It was fine, nothing fancy. The front staff was helpful and nice. We would recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"you got what you pay."
The location is convenient for shopping but a little bit far from beach. The hair dryer was not working, and the bathroom is half size, and flooded after shower. The TV is so small, looks like a computer screen. Anyway, you got what you pay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for money in the heart of Waikiki"
I stayed here by myself for a week in January. The hotel could use a bit of a renovation, but for the price, and the location, I was very happy with my decision to stay here. The hotel is in the middle of Waikiki only 2 blocks from the beach, and there are lots of restaurants and things to do in the immediate vicinity. The hotel also includes free dvd […] rental in the rooms with a dvd machine with current movies available. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel, very limited parkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the Wave!"
We had a great time. Only wish the wi-fi and towels were included in the price. Staff was friendly, room was clean, and the location was fantastic. The bathroom didn't have a fan to help with steam, and wasn't as nice as the room...but really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aloha spirit is still in Waikiki"
Good hotel in a great (but noisy) location, and with great staff who really embrace the aloha spirit. The beds are fine but the bathrooms need remodeling. We were there for two different stays and in a regular room and a suite. Both had the same issues. The bathrooms need tubs, tile and plumbing redone. The rooms look good until you look closely to […] see the rusty towel racks, dirty grout and defective plumbing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Me and my girlfriend wanted to get away from home. We live here on Oahu, so we decided to have a mini staycation. Prices were fair. The only down sides was the "city view" it was mainly construction. Nosey but bearable. Tv was extra small...cute. we got to rent movies which came with our package. Guest service was excellent. Whenever we needed help […] with something they were right there and very kind. This hotel isn't the thew to stay in all day (mainly because you rather be outside having fun in Hawaii) but while you are there, you won't be disappointed. I hope this helps people who are thinking about booking with Aqua Waikiki Wave. Do it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aqua Waikiki Wave"
Overall, stay was okay except that the price per night does not suite the quality of the room. It took a long time to check in, there were no towels in the room, asked for roll away bed and later was informed the hotel ran out. Size of TV extremely small, I don't think a downtown hotel in Waikiki still uses 19-21" TV for a more that $400+ per night […] room. Location of hotel is alright but not totally pleased with the type of room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably priced, great location!"
The hotel lobby is basic, but the rooms were comfortable and included a refrigerator and microwave. The hotel is located on a street that has a number of restaurants. One block over are even more restaurants and swanky shops (e.g., Gucci, Jimmy Choo). The location can't be beat! The hotel charges a "resort fee", which I was a little skeptical of at […] first. But it included access to the business center (which I used several times to print), a shuttle that takes you to the Ala Moana Mall and free DVD rentals. I feel like I got my money's worth. The hotel staff were alsop very friendly and accommodating.It is not like some of the high end hotels that I usually stay in, but it was a very good value for the money spent.

"Great Hotel Overall"
Great staff great service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad hotel.. Worse service"
Didn't appreciate the high price spike just because it was New Years. The front desk employee specificly told me they raised their rates simply because of the holiday. It was crowded, the room was extremely small and not at all what was shown on the website! Never stay here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 days in Honolulu"
Hotel is old. Rooms were comfortable with 2 queen size beds. Ample parking $25.00. Friendly staff. Clean lobby. Walking distance to beach, stores and restaurants. Would probably stay again for a bargain price under $100.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better the last time I stayed."
My room this time was is bad shape. The room had an odor. TV looked liked an old computer monitor. The walls were dirty, I had to wipe the walls down with a damp cloth. Construction noise early morning from construction site next door. I would highly suggest a partial ocean view room high floor because those rooms will not face the construction site […] and it seems that these rooms are better taken care of. I had a room on the fifth floor. The hallway seemed dingy on this floor. All of my requests could not be possible however The staff was very friendly and try to be as accommodating.

