Location is greatest attraction

We had stayed here twice before way back in 1995 and 1996, so I was happy to book it again for the memories, assuming it must have been upgraded since then. The rooms were comfortable, but halls and room appearance were somewhat run-down looking and breakfast buffet was not in line with price. Also, valet parking cost extra $10/day. But location is undeniably great, and staff were very friendly and helpful.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Cheeseburger Waikiki down the road (at corner of Kalakaua and Ala Moana) has a breakfast special for $5.99 (unmatched price - even at McDs): eggs, hashbrowns, toast & unlimited coffee included. But all other breakfasts are about $10.

Not a clean place

The building was old and noisy as expected since I knew ahead of time that it was a cheaper hotel. What I was disappointed and disgusted about was how unclean the place was. The toilet bowl had dirty spots and the bathtub looked needing another round of scrubbing. When I called the front desk and asked for a different room, the reply was that it was the only room available. I chose not to fight because it passed 11pm already. I saw two cockroaches in the bathroom in the morning.

Gateway Hotel Review in Waikiki

It was an overall mediocre experience. The hotel was above my original party which was convenient. The staff did not greet me as I waited in the lobby but once they found out I was checking in they were very pleasant and courteous. The television was the worst amenity as it was fuzzy on just about every channel. The ice machine was very good but I had to inquire with the front desk on it's whereabouts. I miss having a tub and enjoyed soaking in it.
