I wanted a cheap hotel room and that is exactly what I got. Bathroom floor was disgusting -even after requesting that the floor be cleaned again-still GROSS. I ended up scrubbing it myself -cloths came up pretty darn black! The single bed was comfortable but the queen needs a new mattress-it had large 'dips" in it. Didn't rent a car so no comment on the parking charge-please remember folks that you pay for parking EVERYWHERE on the island and parking space is at a premium.
Noise-well maybe I am just getting old but it think the door slamming and partying should be done by midnite.... Nope - 2:30am the "exchange students" were still out and about.. Security did get them to quiet down tho.
This hotel seems to be a mecca for language students and backpackers. OR the elderly. There was lots of early 20s folk and the balance seemed to be the elderly. Saw no families here.
The Location was super tho! Only one block from Kuhio Ave and about 3 blocks from the beach. Very central and easy to get to.
I would stay here again -now that I know to bring earplugs and Lysol wipes.
