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.

vintage feel..but great location!

the best part about this hotel is the location. its definitely in the primary location of center Waikiki, so you can pretty much walk to any main destination. the hotel itself is very average, nothing special, it has a vintage feel with a lot of families running around. the room was spacious with a balcony. the only thing that bothered me was the front desk service. they never picked up their phones! i am not sure if i will stay here again but, overall, it was good for the price.

Islander Review

Drain was clogged in the shower and the coffee maker in the room was not clean. There was some kind of particles in the pot after the water was brewed. The location is great and this helped us get to our destination and do our business with no problems.

Prime location but...

After a long flight we arrived at the Pacific beach hotel exhausted. Our room was on the 15 'th floor. we found the room to be dirty and noise from the street below was loud. The room had two double beds. After a few hours of sleep, we went to the lobby to request a room with a view and a king or queen size bed. We were told that the room we were in was upgraded and that any further upgrade would cost an extra $160 per night. Big disappointment. The room was advertised to have high speed Internet. It did not have wi-fi, but it did have an Ethernet cable for Internet. The Internet did not work, the reception desk sent a technician up to the room who replaced cables and reset the modem. That did not help so he phoned the Internet provider. In the end, after trouble shooting with the hotel technicians for a few hours, the decision was made to move us to another room. We paid the $10 for a day of slow Internet and when we wanted to renew the connection the next day the server was down! There is a Mc Donalds across the road with free Wi-fi, we used that facility throughout our vacation to communicate with family and friends. Local calls are charged at $1 per call by the hotel. They had two calls added to my bill which were made by the technician trying to repair the Internet connection. Charges were dropped when I objected to them. With a bit of a clean up, replacing the double with queen or king size beds and complimentary Wi-Fi our stay would have been perfect. Location was ideal.

Don't bother with the expensive and unreliable Internet offered by the hotel. Mc Donald's across the road has an excellent free Wi-fi service.

Good Location & Staff

The staff are very freindly and very helpful. The huge aquarium in the resturant in the hotel was fun to watch and got see see someone scuba dive & feed the fish while there (we never ate there but could see the tank from the lobby area). The location was very good (Waikiki beach is just across the street & we were able to walk to many places, such as the zoo).Thre was even some musical entertainment on the beach most nights (free).The buses & trolleys are handy & reasonable in price.The transit staff are very helpful to get you to your destination, like mini tour guides.All of Waikiki felt very safe.The rooms were clean and comfortable. The only draw back was the walls are thin (but most of the guests were quiet at a reasonable hour), we could hear conversations in the hallway to the rooms (some of this could have been avoided if people used their "inside voices" more) & some noise from the next door rooms. But when all was said and done, it was a good place to stay. "Mahalo" to all of the staff at the Pacific Beach hotel!

If your plan to do any tours,luaus, etc...go to the tour guides in the hotel (the ones that DON'T pester you often on the street! # the prices are good and the staff is helpful and will address any problems you may have # we had none, but "Tina" was more than willing to help if we needed her # . Heard that the street ones were not helpful when a charged for part of the tour was not open, it had been closed for two+ weeks # would not refund or help the groups with concerns ) . If it sounds to good....avoid it!

Fun in the Sun

It was a great time and perfect location. The strip was like being in Vegas without the casinos. The beach was only a minute walk away and the public transportation was the best I've been on ever. Can't wait to go back. THANKS BUNCHES!!!!!

They almost had it... so right

This hotel is a bit older but still very nice, with one of the best restaurants in town, friendly staff, great water pressure (not an automatic in big Hawaii hotels). I had the partial ocean view, very nice room. Here's where they lost me: On checkout day, I found out there was a 20$/day "amenity fee" added to my 8 night stay... about 170$ w/taxes total. When I asked what this was for, I was told it was for the free bottles of water, free internet, and the 50% rebate for the gym guest passes... "Like a resort fee" were the manager's exact words. Here's the thing; the bottles said right on it that they were free, the login website for the internet said right on that it was complimentary and I didn't use the gym while I was there. I don't mind paying for this kinda of stuff but doing it this way definitely felt like a ripoff... So, just so you're warned, whatever you think you're paying for this hotel, add 20$/day.

Great Location, Pool is a huge let down

We were very happy with the value. A few problems but they were fixed by the wonderful staff immediately. (vey slow draining shower, light bulb out, nothing major) Location is perfect but the pool is a huge let down when you want to get away from crowded beaches.
