No complaints. Very pleased. Not a great neighborhood, but it just didn't matter. All my needs were met at the Pagoda, and I actually used some of the stores nearby. Room was clean, hot shower, fridge, etc., etc. I would totally recommend this hotel to any one looking for a clean, pretty, and great hotel at a very affordable price.... More

The location to the Ala Moana mall makes this a plus location(a mere three blocks). I mention the mall because the teenagers we traveled with loved the food court (it was massive and the variety is great for all appetites). The shopping at this mall is really upscale, all the really big designer names are there. Surprisingly, just outside the... More

Aloha Journalingrox, Mahalo for taking the time to post a review! I agree that our location is a wonderful asset and am thankful that you would be willing to stay with us again on your return. Though we are sad that we are losing the Terrace as affordable housing, our Tower is much quieter and we are currently installing new... More

We booked two double beds and ended up with 4 singles. A room that sleeps 4 and only has enough cutlery and crockery for two is not good enough.You have a coffee machine but no kettle. Between the two sites only 2 washing machines worked . The Wifi wasn't working in reception but nobody seemed to care. Mary Lou was... More

I was let in on the local secret of the Pagoda Hotel when I was on a one year fellowship on Oahu at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Many locals from other islands book their stay on Oahu at the Pagoda because they give a 'Kama'aina (local) rate' if you have a Hawaii drivers' license. Even without the local... More

Just what I ordered, 2 beds very comfortable. Carlos at front desk was most helpful, taking our luggage until we got back later. When I asked for extra towels, sugar or the faulty key-card, they came straight away and were most helpful, even logged my daughter onto the net when her purchased ticket was slow. Enjoyed our 6 day stay,... More

If you expect luxury, don't go for the terrace. You'll be walking across the street instead of being at the main hotel. The terrace was going through renovation so the look wasn't that great, but understandable. Although if you walk around the corner you'll see beds and furniture piled up next to two dumps trucks, not inside the dump itself.... More

Aloha Amalia A, Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts about Pagoda. I apologize for the inconveniences you encountered at the Terrace. Though it was clean, there shouldn't be things out of place (like the fork on the ground.) Will be losing the Terrace portion of our property next month, but we have installed kitchenettes in Tower... More

I only stayed for a night because I extended my trip a day and the hotel where I spent the rest of my vacation was booked the extra day. Nice hotel over all.

Overall review was very good. Easy to get checked in. No nonsense with the staff. Very friendly. Good room. Very COLD AC!! Room was quite. Beds were great. Close to Walmart and Ala Moana Shopping Center. But Pagoda COULD use an Honolulu Airport Shuttle.

We spent a week at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu. It is the best hotel if you consider its room and car package ($153 per night), its location - you can walk to a bunch of restaurants, stores like Ross and Walmart and the Ala Moana Shopping Center. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, although... More

We like staying here cause its close to Airport, Alamoana, and Waikiki. Its Value is pretty good for how old it is. You can walk to Beach and Shopping in minutes. I already booked 2 more stays here in Sept and Dec. On property dining is delicious and great bar.
