"comfortable place to stay"
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The room were we stayed at was clean. I didn't see anything wrong in the room, my only complain is the shower space, it's a little bit small. Generally the hotel is clean and decent and has a convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room good size"
Room nice size but half of outlets are not working and carpets in room and especially hallway stink of mold and ? . Location is nice along with staff and restaurants but needs renovation. Description said being renovated but I did not see any going on.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for a place to sleep"
It was not clear when we booked the stay that we would be in the Ilikai Hotel but that the Waikiki Marina Resort is separate and seeks time share owners. They tried to talk us into acquiring certificates that could be used as money during our stay if we listened to a sales pitch. Ugh. The toaster did not work. The "free internet connection" was the […] worst of any hotel anywhere in the world either my wife and I have stayed (together or separately). We had to call a special number to talk to the front desk that had limited hours and located on the 2nd floor of the Ilikai. At checkin we were told that the room would be cleaned only on Wednesday (and when we checked out, of course) and towels supplied any any time. We were unable to charge to our room at any of the hotel venues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hawaiian Vacation with Joan Hunter Ministries"
Our stay at the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai,was extraordinary to say the least. The wait staff and valet services were extremely friendly and took care of all of our needs immediately making our stay so much more pleasureable. We plan to visit Oahu again very soon and will be certain to book our futures stays at the Ilikai. Thank-you to all […] who made our trip so much more enjoyable. Aloha !!!

"Beautiful and cozy hotel."
The location was very accessible to point of area you want to go. It should have there own parking areas for there guest. I need to park1 block away from the hotel which is not conducive when you are too tired after the whole days activities. This the only negative to say about parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for a family or extended stay"
We loved staying at the Ilikai. It was wonderful to have a full kitchen so we did not have to eat out every meal. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, glassware and silverware but you will have to buy all food and spices etc to cook. The hotel is located at the start of Waikiki so you are not in the heart of the action but you are close to the beach […] and there is a pool so for our family we had all we needed. There is a huge mall about 15 - 20 minute walk from the hotel and a grocery store called Don Quixote which is less expensive than the ABC store across the street. Our room was on the street side so no wonderful view but it was pretty quiet and not a lot of street noise. Everyone in Hawaii is friendly and the staff at the hotel were no exception. We had a light out in the bathroom which was fixed as soon as it was brought to the attention of the front desk. We did not spend much time in our room because there was so much to do but when we were there we were very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"2013 trip to Hawaii"
The hotel was conveniently located nearby the beach, mall & restaurants. All in walking distance. The room was awesome but they could afford to get better quality sheets.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach and food places."
It was nice, however the parking rates were not explained and were extremely high.Genuine Expedia guest review
"facing the main street"
We had a wonderful stay at the hotel .the rep Kendra was very professional, caring, understanding , and gave us good direction from the airport to Honolulu . She gave us excellent service .our room was clean and nice looking . There were lots of shopping centers, lots of restaurants and lots of happy hours . We were very pleased .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is timeshare"
This hotel is also a timeshare. Soon after our arrival, we were contacted by the concierge desk. We were invited to come pick-up some coupons for the local shops, restaurants, etc. The "quick" pick-up ended up turning into a long while. We ended up getting roped into a 90 min presentation on the timeshare if we wanted all these special discounts on […] things such as the rental car, luau, & so forth. Anyway, we ended up wasting half a day. If you are interested in a timeshare, it is a nice one. We use to belong to one years ago. We will buy again, but not at this time. With all that said, the hotel was nice, good location, close to beach & shopping. It was overall a nice time! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Rollie was excellent!!! Reggie was excellent. Me and my family arrived earlier than check in, and our room was already cleaned and ready to receive us! The room was clean and we loved having the full kitchen. They gave us a room with a roll out bed(good quality) for my daughter, since there was only a pull out bed in addition to our king size bed..... […] Made the drama easy between the two kids.... The only draw back is that you have a 5 minute walk to the lagoon, and coming back you have to walk UP the ramp.... Besides this minor draw back, I have nothing to complain about. This is a Great location..... Easy to to which ever direction your heart desires. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Waikiki Rooms and Views"
The stay at the Waikiki Marina was well work the price. The employees were very helpful with any questions we had about tours and getting around. The pool was not very big and there was no hot tub, however, we had no use for it since were in the ocean or lagoon! We had the City view and mountain views. It was very pretty to see the rain clouds in the […] mornings come over with light rains. Very tropical! At night, the city view was nicer to look at than a dark ocean. The dinner meal at Sarentos (top of the hotel) was fantastic. The meal and service was very nice as it should for the price you are paying. For the three of us, wife and daughter, was around $200 (including desert,cocktails, tip). We managed to get arounf the area in taxis, bus, and shuttles. We rented a mid-size car for one day to go around the entire island. The Toyota Corolla only used less than 3 gallons! We took the eastern roads to get to North Shore and then south west to Waikiki. Snorkeling was one of the best things you can do in Hawaii especially if you have teenage kids or older. It was time well spent. Be aware that the shading at some areas is coveted like gold! Haunama Bay was not too crowded and we had shading but it was not quite peak season yet (1st Half of June). Overall, we had a great time. Look forward to going to Maui net year! Cheers!

