"Our second stay"
It was the second time we stayed at the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. (I would not have choosen the carpet as it appears old but I believe was relatively new.) I couldn't find a thing wrong with our stay, so it gets high marks. The Waikiki location is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location. Friendly staff. Functional. Good price. Why not?Genuine Expedia guest review
"grat hotel for any family indivual or just anybody"

"Good choice on a budget"
We chose this hotel for the location, which was close to the beach. The hotel was lacking some basic amenities such as hot tub, and the pool was basically a kiddy pool. If you are looking for a cheaper hotel this is a good choice. If however, you are looking for a memorable experience, you should probably consider other options.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tired and dated"
This hotel is in a great location but its like stepping back into the 1990's - tired and dated - although it has reasonable rates it in desperate need of some TLC - airconditioning was erratic - furniture tired - only provided with two very sad thin towels every day - the internet is expensive and wired in the rooms and although they say there is free […] wireless in the lobby neither me or my parnter could connect - I would only stay here again as a last resort - search around there are better reasonably priced hotels in similar locations.

"Do not plan on checking in early."
The Hotel caters to Asian Tourist and the Airline employee's. Do not plan on getting your room early or sometimes ever on time. They take care of the Airline people and their employee's first. Good location 1 Blk . to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Place for a Vacation Adventure"
We were really happy with the hotel stay and our overall trip in Hawai'i-- I mean you need to get some rest in order to have a fulfilling vacation, right? :) Best: - It is one block from the beach, literally. It's near the statue of Duke. AWESOME LOCATION! It's also near a couple rental car locations (Hyatt Hotel). - Being by a 24 Hr McDonald's was […] actually really great to grab a quick bite before heading to the beach, but also when we had to wake up at 4am to be picked up for a tour. - I personally loved having 6 pillows available for the bed without asking! - Being able to print boarding passes for free - Loved the open lobby. There is a no door or window entrance! Improvements: - Parking was a little bit confusing. We rented a car in the middle of our stay and we had to pay for however many nights immediately as well as validate the ticket so we can go in and out of the parking garage. It didn't seem as easy as it could've been. - We wanted to let the Hawaiian Breeze flow into the room, but the sliding glass door was squeaky and very hard to open and close. - Since it can get really windy in Waikiki, it would've been nice to have a drying cord run across the bathtub/shower to dry at least two beach towels and bathing suits. I've seen these in a couple of hotel bathrooms. I was too afraid that my towels would blow off the balcony! Just one of those luxury things I guess. I'd recommend this hotel to anybody.

"If you are looking for an affordable accomodations"
The facility is old. The room's okay but nothing fancy or romantic. Had a blackout at around 11pm and the lobby was packed with disgruntled tourists and flight attendants (Korean Air's designated hotel). General interior wasn't so impressive but at least the price was kind of affordable so, highly recommended for those who are looking for cheaper accomodations […] that is close to the Waikiki Beach (one minute walk).

"room needs a makeover"
Nice lobby area leaves a great first impression. The rooms need a makeover. Matresses worn out. Pillows flat. Couch appears cheap and worn. Rooms not modern feeling. We had two rooms. We stayed at the hilton one block away the previous week. Much nicer rooms. Breakfast buffet was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice beach hotel"
Nice looking hotel. 3 elevators were plenty for all guests. Staff was courteous. Room with city view was fine (part of ocean and part of mountain viewable). One block off beach was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An average hotel"
The bedroom was ok and the staff was friendly but I was expecting more from a 4starts hotel. I think the bathroom was very small.Genuine Expedia guest review
the room was hot it was 73 degrees since i stay for 7 days. and the parking garage was too small not enough space, but the employees was good especially the housekeepers and front desk personsGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is just a block away from the shores of Waikiki and about 10 minutes walk to the International Market. Macy's is also within walking distance in case you forgot something you should have packed. The Hop on Hop Off bus should get you to all places you want to see from here. And you dont have to worry about paying a huge bill for dinner. There […] are fastfood chains all over this area. Maintenance is average but I was very satisfied with its location.

