“a place of rest and romance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

While in Hawaii,Me and my wife's family stayed at the Pacific Beach hotel. We were greeted with great service and the breakfast food buffet(off the chain). We don't eat pork as meats for breakfast but was given a substitute with turkey bacon and patties, every morning we were there at the hotel.It was nice knowing that people can respect what you request and see the result of it. I enjoyed the large live fish aquarium inside the resturant. The view of the ocean and beach was breathtaking. Enjoyed my six days at the hotel and the sun rising and setting on the 11th floor of the hotel.The view was romantic and astonishing.It was nice being away with my wife,alone without our children, spending some quality rest and time with each other. We are planning to go again in 2013! Aloha!

Nice Hotel but sometimes a little bit to dirty. The rooms werent cleaned as they should be.

But the staff und service was friendly and we used the hotel only for sleeping so it was ok.

Cant say anything about the restaurant because we ate in other restaurants at Waikiki.

We stayed here as a stop over before flying to Maui. It is definitely a Tour Group stop-over. The restaurant with huge live fish tank & mermaids(at 5pm) was over-run with tour groups so we did not eat here. There is a guest laundry on the 4th floor also a cold pool & hot spa. This hotel is right over the road from the beach which is a huge plus also there is a ABC store in the foyer. We walked to Starbucks for tea & coffee but there is a coffee maker in room. Shower over bath & toilet bathroom area is very small.

The place is decent, clean, and well-run. Its location is fantastic, it is right on the beach and close to shopping, the zoo, and other fun stuff. Another plus is that there is much to do within easy walking distance which is great for seniors and families with kids.

Room Tip: ASk for an upper floor room with a view of the water and/or Diamond Head.

We stayed in this Hotel 3 years ago. I found it ok last time, but noticed a big improvement from our last stay. The rooms seemed fresher and cleaner, not that they were bad last time. The breakfast buffet has also improved greatly.

We didnt think twice about coming back here and would not think twice about it the next time we stay in Waikiki.

Great position, good rooms, great price and great customer service.

Room Tip: Go to get the Oceanfront room, fantastic views!

Our family spent 3 nights at the Pacific Beach hotel during the 3rd week of September after spending 3 prior nights in Turtle Bay North Shore.

Overall we had a pleasant stay at this place. The location is excellent being just about across the street from Waikiki beach, and the price was reasonable for Waikiki.

Our arrangement included coupons for breakfast buffets which turn out to be a big time savers and allow us to start the day with a full tummy. The buffet had both western breakfast items (eggs, sausages, pancakes, french toast, potatoes, yogurt, cereals, fresh cut island fruits, large varieties of pastries... too much to name) and a generous Japanese breakfast spread (fried rice, brown rice, porridge, grilled fish, cooked vegetables, soups, numerous condiments, salad bar... too much to name). On top of that, you get to sit next to a 2 story high aquarium with beautiful fishes & stingrays... We loved it!

The room accommodation was very clean and came with good beddings, however decor was dated. We were on the 17th floor with a partial view of the Ocean. I consider the room setting to be similar to a Comfort Inn level, which fitted us fine. There was an additional $20/day parking fee (common in Waikiki), which will add up the bill. For the breakfast buffet, cleanliness, location & proximity to the beach, I think this hotel has very good value.