"Nice Hotel Close to Beach"
First of all, when getting a taxi from the airport, just say Ilikai Hotel! It's been around for 50 years, and cabbies know the location. If you say, Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai, you will likely be dropped off at the wrong location, as we were! The Ilikai is a nice older hotel that has been updated and is very comfortable. It is located several […] blocks from the heavy bustle of downtown, but less than a block from the beach. We had a lovely room with full kitchen, which made it great, and more cost effective for meals, and snacks. Foodland is a large supermarket only 3 to 4 blocks away, and the hotel has an adequate small store for incidentals. Getting around the city is pretty easy, with all the buses, and trolleys running from nearly the front of the hotel, and booking tours, and packages for shows, etc., was made quite painless as well! The rooms are older, but it is clean and very comfortable. And, if your like us, you wont be spending much time in the room anyway! Check out the lagoon, located at the Hilton, next door. Looked like a terrific place for families with small children! And for shopping, the mall is located in the same structure as the supermarket, just blocks away. We enjoyed our time at the Ilikai, but just a tip.... If your flying in from the eastern part of the US, make sure your stay is longer than a week! There is a six hour time difference, and the flights are l o n g, and it's tough to acclamate in just a week! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, not too pricy, good for family w/ toddler."
Very nice hotel, not the nicest. We enjoyed it's convenient location right next to the lagoon and the beach. We went to other places to eat for dinner, but having the full kitchen in the room was nice. We picked up some frozen meals and other groceries at walmart down the road and made them for lunches and breakfast. Plus we could pack lunches and take […] them while out sightseeing. More affordable and convenient than going out every meal. We have a 15 month old. This hotel does not provide a crib, but pack 'n plays are free to check at the airport, as it is a baby-related item. The bathroom was big enough to set up the pack n play in so he could nap and sleep in a separate room while we enjoyed eachother's company in the main room. We left it set up the whole time. Didn't have to break it down to use the restroom, sink or shower. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for active senior citizen s."
Friendly and curteous bellman staff.Wakiki Marina staff very professional. For an older hotel, upgrades well kept and service excellent w/cleanliness. Laundry facility was very convenient (on the same floor). Very convenient located for safe morning walks, shopping at Ala Moana, good dining in walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Nice Condo/Hotel, Centrally Located :-)"
The Ilikai Hotel/Condo was perfect for us. Centrally located, it's within walking distance to all the stores and restaurants (as long as you don't mind doing a little walking) and having your own kitchen is always a plus. We bought groceries first thing and always had a nice relaxing breakfast in the morning before spending the majority of the day out […] and about. I've been to the islands before but it was my wife's first time and the Ilikai and staff did much to make it her favorite trip ever....along with the friendly island people! And Expedia and it's staff also treated us well, even resolving an issue we had with better than expected results! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect location close to everything!"
Wonderful staff. Very clean. I would reccommend this hotel to anyoneGenuine Expedia guest review
I chose this hotel as I did not want to be right in the hustle & bustle of Waikiki. The fact that the $2.00 trolley tram stopped right outside was great, easy access to everywhere. The room we had faced the main road but the sliding door was quite heavy and managed to keep out a lot of the noise. One thing that we did find annoying was the fridge was […] extremely noisy when the motor kicked in to the point of waking us up sometimes. Also a minor point was the TV is fairly old, a flat screen larger one would be nice (noticed some in other rooms so may be a cost factor of the room0 not that there was much to watch on TV anyway, mostly for late evening. House keeping the first time was great but on another occasion the bed was left unmade and no refills of soap etc, again a minor point but being a 4**** hotel you expect a bit more. After staying on Maui and finding the resort staff very helpful, friendly and personal, The Waikiki seemed less personal as there is no front desk that you continually pass having said that the staff on the desk on the second floor were really helpful and nice if you had a problem. The pool again not as nice as Maui, a bit dated but still enjoyed lazing around it. Would have been nice to be able to get poolside service for food & drinks. Being set amongst the Marina was really nice, the downstairs Bar & Grill was pleasant for meals and drinks and was also a short walk to the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Three hotels in one building. Very confusing, not knowing where to go for check-in. Do not go to the main desk, for Hotels. com. Concierge desks for at least 2 different businesses. Pass the buck here,... One sent me to the other and the other sent me to Valet for arrangements to the Airport. Not sure exactly how the bell man works for all 3. BUT..... […] other than all the confusion, with exactly who we were under..... The hotel was great, beautiful rooms. clean and the location was fantastic! On the beach, downtown shopping, Mall was close all kinds of Restaurants. The pool was lovely, however public smoking was just on the other side of the shrubs...... Don't sit next to shrubs. Valet parking was nice, but on the spendy side. There is other parking close unless you need curbside for handicap. Wonderful having a kitchen to cook in also.

