Lots of hair in blankets, very loud A/C units, one broken but MX came and fixed it in 5 mins. Sofa bed in unusable, beds were fair, shower fair, room was cleaned but felt dirty. The little kitchen was nice. Location was good, staff was friendly but very unwilling for a one hour late check out. Parking is a nightmare... More

This facility met our budgeting needs, therefore, I was nervous on the quality and I was not surprised. I was highly disappointed with the condition of our room and the furnishings. The room had an “old” odor, was in desperate need of a paint job and the furnishings were VERY outdated and rickety. The mattresses were HORRIBLY uncomfortable. They were... More

Kitchenettes are a must have! Pool was cleaned everyday. Great location just two blocks from the beach and one block from nightlife. What really made The Hokele awesome was the staff! Miles and Grace on security = EPIC! Michael, Miko, Gabe, Robbie and Chris on front desk = EPIC! The staff made my stay so awesome. I would definitely come... More

This was my second stay at the Hokele Suites. Very similar experience to the first stay. Reasonably priced, friendly, helpful staff, good location and an adequately equipped kitchen. In short, everything I needed. It's certainly not a luxurious place, but I generally spend little time in my room, anyway. I'm told most of the kitchenettes will be eliminated as part... More

Very loud. Expect to stay up late and be woken up around 6 am every morning. The gay bar next door is mostly bearable but music is loud until at least 2 am. All sorta of service trucks and shuttle buses arrive at 6 am , so do not expect a peacefully stay. I personally couldn't be more excited to... More

Aloha Toshog, On behalf of Hokele Suites I would like to apologize for the lack of rest you had here at Hokele Suites. I will personally go next door and speak with the owner of the bar and see if there is anything we can do to assist our guest in the future. By chance did you get a chance... More

I didn't have a high expectation for this hotel to begin with given that most of the reviews I read seemed to mention old and poor rooms. I still booked it because it's cheap and I am not a picky person and only need a place to sleep. However, this hotel managed to disappoint me despite the low expectation. I'll... More

We were desperate for a place to stay in Honolulu, just a bed for us and the kids for the night. But gee everywhere was so expensive until we spotted this place! We grabbed it at Booking.com for $97 plus taxes for all four of us, about $110 in total. Parking wasn't available at the time, but the parking on... More
