Booked one night in the Aloha Place through Expedia. Was one of the cheapest in the area, but it was only one night so didn't have much to lose. At first we didn't know what to expect - the key was attached to a pin board outside 'reception' with directions to the room. There didn't seem to be anybody about. so we made our way into the house and had a look around. It really was a home from home. We had the place to ourselves. Lots of little extras - internet access, cds, dvds, games, local information, flashlight, selection of 'novelty' slippers at the door, snorkle gear, even a selection of walking boots at hand to save getting our own dirty. The room was small but had everything you could have wanted and more. Beds really cosy.
Walked up to a Thai restaurant (it started to rain so we just helped ourselves to the selection of umbrellas at the door) which was fantastic! Would recommend to anyone wanting to explore the area. It was such a nice break from all the other standard hotels we stayed in while travelling around Hawaii.
