Hokele isn't that bad of a hotel despite all the negative comments I've been seeing. I stayed there 3 times in the matter of a year for birthday events. Needless to say, all of my friends and I find Hokele an acceptable hotel. There are a few cons though which is why I rate 3/5. I did not appreciate how... More

Good value for money but if your wanting something romantic or spotless then stay somewhere else. Our room was ok but was very noisy. We could hear every word from next door and outside! Pool was great!

The space in the two bedroom units is great, but the place is so run down and dirty! Permanent stain on the carpets throughout, and the bathroom border on disgusting. It is moderately priced, but when you stay there you will understand why.

If you don't require a view (though some rooms have limited views), want to save lots of $$$ and have easy and convenient access to Waikiki area locations, this is the place. Not a modern facility, but offers all the amenities you'll need for a comfortable stay. Walking distance to everything in Waikiki, even the beaches. Rooms are secure, clean... More

Not the best time to visit a hotel, and not cheap considering. Pool and location saved this hotel from a worse rating. Location is definitely good, 1 1/2 blocks from the beach and close to shopping, cafes and restaurants. Pool was a definite plus. WiFi was only available in the lobby/pool areas and very slow. Free newspapers daily, coffee/tea mornings... More

When planning a family vacation for their 50th wedding anniversary, my parents hired a travel agent to book our trip. The travel agent booked this hotel for one leg of our journey, and after reading the reviews on tripadvisor we were skeptical but knew we had to approach the situation with an open mind. For starters, all of the negative... More

Aloha, Please accept my humble apology for the billing and payment issue you experienced at the hotel. I am researching the situation to find out what exactly happened. It is an unusual situation because locking you out of your room because of no payment does not happen often especially since it is the policy of the hotel that funds are... More

Just spent the last 9 days here and was a bit nervous about the reviews before coming but was pleasantly surprised. Sure the bathroom is small, your'e on holiday wat u need a big bathroom for. The place had only 1 elevator going so a bit of waiting around for that or run down eight flights of steps regularly. Michael... More

When my husband and I began to plan our trip to Honolulu, we already knew that we did not want a luxury suite at a high priced hotel because we did not plan on staying in our room except to sleep. Hokele Suites was the perfect location because we were able to walk around and explore Wakiki in every direction... More

After reading some of the previous reviews I was a little worried, but that was soon laid to rest. Yes this is a budget hotel, yes it's old, it's certainly not the Rutz but if you are after a fabulous location, lobby free wifi, friendly and accommodating staff that are all too happy to help and are on a tight...
