Does the job.

For those seeking an affordable airport near the hotel, this is a great choice. Reliable shuttle service to and from HNL. Room is nothing spectacular but comfortable.

Perfect for a one-day stop

I was given a big, beautiful room on the 11th floor. I chose the airport hotel for convenience (free shuttle, free WiFi in the rooms) but the hotel sits next to the highway so the noise during peak traffic hours can be bothersome even from my room at the back. The dining room is open only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Fortunately, there is a small airport center just a short walk from the hotel which has a Starbucks, a few small eateries, and a convenience store. The hotel is perfect for a one-day stop.

Good place to overnight

You stay at this hotel because you want/need to be near the airport. As such, it is a great choice. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is helpful and cheerful. Although next to the airport and a major highway, noise is not a problem. You would not choose this hotel for the duration of your Hawaiian holiday, but as long as you understand this, you should be fine.

Good for a quick stay

Hotel is right below a busy highway. It is a good place if you need a quick night sleep and need to be near the airport.

Excellent for our needs

We stayed here to break up the flights from Cincinnati to New Zealand. I worried at first sight as it is on the highway and the wooden furniture is scratched and worn. I worried needlessly. The beds were comfortable and the room and bath were clean. Michael and Sharon in the restaurant were great at helping us negotiate gluten free options, and the food was very good. Cecilia at the desk gave us great advice on making the most of our day before our 9pm flight. She checked our bags for us, and the complimentary shuttle took us back to the airport after a day at Pearl Harbor.

Best Western Airport way.

Hotel is on bus route to Waikiki beach area, pearl harbor, free airport shuttle. Happy overall even if hotel is old next to busy freeway, quiet enough when door and windows closed. Musty smell typical in humid places. Avertised voucher for free breakfast and island orientation tour. Turned out only available for best western in Waikiki beach. Only for guests interested in going to buy your from agency. Quite misleading.

Room was too Hot

The picture showed a very nice high rise hotel. We were put in an annex. The room had no windows and the air conditioning was not working. It was so hot that even though we were exhausted from a long trip, it was impossible to sleep.
