The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful. The rooms have nice space and I used the kitchen daily. It's an older hotel going threw renovations so the room I stayed in was older but was reflected in price and was a good deal. Would stay there again!

...if you must save money. Although I'm not picky, it was really below standards, especially the room, who smelled really bad and didn't look very clean. The whole property is outdated and not well kept.Try to spend a bit more money to get something better. The personnel was friendly.

We recently stayed for over a month at Hokele Suites. We have stayed in previous years as well. We love that the hotel is small and close to everything. The new staff are all friendly and very helpful. We look forward to the new updated rooms when we return next year.

For the money, this is a pretty good hotel. Location is a ten minute walk to Waikiki. The rooms truly are suites, and they have a stove, a big fridge, microwave, two televisions, two beds and a sofa bed. The beds are not too comfortable, but tolerable. Clean, decent housekeeping. The lanai looked directly into a parking garage with banana... More

The hotel's staff is very friendly & helpful. Chris Tolbert who works in the front desk is a very nice, kind, and helpful guy, I appreciate his work & his cooperation. Also, the location is very good, it is close to Waikiki beach & the fireworks. Grocery store is just across the street.

When I arrived at the hotel I was not very impressed as it looked old and outdated. My room was a reasonable size, the kitchen and shower room needed updating but I only intended using it for sleeping so it was ideal for me. The bed was very comfortable an I used the fridge and microwave for snacks at times.... More

New ownership, horrible customer service, did not honor my reservation! Too bad I cannot give it 0 stars. I did not rate the rooms, but according to other reviews they don't seem any good either.
