The free earplugs on the nightstands give away the downside of this retro collection of Polynesian-style A-frames and a single-story wing: Some rooms suffer from traffic noise. Also, as with most lodgings on the South Side, the beach isn’t good for swimming. The upsides: Sunset and sunrise views from the pool or hammocks are outstanding, the staff is friendly, and the remodeled rooms are cool, thanks to big ceiling fans and a few even have air-conditioning units. All have microwaves, minifridges, and coffeemakers, but since most are a petite 228 square feet, it’s better to spring for one of the deluxe second-floor rooms (432 sq. ft.) with kitchenettes. Families can take advantage of suites with a king-size bed downstairs and twin beds in a loft. Under new management since late 2017, the oceanfront restaurant Hiro’s Ohana Grill features live Hawaiian music nightly.
