“Repeat visit at Waikiki Resort”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Waikiki Resort, booked it at a good price so for us it was good value. I would not spend 200$+ on this hotel however...

Room was clean, size was fine, although bathroom was absolutely tiny. But location is great, one block from the beach, and that's why we stay there. Service is good and check in was quick. Pool area is fine as well, they have added some nicer lounge chairs which is nice. Overall a good budget hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool seem to be quieter than those facing Diamondhead.

We were delighted to have you back again and were gratified that you enjoyed your stay. Although famous Waikiki Beach is just steps away, I see you noticed the subtle pool deck upgrade and glad you liked it. Hope to see you back again next winter. Mahalo nui loa.

The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. They were very patient with our many questions. Location of the hotel is a block from the beach, walking distance to restaurants,shops. Accommodation was clean and cleaning staff were very friendly also. I would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Waikiki Doubletree hotel. Booked the hotel at a really GREAT price...better than the team group rate. We stayed here mid December 2013, when my daughter's basketball team was invited to play in the Iolani basketball tournament. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel location was very convenient to 2 beaches, lots of shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again. Although we did not enjoy paying the $22 a day parking fee.

Mahalo for the favorable review of Waikiki Resort Hotel. We'll take the assumption that you stayed with us after having stayed at the Doubletree Waikiki. We're gratified that you felt good about your choice of stay which you credited to our convenient location and friendly service. Rest assured your unfavorable mention of the parking rate is one which we will be giving consideration to. Hopefully it doesn't stop you from choosing to stay with us again in the not-so-distant future. Again, mahalo.

I stayed at the Waikiki Resort recently, and I had a spectacular time!~

The room was very spacious and comfortable. It had bouncy, comfortable beds and pillows and sturdy tables. Also, in the bathroom there was a 50 inch flat screen TV. There were relaxing massagers and automatic curtains!!! One push of a button, and the drapes go up. Handy bed lights attached to your bed, so you can see things in bed at night.

Kind staff members! The bellboy was very obedient (in a good way). The receptionist was very patient, and she always listened to your requirements. Price was not expensive, not too cheap, but in the middle.

The resort invites you to a traditional luau, and immersed me into Hawaiian tradition. A wonderful, and interesting show of fire eating, and people playing with fire was presented. Waiters served scrumptious roasted pork, and bbq kebabs! (Best Hawaiian meal ever!) Also, for dessert we had lovely cooked pineapple and apples marinated in some sweet sauce.

I loved the fun swimming pool, and had a decorative floor! In addition to that, tanning chairs were placed near the edge of the pool, and towels were in a cabinet next to the chairs, for those who forgot their towels. Very convenient!

The resort had a mouth watering scent to it… The scent of fresh muffins in the oven… Heavenly interior for the rooms. I definitely recommend this resort to others!

After reading several of the reviews I was unsure if I had booked the best accomodation for my niece and myself. We arrived early and got our room allocated straight away at no extra cost.
Location was excellent and hotel staff where very helpful.
I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.
Keep up the great work !!!!

The hotel is located at a very convinient place, just one blodk from the Waikiki beach. You can walk to DFS. The trolley stations are just near by. i liked my stay at Waikiki resort. However, the hotel was a little old. The bathroom was too small. The air vent was not clean enough. I found it was full of dirty dust. Other than that, every thing was good. Especilly, people were very kind. I thank the concierge for her kindness.
One thing I want to say is that I found a group of homeless sleeping in the margin of the hotel lobby in the night. Probably, it was hard for the hotel to treat them properly. But it was unpleasant to see the homeless even at the hotel in addition to the streets.
For Koreans, a Korean restaurant named MeBBQ is at 5 min walking distance. Me BBQ offers very good Korean food (to go) at a very good price (just above 10 dollars).
Considering the accommodatin price, I would rate this hotel very good. If I emphasize the quality only, I would rate this hotel average.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts concerning your recent stay. Like many of our neighboring hotels, this hotel is over 40 years old. After 6 years however since the hotel's last room renovation, and on the heels of its recent lobby upgrade, we are excited about bringing further upgrades to the room and public areas in the coming year. Your mention of your "dirty" air vent and the homeless is much appreciated to which we are currently looking into. Again mahalo.
