Old hotel just across the street from the beach.

Cons: No way to have this bargain if you refurbish and renovate the building.
Location: This is Honolulu in Oahu, Hawaii, what else?
The hotel is dating and showing its age with somewhat worn furniture and decaying lights and other lamps. However, the price is right being more than half (for a room facing buildings without sea view) that of the next hotel being located just on the famous and crowded Kalakaua avenue following the Waikiki beaches. The lobby provides towels and you cross Kalakaua to be on the beach ready to jump in the Ocean. So the room is just used to sleep. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Recommend.

Across from Beach but is that enough?

Pros: The staff and the bathroom.
Cons: The curtains on the door and the window by the door should be replaced with the kind of curtains that do not allow light to come in.
Location: As far as location, it was a perfect location and right across the street from the beach area I like to swim. Plus close to everything going on in Wa
The hotel is very old and worn. The staff was nice and helpful. The elevator was definitely old and maybe 5 people could fit. My room was in the middle of a lighted hallway and it was like a dungeon. Dark and unappealing. The entrance door and a window on the side of the door was the only exterior light. The entrance door was made of old glass louvers and so was window on the side of the door. The curtain on the door and window was old and not thick enough to prevent the light from the hallway from shining in. I have paid for less and gotten better and I have paid for the same amount and gotten better. Fortunately for me, I was there to visit family so wasn't in the room much but the light coming into the bedroom did not allow me to sleep well.

Good location, older hotel obstructed beach view

The hotel had a good location but I booked an ocean view room and could not see the ocean. They should have made me aware of this ahead of time as I would have just booked a regular room since a huge tree was blocking everything. Overall just an ok experience.

Nice hotel, close to the beach.

Pros: Cleanliness of room, close proximity to the beach, friendly staff.
Cons: Air conditioning in lobby would be great and faster elevators!
Location: The beach is right across the street. McDonald's, Eggs N Things right next door for eating. ABC Store right next door and other stores nearby.
Not a luxury hotel but nice hotel to stay on a tight budget. Right across the street from Waikiki beach, stores and restaurants within walking distance. Parking was available but at a nearby hotel and only valet ($22/day plus tip). Front desk staff was great, especially Lave who made my stay very comfortable with his friendly service--he made sure I got a nice room with a partial view of the ocean when I checked in and also made sure I got a shuttle back to the airport the day of my departure.

Great Location

This is the forth time we have stayed here. We like it here, mainly because of the location, right across the street from the beach. We don't go to Hawaii to stay in the room. The rooms are modest and the staff are great.
