My feet hang 7" over the end of the very hard bed that i layed towels down to sleep on because of the dirty conditions of the room. The doors were falling apart it was just dirty and in bad need of upkeep. I know the price meant it needed to be updated not falling apart and filthy.

We've decided to stay there last two night of our 3 weeks hawaii holidays. It is a cheap option, but surely you can get a lot better value for your money in other hotels. When we walked to the reception we were almost scared of the person behind the desk. Very unfriendly... We walked into our room and were in...

the hotel comes more economic than competitors and you get what you pay. The structure is very old, room furnishing is very poor too. The room was very silent however. The hotel is located at the end of Waikiki beach and next to the Zoo. I personally suggest to stay on the other end, in between Waikiki and downtown. Just...

This hotel balanced price, location, and my actual need (which was nothing more than a place to sleep for a one day layover in Honolulu). I would not choose the room I was in for an actual vacation. The hotel, and the room I was in, were well worn. It could use considerable updating ... but that needs to be...

Amazing staff, very friendly and helpful, hotel is old but very clean and very good location, two steps to Honolulu Zoo and next door to the beach. Good value for a money.

I booked the hotel because all I needed was an overnight stay after major wine dinner (didn't want to risk driving "under the influence"). For less than $100 (including parking and taxes), the Ewa Hotel provides clean rooms and good service. They don't have a lot of frills (the room keys are still keys, not electronic cards) and room service...

Stayed for 10 nights at end of a 9 week USA tour. Excellent location for the price just 2 short blocks from the front at the quieter end of Wakikki. Major, noisier end less than 10 minute walk away. Major bus routes (we used - 20,22 and 47 ) very near and cheap. Reception helpful but not overtly friendly. Bedroom...

Located in a side street in the quieter end of Wakiki Beach (Diamond Head) and is convenient for the beach the zoo and public transport. Parking for a fee is available. This hotel is clean, comfortable, although the rooms are somewhat on the small size. The airconditioning unit was directly above the bed which resulted in water occasionally dropping on...

I walked down a dimly lit corridor on my way to room 301 on my recent stay. I passed a mysterious stain in front of room 310. I booked the cheapest room I could find at the Ewa Hotel. It's a little old but the staff is friendly and its a good value. They have free wifi in the rooms...

We stayed here for a week. I would stay here again and I would recommend to stay those who are looking for the budget hotel. We rented a studio superior room. Here's the breakdown of Pros and cons: Cons: -The burners were too slow. Pros: -Great location, a block from Waikiki beaches, shops, and restaurants. -The bed was very comfortable....
