Friendly Service - Nice Value

This is a nice hotel 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach. If you can get a deal around $125 to $150 a night (with tax) for a 2 bedrm/1bath, then the value is good. Parking is extra-about $11 per day. We had several parents who stayed in the hotel for all-island soccer matches. Washing machines were conveniently located on each floor, there's a large pool, tennis courts, BBQ, and adjoing lounge/TV area. We had a really nice 2 bedrm/1 bath on upper floor with a great diamond head view. Many rooms have been recently redone and the pillows were great (a huge plus!). We liked having a kitchen and eating bar (there is no restaurant in hotel-but you are a short walk away from every type of restaurant); the only negative was no small dishwasher for the kitchen and the elevators can be slow. Staff was courteous. If you snag an upper floor ocean view (higher price), the views are fabulous. Not much of a lobby, but totally adequate in that respect. This hotel can accomadate romantic couples or families and is still fairly quiet but close to the action if you choose to be.

2 blocks to Waikiki beach which is a great beach. Fun for the kids to learn to surf right there. Also fun if you like to walk around and people watch. Some fabulous shops in Waikiki, although Cartier, Chanel, etc, are expensive. Kapiolani Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium are close by.

Good Value

The Waikiki Sunset offers a condimidium at hotel rates just blocks from the beach. Some rooms even have a Diamondhead view. There is a full kitchen with all needed cookware, grills on site and a lanai for relaxing with a cup of Kona coffee or cocktail. In addition to the king bed in the separate guest room, the couch converts to a double bed. We had to have the air conditioner adjusted as it operated on a motion sensor which would revert to 78 degrees unless it sensed motion in the room; too warm when we returned to the room after a day at the beach.

Good location, but our view of the ocean was blocked by a few other tall buildings that was unexpected when looking at the hotel discriptions on the web. Hotel was clean and serviced well.

Room had everything we needed! Quick walk to beach and shopping. Housekeeping kept us with fresh linens everyday. No major problems to speak of. Will try and stay there again on our next visit.

Upgraded our room to a double room after our original reservation had already been given up. Had an unobstructed view of Diamond Head, which was really nice.

Kapahulu, just a few short minutes by walking, is your gateway to really great local spots that are inexpensive and more delicious than most of touristy Waikiki. Get out there and explore!

Nice Getaway

Not bad, rooms have been re done. Large space, but about two-three blocks from beach and at the very end of Waikiki. Other guest got kind of loud at times.

Great value, nice staff, good location in Waikiki.

Visited family and did some business. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Relatively quiet and staff was friendly and responsive to a broken curtain wand which was fixed immediately. Store in the building was convenient and the kitchen was helpful in preparing breakfast and late night snacks. Saved lots of $$! Wish they didn't charge so much for parking and the mandatory resort fee. All in all a good value for what you get. I also like the DVD and game rentals.

basic clean place to sleep

The Resortquest Waikiki Sunset is a reasonable hotel at a great price. It's a little older but fine for us because all we wanted was a clean place to shower and sleep. They won't allow you to check in early, but they will store your bags so you can shop or eat while you wait for 3:00 to roll around. The 4 elevators are inadequate for the hotel - they were often so full we would wait for the next one; and even on lower floors you can't take the stairs because the doors are locked on every level except the lobby - this is an understandable security precaution, but it would have been nice to be able take the stairs instead of waiting for the lift, especially going between the 5th and 6th floors where the convenience store and the pool / business center are located. The full-size kitchen was nice to have, altho we didn't use it much. The laundry room on our floor (7) had 2 washers and 2 dryers, the dryer ran very hot so pay attention to your clothes. The shower curtain was not up to the task, the bathroom floor was always wet after a shower. All in all, not great luxury but a clean place to sleep in Waikiki, definitely good if you are on a budget and would rather spend your money on activities than on a swanky hotel.

take advantage of the coupon book that the hotel gives, also check out Oahu Gold book available free on street stands. The buses are a pretty good way to get around if you don't have a car, and many activities away from Waikiki include shuttle transportation.
