Hidden gem of a hotel

Wonderful 1 night stay (my United Airlines flight was overbooked so had to stay an extra day/night) in a newly carpeted and furnished Studio with Kitchenette. I booked a less expensive Single Room at Ewa Hotel but most of their singles are being renovated this week so I got a FREE upgrade. This hotel is a hidden gem - on a quiet side street in the south end of Waikiki Beach and their covered parking; at just $20 all day with in/out capability, is $5- $15 cheaper than other hotels in the area. No swimming pool but who needs a pool when you have the breakwater-protected bathwater-temperature South Pacific Ocean at Waikiki Beach just a 4 minute walk away! I stayed at their sister hotel that also has Studio with Kitchenette rooms for the previous 11 days because the Ewa Hotel was fully booked by participants of the Aloha Week participants. I will surely book my stay at the Ewa Hotel far in advance during my next visit to O'ahu!

Poor customer service

Good feature: Kitchenette. Bad: Bath towels are thin and small. They are not enough for use. Check out time is 12:00 noon and there is no flexibility for late check out. Your 10% discount coupon did not work with this hotel.

Grumpy

We enjoyed staying at Ewald Hotel except for clerk, Key. He seemed bent on winning the award for worse desk clerk in all Waikiki . He won that award. He was not helpful, courteous, or kind. He rolled his eyes and was brusque with us when we checked in and through out our stay. Other staff were fine. I would not stay at Ewa Hotel again because of his rudeness. Otherwise, rooms were clean and comfortable. great location!

Great budget hotel

Staff were kind and helpful. Location for a quieter stay in Waikiki was ideal. Rooms were on the small side, but were quite, and clean with comfortable beds and air conditioning that worked flawlessly.

Great Location, Friendly Staff

This hotel isn't a resort, but it's a great place to stay if you don't spend a lot of time in your room. The location is superb, the staff was great, the room was clean and the accommodations were good quality but again this is not a luxury resort. I would stay here again.
