“Good hotel and location”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Stayed here for 11 days (both business and pleasure) and had very limited complaints. Not on the beach but less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. We were originally put in a room with 2 full-size beds and they very quickly got us moved to a room with one king-size bed. One thing to keep in mind is that parking is valet-only so you will have to go through that every day. We were on the 4th floor facing the city so didn't really have a view, but we didn't plan on spending much time sitting on the balcony anyway! With so many floors, it's understandable that there will be a wait sometimes for the elevator, so we were lucky to be closer to the lobby in my opinion.

Room Tip: If a view is important, make sure to request a higher level facing either the beach or mountain.

On the main road through Waikiki and a few minutes walk to the beach, but not beach font, it is also a great location for many bars and restaurants. Helpful staff and great people working the in bars which is right next to the pool. Pool deck is quite small and did get busy at certain times. Our room overlooked the market and mall by the hotel and was quite noisy with the road and the bin men emptier the industrial bins next door in the early hours. As the hotel was busy we could not move to a better room, so the problem was solved by the airline ear plugs!

We had a nice large room with coffee making and it was very comfortable (apart from the noise).

Used the spa which is just a converted room so you don't get the spa experience, however the treatments are good

For an older hotel, this property was priced right and had exactly what we needed. Pleasent staff, beautiful rooms and balconys. Thank you Holiday inn for being consistant! A balcony is a must, splurge and you will not regret it!!!

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a balcony on a top floor.

Checked into room 1122 on May 22, 2014. Did a check for bed bugs as I always do upon arrival into any hotel. Things appeared okay. Went out for about half an hour and came back to the room. Noticed a bug crawling on one of the pillows. Picked it up with a Kleenex and inspected it. Compared it with pictures of bedbugs on the Internet. Definitely a bed bug! Think I must have stirred things up during my inspection!

Went down to the front desk and showed the bug to the hotel's front desk clerk who CONFIRMED it was a bed bug. Rather than change rooms, we chose to change hotels.

Room Tip: Move up to a higher end hotel if you can afford to!

In walking distance from shopping, beach, zoo, and restaurants. Not too expensive like a lot of the hotels near by.
I liked the fact that there are washers and dryers located on the first floor for you to use for your sandy beach clothes.
Also has a nice little outside pool right next to the bar/restaurant.

If you have to stay in Waikiki this is a decent place to stay its clean and relatively quite. There is a lot of construction going on were the old and gone now International Market Place was till according to the sign 2016. So if your on a working holiday and need to sleep during the day it might be a bit noisy. Overall its very central to many places such as the Zoo and the Aquarium. Many cheap places to eat near by if you are willing to try local food.
I want to say that the room service was outstanding on my floor which was the 3rd floor. Thanks to MARICON for her great service.
If you have a rental car and need to park it while you stay here tack on another $30.00 bucks. Waikiki is not a place I would come to other than to stay for work. I'm originally from here and could tell you of many better places to stay.
This is a review of this hotel and I give it a thumbs up.

Room Tip: For a View stay at a higher floor. Have your pass key in your pocket because the elevators require t...

We have just returned from a week staying at the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber. On arrival we were too early to book in as we arrived quite early. The Reception staff were excellent and friendly and said they would try to get one of our rooms ready for 12.00p.m. as check in is normally 3.00p.m. Lucky for us we were able to get one room at 12.00p.m. The bars were excellent at the Hotel and the staff again very friendly and helpful. The Restaurant at night was excellent, food very tasty but didn't think much of their breakfast, hence we only had breakfast on one morning there. There are a couple of cafes a block or so at the back of the hotel that were better. Our room was okay, probably needed a reno, but our other room was fine. Not much of a view though but you really arent there that much. If we return to Honolulu would stay there again. Location was good and central. Markets at the side of the hotel.
