Hotel was a little older, but very clean, and the staff was very friendly. They gave us tips on where to eat and how to get places, and were very accommodating.

"nice but add all costs up front please"
Nice large room. Annoying that the Aqua hotels have an additional $15-20/day resort fee for "free" newspaper and coffee in lobby. Just add to your upfront fee and then the extras would be seen as perks vs something I just paid extra money for.

"Kind of low end"
The rate was at the low end so all in all it was alright. The time I was here there is construction all around it, and a lot of Hawaiian thug types in the hotel, a lot of smoking both tobacco, weed and camping. Parking lot pretty noisy throughout the night. I didn't have a bad time here, but I'd likely not stay again

"Good hotel"
I needed another night in Honolulu, so I booked the Aqua Waikiki Pearl. The hotel met all my needs. However, when I went to check in, there was a problem with the name on the reservation. I called Hotels.com, and they fixed the problem. My granddaughter had a sun burn, so the unlimited movies was a real plus. I would stay in this hotel again.

"No parking(don't believe them) with dirty carpet"
No parking available. They will tell you they have parking, but when you get there, all the 10 spots in back are taken. You'll have to park two blocks away (if you're lucky) for $35. Massive construction noise starts at 7:30 a.m. so you won't be sleeping in. There are two different construction sites right beside the hotel. Also there is no direct path to the beach. You'll have to walk around huge the buildings between the beach and the hotel. There's a seedy bar on the street level and a seedy liquor store across the street. You can walk a couple blocks to the nicer hotel to watch people who are enjoying their stay in nice hotels.

"Simple"
Simple as in its just a room that you stay in, go about your day; beach, eat, shop, etc. It is noisy as they are doing construction next door. Nevertheless, the price and location of the hotel, is a plus. Parking is pricey, and resort fee, $15.00 we didn't even take advantage of it (free movie rentals, beach towels, internet, coffee, water). Otherwise, I like that it's close to the big hotels.

The room is quite dirty. Staff promise parking out back and charged 30.00 a day but when it came time to park they sent us blocks away to search at other hotels lots who said no. We are easy going so we eventually found spots butit wasn't what we wanted to spend our time doing. The room was dirty, pillows hard,, but location was fine.

"Bed Bugs"
It was ok until I found bed bugs and checked out immediately. When I notified hotel staff they offered to comp things off the room but there was no mention of heat treatment to any of my things or the space. The gentleman that helped me was very nice but I have a feeling this is not the first time this has happened.

"Not worth the rate"
Checking in was okay, clerk was pleasant however doesn't practice basic Front Desk 101. You should never say a guest room number aloud in public for others to hear. That is a no, no! The rooms was very undesirable. Was not able to walk in the carpet in bare feet as the carpet was just filthy. Bathroom not adequate. Bed not comfortable. Furnishings out of the 1970s. Room overlooked the main outside hallway so no way to let natural light in with lights on in the room. Also faced a parking lot and a building under construction which were not as bothersome as not being able to enjoy natural light. If you stay....at your own risk. If you can afford something better, stay away. There are better Aqua hotels than this one. Stay at Aqua Oasis.

"Very disappointing."
Chose this hotel for the Brand, low price, convenience, and customer reviews. I was disappointed from the time of check in and felt sense of relief when I checked out. I wasn't aware there was construction next door. I would have been nice if that information was added with the hotel info. I was travelling with my infant son and he would be startled awake early in the morning. The main issue I had was the carpet. It was filthy and I left a note along with a tip for housekeeping asking them to clean the carpet. I relayed the same message with the front desk before I left the hotel to attend a few medical appointments for my infant son. I have a 1 yr old boy who crawls around and it's pretty difficult and dangerous for me to keep him on the bed all the time so his hands and feet can stay clean. Sad to say, the carpet wasn't cleaned thoroughly and housekeeping forgot to pick up the blower that was left in the room. Luckily we checked out the next morning. Front desk didn't do much to rectify the problem or even show genuine empathy. Staying at this Aqua hotel ruined me for the Brand. During the stay I did take advantage of the free dvd rentals but unfortunately all the movies I wanted to watch with my son was either very dirty or severely scratched up. WiFi was a bit on and off or very slow at times.

