We stayed at the Pagoda in Honolulu June 2006, in a family room (2 bedrooms with kitchenette). The location is fine if you are willing to take The Bus to get around; it's a 5 minute walk to the nearest "The Bus" stop; and it's about a 30 minute walk to Waikiki Beach, slightly less to Ala Moana Beach Park. There is a parking fee if you have a car. The kitchen is great to have if you have a family and want to save some money on meals. That said, there were some problems, although they were not serious. The worst was the nightly noise level from the street outside (we stayed in the building called the Pagoda Terrace; it's possible other buildings are quieter). The A/C drowned some of the noise but not enough for restful sleep. The kitchen was minimally equipped...two pots, dishes and flatware for 4, one sharp knife, one cutting board, one small two burner stove, coffeemaker (and coffee), fridge, microwave; but plenty of small "sugar ants" to get into any food left on the counter. The unit was older and somewhat worn, but otherwise clean. However the front desk person was very brusque upon check in., enough that I would try to stay elsewhere next time. MAKE SURE you have the EXACT SAME credit card you used to make the reservation and first night's deposit, as they will not allow you to use a different card to pay for the rest of your visit. This policy is to prevent ID theft, but the logic escaped me as we had ample photo ID to prove who we were and the reservations were made in our names! (We wound up paying with traveller's checks and having the original deposit credited back to our card). There was a nearby WiFi network we could access but it was not the hotel's network, and it was not always on. There are two small pools but the one at our building was full of small children whenever it was open. All in all the value for the money (about $140 with tax per night) was good, for a family, but next time I'd see if we could find something else.
