"IN NEED OF A FACE LIFT AND RENOVATIONS"
this hotel is old and it shows it everywhere. the lobby is ok but the corridors and rooms are outdated, in need of renovations and just plain old. the air conditioning in our room did not work that well and the bathroom was so small and everything in it was so ancient. the room was clean. the hotel is quiet which is a plus. the ice and soda room looked […] dirty and needed a coat of paint and some serious cleaning. the hotel is inexpensive and i guess you get what you pay for. not a hotel i would stay in again. location is good--right at entrance to Waikiki area and the service is OK. 25 bucks for parking is outrageous but there is no other place to park. entrance to hotel is a bit tricky as you really have to park your car and then check in.

It's a worst experience we ever had,from the customer service ,the little lanai really dirty,the room is outdated and the worst they charge u for ur local phone call to call for taxi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's all about location"
The hotels.com site advertised the price as including breakfast, but the hotel was not in agreement. Overall the condition of the hotel was so poor, it didn't seem safe to eat food prepared there, so in the end it worked out great. This was because the location was an easy vantage point for walking to dozens of restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Old, run down, hard to find, small & cramped, definitely not worth the money and the $25 valet fee. Don't recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
Relatively not bad, but it would be better if they serve free trolly pass for transportation around Waikiki. It is required to keep clean the airconditioner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is basically a motel"
This is a motel with a nice lobby. The rooms are extremely dated and slightly skeevy (rugs, bathroom,etc). Breakfast costs $10 (not worth it). I stayed here during a 16 hour layover on my way to Asia, and this is the only reason I'd ever recommend staying here. It's a $35 cab ride to/from the airport. The best part of the hotel was the close location […] to Waikiki Beach. The website is totally false advertising. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rude front desk manager"
Our only complaint is there was a very rude front desk manager who's negative and sassy attitude almost had us cancel our reservation she was so unpleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for the weekend."
Great location for shopping, bars, and restaurants. Room was clean and staff was friendly and helpful. AC kept the room nice and cold. Got this room to avoid drink driving. I would stay here again. In fact, I stayed an extra night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was a nice place and great value. We had a kitchenette room which was very convenient. Good location and nice staff! Clean room, outdated, but good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel only if you get a great room"
Got a very nice room with two balconies, but staff proved to be extremely disinteresting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Exceptional for the price"
Staff was professional and very helpful. After reading some reviews online I had no high expectations but I was totally surprised by everyone that I came in contact with. The hotel was clean, location was great and the service I can't say enough good things about.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Save the trouble and stay somewhere else"
No help from anyone. Booked a queen bed on Expedia and had to settle for two single beds. Noisy all through the night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"waste of money"
expensive and not to my expectation as far as charges.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The good : excellent location The bad: hotel quality was bad for the price for just a few more dollars (about 30 more) i could have gone to a much better quality hotel ..... The Ugly hotel is very outdated , old , and halways are dirty most balconies have chicken mesh wire (ghetto) and parking was 25 dollars per day and no off street parking so you […] must pay :>( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family vacation to Honolulu"
The good : Over all hotel was ok very good location ,restaurants near by The bad : Hotel is very outdated everything looks old ( for tourist location) The ugly: Parking is $ 25 per night no outside parking available carpet very dirty on rooms and hallwaysGenuine Hotels.com guest review
good service, comfortable hotel, clean, for price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was great here. I especially liked the balcony view we had. The room was very clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The television in our room was a little dated, but since we didn't go on vacation to watch television it didn't matter too much. The bar was great as well, friendly bartenders and $2 Mai Tai's. can't beat that. […] Overall a great place to stay. We will definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic but comfortable"
Room was very basic but comfortable enough for a one night stay. Very good location across from Waikiki Beach (~5 min walk). Very close to shopping (if that's why you came to Hawaii), restaurants, beach, etc. Lobby was nice, hotel bar was sort of a dive, staff was friendly. Overall decent value for the price I paid.Genuine Expedia guest review
I liked it. I didn't expect a lot but slept well in the big rooms. We had two beds with two different mattresses so we chose the one that was more comfortable. Valet parking was 23$ a day by professional staff. The room is outdated but who cares. We asked for an ocean view and were able to see the fireworks on Friday night. The bathroom was small but […] clean with good water pressure and temp control. The restaurant downstairs is a sports bar so we didn't eat there. Wifi is extra. The one thing I didn't like is the curtain didn't close all the way and if the neighboring lanai wanted to see in they could at all times until I rigged a sheet to cover the exposed opening.

"One night stopover"
The hotel was a little older but decent for the price. It was at a major intersection so there was some traffic noise. Having a sports bar in the hotel was a plus. Close to the beach and we had a good view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern lobby 1980's rooms"
For the price you can't beat it but the rooms definitely need to be modernizedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It wasn't first time there.If the staff were nice to me, (there were much nicer staff of my last visit) my stay was just fine. but unfortunatly,there were two female staff at the front this time. At the time of check in, they were chatting. they knew that I was waiting for more than 30min.Unfortunatly I can't recomend this hotel anymore because of […] it.