I am very very disappointed with my stay in Waikiki Resort Hotel with my family. Car parking cast is more than my rental car charge for 5 days, Room Service is not good. Customer service is not good. overall I did not feel the hotel services and hotel like Resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Waikiki Resort Hotel and Expedia- a great combo!"
Our experience at the Waikiki Resort Hotel was wonderful from top to bottom. Hotel management, staff, service, cleaning, and security were superb. June at the front desk and Nurly providing room cleaning were exceptional. We have travelled throughout the world and this was definitely one of our best experiences. Expedia staff also made the difference […] as Gregg provided us with the best advise and reservations for fantastic tourist events. When we travel in the future, it will be through Expedia!

We were very happy with the hotel the room and the services,very close to the beach,restaurants and stores. I will recomended to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Hotel with an Excellent Location"
The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's conveniently located in the walking distance to beach, zoo, Food Pantry grocery store, International Market Place and all the other wondeful stores and places. The staff are helpful and friendly. After a long 5 hour flight and another hour of getting a rental car and driving from airport to the hotel, […] we were eager to have a place to settle in. We got to the hotel at 2pm which is one hour ahead of the check in time. But Branden nicely let us check in at 2pm and instructed us how to park our car and have the parking ticket programed for the 6 night stay. Overall it's a very nice hotel, except the beds are kind of soft. If we are to go back to Waikiki beach, we definitely would like to stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Came back a 2nd time"
We stayed in this hotel 2 years ago. We really liked the location and the staff were all so friendly. So, we decided to stay here again. We just can't say enough good things. It is definitely not like the other 5-star hotels down the street. But, for our budget, we were just really happy with our stay overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and close to the beach"
Very nice . I block from the beach. Nice people. Rooms were nice. Internet can be a hassle. Free in the lobby but the one in my room went out for 2 days. Having to wait 5 hrs. for my room as I arrrived about 7:30 in the morning. The front desk staff really seem to care that I had to wait. Said there was no rooms ready. After 34 hours I finally asked […] a Front Desk Supervisor and she got me in to a room right away. it is the old saying" Don't ask for things from people that can only say NO. Go to someone that can make a decision and say YES " Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Bed too soft, outdated decor, good location"
Bathroom really small, but great location. No luxury at all, and they could surely use a renewal, especially on carpet and bed, which is way too soft.Genuine Expedia guest review
it was a good eperience. the view was great and i enjoyed the polite staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location. Room was clean but seemed old. Doesn't matter since I didn't spend much time in the room. Hotel is only a short 2 blockes from the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel needs updating very badly!"
This hotel is badly in need of updating. The carpets are all worn-out, furnitures are old as well as fixtures. The bathroom is extremely tiny with barely a room to move around. Our room phone, fridge and table lamp wasn't working. The insulation of the rooms are poorly done as I can hear conversations right next door! I give credit to the staff of this […] hotel. The housekeeper for our room is very nice and approachable. She does a good job in cleaning our room. Please skip their breakfast Buffett as it was really horrendous. Most of the guest are Koreans as there is a Korean airline office inside of the hotel and their flight crew uses this place as well. We did not try their sushi and Korean restaurant. Probably a 10 minute walk to Waikiki beach and 15 minute walk to international marketplace. Were planning on returining to Oahu this december and we will not be staying in this hotel.

The hotel is centerally located and easy access to beach and shopping places. The rooms are very small compared to other good hotels. The rooms are good for two people. It is quite cramped for a family of four. It is a budget hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't go with this hotel"
My friends and I stayed in this Waikiki Resort Hotel when we were traveling to Hawaii this March. And it was really a bad idea to stay in that hotel and I would not recommend it to anyone. 1.Location: the location is not bad, only 3~4 min walk to the beach, but this doesn't make it outstanding among other hotels, I mean most of the hotels are located […] along the beach, and they all within the walking distance to the beach 2. Room: it's a Korean Hotel, and the rooms are pretty old. You can see the trail of history from beds, TV and bathroom.I really think they need renovation. There's no wi-fi in the rooms, you only get free wi-fi in the lobby downstairs. So you think you can surf the internet in bed when you have a long day trip, then you are wrong. You have to get to downstairs and sit in those benches to get internet, and trust me, there are more people than the benches 3. Restaurant in the hotel: trust me, you don't wanna dinning in this restaurant! The only restaurant here in this hotel is call Seoul Jung, and it mainly serves Korean BBQ. The taste cannot compare with other Korean or Japanese restaurants.I also tried other traditional Korean food there, the taste is awful!!! I've been to some Korean restaurants in NYC, and the food in Seoul Jung, you can't call it Korean food or food! 4. Cleanliness: I wouldn't say the room is clean, because there was a roach in my room and it run really fast 5. Staff: Maybe they were tired, or they were just not friendly.

