We stayed one night in transit back to Australia from Maui and chose this hotel for the price and location. The hotel is near shops, restaurants and easily within walking distance to the beach. I was traveling with a friend and our room did not have twin beds so the check-in clerk offered us a reasonably priced upgrade to a... More

As our most recent trip to HNL was spontaneous, I used TripAdvisor and yelp almost religiously before booking our hotel. Calling the reservations phone number helped and they offered us a last minute over the phone deal that was cheaper than the prices online. The Aqua Waikiki Wave is a good hotel in a great location that makes everything walking... More

I absolutely love this hotel! When I started going to Honolulu, this is where I've always stayed. It's about a 5 minute walk to Wikiki beach and almost inside of the International market place. The rooms are really cute and modern. The staff is wonderful and the manager, George is great! Great ocean view rooms too. Your very close to... More

As newlyweds on our honeymoon, we were absolutely thrilled with the service provided at this hotel. All the staff, including Brandon Hayashi, Ted, all the reception staff, housekeeping staff and everyone else, were courteous at all times. They went out of their way to be helpful and kind. A highlight of the hotel was the cleanliness and the Wednesday afternoon... More

Best part..great location for the budget price - convenient to beach, shopping, and places to eat plus 2 Starbucks within a block. Parking garage is covered and couldn't be closer to the front door. We felt safe and had little trouble in and out. Good linens! This is a 3 star hotel. We spent as little time as possible in... More

I liked the musician band in the main floor. They invited us cocktails and had fun for a while. The hotel is clean and nice. However, during the night, the neighborhood is full of prostitutes and strange people walking by. I think is preferably to stay something closer to the beach.

Aloha. While we are happy to hear you liked our clean hotel and were able to enjoy your time spent here we are disheartened to learn that you may have been a little disappointed in the quietness of the area. Our location in the heart of Waikiki with its shops, entertainment and nightlife does add to the excitement as well... More

Room and bathroom had some updates like great linen and toiletries and some outdated things like the carpet and walls. Nice balcony. Next to construction site but we are hard sleepers and it didn't cause us any issues. Staff was very friendly and helpful. No pool but musty smell in halls like there should have been. Excellent location for everything.... More

We reserved 3 hotel rooms so the family could enjoy the night life of hln. The hotel is in a good location for this. Rooms were very clean which I find very important. The hotel was under construction on the 3rd floor. I did not explore other floors. The rooms needed general minor repairs which is probably covered by construction.... More
