Overall, the room was good. There were a few issues with the bathroom being in need of some repair and the glass was dirty, but had the paper top on it indicating that is was clean. It looked like it was left from the previous guest. Booking online was easy, but the button on the home screen indicated free parking... More

Upon walking out of the lift we were stopped in our tracks by the awful smell! This smell followed into the rooms, and was present our whole stay. The staff are friendly but I wouldn't recommend staying at the Waikiki Gateway Hotel. It is blocks away from the centre of Waikiki, not a long walk but annoying to do day... More

Great location. Very nice staff. Spacious rooms. Parking a little hard to figure out the first time - entrance from KUHIO ONLY and there are one way streets all around it. Fridge in rooms. Rooms (particularly the bathroom) dated but very clean and pretty quiet as well. Were working on installing new glass railing while I was there so construction... More

The Gateway is in an excellent location, at the entrance to Waikiki, and within walking distance of Ala Moana Center. The Ocean fronting rooms have a great view over Fort DeRussy park, and to the ocean, especially on the top half of the hotel, and are spacious with two balconies. These are definitely the rooms to stay in. The rooms... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Waikiki Gateway Hotel. It was a last minute booking and so the price was right for this time, but the hotel was not the same as I remembered it. The curtains to the room were so frayed that the light from outside was not blocked out. The bathroom is in... More

This is our third stay at the Waikiki Gateway. Of course it has its shortcomings but with the price, the free breakfasts, friendly and helpful staff and the easy access to the beach, the bus and the shopping, we will come here again.

The whole hotel needs remodeling. The lobby was remodeled recently, very nice. Too bad the staff is clueless and my upgrade to an ocean view room was $20/night, with black tape over the holes in the curtains (rm 1401) I wouldn't walk on the carpet with my bare feet it is so filthy, valet parking is $25/night and there isn't...

We came here as a recommendation. The staff was not overly friendly. The room smelled funny. Location was good however. We did not have an ADA room, my Father-in-law is disabled, it was very difficult for him to maneuver in the room, especially the bathroom. There were no carts available to take luggage down.

There was a big cockroach on the drape.(I called front and they gave me different room) The bath room was very smelly. Very old an filthy carpet, you don't wanna walk in a room with barefoot. They don't vacuums in the room everyday. The buff stayle break first was joke. Most of the customers are old Chinese and Korean. Friendly... More
