Awesome location. Staff was great! Hotel was in great shape, but the rooms/balcony could use some updating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An affordable upscale hotel on Waikiki Beach"
View is lovely, staff are professional but friendly. Enjoy the easy walk to Ala Moana park & shopping center. Also enjoy the beach walk to Waikiki. Was highly entertained when Hawaii 5-0 happened to be filming on site one morning. The Ilikai works for us because we like to walk but it could be a distance for those with small children. The lagoon is […] a nice safe area for children or non-swimmers to recreate. Would choose it again over the competition next door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not the Best experience when you arrive"
Since we arrived the problem was finding a valet, we had to carry our bags upstairs because there was a Big Sign in the Electric Stairs No bags allowed, we tried to check in, but they gave us our room until 3pm (It was 8am) It was 30 minutes until we found the Valet to keep our bags until 3pm, and he was not friendly, looked like he was doing us a favor. When […] we finally got our room we had to call housekeeping to go up and clean again the floor which was covered in hair! On the way out, we had luck I guess cause the Valet was someone else and he was in a good mood Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fit for an older crowd. 50 yrs and over."
the chair and bedding smelled like sweaty people had been lying on it. my airconditioning unit dripped on the ground constantly. the room just had a foul odor to it. It seemed to be more for an older crowd 50 years and older. Very small pool area with not enough lounge chairs. Had to always wait for a chair.Genuine Expedia guest review
"golden girls dusty room"
We didn't expect much but we didn't expect a very dusty room and bathroom with moldy tile and shower. We had to perform our own plumbing to turn off the bathtub faucet and the service from personnel was the worst we had in Hawaii. We were talked into "upgrading" to an ocean front room that was really a city front room with only a view of the ocean from […] one end of the lanai. When I opened the shower door I got some silver goo all over my hand that wouldn't come off till the third good scrubbing. The concierge almost always had the "be back in 5 minutes" sign up and when they came back we waited for 40 minutes before giving up. The lobby decor was nice but the rooms were a flash back to the golden girls era with dust all over the floor boards and all over the bathroom doors. You couldn't open the door without getting dust on you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice older hotel"
The hotel is located near Waikiki Beach and many shops. The reason I didn't rate the hotel higher is because the shower is a little run down and has a shower curtain, no tub and the water pressure was weak. The sink back-uped and there is NO dresser space which was inconvenient because we had to live out of our suit cases. We had a kitchen which was […] nice and they provided plates, cups and a few cooking essentials. Unfortunately our room faced East and you couldn't open the curtains or sit on the balcony during the day because it was just too bright and hot. It was very nice in the evening though and you could see the HIlton's firework show next door. Ate at the bar and grill one night and had the worst hamburger and onion rings ever, frozen and re-heated food. Nice bar atmosphere though and staff was nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, but the hotel is showing it's age."
This hotel has a great location, but is showing it's age. The pool is very small and the amenities are sparse compared to other hotels in Waikiki. The positives are it's location to the beach, lagoon, and Ala Moana. Walking along the beach gives great access to all the hotels, and puts you in easy reach of International Marketplace.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a beautiful room with a fantastic view. The room was spacious and comfortable with a full kitchen and wall to ceiling window for the entire wall facing the ocean -- lovely balcony. The only minor issue was waiting for the bellman with our luggage when we left -- but that was a minor issue. Over all we loved our stay at the Ilikai.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good experience after years away"
New management since I last stayed at the Ilikai - nice change and helpful staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hawaii Thanksgiving 2012"
We've stayed here before - very enjoyable. Great Views. The pillows could use some work, and the rooms could use some updating...but nothing major. Dinner at Sorrento's was great - but remember to tell them up front that you are a hotel guest if you want the 15% discount...they gave ma a hard time and only gave me 10% back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ilikai is semi-convenient even though it's at the end of the strip. It's right next to the Modern Hotel which is nice if you would like to go to a nice bar. There are some restaurants close to the area and walking distance to the ala moana mall which makes it an ideal hotel that's not too busy, yet close enough for shoppingGenuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant atmosphere and all employees we encountered were helpful and ready to help whether it be driving directions, restaurants, etc.. Enjoyed the view from our room. Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok hotel at a good price."
