"Fine place; good value for money"
Stayed here for a couple days on business. I have stayed at most of the Aqua hotels in Honolulu and this is probably my least favorite. That said, for the price it is a pretty good value. Main downside is that parking is rough. The on-site garage is always packed, the spots are tiny, and the ceiling is ridiculously low. The off-site parking is a bit better, but it is a couple blocks away, which is a pain if you are lugging your luggage around.

"Great hotel in Waikiki beach area"
We had family and friends stay in this hotel, compare with the price it was excellent for what you pay for. Customer service and housekeeping were very nice and friendly. Free wifi, but at most time it was useless. Parking space is limited spots.

"Great Room For A Great Rate"
The only problem I had with my stay is that the WiFi did not work. There were some inconveniences but they were caused by the ongoing construction which is out of their control.

"Great room, but a huge safety issue."
The room was nice and way bigger, cleaner and nicer than expected. (The hallways in the hotel are really sketchy) The construction noise others complained about was not an issue. The traffic and tourist noise was much louder and you'll hear that anywhere in Waikiki. They gave us a corner room on the top floor, so we had two balconies which was great. The only issue we had was that the rails on the balconies were extremely far apart. Our 3 1/2 year old could fit his head between them (and he has a large head for his age) and could have easily fallen 15 floors onto the road below. Luckily we measured before we let him go out on the balcony, so we were able to avoid a huge tragedy. That issue seriously needs to be resolved; that just can't be legal! I was surprised that the staff didn't even mention it as they saw us check in with two toddlers. We were able to lock the doors and enjoy the view from inside, but we were very disappointed. Luckily it was only a one night stay. We would stay here again on a couples vacation, but definitely not if we have the kids with us. That's just too scary.

"Just OK"
It was okay. We were hoping to get something better for the money that we paid, but we understand that Hawaii is expensive. The room was run down and was not cleaned everyday--basically they just made the bed and that was it. We had to call down for new towels everyday because they wouldn't leave enough towels for our family. There was no parking because of construction right next door and all around and had to park several blocks away most days and wait for the parking attendant at the other hotel to check us out everyday (which took forever and was very annoying). Overall, we weren't very happy mostly because it wasn't worth what we paid and will definitely not be back.

"Unfair room charges"
The location is great, the staff are nice. We didn't expect a construction going on next door, so the rest is compromised. The bathroom and facilities are poor they shouldn't charge that much. Daily prices are low during the days we are visiting compared to bookings done three months in advance, so I'm not happy with that.

"Great for business but for family stay."
Room was little small. Had no pool but it's really close to the beach. There's a lot of construction going on all around the building making a lot of noise early in the morning. It has no elevator to the parking lot which is super small and overflow parking had to park in the next building over.

Great location. The room was a decent size. Construction next door, so keep that in mind. The room had the world's tiniest flat screen TV you'll ever see, if TV is important to you. They did have a playstation 3, which we didn't use - again the TV was tiny. Wifi service was slow and spotty. Staff was friendly.

"Just an average hotel"
I stayed here with my husband and two kids for two nights in November 2015. There was a lot of construction all around which was very noisy. We were on the 8th floor and were still able to hear loud music from some nearby club well past midnight which caused difficulty sleeping. The room was average; its quality definitely wasn't quite like the pictures. The biggest problem was inconsistent water temperature which swung from cold to very hot and back again. It was ok for the price but I would probably pay a bit more for a different hotel if I had to do it again. Pros are that it is close to two bus stops so it's easy to get around, it was right across from a super udon place, and only a street east of the main drag. If you're very price sensitive and don't mind the negatives I mentioned, then you would be happy here.

The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The rooms were very clean, but the bathrooms could use some updating. There was some construction happening next door, however, it did not bother us as we were usually up and out of our room before they got started.

"Last minute stay, not too shabby."
The location of the hotel was pretty good for the shops and restaurants. The property didn't seem too far for those willing to wander for adventure as I was. I felt that I overpaid for my stay as the room felt a bit outdated. The bed felt like the sheets weren't changed and may possibly have bed bugs. This room was booked last minute as I had missed my flight due to Airline complications with State of Emergencies that had occurred in Paris during this time.

Don't bring your child stroller, be ready to carry your own luggage 2 flights of stairs. So start working out in the gym today! Under Construction next door mall being built. Construction work starts Monday-Saturday 5am to 3pm. But if you can tolerate it and wake-up early and enjoy Honolulu it's worth it.

First of all you can't ask for much towels they want you to keep using the same one till its dirty second of all they charge you 25$ for parking each day your car is there and if you go out and come back and don't find parking you are out of luck and have to park at another hotel for 20$ it's ridiculous!!

"Affordable and close to beach."
Not your 5 star hotel. With that said, if you are looking for an affordable, great location and cleanliness of room was pretty good then stay here. If you, want a 5 star hotel this isn't the place for you. Only drawback, construction on previous international marketplace so can get loud. Also, no elevator to get to hotel front desk so if you have a lot of heavy luggage you will have to bring it up/down a few stairs. I stay here for when I don't feel like spending tons of money but still staying at a decent hotel.

Some problems here. First, the bedsheets looked like someone had step on them. The TV was a 14" computer monitor, so you can't watch it from the bed. The light fixtures and towel racks in the room were off-center. Most importantly, no one mentioned that there was construction across from the window. We wouldn't have had a view, but there were workers and noise from 8 AM to 5 PM. I'm sure it's why we got a cheap room but it would have been nice to be informed.

Too many hidden charges, such as parking and hospitality charges should be on your ad And on your reservation confirmation page as the total per night. This stay ended up costing just ad much or more than some other hotels that I normally stay at. Your should also cater to local and neighbor island visitors with a kamaaina rate.

First of all, the staff are phenomenal. Very friendly and helpful upon check in and throughout my stay. The hotel is a very short (5 min max) walk to Waikiki Beach and within walking distance of dozens of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. For the convenience and friendly staff alone I would stay again. Just remember, you get what you pay for so don't walk in to Waikiki Wave expecting the cleanliness, luxury amenities, and frills offered by some of the more expensive beach side hotels.
