“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

I read many reviews of hotels on Waikiki and chose the Ramada Plaza Waikiki because of the consistant good reviews. We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone. Our room was very clean, the furnishings attractive and modern, we had a mini frig and microwave which was convenient. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Waikiki beach is within walking distance, ABC stores that have whatever you might need close by, The Ala Moana Shopping Center within a 10 minute walk having a multitude of stores and a very large food court. Be sure to find the Honolulu Cookie Company kiosk there and try all of the excellant shortbread cookies. Great for gifts to take home.

Aloha!

We are happy to hear that you had a great stay with us recently. It's always nice to hear what our guests have to say. I'm glad you liked our location and that you would recommend us to others. Thank you. And the shortbread cookies at the mall really are awesome. It's a good thing you discovered them; now you have a reason to return (as if you needed another reason). We look forward to your next visit and the opportunity to host your time, here in Hawaii, with us. Again, thank you for your business and your wonderful comments. Mahalo!

Very casual and local place to stay near Waikiki beach, shopping and restaurants. This is the second time we have stayed at the Ramada Waikiki and will continue to as bus lines stop right in front of the hotel. They have a very attentive staff and an onsite consierge that can book fun day trips for you and transportation back to the airport. Also there are many restuarants nearby. Reason for not 5 stars is only that you need to realizut there are not many good views of the ocean from this location by you are within close walking distance from Waikiki beach and Ala Moana part. Also on this stay the shower nozzle stuck and there was a leak in the sink faucet which we reported upon leaving.

Aloha!

Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad that you found our location so convenient. Being right on the bus line means that you don't need to rent a car to get around and with the beach being just a 5 minute walk across the street you can come and go quite easily. Plus with all the great restaurants in the area, you'll never go hungry. Thank you for staying here with us and we look forward to seeing you again in 2012! Mahalo Nui Loa!

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We booked on Hotwire and got It for $100US. It was clean, comfortable, 5 minutes to the beach by walking through the Hilton Village. The in-room refrigerator was a great convenience. Not a place for a romantic stay, in my view, but great for us as we were on a points run (LOL). We noticed a number of airlines use this hotel for their crew. Def better (imho) than the Aqua Palms we had also considered. There's a popular locally-run cafeteria for breakfast on the next corner.

Don't go to the IHOP - portions were simply enormous and priced to match, food was so so, and service was friendly but incompetent.

We stayed at the Ramada Plaza in Waikiki one night prior to embarking on a cruise of the Hawaiian Islands. It just so happened that our arrival coincided with the APEC meeting of world leaders and it took almost 2 hours to get from the airport to the outskirts of Waikiki (we walked the last mile). Check-in was pleasant and we found our room easily. The room was spacious and clean and had all that was needed for one night. The bed was a bid old (dent in the middle) but we slept fine. The did hear the TV and talking in teh room next door and wished we had brought our sound machine to drown-out the noise (lesson learned). We checked-out the next morning and the staff was very helpful in explaining where we would need to catch a taxi to the port (impossible to get in or out of Waikiki because of Security with Obama and other world leaders). We would definitely stay here again if it is a short trip.

Great clean motel just across from the very expensive Hilton. Only two blocks from the main bus pickup location used for most events. Desk help very helpful especially on how to get somewhere in the city.

Room Tip: We had a great view of the city on the 12th floor

The lobby was very clean and cute,
As were the rooms.Beds were huge And comfy with alot of pillows,my husband loved the flat screen tv. The bathroom was a little small but still clean.AC could have been colder and the hallways were strangely hot,but other then that the staff & location are great.
