Hotel is nice a bit dated but our room had fully working kitchen nice big bedroom, small bed for 2 adults and a bit too soft but alright, 2 spare beds in the front room cable TV and a balcony looking out over the canal. Location is great very close to everything however a pool would 100% make me stay... More

We were meant to be camping but hot weather caused us to book a hotel at last minute for one night and we used booking.com. this hotel had a good price and fair reviews on booking.com. The hotel is nice and clean with big rooms and staff were initially great - due to international dateline issues we had wrongly booked... More

You get what you pay for but the Holiday Surf is a great way to budget yourself in Hawaii. Friendly staff, clean and quiet rooms, what more can you ask for?? It's also only a 10-15 minute walk from prime Waikiki restaurants/shopping/the beach. It's hard to ask for a better alternative at the price range.

Great friendly staff. Location is OK. Under cover parking in the basement. Beds very uncomfortable. Due to being old, I think. It is outdated, but has a full kitchen. I don't travel and take trips to watch TV, but we had a TV in the bedroom and living room. Full cable. It was pleasant. Again, staff was very nice, and... More

We found this hotel on booking.com, and it was one of the better seeming deals in the time frame we were looking. We enjoyed the kitchenette, as food is so expensive in Waikiki, and so being able to save money by making breakfasts and lunches in the room was a plus. It is a very short walk to the beach,... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week near the end of May. Reserved through Booking.com. It looked like it was cheapest available ($77/night) .. BUT ... WiFi is $13.50/day, and has to be paid for the full time of your stay; Parking (if you have a car) - $20/night. So your actual total for this hotel might actually be as... More

Staying in Waikiki can be expensive but Holiday Surf can help your budget. We stayed for a week at the Holiday Surf at the end of April in Room 301. It had a double bed in the bedroom a single bed in the front room and a trundle futon bed. I purchased the deal in October through Priceline under the... More

I would rather stay at Polynesian Plaza if you want a budget option. The location is actually not so good and the wifi didn't work during or stay. That is a bit complicated if you need to book tickets and so. Small tv with a lousy picture and the bathroom stank of urin. I would not stay at this place... More

I stayed the last week of January, 2014. As a three star hotel, it provided a good location to Waikiki, off the major road, about a 15 minute walk to the beach, with easy access to stores & restaurants. Nicely situated on the canal for a pretty view. An older building renovated with a blue ocean theme. My room and... More
