I stayed in this hotel for 10 nights to attend a conference. The room (partial city view) was congested. There was no spoon provided to make tea or coffee or eat breakfast. When I requested for a spoon, I was not given one. I had to buy a packet of plastic cutlery. No tea bags were provided. When I asked...

Aloha Aucki, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your stay with us in November 2009. You referred to a situation where your alarm clock was missing from your room and later returned. My understanding is that the one that was in your room was found to be not working properly by the room attendant and...

This is a smaller hotel with easy access to Waikiki Beach, a number of reasonably priced restaurants, and shopping opportunities. The room was larger than other hotel rooms in the area and was equipped with refrigerator, microwave, and free high speed internet access. The hotel is obviously older and could do with a bit of a facelift (the hall carpets...

I had some concerns after reading all of the posts, but decided to book anyway –every hotel I looked up had supporters and detractors. Our stay was from Oct.17-25, 2009. This was a great value for the dollar. The rooms were small but we weren't there very often. King-size bed, bigger refrigerator than we expected, microwave, iron and board, hair...

The redeeming quality of this hotel is that it's cheap. I was in Honolulu for a conference, and this was one of the cheaper hotels near the convention center - about a 7 min walk (same distance to beach). I didn't find the location to be that great but not terrible either. The main problem though was the uneven service...

If you are planning to go to Hawaii and want a hotel, this really is not the one. It was ok. If your deciding factor is the "continental breakfast" donot even bother. Although the breakfast is provided by an IHOP(International House of Pancakes) it is very measly and not done well at all. The hotel staff were very nice, informative...

I stayed over a year ago and haven't had the time to write a review. I just want to say that this was the best surprise of our stay in Oahu.

My dad and I stayed for two weeks at the Aqua Palms. We found the service to be outstanding, for the most part. The hotel's price was very low, and they accomodated us even watching our room for us when we went camping for a few days. Their hotel manager was especially excellent and always friendly. We would highly recommend...

Stayed at the Aqua Palms in sept. 2009 for 5 nights during our honeymoon. I think it is a pretty nice play to stay and really gave us the Aloha feeling upon arriving at Hawaii.
