Hotel Recommendations Please

Hi I am after some hotel recommendations please for 2 adults late-20s on first trip to Hawaii - 13nights end of November to Early December. Ideally would like either all the trip or one half of the trip to have an ocean view, even if that is just partial ocean view. Would like to be fairly close to the beach and lots of restaurants. A pool is a must however doesn't need to be fancy. Budget at this stage would be approx 250USD before any taxes or resort fees. Any reccomendations would be great so I can check them out. Thankyou

Welcome! So are you planning to only stay on Oahu, or are you interested in seeing two islands?

Planning on just Oahu. Am thinking all at Waikiki but will probably do some research to see if another spot on the island would be ideal for a few days

You will find something in the price range but it will be a couple of blocks from the beach and more than likely no ocean view. You will need to arrive and depart from Oahu so keep that in mind. The 22nd of November is a USA holiday so that whole weekend will be very busy and prices might be higher.

Hotels only? Or would you consider condo rentals?

For a hotel, take a look at the Waikiki Sand Villa. No ocean view, but nice views of the canal and the Koʻolau mountains. Excellent pool!

Save on this one, splurge a bit on the other one??

Hi!

If you scroll down this Forum (Island of Oahu) and read through the posts ... maybe a month's worth ... you'll see that we talk about accommodations constantly. There is a ton of great information right here ... and it includes info about activities and restaurants as well. So scroll down and take a look at the questions and the answers. And the trip reports are very helpful as well.

Note that Oahu's Top Questions are off to the right-hand side of the screen.

Will you rent a car?? With 13 nights, you may want to spend a few on another part of the Island. There aren't many hotels/resorts outside of Waikiki/Honolulu - but it's a great way to see the Island. Oahu is generally rural - and it is gorgeous.

Yep will definitely be hiring a car to explore more. Probably not for the whole 2 weeks but for at least a couple of days.

Check out the private condos at The Ilikai Hotel booked through waikikibeachrentals.com. Ocean views, pool and less than 5 minutes walk to beach. Popular with budget conscious Aussies who want an Ocean view.

No POOL sorry but check out Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel, 50 yards from the beach 75% of the rooms have ocean views and the middle are Ocean Front. I love this hotel for the money, in the middle of everything, the balconies are awesome. This place is super clean, the staff is amazing, free ocean toys, boards, towels, free DVD rentals for late night, PS3 in every room.

For the money this is MY favorite place to stay, and they will beat any online price you find. Check it out

Check the Ilikai, Aston Waikiki Banyan and Aston Waikiki Sunset. You can also get the last two through Koko Resorts. These are all condos, which would be my preference for a 12-13 night stay. Having a washer/dryer lets you pack fewer clothes.
