"BIG mistake & pool the size of a tub"
Bad choice - don't stay here. Gross Rusted, old & pink ! The only positives were Great location & has a full kitchen yes - but truly old old old rusted smelly hotel rooms with the pool the size of a bathtub. Big expensive mistake !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great value in Honolulu"

"Great experience. Would totally stay there again."
i really enjoyed staying in Llima Hotel. After staying at a different, more expensive hotel, Llima offered more extras that would have cost quite a bit more. Free parking, free wifi, great location from many local eateries, and A KITCHEN! seriously, that kitchen made my wife happy. we couldn't even warm up leftovers at the other hotel and had to toss […] good food. friendly and helpful staff to boot. awesome experience.

We loved our stay at the Ilima. The location is fantastic: it's right near Waikiki Beach, there are many bus lines and trolleys that run right near it, and there are so many restaurants nearby that we had trouble choosing which ones to go to! Although the hotel itself is a little old, it was clean and well-maintained. We had no problems with mold, bugs, […] or anything else. We were on the 12th floor, and were not bothered by noise from the street or from other guests. The beds were pretty comfy, and there were several extra pillows and blankets provided. The staff was very friendly and helpful too. Overall, it was a great experience and we'd definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A true rating"
This hotel deserves the rating it has earned. The hotel staff was top notch. My room was comfortable. I was warned that the free parking may not be available at times but it was when I was there (inexpensive alternatives were suggested). My only gripe was with the slow wifi. This hotel is certainly a good value in the price range.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Definitely recommend it to use"
Everything clean and fixed. Parking included. No hidden fees. Friendly stuff. Big room with good kitchen.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing special, but clean and in a good location"
The room was clean and spacious but the place is old and overdue for a remodel. Lots of street noise and limited parking. They charge for morning coffee which I thought was kind of crossing the cheapness line. We arrived at 8 pm and was told there was no parking available. Bed was hard but the sheets were clean. Fine for a family on a budget wanting […] to stay in Waikiki. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
No wifi in rooms, though they said it was coming. Towels and beach mats often already taken, too few for that many rooms. Parking garage was very small, extremely difficult to get even a standard sedan into (lots of chips and scrapes on all the pillars so make sure you have car insurance to cover). People would overlap into next space so you might have […] to park on the street. Very good location - couple of blocks from highend shopping and hotels, a little harder to get to the beach, also lots of inexpensive places nearby. Need to drive to nearest grocery store. Good for anyone who wants to cook some of their own meals. Good value especially for families. No noise or partying. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ilona Hotel Waikiki"
Convenient location, friendly staff, but condition of hotel was pretty disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Had everything we needed,but is old feeling"
The entrance was nice looking, but the hotel showed it age when you entered. The place feels like it used to be condo's...weird closets, felt like nothing had changed since the late 70's...bed was confortable, but the room had a queen and king bed, but the headboards were both queens...there was no blanket other than the dustcover...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel and Wonderful trip"
This Hotel was great for a 5 night stay with family with 2 kids, I had a deluxe studio with full kitchen 1 double 1 king beds and there was still much room for my 2 years old to run everywhere. you can notice that the building is kinda old but they put much effort to keep everything clean and shiny. The pool very very small and they claim that it is […] heated but it is not, it wasn't a problem for us because we went to the beach every day. the beach is five minutes walking from the hotel. they have free parking free internet so it was great, we actually didn't ever used the car because everything is too close to the hotel (Grocery, pharmacy, restaurants, beach, fun street shows). the view is good starting from floor 10, we were ate 14 so we could see the canal and the mountain, below floor 10 you feel like you are squeezed between the other buildings' garages. the front disk and room service were very nice and we came every time to find the room cleaned and arranged , new towels, you can ask for towels as much as you need. when you go to the beach they offer towels and mates. in general this hotel was very good for our trip with that price.

"Good Stay in Wakiki"
Good staff, clean rooms and well maintained grounds. Softest sheets I have ever slept in. Even though in Wakiki, reasonably priced-included parking AND it was pretty quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good budget joint if you don't need amenities"
This is a solid budget joint. Three of us shared one room (one double & one queen bed), and it was plenty big enough. It was nice to have a private balcony. The kitchen was a lot more than I expected, complete with pots & pans, glasses, silverware, towels, sponge & dish soap, full fridge, microwave, and small stove. We never heard noise from other guests, […] but the noise from outside sure seeped in (think police sirens during the night, and trash men emptying dumpsters in the morning & putting felled trees through wood chippers). If you need a pool and/or weight room in your hotel, DO NOT stay here. The pool is tinier than most personal/backyard pools with absolutely no ambiance. The "weight room" is the size of a walk-in closet with two machines; it's laughable to even call it a weight room. However, if you're not concerned with those types of amenities and you want to save a bit of money by staying a bit further (around 15 mins walking distance) from the beach, this could be the place for you.