"5 Night in Waikiki"
Remember that you are paying for what is advertised, which is towels and trash disposal, nothing else. If you like new and more, go somewhere else. If you are like me, and don't like the waste of time and energy of all of the hotel pampering, this is your spot. Super friendly staff and make your event plans with them too. They will let you know if there […] are other options besides what they offer. What they have is the very good though, and they are trustworthy people. I would go there again.

"will book again"
overall this was a very good experience. almost all 5's, i gave a 4 on the condition of the hotel only because it's a little dated although it has gone through some renovations we came from the Aulani Disney resort in ko 'opali which is a brand new hotel so were a little used to 5 star accommodations. none the less, ultra friendly staff, clean room, […] excellent location on the north end of waikiki, walking distance to ala moana center and whatever else you might need. paring a little steep at $28/night but probably typical of the area. would have preferred an ocean side room over the street side but for the money it was the best deal available. also the 4 star for condition was because the closet door was a little askew as well as the fridgerator being a little janky, that said it all worked fine with know problems. they dont do full turn down service but fresh towels and empty trach cans daily is good enough for us. finally upon check in, you are given two valet vouchers for arrivakl and departure so essentially they take care of the valet tips for you. thats the first I had heard of that. also, being right next door to the hilton you get the super up close view the fireworks show every friday night around 6pm. book with confidence, you wont be dissappointed.

"Nice hotel, great location."
We stayed 7 nights and enjoyed our time here. We loved having a suite with a full kitchen. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Nicely furnished room. Shower only in the room may be a drawback for some. Bed was a little more firm than we like. Hotel backs to Marina, but a short overpass walk to the beach (great kiddie beach with all the amenities also […] available next door). A great place for Couples and families alike.

"Limited Hotel Services"
The hotel and room were fine, but booking throuth the "Waikiki Marina Resort" is actually booking through a subset of rooms, at the Ilikai Hotel, that are owned by a time share. There were limited hotel services including no daily room cleaning, coffee replenishment, etc. Also, you couldn't charge any hotel dining or services to your room, so had to […] carry a credit card with you throughout the hotel. I didn't see any of that clearly spelled out when I made the reservation, so it came as a surprise upon check-in (which you couldn't do at the front desk but had to be done in an "office," with limited hours, on the second floor).

"Perfect Room, Exceptional Deal"
I stayed in a recently remodeled room at a great location. I went with a hockey team that got various rooms at various hotels in Waikiki and when they saw my room they all said it was bigger and just as nice as theirs. When I told them the price, I found I had paid about half of what everyone else had - and had a kitchen that they did not. Plus I was […] closer to Ala Moana Beach Park!

