This is a locally owned hotel! Smaller hotel but it was clean and nice. There is a cafe/bar that’s fun to spend time at. Towels in the lobby to take to beach. Staff was friendly and helpful with anything needed. Clean spacious bathrooms, comfy beds. I would stay here again if ever in Waikiki again.
