Cheap place

Hotel was a good deal for Waikiki. Down in the middle of, walking distance to everything on the strip. Traffic there is a nightmare. There is no place to pull up to and unload your bags, the parking is under the hotel and first come only. My husband had to drag our bags up a bunch of steps to even make it to the lobby. The hotel is also sandwiched by 2 parking garages so it was loud at night with cars. Especially with the hotel having thin walls. Hotel was older but clean. Staff helpful enough. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay on the strip this'll do.

Good service

Between Internation Market Place and Duke Market place, next to Waikiki Trade Center. Close to everything, bus (stop at WTC or front of hotel)/shopping/walking/restaurant/tour pickup, block away to DFS Gallerie center with other luxuries brand (Louis Vuitton, MK, Coach). Two block from beach. Little noisy on the weekend at night until 4am, weekday is very quiet. Free Wifi in the hotel/room. Staff is very nice and helpful. There is chinese seafood restaurant inside the hotel. Computers are available with fee.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

If you spend more than 3 days then you should bought Go Oahu Card (google to find the best price, some site will sell 15-20% cheaper) and plan your day with those attraction. Here is how I spend my 3 days: Day 1: - Grand Circle island tour (from 7am-5pm, my kids doesn't like it, and ) - rent the moped (motocycle) free for 4 hours Day 2: - Pearl Harbor & Honolulu tour ('til noon) - Polynesian Culture Center (took bus #2 or #13 or #8 to ala moana shopping center, then transfer to bus #55 - about 2hrs on the bus), if you want buffett and show then you need to call in to get it reservation, (cost: english buffett is $20, Ali Luau $40) Day 3: - Makani Catamaran Sail in the morning - Go get the Waikiki Trolley pass (work for next day) - Stand Up Paddle Boarding (afternoon) - Germaine's Luau (Free as bonus) Day 4: - use Waikiki Trolley to go around the town to: shopping center, walmart, samsclub, diamond head hiking ($1 entrance), chinatown. Dining: Walk about 2 miles or took bus, away from waikiki, everything is cheaper than Waikiki. Otherwise you can choose any other buffet around area for about $20.

Aqua Waikiki Wave

Very convenient walking distance to everything I wanted to be near and see. It is literally backed up to the the International Marketplace The room was average in comfort, but needs updating in the bathroom, and the elevator service was very slow. It was quiet and clean and I had a good package deal price .

Good location, but parking for $23 per day

good location, but the amenities are not enough. Parking fee is $23 per day. No pool, and gym is really small.

Review of my stay

The pros: the staff were excellent in treating me as if I were the only customer they had. Room cleaning occurred daily and nothing was missed or short changed. The location is great, one block from the beach and next shopping centers. The cons: The facility is circa 1960s/1970s. And the rooms need an update. Parking is an option but limited spaces available. I would return to this hotel solely because the service was so good.

Oahu couples getaway

This hotel is an old boutique style business. The hotel is pretty clean, although mold is an issue. The staff are wonderful. Gabriel and Isaac could not have been more helpful, and saved us money on our adventures. Don't expect the rooms to be extraordinary, because they could use some serious remodeling. Great place for saving money, just don't expect it to be quiet.

Marukame Udon and Subway are across the street. For budget friendly dining, I would strongly suggest these two establishments.

Reasonable hotel.

I stayed for 3 nights. This hotel's price was reasonable. The room was clean every day and it's located not far from waikiki beach.
