“Great location, Great Staff and the list goes on....”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

The hotel is centrally located on Waikiki Beach. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. Free WiFi and free boarding passes printing. I recommend this hotel, the only con was the refrigerator did not get cold. The food at Jimmy Buffett's was delicious located in the hotel. Really enjoyed the Pool Deck which has a bar and food could be ordered. I would definitely stay here again, if they keep up the great work.

Room Tip: The 14th floor with Oceanview. OMG, the view of the beach was tranquil. Great for people watching.

A lovely hotel staffed by very friendly people at a great location. What more could I have asked for? My room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a great food court located just behind the hotel. It looks a bit dingy/dodgy but the food tasted great! Highly recommend the sushi place (be prepared to wait) and gyoza from the Hokkaido noodle place.

This Hotel is Centrally located and had everything we needed.
Nothing fancy but well priced and located.
Front desk staff could have been a bit more friendly, you almost felt that you were "imposing" on them when you ask them something , but not rude.
Tour desk was the opposite. They were friendly and gave you all the time in the world

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high up as possible due to noise on lover levels.

Aloha PhilF, thank you for staying with us and visiting Hawaii all the way from Sydney! We truly appreciate your business. I'm glad you agree that our hotel is very conveniently located and a good value.

Usually only give four stars even when a hotel does well. But this H.I. has a really good staff, plus received the best priority club "perks" of any hotel in the last few years. Quick check-in, quick check out. nice room with an "ocean view." I read many reviews before going. It would seem there are "good" rooms and "bad" rooms. Ours was the former. Fully remodeled and tastefully done. My wife and I paid for three nights and two more on points. The desk had already combined the two reservations before check-in--nice touch. Valets were quick and easy at both drop off and pick-up. I have stayed at H.I.'s for many years. This one is fairly typical, yet the staff and the location cause me give it high marks. If you stay at H.I. you should like this hotel. We did.

Room Tip: To have a better view of the ocean and the city stay in the higher floors. You have glass doors so b...

We booked our stay at the Holiday Inn as a friend was planning on staying there. We were disappointed after one night (last night). The room was just OK. It needed paint. The hallways were a bit dark, the elevator doors had a hard time closing, the toilet ran until we shook the handle, and one of the three lamps was not functioning, plus a loose hinge on the refrigerator door cover. Just plenty to give us a bad taste.

On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and very helpful on this, our first visit to Hawaii. The front desk even gave us options as to where else to stay. We moved across the street to the Outrigger and are delighted. A few more $, but well worth it.

Room Tip: Go across the street.

Although the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber hotel is not a beachfront hotel, it is less than a block away from the beach and it is right next door to the International Market-Place, Nice! In addition, this hotel located in the heart of the Waikiki shopping district on Kalakaua Avenue. Macy's Department store is attached to the hotel and the famous Jimmy Buffet's Beachcomber restaurant is also attached to the hotel building - very convenient. This Holiday Inn hotel does not have it's own restaurant but it does not need one because on the opposite side of the hotel's check-in counter is one of several entrances to the Jimmy Buffet's restaurant and there are many dining options all around this hotel.

The standard hotel room is more than adequate space - including a small balcony to view the Waikiki street scene and partial views of the ocean (between some tall buildings across the street). The room and bath were clean and reasonably quiet considering the hotel is right on one of Waikiki's main streets.

I would definitely come back to the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber on any return trips to Oahu.
