The hotel is well located and includes parking in the room cost (no extra charge unlike most other hotels in Waikiki). During our stay, we always found a parking spot although they are offered on a "first come first served" basis (ie, they are not reserved on a room number or floor basis). The room was clean and included a... More

All the staff we met at the Ilima were very friendly. We never passed in or our without receiving a cheery smile and an ‘Aloha’. They are a credit to the hotel. We stayed for a week in June, and booked a Deluxe Studio room at just $130 a night, which is excellent value for Waikiki. They offer standard, superior... More

Our family had a very rough start to our Oahu Hawaiian vacation. The rental that we booked through TripAdvisor was inhabitable, and I truly believe it was a scam and not a legitimate rental. We would NEVER book through TripAdvisor again and FYI - they DID NOT stand behind their “Peace of Mind” guarantee! After our long flight, our bitter... More

Had a wonderful stay here. Staff was always pleasant and very helpful whenever we had any questions. At first glance the room seemed outdated with pink carpeting but aside from that, our room was very clean and very spacious. It was also great having a kitchen so we could cook our own meals when we felt like it. There is... More

I don't know what other people are talking about...this place is a dump! Looks ok in the lobby but room was disgusting, smelly, gross, outdated, etc! Comforter had huge nasty stains (as did the carpet!) I was so grossed out by this room! These other reviews are NUTS. If you like prostitutes and homeless people, this is the place for... More

We stayed at 3 different hotels during our time in Honolulu. This was by far the best value for the location. It was close to the beach (walking distance) and very close to much of what Waikiki has to offer in terms of shopping, restaurants, tourism, and transportation. We were in a 2 bedroom suite that had a murphy bed... More

We just had a two night stay and had realized we were booking a budget hotel (at least for Waikiki), so we anticipated an older, somewhat shabby hotel. Well, it is older, but it is spotlessly clean, has everything you might want, comfortable beds with crisp linen and decent air conditioning. Parking is free (subject to availability) and the hotel...

It's not often that hotels in big cities offer such friendly service. After all, a room is a room, particularly for cost-conscious travellers. Despite being a little worn, the Ilimi Hotel is still a nice place to stay. It's close to the main sights (and easy to get to, even during traffic hours), close to public transit, and walking distance... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for 3 nights in August 2014. The room was very outdated: sofa was old and stained with a slip cover to hide the condition. Wallpaper was peeling, lamp shades were stained, and the bathroom walls were dirty. The bathroom floor around the toilet area was visibly dirty and was not cleaned even after... More

This was our first stay at this off-the-main resort listing. We were pleasantly surprised at the exceptionally large 'Superior Studio with Kitchen'. It was very clean, had lots of storage areas & perfect for our family with 2 older teens. The staff was great & informative in preparation for the Double Hurricane Threat. We didn't take advantage of the pool,... More
