"Nice Hotel Wonderful Staff Free Parking"
Our studio room was large, well equipped, but somewhat old. The hotel is close to the beach, a supermarket and a great Japanese noodle restaurant. Visitors lined up to eat in this restaurant every day. The staff at the front desk was cheerful and helpful. They provide beach towels and sitting mat for going to the beach. The cleaning person was careful in providing all the towels, soap, etc. that we needed. WiFi and Parking were both free. Overall we had a wonderful time staying in this hotel.

"Best value among hotels in Waikiki"
The Ilima hotel is, by far, the best value in Waikiki. It offers the best combination of clean and spacious rooms, close proximity to the beach and very friendly, helpful staff. This was our 3rd stay at the Ilima, and we've been very happy with our stay every time.

"Good for families"
Enjoyed our 5 night stay. The hotel is dated, but we didn't mind because it was clean and comfortable and provided what we needed. We appreciated the full kitchen (complete with dishwashing liquid!) and ample living space for our family of 4. We managed to avoid paying the high prices for dinner in Waikiki this way. A nice added treat was the complimentary lei making class at the end of our stay. Praying for all those in Hawaii who may be affected during hurricanes Iselle and Julio. Stay safe.

"Great Location"
Spent 4 days here in a 2 bedroom - everything was within walking distance. The beach, shopping and plenty of places to eat was close. The staff was very helpful. The only draw back - a very small pool. But we didn't go for the pool so it didn't really matter to us. Really enjoyed!!! Also - great balconies to sit and have coffee - early in the morning.

The Hotel Ilima fit my family's needs. We had two bedrooms and a Murphy bed in the living room. By no means is the hotel updated, but it was clean and in a good location. We could easily walk to lots of shops, restaurants, and Waikiki Beach. We caught the bus a couple blocks away to take us to Pearl Harbor (it is a long bus ride, but much cheaper than a cab).

This hotel is old, ugly and in a sketchy area. It is however, close to the Marketplace, stores and restaurants. The afternoon staff was very friendly. However, when I called the front desk at 8:00 am to request a late check out, I was told no because the next guests for my room had already arrived. This hotel has a ton of rooms and not very many guests so I'm not sure why this would have been an issue. I believe those that rated this hotel a 4.1 out of 5 have very low standards.

"Just fair"
When checking into the hotel for our 2 night stay, the front desk announced there would be no housekeeping services during our stay because of the staff picnic. Really? I'm all for staff picnics but this is my family's vacation - and we're paying for a service that they did not deliver. No apologies, no concessions, no acknowledgement that this might be an inconvenience for us. The hotel is clean overall but outdated. Free parking on site is a plus. Easy walking distance to the beach and much less expensive.

Surrounded by taller hotels, so not a great view of the area, at least from the room I was in. Only a few blocks from Waikiki beach, easy to walk to. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance also. One of the few hotels in the area that offers free parking and free wifi for their guests.

"best value for your money"
We got a studio suite with 2 double beds on the 9th floor for 1 week... pros: Reasonably priced - truly the best value for our money: --FREE Parking - where can you get that in Waikiki? --NO resort fee - again, where else can you find that? --FREE wi-fi in room (WI-FI's pretty fast, too) Location: 2 blocks away from Waikiki but away from the overly crowded area. I felt that the location was pretty safe. It's between residential and commercial areas. I had no problem walking back to the hotel with my kids at night after some shopping. Room: Full kitchen - saved us some $$$ and allowed us flexibility to eat whenever we want to Clean room our room was pretty big, with lots of space for 2 kids to chase each other I guess this is one good thing about older buildings, the walls are not paper-thin. Staff: -- front desk: very nice and helpful, and always greeted us whenever we came through the lobby. --the other folks were nice, as well. --our room got cleaned daily extras: -- Lei making on Wednesdays- fun experience for the family cons: There's nothing, really, except I almost didn't book this hotel because it's pink. The hotel is a little dated. Overall, if you're into fancy, this place might not be for you. If you're into a no-frills, best bang for your buck place, this one definitely fits the bill. We'll definitely stay here again.

Very well maintained and clean for an older hotel. One of the few hotels that offer free on-site parking. Very good value for such a large room that includes a full kitchen with furnished kitchenware. Not on the beach but within a 5 minute walk which can actually be a bonus considering the crowds and traffic that are always near the beach. Hotel staff is very friendly and able to help you. Wednesday morning hands-on lei making class was a bonus and thoroughly enjoyed by all of the hotel guests.

