The good, the bad and the really ugly

No extras, like boogie boards, beach chairs, or umbrellas to borrow. Very small rooms and lanais.

Hotel stay at the Waikiki Sands Villa

First of all there were hidden fees that we hadn't planned on like a hotel deposit and another fee to park your vehicle on the primisses. The room had a strange odor that aggrivated my sinuses, a double bed instead of queen and a who sleeps in a twin bed anyway. The double bed made rest very unpleasant and we didn't want to separate and sleep in a twin bed. WHO WOULD????? There was no hand soap, but a dispencer, the towels were hard,the only way to keep the air on was to leave the keycard in a slot next to the thermometer and the water from the overhead vent leaked on our head. The staff was accomodating and friendly but people should know these things and I did leave a review for the hotel.

service is just so so ...

They scratch my car and denied to admit that. The low-number stories are so noisy from some machine nearby. The beds are so small and soft, very uncomfortable.

In general OK, but expect better

Location is good, staff are friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is below average: just toast, orange juice and canned pineapple pieces. Valet parking is $20/night. Rooms not in the tower are near the pool, expects big noise if there is a party or energetic kids. Rooms are not very clean. If you think the location (close to wakiki) is very important, it is an acceptable choice.

Basic hotel on very good location

Location of this hotel is very good to explore Waikiki. The beach is within walking distance. Hotel needs better managment. Personel is obviously not happy, lots of discussions between staff. Included braekfast is just ridiculous and a ripoff. We didn't have electricity in the bathroom and We had to make complaints 3 times and it took 3 days before someone came to fix it. Room on the other hand was streetside and yet relatively calm with a nice terrace. Personel told us the lease for the building was ending and so the owner was just trying to make as much money as possible for the time the lease was running. This was showing...

Aloha

The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the beds were hard, the a/c never got cold even after they came and supposedly fixed it. It was in a good location not far to walk to everything. The great thing is they would hold your luggage before check in time and after check out time so you could do things. Overall, not to bad for the price.

Close in, but not clean

The hotel was much dirtier than we imagined. The carpet and walls were filthy and the bed sagged in the middle. It was close to the main shopping area if you like that.

Business trip

I stayed at the Waikiki Sand Villa for an overnight business training. I checked in late and was shocked to see 3 twin beds at knee level. All three were hard as a rock.
