Hawaii Vacation

Pros: This hotel was clean and updated, It was within walking distance of many restaurants and attractions. The breakfast was good and had different options
Cons: If there are any suggestions I would make, it would be to have more information on local attractions in the lobby so guests could get more information
Location: We went to ride a submarine, go shopping, go to public beach areas, and to a luau within a half mile range.
We enjoyed our stay and would use the hotel again.

Nice affordable hotel close to the beach, shops

Pros: Location, size of room, and free well stocked breakfast!
Cons: The rest room is not accessible on the first floor without your room key! If you have not checked in, or simply forgot your key, you had to wait til
Location: It was close to a small beach and waterfront, with numerous restaurants, shops, etc. within walking distance.
We arrived almost an hour early due to flight times. traffic. I was a little disappointed that we were not allowed to check in but were told that the type of room we reserved was not quite ready. Needless to say, the hotel clerk gave us a pass to use the rest room, change and sit near the pool if we wanted instead. There was a noisy group occupying the small pool area, so we chose to just wait in the lobby until our room was ready.

Good hotel in great location.

Pros: The room and the fact that is new
Cons: The fees for parking should not be extra it should be already includd in the price soecially since its a fee per night. Very disaponted with that.
Location: The location is withing walking distance to anything you might need
Hotel is small, but clean with all the basic things you need. Has large rooms with breakfast. Ofers laundry a small pool/jacuzzi and a gym. Breakfast was had good options, pool/jacuzzi were great every time we went back to the hotel to relax. The gym not so much is very small and doesn't have ventilation therefore it stinks and could it stand it so I left without working out. The hotel has extra fees, one of them is parking which I though it was pricy. Other than that it was a good stay!
