Waikiki Resort Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Older hotel, but still nice. Good buffet breakfast. Rooms kinda small, but still fine. There wasn't tons of hot water, but still ok. Big thick nice towels that unfortunately left fuzz and lint on everything they touched. Rooms could use full length mirror. Parking is tight.

I have been coming back to Waikiki Resort Hotel for years. And every year it gets better and better. First, the staff is SUPER nice. They are top notch and treat you like family. The lobby is a pretty open air area. The rooms are spacious and clean. The times I have stayed here I have had the chance to stay in different rooms and all of them have been clean and nice view of beach, city or mountains depending on what you select. I noticed this last time it looked like there was newer carpet in the room. There is a pool, but honestly with the beach just a small block away why would need a pool. Still it is nice to have if you need. As I mentioned, the hotel is one small block from the main street on which you will find the beach, restaurants and shopping. There is a resort fee and a separate self parking fee if you have a car. Both rates are very reasonable! I love this hotel and would recommend to my family and friends. Will keep coming back!

The hotel is close to everything, wish the pool was better with hot tub. I wish they have a bar and grill.

Clean and lots of amenities. There is a pharmacy, local store (they have everything an abc store has and more), atm and bar in the lobby makes the stay very convinient. Parking is 25 a days, always has a parking slot makes it very easy if you rented a car.

We have stayed at the Wiakiki Resort Hotel twice in the last two months. I highly recommend this hotel for its location, staff, cleanliness, and value. This is a great choice for travelers.

Room very noisy because of elevators Sink in bathroom SO SMALL (never saw a sink this small in all hotels in the world), so when you wash your hand or brush your teeth, water splashes all over the floor. Management should replace the sink with a normal one, because there is still space to put the sink

Staff is very polite and accommodating. Rooms are nice and clean, but a bit dated. Beds are very comfortable. Hotel is a block from the beach and convenient walking distance to many attractions. Overall, for the money this is a very good option, and we recommend it over other hotels in the area that we've tried for about the same price. We will stay here again!

Very nice hotel, convenient tonthe beach, shopping restaurants. Clean and friendly staff. We found your concierge Lisa to be very helpful arranging tours.

Hotel is perfectly located. Only a couple of minutes walk to the beach. Decor is a bit dated, but is fine for the price point. Staff are very friendly. Hotel has a pool which we used, and a buffet breakfast which we didn't try. Overall, we had a nice stay and would rate this highly in terms of value for money, given the location of the hotel.

Great location. Wonderful staff! Walking didstance to everywhere. Get a room with a microwave if you are staying a while, helps with food costs. Safe and fridge in room is nice. Clean, and nice balcony. Not the Ritz, but excellent value for the money. Onsite restaurants and amenities are great. Pool is not heated but worked well for us.

This hotel is a gem. It sits one block back from the beach and is close to many shops and restaurants. The price is competitive and the staff truly understand hospitality. The Aloha spirit is alive and well here. We would stay at this property again in a heartbeat.

Not perfect. But inexpensive clean Great location Great staff Nice room

Hotel was close to the beach, but noisy from outside and inside.

This is our third stay at this hotel. We like how close it is to the beach and to shopping. The facilities are nice and the staff is always friendly. We would definitely stay here again!

My only issue was the pool. We wanted to use it but the loungers had old cushions that were stained. It was not welcoming. My family like the beach. I am a pool person.

Construction started early in the morning. There was no sun in the pool area. People at the desk were very helpful, especially Connor.

Awsame stay. Nice dinner at Korean Resturant. Good breakfast. Very curtious and helpful staff. Lighting in the room has been provided by two table lamps and felt bit incomfortable in finding clothes and packing bags.

Staff was great - Dean at front desk was exceptional. Location is perfect for access to Wakiki beach and shopping. Room was clean. Hotel overall is a little dated, but they are upgrading. Rooms are a little smaller than I would have liked. But we did get an ocean view room on the 16th floor, and it was perfect for us.

The room is small total difference than the pictures, we booked and paid for ocean view but we got partial ocean view, no activity to enjoy in the hotel, will not go back again.

And they provided me no other alternative. I had to get an Uber

Diane, Wow, thanks for the glowing review! We really appreciate you taking the time to do that. So you noticed the recent upgrades - we refreshed our rooms to make them better than ever before. And yes, we take a lot of pride in our housekeeping. Cleanliness and comfort are our top priorities. We'd like to think our team is second to none in that regard. Can't wait to see you again!
