A very affordable accommodation a couple of blocks from the beaches of Waikiki. An older property that is kept up well. We spent a week and were not disappointed. You are not in the lap of luxury, but didn't spend much time in the room while in Hawaii. Kitchenette is very small, but functional. The location is within walking distance... More

We recently spent some time in Honolulu for our anniversary, and we stayed four nights here. It's location is near Waikiki - definitely within walking distance - but is not right on the beach, and there is no ocean view available. The neighborhood is mostly fine, though we did have an encounter with a rambling, intoxicated dude -- but that's... More

We stayed here for a week. All the staff was very friendly especially Christieann. They were able to answer all of our questions with ease. The room was clean. Kitchenette was small but we didn't end up using it while there. The negative I would have to say is that our air conditioning unit was very noisy, but it cooled... More

Had booked the Ewa Hotel near Diamond Head as we had planned to climb at sunrise the following morning. We had already arranged parking for the rental car nearby. Plumbing issues meant we were relocated to sister hotel White Sands. Only downside was we were made to pay for parking even though we had already pre-booked elsewhere (now miles away)... More

So I booked a trip for my mother and sister to stay at the white sands while I was at another hotel for the week of our wedding. Placed a 50 dollar deposit for the room and was supposedly going to have that refunded 2 business days after the stay was completed. It is now three months later and despite... More

This was the 3rd time we stayed here in the last 12 months and still believe it is one of the best values in Waikiki. Christieann in our opinion is the most cheerful person in the industry and the most helpful. We are already planning our next stay which we hope to do for a month next time, and certainly... More

Stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise to the other islands. It is a very convenient location near the international bazaar, Waikiki beach, the zoo, parks, Diamond Head, and a muni golf course. It is really a motel, and, keep this in mind--NO ELEVATORS--not a problem for me, but my elderly mother & aunt could not stay on the... More
