An average hotel a couple of blocks from the beach, staff are very friendly & helpful & they do a free cocktail afternoon once a week also a free bus to the outlet centres. Rooms are average, try to get a beach view or mountain view one as ours looked directly into someone elses room

We got a great price, we could walk a couple blocks to get to Waikiki, or take a complimentary shuttle to the mall. A motorcycle and luxury car rental was just a couple blocks away. We rented a motorcycle...

I have stayed at this hotel twice now. What brings me back is the price and only the price. I find that most hotel rooms in Waikiki are pretty much the same, the only main variance is the price and that mainly being dictated by the distance to the beach. A shower is a shower, a bed is a bed....

This hotel was part of an all-inclusive package that we signed up for. It's an older hotel, and could use some renovations, but it's fine for a place to sleep and store your things. We had so many activities going on so it was sufficient. The breakfast could use a little help though. They need to learn to cook eggs!...
