Good location, big rooms but very small bathrooms. Construction site next door meant very noisy and dusty and pool was closed and I understand these works will continue for some time. Difficult to access with no ramp at front but rather stairs although there is access from basement .

We had a one-day layover after being on the Pride of America cruise. AAA booked this hotel for us as a "perk" in order for us to spend a day at Pearl Harbor, so we stayed here purely by chance. It is an older hotel, but our room was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only... More

Stayed here one night in Waikiki. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and had a nice balcony with table and chairs. TV was good, shower had good pressure. Pool on 6th floor was nice with a huge pool deck and hottub. Convenient Waikiki location. I'd stay again.

If you want a vacation in Waikiki and plush living while staying there then this is not the place for you. If you want to experience the Hang Loose Hawaii feel then this is good for you.

Stayed 2 nights with family. Was on the 14th floor and there was only a little street noise at night. The room was very clean. Bathroom was clean but very small with low ceilings. Request top floors oceanside and there a great views.

My daughter and I stayed at the wave recently for five nights and were very impressed. Very clean and spacious rooms. We arrived on early flight from Australia and checked in and were able to get room immediately. This hotel is very close to the beach, great shopping and restaurants. Definitely would stay there again.
