We looked online at several hotels and read many reviews on different sites. We were a little concerned about some of the reviews on TripAdvisor but the kitchen and location really sold us. We were happily surprised (and relieved) once we arrived. We spent a week in late Sept, with two children, 4 and 9 in Honolulu and we had... More

I was on a business trip to Honolulu and booked my stay at Aqua Waikiki Marina through Expedia.com. Very disappointing - stayed 2.5 days, decided to check out due to the following: 1] Room interior is dirty, carpeting & furniture are old and unkept, smelly - poor housekeeping service 2] undesirable residents [looks like 'prof' men/women] hanging around the hotel's...

This hotel is a bargain. The rooms are big and most importantly, CLEAN! I booked this hotel by contacting them directly and they were extremely helpful. I received my email confirmation and everything went smoothly. We arrived at the hotel a bit earlier than check-in so they told us they would do their best to get our room ready and... More

The Shell Vacation Hospitality we received was wonderful; Angie was very accommodating and our room was very clean and adequate for my Mother, two sisters, and me. We chose the "green savings", but the room was straightened, beds were made, and fresh linens were provided daily. We were in the heart of Waikiki and could walk to almost everything we... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was very hesitant to book. I'm an experienced traveler to Hawai'i and know what to expect at hotels. I have to say that those with negative reviews of this hotel are nothing but whiney cry babies that expect Hyatt service for Motel 6 rates. I was impressed. I'm familiar with the Aqua product...

We stayed on the 35th Floor and had a great view of the ocean, the room was clean had a great shower and even a iron and microwave. Would recommend it to people who just need to get a good nights sleep and want a short walk to the beach and the main shopping centre, which also has the main... More

We stayed at Waikiki Marina Resort from 7nights from Sept 7 - 14. Location of this resort is excellent. 5 min walk from Waikiki beach - right next door to the Hilton. Rooms are modern and clean. Bus stop right in front of the resort and walking distance to the mall. I highly recommend this resort.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 week and loved it. Room is very clean and spacious. Large balcony and kitchen. The location is really good because its a walking distance to the mall and beach. The bus stop is in front of the hotel so it's really convenient. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The only downfall is... More

This hotel is really nice. Having a nice kitchen helps us save money. Theres constructions going on around the building so we were kinda worried when we book the reservation. It didn't even bother us since we are out all day. Huge room and balcony. Great staff especially the guy that works at the frontdesk every morning. He always smile... More

As another reviewer noted, this isn't the "Ritz" and you get what you pay for. If you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a decent value and a place to park your belongings while you are out and about, then this might do it for you. The comfort level of stay may be completely dependent... More
