3/5

The cost was ok, and the room was nicely sized, but it did not match the impressions given by the images on Expedia or the hotel site. This was not a "champagne living on a pig budget" or a "tropical paradise tucked away in Waikiki" as quoted on the hotel website. We had a "lovely" view of a darkish rooftop and the windows of the room across from us. The overall feel of the place was... Rundown I guess would be the word. It is in sore need of a renovation. The hall to reach out room smelled musty. The front desk staff varied, with our first encounter being rather indifferent, but the next morning very cheerful and friendly. Service varied too - we had a problem with the safe the night we arrived and were told someone would come to check on it. No one showed up. The next evening when we brought this up again, it was taken care of promptly. Bottom line - there are other options in Waikiki. Take them.

Although the property is under renovations, this hotel is amazing for the money in Hawaii. Some of the friendliest staff (shoutout to David who really addressed all of my concerns and told us where to get food and drinks). The property is also really only a 5 minute walk to all of the shopping on the strip and through the malls a 10 minute walk to the beach. No Uber needed here! The photos of the property need to be updated too because the front desk and pool look amazing now! Had an amazing time, thank you white sands!
