We usually stay at a certain hotel on the strip but, it was not available so for the lower price of this one it was just as nice because the other one needs a facelift because it is getting old. This one has new furniture so that was nice. Our room was spacious enough for three people there were two... More

Checked in last minute when reservation at a different hotel fell through. Upon attempting to check in at other hotel I was told rudely that there was no room matching the reservation I originally made. The only room available was 600$ more. So when I called Ewa to get a last minute room for 4 people and 8 days they... More

I admit it, I took a gamble on this hotel and unfortunately it did not pay off. We were greeted by a miserable guy and then we had to haul our luggage up the stairs because the hotel were moving furniture - so they were using the lift. We got put in the smallest room I think I have ever... More

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
