Don’t be fool by the pictures on the hotel’s website. The hotel building is very old, it resembles of a motel or an old apartment complex with the doors and non-seal window opened to the outside door therefore you can hear all kind of noise from the street. I don’t mind if it’s an old building but the noises were... More

Aloha, Thank you for your review and I"m sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We will be installing new windows very soon in the whole building and we do understand that the city noise can effect some people more than others.

We spent 2 nights at Stay in Waikiki, and while the room was perhaps a little banged up, it was clean and had nice natural light coming in. The actual lighting inside the room wasn't the greatest, rather dim and no bedside lamps. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful... we wanted to check in quite early and were... More

Stayed here three nights. Staff was very friendly and helpful (especially the girl at the desk in the evening during our stay- wish I got her name- she went out of her way for us). Room was basic but clean. Price was reasonable considering the location and the daily continental breakfast and free wifi. Has a bar/restaurant with karaoke which... More

The rooms are basic, but are clean and close to the beach and shops. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Good for a quick stay in the heart of the city. We felt safe walking around at night near the hotel.The parking was full at the hotel so we parked a few blocks away in a lot.

Really nice, clean and comfortable hotel (IKEA decorated), in a perfect location for Waikiki beach and shopping and buses to other places. The balcony was nice too. Staff really friendly and helpful. Only negative was slow wifi, sometimes not working at all.

I stayed there 10-12 Jan 2015 and found it very pleasant, hospitable, homey. I don't like cold, international chain hotels so Stay Motel worked well. They have computers, a bar, and are only a few steps from restaurants. The motel is a little bohemian, a youth hostel feel except you get your own room and shower. My only complaint is... More
