“Spacious Clean Rooms”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Stayed in the main tower (not the Terrace) and loved the room. It was clean and pretty spacious. The price was also pretty reasonable. I stayed at the Ala Moana the day before. It was about $60.00 more and the room was smaller.

I recently stayed at the Pagoda Hotel and it was very clean, quiet, nice, large room, comfortable bed, and convenient walking distance to Ala Moana Shopping Center, Walmart, and Ross. I recommend it to anyone who values convenience, great price, and cleanliness.

Room Tip: The Tower is good for quetness, the large suites/rooms across the street are great for families.

Pagoda used to be the hotel of choice for kamaaina's visiting from another island, but it was beginning to show its age. Now under new ownership and management, it is really a great place to stay. I hear they are still making more modernization changes, which will be great. For the price, it is a great value, and I rather save my money to spend on other things. We will be back!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for renovated rooms.

Happy to report that the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu is a great bargain. We stayed
in a deluxe room which had been recently renovated . It was clean and well appointed
with coffee maker,microwave, toaster, refrigerator ,and even a safe! The rates were very reasonable and the staff was hospitable and efficient. We will return!

Room Tip: book a deluxe room !

The Pagoda is truly "no ka oi" (the best!) place to stay on Oahu. The Pagoda ohana radiates the Aloha spirit through its welcoming, friendly, humble, responsive and kind ways.

Accommodations: clean rooms, excellent housekeeping services, secured elevator access restricted to guests, reasonable parking rates

Amenities: microwave, good size compact refrigerator, very cold A/C, handy bar sink in the bedroom, HDTV, Wifi, free ice (ground floor), swimming pool, award-winning Pagoda Restaurant

Location: walking distance to many establishments including 24-hour stores (e.g., Walmart, Don Quijote), Starbucks, Ala Moana Shopping Center, beaches, trolleys, restaurants

The Pagoda Hotel is one of the best kept secrets on Oahu.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the 8th and higher floors are the best!

Hotels.com booked me with another hotel due to their misinformation and then redirected myself to Pagoda (who is pet friendly)Hotel. With the stress of driving around to a 2nd hotel and the inconvenience due to time - the staff at Pagoda were very accommodating, professional, supportive and a customer service of "kindness" that words can not express. An unpleasant situation occurred while at the hotel and ALL the staff deal with it immediately reassuring my safety and that they had a 0 tolerance. So even though it is not a 5* updated renovated hotel - the comfort and basic rooms combined with the staff made my stay pleasurable. I would like to thank Jasmyn (front desk), MeryKnoll (Mgr.), Daniel (Security) and Emyl (Technician) for all their help. Helen
