The property is very noisy in the morning from all the road traffic. There is no housekeeping offered and the condition of the room and bedding doesn’t justify the cost. Parking is an additional $28 per night. Overall, a very average experience for the price that we paid. If I return to the island for another visit, I won’t be staying here again.

Parking sucked, door lock was broken, trash in hallways and stairwell, elevators small, staff in knowledgeable, bugs in room, rusty and old and construction outside.

The staff

Horrible staff! Didn’t get room service even when asked for it and had to fix ac myself. Complained about loud neighbors multiple times.

Everything was great ! I’d recommend if you are not looking for something luxurious decent hotel with all the necessary

Free breakfast was great to have, but food was mediocre. Convenient location but construction work next door woke us up every morning at 7am

The rooms were very dirty the beds were worn out the free continental breakfast was unedible and disgusting

Meets basic qualifications for a hotel: meaning there was a Room with a bed. Bed, however, had hole in mattress, black mold all over shower and toilet backed up into shower when flushed. In a pinch or on a tight budget, there is a bed to sleep in. But If it can be avoided, steer clear! Robert, on a bright note, made the stay enjoyable.

Convenient - cost for parking is nuts - but convenient!

The front staff was always very nice. They informed us of the Pearl Harbor Day parade which we attended in the evening December 7. The housekeeping staff was friendly and checked on our needs. The coconut shampoo and shower gel was great and smelled great.

Good location easy to find staff nice bathroom not so Great Wall paper pull away from windows carpet very old dirty Loki g

Proximity to Waikiki shopping and beach is excellent. Breakfast each morning is a plus. Front staff was not all super friendly. Concierge service was spotty & not always available. Breakfast catered mostly to Japanese tastes and was not available longer. Should have been open to at least 10 am. Decent value.

The property has definitely seen better days. Age and lack of proper maintenance have certainly taken their toll. The staff was a bright spot but the biggest disappointment was getting hit with hidden "amenity" charges that would have easily had me staying at the Marriott Courtyard down the street instead. The free breakfast was just plain weird - fried rice, cabbage? And no orange juice?

Aloha, Mahalo for taking the time to share your recent experience at the Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the challenges you encountered during your stay. Being in a big city we do get the street and traffic noise. Despite the above the staff and management hope you could take home fond memories of your stay in Hawaii and will give us another opportunity to regain your valued patronage.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay at the Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki. Part of our new business model is a change in housekeeping service. We do check out cleaning only, as opposed to daily housekeeping service. We do our best to ensure that our guests are aware of this housekeeping policy when they book their reservations. I am sorry this was not made clear to you when you made your reservation. We do offer to pick up trash from outside the guests door. We ask guests to give us a call at the front desk and then place their trash bag outside their door and we will pick it up. We also offer an exchange of towels and linen upon request. I apologize that this policy was not communicated to you properly when you booked with Expedia. We ensure our travel partners are fully aware of our policies. Unfortunately we failed to accomplish that for you. I apologize for that. Mahalo and a hui hou (until next time)!
