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 It is outdated, but has a full kitchen.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

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Surf Hotel in a Studio room with 1 double bed. The room size was decent, but the room faced Ala Wai Blvd. so it was very noisy with cars, trucks, and motorcycles passing by at all hours. The windows were glass shutters and they did not block out all the noise. You... More

Our stay at the Holiday Surf Hotel in Honolulu (Waikiki) was memorable for its friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness and terrific location to everything we wanted to do in Hawaii. The hotel surpassed expectation being budget friendly and a family like atmosphere. We could roll out of bed and walk to great restaurants, shopping and beaches with ease. The staff... More

I've been to Waikiki before, as the lacrosse club I play for sends a team to the annual tournament held at Kapialani Park each October. Everyone typically stays at the Waikiki Banyan but when my g/f couldn't make it due to work commitments, I decided to search for a cheaper option that still had a kitchen. Location wasn't a major...
