Here's a short summary: Pro: - Low price - Convenient location (Close to all the nice shops, Waikiki beach and bus stop in front of hotel) - Free internet access with 6 PCs - Outdoor Swimming Pool - Self-serve Coin laundry - Free breakfast - Great...

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel because it was cheap and said it was in a good location and because of some the reviews we read were pretty good and the pictures didn't look to bad. Everyone was so wrong and must have been blind. Well when we arrived at the hotel and got into our room it was... More

I am a resident in Hawaii. So I got the "Kamaina" rate which is a discounted rate with a valid Hawaii Id. I still paid a RIDICULOUS AMOUNT FOR WHAT WE GOT! . There was an ant problem in the bathroom ( a really bad one at that!) My bf and I had to put chewing gum is some of... More

I have read all the crummy reviews on this place, but when I checked the prices on Waikiki, we decided to stay there (we stayed 3 nights on our way back to Alaska from Kona).......and I was so pleasantly surprised!!! For the price (you can easily spend two to five times the amount they charge for a night), the place... More

This was our first trip to Hawaii for my husband and myself. We enjoyed our stay at the Gateway. Everything is at your fingertips. The bus is right out front. The ABC store is right there and has almost everything you may need (i.e. bread,milk, wine, sandwiches, hotdogs...) There is TGI Fridays across the street. You can take a bus... More

We stayed at the Gateway Hotel in August. We chose it for the value and we're a little leary about what we were going to get. When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was very spacious and clean. The beach was a very short walk. Restaurants and stores were less than a block away. The staff was... More

We enjoyed Waikiki, but you should be aware that this hotel does not offer much security. We awoke at 9:00 pm to find one of the hotel staff in our room, unannounced. The room was OK for the price, worn but clean. Just don't leave valuables in the room.

This property is a little tired. Needs some refurbishing. They're working on the exterior, lanai's, etc., presently. Rooms are simply furnished. The musty odour, It is the tropics after all, disappears quickly after the a/c is turned on. Again furniture, carpet, fixtures have seen better times. On the other hand the rooms are large and serviceable with a fridge and... More

I've stayed at this place twice - both times i was looking for a budget hotel and not planning to spend much time indoors. The location is good (opposite Nike Town - about 5-10 min walk from beach, close to shops, restaurants etc). The first time (Feb 2005) I had a corner room on the 15th floor - nice views... More
