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.

Good location. Small Hotel

The location is great. However, the rooms are too small and odd shaped. The shower is so small, making it impossible to shave your legs. I would not stay here again.

hula hula away

I booked this hotel as it said it would accomodate 4 people in one room and was right on Waikiki Beach. I thought I just can't go wrong, staying on Waikiki Beach is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Check in procedure was very smooth and the receptionist was very helpful. When we got to room #504 with our 4 medium sized suitcases, in all honestly it was a squeeze to get into the room. We had 2 double beds and next to not alot of walking space or unpacking space. The bathroom too was compact. One other downside I have to mention is that our room was right above the eggs n things restaurant and as soon as you opened the patio, all you could smell was food being cooked all day/night, and the generator humming away from the adjacent hotel. This was really disappointing after having paid a lot of money for one nights stay. This room is certainly not big enough to accomodate 4 adults and medium sized suitcases. As the hotel's own car park was full, (you would think with an advanced booking there would be a space reserved) we had to go to the sister hotel and pay an extra $20 so that we could park our car for the night. Overall disappointed.

super solo trip

Excellent location! Also, noisy, crowded and touristy but OK with me. Room fine for 1-2 travelers, very clean, great housekeeping. Noisy AC but realized on the last day I could have adjusted a setting which would have made things betters. Balcony overlooking Kuhio beach.

NOT ocean view and Large noise

The way they define ocean view is tricky and deceptive. From my understanding, their ocean view room is only partial ocean view. Besides, the AC of the neighbor building were making large noise all the time (day and night).

Very satisfactory at this price.

this hotel was way more than I expected at this price range. Location was perfect. Right at the beach, heart of Waikiki area, close to bigger hotels, restaurants, entertainment, shopping. Room was little mall but newly updated and very clean (no smells or anything). Staff was also friendly during our limited interaction. Only negative is that there is not too much amenities even though you pay 18$ per day. No pool, parking is extra. Internet was fast (was able to watch HD netflix), they give out beach towels and some water beds, toys, etc...

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

We thought we wouldn't need a car here but it turns out that a car would save you a lot of time (compared to public bus) and money (compared to paying the tours). So, I strongly suggest that you rent a car and enjoy more of this beautiful island.

Value In Paradise

My family and I just returned from a week at the Waikiki Circle Hotel. First visit to Hawaii. Excellent location: next to McDonald's, ABC stores on either side, across from beach. Upgraded to a side view for $100 at check-in; still, amazing balcony views of beautiful ocean and Diamond Head. Didn't want to leave. Room was a bit tight for a family of 3, but was only in room to shower and sleep.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Moana Surfrider at Westin Hotel has a beachside outdoor bar that's perfect for a romantic spot to sit and enjoy Waikiki at night.
