The hotel itself is a little older than the others in Waikiki in the way it looks, the corridors, rooms. The place does not in any way reflect the staff. They went above and beyond for my boyfriend and I, every person I spoke to whether it be front desk staff, or housekeeping or even the electrician! Everyone was so... More

The Ewa doesn't have a pool, a exercise room, or any of the upgraded facilities, but it's the best hotel I've ever stayed at! I've traveled all over Europe and the US and have stayed at some extremely nice hotels, and some dumps. I came to Waikiki and had booked the Ewa through the internet. The rooms are exceptionally clean,... More

Great value at far end of waikiki, close to zoo, park and surf. Friendly staff. I'd recommend for a brief stay in waikiki. Will come again. No view and some street noise, parking can fill up at times.

This is the perfect place to stay when you want a Waikiki fix. Short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Clean rooms and wonderful staff at checking and checkout. A quite little hotel on a side street.

For a two night stay that cost close to $700, this place is a dive. The pictures on the web site are outstanding, however that's not what you get. Upon arrival the only stall that was available for parking was the handicap stall which for me was ok, since I am disabled. Check in was wonderful, Tracy at the front... More

Pros: Convenience to the beach. It's on the far side of Waikiki (near the Honolulu Zoo). Cons: Moderate rooms could use a microwave. Definitely an older hotel that could use some renovation. Location: Close to Waikiki beaches - about 2 short blocks. ABC Store and a bus stop are about a block away. Tourist restaurants are also within walking distance... More

The room was clean with 2 single beds and a day bed which is only 5'6" long. It took a couple of minutes of running the water to finally get it warm in the shower. The fridge did not work but did not complain as we did not use it. What annoyed me though was having to pay for the... More

If you're looking for value and cleanliness this place is for you. Nothing fancy but very clean. Could use some updates but for the money and location it fits the bill. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable. Kitchenette with all the things you need. Newer TVs, balconies. There's a parking garage, nice little courtyard out front. Waikiki... More

My girlfriend and I got a bad room, kind of dirty. Our room ( like many others) was completely different than which you can see on pictures... If you just want a room to sleep in Waikiki that's okay but I would not recommend it and would not come Back there...
