I booked this hotel once for a week through Expedia and due to flight cancellations I wasn't able to make it for the first night. Expedia was willing to move my reservation up one day, but the hotel refused to budge on scheduling. Instead of letting me move my 7 day reservation by one day and keeping my business, they... More

We stayed at the Ilima for six nights after returning from the week-long NCL four-island cruise. On the whole, we loved our suite (1101). I was surprised at how quiet it was (especially since I'm a light sleeper) despite being above a busy street and right next to the elevator. We had only two significant complaints. The first was that,... More

This hotel has the friendliest staff! The studio rooms are large and has all the conveniences you need for a small family on a short vacation.

I liked this place because of its location and the (free) parking space. They offer free WiFi even in the room and 1-800 numbers are to allowed without charge (good for oversea tourists with a calling card). I stayed only one night (first day after arrival) and everything was just fine. The room was clean and extremely spacious. The only... More

We had a large room. Location very handy and near bus lines. Could pick up breakfast items to keep in our kitchenette at nearby Food Pantry (urban grocery store with great produce) or the somewhat more expensive but ubiquitous ABC store. Nice pool for cooling off. I enjoyed a free lei making class that was offered once a week. Only... More

Stayed 10 days at the Ilima. The hotel is a little older but the room was big and the kitchen serviceable. It was clean enough to be healthy and sure, there were signs of wear and tear, but I've seen just as much in an over priced Las Vegas strip hotel. We were on the 12th floor, facing the Kuhio...

We stayed at the Ilima Hotel for 10 days. The room was unusually spacious with a large balcony and a kitchen, there is a proper bathtub in the bathroom. The beds were fantastic.