Had a nice stay. Good location, hotel room is ok, but the whole property needs some "shining up" to compete with the surroundings.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for 50's..."
The room was large and comfortable with a balcony which had a city and mountain views.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay and would definitely return - enjoyed the extras like microwave & refrigerator. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. We were there during Tsunami alert and was impressed with the hotel preparedness in keeping us updated and implementing precautionary measures. Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Book 'em Dano!"
The room was large and comfortable- well-maintained - and the view was terrific. We really love the blended retro/modern vibe and being on the outer edge of the Waikiki scene. Good surfing nearby and nice beaches to hang out on . This is the hotel we prefer to stay in and it looks like they've continued to upgrade some things the past few years.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had great time at the Ilikai, would recommend to couples, for a great value. Closed to beach and restaurants. Hotel was clean, staff very friendly. Outside bar, nightly music and cheap drinks, compared to most hotels in area, will stay at the Ilikia next year for sure. Alot of bang for your buck!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with Ocean view"
Great hotel for family. Nice ocean view and walking distance to beach..Hotel staff are very helpful and kind.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the price."
Our king size suite was very spacious. The walk to the beach was far because you have to walk around the Hilton's lagoon. To find an area where the water wasn't so close to the boats was an even longer walk. If you want to be close to the beach and shops and restaurants, this hotel was not the place. Otherwise, the hotel experience was wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was friendly. The room was large and clean. My only complaint with the room was that the inner bathroom was dark, with the shower and toilet smelled moldy and I could see mold on the back of the bathroom door. The shower/tub in the outer bathroom was OK. I would have given a higher rating if the bathroom wasn't moldy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Value on Waikiki"
Good service, nice ambience. Good location and Value for the money. The pool is small and no hot tub. We had a nice time!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel with a beautiful view"
My experience with this hotel was really pleasant and the place is beautiful. The only problem that I had was there were no amenities (continental breakfast, free coffee), the reason I say this is, is because quite a few activities which are planned (tours) are in the early morning and some people would like to get some fresh coffee, before they go […] out on their excursions. Overall, very good experience and a beautiful place. Would recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The rooms are in need of updating.....SERIOUS UPDATING! Our carpet was stained, the drapes are filthy AND smell, our sheets had stains on them so I asked the maid to change them!!!!

"Great location, tired property, under staffed!"
Tired property: baths need updating, elevators slow, fininshes out of date. Low level of staffing and waiting was constant where in restuarant or front desk.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is a bit older, has a smaller, outdated pool and isn't right on the beach, but otherwise, it's amazing. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, the view I had, which was of the city rather than the Ocean, was pretty incredible. The Service staff from reception to concierge, etc, were all very friendly and helpful; the location is excellent […] in terms of surrounding area, beach and airport, and the price was more than fair! Great accommodations, great price! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great panaramic view...close to everything"
We have had an excellent experience staying in Iilkai...short walk to everything you need...restaurants (Ihop, Red Lobster,Todai, McDonald,) shops..Ala Moana shopping center in a walking distance. 3 min walk to the beach...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great time in Oahu"
Couldn't be happier. The hotel was very close to all things in Waikiki. The beach and lagoon were literally steps away. I had a room with an ocean view and balcony that was great to use each morning. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in finding things or giving recommendations. Wish parking was free but parking in public pay parking was […] a good option. It is behind the hotel. An enterprise rent a car is across the street so doing a day rental was very convenient. Free wifi was a bonus. Very pleased with the stay overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect place to stay!"
