Good location, poor upkeep

Room size was good, but very dingy, dirty and outdated. The staff was great, very courteous. Location was amazing. Within walking distance of the best parts of Wakiki.

OK Good location

Pros: Convenient location , generally quiet
Cons: Rooms are some what out dated. The wi-fi is only in the lobby.
OK, but no wi-fi in rooms, only in lobby. Surrounding neighborhood is slightly seedy. Close to bus stops and guests can use shuttle to Ala Moana.

Nothing good about this experience

There is about 12 tiny parking spots in front of the hotel in which you have TO PAY TO PARK! If you can't find a spot there ($20 btw) you have to park at the hotel at cross the street for $30. Another glorious feature that was not revealed until we arrived was a mysterious $10 charge which we were told was for the pool and ameninities?! Seriously?! The room was lackluster at best and there were questionable individuals hanging around outside. My advice; don't even stay in Honolulu. Go to another part of the island or another island altogether
