Although the front desk staff was very nice and they accommodated my request for an accessible room, the room itself was less than satisfactory . The air conditioning kept going off, sliding doors for bathroom was jammed, closet door hard to slide open (door kept falling off the track) and although they offered DVDs for the additional mandatory $10 fee,...

We always stay at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu whenever we are away from home. We love the renovations in the lobby area. Our room was well prepared for our weekend stay and we are very very pleased...

Booked in advance from Australia and pictures a little better than what we found However it was quiet, and very close to Ala Moana shopping complex so handy and a little out of the tourist traffic. Staff were efficient but not focused on service or ensuring your needs were met. Some great small eating places for locals as well as... More

This hotel is dated and upon entering the room it felt like a converted Hospital. Average might be a bit much but it is not poor. A/C was mildewy and struggled to cool room. Counter employees friendly!!

I stayed here twice during day-or-two long layovers in Hawaii. It is centrally located in Waikiki and very close to many shopping areas. The room was comfortable. The negatives were a few tropical visitors my first morning (termites) and the small elevators which fill up quickly by guests and even quicker as they are also used for hotel services. I... More

If you're in a budget this is the perfect place. It's one the cheapest hotel but nevertheless it's still good, close to the beach and the staff is very friendly. I was traveling with a large group of girls and we didn't want to be separated into different rooms and they gladly accommodated us into a 5 person room. If... More

The hotel pictures online are deceiving. The rooms are dark and dingy;;did not look like room that was showN online..I refused to stay in the room; and asked if we could get our money..They offered us a free upgrade; room was semi-remodeled. . Many homeless seem to hang around the general location.

It's centrally located, within walking distance of a number of places including Ross's, Walmart and the Ala Moana Shopping Mall. On the corner is a terrific breakfast restaurant too. I find it a good place to stay with someone or by myself.

Called made reservations for same day check-in. Within "short" walking distance from many restaurants and Walmart (downtown area). Front desk staff was friendly, the hotel lobby was clean and airy. The rooms had window unit A/C, TV, clean and relaxing beds. Rode the bus to location. Walked around, felt safe and the adjacent restaurant menu and price were excellent. Hotel... More

Once again we experienced nothing but kindness, courtesy and aloha from the time we checked in. The staff in all departments couldn't have been more helpful. We had a quiet room on the top floor. Before leaving, they even printed out our boarding pass for us!
