Having stayed across the street at the Royal Hawaiian for several years, we always saw the police there a lot. I ended up staying there by accident one year for Mother's Day weekend. We were actually booked at the Oceanview but got a call from the owners while on the way down that there was an issue with that motel, so all reservations were moved to the Singapore. It was not a good experience, and you could tell that the owners had completely given up on the place. If I could afford to shell out more money for a different place I definitely would have! Still, it's sad to see more condos coming in, and the new building looks so plain and uninspired. It does say there was structural damage to the building, but it would have been nice to see a new motel put in its place with some kind of doo wop or island feel to it.
