“Friendly Service & Great Location”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We stayed in Waikiki for a few days before heading home, and everyone at the Waikiki Pearl was very friendly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and updated. We go some recommendations from Jamar on local restaurants, and we had a great meal thanks to him! The location is great, it is in walking distance to great shopping and the beach! And you can catch the trolley right down the street. The only tricky part is if you have a rental car, as parking is minimal. Overall it was a great experience.

Nice size rooms, easy walk to the beach at Wakiki, friendly staff. No frills, but very reasonable price. We paid $130/night for an upper floor room with a partial ocean view. $20/night extra if you have a car. Great deal for Wakiki.

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter and have some view.

It's been said but I will say it again, Jamar and staff are truly what makes this place such a great value. Parking can be an issue, but location is great, so once we secured a spot we left our rental there for the duration of our stay.

The hotel is in a great location. 5mins to the markets, 10mins to the beach.....perfect!!!
The rooms are a little run down but as a solo traveler they suited my needs, who stays in their room when you are in Hawaii anyway!
The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They make you feel very welcome, have tons of suggestions about things to do and are always very friendly, they really make this place feel comfortable.
I would recommend this hotel to people looking for somewhere close to everything but far enough away to get a good nights sleep.

Room Tip: Higher floors = less noise.......duh

Great location, great and very helpful staff, that made our short stay within Hawaii a pleasant stay. Its location is in the heart of all that is happening within Waikiki. We booked into a one room suit too which they upgraded us to a room with Balcony with a combined size that was larger than most one bedroom flats in the heart of Brisbane. Staff bent over backwards to make stay enjoyable. Only complaint would be the Legends Bar which is co-located at bottom floor, stayed open till all hours of morning and was always a very loud closing.

we stayed in room 1008, was a nice large room, clean with a view down to the front entrance. However it was very noisy from late night revelers, the nearby ladies of the night and the garbage men at 5 in the morning. I did see the receptionist give out earplugs to some of the guests.
The location was great, a 10 minute walk to the beach and close to the main street, shops and restaurants.
The computer at the reception area has internet however this very rarely works but there is free wi-fi in the reception area if you have your tablet,laptop, but it wont work in the room.
There is parking for guests at $20 a night and if no spaces available there is a car park close by that you are allowed to park in, just ask reception.
Beach towels are available at reception so don't bring the towels in your hotel room.
I did notice that the towels in our room were not the cleanest so I did change them.
The hotel was clean and the fantastic staff really made it an enjoyable stay.
We were happy that we had our room until 6 pm on the day of check out as we had a late flight that night but they will keep your cases for you if you have to check out by 12 pm.
I would stay again but remember my ear plugs

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights in one of their spacious 3-bedroom suites on the top floor. It was like home away from home. It was very quiet on the upper floor. Our family stay included my 80-year old parents and my 13-year old twin daughters. So we enjoyed the apartment like residence having 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The beds are on the firm side which is the way I like it. The hotel was clean and although older, seemed safe. I'm guessing the hotel was remodelled within the last 3-4 years. The staff was extra helpful and friendly. Whenever we called for service, someone was there to help within minutes. The only complaint I have is the limited parking, but there is an overflow lot about 1 block away. We loved being able to walk through the international marketplace on our way to the beach (about 2 blocks away). The hotel is walking distance to everything in Waikiki. The hotel is already a good value and they gave us a 10% AAA discount. Note that there is no swimming pool at this hotel, but the beach is only a couple of blocks away.

Room Tip: This is a great hotel if you are looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom suite.
