Good location
It’s location is fantastic, closed to the beach or shopping malls but my family trip is to see Hawaii sceneries not to shopping. Some of the fees were not posted when I was booking the hotel. For example: parking fees:39$ and amenities: I think 35$. When I booked the hotel, I paid for resort fees. I thought that will include everything. Amenities weren’t that good either; coffee machine for you, a pool and a gym. If you travel for a week like me, you will probably try to see as many sceneries as you can or hang out at the beaches.

Convenient hotel to stay at
Service by Jeff was great and he help extend my stay for an extra night, as my flight was cancelled and I was able to stay in the same room. Unfortunately there was a few mishaps during my 3 nights stay though, such as a busted water main which we couldn't have a shower late at night and also triggered the alarm system the following morning which many people had to exit the building at 6.30am. The gym does needs some yoga mats as I couldnt find any when I was training at the gym. Overall still happy with the stay.

Reasonably priced outdated property.
It is an outdated property with very limited kitchen utensils, they were dirty too. Filter water & Coffee (k-cup) was available 24/7 which was plus. This property will undergo a major renovations and brand name change next month (As per front desk clerk). Overall reasonable priced hotel with just for overnight sleep. Also it was 10-15 min walk to all major shopping and Waikiki beach area which not bad. Employees were all nice and friendly.

Old building but clean and cheap
The price for 6 nights was about $600 cheaper than all my other searches. So I would say we got what we paid for. Decent location near the beach and an ABC next door was very convenient for food and drinks. Pretty old, run down building but clean room and pool. The small kitchenette was convenient so we weren’t eating out everyday. Overall, I’ve stayed in worse but for what we paid It was decent.
