Accommodations in Waikiki are pretty expensive, and so we found this cute little hotel in the shadow of the Trump Hotel. It was fine for us, a family of four with a teen and pre-teen.
The kitchen was nice, with full-sized refrigerator but no microwave. A small wall-mounted flat-screen TV and cable. Air conditioning in the back bedroom, but it had a hard time keeping up with the entire living space; we didn't close the door separating the bedroom from the livingroom, which helped the kids (who slept on the two beds in the livingroom) stay cooler. This is a hotel dating from the time before Waikiki high-rises, and it hasn't really been updated much.
The older woman running the hotel is the sweetest, so if you can overlook the peeling paint in the bathroom and you're fine with the bare necessities (clean place with no cockroaches) plus a few extras (full kitchen and cable TV), you'll be satisfied.
Note that early mornings can be noisy because the Trump empties their glass recycling next door and the garbage trucks can be noisy too. The hotel has no parking for itself, so you must arrange parking at the lot across the street - it's additional expense and make sure it's available, as sometimes special events will result in all the local parking being booked! They do not provide Internet either.More
