“Just Average....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stayed here for 6 days in a 2 bedroom with kitchenette. The hotel is old and so as the furniture, beddings, towels, tv, air condition, etc. Our room was at the end of the U shaped structure building and so our windows at the bedroom facing a street and the kitchen/living room faced another street and so theres a lot of noise especially that windows were fitted with jalousies. One time they were cleaning or changing the water at the koi pond that they were using a water pump just imagine the noise of that for like 2-3 hours..However, you get what you paid for considering the price of the room here compared to the 4 star hotels which is 2 to 3 times higher. For just basic clean room to go back to from all day adventure on the island was good enough, and for the next vacation, definitely a different hotel!

we stayed at Pagoda Hotel for two years in a row. its an older hotel and renovations in progress. We were actuallymthee for medical reasons. Staff very accomodating and service is great. last year in April of 2012, i made reservations for our stay and upon arrival we were greeted by hotel staff. I would like to,thank the front desk manager for upgrading our room from a studio to a one bedroom with kitchenette. i will be back again this year and i would like to rent the same one bedroom with kitchenette.

Me and my family picked this hotel cause it looked great on the website and it was affordable... When we got here it looked nice at first and than we got to our hotel room... It smelled horrible. We couldnt even walk on the floor without shoes cause the floor was so gross. The bathroom was small and had ants in it. When we took a shower and the tub was clogged and wouldn't drain. Found a cockroach in our room. And to top it all off people were partying around us and were loud all night.. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed at the Pagoda for three nights.It is an older hotel and renovations are in progress in various places. Everything in our room was clean and comfortable. Having a fridge and microwave was very convenient for us.We were able to buy food at the Walmart just around the corner from the hotel. The Ala Moana mall and beach/ park are within walking distance. Staff are very friendly and make guests feel welcome. The rate for a room with kitchenette was about one hundred dollars, which is a great deal for Honolulu.

The Pagoda is a nice hotel in a great location. If you want to get away from the crowded Waikiki streets, stay here. Or room on the tenth floor was very clean, didn't smell and everything worked. The service is great, as well. You are always greeted by the staff. You are close to all of the major bus stops and only a fifteen minute walk from Waikiki. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. We were there for two weeks.

We stayed in the one bedroom with kitchenette. The room was huge, and the price was good. In order for that to happen, pretty much everything else gets compromised. Furniture is crappy, there is cracked, stained linoleum in the bathroom, the towels are thin and scratchy, the corridor smelled funny, etc. However, if what you want is an clean enough economical place to stay with room for a bunch of people, then this fits the bill.

The restaurant was fun with the gardens and koi. The food is OK quality but kind of expensive. Room service was one of the extras I missed -- with time differences and jet lag it would have been very nice to get a meal or two delivered.

I usually stay in nicer hotels and found the compromises a bit frustrating. But hey, it's a perfectly fair value for the price, and made an expensive vacation closer to affordable. Those nicer hotels are going to be two or three times the cost of this place. If you understand what you're getting into and value economy and space, it's a good choice.

This is the old,old hotel for locals to stay. There are renovations ongoing and it is convenient to Ala Moana shopping center. The bus terminal is at the center so most of Oahu is at your finger tips. The resturant was closed for breakfast. This used to be a good morning treat and we disappointed .street noise is minimal and they do have a small pool on site. Rooms are minimal and have aged but ours was clean. Prices are moderate for Waikaki. I will stay again.
