We did not like this hotel. Sure it is in a great location. We paid $59 per night for what was advertised as a 2 star hotel in central waikiki on hotwire. We got Castle Hokele and i was shocked to see it was rated as a 1 star on tripadvisor. They are cheap but have alot of added charges.... More

This place is absolutely disgusting. Our bathroom had dirty towels, mold and hair!!! The room smelled bad and the carpet felt wet. there were cockroaches too. Oh and the parking is ridiculously expensive. Do not stay here.

Just got back from a 7 day trip. The Pros: Perfect location, quick walk to the beach, and great for families. Cons, smelly musty rooms, but, tolorable. parking cost was too high, internet was too high and the free continental breakfast was deceiving. The restaurant is seperate from the hotel. But the free breakfast is donuts and cofee. for an... More

If you want the Hilton experience go to the Hilton. For a good budget vacation this is a very good place. My wife and I spent 6 weeks here in Jan. and Feb. and had a great time here. Granted this is a older hotel but it is clean and well maintained. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Despite all the negative/semi negative comments we stayed here during our 2 week trip to Oahu. 1st of all we had an entertainment book and really got an amazing room rate. When we first got there the room smelled a little stale and was a little stuffy but it was just fine after opening the doors to the 2 lanai's.... More

It is an old hotel. I did have a new bed and the furniture looked new. My room was clean. I thought the staff was nice and helpful. The value for your money is there, it is expensive to eat out everyday, so eating in the room saved a lot of money. The beach and all of the high end... More

Like the movie, 'Titanic', this hotel has too many unfair criticisms that I want to address. First off, I got this hotel on Priceline.com for an unbelievably good price. I was shocked to read all the reviews saying how awful this hotel is. Honestly, I called Priceline to change, but they wouldn't let me. Thank God they didn't. This hotel... More

I had found and booked the Hokele Suites through Castle Resorts website. The online picture of the room lay-out, and the virtual tour made it look very nice. Upon arrival, we found we had been severely deceived! The Hokele Suites is a VERY OLD property. The room we had was a 2 bedroom kitchenette, but was actually very cramped, and... More

This was a cute, old, quirky hotel with a nice, open pool and reception area. Our room was bigger than usual with a little kitchenette. Our beds were clean and comfy. Our room had a big veranda, Lanai, but not much of a view. This was a cheap hotel and very centrally located, and the staff went out of their... More

This place is a bit rundown, but for the price, it's worth it. I've stayed here on both trips I've taken to Hawaii--one stay with entire family in a 2 bedroom suite and one stay with my sister in a standard room. Both rooms were about the same as far as cleanliness and amenities. Parking is $20.00 per night, so... More
