This was an affordable stay near Waikiki Beach and just a short walk to tons of restaurants and shopping. The beach was a little further down the strip, but an enjoyable walk and easy to navigate once you’ve got the route down. The room (King size) was small but manageable for my partner and I, but the shower was really snug. We stayed 7 nights and there wasn’t regular housekeeping. We had to schedule it for halfway through our stay and call for towels daily. It wasn’t ideal but the staff was always prompt and polite. Parking was an ordeal as there are less than 10 spots and it’s $35/night plus tax. You’ll have to get a parking pass to leave in your dash but have to be in by 10pm or they’ll close the gate to the lot. This wasn’t a huge problem since most shops and restaurants start closing around 7-10, but it would’ve been nice to have guaranteed parking if we’re paying for it. The pool was really cute but we didn’t spend any time there. It looked like people were having lots of fun there though and enjoying the fun swing seats at the bar.
