    The hotel was nice, clean and centrally located. There is construction next door but their working hours certainly never effected us. There is street noise at night but the hotel supplies ear plugs. What set this hotel apart was the exceptional staff. The front desk staff were kept busy but were very efficient, friendly and welcoming. I would say that... More

    Was a nice clean hotel. Close to everything including urgent care (which we had to find out)! Nice people had everything we need. Unfortunately there was construction next door but they also didn't work late or early hours. Leticia took good care of us. I'd stay there again.

    The hotel is central and it is decent, nothing fancy and not quite yet falling apart. The staff at the front desk was helpful. Thankfully we only had to stay one night on our way to the North Shore because this is not a hotel I would be happy about spending more time in. There is a bar adjacent to... More

    To beat getting stuck in NYC during a storm I left for Hawaii a day early and needed a place to crash. I booked Aqua Wave thru Hot Wire and thought it to be a reasonable choice. Clean room - friendly desk staff and a block off the beach on busy Kuhio St. There is plenty of shopping nearby. No... More

    I didn't care much for this hotel but the staff were very friendly. It's also in a great location, walking distance from to everything. The rooms are in need of upgrades in particular the carpet and sofas. The bathroom and room could be cleaner. The size of the room was good though.
