This hotel looks like it was quite amazing back in the day. Now, not so much. I have to start by saying we got an amazing room/car deal for this hotel from Hawaiian airlines. The staff was all very friendly and it is in a great location. You are in walking distance to Lydgate beach & an awesome playground. The room was pretty large but very dated. Old furniture, tv & shower just to name a few. There was no lanai, just a large window that looked out at a "garden" area and right at the other building. They do offer on-site laundry but it is only 1 washer and 1 dryer. Also, they offer a free fruit breakfast. That was the most disappointing part of my whole stay here. It is literally 1 slice of papaya, 1 slice honeydew, 1 slice cantaloupe, and 1 slice watermelon. It was dried out and the slices were small. I skipped it all together on the second day.
I think for the price this wasn't a bad hotel. I would stay here again.

The Hilton purchased this hotel and totally redid it. It is now called Hilton Garden Inn.
