4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. My room was was nice but had one small problem with the room and I notified the staff and they took care of the situation in room 913 ASAP. Issac and William are very detailed with the customers. I will defenitley stay here again and we are coming back very soon.

Fantastic location, friendly helpful ready to take care of you front desk staff. We were so pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. It was noisy on 5th floor (we were by the street) BUT hotel supplies you with ear plugs and it was great. We will stay here again - rooms decorated very nicely

I like the location of the hotel. It's only a block away to the beach and shops. There is restaurant in the hotel and across to it there is a Japanese udon restaurant. Next to it, there is ABC store and bakery shop. So, you dont have to worry about getting your grocery. Not only the location, but the service is also excellent. We booked for a 2 queen beds room, but when we arrive, the upgraded us to a 3 beds room. The beds are also very comfortable and the linen is qood quality material. Staffs are very helpful. Once we arrive, they helped me with luggages to the room. This hotel is recomended for all travelers.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in September 2012. Hotel in within easy reach of the beach about a block away. Car parking is $12.00 per day and if the car park is full you'll have to park nearby paying $20 and then claim the mney from the hotel. As for the rest I am not one for complaining all the time but on arrival we had to struggle with our luggage into the hotel no one offered to help up the steps. Staff on reception were friendly and as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and in our mid 50's we asked for a quite room but we got one opposite the elevators. That said there in no restaurant or bar at the hotel so it's basic although these are not to far away.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a view of bach and higher up the better

We just spent two weeks (again) at the Wave. The staff is phenomenal from the front desk to the housekeeping people. They all go out of their way to provide a feeling of being with friends and family. The amenities- tv, dvd, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, coffee, beach towels, daily newspaper- very much appreciated. This facility is just steps away from International Market Place and Duke's Lane.
The rooms are nice sized and kept clean. They no longer have a pool, but the beach is just a short walk away. I have been visiting Hawaii on a fairly regular basis since 1972 and have stayed at other hotels, but my family and I always enjoy our stays at the Waikiki Wave and will continue to book there.

Room Tip: Higher floors provide less street noise.

This was my first trip to Hawaii and this hotel had a good rate with American Airline package. I got the partial ocean view and they put me on the top floor (15th) where I indeed have a small view on the ocea, mostly blocked by other buildings. Comfort was adequate and room size pretty good. However wifi was slow and no breakfast provided. However, the Saint German bakery (a Japanese chain as I understand) had excellent bread and croissant made in the good French tradition (and I'm French by the way). Parking is convenient but an extra $20 per night. Staff was very friendly, including the maid who was very flexible with the hours when I needed to be left alone.
