“Clean, functional, spacious, friendly and well located.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

The Ramada Plaza hotel is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to stay somewhere out of the middle of the hustle and bustle of the centre of Waikiki but still wanting close proximity.

Pool was nice, the room was clean, the bed was VERY comfortable and as advertised. The only issue I had was the fridge had a bit of a fit and stopped working. The front desk were helpful and sent someone up to fix it, it was fixed, and I lost a tub of ice cream in the process but it's not like I'm going to let a 2 dollar tub of ice cream ruin a hotel's reputation over something they couldn't control and fixed immediately.

Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

You are not quite in the action of Waikiki (a plus point for us) Rooms are spacious air conditioned,clean and well maintained quality furniture/ fittings.Its a quiet location with quiet guestsalthough there is a building site across the road there was no evening activity. Sadly we didnt have any cockroaches but maybe we'lll be lucky next time.Honolulu is in the tropics after all.I had a huge one move into my shoe overnight when we stayed on Christmas Island!
Staff were friendly and helpful. The Wailana resturant/diner is recommended and about 150 yards away.
One downside the coffee machine in the room takes about an hour to percoloate.There is free coffee in the lobby from 7pm onwards.Its much quicker to go downstairs and get a cup than wait for the in room machine.
The Ramada is great value for money and has everything you would expect from a Ramada Plaza with very helpful staff and concierge services.

After staying right in the centre of Waikiki for a week, we decided to move out of the hustle & bustle for a few days & moved to Ramada Plaza, Ala Moana Blvd. ( ...BUT still staying within one mile of the action! )
Ramada Plaza outdid our expectations ... it was comfortable & clean, air conditioned - good size room, bath/shower, coffee facilities, refrigerator, microwave,big screen tv, free room wifi, table & chairs, room safe + the handy amenities of shampoo, shower cap etc!
What really surprised me was the convenience of 24hr internet available on their two computers in the foyer (FREE!) .. (also with a printer attached for convenience) ... AND each morning they also had a great little breakfast table with coffee, tea & water available to all patrons (again in the foyer)
The staff was courteous & helpful (including the lovely lady looking after the carpark!)
The day before we left they decorated the foyer in beautiful Christmas decorations - we LOVED the fresh Christmas tree with a beach theme!
I booked directly with the hotel and got a good rate!
Would I recommend it to friends ??? Most definitely value for money!

Room Tip: Phone the Hotel directly to get a good deal!

I got the room through Priceline, and wasn't worried initially given my previous stays with other Ramada locations.

The positives: Great location, low noise level (our room was not facing the main drag), comfortable bed, free wifi, room safe

The negative: not much of a view, we returned to our room at around 10 PM the second night to find a roach (big, and the kind that flies). After a few minutes of chase, we were able to kill it. See attached pics.

We informed the receptionist the same night, and was offered a room change (it was too late to get housekeeping to spray the room). It was late, and we had our belongings were all over the room. That said, we opted to stay put (we were checking out the following morning).

We also informed the day manager of our experience and showed him pictures. He made the same offers as the night receptionist (spray the room or change room). We were checking out in a few hours, so those options were not beneficial to us. I showed him the pictures again so he could see what we found, and then went back to the room.

When we checked out, the day receptionist gave us a box of chocolate (according to her, it was a gift from the day manager to make up for the roach). She also apologized and said that roaches were common to Honolulu given its tropical conditions.

I have been to Hawaii (Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai) many times. This was the first time I encountered a roach in a hotel.

The Ramada Plaza Waikiki is not a hotel that you would "ooh and aah" over because of decor or architecture, but it is well appointed, well maintained, clean, relatively inexpensive & well located. The Ramada Plaza is about a quarter mile from Waikiki Beach & there are a number of restaurants in easy walking distance. Rooms have new big screen tv's. A lot of rooms do not have an ocean view. Jasmine at Elite Concierge Services in their lobby was extremely helpful.
