“Well Located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to HNL. The worst thing is its nightly rate. It's clean, adequately furnished with good beds, and a really good restaurant, which, unfortunately, is not open every evening. The shuttle service is reliable and efficient. The drivers, as well as the rest of the staff, are courteous and competent. My wife and I will stay there again when I have a morning flight out of HNL, which is usually the case.

There are limited hotel choices near HNL, none of them above 3*. It is not an attractive locale, in that a noisy double deck freeway runs right next to the few hotels. So you only stay here if you need to be near the airport, or near the Kaiser Hospital. For a few dollars more, you can stay in Waikiki.

Hotels in Honolulu are pricey for what you get, and the airport hotels are no exception. When we stayed here overnight late March 2015 (for some Kaiser Hospital procedures) the kama'aina rate (for Hawaiian residents) was $159 plus $22 tax. Another nearby hotel was $170 +$25. The very nice 4* Prince Honolulu hotel near the yacht harbor was also $170, better value, ocean views, great beds.

That said, it's a $50 cab ride across Honolulu in traffic! So we stayed here.

We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was clean, well-maintained and comfortable. If you ask for a room on the side away from the freeway (odd-numbered rooms) noise is not a problem. Our only quibble (apart from the price for a 2.5* hotel room) is that the elevator is very, VERY slow. I walked down the stairs several times instead.

Nice staff, clean comfortable (not fancy) rooms. Nice to have decent wifi in room at no charge. Recommended for HNL overnight.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms on the side away from the freeway. All of these are king beds.

This is an open air airport. Meaning there aren't many windows. Considering it's an island that's ok. The airport looks like it's straight out the 70's. Well a certain part of it. The airport is more modern on the other end. The sights from the airport are breathtaking. ALOHA

I had to stay at the Airport Best Western Honalulu, the hotel needs a lot of updates, but the staff was excellent, especially Sharon our shuttle driver and front desk lady! She was so helpful, and had a great additude!

Aloha Firefighter100,

Thank you for your review and for staying with us earlier this month! However after reading your review, I believe you stayed at our sister hotel, Best Western The Plaza Hotel.

We do not have a staff member at Airport Honolulu Hotel named Sharon. However we do have one at Best Western The Plaza Hotel. We will be sure to share these comments with her, as well as her colleagues. We are glad to hear Sharon was able to make your stay enjoyable.

Thank you again and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Our flight diverted to Honolulu and we arrived very late without a place to stay for the night. We found the Airport Honolulu Hotel on Trip Advisor. It fit what we needed for a one night layover. Although the hotel is dated, it is clean and comfortable. We didn't eat at the restaurant, so I can not speak to that. It has an airport shuttle which arrived quickly. The hotel is very close to the airport and the highway, so it is a noisy area. The hotel itself was quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway.

Our family stayed at the Airport Honolulu Hotel for 5 weeks while waiting for a house. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our housekeeper Norma was wonderful. The front desk staff are great. The restaurant staff are also amazing. Highly recommend the hotel especially for military families.

I stayed here after landing at HNL very late. I called the shuttle and it arrived 10 minutes later. Staff was excellent. The hallways are outdated and even the room is but it was quite clean and comfortable. The bed was excellent. Breakfast in the restaurant was very, very good. It's noisy on the outside - it's surrounded by highways - but the room was quiet.
