We booked this hotel because of the price and location - we're not the type to stay in the hotel throughout our vacation so it met it's purpose. Pro's - very conveniently located, beach mat, chairs and towels provided, personable service, light breakfast included with $25 resort fee. My husband and I got a gift for being our anniversary, that... More

Stayed 5 days/4 nights at this hotel. Was exactly what we expected based on the photos and reviews. Location was excellent. Block from the beach, which was a great way to wind down after a day of fun on the island. Close to shopping and dining. All walking distance, and amazing eats. Didn't really try the continental breakfast or the... More

This hotel had excellent value, great location one block from the beach, and right off the city bus line. We arrived at night and were a little surprised to find this hotel tucked in among hostel-row. By the morning however, we could tell this was a great find. The front desk staff were friendly, courteous and prompt. The hotel had... More

We just returned from 3 nights at the Hotel Renew. Staff was great to deal with, very friendly. Room was nice, had a small view of the beach. Very convenient, 1 block to the beach. My only complaint was with the coffee in your room. Their website lists the Keurig coffeemaker under the items you get with the mandatory resort... More

Just a quick business trip last week, I needed an early check in as I flew out in the morning and had meetings in the early afternoon. The staff was quick to work towards getting me into a room so that I could clean up after a long flight. The room was small but very comfortable and clean. Good amenities.... More

The staff was great. Probably the best part of this hotel. But the 4.5 out of 5 on Tripadvisor, and the pictures of the nice, modernized style of room, are completely out of the question and misleading. To give you a short description: this hotel cost us a grand for 4 nights and it was an updated dorm room at... More

We spent about 4 days in Honolulu in Jan 2015. I searched the internet extensively as we like to make our own reservations. This place was a great deal-from the cost, to the quality, location and a wonderful staff. We could walk across the street to the beach, walk to stores, many of the tour buses and vans pulled right... More

I cannot say enough good things about Hotel Renew and particularly, their staff. Every member of their team that we interacted with (front desk, bartender, maids, bellhops) were all friendly, outgoing, and sincerely interested in our stay and comfort. Renew is a smaller, boutique-style hotel with a modern decor (albeit a bit dated). It is located on the end of... More
