“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Just got back, and we had a great stay at the Waikiki Resort hotel. I wished we had a view of the ocean. Our room was on the 11th floor facing the street.

We're delighted you had a "great stay," and saw value in our "great location." While we regret that the limited vanity space and lighting fell short, we want you to know that they will be used for future consideration when it is time to incorporate upgrades to our bathroom. Mahalo and Aloha.

We stayed here for two nights in June. The hotel is in a great location, one block back from the beach The room appeared clean, but rather dated. The rates were reasonable. Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Last renovated in 2008, we acknowledge the need for a fresh guest room facelift. Having said that, we are pleased with recent upgrades to our lobby and guest room beds and have near-term plans for upgrading our bathroom and guest room carpeting. Glad you found value in our location, reasonable rates, and friendly service which we hope, with further improvements in the foreseeable future, prompts you to choose us again on your return trip to Hawaii.

My wife and I just had the pleasure of spending a 5 day layover at the Waikiki Resort Hotel at Waikiki Beach Hawaii.

We booked this motel because of the great reviews on Trip Adviser and we were not disappointed. We booked an ocean view room and were given a beautiful room on the 18th floor with great views of the ocean. We could lie in bed and watch the surfers riding the waves and the boats cruising past.

The position of the Hotel is ideal for a Waikiki visit, it could not be more central to the best area of Waikiki. We were able to walk to the best restaurants and attractions and my wife was able to catch a local bus into the shopping center at Ala Moana for $2.50 return.

The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly and our room was maintained very well.

Waikiki Resort Hotel will now be our go to accommodation when we visit Hawaii.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors for the best views and quietness.

Stayed here for two nights with my wife during 2014 Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is at the southern end of the Waikiki area and just minutes away from the beach. The rates are quite affordable and won't break your budget. (There are no resort fees charged on top of Hawaii's taxes, so that's a plus) The room we got was well-maintained and we had no problems with it either. Nothing super fancy, but had all the basics were included.

Wifi is only at the lobby, as you have to pay extra to get it in your room. I can see how this might be inconvenient for some, but it didn't bother me. You also need to pay for parking at the hotel (which hotel doesn't in Waikiki?) but you're really close to the Zoo and Aquarium area that you can manage to find free overnight parking there if you are okay with walking 10 minutes or so. It's a nice comfortable walk along the beach in the evening anyways, so why not enjoy it?

There are two restaurants at the hotel, which we did not eat at. Given that the hotel is owned by Koreans, it's not surprising that one of the restaurants was a Korean BBQ at a very competitive price.

So the bottom line is, if you're looking for a true resort getaway in Waikiki, this might not be your place. For those who want to spend more on the things to do while in Honolulu other than the room you're sleeping in, I'd recommend this place.

In line with the hotel's 3 star rating, this is a "no frills" property. However given our location, quality accommodations, friendly service, and reasonable rates, and knowing what neighboring hotels charge, our repeat guests continue to tell us of their appreciation for the value they are getting for the money spent. We're delighted you saw the same value and certainly appreciate your review.
Please come back again. Again mahalo.
