Waikiki Resort Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

Staff was excellent at check in. My wife and I loved the location of this hotel. Great variety of restaurants, shops, plus the beach all within easy walking distance. On our last visit to Honolulu we stayed at Hilton Hawaiian Village at twice the cost. I would stay at the Waikiki Resort Hotel over the Hilton even if the prices were equal.

Great location, however, this hotel caters to Koreans and mostly Asians. Nothing wrong with that of course, but would like to think a hotel in downtown Waikiki would have more Hawaiian culture and be more balanced on its position to clients I rate this hotel a 2.8 out of 5 (location is great)

Wonderful staff! Hotel was great and only a quick walk to the beach!

Room was a little small for four people, (including 2 teenagers, however was adequate. Pool was very nice. close to the beach.

Loved the service,very knowledgeable and courteous.

Friendly and helpful front desk staff but the carpets, rooms need updating. There is also an extra 15 USD amenities charge that they add that was not listed in the reservation.

Nice, decent hotel, close to the beach. Staff seemed friendly. Housekeeping was great. Whatever you need they will help you with, including recommending places to go. Everything is close by. The location of the hotel is convenient, you can go to the beach, zoo, or just go check out the restaurants. Overall, nice experience.

There was always someone to help. Housekeeping didnt bother you if you decided to go a day without having your room done.

Room pictures is not like what I see you posted.. the room is small and noise from construction. My kids and also myself can't sleep

It was fine. Only stayed a night. Clean a block from the beach. Mcdonalds 1/2 block from the front. A convenient spot.

I love this hotel. The location is super convenient to the beach and shopping and the staff is amazing. The open air lobby is beautiful and the rooms are spacious and clean. They do offer parking so if you have a rental it's easier to have a spot. The hotel has a pool but being so close to the beach you really don't need it. They have so many great amenites right on hand. I have to say the staff really makes the difference. Brandon and the rest of the staff are amazing!

The Staff went out of their way to make my stay excellent. The hotel is one block from the best beach on planet earth!!! The hotel had everything I need. I was very happy. I would say that there is an extra fee per day. The hotel breakfast is fantastic but it is not included in the daily fee. The carpets were old and there is a lot of street noise. That didn't stop me from having an excellent experience. The city view was way better than I expected on the upper floors you can see the mountains and sunrise!!!

We had a great experience at the hotel. We have a toddler and our first room had a small stand up shower. I was debating whether to see if we could change rooms or not and before I called, the assistant manager called me to see if everything was okay. I told him the issue and the same day was able to change rooms for us. The all of the staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that was a "negative" would be that the hotel is a little outdated. The location is great! A 2 min walk to the beach and all of the Waikiki restaurants and shopping centers are very close. We will definitely stay here again due to the courteous staff and location.
