We had a great visit to the Stay Hotel. The rooms were simple, yet clean and comfortable. Only a small amount of night time noise, however the cool aircon made for a comfy night sleep so the noise meant little. The staff were very kind, crackin' the odd joke or two with us and helped us with every request. The... More

If you get a room on the 8th floor ask to change immediately as it is right below the air con units. While it is in a good location that comes at the price of late night and early morning noise. The other thing not made clear is there is a night club in the hotel lobby - not that... More

Stay Hotel is a great spot in Waikiki-- it doesn't break the bank, and it keeps you close to the beach. For my sister and I traveling around Hawaii, we wanted to spend our funds on experiences and activities, not the pricey lodging of other high rise hotels in Waikiki. Stay Hotel was perfect for our needs. Tanya Cullen behind... More

If you are in Waikiki for a night or 2 this hotel is in a great location. One block, 4 min walk from the beach. The hotel is very modest .... bed and bathroom, but you will not be spending much time in your room at Waikiki. The front line staff are super friendly and very helpful. They got us... More

If you love buses pulling up all night next to your window, then this place is for you! I have stayed in places 5 times as nice for half the price - rooms are dirty and small, the kareoke bar downstairs makes the lobby and street a hangout for people all hours of the morning so if you like sleeping,...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and enjoyed my time there. The room is not as good as one can expect but I believe it worth what I paid for.

Only stayed one night as this hotel is nothing like the photos. Room was dirty and didn't even want to shower there it was so gross. Even the lobby photos are inaccurate. For $200US a night I would expect more. Went down the road to the Pacific Beach hotel. Got a descent rate on Expedia, much nicer.

The pictures you see on the website are very deceiving. The rooms are dark with not much lighting options and very out dated. The floors did not have a rug, it made the room look empty with not so attractive tile. The bathroom was small with very old fixtures. No individual bath amenities with no storage space. There is no... More

We stayed 3 nights. The cost was affordable, and the breakfast was satisfactory. If you are wanting to stay near Waikiki Beach, this is a good place to be. The only frustration is the parking. Most likely, you will have to park a couple blocks away at a public parking garage connected to another hotel ($25 a day). If I... More

Aloha DarrenD, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience during your recent stay at our hotel.
