Our other hotel that we had booked fell through and I was intent on finding a new one. The Ewa hotel was within our budget... More

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for our spring break trip in Honolulu. The room we were originally checked in was decent but old. There were bugs in the room and our toilet ended up cracking.

This is a small hotel at the far end of the touristic strip in Waikiki, one block from the zoo. The hotel itself is modest and non pretentious, but if you are on a budget and want to be conveniently located for the attractions, shopping and the beach, this is it. You can take the bus from the airport and... More

We have been to Waikiki many times, stayed at many hotels but if you want service with a smile from genuinely nice people then you must stay here.
