Negative Reviews

No designated parking available

The parking situation at the Diamond Head Inn has been a common cause for complaint. While the hotel does not provide designated parking, a limited amount of public spaces are available next to the building. Yet former visitors have claimed that acquiring a spot outside the hotel is unlikely, and alternative parking will generally be necessary.

No air conditioning

The oversight of air conditioning in the suites has displeased a number of past guests. With that said, the hotel does provide fans in an effort to counteract this negative to an extent.

Outdated and worn down suites

The suites at the Diamond Head Inn, while reportedly clean and spacious, have been criticized by a variety of previous visitors for supposedly being worn down and dated. The furnishings and decor have been the general focus of this negative in the past.
