"Nice People, Run down building."
I was surprised with how little you get for the cost. The building is probably from the 1970s and is structurally unchanged including windows and doors , sinks, showers and walls. It resembles an old motel or apartment complex. The main updates would be the painted cement walls, the synthetic hardwood floor in the bathroom, the small glass shelf / […] light fixture in the bathroom, and the white theme furniture. For the discount rate I paid, I would still expect something nicer. This is more like a college vacay /student apartment... And when I was younger I would have been happy to stay here... for a lot a cheaper. I have seen a couple of small bugs, but this is not surprising given that the doors and non-sealing windows open directly to the outside world. They have free wifi, but it is very slow and inconsistent. I was using my cell phone to tether wifi to my laptop. That deadbolt on my door did not work. This would not be acceptable if I were here with my wife and child. The elevator went out. If this were a one time occurrence, I can understand. However, it seems that it is a frequent occurrence based on other reviews. The continental breakfast was ok. Nothing great and nothing to complain about. Paper plates and plastic spoons. All in all, it feels more like a hostel than a hotel. It would be perfectly fine if marketing and prices were adjusted accordingly. Finally, i should mention that the people have all been very nice.

"No stay at STAY!!!"
Terrible rooms. Dirty, old, loud, broken windows, bad lighting, bad beds, no hotel parkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for low maintenance travelers!"
This place reminded me of my college dorm, minus the bar in the downstairs lobby. The bunk beds were comfy enough, free wifi was good, and the staff were friendly. It's not the Mariott or the Hyatt, but it's a good enough place to rest your head. Although the hotel has limited parking ($25), there's a public parking structure nearby for $15 (max 10 […] hours, though). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
If you are looking for an inexpensive room to merely sleep in, this is your place. Expect an odd $10 per day amenity charge for wifi and a paltry "continental breakfast". And then another $25 a day for parking. Also it is close to the water so expect some crawling friends at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just what I needed!"
This hotel was perfectly located close to the beach, shopping, dining, and excursion pick ups. Small, quaint, and charming! I did use earplugs every night as the street gets noisy early, and the downstairs bar throws out their glass bottles all hours of the night - every night. I was on the 6th floor and my view was pretty good, considering I didn't […] want to pay for a high price, beachfront, swanky hotel. I'd stay here again on my next visit! Great value for the price!

"Close to the beach"
Elevator broke twice. Not good when your on the 6th floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not at this price"
I don't mind paying $198.00+ for a room if it didn't have roaches in it. I do like Boutique Hotels, but this one was too cold of a feeling in the room for me. I Would not be staying here again, at least not at this price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
The staff was very friendly. The room was not quite as depicted, very cheaply put together. The hotel is located on a very noisy street/alley. If you're not spending much time in the room and you can sleep through loud street noise then this is the place for you. You get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was a very basic room. There was no view. It's location is in a perfect spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Waikiki location one block from beach."
Stay Waikiki has a very friendly staff. The lobby is cool and modern. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are old and very small. For the price it's the best value in Waikiki.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, People, Price, Atmosphere, Awesome!"
Fantastic! Phyllis, Stacey and Giovanni took particularly good care of me on my one week business trip. I had half a dozen packages arrive a few days before me and they took care of everything. One block from the beach! Gorgeous! Breakfast, Internet and a cozy atmosphere. It's not the Ritz to some people but it was to me. The people and the location […] made all the difference. For the price, it can't be beat. I would recommend Stay Hotel in Waikiki to most folks. If you are a stuffy traveler, this is not the place for you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was ok"
Front desk very nice. The actual room wasn't all that greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Cost to much for what they offer charge for everythingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent but definitely not a 3-star hotel."
