It is worth staying here if you're on a budget and want to be in the heart of Waikiki. It's clean, things to do all around, short walk to the beach and shopping. It lacks extravagance but the price reflects that. This is the value of staying here.

We booked this hotel for 3 nights before leaving for a cruise on January 1, 2011. We had a choice between this and the Hilton, and this was 1/2 the cost. I was leery but also saw other traveler reviews and it sounded great. We were there to tour Oahu, so were not interested in a big pool/lounge area so this suited our needs. Arrived on a Wednesday and they were having a Manager welcome party, with a drink, food, band. Lovely lobby, smaller hotel, and easy check in. Room was very clean, furntiture a little dated, but clean, great bed, and a balcony with a view of Waikiki and Diamond Head. Ver pleased. Did not use the pool. Location was super because it is across from the Hilton, but on the edge of the main strip of Waikiki and Honolulu, not noisy like Waikiki, and cheaper/faster trips with shuttles to airport and cruise ship. 5 minute walk to main Waikiki and 10 minute walk to major shopping in Honolulu. All very safe walking at night. Hotel was very helpful with all our questions, always had coffee and fresh lemon water in the lobby and we were so comfortable there. Had a laundrymat in the hotel, which we used just before getting on our ship. If you are planning on touring Oahu, and not just hanging around the hotel, this is perfect for the price.

I stayed here for two days as an extension of a business trip. The room was really nice, a bit stuffy though, and the staff were really polite. There was grime in the coffee machine and they immediately replaced it with a new purchase, which they opened in front of me. The hotel is only a block away from the beach. For those who are into scenery, this place might not be so romantic as it is on a street. But I fully enjoyed my stay and I am planning to stay again this summer.

We spent 6 nights at the Aqua Palms and overall were pleased with the value. The location is very convenient. The room showed a little wear, but was still quite adequate and nice sized. The staff was helpful and friendly. If you're renting a car, rent something small as the garage is really tight. My only complaint was that we booked our room over 6 months in advance and had requested a room with two beds rather than the king and sleeper sofa (which their site states is an option), but we ended up with a king/sleeper room just the same. In any case, you can go right past that IHOP to the Wailana Coffee House on the corner--it's a great way to start your day.

The room was clean and well maintained. Our room was smaller than any of the ones they show in the pictures. We really did not care about how big the room was becasue we only used it to sleep and shower. The staff was friendly and helpfull. Never used the pool, but why would you you are in Hawaii. the only real complaints I had was we landed early and had to wait for hours before we could get our room. I also really didn't like the location, but hey we dont really like waikiki we mostly hang out on the north shore and windward side of the island so it was a bit of a drive to get there.

For the price ($99/night), this was a very nice hotel. The lobby is small, but the room was of good size. The location is good, but it is not right on the beach. It's about a five minute walk to the beach, but you have to cross a busy street. The shopping district in Waikiki was also about a 5 minute walk. The room was clean and spacious. It had a refrigerator, a microwave, and a small couch (sleeper, I think). There was a nice balcony with a view of Waikiki, including a partial view of the ocean (blocked by some other buildings). My only dissatisfaction was the street noise. The hotel is on a busy street, and even though I was on the 8th floor, I could still hear lots of cars, trucks, ambulances, etc. If I were to stay here again, I would ask for a room on the back side of the hotel away from the street.
