When we arrived we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom 2 bath suite! This was great because there were 5 of us sharing 1 room. The room was very spacious and clean. The windows all opened to create a nice breeze when we left our front door open, which we did often. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, we...

This hotel looks good from the street, but is completely different behind the facade. The location is fantastic for the price but the rooms are grubby, tiny and in desperate need of renovation. I doubt any money has been spent on the rooms since construction ( which I estimate to be around 1960). The air conditioning did nothing for the...

We spent three nights at this hotel and found it more than adequate for a vacation where we wanted to save money on the accommodation so that we could spend on other things! Right in the heart of Waikiki, the main shops and beautiful Waikiki beach just around the corner. Pick up for tours and Luaus just outside the door...

We enjoyed our 3-day "Stay" at this hotel. The Stay hotel is just around the corner from high-end hotels that you pay 3 times as much for. The desk staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean.

Windows do not fully close therefore, it is very noisy and get woken up by sirens, beeping horns and people talking on their phones outside the room. The curtains don't serve it's purpose and lots of light shines through making it difficult to sleep in. There is no main ceiling light - need to use a standing lamp. Other than...