It was a good stay.the only problem is, the toilet continuously flushing and we needed to fix it every usage...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is adjacent to a very large construction site. Construction begins at 8am Monday through Saturday. Don't plan to sleep beyond 8am even with the ear plugs provided by the hotel. Construction involves both blasting and pile driving into bedrock.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Street noise (weekend), renovated condition, comfortable beds, problems with toilet -- overall a good stay for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Construction next door started at 8:00am on a Saturday. Parking fee of $25 with limited stalls. There was an employee Ford Explorer parked in the middle which made it difficult to maneuver.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For the price, a pretty fair deal"
Overall, a good value and in the hotel world, you get what you pay for. Nothing fancy, awesome location, a bit noisy for some, especially if you plan on sleeping in or are bothered by street noise and late night bar chatter. But we were happy...everyone was friendly and the hot water worked. Plus, 5 minutes to one of the best beaches in the world so […] who cares how nice the hotel room is ;) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location .... Great Staff .... No Complaints"
Just stayed here for a week. Good central location makes it easy to walk to the beach and the main shopping area. Free shuttle to Ala Moana mall. And the buses for most of the city tours/attractions pick up right next door at the Waikiki Trade Center. Our room was on the 12th floor overlooking the construction site next door, but we really didn't hear […] any noise from that. Nor did we hear any noise from the rooms on either side of ours. The room was clean, the beds and pillows were very comfortable and there was ample drawer/closet space. Couldn't see the beach but we could see the ocean and Diamond Head. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. And both the food and the service in the Chinese restaurant in the lobby were very good. There's also a great little diner just across the road that does a great breakfast for $5.00. For the rate we paid, we received excellent value for money. I understand the hotel is due to be refurbished next year and once the new international market place is also completed, this hotel will be a really great place to stay in Waikiki. A big mahalo to all the staff and the great management team :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate for minimal stay"
The staff was friendly and mostly helpful. The staff we spoke to did not have specifics on beach area entertainment and restaurants. There are stairs with no ramp for rolling luggage into or out of the hotel entry. Did appreciate the security at the door in the evenings to prevent non-residents from entering. Early morning taxi service was into parking […] garage below building and driver had no idea he could not open the back of his van for luggage in the low ceilings. The room was okay for the minimal time we spent in the room, but was not the nicest/cleanest of rooms I have experienced. We were pleasantly surprised at how close to the beach the hotel is.

"Nice Hotel. Close to tons of places."
Love the hotel. Construction was going on nearby so it was kinda noisy during the day but it's all good since we are at the beach and touring all day.Genuine Expedia guest review

