“Third time lucky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is the third time that I have stayed at the Circle. Go back each time because of the great location, service and staff. Like past visits, the location is the same. Across the road from the beach, the staff are the usual friendly and helpful and the room is always clean and comfortable. If you are looking for over the top luxury or space than maybe this is not for you. If you are after honest clean quiet accomodation than give it a go. Do try to get a high room floor as the lower floors can be a little noisy due to the traffic and Eggs and Things eatery on the ground floor. But overall very happy with the stay.

Room Tip: The floor from about 6 up are better due to the traffic and Eggs and Things on the ground floor.

Excellent location, good prices and very nice staff.
We stayed in an ocean front room and loved sitting on the balcony watching people walking past.
Directly across the road is the beach, which is fantastic.
The only thing that was irritating is the lady that sits downstairs trying to get you into a "special deal of the day". Every time we walked past, she would pester us!

Room Tip: When booking, pay the extra for an ocean front room!

We stayed at this hotel for one night precuise on April 24,2013 The location is outstanding !!!! It is right across the street from Wakiki beach. It is in a great location! We had and Ocean front room on the 14th floor. We had a fabulous view of the ocean. It was magnificent. The room were smal but more than enough room for two people. The staff were very nice and helpful. Our flight landed early and we we able to check in early. Spend the extra dollars and get an Ocean front room.The view is so worth it!! If you are looking for a hotel like the outriggers or some of the other more expensive hotels this hotel is not for you. if you want a hotel with great views of Ocean and clean rooms with a nice staff. Give this hotel a try. There were plenty of places to eat and shop. The hotel is right across front the beach. Everything is within walking distance. All of the rooms have balconys. they will also store your luggage for you if it is needed. Ask for a rooms on the 10th floor and up, that way it wont be as noisy.Would definitely stay here agan . the beds were comfortable. Rooms were basic but clean. There is no room service but plenty of eating places within walking distance. Do Give this hotel a try. For the price you cant beat it. It was the cheapest hotel I found on the strip.

This hotels in a great location beautiful views of the ocean, with in walking distance of down town and diamond head. Very basic hotel with very little service. Cleaning staff were friendly. A/C very noisy and the noise from the street was sometimes to much. WI-FI was quick. Beds comfortable and bathroom clean. Overall expensive and not extremely flash but worth the $$ for the views

This hotel may not have as many luxuries as many others do, but the location is great, and the room had everything we needed. Great view of the shoreline from our room so that we could watch the surf and try to go out there when there weren't as many people on the waves. The A/C was very loud in our room, but thankfully I had my earplugs. Clean, simple, everything we needed, and for a better price than some others.

Room Tip: Try to get one that allows you to see the shoreline if you are interested in going surfing in Waikik...

First stayed here many years ago & the magic is still here, fabulous restaurant downstairs, incredible location across from the Waikiki/ Kuhio beach - only 10 steps across the road ! Retro decor but recent, the bathrooms are fresh. The beautiful staff: nothing is too much trouble & always courteous. WIFI, DVD, local calls & daily newspaper included in low resort fee.
The Oceanfront balconies are your best options too seek the sun and view the surf & the amazing street/ seascape views. Today we re on Lvl 8 - perfect views & our bed is very comfy. I am an international flight attendant & I get to stay in some amazing hotels all around the world - this little gem is still an all time favourite!
It's an iconic landmark with a strong following amongst savvy travellers !

Room Tip: ROOM: Choose Oceanfront - with LARGE balconies with best Waikiki/Kuhio beach/ocean , sunset views &a...
