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 Abit outdated but considering the low prices you do get what you pay for.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 The rooms are outdated by waikiki standards, but more than sufficient for my requirements.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

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
