My husband and I stayed at very cheap (and even camped) for most of our stay in Oahu, so we wanted to splurge just one night to have a nicer hotel. This definitely was not the place to do that. There was major construction in the lobby, we didn't have water for the first couple of hours of our stay,... More

I arrived a day late after being stuck at JFK Airport for the night. My mum called to let them know and she said the lady who responded was very polite and kind. On arrival I was greeted at reception by a warm friendly face and was checked in straight away. My room was very clean with two double beds... More

Due to a last minute cancellation on a previous booking, I had to scramble to find another hotel to stay at. Looking at the reviews for this hotel, I expected that it would be a clean place but nothing special. And I was right. The location of the hotel makes it easy to walk to the Ala Moana Shopping Center... More

Room was ok. Hotel/rooms were a bit dated. Room service was accomodating. Swimming pool was small, but we didn't care for it because we'd rather soak up the sun @ the beach because not everywhere you'll find a "Hawaiian Beach" but a better chance @ finding a pool. lol. Didn't eat @ the buffet because it was a bit pricey... More

The reason me and my girlfriend booked this was because it was in a decent area and relatively cheaply priced. We were a bit nervous about going after looking at very mixed reviews but I don't have too many complaints about Pagoda. The receptionist wasn't a smiley character but our room was clean when we arrived and so was the... More

I have stayed at the Pagoda many times over the past 20 years & will continue to stay there when in Honolulu. If you want to experience "local" flavor, this is the hotel to stay at. The location is really convenient - not only to the Ala Moana Shopping Center, but to lots of little local eateries & shops -... More

Aloha Tinani I, Mahalo for your review! We are very fortunate to have long-time returnees to our property like yourself, and are very grateful that you took notice of some of the improvements that we have made. Our work is not done, though. We will begin renovation on the guest bathrooms and are almost complete with installation of wifi capabilities... More

If I could give this place less than terrible I would. Yes, the original price was CHEAP however, after the "convenience fee" (which included in room internet access that was not up and running" and parking fee everyday ended up being MORE than staying at the Courtyard Marriott in Waikiki. We ended our stay early and decided to check into... More

Overnight only, check in was easy and coordinated, room was a slight upgrade - mostly in size. No real views here to speak of but close to lots of places you may want or need to go. Ala Moana Center is just out the door, plenty of local style food spots and some really good recent finds for our trip.... More

Lets start with the good. I will give this hotel the benefit that it is located in the heart of Honolulu and within walking distance from Alla Moana Mall as well as many other local locations. However everything from there goes down hill. The rooms are relatively priced however their is fee on top of fee for every standard hotel... More

We just spent 6 nights at the Pagoda. It was a last minute booking and after seeing some of the reviews I expected a scary dirty dump. It actually was pretty close to excellent! We were given a room on floor 9 with two doubles and when I requested a king bed, Carlos smiled and gave us a corner room... More
