On August 9, in late evening I arrived (took me about half an hour to find the hotel) to checkin and then out again to, (a) look for something to eat, and, (b) find a parking. When I returned to my room (304) I found out that the aircon has been dripping and the carpet was soaking wet. Since it... More

I apologize for your experience and can empathize with your frustration. I have shared your review with the entire staff and have since replaced the AC in your previous room.... More

We only stayed in Waikiki one-night before heading off to our rental condo and thought the EWA was perfect! Things I liked: Really close to the beach - like two short blocks, close to Diamond Head, close to the zoo, close to the Waikiki Shell, close to an ABC store (but what isn't), little kitchenette in the room, functioning lanai,...

Because this is a block off Kuhio street it is much quieter at night. It is absolutely clean and comfortable, with just about the best pillows I ever encountered outside of home! It's at the zoo end of Waikiki and the price is really excellent. There is a little fridge and a microwave. I had a disabled accessible room with... More

Great to have a budget alternative in pricey Waikiki. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The room was basic, but comfortable and met our needs. Wifi should be free. If Asia can do it, so can USA.

We recently spent 2 nights at Ewa Hotel and we will NEVER return. To begin with, the room smelt. Like years and years of smoking that no amount of deodorizer could disguise. The "king" bed was two singles pushed together that would separate throughout the night. The air-conditioner would randomly switch off which made for a hot, uncomfortable sleep. We... More

I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the value and service we received. We were staying in Waikiki for a function over the weekend and said, "we'll just stay in a cheap flea bag since we will only be there to sleep". Our experience couldn't have been further from that statement. When I arrived the gentleman at the front... More
