Off busy Kaahumanu Avenue but backing up onto a small beach, this budget hotel is managed by Aqua Aston Hospitality, which specializes in sprucing up older properties and adding services to make them more appealing yet still affordable. Here, fourposter bed frames with pineapple finials and matching dark wood furniture, framed Hawaiiana prints, and flatscreen TVs with BluRay DVD players elevate otherwise basic rooms with wall-unit air-conditioners and motel-style bathrooms. A la carte breakfast and Sunday brunch and dinner buffets in the open-air, second-floor Rainbow Terrace restaurant also provide good value if you don’t have time to venture off-property, which includes a few tempting oceanview hammocks.
