Last week, my family and I (3 adults, 1 minor) stayed here and absolutely loved it! This hotel had its own little beach entry and had one of the BEST restaurant located in the building! it's called Cinammon's( check it out)!

We stayed here for a week. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked most of the meals during the stay. We usually spend around 15 mins to find free street parking along Ala Wai Blvd in the evening. We stayed at the 3/F and there were construction at the 2/F for a few days which was very noisy and annoying.... More

Upon arriving the hotel, the façade does not really impress us. But once you get inside the hotel & room, it was not that bad at all. Our room was facing the street & up on the 13th floor so we didn't hear any street noise. It is very near Ala Moana mall & food. They had a path at... More

Although not in the heart of Waikiki, the Marina Resort is well enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main beach area to be reasonably quiet, although we did get some street noise, once we closed the heavy curtains, it was fine. To get to and from the beach is a shuttle bus ride at a cost of... More

We stayed at the Waikiki Marina for 3 nights in June 2015. Although an older building, the Ilikai has been reasonably well maintained and functions efficiently. Our apartment was furnished with a king sized bed and a fold-out sofa, and was suitable for our family of two adults and two young children. The small kitchen was well equipped and quite... More

Since the Hale Koa was fully booked for the month of June, I booked at the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai which is actually a condo for rent with all the amenities of a hotel included in the price.

Aloha GhenTravelbug, Thank you for your kind comments about our staff....your review will make their day! The Ilikai is indeed "historic". Another bit of trivia that might be interesting to share is...on the TV show Gilligan's Island from some years ago, the USS Minow set sail from the marina behind the resort. The series "Lost" was also filmed on location... More

I booked two rooms and had a very pleasant stay here. Very clean and in a great area. I am totally paranoid about finding roaches and bedbugs and there were none. Kitchen has everything you need. Our rooms faced the streets but I didn't mind the noise.

Though it gives the impression as a hotel while booking through Expedia, room is a part of Wyndham Vacation Ownership. From the main lobby, we were directed to the second floor vacation rental office which is difficult to locate - which functions only from 7am to 11pm. Our concierge for check out didn't turn up at 6.45 am as promised.... More

Ilikai Marina Resort is great digs right next to the Hilton without all the tourists. If you are all about low key owner rentals without the hassles, this is for you.
