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 The rooms are outdated by waikiki standards, but more than sufficient for my requirements.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

We stayed here twice in different rooms, at the beginning and end of a one week stay. Room is a bedroom with a microwave, fridge, coffee maker and table. At the back of the room is a closet with cutlery, plates and pots etc., but in the room there was no 2 burner stove top, no sink (except the bathroom... More

We chose this place to stay for 5 nights as it was the cheapest we could find for a hotel in Waikiki...and there are many reasons this is the cheapest. It is a dilapidated hotel, with a musty smell, ancient elevator and worn-out carpet. The blinds in the room were broken and we were woken by the sunrise each morning... More

We stayed here for the last 4+ months as we moved here from The Mainland by choice and we were in search of buying a nice home. The ONLY reason we stayed here is because they accept pets and we have our small doggie with us. We are SOOOO greatful for that. SO, let me be honest and tell it... More

This place needs to be shut down. I got in at 1 am after driving back and forth across Waikiki multiple times to even find the place. I was told that parking was "sold out" and could either find street parking or park in the bank lot down the street. Elevator was nasty and ancient. Carpet in hallway is literally... More

The staff was wonderful and the location/price are worth it. And the washers are a huge help if you are staying for more than 7 days and don't want to carry a huge bag on the plane -- the fourth floor washer is 50 cents cheaper, FYI. This hotel is a great value if you plan on making the most... More

There is no parking but lucky for me I rented a Fiat 500 and found free parking on Ala Wai Blvd. It is not possible for any taxi to drop you off legally since there is no loading zone. The have to drop you off across from the ABC store.The blinds kept falling down. Other Aqua hotels are nicer vbut... More

This complaint email is to let you know that the accommodation provided to my husband on July 31st was extremely poor. The room was dirty and unequipped and the premises were very run down. It should be a backpackers hostel not a hotel. My husband and I travel a lot. To Asia, USA, Canada, Europe and Australia. Hence we do... More

This place was terrible and that would be an understatement. We only booked this last minute for one night as we started our holiday a day early and had already booked somewhere nice for our 8 night stay in Waikiki. The room smelt like an ashtray,there was a massive cigaret burn in the Bed cover and some kind of brown... More
