The arrival at the hotel was great. Staff was sooo friendly. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We were greeted everyday by lovely, friendly, helpful porters whenever we would leave or arrive at the hotel. The night time view from our balcony was of bearutiful Waikiki lights...we were on the 14th floor and loved it. The airconditioners worked, which was... More

Thank you to all who reviewed this hotel so I could book it and have realistic expectations. The Hotel exceeded all areas. I had a kitchenette double room and stayed for 8 days. I needed a very late check-out and it was accommodated for a small fee. Family-friendly, very affordable and super clean. This charming boutique hotel is one I... More

Number 1 was the staff ! We enjoyed our stay as the room was very comfortable and the view was nice. The location for us was perfect. It is across the street from a nice green grass park and a few minutes walk to the beach.We like to walk so as the hotel is on the North side of Waikiki,... More

My husband and I have stayed here 4 times over the past few years. When we first stayed there, the bed collapsed when I sat on the edge. The staff was so accomodating that they gave us a suite for same price as a double. Last three times we have stayed in the penthouse suite (room 1701) with great views... More

The staff were great and full of information on where to take buses for local attractions, best spots for night clubs etc. and always greeted you with friendly Aloha. The lobby was very... More

We are demanding travellers, in terms of accommodations. We are quite happy with three star hotels. The staff was first rate. We arrived at 11:30 pm, the clerk was very good at his job and friendly. The day staff was just as professional and friendly. We are told that it has changed ownership and will be renovated.

Best thing about the gateway was the value and its proximity to shopping/restaurants/beach. Although the beach wasn't that close the walk through ft derussy was pleasant. The rooms are fairly clean although the balcony/lanai was disgusting. Chipped paint , leaking AC from above. I felt like I needed college shower sandals to walk around. Staff was friendly and helpful but... More

banderson2070, Guest Relations Manager at Waikiki Gateway Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your recent comment. Due to the trapezoid shape of our building, during intense rain showers like we've had these past couple weeks, guest lanais often do experience dripping from the above lanai. I am sorry this was not to your satisfaction, but hope that you will see past this and visit the islands again in the near... More

It's a good location, and the hotel is by no means great, but met the expectation of a cheap hotel. You pay for what you get, as far as quality. But I can honestly say that I have never been treated so poorly by a manager in my life. The front desk was great, but the manager Dennis was beyond... More

The room was very clean-- all surfaces were polished and floors fit for bare feet. The hotel location and value were more than satisfactory. I will be a repeat customer in the future, for sure. JC

Had a nice experience at the Gateway. !5th floor double lanai with city and ocean views best part of stay. Furnishings old, nothing fancy. Room cleanliness was adequate. Nice personnel throughout hotel. Overall for the price a very good deal.
