"Clean budget-priced hotel 2 blocks from the beach"
We were travelling with another couple. Both of us received recently-renovated rooms that were outstanding. There were minor complaints (getting clean dish and kitchen towels was a hassle), but overall we had a wonderful experience. It's definitely clean and budget-friendly. Sometimes the elevators were slow...you cannot expect a luxury 5-star experience […] on a Days Inn budget. We concluded it was comparable to a Days Inn on the mainland. Staff (especially night clerk named "PT" and supervisor Mona) were exceptional!!! NOTE: Hotel was recently aquired by Aqua Resorts and is undergoing much-needed lobby and room renovations.

"Good for familes."
We got a free upgrade. I rented a one bedroom kit betts and got upgrades to the remodeled one. That was awesome. Me more appliances. Nice view.there is a rice cooker and everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for price"
Place was good for our purpose on Waikiki. Walking distance to shops, beach, dining.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place, affordable and near to the bars and night clubs in the middle of waikikiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice clean place. Very "homey" not elegant. Feels like being in your own studio somewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Two weeks on business: only complaints are (1) erratic and noisy air conditioner, which is not unusual for mid-price hotels these days, and (2) absence of free wi-fi in rooms, which absolutely should be provided. Otherwise it's conveniently located with a variety of restaurant choices, the Ala Wai canal for long walks and freeway access for us working […] stiffs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
although the hotel is older it was fine. all we needed it for was to sleep and shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach but far enough from the beach drama"
The rooms have recently been redone and are very nice. Small kitchenette would be great if you had kids with you. It was a quick 2 block walk to the beach, but you were far enough to where the beach issues of obnoxious youth behavior didn't affect your stay. If you have a car, you had quick access to the highway for wherever you wanted to go.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mostly a good experience"
The hotel room was nice -- balcony for meals and snacks, nice TV and beds, good kitchen set-up plus the convenience of hotel convenience store, laundry, pool and jacuzzi. All were a plus, except the parking and elevator situation. I hated leaving and returning to the hotel. Waiting forever to take one elevator and then hop onto the next to complete […] your trip up to your room. Great location in Waikiki. Service? There was none, but the facilities made up for it on our trip. Overall, I would return. Good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your money"
They charged a ridiculous amount for parking, $70 to be exact. There was no WIFI in the rooms, you had to go down to the lobby. The TV was smaller than my computer and the bed was like sleeping on the sidewalk it was so rigid. The staff was friendly enough, but I guess I wouldn't know how to put a fake smile on and act like this hotel was worth anyone's […] while. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will consider going back"
It was ok. We asked for two beds but only got one. We had to ask for a roll away to accomodate everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice contemporary room."
Only thing that was missing was a hairdryer. The room was lovely, the balcony was terrific overseeing the pool deck and even the laundry area was nice!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Island Colony, Waikiki"
We stayed at the Island Colony from July 19 - 25. We enjoyed the room, the pool, and the close proximity to the shops, restaurants, and beaches of Waikiki. We look forward to staying here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife, son and I were SHOCKED when we saw our hotel room! It looked 100 times better than the internet photos. I assumed the room would be acceptable. However, the room and hotel far exceeded our expectations. Our room was ultra-modern. It was extremely clean. The cleaning staff were very, very friendly and efficient. The hotel front desk staff were […] ALL very friendly and helpful when asked for tourism advice. The hotel was in a PERFECT location. It was very close to the beach of Waikiki, the International Marketplace, a local supermarket (which saved us a lot of money), and city buses (which also saved us a lot of money). We will be returning to Honolulu next year. We definitely WILL stay at the Island Colony Hotel again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Seaside island colony hotel"
It's ok.... The staff are friendly, however I think they could be more informative about the service the offer and what is not offer by the hotel.... Like breakfast, pool service hours and towels to take with you when you go to the beach, as others hotels do it around that area.... My average is 3.5Genuine Expedia guest review
overall satisfied the hotel is in need of remodeling old popcorn ceilings and carpets. door lock 1519 room bathroom does not work.it was a quiet area good view of ala awai staff was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The lobby is not presentable.Limited personnel at the lobby and not around most of the time. Rest rooms are not freely accessible.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pleasantly surprised with view and accomodations. Location is excellent!Genuine Expedia guest review
The room had a kitchenette but no pots and pans and no cooking utensils. We stayed here two weeks ago and the other room had everything you needed. The third day we were there, our door cards (keys) were somehow deactivated so we had to go back to the lobby to re-activate them to get into the room. That was a little annoying. The second day we were […] there, someone put some girls dirty underwear on our door knob. That was very discusting! We really like the location of the hotel, but there are other hotels near by that would suit us just as well. We'll definately look at other options on our next visit.

