We stayed at the hotel before, at this time I booked on line and they offered 2 bedrooms. I thought it was great. When I got there, besides having to wait extra 2 hours for the room tomb ready (Sunday), another couple cancelled and left, we were surprised to see that our room was not inside the hotel, but in a building across the street. When we hot […] there we saw so many strange people, asking for cigarettes and in and out whispering etc. The apartment was very simple, no free internet, etc as soon as i entered the bathroom there was visible hair in tub and on top of toilet seat cover.. i cleaned the tub, since my son is young and wanted to use the tub. that early evening we saw some young man and a girl leaving as we entered the complex and soon enough we hadn't even got inside the apartment, these kids got another guy on the street and started fighting and the guy went down and they started kicking him and soon enough the police closed the corner street. paramedics came in. we were so scared and thank God my son was not able to understand the lights blinking outside. we locked ourselves inside every night and put a chair to hold he door, so scared we were. I was informed they are discontinuing that part of the hotel, and I am sad i was not informed they had long term renters. i would never stay at that hotel again. you need to fix this issue.

"Good hotel with great location"
Overall very good, best thing is location which is excellentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Parking was too far but still affordableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Except for lack of internet it was the perfect place for us to stay. We found out two days after we got there that there was both a Starbucks and a McDonalds less than two blocks away. Both have wi-fi. Yes, the hotel is older but it was clean and had good amenities. Elevator card system was a disaster! Need to get rid of it totally! Emyl was a godsend […] at helping solve internet problems! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice hotel at affordable rateGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was ok except no wifi and they charge you for amenities and the room cleaning crew are very slow. Other than that it was ok.....have lots of eating places around and the variety is goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic Koi ponds & streams. Buffet dinner was very expensive in the restaurant & not very good. The breakfast was great & reasonably priced. The pool is very small and old. The rooms were clean & comfortable but old & worn out, there is a sink in the bathroom plus one in the sleeping area???? Parking was $10. The other building & pool shown on web […] site has been sold so it's no longer a part of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I especially loved the ponds with the fish! Made it a point, whenever I could, to use the walkway around the ponds even if it made the walk a little bit longer!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Would not stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It would have been nice if the scheduled maintenance (turning off the water) for a day was told to me prior to arriving. Laundry machines were broke and laundry room was flooded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Its fine if you plan to be just sleeping here."
The hotel its self was fine for the price. They had only one of the 2 elevators running almost all day due to some remodel going on. The staff was nice but I waited over 20 minutes multiple time to get on the elevator. The restaurant at the hotel closed early almost every night and would not honor the 10% discount the hotel told us about. Happy hour […] made up for this. Beer was pretty cheap. Overall the stay was fine but if you are headed to Hawaii for vacation I would find something closer to downtown Waikiki. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Huh? Across the street?"
I chose Pagoda because it was cheap and I was moving into a new house in just a few days and my company sponsored temp housing had run out. Little did I know I would NOT be staying at the Pagoda, but the Terrace Annex across the street. Needless to say, dragging the luggage cart half a block was not my idea of a good time. The room was old (but clean) […] and had a full size refrigerator and stove. It was a bargain considering rooms just a few blocks away in Waikiki. Just be sure you specify main building if you make reservations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the third time that we have stayed in the tower side of the Pagoda Hotel. Although it is an older hotel, it is very conveniently located with a short walking distance of the Ala Moana Mall and a Walmart, were everything can be found. Also there are many good quality small restaurants nearby. The staff have always been very helpful, friendly […] with great quality of service. The hotel also has a very nice, but small pool that is fun for the children. Within a short drive is downtown Honolulu and Wikiki Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First time entry welcomes one to a strange rather offensive smell at 9th floor. Cannot say about other floors. Overall due to great location, hotel is satisfactory. staff were friendly & helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall, Great Stay"
One of the best hotels I've had for the price. They do hold back things like internet, but... I mean... You're in hawaii... and I just tethered to my phone when I needed to get online. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to the island.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for cost"
Im happy that we had a great place for the size of our party. Parking was challenging but available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived at the Pagoda, check in was quick and staff were very friendly. We stayed in the terrace side of the hotel. As soon as we opened the door and turned on the lights 1 very large roach ran across the floor in front of us. We killed it. Turned on the lights in the bedroom and there was another one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Once run-down, now much better!"
We had taken the Pagoda off our list for Honolulu accommodations because it had become a dive, with unsavory characters on the grounds, etc. The new ownership/management has done well to improve the property and keep the riff-raff away. We are now comfortable staying there. The rooms are clean and the staff is responsive.Genuine Expedia guest review
Being that we only needed a place to sleep, we booked the Pagoda. There is nothing fancy about it. The area the hotel is located in was close to the Baisdel and the mall-where we needed to be.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Economical price, close to restaurants, +amenities"
inexpensive hotel, nice staff, restaurant, convenience store, laundry facilities and swimming pool best place to stay for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Building and rooms are dated and could use some upgrading. Window air was good enough to keep the room comfortable. But everything is kept clean. Only thing we didn't care for during out stay was that there were no curtains on the windows to block out the sunlight if one wanted to sleep in a little.Genuine Expedia guest review
"kinda like camping"
this is the right hotel for certain kinds of stays - ie if you are going to be out and about enjoying a vacation in hawaii and are on a budget. Think of it as a part time job - staying somewhere less than ideal to save money. It is a very convenient location. If you are here on a romantic getaway and will be staying in the hotel a lot, the terrace section […] across the street from the main hotel was not great. Don't know how the tower would have been. Check in was a VERY slow process, so allow plenty of time before your first scheduled commitment. The personnel at the front desk were kind and helpful, but for some reason the process was very slow.

