Waikiki Gateway Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was very polite and the location was very good. We all enjoyed the breakfast. I heard the hotel had been remodeled but the rooms looked a little worn.

The breakfast is same everyday. The hotel condition is old. They only have valet parking and Parking fee increased. But it is close to the restaurants and rental cars.

The hotel charges 1$ per piece of bag to guests who arrive earlier than the check-in time. This service is usually offered free. The shower was small, and the curtain kept falling off everytime we used the shower. Though they fixed it each time, it was annoying.

Probably the most intolerable hotel experience I've had so far. The staff was friendly, but rarely did anything more than verbally assure that they would provide reasonable services. The worst thing about this hotel, though, was the fact that there's a swimming pool on the 4th Floor. The pool isn't walled off or blocked by a door, it's literally an open access pool at the end of the 4th floor hallway, adjoining the rooms. You can hear every splash, conversation, and passerby. And if that didn't bother you, the maintenance man will gladly bring the noise while cleaning it every morning and night. Overall, this is a good hotel if you're just planning on going out and getting drunk every night and you need a place to crash, but this is not the hotel for a "relaxing vacation".
