This is our second stop off here in the last few months. One thing I have realised about Waikiki as a while is that the buildings are all old and dated. The hotels are worn out and tired. Some have had rooms painted but it all needs major work to make it the modern and clean place people coming here...

The place is disgusting conditions. Our room had cockroaches on the walls, coming out of the drain in the bathroom sink, on the bathroom floor. There were huge stains on the carpet. The walls were filthy.

Ok this plc ace is in a decent position however you would trade that for decent amenities. Old drab , needs an overhaul. I don't wouldn't do more than an overnight stay here. Do many better options around that have seen some maintenance in the last 30 years

I stayed at the hotel recently and while the location was great, the hotel was dirty and there was cockroaches. And this wasn't the worst part...I left a pair of very expensive swimwear hanging on the drying rack in the bathroom and when I returned to the room they were missing. I reported it to the front desk but nothing...

This place was horrible for us. It's dirty, noisy and so far overdue for an update it's almost ready for demolition. There were even ear plugs beside the bed! It might be close to the new glossy shopping center but shopping isn't the main reason people come to Waikiki.

We stayed 2 nights on the way back from Maui. The room was large and spacious but very sparsely furnished - just one king bed, table and one chair and bedside table and lamps. One chair in the whole room! No sofa, no coffee table. The hotel is old and could do with a major refurbishment. Staff were friendly enough...

TO BE GIVEN A MISS AT ALL COST. Thankfully we had only one night booked. The room smelled awful, ants running along the furniture, fridge & coffee machine not cleaned out. The noise from the a/c was like an aircraft taking off so no wonder they left earplugs for your use on the bedside table. Our room overlooked the car...

These people are VERY dishonest! Arrived for check-in and was told their parking lot(which had maybe 15 spots)was full and that I would have to find parking somewhere in the city and walk to the hotel(absurd much?). I couldn't find anywhere remotely close to the hotel to park, so I called to cancel my reservation as they made it impossible...
