hotel with NO bedbugs?

I've been looking at reviews of Honolulu hotels - we already bought flight tickets. I can't believe the list of hotels I've looked at with bedbug reports. At least a dozen in the last year or so. I'm glad I didn't book anything yet. I know this is a growing problem all over, but almost every hotel I was considering is on that list. I'm itching just looking at the reviews. Any places you'd suggest?

Please get over this nonsense! Dozens of trips to all the islands..hotels and condos..not a single bedbug! Geckos and wolf spiders..Yes! NO bedbugs! If you are concerned call the hotel!

I have been to Hawaii 13 times..never had a bedbug I am aware of..

sure I mean be careful and look always when u get somewhere new but trust me..IF a hotel had this issue people would write about it here.

Even the budget hotels like the Aqua Wave.....etc I have been though are clean. Bedbugs can happen anywhere even at a high end resort..but I have not seen this is a concerning issue here in Waikiki at this time.

I think you can feel comfortable choosing any hotel and just checking the situation out for yourself upon checkin.

Where did u find this list?

Ok so I found the following information on bedbugs in a few hotels in waikiki

You can go to the website yourself and look up your hotel.


the following came up in Waikiki

OHANA Maile Sky Court

2058 Kuhio Ave Honolulu, HI

Aqua Aloha Surf

444 Kanekapolei St Honolulu, HI

Waikiki Resort Hotel

2460 Koa Ave Honolulu, HI

Waikiki Grand Hotel

134 Kapahulu Ave Honolulu, HI

Park Shore Waikiki

2586 Kalakaua Ave Honolulu, HI

Aqua Continental

2426 Kuhio Ave Honolulu, HI

Resort Quest Pacific Monarch

2427 Kuhio Ave Honolulu, HI

Hotel Renew

129 Paoakalani Ave Honolulu, HI

Waikiki Beachside Hostel

2556 Lemon Rd Honolulu, HI

I was amused at the hotel Renew.. who said "they had no proof"..

If this happens to you..throw a royal fit....and demand action be done. It really is not common in Waikiki but if this happens to you please report it.. document as much as you can and also let us on TA know!

The only hotel you would stand a chance of not finding bed bugs would be one that just opened and no one has stayed in yet. Even then a construction worker could have left some behind.

A lot of the bed bug reports are not bed bugs at all but some sort of reaction to swiming in the ocean (for instance) or bug bites aquired elsewhere.

Are you sure your name isn't Orkin, instead of OrCon?? Couldn't help myself!

Do you worry about this issue at ALL hotels, no matter where you travel?

I have never come across bedbugs in Hawaii or anywhere else for that matter. (Hawaii 4 times)

Forget about the BUGS. Go and enjoy this wonderful place!!

So I'll add myself tothe list - many trips ... major islands ... not bedbugs. I agree that bites from other buggies could be miscontrued as bedbugs. And the reaction to heat and sweat.

Any hotel can have bedbugs. If it is a concern there are some steps you can take to check the room. Just Google it...
