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.
