My partner and I sporadically planned a trip to Oahu for mid-May as our first getaway since the beginning of Covid. Like many, we were overwhelmed with the idea of where to stay in Waikiki. There are a lot of options to filter through which can definitely be daunting. The main thing we were looking for in a hotel was somewhere quiet and at a good price. This brought us to looking at the Coconut and after returning from our 9 day stay, I can say we made an excellent choice. When we booked, we asked that we get a quiet room with AC. We also asked and confirmed that their beds are firm as the idea of sleeping on a squishy bed for 9 days was a scary thought. We were given room 1010 on the top floor. This was an excellent room for us. It is pretty isolated from any noise. It's away from the elevators and there are no other rooms beside or across from it meaning there's no noisy neighbours. The room faced the building next to the Coconut on Lewers which means there was no view of any type other than the Lanais of the other building but this was OK for us as a trade off as we slept like babies 8-9 hours each night with no issue or noise. We didn't even notice really any street level noise at all. We found that this room was perfect for us because we don't need a room with a view (they do have those, though), it was quiet, and it had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the location of the hotel as well. It was a few blocks from the beach which meant it was away from all of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki for the most part. The location also made it easy for getting in and out with our rental car at the beginning and end of each day. While it may of been nice to stay at a beachside hotel, the extra cost and noise definitely wouldn't have been worth it. We're not people that stay at the hotel all day, every day. If we were then a resort makes more sense, but we were always out and about and the Coconut gave us the perfect place to return to at the end of a long day out exploring Waikiki and Oahu. We highly recommend the Coconut if you're a traveller like us. We'll definitely be back on our next visit!…
We attended a wedding at Kailua Ranch and had to make a last minute reservation after our previously booked lodging were canceled by the owners. We were wary but the reviews seemed good. My expectations were pleasantly exceeded. From the welcoming check in to the excellent room cleaning/tiding service to the comfortable beds, our stay was delightful. Waking up to a breathtaking view was a clincher as my pictures portray. Walking distance from transportation, highly recommend trolleys to get a good understanding of the island, to a bustling shopping experience along with beach access. We literally walked everywhere, getting our steps in, enjoying the safety of the area, then retreating to our hideaway. Will definitely recommend.
I love the location of the hotel as it is right across the street from a nice running path. It is also a lot quieter than the hotels down by the beach. It is a short stroll to the beach (less than 15 minutes), while also being situated near many restaurants and shops.
My wife and I check in on 5/9 to 5/15. We have stay at Coconut before back on February 2021. So we have come to expect first class stay and customer services. Our first shout out goes to Chenoa! She was very welcoming, professional and even offer some complimentary discounts. My second shout out goes to Robert Jr. who works the Valet. He always smiling, brings the car out fast and take great pride in his job. Even towards the end of our stay, we were still wow by Alfredo. Who was quick, responsive and accommodating with fixing a pricing error on our bills. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.
I originally booked a hotel that did not have a 24/7 front desk only to realize it probably wasn't a good idea since I had a very early morning flight with no place to wait for my ride (60 year old solo female traveler). The Coconut Waikiki Hotel is a cute hotel that is walking distance to many dining places, tour activity pick up locations, and the beach. The room was updated, clean and had a mini kitchen that included a small microwave, mini fridge, plates, silverware and a sink. The room overlooked the canal. It was a little noisy from the traffic but not bad at night. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe at the hotel and walking around the area. Would definitely stay there again if on Oahu.
We stayed at the Executive Suite on the 2nd floor, facing Lewers Street. I thought maybe it would be noisy but it was quiet and peaceful. The location of the hotel is great, it's a 10-15 min easy walk to all the main spots in Waikiki, with the advantage of being further away from all the crowds, allowing you to have a nice quiet time to rest. Thanks to the microwave and fridge in the room, you can easily store and warm any food which you can enjoy on the lanai, desk or in front of the TV. There are plenty of food options nearby. Everything in the room was clean and functioning. The only thing that was off for me were the pillows. They were all absurdly high so I just slept without them, however, I didn't ask the staff for different pillows so I don't know if they could have given me other options.…
Room was as described, beds were comfortable, and keeping in mind it is a very reasonably priced hotel it was just what we expected. Walls and bathroom showing signs of age of hotel but it was still very clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. After check out at noon, they let us keep our bags in a holding area until we left for the airport around 6pm. After terrific shopping down by the water for a few hrs and lunch we still had a couple hrs before our Uber so we found a comfortable, cozy spot on the patio at the other end from the pool to relax. Very enjoyable stay, would return.
We stayed at the Coconut Hotel for 4 nights. It was comfortable and clean. We loved sitting on our lanai and watching outriggers practicing on the canal. We rode public busses, which were easy to pick up at the corner by the ABC store.
Stayed here March/April for 18 nights. Good value. Complimentary breakfast. Quiet location on Ala Wai Canal. Problem with making local telephone calls but the Manager Jeffrey was attentive and helpful.
I spent 5 days here over Easter 2022, and have to say this is one of the friendliest, best value hotels I've stayed in. I'm normally a brand-hotel kind of girl but over Easter the prices at the big chains were silly and a friend recommended the Coconut Hotel. So, first things first, some things are a little dated but everything worked and was very clean so no problem at all. The bed was very comfortable and the room came equipped with a kitchenette; fridge (under counter sized, not mini-hotel type), sink, microwave and best of all, if like me you're British, a kettle. Yes, a proper kettle! It's a small thing but in 20 years of visiting the US this is the only hotel room I've found one in. Sitting on the balcony, watching the sun rise with a decent cup of tea was magic 😂 The pool area is compact but there are plenty of tables and comfy seating and the pool was nicely heated. Coffee is available in the lobby, and it was decent coffee too. They also had a nice selection of Tazo teas to choose from. The lobby area has indoor and outdoor seating and is a nice place to chill. The hotel is an easy two block walk from the beach, and at the end of the street on Kuhio Ave there's a bus stop so if you've not hired a car you can easily get out and about. The ABC on the corner sells the HOLO bus card, $2 for the card plus $5.50 for a day travel pass. If you usually stay at chain hotels I'd definitely recommend giving the Coconut Hotel a go, choose a room with a mountain view and enjoy watching the sun come up over the city and mountains. I'm already planning my next trip to Hawaii and will be staying here again.…
