Well what a place. What more can we say. Local fair stuff. Get a plate dinner off menus. Many years ago iused to get the avocado sandwich but not certain if they have that now. The cocktails were once worth it.

Close to the Waikiki beach and zoo. Parking lot at site (for 20 $/day, and can be full at night), working internet, but not too clean bathroom (we found some soap from previous guests). Anyway, the lowest price on the coast. A bit windy at the top floors.

Steps away from Kalakaua and Kuhio Beach, it is peaceful and quiet, away from the traffic noise. Ewa hotel is actually located right behind Aston Waikiki and we used it because Aston could not guarantee us late check-out. It is half-price from what Aston offers, and we got exactly what we paid for. Modest studio room with two twin beds... More

This hotel needs a 3 1/2 rating at most, but we're being kind. It is within walking distance of the east end of Waikiki Beach, which is the best thing about it. The next best thing is the price. We just needed somewhere to stay for 2 nights before we headed to the north shore of Oahu for the rest... More

This hotel is definitely well passed its prime. As soon as we got passed the lobby into the elevator it was all downhill, actually amazed the elevator even passes safety inspections it is so jerky and clunky. All carpets are stained and dirty, walls are chipped and peeling, depressing common areas. Bathroom in our room was gross, peeling paint, mildew,... More

This was a good basic hotel with spacious rooms. We had trouble with drunks the first night of our stay but otherwise there were no problems. The room was serviced everyday except for Thanksgiving and staff were pleasant and polite.

The great: hotel location is perfect, 30 yards off the a main street so two minutes by foot to beaches, Starbucks, zoo, restos and bars, but quiet at night.

Stayed 4 nights at Ewa Hotel recently. It has a good location in Waikiki and closed to the public bus stops. This is an old hotel which I didn't mind given that this is one of the better deals in Waikiki. However, I was bitten by bed bugs when I stayed here. There were small cockroaches in the bathroom in... More

We had a couple of days to explore Honolulu before we boarded a cruiseship so wanted a central inexpensive hotel. My husband and I travelled with our 3 teenagers and his mother.

This is a perfect place if you are looking for just a super comfy bed in which to sleep. What it lacks in amenities it makes up for in convenience and affordability. Located half a block from Waikiki beach, the hotel is within walking distance of multiple attractions which suits our lifestyle perfectly. We don't need a fancy resort with... More
