Close to the airport but not a destination in itself

Stayed here for one night on a layover to Guam. Its proximity to the airport makes it convenient for layovers, but it's kind of in the middle of nowhere so not really a place I'd want to be for more than just a night or two.
Have stayed at the Airport Honolulu Hotel before, which it turns out is a "sister property". They're basically the same for all intents and purposes. They're only a couple blocks apart, they've got comparable amenities, and the rooms are about the same standards. It was a toss up between the two, and the only reason we went with this one was because we hadn't stayed here before.
Upon arrival, we found out that the on-site restaurant is only open for dinner on Fridays through Mondays. For Tuesdays to Thursdays, you're expected to either take the complimentary shuttle over to the sister property or head over to the strip mall around the corner (with nothing but pizza and other fast food options). Had we known that we'd be shuttling over to the Airport Honolulu anyway, we would've just booked there instead.
Perfectly adequate hotel otherwise
For shuttle pickup, call the switchboard after you've picked up your baggage and head for the sign that says "tour groups". It can be a bit of a zoo if you arrive at the same time as a large group, but the shuttle drives by slowly. less
