"No fully equipped kitchennette"
Room is bedroom with microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator and table. At the back is a small closet, with plates, cutlery, pots etc. There is no sink (other than bathroom sink), no 2 burner stovetop, no kettle, and no kitchen surfaces in the room. We stayed at the hotel twice, and the beginning and end of our stay, and both rooms were similarly equipped. If you are just looking for a cheap room in Waikiki, it is fine, but don't except too much of a kitchen! You can walk from the hotel to the beach quite easily, and the staff are friendly, and there is also a small pool area. The rooms are quite old, and relatively clean, but do have quite a strong smell of air freshener when you walk in. As the windows are old, and the hotel is next to a busy road, it can be a bit noisy at night time.

"Friendly place"
This hotel is easy to find, not far from the beach and shopping. The hotel staff are super nice, friendly and helpful. Its on busy street so expect a little noise from the traffic below. I really like the hotel had fridge and small kitchen. Also this hotel needs serious updates (elevator, carpet-title would be better and bathroom, paint). The beds were really comfortable and pillows as well.

"Not as bad as I thought it would be"
We were just looking for somewhere to lay our heads because we intended to be out at the beach and local events most of the day and didn't see a reason to spend close to $200 a night for a place we were rarely going to be in. A lot of the negative reviews that I read about this place seem rather ridiculous to me at this point. It definitely is an older building, but I don't see how that could be a problem, I appreciate the vintage look. Our room was very clean. The price was pretty awesome for what we got AND for the location. The room came with a stove, microwave, fridge and everything else we needed to cook. The shower was cute. I was really impressed with this place and would definitely stay here again.

"Hotel is old - well located."
The hotel is old and a bit rundown. Room was clean. We reserved a Kind and had two twins. On day 2 they pushed the twins together to give us our King. Staff was friendly. Parking is a nightmare. $20 a day to park in a garage a few blocks away. The location is great! I would stay here again for location but my wife disagrees with me.

"Not good"
This was the worse hotel I have ever stayed in. Ever! The door knob came off in my hand. I was told I had a room with a king sized bed....instead I got two twins. No phone in the room. No place to get ice or a soft drink. Did see a pay phone on the 3rd floor however. Very old room. Had to park a block away. They were kind enough to waive the $20 parking fee since there was a "mix up" on the bed issue. Was glad to leave the next morning. You asked for my review ...good or bad. It was bad.

"Are you kidding me."
No parking on site. When you walk into the dingy entrance you can smell the foul odors of cigarettes & age of the area. If you are over 6' tall this is not for you. The beds are small as well as the bathroom. The shower is not clean and the window shades need to be changed. I would never stay here again. I travel a lot and this is the bottom of the barrel hotel to me.

"Cheap But Not Recommended"
Hotel is on a busy street and not quiet nor view of beach. Staff were not there when we arrived at 3 AM and we had to wait outside and bang on the gate with no way to contact inside until someone let us in. Facilities were rather run down but during the day staff were pleasant, there is a pool, it is within walking distance to the beach.

"Very nice staff, but..."
the rooms and hotel are in desperate need of renovation. The furniture was rundown and the lamp was broken. There was a sign on the office window excusing the condition of the hotel due to renovations, however it looked like an old sign. I hate to put the place down, because as I said the staff was friendly and the manager even walked me to my door when someone followed me in the locked outer door around 10 pm and I felt uneasy. I hope they are able to renovate in the near future.

"Cancelled Reservation after a couple hours"
This is by far one of the worst hotels we have seen. Aside from being in a very questionable area with shady characters, there is no onsite parking. We had to pay $20 for a parking permit in a lot that was 3 blocks away. No phone or alarm clock in the room. The hotel and everything inside was ancient and in no way sanitary. Hotels.com was extremely helpful in canceling the reservation after check in but this hotel should not be on this site.