Great hotel with the best views. Within easy walking distance from anything you could want, but far enough from busy Waikiki.Genuine Expedia guest review
"open and airey"
The hotel was well-located and well-appointed. We loved the open airiness of the first level and the convenience of the bar and grill. However, bell and front desk service could be improved. When we arrived there was a number of bell hops at the curb. Once we unloaded our luggage out of the cab, there were no bells available and we had to dragged our […] luggage up the stairs on our own. When I mentioned this to the front desk attendant, the comment was met with a shrug ~ no apology. Other than that, service was acceptable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rude and not pleasant (at all)"
Upon arrival at 10:30pm, Valet/Bell Hop did not offer to assist with bags. I waited at valet desk for help. When informing of my check-in, they appeared surprised and acted as if I was a bother. When going to the registration desk, the man checking us in, was not pleasant. He did not smile and lacked the spirit of aloha. Again, we felt that we were […] a bother to him and he did not enjoy his job. (He should not be at the front desk greeting any guest!!!) He also did not offer information about the hotel ammenities. Only offered a pool towel card and stated that if we eneded towels to bring the card and we could get towels. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great local hotel with great staff"
We love the bar!!!! And everyone working there. Especially the manager who went out of his way beyond words to please us. Location was good. Near the ala moana mall. Known for it's big selection for shopping and dining. 5 minutes walking from the beach. Cleaning staff was great. Overall service was great for the price we paid.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel on Wakiki"
Wonderful hotel. The only negative things, if you can call them that, are that there is only valet parking at the property, and the beach is a 5 minute walk, around the lagoon. We will certainly stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient to main Waikiki beach area"
The Hotel facilities were very good, the room was very comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. I would stay there again. The only drawback to the facility was a lack of a moderately-priced venue for meals on the premises, although there are many restaurants close by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a view"
Couldn't have been happier with my stay at the Ilikai. 25th floor. Yahoo!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ilikai Hotel and Suites in Waikiki"
Not sure why, but everytime I go to Hawaii I feel like I have been transported back in time about 20 years. The hotel is nice, location is great withing walking distance to the main shopping areas, restaurants, etc. Staff was great - very friendly and helpful. Room was big and comfortable with a great view as I was on the 22nd floor. The only minor […] setback, and it's not even a complaint by any means, is that everything is slightly dated. The hotel itself, rooms, etc. seemed as if we were again in late 80's. Gym is also slightly dated, but it is adequate and everything works. Overall the hotel is clean, nice, very good location, and I do recommend it, having stayed at many other places in Hawaii. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Return to Ilikai after 38 yrs."
First time i went to Hawaii as a tourist 38 yrs ago, we stayed at the Ilikai. Thought we'd rebook for this trip for nostalgia. Still prefer Maui to Ohau but this is where our cruise from Sydney took us. Honolulu to me is NY City with colored shirts. The hotel was mostley as I remember it with some signifigant changes. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed […] the layover for 5 days before our return flight home. I think that the value of this hotel stay was right for me compared to others that I looked at. Eveything about the hotel was great. The same man who lights the tiki torches and blows the conch shell in the afternoon was a lot younger the first time we witnessed it. Had a long talk with him and will send him photo's I have from 1974 of him. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location, Expensive Parking"
The location is prime and it also happens to be the locale of the opening scene of the original Hawaii five-O. I'll be staying here again. The bar on the patio is great but don't stay here if you are looking for a great pool. This is great spot to watch the green flash.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our second stay at Ilikai. Nice motel and freindly staff. Motel honored our request and placed us on the 25th floor.Genuine Expedia guest review

"spacious room, good hotel to stay with family"
We liked this hotel. Location is good, but at the edge of waikiki beach, so not the best location. I would have preferred staying at the other edge of the waikiki beach, closer to international market place and zoo. Room is spacious, a little old, but comfortable. Free WiFi is a plus. Their pool is good, service is good. Balcony is spacious. We had […] one ocean view and one mountain view room, both delivered a view. Not great view, but kind of nice.

"Check the room before taking it"
I pre-paid for an ocean view room but was given a non-ociean view room upon checking in. It was only after my compliant to the manager that I was given an ocean view room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ilakai was wonderful."
This hotel is located right in the heart of downtown Waikiki within walking distance to all you need. Our room was great. They upgraded us for free to an ocean view suite!! The hotel is right on al moana harbor If you like to check out boats. There is a definable art deco feel of this hotel but with real modern amenities. The pool is a little small […] but hey you're in Hawaii you should be swimming in ocean anyhow! I would return 100% Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
