"pay extra for ocean view"
We had a nice room but partial ocean view was exactly what we got. We were situated on the 8th floor & could not sit on balcony or have door open for fresh air as air conditioners on adjacent building were extremely noisy- not to mention the loud music on Friday night. I did ask if we were able to upgrade to ocean view view ( I was more than happy to […] pay extra) but was told no rooms were available & that I could check daily ( I would have thought I could have been placed on a list & contacted to discuss if one became available so I did not bother. The room was very clean & central to beach & shops. I was disappointed that I paid extra for a view that I could not use. If I stayed again I would just have a King room.

"Hotel right in middle of Waikiki"

"The place to be."
We had a great experience time after time. We enjoy the staff there and we feel the Aloha Spirit from them.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, heart of the strip."
Upon arrival, we greeted by their valet and our car was unpacked and bags were taken to our room. The parking fee is expensive at $30 dollars a night but it's the price to pay for convenience. Later to find out I received 50% off of parking for having a military ID card, that was a plus. The outside of the hotel was in need of renovations but the cleanliness […] of the rooms and the hotel staff made that irrelevant. It is right in the middle of the strip and had the convenience of having the international market place right next door. The beach is a 3min walk away for the entrance and the views from the kalakua king room was amazing. Overall a great stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great choice for location and $! We were thrilled!"
We couldn't have been happier with our hotel choice! Our trip was a family vacation, first visit to Oahu. Husband age 41, wife age 41, sons aged 15 & 12. We went with the "partial ocean view" and that made a huge difference in how much we loved our choice. We had the most stunning view on our balcony. The walk to the beach was easy and safe - truly […] about 300 steps. All staff we encountered were extremely friendly and always smiling. It is next to the International Market, which adds to the "perfect" location. I strolled around there almost every night. Also should mention that inside the IM is an ABC store - which is like a Walgreen's if you need to buy "drug store" type items for less than you would pay in the hotel gift store, and also more selection. For blocks around there are high end stores intermingled with local shops and affordable brand name stores. (I wasn't there to shop!) The resturant in the hotel was dissapointing (Jimmy Buffets) the food wasn't well prepared, and everything from the meat to the buns were stale and dry. BUT - it wasn't a big deal because you are within walking distance of almost any kind of food or resturant you can name. Cheesecake Factory across the street. California Pizza Kitchen next door. Atlantis Steak and Seafood next door. My boys even found the Golden Arches. There are 6 elavators, and they are fast. Our room was always clean. Noise was never an issue. The mini fridge was really handy. Expedia desk next to the checkin desk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A comfortable hotel at convenient location!"
The hotel is a standard Holiday Inn style: not luxury but quite comfortable. The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful, as usually. Location of the hotel is excellent. Easy to take bus to other other attractive spots. 5 minutes walking to Waikiki beach. Being surrounded by shops and stores, resturants, food court and markets, Holiday Inn Resort […] at Waikiki is a good choice for torrists who'd like to experience the commercial side of Honolulu.

"Across from the Royal Hawaiian"
Everything was very acceptable! We were on the 7th floor, and it was a bit noisy from street activities, which I'm sure could not be helped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central but noisy"
Motel more than hotel, because we had not booked direct with this hotel felt issues were ignoredGenuine Expedia guest review

At first I wasn't impressed with the hotel, but it grew on me. The only thing I was disappointed in was the room had a musky smell to it but that went away after a few days. The hotel staff was phenomenal and very friendly. My husband lost his wallet and between the Outrigger and the Beachcomber they found it!!!! Everyone was extremely friendly!!! For […] the price- I recommend this hotel, just a short walk to the beach! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We were so pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The room was very clean. We had a beautiful view from the 24 floor. Beach access was real close. Would definitely recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel right in the middle of Waikiki!"
We stayed here for a week and found it to be a great location. We rented a car and used the valet service at the hotel! The staff was excellent as was the concierge service! You might want to ask for a room at an upper level for a better view, didn't make much difference with us as we were not in there much. The beach is right across the street and […] there are many restaurants in walking distance! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Waikiki Beach"
Great hotel room, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, perfect location with a short walk (literally about a 2 minute walk) to Waikiki Beach. The staff was super helpful in booking a day trip to Maui. Rooms were comfortable and my partial-ocean view room actually had a fantastic view with the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other. Had a […] great stay here and would absolutely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful view of the Waikiki Strip"
The hotel was clean, quick and efficient. Service was great and the hotel housekeeping kept our room squeaky clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great price for its location!"
Location of hotel was at the center of Waikiki. You're right across the street from the beach but to gain public access it's about 3-5 minute walk. Just grab towel in the morning from the pool and head over to the beach! Pool is small but has a hot tub. Free wifi, $30 for hotel guest parking. Overall this hotel was great, I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was clean, but dated. Beds were small, no tub in our room, but really it's Waikiki how much time are you going to spend in the hotel room :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Its right across from the royal hawaiian and the main shopping areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel is right in the middle of everythiTheir"

