We normally stay at the Hilton in Honolulu but we needed a place for the weekend before we went back there and we were so happy to find this place. It's Affordable, family-friendly, clean but rustic. Plus we were close to the North Shore and got to explore all the wonderful beaches there. Hukilau beach is across the street. It is a good Walking distance to shops and the Polynesian cultural Center. If you drink wine or beer purchase it before you come into Laie. The town is dry.
