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. I got a 2 bedroom suite which also included a living area, kitchen, dining area (6 chair dining table) and 1 bathroom. Main room had a queen... More

Aloha Mayra S, Thank you for your review! I am overjoyed to hear that our accommodations fit your family well and that you liked our friendly service. I do apologize for the street noise, but being in the center of an urban area does pose some drawbacks, especially when you are on the ground floor. That said, I hope that... More

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.

Love staying at the Pagoda. Have been a returning guest for many years mainly because of the very convenient location of the hotel and the surrounding shopping and eateries. I use the Pagoda for both business and personal trips.

I was very happy with my stay at the Pagoda. The location was excellent. Walking distance to the mall, walmart, and Ross. Yes, the hotel is old. This is not the Marriott, but you are paying much less than the Marriott also and I thought the cleanliness was great. My room was very clean every, single day. I never had... More

I stayed at the Pagoda for two nights. I have nothing to complain about (although I did read the bad reviews before I travelled). I would not say this was the best hotel in town, but I do think the room I got was nice and cosy, but for me it was just a place to sleep and relax, after... More
