We booked the best room of the hotel. 1702 which is an ocean view penthouse. First of all, we heard the other room very well, like they were in our room, from our bed. We heard them going to toilet, knocking at the wall, talking and i pass...this is inacceptable. 179$ plus tax and we booked a whole week. Coulnd... More

I stayed here for my honeymoon for about 2 nights and it was an average hotel. We had a mild argument that we didn't buy breakfast but the print out I had clearly showed it. So, I shouldn't be doubled charged. Anyway, breakfast wasn't fantastic, it was your usual buffet line with local fare. Wifi access apparantly wasn't free and... More

I stayed with my family for a week, mind you there is 4 of us in this room, first- I'd say is Housekeeping is a joke. The first day we stayed, I asked the maid if she could service the room and make the beds because it was almost 3 pm and we had left earlier in the day so... More

Home away from home. I stayed on June 21 for 1 night . It is great to walk into a place where the front desk remembers you after several months of not stopping by. Greeted by name is exceptional.. Bottle water upon arrival was nice....it was a hot day outside. The fresh flowers in the lobby really add a special... More

Hotel location is great - not really in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but more at the "GATEWAY" to it. Room was always clean and well kept. Pool is very inviting and relaxing. We had a view over looking Kalakaua Avenue so this was a great spot to see the Parades that weekend - our balcony was very spacious... More

Great location, helpful staff and an ABC store on site. Needs updating. We had a horrible box TV piece of crap from the 80's, but they state they are upgrading with flat panels. The lanai was nice and offered great views of major streets and traffic into Waikiki. It was a short walk through Fort Derussy Park to the ocean,... More

Employees are very nice and helpful. Valet parking is way too expensive!! Rooms are dirty and out of date. Need to fix the sliding doors or just replace it. Lobby area is too small. Should have a over night valet worker because I had to park my own vehicle many times after hours.

Perfect for a family vacation on a budget. Great location: near restaurants, beaches, shops, bus stops. Having a kitchen & fridge was very helpful. Room was not new, but clean & spacious. We had a corner room, having 2 balcony was a plus. The pool was small, but when you have amazing beaches with in walking distance, who needs a... More

Close to beach and all the shops. Complimentary breakfast buffet style every morning saved is big time from having to find a place to eat every morning or buying our own food. Polite and friendly front desk service. ABC store in the hotel. Very satisfied. No gym though.

Bought a groupon deal in March 2014 for the Waikiki Gateway Hotel. It was so cheap that I booked two rooms. Read reviews on Yelp afterward and thought I made a bad decision. Was pleasantly surprised by the facility. It is an older hotel in need of a re-model. Saying that the staff was friendly and helpful. The elevators were... More
