Pros: Location is 5 minute walk to beach; lands right in between busy and safe Waikiki beach and quiet, open beach. Rooms are big enough. Nice rooftop deck with partial ocean view. Across from the zoo and park. Cons: they never cleaned my room the five days I was there despite putting up the little sign saying "please clean". Small... More

I liken finding accommodation in Honolulu to finding it in New York. There are so many hotels how do you choose? I knew of the Aqua brand (this is Aqua Lite) and wanted to spend more money doing things than wasting it on a hotel room I would only sleep in. So this one fit the bill perfectly. I stayed... More

The hotel is well situated at the end of Waikiki beach, it is close to some good restaurants and is clean and good value. However the decor and the furniture need updating, which is happening presently. A deal is offered upon arrival to receive free WiFi, newspaper, DVD's, no surcharge on local calls, this will add $10 a day and... More

Slightly older hotel about 2 minutes walk to prime downtown Waikiki beach. Big rooms are bright, airy and clean and have kitchenette to help keep down meal cost-s and thus represent good value. Looks like management is currently replacing old furniture with new and bed was nice and firm. Hotel location relatively quiet, nice lobby and front garden while waiting... More

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

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

It was a business trip (took part in a conference together with my spouse) so we were looking for a hotel to spend there only night hours.

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
