the best thing about this hotel is the location, it's right around de corner of kalakaua ave. So you don't have all the noise of the main street but still is close to everything in waikiki by walking. Rates are reasonable according to accomodations.

Stayed for a long weekend on our way back to the "Mainland" from another area in Oahu. The hotel is conveniently located 1/2 block from beach and across from Zoo. Friends had suggested we request an upper floor room which I'm glad we did as windows are not soundproof and flimsy. Room was spacious, reasonably clean and comfortable but nothing...

We stayed on the 7th floor! Windows were shuttered and do not seal so the street noise was horrible!! The shower/tub was plugged and filled up fast as you take a shower, mentioned this to them but they did not fix it. As we walked out in the morning in front of the hotel we saw a transient woman naked...

We actually stayed there for eight days. It is off Waikiki Beach but closer than many other hotels. It is not subject to the constant noise of the hotels along Kuhio Street. The staff was great and helpful when help was needed. The hotel was within walking distance of some places that we wanted to go. Very clean and well-maintained....

I booked this motel as it appeared to be everything we wanted and in the right vicinity, well we weren't let down. This was the end of a cruise hotel for us and the last few nights of our honeymoon, and when we arrived at the hotel we were told quickly that we had been upgraded four levels to a...

I've stayed here twice. Once in 2013 and once in November 2014. I recommend paying a bit extra for the diamond head room as the view is incredible. I was very happy on my first stay but on the second stay the room i was given was nothing like the first. Very dull and loud from the traffic below. I...

This is a nice hotel but it needs to fix a couple of things. If you stay here try and get a room that's higher up. It might cost a little more but the street and back alleys get quite noisy both during the day and night. The rooms themselves are actually quite nice but this spoils it a little....
