We stayed at the Ilikai on the 14th September 2012. The room was exactly as described. Older style but renovated and fresh inside. The kitchen was ample for our needs and the fridge was certainly large enough. Cooling was adequite but the room we were in, Room 2012, was next to some ventilator shaft which was quite noisy. We stayed there for 10 nights and got "used" to the noise by the time we left. It isn't a relection of what the other rooms are like at all.
The bathroom was clean and we were amazed to find a toilet plunger in the corner. We wondered why, until... the toilet flooded over and over. It was quite disgusting to say the least. I have never seen a plunger in a room before and management said that we must've put something in that we shouldn't have. I can assure you that we didn't (other than the obvious) and I do believe it must be a common problem so to have a plunger in the first place. Luckily it only happened once.
Would I stay there again? Probably not in the same room (the noise issue). Probably not at the Ilikai as I would like to try other resorts a little closer to the centre of Honolulu. For the price and the accomodation, I recommend it and hope you don't have plumbing issues.
The Motel is truly grand and has a 5 star feel about it. The staff are lovely and helpful. It is close to many restaurants and has public transport right in front.
