Once again, my daughter and I had a wonderful time at this hotel! The staff are so pleasant and helpful! The property and the rooms are old but clean! We like the five minute walk to the beach and all the amenities close to the property! Major renovations are taking place in 2017 to update according to staff. This hotel...

Great location. A very basic accommodation for those on a budget and only need a room to sleep. The rooms are a bit tired but everything is there and in working order. The building will be renovated this year and I can only hope the tariff stays as it is. Why pay $$$ for the luxury suite in a mega...

Hawaii's hidden secret. This older hotel is quite, clean, AC cold, easy to the beach, easy to great restaurants. Most don't know about unless a friend tells you. Prices are super saver. Staff is on site, great service. You can UPS FedEx anything you want there for your stay. Doing this prevents airline check baggage fees. We use Go Go...

To set your expectations, this place is a budget hotel. It is fairly clean, though outdated. And, I would've preferred less ants. The location is excellent in the heart of Waikiki. Customer service is friendly.

Get a Trip Advisor seal of excellence? Yes, it has been ,3 years but it hard to imagine this run down property meeting that standard. The only thing going for it Is location near all the pricey Waikiki hotels, shops and the beach. Be advised, the room is only serviced once every 7 days and you need to ask for...

If you are the type of person that would just like a good place to crash while you're in Waikiki this is perfect. Clean, comfortable, convenient ,pleasant staff, and reasonably priced and fair cancellations policy. I would definitely be a return client. Recommended but not for everyone.

I stayed 5 nights at the Waikiki Prince. It was a 15 min ride from HNL airport via SpeedyShuttle which I would not use again, they missed my return pick up. The hotel was close to the beach and downtown. However, the surroundings of the hotel were not so good. Outside by balcony was a noisy car rental lot and...

Waikiki Prince was impressive. Our room was clean, very clean. Friendly and helpful staff, affordable, they provided beach towels, chairs and other things we did not take advantage of.. Free 10% Kona coffee every day, which was better than 100% Kona we purchased at the store. Everything we needed from a hotel in Waikiki. Will be coming back soon. Located...

Well maintained, central location, close to the beach. Windows: partly shutters that willing close. Makes the place airy, but you will hear air condition noise from surrounding buildings and street noise.
