This place is run down. I have no idea how people can give it 3 stars. The curtains are torn, the walls chipped. My sister in laws room had a blood stain on a sheet. If all you need is a cheap place to stay this is it.

The room was old and smelly. At night the cockroaches came out of the sink. The guest service said "thats because people left food". I think its because of little cleaning. Although the room was on the sixth floor, the steet noise was quite loud. Not a lot of sleep.

If you don't mind a little smell and can used to it or use some deodorant, and if you get the room on the cheap (70-90) then it's a good deal. Some ups though, the daily fee is only 10 and you get to use the safe, access to the internet, free water bottles and beach towels. The big screen... More

We have stayed at the Waikiki Gateway twice and just booked our next visit. The location is central to most anywhere you'd want to visit in Waikiki, the staff is really friendly, the onsite parking is convenient, and their kama'aina and weekly stay packages are such a value.

Hotel is in a great location. It is however run down and not very modern. It was however clean and a great last minute budget value hotel booking. Concierge were helpful with maps and directions and accommodated my after midnight arrival due to flight delay

The Gateway has gone over and beyond my expectations. I frequently travel to OAHU for business and always find that they have yet to disappoint. The guest service desk is always willing to help and they make me feel welcomed back. Pricing is very reasonable and their breakfast buffet meets my budget and fills me up. My place to go... More

This hotel is a dump. The drapes have holes all over them and lots of duct tape to try to cover them up. The bathroom is disgusting, you do not feel clean showering in it. The shower walls need a good painting and the tub is so dirty it can not be cleaned. The staff is not helpful at all.... More

It's very clean hotel not a fancy but very good for the price. I booked this hotel three weeks before my trip and the price was very good. You have wifi in your room and there's laundry place. Oh, don't forget, there's ABC store at the lobby and trolly stop is right at the hotel front door.

Lobby was beautiful. Check in was at 3... No early check in unless you pay $20. Arrived at 2:30, room not ready. Waited 30 minutes still not ready. 5 minutes later it was ready after I kept bugging them. Room decent for price. Holes in curtain with duct tape covering. A/C dripped onto balcony and puddled until it dripped off.... More
