This hotel is close to the one of the main boulevards and has some weird windows which cannot be closed, you hear all the noise so it seems like if you slept in the middle of the street. Around 5 in the morning you would here the camions collecting rubbish and making strong noises. So if you want to relax... More

The Holiday Surf Hotel has a main building, but it also has an annex at 2231 Ala Wai, and I was at the Annex, so that is all I can write about. The Good - it was big, clean, and fairly close to the main streets of Waikiki. Also, from the lanai, I had a partial view of Ala Wai... More

Hellish noise, right in front of Ala Wai Blvd, windows do not close. Our room was dirty when we arrived at 11pm. We had to sleep on someone else's dirty sheets and use the dirty bathroom. Absolutely disgusting, but no other alternative so late at night and jet-lagged. They also charged my credit card 2 months before our arrival for... More

In September this should be my first time to Hawaii. I have sent an email to the hotel with some clarification and I did not had any reply back regarding the night charge of $33. Was it for each night or besides the 13.96% Tax? When I made the booking it gave me an amount of $480 (approx) than it... More

Though we stayed in 2013, I have only just joined TripAdvisor so am reviewing retrospectively. In our fifth month of backpacking, Hawaii’ was out first port of call in the US and it welcomed us with open arms. By far my favourite place on the entire planet, I feel in love as soon as we landed. Carmen and the other... More

"if there is anything we can do to make your arrival easier, please let us know. Please send us an email." - excerpt from the confirmation email. However, staff never responded after shooting them several emails, and when calling, staff was rather unfriendly and not very accommodating. There are better options in this price range in Honolulu. Don't bother booking... More

I gave this hotel 2 stars instead of one after they upgraded my room after I collided with old sinks stored on the floor unssable in the parking garage. Of course there was a sign saying park at your own risk. Written on the floor where you couldn't see it was writing saying "compact car only" The hotel was advertised... More

We were allowed to check in early and Queenie the front desk clerk had a hard time finding the booking was prepaid. (we had actually paid in March) She searched and made a few phone calls and resolved the issues as well as apologized for the miscommunication as the agency we booked through was not supposed to collect the money....
