If you intend buying a lot of grocery food whilst on holiday , suggest you walk to Walmart (20 mins) as this is a lot cheaper than the Food Pantry (10 min) or ABC stores (1 min). The near new updated kitchen in our room was very workable and saved money .....we ate out every second night !

We were very surprised of the affordability of the rooms for 5 people. The staff was very pleasant, and friendly to work with. They did a great job in finding us a great room and bringing us a baby crib. Great parking and location to Waikiki.

Like that hotel is away from the congestion of Waikiki and Hotel Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our sons enjoyed the view and the convenience of preparing their vegan meals instead of dining at restaurants. Thank You.

“Do not come to this hotel expecting a 5 star looking resort. Come to this hotel expecting a simple home away from home. Save yourself some money for a show or drink by cooking in the full kitchen. Get fit in the workout room located on the 2nd floor. A Self Service coin operated Laundry room is available for a nominal fee and the Ice Machine is also on the same floor. There are bicycles available for guests on a first come, first served basis. I rate this hotel a 4 star for all that made my stay a very affordable and comfortable one. ”