"Great location, modest room, affordable"
Excellent location. They are making upgrade to the property. great new pool and deck. Rooms are a bit... lived in, but serviceable. Can't beat the price for what you get. Covered parking is $15 a night I think.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and somewhat convenient"
The Island Colony had a vey nice Staff. The room was nice and the balcony (lanai) was great! Off the beaten path, but not too far from many food and shopping conveniences. Parking rates were a little on the high side, however guests were given a discount. One of the few hotels with smoking accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Probably will stay there again."
I really liked the location of the hotel.It's walking distance to just about everything in Waikiki. The only thing that bothered me was the smell of the room. Other than that, it was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okay hotel, but more of a residence"
The room needs updated. The windows don't seal and are VERY Noisy!! The room needs new beds, very small television, though TV is not the reason to be there...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service But"
The hotel has very good service, A man at the front desk, PT was vary helpful and vary nice. The location of the hotel is vary close to wiki beach and is next to a river. The only thing that the island colony needs is to be modernized and i was told that they will soon start on remodeling, other from that i highly recommend this if your looking for […] a non expensive hotel.

25 dollar parking... get some! Front desk staff not a cool. Room was really comfortable and big. I'd stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for "I only need to sleep there""
This is the perfect hotel for familes on a budget and just want a place to sleep while they visit the island. Waikiki is a 3 min walk away. A McDonald's is 3 min's away on foot. There is a nice Chinese place on the corner that opens for early bird breakfast (American Style) I've stayed her 6 timesGenuine Expedia guest review
We spoke to the security attendant about where to go for registration, he told us we could go straight to our room! We then had to ask him again then he directed me to the registration desk. Upon checking we found out we had a hold put on my account and also had to pay $25.00 for parking, which we were never told in advance. Upon completion of checkin […] we were told were to go to get to our room. NO KEY, I had to ask for the room keys. Two hours later we called guest services 3 times for assistance with no response. Nobody picked up or called back. The fan in the room did not work and room was hot. The only thing that my family liked was the mini mart on the 6th floor, They had great service and a large variety of food and supplies. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We love it here!! We are never disappointed and the staff is exceptional!Genuine Expedia guest review
"great for the $"
nice and clean room for the money, pleasant, helpful and friendly staff ( and I wanna commend Leilani, at the front desk), I certainly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to spend some time in Oahu: decent stay for decent money, close to shopping, the beach, atractionsGenuine Expedia guest review
I was surprised but so happy to have a sink, microwave, full refrigerator, and plates/flatware in my room, even though I booked the cheapest rate. The hotel is older and not super fancy, but it was very clean and comfortable and way better than I expected for the price. The only things I didn't like were that they put me on the bottom floor, where you […] get the pool/mini mart noise; and I had to locate housekeeping within the parking lot and sign a paper in order to get a beach towel. I think these places where some people live full time and some people are tourists are always a little weird and awkward, but overall this was a good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was over all okay. room was clean but if you have children getting down the elevator can become problematic. We had one stroller and took 25 minutes to get down. As there are only 4 elevators and 43 floors. Other than that room had great amenities and was really close to everything 5 minute walk to Waikiki beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Basic 2-star hotel. Good location, with dated rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"waikiki on the sea side avenue at Colony Hotel"
For sure it was a huge surprise for me when i had arrived at this great hotel, with a good localization, clean rooms, confortable beds, and a excelent view from the lane. My surprise was because its price was very cheep for so much qualitys. I just hope so it would not get less cheep for my words. I will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"price should have been cheaper"
They shut down two of the four elevators just to vacuum and wash the carpet, one of the most busisest time of the day when people are going out to dinner. It took me 20min just to get downstairs. Hotel is old, the price should have been cheaper. The jacuzzi water was dirty. A.C. water drained onto the patio rug.Genuine Expedia guest review
It safe and comfortable. A close walk to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
I don´t like the hotel. The neighbord is not safety and didn´t have facitities for the toristGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLOSE TO EVERY THING"
The hotel was great, the cleaning was not up to par though, bathroom faucets could be cleaned a little better,on the faucet there was soap scum and it was not shiny, a bulb burned out in the bathroom and under the vent above the stove. YES I WOULD STAY THER AGAIN, POLITE, WARM AND HELPFULGenuine Expedia guest review
""House rules" that nobody had informed us about"
The location is basically OK (some 4 blocks from the beach). Rooms, nothing luxurious but quite all right. One thing, however, pretty much spoiled the whole experience. At 10 PM, someone called us in the room. Then, someone knocked on the door. We were all but asleep (mind the time difference with continental US) and did not wish to answer. A piece […] of paper was slipped under our door... and soon, there was yet another phone call. What was the whole hype about? We had violated a "house rule" by hanging a towel to dry on the balcony. It is a "security concern", as the caller explained. The problem is not even so much that this is sheer nonsense. (OK, these day any nonsense can fly as long as it's called a "security concern"...) We might live with stupid rules, but on the condition that they be explained to us *in advance*. It was mentioned on a sheet of paper in the room that clothing lines were prohibited. It was never ever mentioned that hanging towels on balconies without ropes was prohibited. So, we had violated a -- to put it diplomatically -- "non-obvious" rule that we could have no idea of. That's NOT how you treat your paying customers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
enjoyed our stay and 70 anniversary of PH!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was just grimy. Nothing had been updated since it was built. My son spilled something on the carpet and when I went to clean it up, my rag was just black with grime from the carpets. I felt like I had to wash everything we brought with us when we got home. The upside to this hotel is the location and the size of the room. We had a 1 bedroom […] and it was very roomy. The unit only had 1 box air conditioner located in the bedroom that sounded like a jet plane taking off. We had to leave the bedroom door open 24/7 in order for the rest of the room to be a decent temp. Our room was right next to the trash chute which smelled and was loud, so if you stay here request a room away from the trash chute. The beds were slightly softer than the ground and our backs hurt every morning, even our 3 year old complained about his back hurting from the bed! Overall, not a great experience.