"Modest from the outside but wonderful room"
We live in Waimanalo and wanted to stay 1 night in Waikiki and the Aqua was the least expensive hotel. We spent $10 to upgrade the room at check-in and boy was it worth it! The "mini-suite" was HUGE and the air conditioning was wonderful and very, very quiet. This hotel is deceptive because it looks very average from the outside, but the room is very un-average...it's superb.

"3 Day Visit to Honolulu"
My experience was very brief but memorable for the wrong reason. Hotel NEEDS some attention. Very very Dated, Noisy with construction outside my room door and window from 6.30am everyday. It is really a 2 Star hotel. If you have a rental car prepare to pay a mandatory $25 per night Valet. Rooms are very basic but has essentials - phone, TV, iron & board and complimentary shower toiletries.

"Terrible bugs and cockroaches"
The staff was nice but the overall experience was terrible ,right now the hotel is expanding itself which means every morning at 6 AM you cant sleep at all because the construction noise is too loud.Also because the hotel is very exterior and open every night bugs and cockroaches were in our bathroom which was disgusting and to top it off the final bill was very confusing with ten different taxes,we had a roadtrip in the us for whole summer and never we have had such a confusing bill.But most of all i could bare the noise,the overcharging and a lot of other things but when there are cockroaches and bugs that will end it for me for this hotel thats why i dont reccomend anyone for that price to go there.Im staying anonymous because the hotel was so scetchy with theyr last bill that im afraid to show my name.Only pluss side was the staff and cleaning.

"Very disappointed and frustrated"
We have stayed at this hotel many times for family getaways and this was the worst experience we have had with any hotel ever! First of all, it was a very busy weekend all around Waikiki and at the time of check in, there was only person at the front desk. We waited 30 minutes to be helped! Second, when we were finally helped, we were advised that the 3 bedroom suite that we booked was no longer available and we had been given a separate 2 bedroom and standard room. The whole reason that we stay at this hotel is for the 3 bedroom so that our whole family can be together!! When I asked for an explanation, the lady said simply that these things sometimes happen in order to make accommodations for others. No apology....nothing! Lastly, I called early that morning asking if a rice cooker could be provided and was told that one could be brought up. Upon check in, I asked for one and the rude lady said she would have to look for one as if she were bothered. Turns out, she didn't even call for one and when I called the front desk again the guy said the same thing. And...one was never brought up and we never heard back from either one of them. Long story but don't stay here! The Aqua prides themselves on being a kamaaina hotel chain but there was definitely NO aloha here! Will NOT stay here again! Very sad because this was our favorite hotel....

"Inexpensive hotel but lacks in safety"
We stayed the whole week. We were eager to leave because of several incidents on the premises. We had a knock on the door in rhe middle of the night from a stranger that we saw earlier sitting in the parking lot and watching us enter the room. This was like a motel 5 except a higher price. You could see who is entering what room. Would not recommend this hotel unless you are travelling in large groups .

"Convenient, not plush"
We have stayed at this hotel four or five times on our way back to Colorado from Sydney, Australia. While we love the location, because we can park the car for a day while we attempt to overcome the jet lag, the hotel seems to be showing its age. Depending on your room's location, it can be quiet, or the street noise from downtown Waikiki can be constant and invasive. Parking is limited and the alternative to parking at the hotel can be hard to locate because of all the one way streets. Our most recent room was quite clean, but the hotel itself could use a facelift..

Don't expect to having parking at your hotel as it's not provided. You have to pay $25+ for parking about two blocks over. Room and hotel conditions seem to be lacking, a remodel of the entire facility is needed! Cleaninglyness is also lacking. Overall I would not stay there again, not refer the hotel. Also be mindful of checking out charges, they tried to scan us for an additional $44+ dollars for beach towels that we had decline and parking pass for not parking at there hotel!! Pretty shameful
