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 The rooms are outdated by waikiki standards, but more than sufficient for my requirements.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

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

The have to drop you off across from the ABC store.The blinds kept falling down. Other Aqua hotels are nicer vbut... More
