"Great location...but needs updates"
The first room I was in was dirty...bathroom had stained walls, moldy looking shower mat, thin walls and a leaking bathtub. The second room was butter but not by much but it worked for what I was there for.

"Decent Hotel near Waikiki Beach"
Overall stay 3.5 Stars. Hotel - Located on a busy road. Lots of construction next to Hotel. Room was clean but TV signal was bad and Wi-Fi can be spotty from time. No good view of the beach but just buildings. Parking - $25 fee per day per car. Very small parking lot under the hotel. Gets full by 8pm so will need to park in the trade center parking overnight. Paid for parking there and got receipt to get reimbursed at checkout. Overall - it was ok. We liked how it is across the street from Marukame udon and near a Starbucks. However, if we ever return to Waikiki, we would spend more and stay at the Sheraton or Holiday inn instead.

"Not impressed"
When we checked in the lobby was very nice and modern. The room was a different story. Room was updated but with low quality materials. The bathroom only halfway remodeled. The flooring and tub old and dated. The drop ceiling in the shower was a major turn off. our room was on the sixth floor but could still hear the bar downstairs until late into the night.

"The hotel was not what the pictures presented."
Let's just say the pics that were posted on the website was not at all what the actual hotel looks like. I stayed one night since the hotel had already charged my credit card and checked out the next day after finding a HomeAway house.

"Pleasant stay and can recommend."
We stayed 8 nights at Aqua Waikiki Wave hotel, Honolulu. Three persons (couple with adult daughter) in 1 room with 2 queen beds, clean & spacious. Furniture practical although old. Location was excellent, amidst shops & restaurants and the beach is only 8 min walk away, past shops and markets. We had a rental car & parking at the hotel was a bit stressful as only limited (nightly charged) parking was available it we managed a get a spot every day. The bathroom mirrors fog quickly when shower is used. DVD movie hire &'beach towels were free of charge. Hotel has no pool. Friendly staff. Free shuttle between hotel and huge shopping centre every half hour.

I found a cockroach on bathroom counter - I killed and flushed it. Noise from construction on the International Marketplace next door - bring earplugs and don't try to sleep in. Mattress comfort was marginal and pillows are thin Slow elevators - I took stairs most of the time (I was on the third level) Pleasant guest gathering on Wednesday with snacks, drinks, and friendly hosts

"Perfect for a no-fuss beachy vacation"
We stayed at the Wave for a girls weekend getaway - and it was perfect for that. We didn't need a lot of the extra amenities some of the luxury hotels offered - and the price was right. Facilities are a bit older, but well cared for. Staff was super friendly and helpful! Just a couple of blocks from the beach, and right in the middle of Waikiki.

"Comfortable, close to beach and shopping"
Very comfortable hotel with great access to shopping and restaurants; a few short blocks from the beach and zoo. I was very pleasantly surprised to be offered early check in when all I asked for was to store bags for the day. The rooms were quiet through the night. There is construction of a large building on one side of the hotel, but that is only a modest issue and only during the day. Performance of the staff is a bit inconsistent, but never poor.

The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was close to shopping and the beach. The Udon noodles across the street are a must! The beach is a short walk. We took the side street next to the hotel, cut through the Royal Hawaiian pool and you are there.

It's a nice hotel . Close to beach, lot of restaurants around . Hotel staff is very friendly , We had a problem with TV remote, let front desk know, the maintainance guy showed up like in 2 minutes waiting for us. Parking garage is small, not enough spaces for hotel guests , so we had to park in Trade Center , but it's convenience anyway , no problem to park there, hotel reimbursed us when checked out. We will be back to this hotel , because International Market Place is opening next year. We liked the location, location and cleaness of the hotel.

"Acceptable hotel"
Parking was frustrating to find (both the parking garage and an available space once we found the garage). Our first night (on a weekend), the bar across the way was unbelievably loud (yelling and music) until at least 3 in the morning. I don't consider myself a light sleeper but I could not get any sleep at all...felt like trying to sleep in the middle of the bar itself rather than across the street from it. I know the hotel doesn't have control over what the bar does, but just be warned if you need it even a little bit quiet to sleep the noise may be an issue. Upon request, they did move us to a room on the other side of the building after that first night and, though I could still hear some night noise, it was a significant improvement and we were able to get some rest. The hotel is in a very busy, noisy area. You have to put up with traffic, noise, crowding, etc., but the pay-off is that you are within walking distance to a selection of shops and restaurants and are a short walk away from Waikiki beach (maybe 2 blocks). Our room was reasonably clean. A couple of the people at the reception desk were welcoming, friendly, and helpful; a few of the others seemed unhappy to be working there or slightly annoyed that guests were bothering them at the desk with questions or requests. I felt our stay was just OK......nothing that would make me say "never again," but nothing that would make me particularly choose this hotel over another if I were to return to the area.