I WILL NEVER TALK BAD ABOUT PEOPLE OR THINGS. BUT IT WILL BE A CRIME IF I DIDNT TELL YOU TO NEVER THINK OF GOING TO THIS PLAZA. IT STINKS AS YOU ENTER THE ELEVATORS, THE ROOMS ARE TERRIBLE AND YOU DEFINITLEY THINK YOU WILL BE WALKING OUT WITH BED BUGGS IF YOU PUT YOUR LUGGAGE DOWN. I HAD TO HAND BACK MY KEYS AND SEARCH FOR ANOTHER HOTEL. AT 11.30 PM AT NIGHT. THE PERSON AT THE DESK TOLD HOTEL .COM THAT THEY WILL BE CHARGING ME FOR ALL THE 4 NIGHTS THAT I HAD BOOKED THE ROOM FOR. THEY CHARGE ME FOR ONE NIGHT THANKS TO HOTEL.COM, WHO IN RETURN REFUNDED ME 100%.

"Parking was the only thing that was negative"
I thought the hotel was great. Room was clean. It had everything that we asked for. We didn't really walk around Waikiki so not sure what kind of stores were close by or beaches. We had to cut our stay there short because of the parking. We paid for 24hr. parking not knowing that there were no in and out privileges so unfortunately for us we lost our stall and waisted our money. There were parking passes available but it was limited and it's a first come first serve basis. So if you are planning to stay here then ask, first, about their parking passes or else you would be going crazy looking for parking.

"Waianae Wahine in Town for 3 Days"
Talk about shabby chic. Good place for locals to relax after a long day. Although old, everything was clean and comfy. The only thing, the slider going to the lanai locked behind me due to the OLD latch, I recommend replacing them. Hotel staff had to come up and let me back in. I almost missed my 9am meeting down the road. I will be back again, Mahalo, a hui ho. Marjie

i was able to find free parking in a short walk from the hotel. that saves you about twenty dollars a day. as honolulu and waikiki has become more and more expensive to visit, i will go to outer islands for a less crowded vacation over the coming years, as i travel to the islands at least twice a year. the polynesian plaza is a nice spot for the money.

"Hotel evaluation"
It was extremely hard to find the place to begin with... this could be fixed by a larger sign and instructions in the advertisement. Room was clean, but the king size bed had the mattresses reversed ( twin mattresses should be on the bottom and the large king on the top... I could only use one side of the bed. The slat curtains did not work well and there was a light on outside that was left on all night ...thus a beam of light was coming in to my room constantly. Again, the people were really friendly and I felt safe...

"Cheap hotel in an excellent location."
My teen-aged son and I arrived late (midnight PDT) so I booked a hotel in Honolulu for our first night before heading out for a week in Kailua. As reviews I had read stated, the hotel entrance was indeed not easy to find although my GPS lead us straight to the front door. Unfortunately, unloading our bags was difficult since there was no street parking in front.. In fact, I got a $35 parking ticket despite the desk clerk's insistence that I would not get one. Moving along, the hotel is old but very cool since the entrance is on a busy main street with a long narrow corridor leading to an enclosed courtyard and pool with lush jungle vegetation. Rooms are large, a little threadbare but with a fridge and a nice bathroom with fresh towels and amenities. A big surprise in the morning was discovering the excellent location, close to breakfast cafes and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. At $79, the price was unbeatable and a fraction of the larger fancier hotels close by. I would stay again in the same situation.

The staff was nice and the room was clean but really old and rundown. The bathroom sink was continually backing up. The elevator was ancient. There was some renovating going on, but as far as we could tell there hasn't been any renovations on the upper floors. The location is good. The hotel needs a complete and total reno, if not it's probably time to close it down.

"Run down old place."
This place looks pretty run down. I would suggest looking for another place even if you have to pay a little more. I was handed a metal key (no key card here) and a second metal key I was told was for the security gate and elevator. Then I was warned that I would be charged $60.00 if I lost the keys. The view also was not good. The pool area reminded me of some dingy motel. I was also made to wait a half hour in the lobby when they told me they never received my reservation. As I was waiting, I heard the guy telling another customer who booked on another online service that he also never received their reservation. Luckily Expedia was able to Fax them my reservation and luckily they still had a room open when I showed up.

"run down"
The hotel is old and a bit run down. Lots of traffic noise. Very basic rooms, no coffee in them and they advertised kitchenette but was only microwave and small fridge. The bed was very comfortable. The location is right in the middle of high end shopping area, so it was very pricey to buy anything. We ended up moving to another hotel in east waikiki, for a few dollars more got a better hotel in a better location.
