“Basic room/great price”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

This hotel met or exceeded our expectations. Room was on 15th floor with view of waikiki. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff. A nice bang for our buck and a very short walk (one block) to the beach...can't beat it for the price. Stay if possible 15th floor or higher...can get noisy on the strip.

Very nice room and friendly, helpful employees. The view wasn't very much, but the breakfast buffet that came with the package was great. It is very well situated close to the beach, restaurants and transport.

Room Tip: Although not on the beach, it was very handy to everything.

We stayed on the 18th floor in a 1 bedroom apartment and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was.
The cleaners did a wonderful job everyday and the reception staff were very nice and approachable.
Before we left I read not so good reviews about this hotel but we felt it was good value for money and in a great location as well.

Room Tip: The 18th floor!

Stayed here for 5 nights right after a short stay in Vegas. So was quite nice going from a humongous hotel to a little one!

As mentioned in previous reviews, the location of hotel is superb. Literally seconds away from the beach and close to many shops, restaurants and a bus stop is right around the corner.

We arrived just after 2pm so had to wait till 3pm to check in. The lady who checked us in was very nice, I think her name was Nancy?? Lobby was very nice and open - very welcoming. Wi-Fi worked great. There was a handy little shop with groceries and souvenirs, but we got shouted at by shop assistant for walking in with drinks - so didnt go back in after that!

Room and balcony was a decent size. Two double beds and a good sized television with lots of stations. Bathroom was quite small with a low bath. Could not work out how to use shower. Had to go down to reception where the staff member whipped out a dummy tap and showed us how to use.
Saw that dummy tap on quite a few occasions when other guests were asking how to use it, so I don't know why they haven't included instructions in the rooms.

Rooms also featured a good sized safe (would fit a laptop easily, both our ipads got in there) and a fridge.

On one day housekeeping did not make our room up. After two visits to reception it was finally done that evening.
They tried to blame the "do not disturb" sign but we had removed this from our door after 10:00am
But again reception staff were very helpful and apologetic and got it all resolved for us.

Hope to return to Honolulu at some point and would consider this hotel again.

We have enjoyed our pre cruise stopover at this hotel. We arrived about 10.30am to find our room ready and we appreciated getting in early. It is very well situated close to the beach, restaurants and transport. The staff is courteous and our room 1217 clean and large with partial views. From our balcony we enjoyed watching the surfers day and night. It has an iron and ironing board. Coffee and toiletries were supplied but no milk or creamer. The laundry rates were cheap. The pool could do with a bit more greenery but was clean and never crowded. Of course we would have liked the free wifi in our room but it worked well in the foyer. Like many hotels there were no overhead lights and for two queen size beds only one table lamp. For couples who both like to read in bed this is not satisfactory and probably the only negative comment I can make.

Perfect location a stones throw from the beach and all the action. Nice rooms, nice breakfast and good value. I would recommend to anyone going to waikiki. Why pay heaps to be in a hotel on the beach when you're out of the hotel most of the time anyway.
Fab just fab! :D

I stayed at the Waikiki Resort Hotel for 6 nights.

Arrived at the Hotel at approx. 10.30am, as expected my room was not available as check-in is 3pm. Arrived back after 3pm to find the room still not available, reception again advised that check-in was 3pm. When I pointed out that it was now after 3 a room became availabe.

My room, on the 15th floor was of a reasonable size with two double beds. Decor is a bit dated but not too bad.

I had a problem with draining in the bathroom sink. Advised reception, this took several days to be fixed.

Overall the hotel is extremely well situated, only one block from the beach as many of the the Waikiki attractions. The receiption area is spacious and comfortable.

There is a charge for Wi-fi in your room but free in receiption. It is interested to see everyone in reception tapping way at their computers and tablets.

The pool is rather un-inviting with little or no plants and the pool is small. But most go to the beach.

The hotel was quite, room comfortable, great location.
