“My Review of the Best Western Plaza Hotel in Honolulu, HI”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

I personally thought that my stay at the hotel was pretty fair. Everything was pretty average as most hotels. The things that I disliked were the constant noise being that it is directly next to the highway. It is really not in the best location for a hotel and also the parking garage is very prone for accidents because it is entirely to small to park. I was constantly having to dodge accidents because everyone does not think to drive a decent speed in a parking garage. The thing that I did enjoy most was the cafe' and the entire staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. My cleaning service especially was great. Her name was Madeline and she was very polite. She cleaned my room each day with fresh new towels, changing my sheets, and refreshing the room with a very delightful scent. In all my stay was pretty comfortable and I enjoyed everything thanks to the staff.

Room Tip: Rooms that are farther away from the highway are more comfortable.

I booked this hotel on my way to American Samoa. It is close to the airport and convenient for those traveling alone. I became ill on my trip & staff helped me locate an urgent care just around the corner from the hotel, along with the pharmacy where I picked up meds. Hotel staff was helpful & did their best to make me comfortable as I continued my flight the following day. The hotel was clean & comfortable...all you need if you are traveling long flights & want a decent place to stay.

We had an overnight layover in Honolulu and only needed a place to rest our heads. The hotel is very close to the airport (by the free hotel shuttle took only 5-7mins) which is exactly what we needed. The hotel could use a bit of updating but the bed was comfortable and along with the bathroom, were clean. We had a deal for free breakfast the following morning which was plenty! We had a choice of eggs,meat,toast,hash browns and unlimited coffee. Plus the waitstaff was pleasant. Would stay here again if there were similar circumstances.

The airport was near by and one of only a few hotels that allow pets. Unfortunately the highway is right over the hotel so it's loud and hard to enter except in a roundabout way. No breakfast as advertised on website included with some reservations. Rooms were dated and in bad need of referbishment. Service was ok, but not out of this world. Parking fee too each night.

Aloha Scott S,

Thank you for your most recent stay at Best Western the Plaza Hotel. Our staff and management are appreciative of your choice to stay with us.

Our close proximity to the airport is one of our assests and provides convenience to those looking for a hotel for a quick stopover. Our hotel does offer quieter rooms in the hotel and so we invite you back to experience one of these rooms. The breakfast you are referring to is a breakfast package you will need to reserve and is available on the website.

We thank you again for your decision to stay with us and we are hopeful to welcome you back in the future.

Mahalo,
Brent Kitsu

I really enjoyed my stay at the Best Western - Plaza. The parking was so conveniently located, the rooms are really big and the service was incredible. It also was super to have a store within the building. The location of the hotel was also convenient and close to the airport and the medical center I was scheduled to have surgery in. Loved it.

Dried pee behind the toilet, hair on the toilet and in the tub, used coffee filters, garbage and kleenex in the ice box. We had clorox wipes to clean it ourselves and staff apologized, but definately won't stay here again. We normally really like the Best Western and stay at them all the time... the actual room, staff and breakfast were otherwise great... but the bathroom was gross enough to take Best Western off our list for future stays.

I stayed at The Plaza twice recently - first on my way across the dateline, second on the way back for several days. The hotel is close to the international airport & runs 24-hour shuttle service to & from the airport. The rooms are quite nice & the cleaning staff takes pride in their work. Everyone at the hotel was pleasant & the on-site restaurant is adequate. There is also a well-stocked variety store / gift shop near the lobby. All the rooms have free wifi & flat-screen TV.

Major highways run adjacent to the hotel & there is some traffic noise but it wasn't a bother to me. The hotel is quite a distance from the "Hotel Zone" & most of the major attractions of Honolulu but the lower cost of The Plaza makes up for this. Buses & taxis are available at curbside & will take you anywhere you like on the island. There is a car rental next to the hotel but I saw no reason to rent a car while here.

Room Tip: Rooms on east side of the hotel have less traffic noise;
