"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.

"Not bad though better options out there."
The " partial ocean view " was not that great and a couple of lights were out in the room, one on the desk table and the other in the bathroom. Though the lady at the front desk was very nice and accomodating. Check in was not until 3:00 pm though I was allowed to leave my bag there in secure storage in the mourning of my stay before actually checking in.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only issue with our stay was the major construction going on right behind the hotel - AND right out our window! It was noisy and a very ugly view. Other than that - we were very pleased. The hotel location was perfect. We would definitely stay here in the future.

"Good stay at the Aqua"
Overall was good, it is a bargain hotel in Honolulu and is in the middle Of a construction area so the noise was noticeable but not too bad. Hotel is older but not in bad shape. The hotel staff was awesome in my opinion especially providing updated information on the tropical storm that was approaching the island giving advance notice on closures in the area. Staff greeted me warmly and always provided great service, they are the reason I will use this hotel again.

"Overall great stay!"
The hotel was located in such a great place.The room was okay, some of the walls were a bit dirty from who knows how long but over all such a comfy place to have stayed. The elevators also took a while sometimes. Also they are re doing the international market place and the construction was loud during the day, which was not the hotels fault. Overall the staff was friendly and I would stay there again.

"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!

"Overall good choice hotel in Waikiki"
This was a great overall stay in Waikiki, fairly close to the beach walking and the hotel shuttle was great for Ala Moana and places along the vicinity. The shuttle service is included in the $15 per day resort fee. Not sure why there's a resort fee, as the hotel was not really a resort. But the hotel did provide beach towel and DVD rental which were both a plus. No breakfast. The rooms were decent for a touch and go trip (if you are the type of traveler who does not spend a lot of time in the room, this is a good choice). The halls could use a new facelift to make it more modern but other than that, this was a good choice for the price.

"Sleeping in a Construction Site"
You would have thought that someone would tell you the neighorhood is under construction. They were erecting steel and placing the decking starting at 6:00 A.M. less than 150 feet from my balcony. Not a very pleasent situation when you are trying to sleep in.

"Wowkiki at the Wave!"
This hotel is perfect for those traveling in large parties. We were lucky to snag one of their suites that had 3 queen beds. Plenty of room for my family of 5. The hotel was obviously a bit dated, but the location and amenities were great - PS3 w/ free dvd rentals from downstairs, and the hotel is just a few blocks away from the beach. If you're an udon fan, it is also located right across the street from an amazing udon restaurant. The ONE major negative... the noise from outside - it was fairly loud due to the fact that the balcony sliding doors didn't close all the way... lots of 'bumping' music and random yelling... then again, it is Waikiki. Overall, I would definitely stay here again for the location and budget - great value! (it's not like you're really in your room anyway... not with the beach a few blocks away)

Excellent location, especially for tourist visiting. We stayed (family of four) for two nights during a relocation from the mainland. Hotel was vey clean, staff was extremely courteous! Parking was crazy but very negligible. You'll pay an extra $25 for the tiny garage under the hotel or $20 for the much larger Waikiki Trade Center parking garage just across the street. Would definitely recommend this hotel even if here on business.

We had a super room with 3 queen beds for my family. Good experience. The hotel provides free beach towel every day. I was able to store my luggage for $5 a day a piece after we check out. The on site parking is $25 day with re-enter privilege. The only problem was the lobby was hot during our stay (early July). Highly recommended.

"Hotel need an update"
i have stayed at this hotel many times since Aqua had taken it over...however I was surprised by how run down this hotel looked from the last time I stayed here two years ago. First off there is construction everywhere around which woke us up early...the noise from a nearby club kept us up late...which resulted in little sleep...the carpet inside the room was so dirty and the bathroom looked very run down...marks on the walls and very little parking in the paid lot. Otherwise the location is great, I used to love this hotel as a frequent visitor to Oahu as I am a Maui resident...I will be exploring other hotels for my next visit!

"Good hotel but construction next door was annoying"
Pros: -nice, welcoming, and accommodating hotel employees -super close to Waikiki beach. We walked there almost every day. -close to good shopping and restaurants -free DVD rentals and they actually had a great selection of recent movies. (they say it's free but you pay a mandatory 15 bucks a day for this and the "free" wifi service). -room was clean. Cons: -sadly most of the cons we experienced were outside the hotel's control. Major construction is happening right next door as they are rebuilding the international marketplace. -This made parking very difficult and navigating in and out kind of difficult. -mostly we were away from the hotel during the day but there were some mornings and one afternoon when we wanted to sleep in or take a nap. The noise from the construction made this nearly impossible. -Our view from the balcony literally looked right down onto a construction yard. Nothing to get excited about. -Advertises continental breakfast but it's actually just coffee. OVERALL we enjoyed our stay and had a great trip. We spent a small portion of our time in the hotel so it was more of a place to store our bags and sleep. If you are looking for more then this or are easily bothered by construction noise then this may not be the hotel for you.

It was a nice way to wind down with my family at the end of the day. The room was basic, but clean. We appreciated the fact that there were three queen beds, but also some privacy. And the view totally blew us away!

This hotel is in a construction zone and the parking is terrible!! (so bad I would only consider it if you are NOT renting a car). In addition, the hotel condition was not as advertised.

"Convenient location, but very noisy."
The hotel was generally ok. Staff was very helpful. However, our room faced the main street, and despite being on the 8th floor, there was a dance club/bar on the street that played VERY LOUD music until 2am. Next night, club was relatively quiet, but there was a very drunk hotel guest in our hallway, and the security guard who was dealing with him was unnecessarily loud on the walkie talkie and woke us up, again around 2am. We stayed 2 nights and didn't get much rest either night.

We booked this hotel for 3 nights, but we decided to check out after the first night. Hotel gave away my original room though I paid and confirmed. The one we got is noisy, no privacy if open curtains, dirty carpet and bathroom, you can see cracks on ceiling. Can't close window at one room, hear noise from the streets and smell weed.

This is one of the worst hotel I've stayed in. Service is terrible! Check in area is small and slow since there's only 2 receptionist. The front desk is right on the walk way so you don't have much room to stand in line, the person behind you is so close to you that they bump to you all the time. All other aqua hotels doesn't charge for local residents but this one does. $25! We will never stay here ever!

Very Conveneince location for many good restaurant. However, there are major construction next door, so it was noisy when we stayed at the hotel to rest during the day time. It happened someone broke the sink in the room next to us, so we have people going in and out our room to deal with the plumbing problem without any advance notice. It surprised us in a bad way when we got back to the hotel and a stranger came out from out hotel room. Parking is not that good. They only have 50 parking spots. We needed to get back to the hotel early just to fight for a spot at the hotel instead of parking elsewhere. Bed was comfortable, staff are nice.
