"Second stay not coming back to this hotel"
We had a broken tv but they gave us a new one one of the burners on the stove did not work our view was apartments and cars drifting all night from the parking lot next door kept going for long lengths of timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"More pluses than minuses in paradise"
Many positives in this centrally located property in Waikiki. The staff was helpful and very pleasant. The room was large and clean with a great view of the skyline and ocean. Free on site parking and available washers & dryers were of great value and convenience. Also enjoyed the pool, sauna, and adequate exercise room. On the minus side, the room […] needed a refurbishment. Overall a nice property, providing good value. Could be great with a better room experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not too bad"
Quite acommadating to my needs. Also, parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros: We got a room with a great view (based on room location). Free parking is another benefit of this hotel. Quite close to most eateries etc., Friendly staff. Cons: Wifi was not very reliable. Building is getting old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ilima Hotel - Da Best!"
Ilima Hotel is simply mawvelous! Its location is very quiet and away from traffic congestion, yet close enough to walk to the main, bustling parts of Waikiki. The staff is also excellent and respond to your concerns. The rooms are very roomy and even the studio rooms have kitchenettes with full-size refrigerator, coffee maker, sink, microwave, dishes, […] pots and pans. There is lots of storage space and it's very clean. I loved the fact that when you walk out of your room, it's open-air and not enclosed. There's also a sun deck on the 10th floor if you just want to sit and relax. Also a plus is parking is FREE! Overall, I would return again and again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good fit for us"
I was looking specifically for a kitchenette with comfortable beds because I was caring for my college-student daughter as she recovered from surgery. The Ilima was a great fit for us, and only about 4-5 blocks from the beach. Parking in the garage is limited and narrow, but we were able to find a space each day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good value but dated"
Huge room with kitchenette and free parking and WiFi. But the TV is small and the room appliances and fixtures are pretty dated. The beds were rather cheap and springy too. It's near the zoo nightlife and the staff was very nice. I'd recommend it if you plan to cook some meals to save cash on your stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great water pressure in an older hotel room."
We stayed one night in a deluxe suite after spending a week in a timeshare. The room was very spacious with a nice kitchen wall. The shower had great pressure and got nice and hot. 5 stars for the shower. The beds were comfortable, the staff were very friendly. Our view overlooked the under construction international marketplace, which was fun for my […] son to watch the equipment but it wasn't noisy. We walked to Waikiki beach and barrowed the hotel grass mats, which were handy. Parking wasn't a problem and there was plenty of good food within walking distance. We got a great rate on expedia which made the room well worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice staff and very clean for aged hotel."
There was only drawback for us. The room has it's own very small hot water tank and if you like lengthly showers you're out of luck. Hot water lasts about 7 or 8 minutes. We waited between showers for the tank to recharge. For the money it's a great place to stay. Like I said the only issue we had was running out of hot water. Staff was super nice and […] the room very comfortable and spacious. Old furniture,etc. but the place was better than we expected. We will definitely stay here again.

Waikiki Beach in Hawaii is packed with older hotels just off the beach front. I was in Hawaii and decided to extend my stay so with the help of Expedia 2 nights before saw the Ilima online. The Ilima hotel had a kind of South Beach Florida look to it and the price was right. The lobby is like walking into the 1970's tv show Hawaii 50 and all stall were […] super friendly and enjoyed all inter actions with them. The staff can arrange anything like Pearl Harbor trips car service to the airport or any activity available in Oahu. My room was huge and straight out of the 1970's when I was a kid. It had a king and double bed with full kitchen and was very clean but definitely showed signs of age. The bath was all new white tile and new fixtures a big plus. The room had a safe with a minimal per night charge. There was maid service daily and they do a great job. My favorite part of the room was the giant sliding glass door that opened the entire room to my private balcony. My bed was so close to the door that I was basically sleeping outside every night. The hotel has 3 floor parking garage its free but first come first served I never had a problem with space. Most hotels in Hawaii charge almost the cost of car rental for parking. The Ilima is less then 10 min walk to the most famous pink Royal Hawaiian hotel area where anyone can go the beach. The area around the Ilama hotel has everything. I recommend this hotel to anyone who does not mind staying at an older hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Some things had been updated in the room but the air conditioner was patched with tape and was rusty. Great view of the Ala Wai canal but the neighborhood was a bit scruffyGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice, roomy well laid out room. Could very well live there for weeks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy in Oahu"
Went in for a visit to relatives and to play tourist for 6 days this September.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

"Nice little boutique hotel"
Just a sweet place to stay. all you need for a week.Genuine Expedia guest review
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 morni […] ng.

"Easy access to everything"
Had a great experience staying there, would recommend hitel to family n friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
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.

"decent for the price"
Good value for the money, you get what you pay for here. Not many frills, but we knew that going in, just needed a place to crash to see all the sights for a couple days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"suited the purpose"
This hotel is located near all. We walked everywhere. The employees were very informative along with being very nice. It wasn't the newest hotel but it suited the purpose of our trip for the three days prior to our cruise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed at the Ilima for years and the quality continues to be high. The location is great for the beach and also getting groceries and amenities, we did a lei making workshop twice offered free of charge, parking is free, the staff is just lovely and we had a room with a view of the ALA Wai canal. We were very satisfied.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for extending stay."
Great for the price. Limited parking. Need to be back to the hotel in early evening.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean and close to beach and shops."
Staff was very friendly and ready to answer questions. If they didn't know they would find out and inform us later.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice friendly. Hotel"
Big room with lots of amenities but a new shower head would have been nice. Also a coffee pack or two would have been welcome. Great parking ,good wifi ,and nice staff would all get me to return. Thanks, Arvi and SueGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Middle of Waikiki"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and value"
We live on an outer island in Hawaii and often come for a quick visit to see family. Of all the hotels in this price range, this is the best hotel we have stayed in. The rooms are large, the staff friendly and helpful and the location excellent, two short blocks from the heart of Waikiki.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Affordable stay in Waikiki"

"convenient location, free parking, courteous staff"
was disappointed that they didn't have a cancellation policy because we were offered to stay at a friends house right before the hotel booking, but other than that, pretty well pleased with this hotel and our experienceGenuine Expedia guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Older, But Well Kept"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great deal for the money. The bed was too hard for my taste, but that's the only negative.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Ilima has spacious rooms with full kitchens, free internet and Wi-Fi, tenth floor sun deck which is a great place to watch the Friday night fireworks, a small but nice pool, proximity to the beach, and most importantly, a great staff, front desk and housekeeping alike.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is ideally located just a 5 minute walk from the beach, near everything you want to do in Waikiki! I would recommend it highly! We will come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great Value Hotel with Free ParkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I initially booked this hotel for 4 nights. After spending few hours on first night I realized I cannot stay in this hotel as the room condition was so bad. I would not recommend this hotel... not worth for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We always enjoy the Ilima Hotel. Lovely art in the lobby. Small pool but gets sun in the afternoon. Close to most sights and of course The Bus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family hotel"
We decided to go to waikiki for a family day and decided to go to illma hotel since there were good ratings and rooms seem big. We were really happy that we stayed there. Staff was very nice. Had no problem with towels or any service that was needed. Very close to everything. We has a blast. We will be back here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"terrible place to stay"
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.
