This is an old hotel that has been refurbished. We had a fantastic room with a large balcony, great view and in-room fridge, stove, microwave and sink. Very clean, lots of space, helpful staff. We had a generally wonderful experience. It sits about three blocks from the beach. With free internet and free parking we saved money by staying there.

We spent the first part of our Hawaiian vacation at the Ilima. Large Room, full kitchen, King sized bed (ask for it). This is a no frills establishment... there is no in-house restaurant, the decor is dated and the pool small. The free parking is a big bonus but is sometimes full, make sure you are back a liitle earlier...

This hotel is NOT the Ritz, but it also costs a fraction of the price. The rate was very affordable and we received a large room with a nice kitchenette, balcony with a great view, and a comfortable bed. Honestly the place was larger and quieter with a better view than my timeshare I had for the rest of the...

We came here for a conference/vacation. The rooms are HUGE, the front desk staff will go out of their way to help you, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay. The location is one block from the beach and across the road from the International Market - where we had all our dinners. There is a grocery...

Excellent front desk staff - friendly and helpful! Wonderful view from room/balcony, looking at the Ala Wai Canal and Mountains. Wow! Friendly maid service. A close walk to everything - eg. Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, Waikiki Beach, restaurants, etc. Picked up at front door by tour bus to Dole Plantation. Could go on and on about how great this vacation...

IIlima was a departure point for our day trips to Hanauma, Koko Crater, Diamand Head, Kailua beach, Peral Harbor etc., it is not a resort for lounging around. It is two blocks from the beach, and 1 block from the international market place. We had the deluxe studio unit, very large, kitchen, and our view faced the Ala Wai Canal,...

Had a great time at the hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary. Everything was done just right and it was neat and clean. They had a lot of free extras for the price as already mentioned in previous reviews. Like free parking, internet access, pool, kitchenette, a pitcher of cold water in the fridge when we got there. These things...

We stayed at the Ilima in Feb 2011 for seven nights. This is an older hotel but, for the most part, is nicely maintained. The staff at the desk were very helpful and always friendly as were the housekeeping staff. The rooms are large (550 sq ft) and have kitchenettes and lanais with two chairs. We had two queen beds,...
