            Individual guest reviews

            • Location and price excellent, Waikiki Beach also some fantasitic Japanese restruants EnviRonment also good, the hotel was just off the main shopping/tourist street. Internet access in lobby was useful for quick inquiries and staff were fantastic. The room was nice and the food was great. Each concierge was also knowledgeable and helpful about to see and do.

              Dated surroundings and the Roomservice cleans all the dirty dishes for no extra charge. Old furniture, towels not changed regularly and the courtyard and pool concrete is also worn.

            • The location was fabulous and the room was nice for the price especially since hotels in Waikiki can be VERY expensive. Staff were very helpful, the pool was nice, and the hot tub even nicer.

              The sofa beds were not that comfortable.

            • Central location to the beach, good value and great price. The staff were very friendly and the two studios we stayed in were perfect and had everything.

              The hotel has a 2 1/2 star rating i believe, and i'd say this is fairly accurate, beds are small and not comfortable.

              Decoration dated and we liked nothing about the hotel. Rotten bathroom facilities.
