Definitely enjoyed my stay here, after getting over the adjustment of not being at a typical big brand hotel. I absolutely enjoyed the old world Hawaii feel in this lovely hotel. I definitely will be back!

The staff and the service they gave was over and beyond what I expected. They anticipated my needs and provided them before we even asked. David was the one that really took care of us. He was great!

A beautiful safe oasis in the city. Don't let the street view deter you. We liked everything about it more and more as the trip went on. On site parking seamed expensive but it was worth it because it's the same or more everywhere else. We really enjoyed our stay.

Very average hotel. The rooms are great and have a small kitchenette with a microwave which saves you money on eating out. The pool area is beautiful (but very small) and the employees are very nice. Also, they lend their guests beach umbrellas and chairs. Now on to the cons. They charge a $25 daily hotel fee, but, they only come clean your room once per 7 day stay. If you pay for the parking, be prepared to be frustrated. The parking is tiny, they definitely have more cars than they should in there. To park or to leave, you'll like have to drive back and forth multiple times before you can safely park or exit the lot. Even when you park perfectly, you'll barely have enough space to open your door and grab your belongings from your vehicle. The cramped parking spaces will put your vehicle at risk of being dented/scratched. This hotel is promoted as a "family hotel" but I did not get that feel from the atmosphere. Also this hotel is not very convenient for families as it does not have an elevator. To get up to your room, you'll have to carry your luggage up 2-4 flights of very narrow stairs. Lastly, the location of the hotel is not ideal; there are always homeless people, drunks, and smokers hanging out in the vicinity of the hotel. Almost impossible to not breathe in second hand smoke when walking toward the entrance. I always felt like I had to have my guard up when walking in. My time here was okay but wouldn't really return. I'd just to just spend the extra few hundred buc
