My friend and I stayed here for the first part of our trip in June. The service was fantastic. The staff are always happy to help and have a positive attitude. The beds are bloody amazing. So comfy. The room we had was a little bit small but it did us fine the time we stayed there. The bathroom was... More

I just stayed here for 7 nights. Overall this place is very clean. But very small. Did not see a single bug in 7 nights. Regardless of your reason for visiting the Honolulu this hotel is a great budget choice (would be a solid 2 star on the mainland). The hotel is close to restaurants and more shopping then a... More

The downstairs lobby is very simple and plain but I found the room itself was well presented, clean and quite a pleasant stay with good air conditioning, and even had mountain views from the balcony (I was staying in one of the superior rooms on the second from top floor, if I recall properly level 12). The bathroom seemed a... More

Hotel was actually nicer than we expected. It has an open lobby which was very pleasant. The pool is somewhat small with few lounge chairs. Short 5-10 minute walk to beach. Shopping and restraints very close by. The rooms were very nice. We got the larger standard room and it was quite spacious.

This is a great hotel for the amount we spent, although the new room was quite small and so was the bathroom, we had free WiFi in the lobby and a free breakfast.

What they did well: Check-in was easy and quick, and we even received a free box of candy--an unexpected treat. The rate was very affordable ($99/nt booked through Hotwire) compared to other hotels in the Waikiki area, and this included a buffet breakfast (see more on breakfast below). And the location was good--walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants.... More

We've enjoyed our stay here at the Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki so much that we don't want to leave! :) Two night stay for $177.00 per night. You're literally a crosswalk away from the beach and the zoo!!

When we booked in we were exhausted after a long journey from London. The room we were given was on the second floor. It was clean but cramped and being near the street noisy.
