Traveling alone, I didn't want to pay huge bucks for a hotel, and Aqua Aloha Surf was easily the least expensive from several online searches I conducted, so I booked it skeptically... but I couldn't have been more pleased! I felt the room was very well maintained, comfortable,

I guess you get what you paid for but the Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki didn’t really meet our expectations. We booked a “Moderate” room for 7 nights and it was absolutely tiny. No room even for a chair although management did provide one when we asked. The whole facility is very

Hi Jackie, Sorry I really donno . We did our own tours. There are bus stops that tells you the time of pick up for particular destinations. The reception staff should be able to assist you.

What room (superior) has a good view of the water?
The upper floors will have a partial view of the ocean, and maybe some closer to the ocean will have a better view that others, but you have to understand that the hotel is about three blocks from the beach. There was a nice view of the Ala Wai canal from our room though.

Yes, it is. It cost me $1.25 to wash and $1.25 to dry. The sign says access between 5am-10pm however I gained entry into the laundry after 10pm once the receptionist gave me the code

"go somewhere else"
"Get rooms facing the side street, It helps avoid traffic on the roads that face the Canal."
"Go to higher floors for best views of Honolulu City"
"It was more the noise from the street rather than from the hotel itself"
"If you have the money stay somewhere else."
