We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Outrigger on the Beach, and had a recently renovated room that had a good partial view of the ocean. Check in was a bit strange, the guy on reception basically gave us his entire life story while we were checking in so it took about 20 mins rather than the standard couple of mins. Neither my partner nor I really said a word but it was very awkward. The room was very nice, the bed comfy etc and exactly what I would expect for the price and the star value. The pool is good, but not next to the beach and it misses the garden area that you see at the other hotels it is next to (sheraton, Royal Hawaiian etc.) Shorebird, the inhouse restaurant has a beautiful position right on the beach and a good vibe, but annoyingly you can't just sit and have a drink at one of the tables, even if you are a guest, until late as priority is given to diners, so you can't just have a drink and watch the sunset. I enjoyed our stay, but as the title of this review suggests, it was exactly what I expected for the price and was missing that 'something extra' that some hotels have. If heading back to Waikiki and looking in the same price range, I would probably pick the Royal Hawaiian or the Moana Surfrider which just seemed that bit more atmospheric.
