Poor 2.0
Don't stay if you are looking for a quiet place
The rooms next to the freeway have absolutely no sound proofing. The noise made sleep near impossible with the sound of traffic, horns and sirens breaking into any sleep you may get! Balcony door had been prised open and would not seal and the glass was thin so didn't dampen the street noise

Staff was wonderful but it is a noisy location.
PASQUALINA, au3 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Good size, clean room, comfortable bed. Perfect!
Extremely friendly hotel. Had a great time meeting the staff and the fellow guests at the Paniolo bar in the evening. The hotel is PERFECT. Why waste your money on expensive hotels when you tend spend most of the day out of the hotel enjoying the surrounding area. The Equus provides a good size, clean room and comfortable bed. What else to you need?
Steve, au2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Older style character accomodation.
Hawaiian charm not the sameness of the large international group hotel chains. Yes, it is older and the upcoming upgrades to keep out the ever present road noise will be welcome. The staff could not have been more friendly and Rene was a stand out charming character.
Allan, au5 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Nice spot reasonable prices
Good spot in between Waikiki and also Moana mall. Parking is expensive and not easy. There is a fair bit off traffic noise. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating.
Scott, au3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Overall a very good stay.
We choose this hotel because it was located closer to the ship terminal and airport than others located further down the Waikiki Beach area. They were also offering a very good rate when we booked. It is a smaller hotel with only 8 floors when compared to those hotels closer to the beach. We appreciated the welcome drink from the outside bar on a hot day and the staff were friendly and helpful. Overall the rooms are not too cramped and were clean, the beds are very comfortable. The only issue we had was with the street noise as we are unused to a quieter setting at home. We were thankful we had earplugs with us. The WiFi was good and easy to access.

Great value and location
Great value stay! Within walking distance of the Ala Moana shopping mall. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The bathroom was adequate, if a little tired. For the value and location - I would return again!

Convenient location, pleasant room, fair room rate
The hotel has a convenient location: not too far from the airport ($25-$30 Uber ride or $2.75 public bus) and walking distance to the mall and Waikiki beach shopping area. The building is old but reasonable well renovated, except for the razor thin windows, which don't block any road noise. The room is nice, the bed is good and the free in-room coffee is appreciated. does not clearly state that a ridiculous $15 resort fee applies. which is an insane American invention to screw the customer. As there is no choice to make use of the 'resort' facilities these costs should obviously be included in the room rate. Besides this issue the rooms are fairly priced.

A unique little hotel - well worth a stay
A great little character hotel & really well located. Only issue was the carpet was a bit damp & were unsure if it had been cleaned previously & not fully dried in the humid weather. The staff readily offered to help but as we only had a two night stay, we were not overly worried or inconvenienced. The staff were fantastic & we would stay there again for sure. Really easy access to the beachfront & other amenities - marina & shopping etc. If you want to try out something with personal service & not be one a couple of 100 guests, you should book in.
