Great little hotel, across from beach
Posted Dec 7, 2016
The desk clerk was there to greet us at 3am, cheery and welcoming even at that hour. We were not in great shape as our flight had been delayed for 24 hours from Sydney Australia so we were a bit disorientated due to sleep deprivation. The clerk recognized us from the previous visit. When we left he came down to the street to see us off. The desk clerks were great, so friendly and you felt like family, even though we had only stayed there on our way to Australia and on our way back. We plan to return.
The upgrades to the front desk area are great. We really hope the owners keep the fifties look.
We also recommend the hotel put up a solid barrier between the lobby and the restaurant next door as the restaurant clients are always using the hotel lobby seating and the music coming our of the restaurant is dreadful.
A great stay over all except for arriving 18 hours late and missing a day in Waikiki.
Great view from our second room, unfortunately too windy to sit on balcony, but still able to stand and watch the sunset and the Waikiki activities 10 floors below.
