For the price and location this is a nice place to stay. I had a small room (1 person) but there still could have been a chair to sit on. The soda machind for drinks and food is really a good deal. Cheaper than the ABC store.

budget friendly DID NOT add the fees to the final price when quoting the total - had to pay higher then expected (it's a math problem/not hotel's fault but the website's) It was my second trip to Waikiki and I new the area somewhat, so distance to the beach relative to the price was a good combination. Very friendly staff and no resort fees. Since they have beach towels check-out, I was fine with room cleaning every 4 days. Loved the access drinking water cooler (even though the tap water is safe to drink too). The cooler broke on my last day there, so hopefully it got fixed by now. I did not use parking or laundry machines in the basement. fridge and MW with dishes/cups/silverware really great help with getting take-out instead of relying on restaurants. Also got groceries to save on costs. Highly advise to get bus HOLO pass at closest ABC store (I reloaded it with day passes). I was upgraded to a room with balcony and enjoyed it better than a smaller basic room that they have (balcony does have chairs one can drag inside to use) there is no desk or dining table only coffee table. However, eating downstairs near pool area is advisable (there are proper tables and trashcan nearby. Bonus that was not advertised is that room key will get you for free into Bishop and ART museums. I would not pick this on a romantic gateway, but for a solo trip it was a budget option.

Look elsewhere!
Room 1512. What a run down depressing dump of a room. Dirty filthy curtains that are NOT blockout. 10 day stay and the room was serviced only 2 times. Still cost the same as before.

Location, affordable, and clean
Rooms are dated but clean. Lobby and pool area are great for those who need to work remote while on island. Each room has a small balcony, nice for early morning coffee and evening wine. VERY convenient location to beach, shopping, dining, and everything Waikiki. Staff was very friendly and prompt to respond to needs.

Be aware of additionally fee!!
while booking it did not stated that you needed to pay for parking. There is an additional fee of $35 per day. This is important to or to included or mention prior to booking. I did not like that I was blind sided.

Great Stay
Overall my stay wasn’t bad. The room wasn’t as small as some people have stated, however I did book the deluxe room with a king bed for myself. It was a pretty nice room for the price. The location was great too since it was close to the city center and most places were in walking distance. The staff members were also very sweet. The only cons I can think of were all the fees I had to pay when I checked in. I did pay in full online and ended up paying an extra $300 in fees. I read there was a cleaning fee to pay during check out so I’m not sure what the other fees were for. But other than that I did enjoy my stay and would stay here again.
