Clean tidy hotel - good value for money, Staff were very helpful. 3 - 5 minute walk to main beach. Quiet location. We had a good size room with double and one single bed. Breakfast was included in the room price. Breakfast was very average, Would have been nice if boiled eggs were not quite so boiled. Also the fruit... More

Was booked by our travel agent as a cheap holiday. Ended up cheap and nasty. Room the size of a large closet, no balcony, wardrobe door could not shut, no space to store our bags, louvre windows did not shut out wind not noise, room not clean, staff didn't care. Spent as MUCH to our of the room as possible.... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable, maybe a little on the small side, the pool is nice but not very big, the location is good (two blocks from everything) and the price is very good compared to everything around it.

I spent just one night on this hotel. Located near to the canal and to the kuhio avenue, the hotel has a swimming pool, and lobby with a big area to rest. My room was small but everything was on the right place. It is a good hotel to spend just a few days with friend. I don't recommend it... More

My husband won a week trip to Hawaii, they put us up at this hotel. It's not the greatest hotel but it's not the worst either, especially for the location. The only reason I gave it four stars was not necessarily for the hotel itself, which could use a bit of updating. However they were renovating one of the elevators... More

I stayed here with a group for a community service trip. The location is great for the price, it's walking distance to Waikiki beach. But the two elevators were extremely slow and one was then shut down for maintenance. It was inconvenient and we had to use the stairs more often than not because waiting for the one working elevator... More

Still one of the best bargains in Waikiki. Clean and comfortable rooms. Continental breakfast has a pretty good variety that makes a great start to the day. The comp shuttle service to Alamoana shopping center is a super addition to the services offered by this hotel. Looking forward to my next stay at Aloha Surf.

Nice place to stay if you're on a budget. I found the staff to be friendly and accommodating and the room was well maintained. Though the complimentary breakfast left a lot to be desired, it's not a deal killer. There are conveniently located mini-markets galore and the prices are reasonable. My room had a wet bar, mini-frig, microwave, complimentary plates... More

Excellent hotel. Just a few minutes walk from Royal Hawaiian Centre. Great location. Our concierge, Lance was really cool. The breakfast was a little limiting as was the gym (3 pieces of equipment). There is a supermarket next to the hotel for quick food and supplies and is open until 0100 everyday.
