Fairly standard Hawaiian budget accommodations, comfortable enough for their purposes. As this is Hawaii, don't expect too much from your hotel, as they are over-used and over-worn. Instead, just use the hotel to sleep and to store your luggage, spending as little time as possible in it.The building had some severe wear and tear in that the paint in the corridors was peeling, and wallpaper was peeling in the rooms. The walls had visible cracks and scuff marks in the corridors, and there was some denting in the doors from what appear to be kicks to the doors. The elevator was in disrepair, and smelled of urine. The rooms were generally in good shape with working AC and comfortable beds. The tiny rooms have kitchenettes (at least mine did) with a decent selection of Cable TV. The room came with two small single beds, which were quite comfortable. There was a table for working, as well as a complimentary coffee pot.No Internet service here, nor any other amenities onsite. However, guests are allowed to use the pool at the Aqua Bamboo across the street, since their pool was under renovations. I was able to pick up many wifi signals from people living near the hotel room, though.The hotel doesn't feel incredibly safe, with some people blatantly living there full-time, but it is good enough for this price range.Rates start at around $50 and go as high as $100 per night. I paid $65 in mid June for a double room, booked on Orbitz.Rooms do NOT have balconies, and breakfast is NOT served.
