The Pacific Beach Hotel in Hawaii's Oahu is a haven for both children and those who once were children. The three-story, 280,000-gallon aquarium is a big hit, along with the arcade, pool and whirlpool. For the sports enthusiast, there are on-site tennis courts and jogging trails nearby. The Oceanarium Restaurant will draw everyone to the table with a colorful seafood buffet, and the Polynesian Dinner Show is a fire-blazing spectacle not to be missed. The hotel also wins points for being one of the most environmentally friendly locations on the island of Oahu; certain rooms use only recycled or biodegradable products and limit energy consumption.

Neighborhood
The Pacific Beach Hotel is located across from Kuhio, the calmest section of ocean in the area, and guests can enjoy lodging on Kalakaua Avenue, a popular stretch for visitors that includes many shopping and dining options next to Waikiki Beach. High-end retailers like Cartier and Apple share the space with outside vendors selling trinkets and souvenirs. Many famous chain restaurants can be found, including California Pizza Kitchen. The Honolulu Zoo is only a 10-minute walk away.
Hints and tips
When you book your stay, ask for an oceanfront room above the fifth floor for the most impressive window panoramas.

Consider stocking up on snacks or small breakfast treats at the ABC Store in the lobby - they might come in handy during early morning tour excursions.

Pretty decent

This hotel isn't mind blowing or anything, but it's pretty good value for the money. Basically like a really good 3-star hotel. Awesome location. Very nice view of the beach from my balcony. You don't need to get a rental car for your trip. You can just get one for the day you need it at the rental car office in the lobby. I didn't go to the buffet, so I can't comment on that. I stopped at the cafe downstairs several times. Basic coffee shop with a variety of pastries. The food is nothing special, but the seating area is nice. Shaded, semi-decent view of the mass of tourists constantly walking by the beach. Good for people watching. The room was pretty clean. A little bit stuffy/light mildew smell, but that's usually the case at mid-level beach hotels. It was supposed to be non-smoking, but my neighbor kept smoking on their balcony, and their smoke would blow into my room. That was annoying since I'm allergic to cigarette smoke. Had to close the balcony door whenever they were smoking. All in all, it was a pretty good deal for the money. Great view. Perfect spot close to everything. Cleanish. Reasonable price. If you to go all out, you can stay at the Hilton or Sheraton, but if you want a decent beach view hotel without all the flash and dazzle at a lower price, this one's pretty good.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Apparently the lines at dollar rent a car get huge, but if you use the kiosk inside the hotel, you skip the lines. The shuttle picks you up and takes you there. But don't get the economy car. It's the size of a tin can and smells like a wet towel.

Very nice hotel.

This was my 5th or 6th visit to this hotel. The location is just perfect being directly across the street from the beach. The staff has always been very friendly and accommodating to ones needs. They show concern about your needs and work to ensure an enjoyable stay. Would and do highly recommend this hotel.

Only fair location only good thing

The bathroom was pretty dirty, not as in a couple of cleanings, buts months maybe even years. I took pictures, it was gross! The bed was clean and comfy, the furniture was old, but dusted. The rug was vacuumed. The slider to go out on the balcony lock was barely functional, the outside chairs were old. Just kinda yuck overall.

Wonderful service!

The Pacific Beach Hotel has lovely customer service, the room - oceanfront on the 5th floor was gorgeous! When asking to extend for a few hours since I needed access to a fridge for breastmilk, they accommodated our request and even stored my freezer packs in their restaurant freezer. The oceanarium restaurant has a beautiful aquarium - three stories and the breakfast buffet was delicious. We loved it! And the Location is right on Waikiki beach-in the heart of Honolulu. Definitely recommend this hotel!

Nice hotel, great location

This hotel is clean, great location, concierge desk if very helpful and has many options. The Waikiki shopping strip is VERY busy and loud, which echoes up to the rooms. Not enough dining options at the hotel or nearby. We did go to the Oceanarium buffet in the hotel. It was average food and beware - the buffet was $48 per person!!! We had no idea! Overall, we were happy there.

Noisy room

I guess the room walls are very thin. We could clearly hear the toilet flushing, talking (not particularly loudly), moving furniture, walking, etc from the neighboring rooms. In my room (partial ocean view with 2 double beds), the sink and mirror are located outside the bathroom in between the bathroom and the sleeping area, again split by a thin wall which doesn't go all the way across the room. So when I got up earlier than the other person to freshen up it's kind of noisy for the person who's still in bed. Location is perfect though right next to the beach. Staff very helpful.

nice location, hotel needs better amenities

The room was great, view was great, and overall a good value. However, the staff was essentially non-existent, the ac in the room did not work properly and if you take the elevators be prepared for a lengthy wait.
