I was dubious about staying here, but decided to give it a go based on price. It was $500 cheaper than my original choice for the duration of my stay and that was a huge factor. Looking at Expedia and booking.com as well as TripAdvisor, there are a whole lot of different rooms and it would appear that the reviews...

The room pictures presented are non exhistant. We checked into a room we referred to as a "closet",it had slats for windows to allow every noise in and a light outside that shone so brightly you literally didn't need to use inside lighting. The next morning we complained about the accomodations the clerk was apologetic as she stated it's not...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in April 2016 for two nights. We simply wanted a low cost (but safe) place to stay close to Waikiki Beach before heading off to spend the majority of our vacation on the North Shore, and the Stay Hotel was an ideal spot! The best part about this hotel was the location!...

A great place to stay, close to the beach and other amenities. The room was clean and fresh and staff that are friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to budget conscience travellers and would definitely stay there again.

First of all, the location is 5 minutes from Waikiki Beach, which is great. The staff were also super friendly every time I talked to them. However the hotel itself is not great. There is a karaoke bar in the first floor of the hotel that's open till 2 am, so it's super noisy if you're trying to sleep on...

We were four people on holiday, and whilst the hotel is obviously not 5 star we did not pay 5 star prices. The Hotel is clean, comfortable, and extremely well situated. The staff were very helpful, and arranged whatever we requested. We had no complaints whatsoever

The Stay Hotel is a great basic level hotel, close to the beach and is clean and has fantastic staff. Having read many of the reviews I appreciate that this hotel does not claim to be 5* and we also chose not to raise of the concerns with management during our stay. There are many positives to this hotel so...

The Stay does not claim to be a 5 star resort and it isn't. But it is in a great location and all the staff were helpfull and friendly. They provide a grab and go box for breakfast which while not enough for a grown man was better than nothing. Great hotel clean,safe and value for money.