"Great hotel for everyone."

Cost performance of the hotel was resonablly good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"3 Days in Oahu"
Very nice room, very quiet at night, the location is great, few of blocks away from Waikiki Beach, very close to the Zoo, Diamond Head, and a lots of great shopping, a grocery store is close by. They have coffee at the front desk, also towels & mats to use at the beach. Everybody at the front desk we met was very friendly. Will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for families"
This hotel is a nice place for families who don't want to share room with their kids. We had a two room apartment and another king bed in the living room. The location of this hotel is great, at least if you like walking to the beach (about five minutes), go shopping and dining without using your car (it's very difficult to find a parking spot in Waikiki). We […] loved this place because it reminds us summer vacation in Spain (we are a Spanish family), with many people on the street, a lot of restaurants and shops and a nice atmosphere. Of course, if you don't like this, look for another place. It can be noisy during the nights. The hotel itself is nice and clean, but a little bit old. If you need Internet connection in your room, make sure your laptop has an ethernet port (There is no wireless in the rooms, but they offer WI-FI in the lobby). Internet connection is free and works very well and fast. Another pro is that parking in this hotel is free. Parking is available on a first come first serve base, but we never had problems to find a spot (This might be different during Xmas vacation or in summer, but we have been there in February.) The pool of this hotel is tiny. We didn't care because we didn't go to Hawaii to spend time at the pool, but on the beach. Conclusion: If you are looking for a family friendly, not too expensive hotel near the beach (but without beach view), that is the right place for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a family!!"
Its location, price, accomodation itself, everything was satisfactory!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Always stay at the Ilima...."
Whenever my wife and/or I are on Oahu overnight, we always stay here. Free parking, no "resort" fees (for things we wouldn't use), a comfortable bed, kitchenette, convenient location, clean room, friendly staff. Great little bakery (St Germaine) just down the street for breakfast treats.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Large room, good price, needs updating"
The hotel front desk personnel were very helpful and extremely friendly. It is almost impossible to find a room this large and with a kitchen in Waikiki for this price. This hotel room would have been even better if it had a little updating of paint, carpet, bedding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"pro bowl week"
very clean and helpful staff the pool very small and didnt get sunlight much but they had two sundecks on the 10th floorGenuine Expedia guest review
"good fun with friends"
The two bedroom suite was very spacious. For the price, this room was well worth it. There were two double beds in each room, plus a murphy bed and a sofa pull-out in the livingroom. Not the most luxurious hotel room i've ever stayed in, but it was definitely a bargain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, good price"
Stayed two nights in Honolulu on our way back home. Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of International Marketplace, lots of restaurants, bus and trolley lines, and Waikiki Beach. Room was very spacious studio with two double beds and a full kitchen. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You can receive real Aloha spirit!"
I stayed at Ilima from Jan,5 to 14. Every time I asked them services such as installing an extra tissue box, shuttle booking to the airport, and chaging currency, they immediately responded our request. Enery staff asked us, "Do you enjoy? Everything is ok?" They seem to be professional with namely Aloha spirit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for highly recommended"
I feel so comfortable when I and my family were stayed in IIima Hotel. We rented the room with kichen, well it is designed so easy use and it filled with all the kinds of tools for cooking. Room were kept clean every day as well as updated the basic bath room staff which hotel free supply to guests. Also the parking place is really good! Well it is […] safer and more convience to part in, and it is free for guests! The most important part is, it near by downtown Honolulu. I only need to walk across one block. And if you go across two blocks, you will arrive in the most famous shopping street, Coach, Chanel, etc. as well as international market, Waikiki Beach are all located over there. Over all I highly recommend to everybody who plan to travel to Honolulu, Hawaii think about this hotel! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A great hotel for families"
I like Ilima. The front desk people are very friendly and helpful. The room is ok with the price and the bed is comfortable. We had a room with kitchen, which is nice to have some self-prepared food when you are tired of restaurant stuff. The location is a bit noisy, but that is probably true for other Wakikii hotels. Parking is free, which is plus […] since we have a rental car. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Waikiki stay"
Overall, it was a good experience: Positives - The stuff was nice and responsive to issues. - Room was spacious - Good size comfortable beds - The view was great - Walking distance from Waikiki beach - The neighborhood was quiet Issues - While the hotel did a good job cleaning the room, nobody cleaned the kitchen stuff (dishes, forks, etc). There […] was no cleaning stuff (sponge, etc) either. - The internet was not working in the room. a technician was assigned to check it out. It turned to be an issue with the room. We were offered to move to another room. we preferred to give it up though. - Parking was free with a catch. It was first come first served. We usually was able to find a spot but there was no promise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great customer service!"
This was truly a good hotel to fall back to for 3 days. I wish we had more time spent at the hotel, but we were constantly on the go. We liked the fact that it was nearby everything and also the free parking for hotel customers. I would definately take my family back to this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family owned hotel close to everything"
We enjoyed staying there. Especially fun was seeing all of the employees singing songs together in the Friday morning 11:30 am sing-a-long. Maintenance men, house keepers, managers, etc. What a nice thing to do.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel ,bad mamagement"
We like to spend a time out using the room's balcony. The Hotel and stuff was very nice .....but the manager was bad. We booked a room for 3 days/16-19th of Nov/ with Mileage + /Chase / credit card and after that with Expidia for the next 5 days /19-14th of Nov./ For unknown reason we must to check out on 19th at noon and check in around 3 pm in different […] room on the same floor / 4th/ with very ugly view . I asked the front desk "Why we have to move ?" The answer was ....." because that room is very easy for sale". We booked the rooms ......around June 2012 and the price of the rooms was the same on 4th,5th and 6th floors. Some people doesn't care to much for the balcony ,but we do. We reschedule our fly a day earlier and left Ilima hotel a day earlier. Thanks to the manager. Ivan Seattle Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"need some major upgrades"
While we enjoyed the friendly staff and the spacious room, we were disappointed by how old and shabby the room facility was. The hotel need some major upgrades, including the windows, carpet and stove. The bedroom windows were never fully shut (hence, we could hear the street noise throughout the night, which kept me awake for the most part) and one […] of the bedrooms had its window broken and was imperfectly taped together. The stove handle came off when we tried to boil some water, which discouraged us from using the kitchen altogether. The carpet was stained here and there and a bit smelly. It's unfortunate because I was hoping to recommend this hotel to a friend's family visiting Waikiki as a "value" hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome budget option, great facilities"
Large studio with king and queen bed. Clean kitchen with pots, plates, utensils. Very close (5min walk) to awesome stretch of Waikiki beach. No hassle beach towel service. Large balconies with beautiful mountain view. Very comfortable stay. Short walk to grocery store. Laundry on 3rd floor, $1.50 wash, $1.50 dry. Several machines.Genuine Expedia guest review
just ok hotel for family. there was a kitchen and it was very useful. All the staff at the hotel were very polite and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poorly managed hotel but nice employees."
Very unhappy that the hotel would not exchange the dates of our stay after we checked in - we wanted to add days on the end in exchange for days booked. We ended up paying for nights not used and choosing another hotel for the end of our trip. We felt this was very bad management practice that put the very kind hotel desk employees in a poor PR position. […] We were going to schedule our March stay there, but don't want to encourage bad management practice. Maid service was inconsistent - never knew when or if they would show up, also there was a leaky faucet that needed repair. Loved the room size and views were spectacular!