"Business Trip to Waikiki"
I have stayed in Waikiki before, this location is further away from Waikiki. But as a business traveler I prefer it. Hotel has full kitchens and all the immediate needs on site. I would return to this hotel with or without family on business. There are many choices for hotels, for the price this is a great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just right for a short stay in Waikiki"
This hotel was close in a great location, it was close to Honolulu and all the attractions in that area. The rooms were clean and updated, the outside of the building was dated, but that seemed to be a common theme of the city. It was very nice to have a kitchen in our room and it was well stocked with necessities. One thing that caught us off guard […] was the overnight parking fee, but the parking staff was very efficient and quick, so no complaints, just be aware that you will have to pay to park there. It is located right off the ocean with a little protected cove for children to play in. As evening time rolls around, the homeless start to come out in droves to the beach area, so it may not be where you want to be with your small children in the evening. Overall we had a pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had no problems with our junior lanai suite. Definitely would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good family hotel for the price"
Overall, the stay was pleasant. The hotel is in a location that worked for my family (myself and two children ages 4 and 8). It is a little away from the busiest part of the Waikiki strip. But, there are several restaurant choices withing a couple of blocks and it is walking distance to the Ala Moana shopping Center and the Ala Moana park. It is close […] to Waikiki beach and even closer to the lagoon at the Hilton next door. The freeway is easily accessed with a few turns. The room was fine. It was spacious and the full kitchen was a plus. Dish washing soap, sponges, and paper towels were provided. Plates, silver wear, utensils, and different types of cups were also available. The small balcony was also a nice bonus. The carpet was a bit worn and the bathroom fixtures were dated with a little rust at the bases. There was no tub which can be an issue for younger children. Overall, however, the room was clean. Daily housecleaning was not provided - only towel exchange and garbage pick up. It's not too terrible as we were hardly in the room anyway. The staff is incredibly friendly - but thatnis typical of Hawaii. the pool was adequate for us and it was clean. There's are a few onside restaurants. We ate at the Ilikai bar and grill one breakfast. It was okay. There was no fresh fruit available and my eggs were a bit runny. We did not go back there. In general, it was a fine place to stay with a family for a good price. It's not for everyone as it is away from the main strip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Ilikai is an impressive building with nice rooms. Because it was apparently built as a timeshare, each room has a kitchenette....which can be a convenient alternative to eating out for every meal. Although the building and grounds are excellently maintained, the hotel is older and feels a bit "tired." It could use some updating but, once again, […] it is a very nice structure with very nice rooms, and it is well-maintained. Above all, the Ilikai's greatest asset is its staff. Everyone is accommodating to the max. Have a problem? Just mention your concern to the staff and, without delay, problem solved. For the price, the Ilikai is an excellent choice.

"It was great to come back!"
My wife and I got enaged at this hotel 30 years ago and decided to return for our 30th anniversary. We were not dissapointed and glad that we returned. The hotel has been meticulously maintained and the "Top of the I" (Sarantino's Restaurant) situated on the top floor where I proposed 30 years ago is still there. Magnificent restaurant boasting 360 […] degree views of the ocean, beach and Honolulu. And, the food is excellent. This is definitely one of Honolulu's fine dining establishments and has won many awards. Excellent location with great hotel and room amenities. The view of the beach and ocean from our lanai was spectacular. The Marina Resort staff were very personable and professional. They always went out of their way to ensure that my family was comfortable. Thank you Kristen, Kendra, Sam and Kent for making our stay a memorable one.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved our weekend stay at the Marina. The room (1024) was large, bed comfortable and a full kitchen. The family loved the large balcony and view of the ocean. It took only 5 minutes to get to the beach and the friday night firework show next door was awesome. Great price for what you get. We also liked the selection of restaurants in the area.

"A smelly room, but nice staff"
My husband and I were travelling from Maui back to Honolulu to catch our flight back to the mainland so we only needed a room for one night. we were luvky to get this room as it was the only one available from more than 100 hotels. We paid WAY TOO much for this room. It smelled like someone had left rotten meat in the fridge and when we got to our room, […] the windows were wide open...obviously they smelled it too. Also the beds were very old and needed to be replaced. The room itself was nice and the staff was very friendly. They felt bad too, but there was no other room to go to. They did not offer to reduce my fee. The hotel is conveniently located to lots of things. Comparing this hotel to the other hotels I stayed in while on this vacation, I would give it only three stars and maybe even less considering the extremely high price..more than 300 dollars Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a Family Vacation"
The fridge/stove/toaster/microwave/pots and pans are great for a family on vacation, you can pick up groceries at the Foodland in the mall or go to Safeway. Pool could be better but hey you're right at the start of the beach boardwalk and the Lagoon which is great for toddlers. Lanai was the biggest I've ever experienced.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Experience, highly recommended!"
I travel often and have stayed at several hotels in Honolulu. I was very pleased with the Ilikai and will return. The location was excellent, walking distance or easy bus ride to most popular areas of the city. Ala Moana Park and mall are a couple blocks away and the Hilton Village is next door. Buses to the airport or down Waikiki are right out front. The […] room was good size and very clean, free internet, staff friendly. I find it very convenient to have the full kitchen and large lanai in the unit, I was able to have family visit with plenty of space. The views were great, even city side and the room was quiet. I would definitely recommend the Ilikai for all types of visitors. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
