Pagoda used to be the hotel of choice for kamaaina's visiting from another island, but it was beginning to show its age. Now under new ownership and management, it is really a great place to stay. I hear they are still making more modernization changes, which will be great. For the price, it is a great value, and I rather...

Happy to report that the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu is a great bargain. We stayed in a deluxe room which had been recently renovated . It was clean and well appointed with coffee maker,microwave, toaster, refrigerator ,and even a safe! The rates were very reasonable and the staff was hospitable and efficient. We will return!

The Pagoda is truly "no ka oi" (the best!) place to stay on Oahu. The Pagoda ohana radiates the Aloha spirit through its welcoming, friendly, humble, responsive and kind ways.

This review is for the pagoda terrace only. I stayed here for two weeks because it was near the medical center where I was being seen.

I recently returned to the Pagoda Hotel for a brief stay while in Honolulu. Although it's not a luxurious hotel, I found the familiarity comforting...
