"Inexpensive is not better"
The motel is so very old. I had torn furniture. Uneven bed. Towels smelled as if they used recycled water and did it fully rinse out the soap and other smells. Carpet was vacuumed but carpet itself was very old and discolored. Blinds were broken and did not fully close. They had no string guides at the bottom. I'm glad this motel is going to be out […] of commission in February when it is slated for major refurbishing. Also, situated in a very loud corner. The music from nearby establishment kept me up.

Everything in that room was filthy. Upholstery, walls, shower...I don't know how long ago this hotel started but it looked like everything was at least 20years old and had never been cleaned or updated. Cleaning service never replaced our soap or tissue when we ran out. I know this is a cheap hotel, but this was ridiculous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A roomy hotel right on Kalakaua in Waikiki!"
The hotel was a blast from the past but kept very clean and run by very good personel. There were plenty of chairs and tables. It included microwave, stove,refridgerator and the dishes you need. (The maids washed the dishes every day). A close walk to lots of activities and the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
You could not pay us to stay at this hotel. The reviewer that asked if it was a Hostel was right on. The overwhelming smell of cleaning products was present once I stepped into the room. The hotel is a tear down, inside and out. Parking is 2 blocks away and that wasn't disclosed to us before we reserved the room. We left without staying, no way were […] we laying on those beds or walking on that carpet. The shower was creepy. Check my other reviews and you can see I am very fair and mostly positive, but this place was scary. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"In the middle of everything, great location."
Great time being close to Waikki beach, the stores and the restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"HORRIBLE, better to pay more for comfort"
We had switched to this room thinking that it was an improvement from the Castle Pacific Marina, only to find out that even though we wanted a Queen side bed, ALL the rooms only have 2 twin beds ,no queen size beds. Unless you are two single guys, or girls, this is not a romantic way to speak a week in Hawaii. We felt lied too that they did not give […] us the Queen that we requested, we would NOT have booked this room otherwise. The Beds were a HARD as rock, the shower (no bath) was disgusting. Everything was old and worn out. The other problem was it was difficult to load, unload luggage as there was no front that you can drop off. Moreover, you had to pay for parking ($20 a day) in a garage that was across the street. We paid $89 a night, plus $20 each day for parking, not worth the $109, would have paid the extra 50 a night for comfort and ease of access. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our needs were all in walking distance."
Although there was a major problem with the toilet overflowing; the attendance of maintenance and housekeeping was immediate. Appreciated it so much! The front desk clerks were friendly and very helpful! Wish the hotel offered free Wi-Fi though and pay TV/cable would have been a sweet accommodation. MAHALO!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A REAL HOLE IN THE WALL"
I could't find the hotel. Had to park then walk the street until I saw the entrance- just a doorway in between all the shops. Everything was genuine antique-about 40-50 years old (except the TV and microwave). The drain in the bathroom was super slow. No parking. BUT where else can you find a hotel room in the middle of Waikiki one block from the ocean […] for under $100/night? Low budget guests will like the kitchenette W/ fridge, micro, stove, and sink. Others will love the many restaurants within ten minutes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, but.."
My primary disappointment with this hotel is the fact that I had to pay an additional $20 a night to park my car. Over 4 nights, this was certainly not an expense I had anticipated. Also, in order to check-in, I was told to 'park in the alley' where there is naught but no parking zones, so I risked getting towed at check-in and check-out. The only […] other complaint I have is that I am over 6 feet tall and the shower heads in this place are inconveniently placed at 5 feet! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overall fun time at Polynesian Plaza."
Not bad for the price. Close to the beach and you are living right above the Waikiki night life which is why I’m glade I’m used to sleeping with ear plugs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"That's what you get"
I stayed a few days in this hotel for a conference. I would not recommend this hotel for a family vacation especially if you have young children. If you are by yourself (as I did) and want to stay in a cheap hotel, which has not been properly maintain in years, unhelpful (incompetent?) staff, but relatively close to Waikiki beach and the shoopping centers, […] you'll survive this place.

