We stayed in room 1012, which I believe I found on tripadvisor. I really have mixed feelings about the place. On one hand, it was a good deal. On the other, it was pretty run down. The main reason we stayed here is that we discovered that most of the hotels we had previously used in Waikiki won't accept more...

Room 1012 - This was a cute "little" condo located a block from all the action. If you have more than 4 people (it sleeps 6) choose another condo though. It has one bedroom with 2 queen size (I think) beds and a couch that folds out. The mattresses in the bedroom were comfortable but the mattress on the fold...

Booked the studio through Vacation Internationale (WorldMark timeshare). The bldg and rooms were clean but dated. I was seriously expecting to see the cast of Threes Company at any moment. The bldg is made up of owners and other timeshares so the experience will be different depending on who you book with. The room we stayed in is perfect for...

We stayed two nights here after a Hawaiian cruise. Truthfully I was trying to save a few dollars. Don't make the same mistake I made. We arrived after the office was closed and the guard was unwilling to help. As I booked this room online thru priceline there was some disconnect between the check in procedure. The security guard was...

We stayed in Unit 2403, which was on the canal side, for a week mid-April, 2013. This was our first time staying in Honolulu so when we booked, we were not sure if we would be renting a car. We rented thru a vacation rental company and saw it offered free parking and wifi, the daily rate seemed good ($90/nite)...

Our family stayed for a week. Our 1 bedroom unit faced town and the ocean. It was extremely noisy all night long..lots of sirens...so make sure you take ear plugs. There was a small, noisey ac in the bedroom, but you have to keep patio door open during the night because the rest of the unit becomes so stuffy. The...

We recently stayed at Royal Kuhio with our 2 teenage children in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit over looking Waikiki Beach. The unit was clean and spacious and included a full kitchen, and the proximity to the beach and shopping centres was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised and would stay here again.

This resort is not spectacular but it does have a full kitchen so you can make a few meals versus eating out the entire time you are in Oahu. We did like the proximity to the beach and the market. Overall we would stay again for the cost.

The property is out dated, and there really isn't a view available. However, it is in a great location. Everything is in walking distance - Waikiki beach, International Marketplace, etc. If you want to go North, you'll need a car. The property has a rec center. They do charge to use wi-fi. We didn't spend much time in our room,...
