We're local people that needed a staycation and chose this place. The staff were very friendly. I loved looking at the ceiling with the blue sky and clouds, what a nice surprise. The place was very quiet,the amenities, walking distant to stores, restaurants and beach. the room was clean with a kitchenette, dishes, pots, utensils,etc. We enjoyed staying here. I... More

I needed a hotel that had a kitchen, wifi and walkable to the beach without costing a million bucks. This place acomodated all of those. Some notes: If design is your thing, move along. It's like a converted condo that's stuck in the 80's. It has an ancient electric stove and cheesy painted celings. It has a great amount of... More

A great view, clean, comfortable, friendly and helpful guest services and staff. Easy walking distance to the beach, to shopping and to buses. Good variety of restaurants and convenience shops for sundry items. Overall a feeling of Hawaii being real and not an in your face tourist location. No frills just the basics but the beds were comfortable and everything... More

Very unsatisfied with our stay. Booked a room with two double beds and ended up getting one double bed and a couch! Very very outdated and old. Elevator didn't work very well either. Do not recommend.

The hotel charged us two nights too much, we saw it on the credit card statement once we were back at home. Customer service was extremely bad, as we had to call the hotel four times and we didn`t get any answer. In the end we complained the illegitimate amount charged by the hotel via our credit card company. After... More

I spent over a week at the Holiday Surf and would recommend it to those on a budget. It's very affordable (the studio priced at $70/night, but with fees and taxes it came out to $100/night). Pros of the place: Has a kitchen (with fridge, oven, cupboards) which is great if you want to cook and/or store food. The studio... More