This hotel was alright. The beds were not comfortable and the bed linens had an annoying odor to them. I did see two baby roaches. If you have a problem with insects I wouldn't recommend this hotel. On the other hand they a small restaurant (Ilima) that served breakfast and lunch only. Although I only had breakfast there, it was good and affordable. […] They had a breakfast buffet till 9am and after that you had to order from the menu. The hotel did provide an Expedia expert which was helpful in booking activities and answering any questions you may have about island. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyable honeymoon vacation!"
The hotel was nice for the price. It had everything we looked for in a hotel. It was near the bus, all the places of interest in Waikiki, and it was well-kept. The only disadvantages were the lack of Wifi in the hotel room and the small bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice enough for a mid range place"
Pros: Great location, adequate if not looking for anything fancy, nice vibe/feeling while staying there, place is pretty clean. Cons: Older hotel so most of it shows wear (carpets, beds etc.), lobby bathrooms not great, air conditioners are a little noisy, though none of that is too bad, rooms are small and not the best views unless you get a suite, […] sort of indifferent staff, though helpful if engaged, $20 a night extra for parking, which is basically mandatory if you have a car. All in all I wouldn't mind staying there again since I'm a pretty no-frills type traveler. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly and convenient"
The hotel was great and the staff was helpful and friendly. The location is also very conveniently located especially for the beach, shopping, and food. I stayed on the 5th floor so there was a little street noise but I'm sure they would have changed rooms if I wanted. They was a small fridge but no microwave. The beds were extremely comfortable. There […] is a coin operated laundry in the basement parking area. I would advise using it during the day only because that area is accessible by the public. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room at Waikiki Hotel Resort was much bigger than expected . . . especially after staying at Ohana West where our room was size of a postage stamp. Hotel is close to beach. Generally pleased with our stay . . . would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location in Waikiki"
Great location in Waikiki -close to dining and within walking distance sites of interest and aonly a block from the beach. We were a bit disappointed with the In room coffee makers which are the one cup type and there is no way to adjust the strength of the coffee as they use pods that are on the mild side, and the pod holder was too small to hold 2 […] pods. Staff is attentive and friendly. We have stayed there a few times in the past and would stay there again, but next time I will pack my own coffee maker. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK hotel, terrible parking."
Overall for the price the hotel was just fine for my wife and I. The room was utilitarian and functional, not a whole lot more. The place was clean and well-kept, however, their parking situation is atrocious. They make one pay twenty dollars a day for unlimited in and out privileges and overnight parking. Unfortunately they will sell you this parking […] with no readily available spots. Their underground structure maybe has twenty spots and half of them are used as storage spots for mattresses and other miscellaneous gear for the hotel. They do have another lot thankfully, however, that lot is rented to the public at 7 dollars a day, no over night. This makes it so if you go out and leave your spot, when you come back it is not very likely to be there. As this lot can take only about thirty to forty cars it is not especially big and has several reserved stalls that one is not allowed to park in which is why I was only able to park there once in four days. The hotel after my complaining about this allowed me to park in the employee lot, this was not a great solution though. Every time I wanted to enter the lot I had to get out of my car and go to the front desk, at the front desk they would call security. I then had to get back in the car and drive around to the back of the hotel and wait while security walked from wherever they happened to be to the back lot. This could take as much as another fifteen or twenty minutes to get a stall, it sucked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would stay again"
Friendly and helpful staff from the front desk associates to housekeeping. Short walk to the beach was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very happy with our stay."
I did lots of research on Expedia before picking a hotel for our first trip to Hawaii. This hotel seemed to have the best balance of value, location, and positive reviews of any in our price range. Our stay was even better than we expected. We were there for our first anniversary and I had contacted the hotel GM prior to arrival. He was nice enough […] to upgrade us to an available room with an amazing view and even had a bottle of wine on ice for us at the time of our arrival. Thank you Mr. Vergara! We loved the balcony and used it every day to sit and relax and enjoy the warm evenings. The beds and pillows were probably the most comfortable of any hotel that my wife and I can remember. We really did sleep well. The location is great. There is so much to do in such a close proximity even if the beach (which is 1 block away) isn't tops on your list. We would definitely go back in a minute. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Location - Great Price for 2 Night Stay"
My wife and I spent two nights here in Jan. 2012 and it was very clean and comfortable. The location is great, just a block from the beach and the main shopping strip. Nice jogging trail along the beach. My only complaint is we reserved a king bed, upon arrival they only had two queens. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and we recieved free […] breakfast for our entire stay. On the North Shore now enjoying the rest of our time in HI. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Experience at the Waikiki Resort"
Our stay at the Waikiki Resort was great; the staff was helpful and courteous. The hotel is centrally located a block of Kuhio Beach and very close to the aquarium and zoo. My young daughters loved the pool and the pool’s hours of operations were accommodating to beachgoers whose children demand an after dinner swim after a day at the beach. Special […] recognition from our group to Dennis the head bell man and the front desk staff who worked diligently to provide the room when we arrived early. Also, after the kiddies go to bed the hotel restaurant Midori is open late provides a REAL drink at a great price and the staff is wonderful. I will be back to this hotel on my next island hop to Oahu. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rooms need major renovation"
Our family traveled to the US mainland & Hawaii from Dec 16 to Jan 2 staying at various hotels is CA, NV, Tahoe, Honolulu. We all agreed that Waikiki Resort Hotel is our least favorite hotel & we also paid a lot for a night stay. All our hotel stays in US came with a nice breakfast EXCEPT FOR WAIKIKI RESORT. The rooms need a major renovation. I woke […] up in the middle of the night because the stench (mold, old furniture, old beddings) just bothered my senses. The only positive thing about Waikiki Resort is the location, a block from Waikiki Beach (but the hotel offers NO / ZERO view because there is one building in front of it that blocks the hotel & has the view of the ocean).

