  • 2 of 5

We booked our vacation 9 months in advance to Joes room at Inn on Park Waikiki.On late evening arrival there is no meet and greet and simply collect keys from small locker on second parking level.The room was initially difficult to get into as lower lock insecure which has both of us fumbling around for 20 mins or so.On entry to this room the door had paint peeling and was dirty.The room generally had issues of general hygiene and cleanliness .We tried to phone Joe immediately on arrival but no phone in room or premises so had to go to another hotel to make call,several attempts only to resort to emailing him and receding reply next day which indeed seems very Impersonal.Joe although requested did not come to the condo room to discuss issues which we had booked for approx 6 weeks from 29th Dec to 5th Feb .The picture frames had layers of dust around them ,carpets were badly stained so was the curtains .The conduit with electric cable next to wall of bed was insecure and inches from the wall needed securing .The cutlery was missing ,broken or rusty,and the minimal crockery all chipped .Bathroom was clean but had had repairs we noticed to upper ceiling and needs reprinting along with many of the walls to entrance door and around the a Room .We found Joes approach very impersonal and simply after 1st night offered us as refund so vbro commission could not be refunded seemed poor we do not want to change room unless the owner had one.We did not want refund and this was unacceptable as booked well in advance ,we required room clean and acceptable for our stay .Travelled to Hawaii 17 times and first experience of this has everywhere else well exceeeded our expectations ..Joe seemed to imply we were after partial refund but as above this was not the case .To this end he offered $200 for us to clean carpets and his room which we did and although lovely view from room the windows were very dirty inside and out which we cleaned to .We replaced many items like culterly ,plates ,dishes ,cups etc with brand new ones purchased locally ,along with brand new bed linens .We also cleaned room thoroughly which we agreed with Joe and indeed took pictures of condition of room before and after .The table lamp had many dead insects in along with the spotlight lamp.The table lamp was so insecure did not feel safe using to which Joe replaced with although used one which was slightly better ,but did not take the old lamp away just left in our room .Hand towels purchased

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Location was awesome with a beautiful view of the city. Bed is big and comfortable, which is the main thing since we were out of the apartment except to sleep. Parking can be an issue, but Joe communicates with you on where to find good options. We enjoyed our stay.

Great Waikiki location

  • 3 of 5

The room is actually a small previous hotel room. It's neat and clean. Surprisingly, there was room for us to unpack and stash our suitcases out of the way. We would stay there again.
