The staff have been very helpful during our stay. while the hotel is dated - it is comfortable,clean and well looked after. We booked the three bed room penthouse for the six people in our group. It was a perfect base to explore Oahu and had ample parking for the car we hired.

We stayed at Ilima for four nights and our experience was great. The studio was huge, clean and had everything we needed. They offer free parking which has limited space but we were able to park our car every day/night. The hotel staff is very friendly and you can feel a friendly atmosphere from the moment you enter the hotel.... More

We were looking for an apartment in the Honolulu-Waikiki area for four people for three weeks over the Christmas and New Year holiday. We needed a minimum of two bedrooms and preferably three and would not consider a place that listed the living room with sofa bed as one of the bedrooms. We began our search in early July and...

Chose the Ilima based upon TA rating. Hotel was was in a good location for restaurants & 4-5 blocks from the beach. Front desk was very personable. Rooms were dated and showed their age (70's). Beds were just OK (again age). Construction, which started early, just a block away could be heard inside with the balcony door closed. Good value... More

Booked this hotel on our first night of a O'ahu vacation. Wanted to stay downtown and experience a weekend in Honolulu. Great location to walk to the busy downtown shopping area of Honolulu and find a restaurant for lunch or supper. This is an old hotel and needs a lot of updating but still works as a place to stay...

We were on the 11th floor, Ala Wai side, with a superb view of the city and mountains. No, it isn't glitzy and full of the latest gizmos, it is full of friendly and helpful staff, comfortable spaces, a quiet location, free parking, and made the base for a great re-acquaintance with Waikiki. I want to go back ! We... More

Stayed in the penthouse suite for a week with six adults and two children. It was spacious! From the livingroom you had to strain to hear my infant son crying in the master bedroom, so his crying and my husband's snoring didn't bother the other couples in our suite. The in suite washer and dryer are tiny (fits two pairs... More

This is obviously an older hotel but some updates could help a lot. The room was clean but there were rips in the wall paper and carpets. We found a huge cockroach on our patio one night, but thankfully never in the room. We had a room with a kitchen but couldn't make a dinner for 5 since we had... More

Many of my relatives have stayed here when visiting Honolulu for vacation or business. The reviews are accurate. For the price you pay the value is superb. Comfortable rooms with full kitchens. Away from much of Waikiki's hubbub and noise but still near the beaches and world-class shopping. Individualized attention from a very helpful and friendly staff that you don't... More
