When I arrived at the hotel, I was asked to pay for extra cleaning fee for my stay despite having paid the full price at the time of reservation online. Ironically, the room was not clean at all. There were hairs from other guests' stay. They did not leave any soaps or shampoo. They opened the door and walked into...

This hotel is for long stay holed and families or couples because this has big refrigerator and small kitchen. Their offer looked very affordable, but they requested me to pay $86 dollars as cleaning and other fees. It didn't appear anywhere and no mentioned about $90 payment in addition to $90 one night room charge. If I have to pay...

Close to the beach and close to shopping centres. Lovely hotel with great and friendly staff. Roxy was very friendly and helpful when I was checking in and also when my cable box all of a sudden stopped working. Not only was she very patient with me but she was able to move me into a different room with a...

Located across from zoo and just a half Block from Waikiki beach it is the perfect place to stay. Walking distance to everything including my favorite grass beach. Great value for the dollar. No restaurant or room service but there is a small bar.

We arrived early and dropped off our bags and after using the really dirty lobby toilets we were worried about where we had booked. On checking in we were asked to pay more resort fee than our booking showed but they agreed to change this once we showed them the email from Qantas. The room was OK but very dated,...

Not your typical hotel, but the location is one of its best features. Our room was very nice, small kitchenette, very modern, clean and a small balcony that had a great view of diamond head and the ocean! The staff was very nice, especially Roxy at the front desk, so helpful and friendly, thanks for your aloha spirit!

Paid $180 online which wasn't the best deal but still a bit better than the more familiar names in town. Nice staff at front desk who will hold your bags after check-out which was nice. However, was shocked to be billed $52 upon check-in for room cleaning services as if that is not included in a regular hotel booking. Combining...
