It probably doesn't need to be said but just in case: if you are not traveling with an active duty or retired service member or a DoD civilian, you can't stay here.
The Hale Koa is an average hotel for the price you are paying. A partial ocean view runs at least 25% lower than the Hilton next door, but the Hale Koa rooms haven't been updated in a long time. They are perfectly functional, but not luxurious. We didn't eat at any of the restaurants, but did try the luau, which was fun. The best part about the Hale Koa, other than the price, is the location right on Waikiki Beach.
Overall this is a great way to make your vacation dollars go further, but don't expect a luxurious mattress, thick sheets, or a premium tiled bathroom.
