Our room was on the 9th floor overlooking Diamond Head. The view was spectacular. We loved the staff. They will outdo themselves to take care of you. It was our anniversary and when we checked in they gave us a bottle of wine and a goody basket. It was wonderful! And Keola, your the best!!! You really know how to...

Stayed here for one night while waiting for the rest of my party to arrive before moving onto Waikiki... Overall: 1) Great price. Paid $75/night for a clean, decent room. Seriously cannot beat that. 2) Room: Partial city view room had more than was expected (couch in the room, free Internet via ethernet hook-up, small balcony, and many channels on...

This hotel is well located close to the beach across the road from the Hilton Hawaiian Village but at rates much lower than a beachfront hotel. It is also a short walk to the Ala Moana Center unlike many Waikiki Hotels. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful -they upgraded me to a better rooms upon arrival as the standard rooms...

What a great hotel. My husband and I checked in, everything about the room was wonderful except we didn't like the balcony, we wanted one with chairs that you could sit on. We went to the desk and requested a new room, they said no problem, we packed our bags and left them in the room they moved them for...

Geart get away for the price! Used the Snooze and Cruze Option with includes rental car, free parking. Jr Deluxe Suite is a sweet deal. Ask for the best room in this category. Attendants were a graet help. Ideal location for getting around. Bring your own GPS or rent one to get around the Island with ease. Peace!!!!

I comapred rates on a single occupant room for over 1 month before choosing this hotel. The room was clean,with friendly staff and good rates. I spent 1 week there and couldnt find anything to complain about concerning the hotel itself. Will choose this one again.

12 story hotel on the west end of Waikiki - good location, close to (but not on) the beach, across the street from Hilton Hawaiian Village. Rooms were clean with nice sized mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker. Free non-wireless internet in the room - timed out a lot but otherwise very nice. Comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Fitness room has an elliptical,...

Had a terrific stay. Found the room to be larger than I expected, huge plasma tv, very clean and one of the most comfortable king sized beds I have ever slept in. Tried the breakfast at the IHOP next door but preferred the 24 hour coffee house on the corner, next to the IHOP. The swimming pool is very small...
