Friendly staff and residents, room 2304 had a nice partial ocean view. Rooms are old but for the cost compared to modern, nicer ones it's a no brainer. A hop skip and jump to Ala Moana, Waikiki Beach, Marina, Lagoon and bus stops at your door step basically! ABC store 2 doors down as well as places to eat. Pic... More

There is no concierge at the apartments you need to go to the hotel next door which was fine for us as our taxi driver told us but others couldn't work where to go.
