“Great value and good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We stayed here for two nights and was very happy with the hotel. We liked the open-air environment in the lobby area. There are free apples for guests to enjoy on the check-in counter. Dexter was very helpful in checking us in. The room was very spacious for the four of us. The bathroom was also very spacious too. There is a safe in the room to keep your valuables. The WiFi connection was pretty good. The location is very close to everything. iHop is right at the corner.

Breakfast was included and we enjoyed the sweet pineapples and oranges every morning. Ice water is always available in the lobby area. We had a great time here. We wish we can stay longer!

Room Tip: Higher floors should be better.

Clean, tidy hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds, great rooms with everything you need including microwave and sink for cooking facilities. I couldn't recommend this hotel any better. Came from a 5 star to this hotel and felt far more comfortable and appreciative to all staff!

We stayed here for 9 nights.

Initial impression was that the building was very old. Upon check in, we found the room to be sufficient. It looks recently renovated though still showing its age. We stayed in a Junior Suite and it was a good size. Housekeeping did a good job keeping the room clean and tidy.

The breakfast was almost the same everyday but no complaints.

I think the best part of the hotel was the staff. Dexter and Michael were very friendly and did their best to ensure that our stay was a comfortable one.

We stayed here for a total of 8 nights and were very happy with this hotel. Staff, especially Dexter, were very helpful. It is in walking distance of all major attractions in Waikiki. Rooms were clean and serviced daily. We were a group of four adults and found our room a good size. Would stay here again. The breakfast could be improved a little, but it is still sufficient to get your day off to a good start. Would highly recommend this hotel, we had a great stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the higher floors (8 to 10) so you get a bit of a view, if you are lucky a sea view, and the...

We thought we would stay in this hotel since they had a great price and the hotel seemed to be in a good location.

Property: The rooms were small but upgraded. Enjoyed the decor and it was cute. There were one small cleanliness issue in the bathroom on the door. There was a balcony in the room which was nice but it overlooks a construction site so not much to see here. They didn't really do much renovation to the lobby area and it looked more like a converted pool deck. The bed in the room was very comfortable and the air conditioning was working well which is really what you need in Hawaii. Internet was fairly good.

Breakfast: There was a breakfast that we didn't take advantage of. It stops serving at 9 AM and since we were on holiday, we didn't have plans to get up and go down for breakfast in a hurry. For a resort, one would assume that this amenity would be more suited to visitors and not business folks.

I stayed here due to the rave reviews regarding service, but I found that the service was absolutely mediocre at best. We checked in with Kevin who didn't smile once during the whole experience. We called down to ask another agent about activities that didn't involve much walking and was told about hiking trails nearby. I found the service to be uncaring or that they didn't listen/read their guests. The staff constantly shout interactions with each other across the lobby area which is quite alarming.

Overall, the hotel is okay and not sure if I would stay again. Maybe give it one more shot to see if the service standards would be at the level everyone else described.

Excellent hotel and location. The staff was very helpful and goes above and beyond to make your stay excellent. Mike and Kevin went above and beyond to find me a shuttle to the airport. The room was very nice and clean and the beds are very comfortable. Great location and hotel! Checked in on July 6 and stayed a week and the Aqua Oasis couldn't have been better. I live on Oahu and stayed here before a move to Big Island and this place will be a top recommendation to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of Waikiki.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong here.