The beach is a short walk if you find the short cut. Lots of restaurants and shops close by! The tour company we used would either pick us up at this hotel or close by. The magic show here was pretty amazing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good Stay in Waikiki Area"
I enjoyed our one night stay at the hotel on our way to Kona. Great location, room was as expected and the staff were very friendly. I would stay here again, great value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I read all reviews about that hotel before we booked and was positively surprised. The rooms looked new (refurbished), the beds were comfortable. The pool has a feasible size and is directly at Jimmy Buffets and Surf Museum (bar in the hotel). The beach is close and there are many restaurants and shops in walking distance. Bus stop is also close (2 […] blocks). Our balcony was above the air conditioners of the next building which was a bit noisy at first when we sat on the balcony, but we got used to it. Shadow spaces at the pool are very limited in the afternoon. Overall a good price performance ratio. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I stayed here for three days and overall was a great experience. Breakfast was great, but Jimmys was expensive! The maids were so kind, but the travel help people were rude! Lucky for me I knew where to go and how to get tickets. Overall, I could walk any where I wanted to unless it was really far I took the bus.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Waikiki Beach Hotel, right on the strip"
Room was clean. Furnishings were modern & updated. Nice Sink & shower area. Nice refrigerator. Elevator was kinda slow to show up all the time. The Jimmy Buffet restaurant could have been better. The atmosphere was fun and enjoyable at Jimmy Buffets Margarittaville. I ordered a steak, but for the same price I had better prepared steak dinners at other […] local restaurants. Try the Cheesecake Factory across the street or the Hilton Prince Kuhio-24/7-MAC restaurant for a great steak dinner. My wife & I enjoyed the 'Magic of Polynesia Show', that is performed on premises @ the Waikiki Holiday Inn Beachcomber. We bought discount tickets for it on the Navy Base @ Pearl Harbor. I would stay there again. Short walk to Waikiki Beach. Great location right on the strip. Overall a great stay & a great Hawaiian vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Home for the weekend!"

Mahalo (thank you), Pam Y., Asst. GM
The room is pretty nice. We got a partial ocean view. Don't expect too much from that 'partial' ocean view. It is really a tiny part between two buildings. The escalator was broken when I was there, so it is inconvenient to get street level. Valet parking staff are very very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber Aloha nnbw, Thanks so much for your comments. Our escalator went down unexpectedly and it definitely wasn't pretty, but thanks so much for your patience. Glad to hear that our valet team took good care of you. And we're most glad that you had a nice stay. Come visit us again! Aloha, PamY, Asst. GM
Excellent location, very clean room, professional staff. Only downside, no self parking, all cars must be valet parked.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Resort Waikiki Beachcomber Aloha Michael, Thank you for your comments. We do have an excellent location right in the center of Waikiki with so much surrounding us. I appreciate your comments on our staff; that's great to hear. I know parking is at a premium in Waikiki but I do hope that you took your car and enjoyed all the rest that our island has to offer.

Thanks so much for the recommendation and I hope that it doesn't take you very long to visit our islands once again. Aloha, Pam Yagi Assistant General Manager
The staff was great. The room was fine. Not outstanding but comfortable enough. We faced west and got a complementary upgrade to partial ocean view on the 14th floor. However, the 'view' was a tiny sliver that really didn't warrant the term 'view.' In addition, even with the patio door shut, all we could hear was the incredibly loud a/c unit on top […] of the building next door. Very disappointing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"great location, nice staff"
Perfect location right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. 5 minutes walk to the beach, many, many dining and shopping options in walking distance. The staff is super friendly and accomodating (we changed rooms once and it was not a problem). The rooms are a bit small (especially the bathroom) and we were not able to get a king size bed, […] but those were only minor annoyances. Try to get into a room on a higher floor when you are there. When we stayed here, the hotel was pretty much booked out and we only got a room on the 5th floor overlooking a roof and a huge a/c :-( Late checkout possible when they are not booked out!

Very convenient, in heart of Waikiki. Avoid renting a car except to drive around the island, besides, Shuttles & cabs are plentiful and the hotel parking is too high @ $30/day. Deskman Reid was very gracious and helpful. Don't miss Happy Hour at Shore Bird on the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for couple and family"
I have a wonderful time stay at Holiday Inn for 5 days during the Christmas time. It is worthwhile to recommend family or couple who are in honey moon. The hotel closes to the shopping center, Waikiki beach, and food market, which you can walk to reach. Personally, the condition of room is much better than those kinds of expensive hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was clean and convienent. We stayed two nights and talked to several concierges who didn't seem to know what they seem to know what they were talking about and were a little pompus about it. If you are a self-sufficient traveler, the price was right for this one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would rather still be in Hawaii"
Great location for the price. Room size better than most Honolulu hotels and the pool area with the small cafe was great to relax in. Clean and comfortable bed always nice after a long flight.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Be wary of extent of customer service"
When I arrived back to my room one night, I had to call the housekeeping desk for someone to collect the old towels and furnish new towels. Housekeeping apologized and asked if I had the "do not disturb" sign hanging outside my door and I confirmed that I had not. Housekeeping called back asking if I was sure no one had come to clean my room as the […] housekeeper responsible for cleaning my room had logged my room in as having been cleaned. I confirmed once again that the room had not be cleaned as everything was left untouched including the tip we left out for the housekeeper. I was thanked for my response and was informed that someone would be notified. Upon check-out, I informed the front desk that I did not receive housekeeping during my full stay at your hotel. Again, I received a quick apology and was informed that I was all set for checking out. There is a sign that sits in the vanity area next to the bathroom sink that indicates that guests should notify the housekeeping desk or the front desk if they have received unsatisfactory service and would not have to pay for that portion of their stay. I spoke with both housekeeping and the front desk and no one mentioned that I would receive any sort of discount for my stay at your hotel. If the hotel does not intend to uphold what it means on that sign posted up in the vanity area, I would suggest that that sign be removed from each hotel room so as to not create false advertising.
