! It's close to everything and is within walking distance to multiple beaches and a lot of shopping. The only downside was that the room was outdated and when we arrived, the counter by the kitchen sink looked as if it had been broken and halfway repaired with some putty. The room also looked as if it hadn't been 100% cleaned before we arrived as the floors were dirty in spots and some clothes from a previous guest were left behind a chair.

I did not like how difficult it was to check in. We did not realize there wouldn’t be a desk to talk to someone. We asked a maid for towels and she would not give us any and said call the front desk. We didn’t know who to call? The room was not clean at all. The shower had possible mold in it, they never gave us trash bags to clean and we thought maybe they would come into the room at some point and clean up but that never happened either. The elevator could ruin your whole trip. One was down and seems like it has been for a few years without being fixed. The other one had to service 40 floors and sometimes took over a half hour to even get to our floor. Feel that no one really cared how inconvenient this could be. We had the pool mostly to ourselves and were very satisfied with the pool and hot tub. The view from the room was amazing.

I like the location of the property. Front desk person was rude. Elevators were down one day and we had to take the stairs to the 9th floor. Ice machine was not in service the second day up to when we left. The room was outdated, had a beat up rusty fridge, bathroom had black stuff(mold?) on the shower head as well as the a/c unit which was kind of alarming. No partial ocean view as stated on booking. I took pictures of the room for proof. Overall, disappointing.

Check-in was difficult because there is no front desk at this hotel. The directions they gave me to check-in were incorrect (go inside the lobby and around a corner and pick up a phone which will dial directly to them right next door). The lobby door was locked and the phone was outside and around a corner. A lady was explaining to a large group of people that both of the elevators were broken and we’d have to use the stairs (we were on the 39th floor)! They offered to refund our money if we wanted to stay somewhere else. The trip cost us an extra $700 to stay somewhere else last minute because of their poor quality hotel. A man who worked there walked up as we were leaving and admitted the elevators are down all the time and they only fix one elevator at a time for budget reasons. NEVER staying here again! We were almost stuck in Oahu for 5 days with nowhere to stay because of this hotel! Also, whenever we would call them, they never answered the phone. It always resulted in us leaving a message and them calling us back much later.

Close to the beach but very old and dirty, cockroaches. Extra charges that run up to around 300 dallors that were not revealed and they state they are a condo rental. 50.00 a day to have your room cleaned, around 62.38 which they stated is a resort fee and a 200.00 holding deposit as they state which was not in Travelocitys sales. One elevator not working and breaking down every day, I would take this place off your list of places to stay in, very dirty.

BLACK MOLD IN ROOMS I booked a "full week" here at this hotel and left on the 3rd day. Me and my girlfriend both got sick and we started to question how we both got sick. We ended up finding Black Mold in our AC unit. We called Kaiser hotline and and confirmed that we got sick and the black mold was really black mold. I told the Asst, Manager and showed her pictures. She gave us a new room, yet the new room had Black Mold in it as well plus no light bulbs. Thats when we checked out and left to find a new hotel. We got a refund for nights we did not stay! But.... After we got back I found out the hotel charged us in fees. They charged us a full week of resort fee's even though we checked out after 3 days. They charged us a larger fee for the AC unit claiming that we broke them when we took pictures. Surprisingly the fee's and the money refunded come out to be about the same price equaling each other out. We both had to go to urgent care when we got back home as well and got prescriptions to help bring our immune systems back up. I call the Asst manager and they hang up or tell me they will call me back and never do. 2 MONTHS LATER AND I AM STILL TRYING TO GET MY MONEY BACK. I have proof of hospital visit and proof of unauthorized charges.

To start, they charged an extra $15 per day as hotel fee, which was nowhere indicated. Of the two elevators, one was out of order throughout my stay, and the second was out of order one of the day. Waiting for elevator could take up to 30 min!! Room said partial beach view. At the 14th floor, the view was a slit between 2 buildings. The bathroom is very small and uncomfortable. The closet door was unhinged. The only thing I liked was the A/C and the kitchen. They charge $50 extra for cleaning the room throughout the stay. So basically we didn’t have trash cans emptied out until we left. They have so many extra charges it’s unbelievable!!