Very overpriced. We were charged additional fees on top of the reservation fees. Also, parking was very expensive (over $20/night) and we had to park far away. Manager was never onsite, even though I tried to ask for him/her several times throughout the 3-night stay. The room looks like a clean version of a 1-star hotel. No way this is a 3-star hotel. […] Location was pretty legit though. Otherwise, if you can pay half the price for a 1-star hotel - by all means. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value and 1 block from the beach"
Overall, it was great - hotel was quiet, excellent location and clean. It's not super fancy but great for single travelers or small groups.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not bad, not bad at all. Will return, will worth what you pay for. Close to all the good places. Everything is in walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you plan on going to Waikiki and staying in your room don't go here!!! Matter of fact stay home! This hotel is the true wiakiki experience. Great room, balcony, and staff!!! Perfect to party all day and night! Step out front and go either direction and you will find anything your looking for! The true old Hawaii experience! I will stay there again! […] I'm gonna book another room very soon! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Condition of the hotel building and elevator is poor. The facility is rundown with old Ikea furnishings. Even the towels are very worn. Coffee and continental breakfast ran out early and frequently.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for."
You get what you pay for with Real Estate. Reality is that this Hotel is priced well and offers a tremendously amount of value for that price. However, you get what you pay for with Real Estate and this Hotel's elbow room is as large as it's price. Overall, comfortable 2 night stay and recommend this Hotel for you Single Occupant, over-nighters with […] an economy rental car to fit in it's really, really small parking garage. Oh, and somebody tried to do renovations. I give credit for that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
outside of the first stay regards to wrong key issue…second stay this year is just as good as the first…the front desk , maintenance, housekeeping excellent service…third stay this year coming around the corner with a friend from japan… i really like the family setting and convenience to beach, bus stop and shopping markets. also good food /restaurants […] . i recommend STAY WAIKIKI to all who visits Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"small rooms - website pics misleading"
The rooms were extremely small, had to change rooms due to TV not working and upgraded to a slightly bigger room. Smaller room had a refrigerator but the larger one did not. Did not know there were tiled floors, expecting carpet. Staff was nice and very accommodating. Website advertised a complimentary breakfast but we were charged a $10+ convenience […] fee for coffee and pastries. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel.....Lousy, frustrating reservations"
It's a shame that all of the drama involved with the reservation/billing portion cast such a dark negative, STRESSFULL shadow over my entire stay! In fact, it made my stay miserable! I've always (since u opened) recommended Stay....to anybody and everybody that was even thinking about a room! Unless this problem is rectified....I will NOT be back (along […] with everybody I can warn ) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wanna Be Boutique Hotel"
The room was clean and location close to main area. Rooms are small and the area has a feel of an upscale youth hostel. It was clean, there was no chair in the room and had added decor that was geared towards the boutique style but minimally so. Check in was not until 4pm which seemed quite late. The shower faucets turned in opposite directions and […] at one point we could not get the water to shut off. Lastly , parking is a challenge. Upon arrival there was no parking and we had to wait for a spot to open up in the overflow garage. I am a local here on Oahu and next time I'll spend a bit more and stay across the street at the Hyatt for sure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Good.., Just what I expected..."
I read all the reviews for this hotel before I reserved my room and i got what I expected. The room was small but clean. The bathroom was beyond tiny. You could use the bathroom toilet and wash your hands in the sink at the same time (they are 3 inches apart). In the room there was one small particle board dresser in it that was in poor shape due to […] the humidity causing the particle board wood to swell. I was forced to use the dresser for a desk and use a plastic chair off the balcony as a seat. The outside street noise was very bad but mostly was drowned out by the window A/C unit that had to be ran at high in order to cool the room. The location is great and its the lowest price hotel in the area but I would never stay there again. I am just happy that I didn't bring a friend to share the room because I would be so embarrassed of the room. Spend the extra money and get a better hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This place is joke"
The rooms were disgusting. Rude front desk people look and talk to you like your an idiot. Not worth it all, photos online do not look like that in person. Avoid going to their hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place Great location great staff"
When I go to Hawaii HNL I love the Stay hotel it's at a great location and the staff are always great to deal with. The rooms are sparse but the bed is comfortable. Great price!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and restraunt"
Walkable distance to the beach (about 2 blocks). Friendly staff and clean rooms. There is a farmer market right next to the hotel which is convenient for me to buy fresh fruits. Overall good experience except for the wi-fi issue. Bad connectivity.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location of this hotel really is good, a block away from the beach so it's nearby yet you're not right on the main drag. Basic, no-thrills hotel. The "Hawaii Five-O" filming in front of the hotel would have been really annoying had the two stars not been so pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Save a bunch on this hotel"
Stayed for 6 days, not a lot of time spent in the room, for good reason.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to everything."
