It was ok. Simply ok.

When I got there the AC didn't work. Asked maintenance to fix it and they did but it was either too cold or too hot. Everything was ok. Not wow, just ok. For the price it was ok. Not complaining. They served good coffee in the morning.

Good Value

Pros: Location.
Cons: Only minor complaint was bar soap samples were very poor quality and should be upgraded. .
Location: Close to Waikiki beach, major hotels and restaurants.
Great location for exploring Honolulu, quite comfortable and very clean. A bit noisy with balcony door opened due to roof top air conditioners. Good value for a hotel in this area.

Quiet Hotel 5 minute walk to beach

Pros: Was a good place to get work done during the day.
Location: Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street, including beach. Grocery store close by in the other direction. 15 min walk to Hawaiian Convention Center.
Good hotel. Lots of nice japanese and chinese fellow clients. Internet connectivity is good (wired and wireless) plus iPhone/iPad power cords. Fast elevator, efficient laundry room. Pool looked nice. Everything in the room worked and was clean.

A Nice Place to Stay.

The staff was extremely friendly, and the hotel was clean and in reasonable repair. Not a lot of frills but for the price and the closeness to Waikiki Beach it seems like it would be hard to beat. If you just want a nice place to sleep while you're in Hawai'i and don't spend a lot of time in your hotel, this is a very good choice.

Good Value for the Location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel is in a great location. It's very close to the beach. Bus transportation is right out front. The staff members were very helpful and go above and beyond. Melvin at the front desk did way more than was expected. The rooms were very clean. The only negative would be the small beds. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel. Great value for the money.

Small, cozy lobby, friendly staff

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We found the hotel to have a perfect location. Few steps to the bust stop, a few blocks to the Ala Moan Center. Just across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and lots of restaurants around. Our room was the perfect size, with a nice balcony and away from the street. It was also very clean. We enjoyed having the refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Great (FREE) internet a PLUS. Having stayed in 5 star hotels nearby during past visits, we were happy we saved that money for our dining, shopping and entertaining

Good buy

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
Good hotel, but farther from beach and Waikiki shopping than I expected. Was walk able, but you had to be up for a LONG walk. Breakfast that was included was terrible! Chinese buffet next door to hotel, but food was cold and unappetizing especially for Americans. Asians seemed to like it.Since it was free we did not eat there after the first time.

Aloha LShev - I hope you'll be happy but the restaurant has been upgraded and the breakfast menu is much better now The beach and shopping is a good 10 minute stroll - but The City Bus stops right at our driveway - easy to catch and affordable. Hope you come back someday! Warmest Aloha, Pattie.
