We stayed here for 3nts on our arrival into Honolulu. The location of the hotel is central shops and beaches. Rooms are spacious and clean. We were lucky enough to have been upgraded to a junior suite. The sofa bed also came in very handy and must say it is one of the most comfortable sofa beds of any hotel... More

This hotel had great service and was in a top location for a reasonable price. The rooms were clean and a fair size. We had a balcony overlooking the pool and street. We could even see a little of the sea!. Jimmy Buffets restaurant downstairs was pretty cool and had good food. The pool was small but for once the... More

Hotel in good central location, 5 minutes walk to beach and right near lots of shops. We had a room with full ocean view and glad we paid extra as vacant block right next door, in which building has begun!! Rooms were clean and staff helpful

We stayed for 3 nights. Hotel is located very near (200m) to the beach. The breakfast is very american and you can't find anything healthy from a european point of view except of a plain coffee. All famous restaurants and bars are close by and all are familyfriendly. The quality of the room and hotel facilities is reflecting the rate... More

The hotel is located right in the busiest part of the Waikiki beach area, overlooking the classic pink Royal Hawaiian hotel. Hotel is surrounded by shops and restaurants (Jimmy Buffett's is on site) and the beach is within 5 min of walk. The room is a little outdated, with adequate space but basic facilities. I feel you mostly pay for... More

Aloha and a sincere Mahalo for the great review. With our location central to Waikiki, it is wonderful to learn that you could take advantage of the many shops, beaches and restaurants. As Waikiki looks towards the future with the International Marketplace, the Beachcomber is truly excited for some of the new updates that will take place later this year... More

As hotel experiences go, this is about as average as it gets. Staying in Waikiki is generally pretty expensive, and the Beachcomer is one of the more reasonable rates available. Nonetheless, you wind up paying a pretty penny for a room and ammenities that are largely indistinguishable from a HoJo in Kansas. Positive: the hotel is located right in the... More

My husband and I have just spent 12 nights at this Holiday Inn. We booked an ocean view room 8 months prior to our holiday..What a disappointment Room 1405 was! It could be best described as a room with ocean glimpses.The worst feature was that it was located beside the lift which creaked incessantly throughout the night and at times... More

We stayed here for a few nights and it was great. Good price, perfect location! However, it was the travel agents in the lobby that were incredible! One in particular.

Great location, friendly staff and a very nice oceanview from 25th floor. Construction site next to the hotel and supply trucks makes a lot of noise from 5 AM (July 2014) Pool is small but you are only 3 minutes away from Waikiki Beach. Free WiFi is fast.

Beds were comfortable, but check in was and absolute disgrace. We had to wait over 5 hours for our room, watching other travellers getting their rooms straight away. Querying check in staff resulted in getting brushed off and some staff were just plain rude. Bathroom very basic and in need of a renovation.
