My dad stayed at the Stay Hotel for 4 nights when he was helping me move to Hawaii. I stayed here for one night. The overall experience was average. I don't think you could find anything for much cheaper in the heart of Waikiki for this price. It was near lots of high end shopping, places to eat, and only... More

If you only need a one or two night stay, then this hotel is tolerable. More than that and forget it. Our room was reeeeaaallly small. One old Ikea dresser that was falling apart and veneer was peeling off, no closet or anything--just an alcove with a curtain that had a wooden rod to hang clothes. Paint everywhere was peeling....

Needed a room for one night in Waikiki. Stay was clean and affordable, and it had AC! It is minutes from the beach and near all the restaurants and shopping you could ask for. The staff was friendly and helpful. Recommended.

This place has just what you need when you are going to Hawaii to run around in the sun and surf. A bed. It's a good budget hotel, the receptionist are friendly and the complementary breakfast was just what you needed to get out of the door. The room was tiny but had all that we needed. A bed which...

Look it's no super glamour and a lot of the furniture was cheap but the bed was comfy the room was clean, it had a balcony, staff were welcoming and always happy to help. Breakfast was simple with 2-3 things but for me it was perfect - Piece of fruit, a danish, muffin and coffee - My ideal. They give... More

While traversing the beaches of Oahu, Stay Waikiki became my home base this summer. Very modest accommodations considering the price, but at the same time you're literally half a block from Waikiki beach and a plethora of great restaurants. Breakfast being included in the morning is always a plus! The cherry on top of this sundae is definitely the staff.... More

Stayed here for 7 nights after having to change from a different hotel. Found it pleasant, clean and in a great location. Possibly over priced but we put it down to staying in the Waikiki area - was one of the only hotels in our budget. Staff are friendly and helpful with tourist info (buses etc). Wifi was fantastic and... More

I fell for this place because I wanted two rooms to accommodate my Husband and I, and our married Son and his Wife. The reviews sounded good. What we got was a nicely painted very old and stark room. The windows wouldn't open and the air conditioner wasn't big enough to cool the room. On the other hand, the bed... More