"Pay for TV and Phone"
My stay was pretty good but have to pay for TV and Phone which was a little odd. Other than that if you need a place to sleep and stay this would be good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is okay for the price I paid. It is in a really good location, just a few steps away from Waikiki. The Front Desk personnel rarely smile but are efficient. We managed to get a room that has a partial view of the ocean and the diamond head although at the price of a standard room. The room is clean and there is a coin laundry at the basement […] which is a major plus. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Waikiki Resort Hotel - Good Value but Noisy"
Staff is very nice and helpful, rooms are clean, the hotel is well maintained, and the location is excellent. Most guests are Koreans, which is just an observation, not an issue. However, air condition in the room is very noisy, and it does not help to open the balcony door because the street is noisier still (even on 11th floor). Also, I would have […] liked to have better pillows (they are pieces of sponge). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only minor complaint I had was that they locked the laundry room at 10 PM, but I understand the need for this policy to minimize disturbing the guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad at all. Stayed 8 days"
Paying for parking when you are already paying for a room seems like a bit much to me. The room had a fridge, flat screen tv, safe, balcony, and a comfortable bed. You couldn't host a party in your room, but you are in Hawaii, you should be out enjoying the town. The grounds were well kept and everyone either kept to themselves or were nice. I am very […] pleased and would go back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I had a nice 4 nighs stay at Waikiki Resort hotel during early Nov 2011. The room is clean but the bed is very soft. I had the view of the swimming pool and other hotels. I really liked the location since it was next door to hyatt regency and pacific beach hotel. I didn't have much expectations so it helped. I mostly used public transportation which […] was great and I only rented a car for one day at the hyatt cheaper than pacific beach hotel which helped save on parking lot fees. I highly recommend Duke Canoe for breakfast buffet 14.95 includes omelett station, fruit, eggs, bacon, unlimited juice, coffee, soda. Avoid Pacific beach ocean buffet for breakfast beacause it sucks and cost more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
