    Cute older place. Service is great. They really know Aloha here. Ocean front place close to a few beaches. Very limited parking available and really tough parking lot to navigate. Super quiet and peaceful at night.

    The price varies but stays below the average of other seaside hotels considerably. In May 2016 we paid about $135 per night for a room with a kitchenette. Those rooms without a kitchenette were less expensive.