"Good Price - Accomodating Service"
Rooms are fairly priced and fairly clean; service is friendly and accommodating. Conveniently located for short stays (24 hour restaurant and shops within walkable distance).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good enough two-night stay"
Be aware parking is an additional $10/day - but cheapest of those that charge extra for it. Very few spots available on the grounds so we always ended up in the multi-story public parking structure across the street, some spots are really tight, but it is secure. The room was old, beds not comfortable at all - I advised the staff to at least turn the […] mattresses, curtains hardly close and are NOT black-out. Was surprised how quiet the neighborhood was and noises within the hotel didn't come inside the room - but we sleep with a sound conditioner - good advice for all travelers. Nice to be so close to the Ala Moana shopping Center and the other shopping at Don Quixote's and food court. Would stay again. Heard the buffet is great, but it wasn't available the nights we stayed.

"Below expectations, not your money's worth..!"
Upon arrival at the hotel lobby at around 1:00 pm, I was told to wait until 3:00pm for official check out time. At 3:00pm, I was told again to wait another 1 hour, as my room is not ready yet for occupancy. Upon check-in at around 3:45pm, I was never given an instruction nor information that I was booked at a different building at the nearby area. Instead […] of Pagoda Hotel, it was Pagoda Terrace. I waste sometime in going up and down from Pagoda Hotel without knowing that I was booked to the other building. I am frustrated with the front desk attendant, named Jesamyn (or Jassmyn). The lady was very irresponsible, unfriendly, and unaccommodating. I suggest that she should be removed from her post and reassign to housekeeping probably. Upon entering my room, I smell stinks or foul odor. This is further escalated by wet and sticky floor matting and old type foul smell of the area. On my 2nd day of stay, I noticed that full housekeeping was not done in my room. Minor cleaning was done on the toilet and bath, while light fixing on the bed. All used glass, spoon and fork were left behind untouched on top of the sink. The entire kitchenette was never been cleaned. I asked the front desk---(which happened to be Jesamyn again) about the uncleaned kitchenette, she said that thorough room cleaning is being done every 3 days. On my 3rd day, I asked to be transferred for a better room. I got what I want but the room replacement has no WIFI connection. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pagoda Hotel is a favorite among locals for its convenient location away from the crush of tourists in Waikiki. The rooms are a little worn around the edges, but are clean and comfortable - just don't expect fancy. Great location if you're not renting a car as many stores and restaurants that locals go to are within a block or two, as well as Ala Moana […] Shopping Center.

"Trips to Oahu"
When ever I go to Oahu, I always check Pagoda first before anywhere else. It is conveniently located and lots of parking are available. It is a place where people recognizes you upon your return, a family atmosphere. This last visit was a last minute visit as there was an emergency in my family. I was not able to check on the same day that I arrived […] as I was in the hospital from the time of my arrival and it was great that my room was kept until I was able to leave the hospital.

"Pleasant Stay for 3 Days"
I booked our stay only two days before we got there. I also requested to have two queen beds in our room. When we arrived the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We were in our room within 10 mins after we arrived. We also had two queen beds as requested. After reading some reviews I was hesitant to book at the Pagoda but the price was very […] reasonable. However, I thought the room was nice. Not a five star hotel but definitely not a cheap hotel. I called room service for more towels and they brought them up right away. They also serviced our room daily with fresh new towels. The location is also convenient. The parking is $10 a day but there are other hotels for more. Also, they are near a lot of attractions, Ala Moana Shopping Center and Don Quijote (a store that sells just about everything for a great price). There are also a lot of places to eat at within walking distance. Also, everywhere we tried was so delicious, we were never disappointed. The nice hotel staff is also a reason why I would book at the Pagoda Hotel again. Especially with my last minute booking and special request. Overall, I would definitely stay there again.

