I was quite worried reading these reviews... Do not listen to them. Yes, this is a smaller hotel and it is a fixer upper. However, the staff are so kind, having the amenities of a pool, free bottle of water and beach towels are fantastic. Wee stayed on the 4th floor, yes there were signs on the ceiling of water...

We spend 10 days in this hotel. We really fell bad about the hygiene management. And every day we have to stay with some bugs even I always tried to kill them up as I saw them. They still appeared. It`s really awful memory. As for their service, the front desk is not so kind.

The first room we were assigned on August 10 had a hole in the drape (and liner) about a foot in diameter. The hole let a lot of light into the room in the morning when we would have preferred to sleep. After much discussion, the staff agreed to change the room for the remaining four nights. The second room... More

Love staying here. The staff is awesome! So nice and beyond helpful. The rooms are sometimes a little used looking but are incredibly clean. Many of the rooms have been renovated. So if you get one that hasn't, ask to be moved to one that has. The penthouses are the best, but you'll have to pay a little more for... More

Not all rooms are renovated as shown in pictures. We had to ask for a change in our room as it was not advertised anywhere of the different type of rooms and the one we got was not what we paid for. Bathrooms are old, with stains of rust, mold, yellowing sink.... Curtains in bedroom were broken and carpet not... More

We stayed at the Waikiki Gateway Hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is very well positioned - it is only a short stroll to the beach and all the action in Waikiki. Our room was not ready when we arrived (we were on a very early flight in from Sydney) but we were able to leave our bags at reception... More

My wife and I stayed from Sunday, August 9th 2015 till Friday, August 14th, 2015 to celebrate our honeymoon. We chose stay in a room with a kitchenette so we could purchase groceries and not eat out as often. Initially, we were placed in room 509. Sunday evening we noticed roaches around the kitchenette area. This was unacceptable, so we... More

I'm from Kauai & first staying here in 2014 was the best experience ever! Service was amazing! Tended to my every need. I met the most amazing people. Rochelle concierge, Anthony the security guard.
