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 Very very outdated and old.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

We stayed at the Holiday Surf for 9 days on vacation in one of their studio apartments. I didn't expect anything luxurious for the price we paid (around 86/night, not including the 28$ service fee they charge, still not sure exactly what that was about) but the place was fairly shabby and dated. The windows are slat glass windows, so... More

Recommend removing the window fixtures and replacing with solid glass to avovid the excessive noise from the AlaWai Blvd and side street. Walking distrance to Kuhio Avenue and shops within the hotel distance. Nice walk along the AlaWai canal. Room presence slightly old but acceptable. Parking is hit or miss; limited space available at the hotel site. Overall, I would... More
