The Holiday Inn is located just a few blocks from Waikiki; 10-15 minute walk. The rooms are REALLY small. There are noisy air conditioners in each window, adjacent to the bed. Bring ear plugs. It was so hot we had to have the AC on but it was blowing across the top of the bed. We hung towels on the AC to break the draft. The room was clean and the bedding comfortable. If you needed to use ‘the loo’ st night, as soon as you turned on the light, the very loud bathroom fan automatically came on. Very noisy. Hot water was non-existent. We reported the water issue every day. The breakfast area was excellent. Great selection and friendly staff. The breakfast area was large, clean and bright with an area outside with small tables. Staff there were helpful. As long as you understand what to expect, you won’t be disappointed. There’s pro’s and definitely con’s to this property.

Hotel's Favorite
I truly enjoyed my stay at this property in March 2021. The hotel experience was great and it was walking distance to the beach, malls, restaurants, and parks. It was also very close to the pick-up spots of our tours (literally across the street). Rooms are quiet, and very comfortable. COVID measures are strictly followed throughout the property and everything is super clean. I also want to mention the people that made our stay special. Everyone at this property is super nice and they go above and beyond to make you feel valued. I wish I could remember everyone's names, because they all deserve to be mentioned, but I want to give a shout out to Gladys at the Front Desk; to the best concierges in Honolulu, Matt and Ross, and to the super-friendly and extremely efficient security officer Page, who answered many of my questions and helped me a lot! I would definitely stay here again!

Great family holiday. The view is amazing, it was so nice to wake up every morning to see the ocean. The staff are very friendly. It was great to have breakfast included every morning. The pool area was spacious and there were lots of chairs available to relax. All of the activities were a bonus with teenage kids. Easy to get around from here. Thank you for a great holiday.

First the positive. The employees of this hotel are so nice and very helpful. I cannot say one negative about the staff. The beds are super comfortable and the bathroom seems to have been updated. The air conditioner works really well. Our view of the ocean from our room was fantastic. We were able to see the Friday night fireworks perfectly. The free morning breakfast buffet was decent with lots of different juices. The problem is the hotel. It’s located in an ok spot, but the area around it looks very run down. The elevators are very tiny and old. You need to wait a long time to get into your room. The room was so small, it basically had room for a bed. The closet was about 6 inches wide and no room for luggage. The bathroom was almost as tiny as a cruise ship bathroom. The rooms are so close together, you can hear doors shutting all day/night long. Even though our view was excellent, there was no patio to enjoy it. The parking is extremely small and they do not guarantee you a spot if it gets busy. Also we paid more for one night here because of the high parking rates and resort fees. Needless to say, we found a much nicer hotel for the rest of our visit.

We stayed here for two nights recently. The hotel was located about .5 mile from the beach, so we walked there in the mornings before breakfast. The breakfast was amazing. They had everything you could imagine, and multiple stations for each (multiple pancake makers, a couple of places you could get your eggs and meat, etc.). There were at least 40 or so seats in the restaurant so finding a place to sit with your breakfast was no problem, and the gentlemen taking the breakfast tickets at the door (I assume so people don't just walk in off the street for breakfast) were super friendly. The room was fine, although the elevators were a bit slow. The fifth floor had a pool, cabanas, mini golf, etc. but unfortunately it closed at 7:00 each night so we only had a few minutes each day to take advantage of it. If we were coming back to Honolulu, we would stay here again.

Yes, the rooms are tiny. But this is an island with limited space. The view is fantastic. I’m not sure why but check in is usually slow here. I watched a lot of check ins and a line always formed and took a bit to work through it because each check in took time. It is about a half a mile walk down to the beach. I didn’t mind all the walking but some people do. It was very close to shopping in my opinion. All of this was fine considering it is a budget-ish hotel. But I absolutely CANNOT accept their elevators issues. They have 3 elevators for floors 1-25 and another set for everything above 25. These elevators are tiny and poorly ventilated. They take forever. I am not kidding when I say… add another 10-20 min to your commute for the elevators especially if your room is above fhe 25th floor. One of the elevators for this side was down which didn’t help matters, but it would have still been slow with it due to the size of each car. Also, there is no service elevator so the staff is using these elevators too. I can’t even imagine their frustration! I saw this same elevator was down in May on another review. If I had to guess- it was never fixed between then and now. I never saw anyone working on it. Since they’re tiny and not ventilated well.. you will sweat. A lot. I would not stay here again based solely on the elevator situation.

This hotel is centrally located, about a 10 minute walk to the beach and 15 minute walk to where all the shops and restaurants are located in Waikiki. The beds were comfortable, the free breakfast was pretty good. You can also take it to go which is really convenient. The hotel was not bad. Check in was pretty quick. Didn’t really engage with any of the staff .The only thing I didn’t like was the size of the room. It was really small. This is a budget hotel. Its ok. I wouldn’t stay here if you were on your honeymoon or first time in Hawaii.

First of all: I like dogs. But not everywhere. For me that’s a “no go” that the hotel does not go with unspoken or dedicated rules: I’m sure okay when the hotel eather allows to have your dog with you - but it’s not okay for me to have the dog with you ON the beach CHAIR or on pool deck as well, I think. It’s not an assistance dog. Thinking about whether a dog was already here on my lounger. There is pool staff without any reaction of this. It’s kind of disgusting.