"Great location - Average Hotel"
The staff was extremely kind and helpful. The hotel is in a great location -- a few blocks from Waikiki Beach. You are in the middle of all all the action in Waikiki. The room was spaciens appliances in the rooms were useful (but old). Beds are not the most comfortable. My only real complaint is that the lobby area has a strange smell.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for price."

"Location & Value"
Best about this hotel: 1. Location - In Waikiki and only a short walk to the beach through the bustling International Market 2. Parking - FREE! although limited in capacity 3. Value - inexpensive stay in Waikiki Overall, the hotel is in need of some update. The carpet and the furniture look worn and dated. We rented a 2 bedroom suites. It come with […] an ample living area with a balcony overlooking the street and a functional kitchenette. Both bedrooms are rather tight, they are equipped with a double bed. There is only 1 bath.

"Good place to stay, but not on the beach"
The hotel is located close to the shopping area and beach. The staff is excellent and always willing to help. They do not have WiFi in the rooms, but cable. They only have WiFi in the lobby area. The bed was extremely good to sleep in.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel room had a bit of a musty smell, but overall the room was very clean, comfortable, and spacious.

"Well kept resort hotel of a generation ago"
The room has a flat screen TV with little free interesting channels. There is no in-room WiFi, only WiFi that one can log in with password in the lobby each time one wishes to access e-mail or the internet. There is also a pay for use computer in the lobby which one might use to print a boarding pass. (But of course that can be done for free at the […] airport.) There is limited free parking which they say is full by early evening. But this is better than nearby alternatives which charge for parking and provide no internet access.
