Decent hotel except for the ANTS!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for out first trip to Hawaii. The location was absolutely perfect, with just two blocks from Waikiki and the Honolulu Zoo right across the street. The individual who checked us in was very kind and helpful. The only complaint I had, was that within 2 days of being there, little ants were crawling around our kitchen. And our kitchen was not dirty. I complained to the staff and they told me they could have someone come by and kill the bugs, but that they didn't have any other rooms for me until the next day. I was slightly disappointed with that response, but after the worker came and sprayed, we didn't see the bugs again. Overall, the hotel is great for a cheaper hotel. However, I think next time we will pay for something a little nicer.

OK stay

Just stayed for one night. Ok for a place to sleep if you're just passing through. We flew to Oahu for a vist to the PCC and flew back to Maui the next day so we just needed an overnight. Bed was ok, shower was ok. I wouldn't recommend for an extended stay. Hotel is very old .

Good for 1 night passing thru

We arrived at 10 pm after a day at PCC. There was no parking available and we had to try to find a parking space in the area. We found a spot at the zoo. We paid for overnight parking there and had to walk with our luggage several blocks back to the hotel. I would only stay here for a place to sleep for one night which is what we needed as we had flown over from Maui to go to PCC for one day and the returned to Maui. If I were staying at Waikiki I would find another place.

It was good room, great location 100 m from Waikiki Beach. Big beds and kitchen, and a parking place in the building. Good place.

Family trip

Hotel is in a good location. Parking is not that problem. It is ok for the money you pay in Waikiki. Beach is so close. They had small kitchen it was really good to cook when you are bored of outside food. Staff is nice. It is not a fancy hotel but clean and good location.

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!
