For the visitor looking to roll out of bed and onto the sand without breaking the bank, the Waikiki Circle is ready to accommodate. Located across the street from Waikiki Beach on a stretch unblocked by other hotels, access to the beach is quick. The hotel's unique circle shape means a good chance for amazing ocean views from your private balcony. Expect friendly service and modest, island-style rooms. Borrow mats, floats and other beach gear from the hotel. Parking is available for an added fee.

Location not comfort

The hotel was exactly what you pay for, location. Don't expect much. The beach towels and water toys were nice but in Hawaii it is standard. The air conditioner will keep you up most of the night, and the room and bathroom are small enough to bump into yourself. The rooms don't have any place to store your clothes so you need to keep them in your luggage which takes up space. Plan on using one bed to put your belongings on while you use the other bed. But what can I say, the location is right across the street from the beach.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There are too many activities to do on the island. Plan things out and make a schedule that works for you. There are tons of people offering deals and discounts for any and all activities on the streets but make sure transportation is included. Never and I mean never buy souvenirs at any of the ABC stores. They mark up the prices 3 or 4 times as much as the Aloha swap market.

fun and short

The location was fabulous for the price compared to all other places around there. Waikiki beach is a man made beach that has become the main tourist attraction on oahu island, so being able to walk out of this small hotel and cross the street to this beach is definitely easy and comfortable. We stayed on 3rd floor but around 5am everyday, we can hear the street noise and people talking plus the doors slammed on our floor would just rattle our room which made it unpleasant only around this time. We were out all days on excursions and only there to sleep. We recommend this hotel to people who like the beach activities, and run along the city path.

Waikiki nov 2010

I was in a pre renovation room. It was just what I needed, Clean bed, tv and shower. Everything worked and the view from the room was awesome. The new rooms should be really nice. The renovations were restricted to 9 am to 5 pm and there was only one really noisy day. I was there 8 days. I would go back again. Centrally located, I only used a cab once. Walked to everything I needed.

Good location, small rooms

Location was great, rooms small, not a lot of space to put clothes away clothes. Balcony is ok for two, would not recommend more than two people to a room, even with kids.

Wonderful location, great price

Great no frills hotel for those who don't want to spend a lot of time in your room. The beach is across the street. The hotel will lend you towels and beach toys. Very friendly and helpful staff. I suggest parking at the Banyan hotel. It's a few blocks away but has more parking spots, it less money, and easier access. The rooms are small, but we spent very little time there. Our room had a small fridge, hair dryer, and a safe (small daily charge for safe). The location and price of this hotel far outweigh any negatives.

Good hotel for Price

This hotel did exactly what I needed it to do. It was a great location in Waikiki, and it provided the necessary things found in a hotel room: beds, bathroom and a television!
