A very nice hotel with a great location. I was staying there for 2 nights and really enjoyed my time. The hotel was quite cheap compared to the other places I stayed at. The only bad thing was that the internet did not work at all and nobody fixed it.

Polynesian : We stayed at Polynesian for 8 nights and everything was fantastic. Staff very friendly and helpful, room absolutely clean, including the carpet which usually is a problem once hotels don't use to wash them. When we got the room the carpet had just been cleaned and was smelling very good! They clean the room once a day, so...

Hotel was quite old, and the interior is a bit dated. But the staff are lovely and very helpful. The internet connection is pretty unreliable and frustrating at times but it's free so I guess you can't complain. Located only a block from the beach and it's right in the middle of heaps of shops and restaurants. Overall and nice...

This hotel is really a hole in the wall. Drove past the entrance 3 times before we found it. The rooms were small along with everything else. The AC barely worked, the toilet was right against the wall and door, the elevators were small, and the staff was friendly, but not very knowledgeable.

I booked my room over a month in advance and when I arrived, they had no rooms available. Nobody from the hotel ever decided to contact me before I arrived that they overbooked. The front desk person didn't know what to do and after over two hours of waiting they finally put me into another hotel. All of the rooms...

What a score! I couldn't have been happier with my choice, having never been to the Wakiki area. Booked the room on Hotels.com for $109 a night. ( 2 queen beds+kitchenette) It was clean, they have staff 24° a day, washer and dryer on every floor, A/c, pool, lounge deck. BEST PART is the location. It's right next to the...

We were travelling with friends. We wanted to show them a great holiday without blowing all our budgets. This place I recommend. It isn't the hilton! BUT...beds are comfortable, we had a balcony with street view of an evening we sat out there had a few drinks. It was roomy. The kitchen is old but fully equipped, the bathroom is...

Hotel is generally average.. Abit outdated but considering the low prices you do get what you pay for. There's a kitchenette which is convenient but location is amazing heart of waikiki definitely walking distance from everything! Staff are lovely.

Worst hotel ever: CONS: No parking Public parking is $20 dollars away one block away. Do NOT park at the post office because even if you pay for a whole day you can still loose your spot if you leave your paking spot to go to the store or what not. No room wifi - that is an additional $12...

Really hard to find and no one seemed to know where it was. There is just a little door with the name overtop. We kept driving past it until we finally spotted the door. I guess for the price in the Waikekee area, it was cheap. Little shabby. Beach is two minutes away. I would have to real think about...
