“Ramada Waikiki Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

It was excellent for the price you pay. What do you expect? if you want to have a place to stay right in the heart of Waikiki yet cheap and clean you can not get it from Sheraton or five star hotel. Who would want the hotel to be a part of your vacation? You do not want the hotel to ruin your vacation but it does not need to be extra special. They provide free internet, free ammenities. Internet is super fast. There is a 15 dollars parking fee but you go to other hotels where you do not pay for parking fee but yet you will have to pay for other stuff which turn out to be the same. The one trick people do not bring up on here is from this location, it is very easy to drive your car around town which is a big plus. It is easy to get in and out of the hotel which I can not say for other hotels. For us, a family of two and a small kid, the room provide two full beds which is more than enough. If I come back to Hawaii which I will, I will stay at this location again. if you are rich and wanted to be treated special stay at the big hotel and pay more. This hotel is not for the super rich who want wine service to their rooms but it is for people who want to go around the island during the day and go shopping at night in the waikiki area and then come back to nice comfortable beds and friendly nice staff. Some people ask for Kids activities inside a hotel. Why do you want to kid activities inside a hotel when you are on vacation in Hawaii??????????This hotel is across from the Hilton and you can just walk your kids over there and see all the Koi fish and just walk down the beach.

Hotel look and amenities were basic, as the way a small hotel is.

The nice part is that it offers the following:
1) Complementary Coffee and water in the morning
2) Complementary in-room internet
3) Complementary computer with internet and free printer at front desk
4) Probably lowest price parking in Waikiki-- $15/day
5) Bus stop right in front of hotel. Ala Moana mall is about 10 minutes walk away, and National and Enterprise rental cars are just next door.
6) Front Desk personnels were attentive to my requests.

And for about $100 (tax included), what else can I ask for?!

Lots of airline employees stay here.

I had a very brief overnight stay in this hotel (overnight layover). The staff were friendly, the rooms clean. The bathroom is quite small, the main room is average or slightly bigger in size.
The rooms are basic, they do the job, this is not a hotel that you stay in if you want your hotel to be part of the vacation.
The best thing I found about this hotel is that it is very quiet. I was beginning to think that street noise and Waikiki went hand in hand but the rooms at the back of this hotel (facing away from Ala Moana Blvd) are actually very quiet which suited me perfectly.
To be perfectly honest, I wouldn’t stay here again except for another overnight connection, however there is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to stay in Waikiki and still be able to sleep without interruptions from the street noise, that is one thing this hotel has going for it compared to most Waikiki hotels.

I'm so glad you had a great sleep at our hotel. By being back off of the main boulevard from the other hotels, we are definitely quieter, and our backside, which faces the mountains, is even quieter than that. I am glad you liked our location and hope to see you again. Thank you for your kind comments and for staying with us. We appreciate your business!

Maybe the next time you stay with us you might have a chance to check out the local restaurants in our area, as well as the shopping, beaches, and ocean activities. We have lots to offer and everything is just a few minutes from our doorstep!

Our room on the 12th floor was spotlessly clean and the staff were very helpful. We had a 7PM flight and wanted a late check out so we could hit the beach in the morning, come back and shower before checking out. Even though our check out day was the day before the pro bowl and they were fully booked they allowed us a late checkout at 1PM. The hotel is a short walk from Waikiki Beach, restaurants and shops

we stayed for 4 nights and the hotel is ok , A little far from the main attractions.
However, we found a local restaurant(I think the name is aloha coffee house) close to the hotel and the food is delicious and price is reasonable. A lot of tourists said that Honolulu is expensive. In this case, we are lucky.
It takes about 1/2 hr to walk to main beach Waikiki. But you can use the beach at hilton village

I believe the "Coffee House" you referred to is the "Wailana Coffee House". It is located about a half block from us and is opened 24 hours per day. A nice amenity to have close by. There are also a wide variety of restaurants in our area that cover everything from coffee shop to fine dining, making our location just right. Shopping at Ala Moana Shopping Center is just a 10 minute walk or you can catch TheBus, right in front of our hotel. Many visitors have found our location to be very convenient and I hope you will come and visit us again. Thanks for staying with us and also for your comments. They are both very much appreciated and valued!

We stayed at this hotel at the end of our two week vacation to Hawai'i. It was nice to have air conditioning and a king sized bed. But there was no continental breakfast and no wireless internet. Only pretty awful coffee in the morning and a hook up cable on the desk (which means no relaxing in bed with the laptop or iPad). Other than that, it was a roof over our heads.
