Not returning

1.4 on February 13, 2018

I understood, AFTER my room was confirmed, that there would be construction due to remodeling. That's bad enough, but you don't charge full price for a $50 room. They gave us an un-remodeled room that was disgusting. It should never have been rented out until it was remodeled. MOLD on the ceilings, everything run down. Couldn't open dresser drawers because the handles were missing. It was the worse I've been in, in years. I see a beautiful picture under contact information, I hope for your sake this is what it looks like now. I am quite sick from that deplorable room.

Innkeeper Response
I'm sorry you did not have a pleasant stay. All our unrenovated rooms are clearly described. If you don't live in Hawaii, you wouldn't know the cost of living in paradise is high. I do not know of any $50 rooms. We have many returning guests that enjoy even these unrenovated rooms. We are also constantly complimented on our complimentary breakfast. Please return again and book a fully renovated room instead. It's because we know these rooms are old and in need of LOTS of tender loving care that we have made progress with most of our renovation, but have come to a slight halt as we wait for more county permits to continue with bringing forth an entire property into the 21st century. Thankyou for taking time to share about your stay. I'm sorry you didn't reach out to me directly, but am here should you with to discuss this further. Aloha and malama pono!