"Terrible stay right from the start!!"
Our room was not available at check in time at 3:00 making us late for our scheduled event. When our room did become available we were given one that had not yet been cleaned! Beds were made and the room may have been vacuumed but there were dirty towels on the bathroom floor and trash in the trash bins. Also the room that I reserved did not have the […] size of beds that I requested. I called front desk to have us relocated. We were relocated hours later into a room where the bed situation was correct but we had a bathroom tub that did not drain! Also the keys to the gates that lead to the rooms did not work and we had to stand in the rain while I tried to get in touch with the front desk. We were eventually let in by an intoxicated stranger that "hung out " near the gate! I called to speak with the manager whom they said would call me back but never did!! Overall: Old, dirty rooms and poor customer service!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheapest hotel to stay and close to shops"
The hotel is under renovation. It was confusing to find my hotel room due to the entrance had a posting stating that I could not enter but it was the entrance to enter. I needed to call the front desk for more clarity and front desk person needed to come out and show me where I needed to answer. He stated that the sign was not taken down and he apologized […] for the inconvenience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worked in a pinch"
Good sized room in older hotel. We missed our flight and need a room for a night while we waited for a next day flight. Only one ice machine, downstairs. We were told they of erred a balcony and small kitchen, we got neither. Microwave, safe and refrige in the room. Overall comfort ok. Small window air conditioner was old but really cooled things off. […] Beds comfortable enough but could have used a blanket. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"10 day vacation, April 2014."
Staff were really nice and had great customer service. Though I wish parking was free, it was much cheaper than any other hotels in the area. It was $10 a day right across the street from the hotel. Love the breeze blowing through the lobby area and most of the days we didn't have to use the AC (varies on weather and time of year you stay)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable Hotel - Near Malls & Restaurants"
We were in Honolulu to take care of personal business at the Federal Building and to visit relatives and friends. If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel, in walking distance to the Ala Moana Shopping Center, WalMart, Ross and nearby restaurants, then, I recommend the Pagoda Hotel. If you decide not to rent a car, there are shuttles that you can […] take to Waikiki, Ala Moana Shopping Center or the Aloha Tower. You may also book tours from the hotel if you wish to experience the Island of Oahu and Honolulu. We were delighted with their breakfast in which they give off 10%. Also, for dinner they have either a buffet or a menu to choose from. We were very pleased with the food and the staff that worked at the restaurant. Everyone were very friendly including the maids. We also enjoyed the drive-in that was located next door to the hotel, and it was packed with local people as they were open 24 hours on weekends, and you could order a variety of food on the menu. Although Wi-Fi is not free, we are still willing to stay at the Pagoda due to it's moderate price, convenience to shopping centers and access to downtown business districts, away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, and lots of choices to choose from in regards to restaurants which are all in walking distance. You don't need to rent a Car to go to the beach, malls or restaurants. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, close to center ofl city"
Mostly all was good except after I arrived home I realized I left my I -phone charger plugged into the wall. I called the hotel that night and they said they would let room service know in the morning. They never called back. I called again the next day and talked to room service. They said they would check and call me back in a half hour. That was […] yesterday, I am still waiting for the call. Meantime my phone is not working. I will need to buy another charger.

"Perfect Spot for the Less-Finicky Traveler"
From the phone call we made circling the block trying to figure out the parking situation to the early morning check-out every employee was courteous and helpful. It was very well-located with many different dining options very close by. We ate breakfast at the Pagoda Restaurant one morning - it was moderately priced but hearty and filling. Be sure […] to check out the Koi pond! Parking took some getting used to as we had to park in a commercial parking tower across the street and keep track of the ticket given to us that showed we already paid. Plenty of shopping nearby; at least one large mall, some designer outlets, a few boutique stores - not to mention a Ross, Walmart & Sam's Club, in addition to a salon AND a spa -- all within walking distance. Also within walking distance? The beach. It was super crowded the day we strolled down there, and we weren't happy with the litter strewn on the sand and washing up with the waves (used toilet paper and assorted trash)...but I'm not sure if that is a regular occurrence since we didn't go back. Instead, we headed to North Shore and it was easy to do as the hotel location is also central to the freeways and highways. The rooms are simple, but clean with no frills and the air-conditioning worked beautifully! (Desperately needed after hiking Koko Head and Diamond Head, so fully appreciated!) We got a great deal on Hotels.com and will HAPPILY book again if we're fortunate enough to return to Hawai'i and need accommodations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
