OK, so its older ( as are most of the hotels on the strip), smaller, fewer amenities ( namely no pool) and looks like a pineapple BUT it has everything ( well almost) you'll need for a holiday to Hawaii.
As there were 5 of us we needed two rooms.Both 'partial' ocean view on 7th ( of 14 I think) floors. It looks kind of cute against all the neighbouring behemoths. Rooms are small but functional and all have balconies. Have been 'recently' renovated ( I'd guess within 5 years).
The staff ( front of house and housekeeping) were excellent.The location is superb.
Downsides: no restaurant ( although no shortage of local options), maybe a little tight on parking, no pool/gym ( but theres the Pacific across the road and a gym 20m away), and its pretty noisy around there.Oh, I found the beds a bit soft, and I was a bit put off by the mattress cover ( which was industrial, but I suppose its a 'honeymoon' destination...you get the idea).
We thought for the price range it was great. We didnt care about the $15 ( now$18) 'ammenity' fee as you'd normally pay for internet, movies, newspaper anyhoo.
