This is basically a budget hotel. We were first given a tiny room with a really loud noise coming from an exhaust fan outside. We were moved to a more normal sized room, but the noise from outside was still incredibly loud. It felt like we were still on the plane, but it was after midnight and we were exhausted...

We used this location for our yearly office retreat. It was a close walk to many shops and restaurants. It has a fun beach feel. As a local, I would visit this establishment again, just for a weekend getaway....great value!

Pros: -- Great location -- Friendly staff -- Nice lobby -- Paid on-site parking Cons: -- We had a tiny room with no balcony; space was almost too tight to walk between furniture -- Room was also uncomfortably warm, and street was too noisy to open windows -- Mediocre breakfast buffet

Not only was the Aloha Surf close to the action of Waikiki, it was also clean and comfortable. But the best part was the staff who were all courteous and profession. Any request we had was met with a smile and a quick response. Thanks for a great 13 days!