"Sucky hotel."
Hotel Staff were good .. Dee made our stay better she was amazing. Hotel don't have guest services after check out. Walls we're dirty inside our room dripping stains from the wall. Pillows are the new Oreo thins .. Take your own pillow they suck. Great water pressure from sink but not from shower. Never hot water. Water pressure sucks and dirty water would take long time to drain. My view was a construction site right next door worker will start at 7am that was very incovinient the noise at 7am that wakes you up no the best vacation. Parking sucks you have to park at the trade center because everyday they are out of parking. Then you have to pay them $25 and trade center $20

It seems that your stay fell short of expectations outside of our staff. Having a guest leave our hotel without that ultimate experience we hope to create for them, is disheartening. Should any issue or concern arise during your stay, please do not hesitate to let management know. It would be our pleasure to address any need of our guest to make sure their stay with us is all they anticipate it to be! One thing to note that if there is a need for overflow parking, the discounted $20 fee is refundable during check out when showing your receipt. Mahalo.

"Good location, but poor facility"
Staff was very kind, except for the repair teams which took multiple calls on simple items and lied about getting calls even when I heard the front desk staff call them. Location is good but walls are paper thin. Next door has construction and they start at 7am and there is no way to stop the noise. WiFi was impossibly slow. Pages would not load no matter the time of day and we couldn't even Skype a phone call. Its in a good place for shopping and a couple blocks from the beach but given the noise from construction and all the nearby rooms I would choose somewhere else next time.

"Affordable and conveniently located"
The hotel was located directly on a major thoroughfare which made getting around Waikiki and to downtown Honolulu fairly easy. The room was clean and comfortable even though the carpets were worn. The air-conditioning in the room was fine but the hallways and lobby areas were always warm. In fairness, they were experiencing a heatwave in Hawaii. The hotel chain provides a free shuttle service all around Waikiki which was very nice to have as we didn't rent a car. It was a 3 block walk to the beach, a nice restaurant/bar located in the same building, and the hotel staff was very knowledgeable about the area.

"Excellent hotel close to the beach, restaurant"
The front desk name FRANK is a very pleasing person always smiling helped me a lot I take room with a view and it was an excellent view especially at night with those beautiful lights out and overlooking view even though I have a partial,view of the beach but at night I sit and relax at the veranda. I'm a person who is scared of heights but when I was in this hotel all of my fears are gone. Ever morning they have coffee with four different kind of flavor and when you are thirsty they have a jar of iced water available in the. Morning thru 8:00 pm at night.No waiting in the elevators and the lobby' is clean and I stayed in this hotel for 8 days and my the cleanliness of my room is excellent with clean sheets all the time. One morning while I'm having my coffee and cookies suddenly a bird came over and join me for a breakfast at the veranda. I check out the fitness center and they have towels and water the gym close at 9:00 pm. I love to eat noodles and luckily I'm in front of my favorite noodle store called "MARUKAME noodles" a long line to wait but the food is excellent and cheap, too. I order KAKE SOUP for the price of $4.75 for large order and $3.75 for the regular one and if you want some tempura for add on it cist $1.50 I've been here 2 times and it was a very good choice for eatery. Parking cost $25 for each night but you have to be there early at night coz the parking is always full, though. But if it's full you can park at the nearest parking lot near WORLD TRADE

"Not worth the money."
Keep in mind that you're in downtown Waikiki. I live here, but wanted to get away from things for a little. At night on the weekend it gets very loud because you're near a club/bar. The windows do not insulate you from the outside noise. Parking for a vehicle is horrible. There's only so much real estate under the building so its first come first serve, and you have to pay the hotel for the parking. If you can't get parking there, you have to park next door, and pay those folks cash for time spent in their lot. I will never stay at this Aqua hotel again. If you must, go with Aqua Skyline. It's much better!
