Just okay.
The place was kind of hard to find. When we arrived, no one was at the front desk, we were very confused and it took about 15 minutes for someone to actually acknowledge us. Then about 30 minutes later we get our room.

When we first arrived at the hotel, it was very nice and clean. At night we did find quite a few(6-7) bugs crawling near the coffee area in our room. Staff handled it very well, offered a new room, however we found the same bugs there. Manager upgraded us to a new room and had staff clean and spray the area. Was an inconvinience at first but the staff handled it very well, and were very accommodating to the situation.

Super friendly staff
Very friendly staff, who care about how we feel about the service and everything. Room is clean. The only issue was the room we had was too close to the main road which is noisy at night. Other than that everything else is great!

We only stayed one night, before boarding a ship. Good restaurants close by and bus service, easy to get around. Service personal was good at the hotel. Furnishings were old, no microwave.

Chose this hotel for our staycation. It's walking distance from the Ala Moana mall and a couple of bars and restaurants. The lanai/pool area was under construction and not available for use. The person working the front desk was slow to assist us during our check in.
