We stayed in Waikiki Prince Hotel on our first arrival to Waikiki and subsequently when we came back from Big Island. Chardonnay the reception staff was very helpful and friendly. She is always cheerful and went above and beyond her duties to help us find out info we needed. Mahalo Chardonnay. The rooms were clean and have everything we needed.... More

I generally have some very basic qualifiers for any hotel; it should be clean, comfortable, convenient and have a staff that seems to care to some degree about its customers. Coming from an area with a lot of high end luxury resorts, there is always the danger of using these as the litmus test. Its not always a fair comparison,... More

After booking this hotel, we advised them that our flight would not arrive until later in the evening, so we would require a late check-in. We arrived approximately 8:25 pm to find the door locked and a sign saying that office hours were 8 am to 8 pm. Another sign listed our name as a late check-in, and instructed us... More

Aloha Colleen017, I am sorry to hear about this situation. Our intercom system generally works well, calling several different numbers to different people. The cell phone backup also should have worked just in case the intercom did not work. It would really help if you could send me your date of check in and your real name. I will check... More

Would definitely recommend this hotel for a short visit to Honolulu! They were very accommodating extending our check out time a few hours so we could enjoy the beach! Thanks Chardonnay!! She even went out of her way to verify our shuttle to the pier! Clean, safe budget hotel with a great location to Waikiki Beach!

Aloha Vernnie, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I will let Chardonnay know she did a great job. Some shuttle companies don't know where we are, or don't think people know where they want to go. We are happy to have assist you on your way to your next adventure. Mahalo More

The location was excellent, next to the Waikiki Beach, bus stops, shops, restaurants etc. The rooms were clean and the area is very safe. Ours was a twin room, the second bed was not confortable. There was also a small kitchen. The wifi was not working at all and this is an issue for me. The staff was very helpful... More

Aloha Dawgette , Thank you for your review. We were trying to upgrade the system during your stay. The new system did not work to expectation and we went back to our old system. The previous system was working for the past 7 months without much problems. I will look into the bed issue. We changed out the majority of... More

When we first walked into our room, I thought, "Oh, no!" It was very dated and small. However, we decided to give it a chance. I'm glad we did because we had a great stay. It was very clean and there were no bugs any where. The room had AC, microwave, stove, sink, and a good size "small" refrig. The... More

Aloha Dawgette, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Yes our hotel is quite dated. We are slowly getting up to speed on upgrading our hotel.

Nothing in the room was up to date. CRT TV, lights, spring mattress, cooker, noisy casement AIrcon, toilet, etc. size of room was also small... However it was clean and thankfully,... More

Aloha Kelaitre, We are sorry our hotel did not live up to your expectations. The photos on tripadvisor or our website give an accurate description of what our rooms look like. We are in the process of updating our hotel but most of changes will happen gradually. I will let the staff know they did a great job. Mahalo More

Stayed one day on each end of a 1 week cruise. Our travel needs are pretty minimal-a place to sleep and shower. Price was far lower than any other hotels in the middle of the Waikiki area. Positives, were cost/value, location, WiFi, and staff flexibility. The only negative is that the rooms were aged and could use minor "facelift" type... More

This place was definitely not as advertised or as highly reviewed by the Tripadvisor community. It's definitely a budget hotel and there's nothing wrong with that but I felt it was my duty to warn other visitors on what they should really expect from this hotel. First off, for about $100 a night there are much better options out there... More