"It was worth the prize...."
I can't complain I know that it was worth the prize I paid for. Most important is that staff are friendly and it was s close to all the places I wanted to see.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel. I stayed on the busy street side so didn't get much sleep. Located close to just about everything. Very nice staff. Enjoyed my stay. Will stay if needed again. Budget friendly too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Below par service, old property--needs upgrade"
I was upset to find that I booked a single room with a King sized bed and they gave me one with two twin beds. This was something I was looking forward to but I was very disappointed. Parking was incredibly expensive and very inconvenient. The drain in the shower did not clear fast enough, by the time you were done, the water in the stall was ankle […] deep. Overall, the hotel was old and desperately needed upgrades. I would not recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It is a little old, but I've been in a worse hotel then this. I think it was alright. It was good for the price I paid. Not a long walk to the beach at all. I might even stay there again sometime.Genuine Expedia guest review
Old, dirty, not kept up, plugs didn't work, ac leaked,Genuine Expedia guest review
5 minute walk to the beach, really close to restaurants and stores (cheesecake factory, pf changs, international market, footlocker, forever 21 etc). The hotel was old with old furniture, the shower was small, and the bed was two twin beds put together.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the Price"
Friendly hotel staff. Great location. Really noisey at night but I was able to sleep through it. Did not see any bugs in the room thank god. However there was a dead huge cockroach outside my parents room. Only used the room to sleep and get dressed. Was not in the room very much.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very old hotel the shower drain did not work . Two twin beds. Not a king like I requested .Genuine Expedia guest review
WILL NEVER CONSIDER STAYING AT THIS LOCATION AGAIN.IT IS AN EMBARASSMENT TO HOTELS .COM.SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE LISTING.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We will stay at the Poly Plaza again"
This is our second stay at the Poly Plaza. Its location close to Derussy Beach is why we came back the second time. The room was clean the best it could be with the older furniture it has and there was basic extras in the room i.e. hair dryer, iron, small fridge, coffee pot, n tv. We did have to wait 2 1/2 hours after check in time to get our room, […] because the Internet went down, but we just hung out at the pool until we got our key. Overall for one of the cheapest priced hotels in Waikiki, its an okay hotel to check into. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Favorite Honolulu Hotel"
I was very impressed with the hotel. It was one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed. The only downfall's I found was that there was no phone in the room and parking was almost 2 blocks away but still cost top dollar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spacious and comfortable"
I enjoyed my stay at the Polynesian Plaza, overall. I was very impressed with how clean the hotel was! The room was much more comfortable than the majority of others I have stayed. The small kitchen area was equipped with everything we needed to be able to dine in and save some money. The room was affordable as well. I would definitely recommend this […] hotel to anyone coming to Hawaii to visit. I must say that there were a couple of issues I found that keep me from giving the place a 5star review, although I still found that the good far outweighs the bad. The parking was nearly 2 blocks away which proved to be a major inconvenience when it came to loading/unloading our luggage. There aren't any carts or valet service to help with that either. I was also surprised to not find a telephone anywhere in the room.otherwise, I already am planning to stay here again when time and money permit! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Good location. The kitchen gave advantage save big money. Beach is nearly. Personal is very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review

"cheap short stay"
triple locks on door to balcony,previous jimmy marks on door.entrance door had jimmy marks on it also. felt unsafe in the middle of Waikiki.no counter space in bathroom.If I had to do it over,i would spend the extra money and stay anywhere else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Prime location.. Cheap rates.. Older hotel"
I loved the location but the hotel is a bit older.. They need new appliances and a major renovation period.. Won't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Needed a place exactly in Honolulu, inexpensive and this place was fine. A place to sleep and store your stuff. Nothing fancy, pool was ok, but I would stay there again. Don't expect the crown plaza but it was fine. Best to not have a car, (like any hotel in Honolulu-too expensive and a bit of a hassle to park). Internet was a pay site but an apple […] store right up the street. 1or 2 nites you can't beat it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
You get what you pay for in Waikiki, and the Polynesian Plaza was pretty gross. Bad smell in the lobby, very noisy rooms on the streetside, strange hair on the bathroom floor. The location was central on the Kalakalua Strip, and if you are into thraveling 5000 miles so you can shop at Coach and eat at the Cheesecake facotory, this could be important […] to you. I left early, and the extra 40 dollars a night to sleep at a real hotel was worth every penny. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good deal and great staff"
great location and a good price for Waikiki and a good priceGenuine Expedia guest review
It's cheap and provides everything. Stove tops, pots/pans, cups, and utensils. It is located in the beginning of Waikiki Strip. Close to 7 Eleven, ABC Stores, and restraunts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Safe and clean hotel for woman travelling alone"
Fairly inexpensive. Next time I may try Breakers down the road. Traffic on Kualahaua was pretty constant. Staff helpful and pleasant. Room clean. No place outside the front door for visitors to stop and collect me. Walked down and waited outside Hard Rock Cafe which worked out OK. Central location and proximity to De Russy Park and the beach were very […] good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not An Hawaiian Paradise...."
HORRIBLE!!!!!!!! No drive way/parking. No bell carts, no bell personnel. The parking is $20/day 3-5 blocks away. Check in is at the pool. Upon entering there is an odor. Patches on the wall. Elevator is very outdated & has damage on the interior. Such as chipped paint & damage to the interior walls. I was told my room would have a double bed & a sofa […] sleeper instead two twin beds were pushed together with no headboard & no bedskirt. The sofa bed turned out to be a rollaway bed. The entire room smelled of lemon zest &I could not breath the smell was so strong. I had to open the balcony door as the smell seemed to be comingfrom the air conditioner. The shades did not open properly. The kitchenette was totally outdated & the wood was painted white & damaged. The stove top burners were lined in foil. The bathroom sink had visable damage. The bathroom as so small that the door would hit you if you sat on the toilet & someone opened the door. Hotel.com staff not helpful with concerns. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It's difficult to see from the street for one. No parking and they offered no suggestions for where to park. There was a sign to pardon the construction to better serve us!?!? Never saw anyone working on the hotel. It was just a crummy hotel. Just a place to lay your head in Waikiki, except the king-size bed was two single beds put together with the […] Pali ridge in the middle. Didn't like the hotel at all!!!!!

