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.

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.

Disapointing

Bathroom had long hair hanging from shower head and wasn't very clean overall. Surprise $20 resort fee at check in. Rooms are older. Location is great.

Great location

You cannot beat the location of this hotel. That is what you are paying for. The room is very basic, nothing special but it is clean. Front desk staff and local expert could have been more friendly. The valet staff was AWESOME. Very helpful and nice. If you love the beach, stay here. It is steps from this hotel.

Great Location

The location is great right across the street from surf breaks and rental boards. Partial ocean view has a nice view from the balcony. The buffet had great crab legs, the other food was average. Only complaint is the 25 dollars a day parking fee.

Pacific Beach Hotel

I love the location, it's right across from Waikiki Beach, and because I got the complimentary free upgrade to ocean view, we had the full view of the ocean from our balcony. The only thing I didn't like was that the only accessible gym is the 24hour fitness that requires guests to pay, and room service came kind of late and forgot to replace our beach towels.

Location, location!

If location is important, Pacific Beach is it. But because of its great location, be prepared to withstand "street noise" from cars and trucks, including early-morning service trucks, buses. Sometimes there's noise in the halls becuase of inconsiderate guests, but that's life. Hotel is a bit pricey for its offerings, but that's Waikii for you! Restaurant buffet that was $45 is a great deal, especially for seafood lovers.
