Overall I enjoyed my stay. The staff are VERY nice and the grounds are pretty. Wonderful view of the beautiful mountains behind it. My room was clean (with the exception of the bathroom curtains that had some dirt and bugs) but quite dated - it’s an old school Hawaiian hotel that does seem like it would benefit from some updates. I didn’t spend very much time in my room so all was well. When I arrived, my lanai door didn’t open - it was jammed and the screen was off of its track. They fixed it immediately. The free coffee bar is off the hook. They had a lot of free stuff to borrow for beach adventures - beach towels, chairs, coolers, snorkels and fins, etc. The pool is decent - a smaller pool that is 3 feet deep all around. Good enough to cool down in and lounge around. Ample free parking. The roosters are also ample in these parts, but for me they are a benefit so I can get up and get out there. I would stay here again. If you’re on a budget and want to stay in that area, it’s a good choice. Oh - one more thing - when you’re driving there from the airport, you have to pass through an industrial area, a shipyard. It’s not very magical. BUT, if you’re coming from the other direction, the drive in is indeed magical. So don’t let that throw you.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Gross room: pubic hair and piles of old soap in the bathroom. Urine stains and mold or sediment in the toilet. Felt unsanitary to stay there so we didn't. It was a cleaned room: had a sticker that said CLEANED AND SANITIZED we had to break to enter. No refund: that is their policy I assume because half the people who book take one look at the hotel and run the other way. Expedia was useless.
