My friend and I stayed here for about a week. Despite hearing the construction noise next door the hotel has a great location, rooms are clean and tidy. Our housekeeper was absolutely gorgeous on level 4. The only other downfall is sometimes you just feel like hanging around a pool and not having to venture out anywhere, but I believe... More

I stayed here twice on a recent trip. The hotel is in a great location in Waikiki and has very reasonable rates. The staff are very friendly. The views from the hotel are good especially if you can see the sea. The room was neat, tidy and clean. No problems with any of the amenities. The wi-fi was good in... More

When we made our reservation we based our decision by the available photos of the rooms, reviews we read and so we went ahead prepaid our stay. At the time we were NOT told the hotel was under renovation and there was a huge construction site with cranes, bull dozers, and trucks right next door. On our arrival we found... More

As the title suggests, this is the second time I've stayed at the Wave. The first was with my (now) wife and this time was with a mate. I emailed them a week before and requested an early check-in and to confirm that a package I was expecting had been delivered. I didn't receive a response so was a little... More

I stayed at this hotel for four nights. When we checked in we were created by Isaac. He was so welcoming and and accomidating. He answered all of our questions. Our room was a spacious one bedroom with three beds and two balconies on the top floor. I couldn't have asked for a better room. Our housekeeper was Marilyn and... More

My family and I stayed here for a week at the end of March. We booked a deluxe partial ocean room and it was great. A special mention must go to Dee at the front desk. She was extremely helpful and professional making our experience a great one! The hotel is literally a five minute walk to Waikiki beach and... More

Pros: The best thing about this hotel is the location. Everything you need is within 2 blocks: restaurants, grocery store, designer stores, DFS Galleri dutyfree stores, Ross Dress or Less discount store, and souvenir shops. The rooms were a good size with 2 Queen beds and a wide sidetable/vanity. Clean and comfortable beds. Had a balcony so we can enjoy... More

We stayed here for a few weeks on military TLA. It was a nice walk to the beach, tons of shopping and a variety of restaurants. The staff at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. The woman, Felyn, who cleaned our room on the 4th floor did a great job and was so sweet! It was in a... More
