We went to Hawaii as a baby friendly destination before my wife went back to work from maternity leave. Let's start with the good: Price per night is better value than many of the other options. Ilima were accommodating, arranging a crib for our baby. Rooms, while dated, did have a fully equipped kitchen so we could re-heat any left... More

Spent 7 days at this property on our visit to Honolulu. We wanted a room with kitchen as we couldn't eat out for 7 days. The place was quite reasonable for the price, it's just a short walk to the beach. On the way to the beach is the market to under the giant banyan tree which is cool. The... More

Enjoyed our time at the Ilima. The full kitchen in the room was very useful, although we did not use the stove. It was fully equipped had we decided to cook. Instead, we just used the refrigerator and microwave for leftovers and snacks. We enjoyed the Friday night fireworks from the 10th floor sundeck thanks to a staff recommendation. Can't... More

We stayed one night as we arrived one day early for our 8 day vacation at our time share property. The staff were very friendly, the room was spacious and the parking free. Although the bed was uncomfortable (a personal preference), and the room was dated I would still give it four stars.

And the staff was really friendly :) After staying at Turtle Bay and Paradise Bay I was shocked that they were the only ones that gave us a lei. Finally felt... More

This is our 3rd time staying at the Ilima, and it continues to be a low-key, comfortable, clean place to stay. Our upper-level room facing the canal was big, clean, and with a comfortable bed. The staff continues to be professional and friendly. My main suggestion is to pay extra for an upper level room facing mauka (inland toward the... More

I have not been to a hotel with such friendly and capable staff. They bent over backwards to make your stay enjoyable form the free lei making session to letting us out on the penthouse level for evening canal photography. While an older hotel, it was clean, incredibly big, well equipped and quiet. Great value for the price. There is... More

5 minute walk to the beach and compared to prices of other hotels in the area this hotel had all you needed. Full kitchen, large rooms with balcony and friendly staff. Not a 5 star but I would stay here again.

Stayed here on our return trip back to Australia from the US, found the location very central and with the kitchenette in the room very handy for early breakfasts and late night snacks. nothing like the large hotel chains where the rooms are small and lack the friendliness associated with Hawaii. Our room was large and airy with a small... More
