After much research for a hotel for my Hawaii trip, I went with Ilima after seeing consistently good reviews on this website and others. It was the only one that was constantly highly rated and within my price range. The service was good. We were greeted upon our arrival and taken care of immediately. Booked the room through Expedia and...

Nice quiet hotel friendly helpful staff, clean large rooms, close to everything but away from the crowds and noise. 1/2 block to international market, 1 block to worlds best high end shopping, 2 blocks to beach, across the street fron car rental, best value around and RARE free parking! When in Hawaii I spend little time in hotel sleep, shower,...

I have stayed at the Ilima Hotel about 15 times in the last two years and I think it is the best value in Waikiki. Rooms are huge with kitchen and microwave. Location is between Kuhio Ave. and Ala Wai Blvd. so its a few minutes walk to the International Market Place. Limited free parking available at the hotel. Only...

Last Nov. my husband and I stayed here on our own and thought it re great so decided to take our friends here when we returned in June this year. We booked the 2 bedroom suite this time. The suite was a tiny bit small and it only had one bathroom which was a bit of a nuisance when travelling...

We picked this hotel because of previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. This hotel is 4-5 minutes from the beach, clean, fairly modern, and is an excellent value. Their staff is friendly and helpful. This hotel may only be a 2 - 2 1/2 star, but it seemed like a 4 star hotel, just not very fancy but with everything...

Stayed here with my 11 and 15 y/o sons during a 2 night stay in Waikiki. Large room with internet access, beautiful views from the lanai of canal and mountains, with rainbows almost daily. We had breakfast and dinner in the room each day because the boys were tired/jet lagged. Full kitchen and everything you need. Some of the decor...

Loved this hotel. Travelers on a budget, but also wanted a nice stay. Yes, the decor isn't the latest, but it was clean. That was my main concern going to a place I've never been. Didn't see one bug, not even in the kitchen. We loved the free parking, the kitchen was perfectly equipped and the room is huge. Oh,...

Why pay an arm and a leg for a "5-star" hotel room and only spend the night sleeping in it? The ilima Hotel offers everything I want in a hotel at half the price a "5-star"hotel in Waikiki charges. I spent 4 nights in April 2010 at ilima in room #502. The room was clean and spacious. Free high speed...

Good location, good amenities in our room, a little used, and very nice desk staff. Free parking too. Good price for what we wanted. The parking was also a key feature for us. Multi level with easy access to the elevators. We stayed here so that we would have a small kitchen in our room. Large fridge, microwave, stovetop, kitchen...
