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.

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.

A Great Experience

I spent one night at Pacific Beach Hotel on my way to Japan and I have to say it was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at ever. The staff was friendly and accomodating, the room (30th floor) was beautiful with an awesome view of Honolulu and the South Beach. I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay.

Good overall experience in Waikiki!

I enjoyed my stay at pacific beach hotel. I had booked a partial ocean view non smoking but when I arrived they had me booked in a smoking room. The front desk swiftly corrected this and moved me to a non okinh room as previously booked and since there were no partial non plunge rooms available they upgraded me to a non poking ocean front room at ok extra charge! The parking is pricey an there is a resort amenity fee that I thought was a little over the top for a 3 star hotel. I enjoyed my stay but this hotel is a little pricey for what you get. I highly recommend trying the hotels oceanarium buffet restaurant, at almost $50 each it's pricey but worth it!

Perfect Location

Loved the location of the hotel and the Aloha Cafe downstairs...my only complaint would be about the daily 'resort fee' that really doesn't include anything more than high speed internet #typically offered free of charge# and beach towels...$20 per day really? Add it into the nightly rate and be done with it. Staff could be a bit more friendly/accomodating. I extended my stay by one night and had to plead with them to keep me in the same room. Overall loved my stay...location, location, location!!
