Great Location for the $$$!!!

I've traveled to Wikiki and stayed here both times. If your goal is to travel to Wikiki and bypass a bunch of tourists, this is the best hotel to stay at for the price. To give you an idea, I'm in my 20s and just wanted to travel to an island for a few days, chillax on the beach, scooter around the island and enjoy the sunset, all while being thoughtful of my budget. This hotel gave me that luxury. Rarely saw kids (unless I was at the beach). Modest places to eat at right on the strip. Caveat, there is a nightclub on the 2nd floor, which I NEVER heard the residual noise at night. The nightclub does cater to the male-male variety, not that that was a problem. I think the hotel has a pool, but why use it when the pacific freaking ocean is a block down the road!!! It was a great location since it's near the beach/ocean, Diamond Head and the Zoo. The room was quaint. Nothing spectacular, but in reality, the majority of my time was spent outside. I just used the room for sleep, toilet, AC, sink and shower (all of which worked, were clean and were in good working order). Now, would I spend a few more bucks to impress my lady-friend, of course, but if she's a little granola, she'll understand that in this economy, you have to make the most economical decision :)
