Excellent old style hotel on the back streets of Waikiki. As an Oahu resident for 30 years we have stayed at most of the large name brand hotels at one time or another. Generally they have devolved into faceless boxes in which to spend the night. The White Sands has something different - character. It could be nicer, it could have newer furniture and fixtures, but then it wouldn't be such a bargain. The pool area is actually more comfortable to sit around than most hotels - lots of umbrellas and coconut trees. The room had a small kitchen which is very handy. The place was clean. The staff was very friendly.
We will be back for our next Waikiki adventure!
Mahalo White Sands!
