Funky, but close to the beach.Posted Jul 23, 2014
Wifi didn't work at first, the room is old fashioned and funky, no basic things like sugar, salt and pepper. Bring your own! Hotel added a cleaning fee on top of all the money I had already paid expedia for fees and taxes. Wasn't told of this upon checkin. Parking is 25 a day, which really adds up.

Good LocationPosted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: Loved location on the beach. Scenery was fantastic from both sides , night & day.
Cons: Shower in room could be more modernised. One of the elevators was out of action for our entire stay . Vertical blinds in room did not work properly.
Location: Plenty of dining choices, beach outside door, shopping & public transport out the door.
Loved location. Right on beach. Close to restaurants & shopping facilities. Wife loved all those ABC shops. Great area for transport. Tour guides and local people all very friendly.

Spacious hotel within a few steps of the BeachPosted May 5, 2014
Pros: Convenience. Facilities. Home away from home
Location: Walking distance to shops & eateries.
Well laid out apartment with everything from full Kitchen & Laundry facilities to comfortable beds etc except for a pool but this is not a negative as the beach is outside your door. Ideal for families. Hotel has security on site. Kenny & staff are efficient and polite. Great experience.

Pros: Isaac at the front desk was nice, friendly and helpful.

Good but disappointed we could not use the pool next door.

great placePosted Jan 14, 2014
Pros: Clean. Staff was great. Location was perfect.
Cons: Pillows! In this day, thin foam pillows just don't cut it with me. Twin beds were a little small but for 2 wanting separate beds, this worked.
Location: Perfect. Quiet, walking distance (and I am not fit!) to everything we wanted. Right on the beach - not across the street but right on the beach.
One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed at. Had a studio twin bedded room, with kitchen and lovely lanai. Overlooked the park and the ocean. So quiet and restful compared to other places I have stayed in Honolulu. Front desk staff were all pleasant and helpful. We had stopped at the bigger hotel next door for directions and were given a run around to 4 different people - at the Castle, the staff answered our question, printed directions, called cabs - immediately. Professionals all the way. Kitchen was fully equipped. No restaurant but lots to choose from in the area. had breakfasts at Denny's every morning, reasonable and consistent. Easy walk to Ala Moana shopping centre - the front desk gave us a card for discounts at the grocery store. Also easy walk to the main street and to busier part of Waikiki. But loved the calm and quiet of the area. Park next door was soothing. Lanai was large enough to enjoy the sunsets and other times too.

Great hotel on the beachPosted Jan 13, 2014
Great room, with a fantastic view of the beach from the balcony. The facilities were excellent and everything you could possibly want was provided. The only thing would change was the beds were a little firm.

Comfortable hotel in a great locationPosted Jan 3, 2014
Pros: position, presentation and size of living area in the apartment.
Cons: Moving main bed to access from both sides. Closing off second bedroom area
Location: Direct access to the beach, easy walk to main road for shops, resturants, also walkable to Ala Moana shopping mall as well but bus stops at the door.
Light and spacious apartment style room with amble accomodation for a young family. Great size bathroom with laundry facilities a definite plus. Good kitchen as well. Main bed was small by hotel standards and was crammed up against a wall in a small room made it awkward for one partner. The concertina door to divide the living area from from "second " bedroom didn't go all the way across so made privacy and noise were an issue. The staff were accomodating and pleasant. The hotel is in a fantastic position on the beach with pleasant views over the park. It is very close to the main road - resturants, shops etc without being right in the choas.

Nice PlacePosted Jan 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Really have no qualms with the hotel other than signage to let you know where they are and to direct you where to park. Isaac, the front desk attendant, was great. Room was nice, location is good. We did not like Waikiki Beach however, it was too busy for us, reminded us of Vegas a little. If that's your thing this hotel is a nice stay though.
