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.

Aloha! Aqua Aloha Surf provided nice accomodations with clean and modern rooms with nice appointments like organic shampoo and soap, sheets and towels washed in scent-free detergent for chemically sensitive people like me. Guest services employee Shane was especially helpful in every way. Among other nice things, he located a restaurant for me that serves healthy, vegetarian, gluten free food,... More

Stayed her for the 1st time and their location was perfect since they are walking distance to the everything in Waikiki. Their staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and included a mini fridge and the shower was a decent size. We would definitely stay here again due to their location and price.

This hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to Waikiki beach and backs to the canal. Quite convenient. The people are also very friendly and accommodating. I had a chance to meet with Craig Matsuura, the facilities manager, as well as the general manager, . Very nice gentlemen providing very friendly service.

Took my Wife for a week for our 20th, Hotel staff were very accommodating and even found us a shuttle when we asked for a cab to our helicopter ride. Breakfast is just enough to start a day in Paradise. Just about everything is within 2 blocks of this Awesome and Quiet hotel.

Small but all you need, clean, quiet, buffet breakfast and convenient for downtown Waikiki. No car needed, beack a short walk away. Not terrifically expensive which is why we chose it. Fridge, microwave and coffee machines in the room. Small pool which was secluded and quite adequate.

what can I say, a little disappointed. tidy, fairly clean (but could be better), worn and outdated despite refurbished but still cabinets are falling apart. In great need of TLC. staff are less than enthusiastic, too relaxed. customer service is poor... I enquired about shuttles, as they provided a complimentary one to the big shopping centre. I wanted to use... More

Low budget type room. Clean and tidy. Coffee machine made water smell. Forget about their Continental Breakfast. It consists of Corn flakes with watered down milk, Packet mix Pan Cakes with watered down syrup, Maximum of 2 eggs and processed ham. No butter or jam for your toast. Orange cordial in place of Orange Juice.