"Motel at Best - dirty and poor maintenance"
Upon arrival, I had to check in at the office next to the pool and the pool area surrounded by rundown apartments overlooking. Upon a late arrival, I got to the room and discovered the dirty bedding from the previous customer wadded up on the table by the dresser. When I requested the room to be cleaned, I was told they had no help at this hour, they […] would provide me with linens and I could change the bed myself. I told them that was unacceptable. The desk clerk called his manager and handed me "his personal cell phone" to talk with the manager. I told the manager it was her responsibility to take care of this and she told me that was not an option tonight. Finally, the desk clerk, did bring new linens and change the bed for me. There were no curtains; instead there were vertical blinds which were missing multiple slats, thus, no privacy at night. There are no phones in the room so bring your own alarm clock!!!

"You get what you pay for."
Very central to Waikiki. Safe. Otherwise, tired and run down.Genuine Expedia guest review
"excellent location but not maintained"
Location is great and is situated across from Luxury Row and a short walk to the beach and shopping. The rooms are run down and not maintained, but I was told it is being renovated. It will be closed for renovation for a year starting June. There is constant work being done starting before 8 a.m. Water supply is switched off every now and then for an […] hour at noon which may caused some inconvenience. But the price is right.

"Great location, close to beach and shopping."
Have a really good time. Staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and we saved money with the kitchenette. Bathroom was very nasty, everything was old and rundown, I would not stay here again. The staff were friendly and helpful. Air conditioner was rusty and noisy but did work. Plastic patio table and chairs in the room and old wicker night tables. Burnt out light bulbs and one lamp did not work. We […] arrived at 9pm and the first thing I did was wash the dishes and floor while my husband scrubbed the shower. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel is a bit old however the staff are very friendly and we had no issues throughout the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Yes, close to all essentials. Easy walk to beach."
Was disappointed that key deposit was charged to my MasterCard and not withdrawn as I had been advised on my departure. I had left my room neat and tidy. Of course the bed had been slept in and towel used. But I took out my rubbish! What happened to deserve the charge?Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was large and had a reasonable airconditioner. For the price I thought it was okay and the location is excellent - fair value but not cheap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, clean but run down"
The first impression is how run down the hotel is. They still use keys for the rooms. The carpet is old and ripped. The hotel is located on a main street across from luxury row. It is noisy even though our room is suppose to be one of the quietest one. There is a kitchen but no paper towels or dish soap is provided. When I ask the person at the front […] desk he told us to buy our own. Otherwise the kitchen is fully equipped. Overall there is no complain. You get what you pay for. The price is cheap and the room is clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth 150$ a night at all."
Really expensive and really basic and boring. AND internet is not even free.Genuine Expedia guest review
As for the location, it was perfect , very convenient. However the hotel has to upgraded. It does not fit the location as far as the maintenance is concerned. The staff were absolutely pleasant though and very very helpful and I guess they did the best they could with what they had. I would go again if the conditions improve.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