"Colony Hotel great location"
Hotel a bit rundown. Location is great. Perfect for 2 nite pre-cruise stay. Hot tub and pool open. Plentiful self-laundry facilities. Beach towels available 3rd floor. Would stay there again for the reasonable room fees especially during peak season.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff handled my problem with ease"
The staff did something wonderful for me -- when I showed up, I discovered I had made the reservation for the wrong night. Expedia would have enforced a 100% penalty for cancelation, but the staff simply moved my reservation. Yea Island Colony, boo Expedia. The room was basic, but lack of in-room Internet was made up for by a small kitchenette.Genuine Expedia guest review
The ad said free WIFI, however it forgot to say only hotel lobby. So two or three times a day, I would have to take the old dilapidated elevators, in which you had to wait for ever to the lobby to work on my computer. The ad said complimentary coffee. That was only the first night. So after spending $220 for two nights in a run down hotel I had to […] pay a $1 for coffee on my second morning. The room was old, with curtains that had holes in it. You could not open the bathroom door all the way as it hit the toilet. The bathroom door had a patched up hole where someone put their fist through it. I have used Hotels.com five times in the last year, however this will be the last time, as I find the room descriptions very misleading and the rooms very over priced.

"A DIVE!!!! NO BLINDS, NO PRIVACY, NO SLEEP, HOTEL IS FALLING APART"
ROOM IN DISREPAIR AND YOU TELL THEM AND THEY DON'T CARE! ROOM WITH NO BLINDS, SO NO PRIVACY, NO SLEEP CAUSE SUN COMES IN AND WHEN YOU REPORT IT THEY IGNORE IT FOR 3 DAYS THEY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOMETHING BUT IGNORED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONEGenuine Expedia guest review
"Had an alright experience"
We stayed 4 nights here, and for the most part, it was an OK experience. The carpets looked a little dirty, but I wasn't afraid to walk around bare foot. The bathroom was extremely small (the door didn't open all the way... it hit the toilet), but I wasn't there to spend all day in the bathroom :) It says the hotel is 3 or 4 blocks from the beach, and […] it's more like 8.

"Island Colony Honolulu - A work in progress"
Credit where it is due, the Island Colony is actively working on upgrading what has become a dated, shabby hotel. The staff is great, the room was clean, but the carpeting, furniture, etc. was pretty ratty. I'd like to go back when some remodeling is done. They are currently completely redoing the pool area and it is looking good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The hotel was not bad but I will stay at another hotel next visit"
The hotel was not bad, it could use some updates in the rooms, housekeeping was ok.. The people behind the desk are very helpful and friendly and the security guards are very friendly as well. We did have a great view of the Ala Wai Canal, mountains and partial view of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. The first pack of coffee is free but after that it […] costs per pack of coffee. The location of the hotel is good, very close to Waikiki and Waikiki Beach, very convenient to Ala Moanua Blvd and out of Waikiki. The parking garage for the hotel is ran by another entity and not the hotel itself, it was very costly to park our rental car. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was just ok, staff and manager ( very helpful) Our room was located by the garbage shoot, the smell was horrible. Every time someone drop garbage, you could hear it. Our room was on the 7th floor. Which was the first floor of rooms. The staff made the stay pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
