The staff was great to work with but the rooms were nasty. Declined two rooms due to awful stains on the carpet and cockroaches in the first room. Third room was cleaner but still had bad stains even after being cleaned the day before we arrived. The sliding glass doors were very hard to open and close. Shower head needed...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 March 2017

I cannot say enough about this extraordinary hotel. We noticed at check-in and check-out that many other guests were from other islands in Hawaii; that's a good recommendation. Graciousness, hospitality, patience, cleanliness, spacious and hospitable rooms, and LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. It's all here. I'm a flight attendant who's been traveling to Waikiki (for pleasure, not work) multiple times per year...

After I checked in I went out, when I came back in the evening I found my room invaded by some insect! This was even after I closed the bathroom window. Roaches and bugs were in the bathroom and I found one crawling on my bed. I went to the reception and showed them picture, they gave me immediately new...

The hotel is in the heart of Waikiki. It's on a busy street in the morning well most of the day so the noise can be a bit of a problem period but the hotel is been thoughtful and giving you ear plugs. I was wondering what they were for in the beginning because in the daytime you don't notice...

Our whole family stayed here over spring break. large room. Large lanai. No pool. Room was dusty and poorly maintained. Carpet had stains.

Only good thing about this hotel is location as it's right across the street from the International Market Place. Overnight parking is $30 and for that "privilege" you will probably have to walk two blocks as they only have about 15 stalls in back of the hotel that are 1st come 1st serve - so don't count on it. This...

While this was a pretty good location just behind the new International Marketplace, there were several issues. The first was the noise. Rooms at the front of the building, especially on the lower floors, are subject to trucks delivering in a loading zone from 5 am onward. The desk clerk told us the biggest complaint they have is about street...
