TV is still Tube Type! Staff, has no knowledge of anything, and there is an actual Dive Bar on premises with no souls in... More

I have traveled a lot and realize there is a distant difference between a 2.5, 3 and 3.5 star hotel. With that being said, this is a 2.5 star hotel that is a great value for he money that is just a few blocks from hotel rooms that are $400 a night... If your expectations are that you would get...

My mom and I stayed here at the end of last month. I believe I initially booked a standard room but we were given a room on the 16th floor with a huge lanai and a partial view of the ocean! This was definitely not a standard room! This hotel is located on the outskirts of Waikiki which I think... More

We came here at the end of our honeymoon, to stay for two nights. When we went to check in, we were told that the room we would be in had 4 single beds. This was certainly not what we had booked. We asked for a room with a double or queen bed, which they did have available (why they... More

I initially booked a deluxe city view room with two beds for a girls weekend in Waikiki. When I arrived I was given a room that was nothing like it looked in the pictures and it had one king size bed. I asked to be moved to another room but all the rooms with two beds were booked. The staff... More

We stayed at the Waikiki Gateway for five nights in March, 2014. The check in process was very smooth, but then we arrived into our room. It absolutely stunk of cheap air freshener which almost brought tears to your eyes, it was that strong. Opened the doors to let in fresh air, but the traffic noise was so loud, it... More

I stayed @the Waikiki Gateway for 2 nights until my condo @ Wyndham Royal Garden was available. Upon arrival, check in went well and staff was very nice. Renos in the lobby looked good and pics online weren't bad so I figured it'd be palatable! Wrong!! Dimly lit hallways and a musty odor throughout the hotel was a clear indication... More

I spent 3 nights here. It's difficult to locate the hotel coz the logo is not big and not lighten up at night. The valet parking is $25/day which I think is not bad. Nice people and convenient location. Close to restaurants and shopping mall. But the place is old especially the washroom. And the AC kinda loud. I have... More
