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

Pros: * very friendly and helpful staff *attached parking garage with free parking *walking distance to beach, shops, and restaurants Cons: *very dated furniture (like a college dorm), chipped bathroom fixtures, chipped/cracked tiles in kitchen *bedrooms are VERY small - second bedroom has two twin beds and you could barely walk into the room to get into bed.

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

Clean, comfortable, dated condo hotel with pleasant staff. Close to shopping (groceries, sundries, and luxury shops), restaurants, and Waikiki beach. Each morning we strolled down (2 blocks) to the beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian for a quick dip, walk, and view of the morning surfers. Stayed in a Deluxe (higher floor) Studio. Comfortable room with a king and... More

The Ilima Hotel is a good choice if you wish to stay in a reasonably-priced room or suite in Waikiki. When I stayed at this hotel for a week in October, they charged no resort fee. They have a garage with a certain amount of free onsite parking (but be aware that only the smallest of cars will fit comfortably... More

Chose this after reading reviews that showed it was excellent value for a great location and were not disappointed. It was a family run hotel that was slightly run down but the king suite on an upper floor was perfect for 3 adults and allowed us to self cater with a good sized kitchen. There was a lovely view over... More
