We stayed at this hotel as a beginning to move to Oahu. We were refugees of Hurricane Irma in the Virgin Islands and were trying to find housing in the area. This hotel needs a lot of work. The rooms are in disrepair and the carpets are filthy. However the staff does their best with what they have. Our first room was unacceptable and we told Doug at the front desk. He is one of the nicest, warmest and friendliest people we have ever met! He upgraded us to a larger room with a bigger refrigerator knowing the situation we were in. David and Katheryn were also very sweet and helpful. Doug's attitude and compassion allowed us to stay at the white sands a few extra days until we found an apartment. When this hotel completes the renovations I would strongly advise staying with them! They are let friendly and it is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. But take out those rugs!!! Thank you to the staff for helping us out. They will never know how much it helped!

First impression when greeted by front desk David... WOW. Friendly and most welcoming to arrive at the White Sands Hotel.
Location is so quiet and close to the hub of supermarket , ABC stores, shopping and the beach.
The room was spacious and clean. Older style hotel without the noise of too many guests surrounding your privacy.
I believe this hotel has the best staff in Waikiki and Doug the Manager should be so proud if his team
Mahalo White Sands Hotel.
See you again soon!!!

It’s a no frills quaint hotel,staff will help you,rooms are clean we will definitely stay here again ,for the price and location it’s a winner.

Beatiful hotel. Near EVERYTHING. Just two blocks from the Waikiki Beach, one block from all the malls and shopping centres. We got a room with kitchenette, so really helpful to press down the budget. We can cook there, reheat our meal there, so great.

They also have a dvd rental (for free - included in the room), with a great deal of movies (and PS3 games as well). The check in and check out is really easy. The receptions are very friendly, they always greeted us.

No Wifi in the room but there's a very good wifi in common areas.

But there is one issue (and hasn't been resolved yet until I wrote this review). My credit card is charged for unknown expenses from this hotel. I've called the hotel and they say they will respond in 2 business days. Let's see how they manage this issue. Will give 5 stars if the issue resolve thou.

Room Tip: There was no elevator (in my side of the building), so be prepared to take one or two flights of stairs carrying you luggages.

This hotel located center of Waikiki. Walking distance to go beach, shopping and restaurants. Good for people who wants to save money but convince. Staffs are friendly and nice. Many good points.

I just didn’t like this building. Very old. A lots of ants in the room. A closet in the bathroom. I was happy just stayed there one night.