The pictures on the website make it look much nicer. We stayed one night and were only in the room from about 9pm-6am - enough time to sleep. It reminds me of an old dorm room. I dont remember what we paid but i know it was cheaper than surrounding hotels. If you are looking for a place to stay and close to everything but dont want to pay the higher […] rates you can give it a try. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very disappointed with this hotel. The beds were made of cheap plywood with exposed edges. The headboard was a plastic sign on the wall. It was noisy. The only view is of other cheap hotel. If I wasn't so tired when I got there I would have just left and found another hotel. Thankfully, I only stayed there one night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel closed to the beach"
The room was different then what I saw on the websiteGenuine Expedia guest review

They cleaned our room everyday and perfectly. Also the staff was so nice and friendly. We stayed at 7flore and the view was so nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okay if you got a good deal"
We stayed July 3 since we had a partial credit towards a free night. Rates were higher because of the holiday, so we had to pay more than I thought it was worth. The Sway restaurant that looked great in pictures was closed, under renovation. Our key card didn't work so it took 3 trips back to the front desk. The poor lady at reception had the phone […] ringing off the hook yet remained very pleasant. The room was fine, obviously a former old apartment building but decor was fresh and the room was spotless. Parking was very limited so we had to park down the street in overflow parking. The continental breakfast was decent. All in all, a nice stay but had we paid usual (non holiday) rates I would've felt more like the experience was worth the price.

Response by Stay Hotel Waikiki Aloha! We hope you had a great July 4th holiday and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We are hoping to have the restaurant back open soon so please come see us again! Thanks again! Mahalo, Tom Kloss General Manager
Very noisy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Stay Hotel Waikiki Aloha, Sorry to hear that it was so noisy during your stay. That is definitely one of the downsides to staying in Waikiki. I wish you would have let us know about the issue during your stay to see if there was anything we could have done as we could have looked at a room move or we do offer free ear plugs at the front desk. We hope to see you again. Mahalo, Tom Kloss General Manager
"Suitable for One Night"
I booked this hotel at the last minute because we needed a hotel for one night before our condo was available. We arrived in late evening and checked out the next morning. Any longer, and it would have been terribly depressing. The furnishings are shabby and worn. It was clean, though. The woman who checked us in was efficient almost to a fault. The […] woman who checked us out seemed bored to tears and unfriendly-- which is odd since Hawaiians tend to be so warm and personable in general. I don't regret staying here as it was adequate and we slept well. I would not stay longer than one night, though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great place and a great price."
While the Stay Hotel Wakiki was not a 5-star hotel, it was more than adequate for our stay. Close to the beach, shops, trolley stops. The staff were outstanding & very accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location and clean friendly hotel"
I always enjoy the Stay Hotel just a block back from the beach, staff are always friendly & the free Wifi means I don't have to hover around Starbucks in my Ipad. Room cleaned daily and love the complimentary continental breakfastGenuine Expedia guest review
Very clean nice center of the main tourist part close to the beach and great staffGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was ok but the location is great. If u want a descent place to stay for cheap close to everything this is a great option. Room is a little dated and bed was too hard for me but staff is very nice and it can work.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what it seems"
I had family visiting and booked two nights here in May. The hotel was actually quite awful. Everything just seemed very cheap and dirty and nothing like depicted in the pictures. I had unfortunately prepaid, so they would not issue you a refund. We stayed one night and checked out and spent the more money to get a much nicer place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to everything."
The Stay Hotel is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. It really is only a block from a main beach. Right there is public transportation, trolley tours, food, and shopping. They have laundry facilities and beach amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
