151 Uluniu Ave, Waikiki

This is a bright pink, low-rise building, and not much seems to have changed since it was built back in the 1960s. Housekeeping is daily if you pay the daily rate, every three days for weekly stay, and once a week for monthly stays. Local calls are $0.50. It’s cheap, but it’s pretty run down—although they have made some effort, adding new carpets in the hallways and some “new” furnishings, but don’t expect much. Your room may or may not have a coffee maker. If you have to store any valuables, they can hold them for you at the front desk as there are no room safes. We have not seen much change in all our editions—go figgah?

On the upside, they do have nice staff, and the owner plays the ‘ukulele with some other locals at the Monday music jams. Studios (approx. 300 sq. ft. for up to three people) are $70–$90 (cheapest rooms are in the older building, which has no A/C or lanais), 1/1s (approx. 375 sq. ft. for up to four people) are $125. A couple minutes’ walk to the beach.

What Readers Have to Say

“I wanted to say a great big huge “Thank you” for printing your “Revealed” series of holiday guidebooks for the Hawaiian Islands. My husband and I recently visited Kauai, the Big Island and Maui and while on Kauai had Hell’s Own job trying to find anything. We landed at Lihue after dark… We had never been to Kauai before and didn’t really know our way around, and the guidebook we picked up at the Thrifty office was (as we here in Australia say) as useless as tits on a bull. The maps were pathetic and we got lost three times before we were pointed in the right direction. It wasn’t until we visited the Wal-Mart in Lihue on Tuesday evening and I discovered your books that we were able to finally enjoy ourselves and find the places that we had been reading about. We bought the books for the islands we were visiting and were totally thrilled at the information contained, the light-hearted way the books were written and the little “surprises” that we also were able to see by going “slightly off the beaten track” as you guys had done… When we come back we will get the other ones you have printed and right from the first day we know we will be guaranteed a great time. Once again, thanks for taking the time to put these books together.”
