This place is a real gem. First, the location -- it's perfect. About one block from the beach, one block from all the great restaurants, shops, bars & cafes of Kalikaua Avenue, and one block away from a major bus stop on Saratoga that can take you virtually anywhere on the island (such as Pearl Harbour). The hotel itself is run by a very friendly group of people who believe in keeping things the way they are. It's a low rise (two story) motel type property that reminds you more of the 60s. They even use typewriters at the front desk (I love it!). Our room was very clean, the lanai was wonderful, great pool ambience makes for a perfect place to relax and have a beer after a long day. This would be first choice to stay when we return next time. Even my 14-year old son raved about the place, so it's teenager tested! This place is a terrific choice compared to the many boxy high-rise hotels everywhere in Waikiki. I really really hope that they can hold on to the property and keep it unique for many years to come.

Shah Rukh says: They have a very nice Japanese restaurant on the property that serves fine food. Try it!

Shah Rukh's tips: The rooms on the second floor looking out to the pool have a really nice ambience, though they cost a bit more. Try to avoid the rooms toward the back of the hotel since it tends to get a bit noisy in the morning due to traffic on Saratoga.

This is a very charming small hotel in the heart of Waikiki. Waikiki feels like a large shopping mall, so it was nice to stay somewhere that felt family owned. The rooms are very outdated, but impeccably clean and the grounds are very nice. The staff was kind and helpful. Would highly recommend for a short stay.

We stayed for 4 nights. The rooms are good enough. Beds are comfortable showers strong and plenty of hot water and towels.

Our room 124 was next to the hotel restaurant which meant we got some noise in the evening but it was ok.

The AC is good but a little noisey better to use the fans and open the louvres

Close to all the shops, restaurants and beach without being in the high rises.

The grounds and pool are lovely.

If you like family this is the place to stay. Regulars come back every year and it's easy to see why. I'm from Haw'aii and travel back annually to spend time with family. Oahu is known as the "Gathering Place" and this hotel is a wonderful place to experience that. It's a refuge in the heart of Waikiki. Lots of family's and friends stay there. You'll find them around the pool at all hours of the day. Although the rooms are comfortable, there's no internet and remotes to encourage you to stay in them. The kitchenettes make it convenient to prepare meals and drinks for family and friends to share in the pool area which has wireless connection. It's very relaxing. I stayed recently with my daughters and their friend for five nights and we all had a great time. The hotel design is Japanese as are many of it's guests, but that just adds to the exended family feel.
It's not perfect. Bath water can take a while to warm, parking is limited and it's a bit hard to make a reservation. However, the imperfections just makes the place feel more like a home away from home. Oh, and if you go, pay attention to the detail and care given to the landscaping. It's worth appreciating.

Room Tip: Get a room near the pool. A bit louder perhaps, but the lanai's overlook the pool.

The decore is dated, but everything else is phenomenal...

You won't find this kind of thing anymore, it's a sea of concrete in Waikiki... This place has a pool surrounded by 2 floor walkups... The only thing I'd see changed would be a little more soundproofing.

The owner of this place isn't interested in a property that generates maximum revenue, their interested in owning a place worth visiting :)

Room Tip: Get 'seaside' or 'coolside' (facing the ocean), preferably on the 2nd floor... The L...
