I booked my room over a month in advance and when I arrived, they had no rooms available. Nobody from the hotel ever decided to contact me before I arrived that they overbooked. The front desk person didn't know what to do and after over two hours of waiting they finally put me into another hotel. All of the rooms... More

What a score! I couldn't have been happier with my choice, having never been to the Wakiki area. Booked the room on Hotels.com for $109 a night. ( 2 queen beds+kitchenette) It was clean, they have staff 24° a day, washer and dryer on every floor, A/c, pool, lounge deck. BEST PART is the location. It's right next to the... More

We were travelling with friends. We wanted to show them a great holiday without blowing all our budgets. This place I recommend. It isn't the hilton! BUT...beds are comfortable, we had a balcony with street view of an evening we sat out there had a few drinks. It was roomy. The kitchen is old but fully equipped, the bathroom is... More

Hotel is generally average.. Abit outdated but considering the low prices you do get what you pay for. There's a kitchenette which is convenient but location is amazing heart of waikiki definitely walking distance from everything! Staff are lovely.

Worst hotel ever: CONS: No parking Public parking is $20 dollars away one block away. Do NOT park at the post office because even if you pay for a whole day you can still loose your spot if you leave your paking spot to go to the store or what not. No room wifi - that is an additional $12... More

Really hard to find and no one seemed to know where it was. There is just a little door with the name overtop. We kept driving past it until we finally spotted the door. I guess for the price in the Waikekee area, it was cheap. Little shabby. Beach is two minutes away. I would have to real think about... More

The hotel is hard to find; it is a doorway among the shops. The hallway is a little shabby but the office is near the pool. The room was large and clean. The glass doors opened on to a nice deck with an all world view of Kalakaua Ave. They provided an ironing board with iron in the big closet... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at that I paid more than $200 per night. The entrance was sketchie homeless people were hanging out. Than you got to the check in desk which was like a broom closet where they kept everything including their servers for the network. This was also next to the pool... More

Stayed for 7 nights as a solo traveler, and the plaza met all expectations. Staff was friendly, and helpful. The rooms are outdated by waikiki standards, but more than sufficient for my requirements. Spacious, and conveniently located right on the main strip. The beach is close, and the shopping/nightlife is all within a few minutes walk. I used the room... More
