I have to say I was blown away by this hotel and will gladly return in the future. All we wanted was a cheap hotel close to the beach - the Waikiki Grand delivered on that and more. We got a good deal for booking on Black Friday, and Waikiki Beach is about a 2 minute walk from the front... More

Stayed here fro the 26th-July 4th. This hotel is close to so much shopping and restaurants. You can't go wrong with location! The rooms are small, so be prepared. During checkout they tried to charge us a $90 fee for cleaning! We refused the maid service the one time she did come by. The hotel said it was a new... More

Front desk Lady named Roxy was awesome and took care of me. This is the 1st time staying here and felt as though we've known each other for many years although we only met tonight. She treats everyone the same tourist and locals alike because I witnessed it for myself upon check in tonight. Once again Kudos to Roxy you... More

We only stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip before heading off to Maui. We wanted something close to Waikiki with easy access to the shops/restaurants. The location was great! It was a 15 second walk to the beach and the room was tiny but very clean. The only issue is we called ahead of time... More

The first room given to me was average, and was later upgraded when I extended my stay. The hotel is a bit old, but the roof deck has a perfect view of the Diamond Head State Monument. It is easy for a solo traveler to walk from the hotel to Diamond Head and back.

This is a privately owned property available for rent on VRBO or HomeAway. This large studio condo has been refurbished and renovated. It came on the market only in January of 2016. This space is owner operated by Brenda who was a delight to work with. Our stay was two weeks long and we enjoyed every minuet of it! The... More

Don't expect more than an average hotel room. The room is dated and in need of renovations. But the location is perfect. Steps from Waikiki beach, across the street from the Honolulu Zoo, walking distance to the Aquarium and Waikiki shops, Kapahulu eating area and Waikiki activities. We only need a place to sleep and it was good enough. Park... More

I'm a local resident born and raised, lived in SF Bay Area for 15yrs before moving back. I'm writing this to thank Roxy, one of the most friendliest concierge persons I know.
