Professional and helpful staff, clean rooms, and great welcome to Hawaii. Only 2 elevators so this caused a bit of a wait at prime times. And I stayed on the third floor which allows for a large balcony (part of the roof). I could have stayed at this hotel for weeks and been happy with he proximity to the ocean,... More

Clarkey - thank you so much I have so many amazing staff and glad you had the opportunity to interact when staying with us. Location - now right next door to the International Market Place (opens tomorrow) and on the Makai (ocean) side of Kuhio one block back from Waikiki Beach really can't get any better as a value proposition...

When Hawaii's first motel (Moana Surfrider est 1901) and the Sheraton are nearby you know you are in the right spot. Close to Waikiki beach, Honolulu Zoo, Diamond Head and heaps of retail. Also offered unlimited use of the Pink line bus system which gets you to Ala Moana Shopping Centre, Walmart and Ross's Discount Clothing Outlet. Includes a pool... More

Thank you Judith LOL, yes, perhaps in 1901 the Moana Hotel opened Hawaiian hospitality to visitors of Waikiki. I expect most visitors now recall the more recent restoration of early grandeur in 1989. For OHANA Waikiki East by Outrigger, this year celebrates 69 years of Kelley family hospitality in Hawaii and we proudly reflect on our heritage and the spirit... More

Very central location, easy walk to Waikiki beach and shopping area. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful with enquirers. Plenty of eateries within 5 minute walk of hotel. Hotel provides free trolley ticket so you are able to travel to Ala Moana Shopping centre very easily.

Could not fault the hotel. The room was very good, the staff were very friendly and helpful, which made our stay terrific. Would definitely stay there again. Close to everything and free use of the shuttle bus made it easy to get around and see more of Waikiki.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom deluxe suite on the 18th floor. It has two double beds and a large, comfy fold out sofa in the lounge area.

Staff were helpful and friendly. Great location to the shops, beach and a great market across the road. There is a supermarket close by. Our room had a lovely view to the sea , you need to be above level 16 for views. There pool was lovely to swim in. Good stay if you are a family.

The hotel was quite old, but it's very close to Waikiki beach. Staff were friendly, the room was clean, has strong AC. We stayed at higher floor room so it was very quiet, which was nice.

Great service and help from front desk, especially Angie. Good location, fine value for a place not right on the beach. Not fancy, but pleasant. Would stay there again. I chose this place because of the swimming pool -- other hotels in this price category did not have one.
