Single man point of view

The hotel staff was very friendly and willing to help with anything I needed. The room was a suite and very roomy and welcoming to come back to. The room however had a few small things that should have be addressed. One being two of the lamps had dead light bulbs that needed to be replace. I had plenty of light, so I never called the staff to replace them. I felt safe and secure in my room and I had even left money on my dresser and never lost a dime. I would gladly stay at the Waikiki hotel again, friendly staff and I loved the open air of the lobby, it seemed so Hawaiian there!!! Thanks for a wonderful time in your lovely hotel, to all the staff at The Waikiki hotel!!!! Aloha !!!!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The concierge desk and staff were very helpful, and great time savers. From the Waikiki hotel, the location couldn't be better. You are just foot steps away from Waikiki beach and all it's wonderful shopping experience, and with out having it right in your face when you leave your hotel!!!!!!!!

For the budget conscious traveler

The Waikiki Resort is the perfect hotel for the budget conscious traveler. I stayed for 2 nights and was happy to see the hotel located in the heart of Waikiki, about 2 blocks from the ocean. I will certainly return again.

close to the beach...good price

The hotel was very close to the beach (1 block) and in a great location. I enjoyed the rooms...very clean. The bathroom was REALLY small and the noise from the trucks on the street at 7am were a daily annoyance. I bought ear plugs and slept better. For the closeness to the beach at the price - very worth it. Did not eat at any of the hotel restaurants. Plenty of other good places to eat near the hotel.

Very pleased

This hotel was well run, very friendly and helpful, and excellent value for money. We would stay there again (if the price continues to be right). We stayed a far more expensive hotel going to Australia and this was much better.
