I'm an annual traveller to Honolulu and stay from 2 weeks to a month. I booked by phone with Hawaiian Condo Resorts. I was warned that this is not a luxury property as I had stayed at the Royal Gardens in 2007 and found it very comfortable.
However, I was not prepared for the dirty bathroom, kitchen (thick grease and dead bugs under the kitchen sink) and seriously stained rug. They did send someone in to clean and shampoo a few days after arrival but this should have been done beforehand. It takes valuable time away from your holiday when you have to spend time on the phone making arrangements and then sitting around waiting for them to arrive.
I was informed when booking that this was a 'recently renovated' unit and it was anything but with cracked tiles, damaged floors and bedding that did not fit the mattress properly. I understand that there are some fairly decent units in the Marine Surf but I wouldn't book with Hawaiian Condo Resorts again as you cannot trust what they tell you when you can't check things out beforehand.
The best thing about the place is its proximity to just about everywhere in Waikiki you'd want to go. Also the monthly rate was low for the location. As far as I'm concerned you benefit most when you're NOT IN the actual hotel.