"September vacation for three."
We arrived early, but lucked out because the room was ready. I was going to try for an upgrade because I was going to be there for my birthday and my wife and I had just had our anniversary a couple of weeks before, but we were already on the 12th floor with a corner room that had two balconies. I was concerned because I had read negative feedback about […] the noise, but being high up I heard nothing except the construction work during the day, but who is in their hotel room during the day? I had a problem with the TV remote and one of the lamps. There was someone in the room correcting this before I could get back from the front desk. Room was great, one window had a partial view of the ocean, the other had a partial view of Diamond Head. Be sure to check on the free shuttle to the shopping center, the beach towels, and card for free DVDs. You can check your email for free also. Manager's reception was a nice touch. Overall we were very happy with the room and the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, older, but clean and comfortable."
We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was. The staff was courteous and helpful, always willing to take the time for us! We enjoyed the free hotel shuttle to the Mall, wish we would have known about it earlier, maybe it would have picked us up at the airport and taken us back? We had a junior suite that came with a king and a queen bed. […] It was a spacious room with 2 balconies for a great price. Thanks Expedia! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I really enjoyed stay because of the location and the accomadations provided right within the hotel. Restaurants within and connected to hotel. Too hotel have gift store, massage parlor-Yes, Pierre is great! :) Just within walking distance of Wakiki beach and other stores. It's like right downtown of Wakiki. Loved the stay. Only thing on my final day […] stay. Someones began to slam the rooms/or cleaning room door to a very annoying level of rudeness, such that I almost complained. Otherwise the staff and hotel in general is accomodating to visitors with the daily services included automatically of $15 a day. So be sure to indulge in all services available or be clear don't want to partake in shuttle or beach towels services. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Avg hotel in decent location"
Room was average. The parking lot next door is gone so very limited parking which is tough in waikiki. Also heavy construction going on next door with lots of noise. Pool at hotel was closed according to front desk because it isnt ada compatible . Although that is the sane thing they said last year when I stayed there. If you need a cheap place to stay […] and dont care about luxury or things like tv then its ok the new tv was a 19 inch screen. Smaller than my computer screen Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy and sleepless"
Loud after-hour partiers from open-air bar across street and on street as well as loud buses, vehicles, early morning trash trucks disrupted sleep. Also, presence of homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks was upsetting and disconcertingGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not at all Worth it!"
The pictures of this hotel lead you in a much better direction than the Hotel truly has to offer. It is Old to the point of Ancient, and they have only put a coat of paint over damaged, weathered walls. Parking is atrocious and very limited, although you pay for it whether you get a spot or go to their lot down the street. Our first room smelt like […] a Huge Canned Ham! We were about to eat the $200+ we paid for the room And leave! But the employees were very kind and moved us. They are the sole reason we stayed! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fair Price for What is Provided"
Pictures are accurate. Not a new hotel, modernize but worn. Next door used to be another hotel and shops. The former buildings are currently being torn down. If you enjoy watching construction crews work, pour new foundation and the noise associated with a large project, this is a place for you. No swimming pool but the beach is about 4 blocks away. […] Parking garage is small, other hotel guests park haphazardly at times. Noise from clubs across the street can be heard into the wee hours of the morning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Aqua Waikiki Wave During these tough economic times remaining affordable for family vacations remains very important to us here at the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel and we appreciate your reference to this. As our location is excellent in relation to the beach and area attractions, it is also part of the very popular tourist entertainment area where sometimes events can cause some distraction. And also while we do understand that the construction taking place next door for the International Marketplace may sometimes be an eyesore, this new market will include approximately 75 retailers and seven restaurants and will bring so many more dining and shopping options for our future guests. Mahalo for your review and your feedback.
"Very nice hotel for this price"
I arrived far before 3 PM and the staff checked me in earlier. The staff was very helpful and pleasing.The room was clean and quiet which for me was most important. Good location close to Waikiki beach and shops. A definite worth to go if you search for a low cost hotel where you only shower and sleep and don't expect luxury.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Our stay at the Wave."
Everything went smoothly at our stay at the wave. It's a nice quick walk to the beach with everything you need at a short walk. It's perfectly located with restaurants, bars, board rentals, ects. The hotel even stored our luggage until our transportation came to get us so we didn't have to pack it around town with us. I would stay there again and a […] gain.

This is my second visit to an Aqua brand hotel. Comfortable, affordable, good location. Clean rooms, wonderful beds! Decent staff.

"a block from the beach - easy to get around"
hotel was 'pleasing'. we got what we paid for. needed a room for 6 people and got a room with 3 queen-sized beds, but limited seating area and not a separate area. room could have been a bit larger - but i guess we got what we paid for in Honolulu - quite an expensive city! hotel staff pleasant considering we were 'supposedly' in the middle of a hurricane-to-be […] - never happened as the storm went west. not the hotel's fault that the city almost entirely shut down and i'm talking about even the city buses were not running. the hotel itself was clean and the staff personable and quite helpful. the rooms - based on our accommodations - in dire need of updates. lots of construction noise outside and if rooms were updated with newer windows, less outside noise would be heard - including the winds.

Response by Aqua Waikiki Wave Aloha. It's great to hear that you were pleased with the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel's staff and cleanliness although we are sorry to hear of your experience having been here in Waikiki during a hurricane warning. Luckily for us and all of our guests the storm diverted. We certainly can understand how frustrating this may be for anyone traveling to the area. Although not a common situation, the safety of all residents and guests are top priority here in the city and therefore it may cause closures of establishments and transportation. Your comments and suggestions will be shared with our team, mahalo.
"Dog friendly stay"
We are local residents of Oahu. We booked this hotel to stay in with our dogs while our house was being treated for termites. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and friendly staff. I would recommend this place as a good value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location at reasonable price"
The hotel is an older hotel. The location is right in the middle of Honolulu. There is no ramp so if you have a wheel chair or baby stroller it can be inconvenient. It has been updated since it was the Coral Reef but it still needs updating. The bathtub didn't drain properly, and one day our room wasn't cleaned. The first night someone's car alarm kept […] going off, and it was annoying, but that could happen anywhere. However, the staff was pleasant. If you want a convenient and reasonable place it is fine. If you want luxury, it is not your place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
