The room had recently been updated--carpet in bedroom and living area replaced with laminate planking--pretty good, except the maids weren't overly concerned with fully sweeping, which ISN'T good in a beach resort area. Only one A/C in the bedroom for the two rooms, so the living area/kitchen was always a bit warm. Although technically 4 people COULD stay there, as... More

Booked 4 nights at this horrid via priceline.com. The sheets had stains, carpet had loose staples, rusty chairs, engine noise from the AC and dirt all along the edges of the wall. And I am just citing a few of the problems. The biggest issue we had was the surprise service charge of $30 per night issued by the hotel... 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 It is outdated, but has a full kitchen.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
