Hotel is over 100 years old. No a/c, windows stick. Some doors don’t have good safety locks. Towels not changed. No glasses or shampoo in bathroom. Be prepared for a quirky hotel.

Lee and Jason were so hospitable and welcoming! And their cat, Pete, too! The room and property is well loved and feels like you’re living in ancient Hawaii. The bed, furniture, and linens were lovely. We could hear the beautiful sounds of coqui frogs and monsoon all night. It does take about 10 minutes for the water to heat up, but we were given a heads up about that :). Can’t wait to see the place after the renovation!

This is a good property. It is not a 5 star property but it is very clean, historical and comfortable The morning breakfast includes fresh fruits (at least papaya and pineapple) to your discretion. The staff if very friendly and helpful. They are trying to modernize the place but again it is historic, comfortable, very clean and affordable the way it is right now.

I used this hotel for one-night stay. The hotel was clean for its age, and thanks to the new and powerful fan, it was not too hot or humid. The statues in the lobby are interesting. The staff kindly warned that it would take took long to get water hot: indeed it took ~10 min to get hot water. With this advice given, I managed to wait patiently.