"Good stay. Good location in Waikiki."
This was our 2nd stay. Good boutique hotel. Good spot for 1st timers in Waikiki. Can walk to just about anything in the area. This is not a resort. Amenities are limited. Pool is very small. We think it has gotten pricey with taxes and fees. We enjoyed it anyway. There is an Enterprise car rental place [no airport fees] right across the street.

"left a little to be desired"
The room was okay. On the 14th floor with a view of the ocean. The curtains were stained, a large safe on the floor that didn't work and was replaced by a smaller one in a closet that wasn't free, The kitchen was tiny. Just one small fry pan and no paper towels. The conceirge that is on duty daily between 8:00am and 12:00 noon doesn't work on Sunday. Daily? On Monday at 8:30 he hadn't yet shown. On Tuesday when we checked out at 10:00am he was there talking on the phone, so don't expect lots of help from the coneirge. The neighborhood is okay but it is only about 4 blocks to the beach. The front desk help was friendly.

It was a terrible experience in Hawaii when I stayed in this hotel. The hotel is old and not very clean and far from the beach. The toilet was blocked. The room is very crowded. When I wanted to upgrade the room, the staff was very rude and gave an exorbitant prices for the upgrade. I think it is not good choice to stay Hawaii, maybe it will ruin your trip.

This is the fifth time my wife and I have enjoyed 10-day stays at the Ilima. It gets better every time. Very quiet, nice neighborhood, short walk to everything, including Waikiki Beach. Free parking too (other hotels charge $25-$35 per night). Gigantic rooms. Excellent kitchen with stove, full-size fridge, dishes. Cleaning staff are mostly Filipino and most have worked at the Ilima for many years, and take great pride in their work. They love the place almost as much as we do. Best value in Waikiki.

"Yuck"
The balcony door of our room wouldn't lock. Not safe for our 3 year old who could open the door by himself. We were told it couldn't be fixed until the next day. Also there were stains on the bedding. I know this hotel is old but come on, you can invest in new bedding. We asked for a different room and were shown a dirty room. It hadn't been cleaned after the previous guest left. We were then shown to another room that had windows that didn't close all of the way. It was very windy that night so there was no way we were staying in a room with open windows. We have 2 young kids and if they don't sleep, we don't sleep. We ended up staying at the Marriott for the same price per night plus a parking fee. So worth it! Won't ever stay at Ilima hotel.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
Since there were three of us on this trip to Oahu, my friends and I wanted to stay in a suite. While searching on line, I came across the Ilima Hotel and I liked that it was in a great location and offered two bedroom suites with a full kitchen at a reasonable price. The pictures of the premises looked fine enough. It wasn't until we arrived at the hotel and glanced around that I noticed it was well maintained and clean--so were our rooms. We also had a lanai where we drank our morning coffee. There was a small swimming pool at the back of the lobby. There's also free parking for guests! The Ilima might be a budget condo hotel but its courteous and helpful staff, clean premises, free parking and other amenities makes it well worth the stay. I recommend it to everybody who wants to stay near the beach and action in Waikiki at a reasonable price. We had an enjoyable stay.

"basic studio apartment"
We got a studio apartment with full kitchen on the 4th floor. The view was unacceptable. We were looking directly into the facing apartment complex. They can see into our room and vice versa. Had to keep curtain closed most of the time. We should have asked to switch room, but didn't want the hassle after unpacked. The aircon was a small window unit and had probably been running for months without cleaning. It was filthy and loud. It ran all day & night to maintain 74 deg. The beds have bed bugs. The kitchen was stocked with all the needed items. The bathroom was small, but clean. The small safe has a daily fee, not acceptable! The pool was super SMALL and the water was COLD! The parking spaces were limited and small. If you don't get back to the hotel before 5pm, you're going to have a rough time parking a Smart size car. The staff are all friendly. We never really made any request of them other than extra towels. They don't have beach towels. They loan out OLDER bath towels as beach towels, not acceptable, bring your own. As we were not in our room very much, only to shower/sleep, we weren't very fuzzy, just wanted a hotel with a kitchen. So, if you're looking for an average apartment with free limited parking, free wifi, full kitchen, a laundry room, and not much else, you may be okay here. We weren't expecting better due to all the good reviews, sadly not the case. We had a fun week, but not because of the "apartment". Basic studio apartment, not hotel!