"Pleasant staff, good location, nice clean rooms!!!"
I ave to admit, I was a bit surprised at how nice it looked. Clean, easy on the eyes (calm colors through out hotel. Very nice and very helpful staff. I would definitely stay at the Waikiki Gateway Hotel again. Great location as well. Thank You!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close walking distances - affordable"
The room isn't really great, but its comfortable and is a good place to lay your head. The security was very helpful with bags and directions. Everyone was really pleasant. We stayed in a resort in Maui prior coming to Oahu, so I had high expectations. Its affordable and close to most things walking distances of a few minutes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel in a Convient location. The shuttle pick up from the hotel which is great. The cleanliness is poor. The furniture is old the Decore have covers on it. They don't serve complimentary breakfast, food not worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location but room was disappointing"
Convenient location at a good price. Lobby was attractive. The room was not. The room decor was bland, and the carpet looked old. Heard traffic through the night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean and simple"
The room is very clean but has this 60's old look; the carpet is brown, the faucets are worn, the beds have thin cheap blankets instead of bedspreads. again, it is very clean. I left my eye cover in the hotel room, called 2 days later, never got it back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"If you get a great deal, stay there, if not don't"
great location, nice staff... If you can get a great deal on the room then stay there. If not, don't. Rooms need major upgrading....Stained carpet, internet cdharge...Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to business"
excellent location, liked store and restaurant inside hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lobby was nice....that's about it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Keep your shoes on"
The cost of the Hotel did not reflect the condition or cleanliness. I wore my shoes in the room so i did not have to touch the carpet. The location and staff were ok, but the pool was a joke. I did find the buisness center useful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, a nice hotel with friendly and efficient service. Very reasonable price with a great location. However, there were a few things that could have been better maintained. IE...the floor of the bathtub was peeling, there were stains on the towels, and the fitted sheet for the king size bed was a top sheet that was tucked under the mattress which […] lead to it coming off in the middle of the night.

"Reasonable enough for a family."
Ideal location. Beautiful window views of Parks. Reception Staff always willing to assist.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close and cosy"
Mid sized hotel at west end of Waikiki; my roon had a large deck with great views. Hotel staff were very friendly and the place is spotless. A nice change from the mega hotels on WaikikiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Will never stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and looks it"
The bathtub didn't drain properly, you had to shower quickly or drown. The A/C didn't run properly, it sounded like it was dying. The lobby was impersonal as well as the staff. We had to scream over the bar music while we were checking in. The location was good and was within walking distance to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for the price."
Hotel was OK, definitely worth the low price (there was a 60% off deal at the time). Parking is extra, and internet is extra, and so is the room safe. Room was clean but furniture was old, TV was not LCD, but a big old box. Bathroom was old, but was still clean, it had a hair drier. There was large mini fridge and an ice machine on 8th floor. No microwave. […] The only remark we had was that they didn't change our sheets even once over an 8-night stay. They just made our beds with same old sheets. Location is great, ocean view rooms are great, because there's no other buildings to block your view, there's a nice park in front. There's a convenience store and a bar on the first floor. The store is very very useful, it has everything you need in tiny packages. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Parking charge 19 dollar and internet charge 10 dollar.. both per day. Not COOL...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ocean Facing rooms are not actually ocean facing."
It was a good hotel. We opted for a ocean facing room, but ocean view was not actually an ocean view unless you step out of your room and go to the balcony/patio even though we were on the top floor (Floor 16).Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good value for price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tired but OK for price and location"
Stayed in room 1608 after booking a beach view. This was a top floor with massive balcony but it truly was a Mt view as you could only see the beach after being on the railing and looking back. Room and Hotel was tired but OK for price and a two night stay to be close to HI Convention center as this was the reason for the trip. I would not use the property […] for a vacation base. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was way overpriced and sorely in need of some updates and perks. The ONLY decent part was the staff was nice and the location was okay. This did not make up for the 70s decor. The bathrooms were tiny with fixtures that were cool 3 decades ago! I asked for a king bed room and got 2 double beds that weren't very comfortable. The A/C was a wall […] mounted unit that was off when I walked in making the room about 85 degrees. Being that I was on business, Wi Fi was very important and I had to pay $10 per day and it wasn't even free in the lobby! Lastly they charge $19 a day for parking and offer valet only, making you feel required to tip the valet every time even though you have no other option. Not a nice place. Do not stay here unless the price drops way off!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wouldn't stay again"
Nice lobby, good location and that's about it. Rooms are in desperate need of new carpet, furniture and paint. Thankfully we only stayed one night before checking into our timeshare.Genuine Expedia guest review
To be fair, I'm not sure if the problem was with the hotel itself, or Expedia. I've used Expedia numerous times in the past, and was always satisfied. I've been to this hotel once before & was impressed. Granted, I was in one of the penthouse rooms last time. Anyways, the problem I had on this experience was that my booking was for a room with 1 king […] sized bed. But, when we checked in (at 4pm in the afternoon) & got to the room, it had 2 double beds. So, we went back downstairs to the front desk & told them about the mistake (again, we were being fair not to blame the hotel, but possibly due to Expedia). In any case, they said there were no available rooms with a single big bed...other than the penthouse rooms, which will be significantly more $$ per night. They offered to just refund our money if we wanted to go somewhere else. We had already planned our activities, and getting a new room somewhere else would just be 1) more expensive and 2) very inconvenient...so, we just stayed. They said they'll try to see if they can get something for the next night. The next day, as promised, they called to say something else opened up, so we can move. Well, we decided it was more trouble than its worth to pack up everything & move...so we asked if they could somehow compensate us otherwise (my suggestion was taking care of our parking bill)...they said "no". In closing, I'm not sure if it was entirely the hotel, or Expedia, that made the mistake...but we were disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
There is no complimentary breakfast served on the 16th floor /breakfast lounge.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Depends which room you have"
Too much noise when you have rooms in front of the street, there's a lot of traffic. But Ok for the price in Honolulu.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It served its purpose"
Location an staff are the best part. The rooms are ok. I've seen better and worst. Bed is hard, AC old, but it was clean and didn't smell bad. Didn't see the pool, but with the beach blocks away, there was no need. Overall good for shopping an beaching. Not for romanticism or honeymooners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
