Staff were pleasant, mannerly and accommodating. Relaxed environment. Towels were available for beach. On-site parking available with in out access. Hotel is walking distance to beach and stores. I stay here anytime I am in waikiki. Having kitchenette with fridge makes it handy to have breakfast and cook a lunch without always going out. Great place for family with children. Good value for moneyespecially in waikiki where a budget can get out of hand quickly.
Fav hotel near the zoo and swimming in the park and restaurants and entertainment and bus Great views, park free near Kapahulu fire house , walk in park, test Waikiki Shell, walk to beach bars restaurants, take bus to airport nearby.
There's lots of better options
I booked Ewa since it was one of the cheapest options that still had a kitchen and a balcony and that was a mistake. The kitchen was unusable, the burners did not get hot on the stove, there was no spatula, the burners were tilted, and there's no room to do anything. I would have been better off with just a microwave and mini fridge, which comes in most hotel rooms anyways. The balcony was okay but incredibly loud and windy and it's looking directly into other people's rooms across the alley. Neither the tv remote nor the remote for the AC worked at all. There was also a surprising lack of outlets, which made charging difficult and inconvenient. There was also an unexpected $15 a day "resort" fee as well as $30 a day parking. Not sure what the resort fee goes to since there are literally zero amenities. The hotel itself felt incredibly dirty and the elevator smelled so strongly of urine it was almost unbearable. On my last day here they were doing construction on my floor (there was no warning) at 8 am. The rooftop would have been nice had the area been better maintained. The only benefit of this hotel was the location, but honestly I'd recommend something that is just a bit deeper into the town since this is on the edge of everything.
Service and hotel appearance
jsecmf (Oro Valley, Arizona)
Service is good. Parking is ok, however daily charge of $30 is quite pricey. Hotel rooms appear to be old, need to upgrade kitchen appliances, bathrooms need vent and new amenities. Hotel room door looks old. Curtain inside hotel rooms are dirty with stains. Bed is comfortable. AC works well, not too noisy.
Great Hotel and Staff
A wonderful hotel managed by great staff. Unfortunately we encountered noisy tenants in the adjacent room. This scenario was not resolved. I do strongly recommend this hotel due to its affordability as well as location.
