Waikiki established its reputation as a getaway when the Moana Surfrider opened its doors in 1901. Today, more than 30,000 hotel rooms are packed in the skyscrapers along the golden sands of Waikiki Beach. At the end of Waikiki, Diamond Head towers as an enduring landmark. West of Waikiki, Pearl Harbor offers a somber testament to history and the victims of World War II.see all hotels in Honolulu
"Castle Disgusting Waikiki"
We arrived after 8:00p.m. & dark. It was an older, smaller establishment, but that did not bother us. The receptionist was very pleasant, the open lobby was next to the pool. So far, so good. That was our first impression. The pleasantry stopped there. As we walked to the elevator, things went downhill from there. The "laundry-room" was open air, looked […] like to hadn't been attended to for several weeks. As we entered the elevator, chipped - dirty walls, (keep going family it's only a couple of nights). It will be ok. As we arrived at our floor & the elevator doors opened.....the walls in the hallway greeting us were disgustingly filthy (We are not a tidy people). Splatters & just general grease & grime from everyday use & months of NO CLEANING or painting nor vacuuming. Upon entering the room, the grease & grime continued on all walls & doors, floors seemed to be vacuumed in the pathways. We had a "kitchen" unit but there was no way we would have eaten from there without washing all dishes first. The bathroom appeared somewhat clean as long as you didn't look in the corners or under the sink. The towels smelled of bleach & looked clean? Sheets on the beds smelled of bleach & also appeared cleaned? We were totally disgusted with this hotel. It was filthy, filthy, filthy. We did a first for our family, while out for dinner we found a different hotel & moved. So sad, with the correct management this could be a nice place to stay but not at the present.

"If you need a suite; OK. Otherwise; not so good."
The hotel exterior and interior appear decrepit and is in a not-so-nice part of Waikiki. Don't try to sleep in as the outside noise, both at night and in the morning, is loud. The suite itself is depressing. The TV channels are quite limited. The bed is rock-hard! It was helpful to have a Whalers 1/2 a block away, as the suite had a mini-kitchen. Small […] bathrooms, limited space for toiletries. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A.C. did not work, matresses were old and worn. People were passed out in the hallway and in the parking lot.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was one of the worst experiences of travel I have ever had! The hotel was gross, old, dirty and disgusting! I can't even say enough bad things about this place from the moment we arrived. If I could have afforded it, I would have checked out immediately. However, being on a budget... With children, we made due with hat we had.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do Not Stay Here"
Not a fun place to stay, it's old there is nothing good about it only the fact that it is close to shopping stores and the the beach. I do not recommend anyone to stay here. They do have a charge for everything at the end you are better off paying a little more for a better place. WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN.!!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"really run down and out-dated"
we only stayed one night and i was glad for that. we had a "3 room suite" turns out it was a two room with an ajoining room. the hotel rooms were really old looking. everything look old and run down. the bathroom floor looked like it needed to be bleached. the shower was so dirty that I only washed my hair in the sink as I was going to be at a different […] hotel the next evening. it was really close to shopping areas and the beach. I went downstairs to use the computer and paid for 30 minutes to print my boarding passes and after 12 minutes of getting errors, it told me I needed to purchase more time as the remaining 18 minutes were not enough to print what i needed. what a crock, my passes finally printed after paying a total of 10 dollars for what should have been an hours time and was actually only 15 minutes. what a racket. I wouldn't stay here again. i'd pay the extra for a nicer hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was the worse place I have stay on my life, they charge for every single thing including, WiFi, $ 9.00 dlls a day for that, coffee for you coffee maker is not included a $1.00 for a single serving, parking $20.00 a day.

"Think twice before you book this place"
Our first time in Hawaii and let’s just say things are real different here. Their customer service is non existent. Their housekeeping is non existent. Their beds feel like the ones they have a camp. We had to ask several times to have our room cleaned and this was after 3 days without service. I had to demand they change the sheets, because I asked […] them twice before we left only to return after being out the entire day with a 2 year old…and they didn’t even come into our room. The front desk says she’ll see if there is anyone there that can change them or they would just drop the sheets off. I got off of my high horse and said “I am not changing the sheets!” “You need to get someone up here to do it!” Well I guess I should have been a little nicer, since the sheets they brought us were worst then the ones we already had on the bed…the “clean” ones had stains, holes, and were so thin you could see through them. Oh I forgot the best/worst part. Upon our arrival and entry of our room I had to immediately call the front desk and have them remove the bedspreads. They were visibly stained beyond repair…and we never saw them again (thankfully). Would I stay here again? No, not ever, no way, no how. Was it a great deal for someone that thought they wouldn’t mind staying there? Yes. Would I recommend this place to anyone? No Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

ROOM STINK! when we entered the room, we were really surprised by the smell -- just like a NEVER CLEANED KITCHEN. the towels in the bathroom appear DARK. the tiny closet-like shower place is dark when the curtain is closed. The sheets are dirty.... the only lucky part is we only stayed one nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room had a bad odor to it. There was no parking available. You had to walk 2 blocks to park your car. The a/c units were extremely loud. They had separate a/c units for each bedroom (this was a 2 bedroom unit) and they both were very loud. We had to sleep in the living room to get away from the loud a/c's. It was definately an experience we won't […] forget. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This Place was way worst then a motel 6. I couldn't even sleep because of the old people smell, and the thought of cockroaches running around.

"Never coming back to this hotel"
During my stay at Hokele, I only received one housekeeping out of the whole week. They did not give me new towels as I requested. Wifi was not free, which is ridiculous. There was no TV in the bedroom, only one in the living room, but was too small for my family. I will not be staying there the next time I go to Hawaii. Rather pay a little more for […] a better hotel and SERVICE. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Worse than a roadside motel!

And no i did not take any picture of this hotel because it make me feel embarass of why i choose to booked with this hotel. IT NASTY AND OLDGenuine Expedia guest review
We checked into our room and were immediately disappointed!!! At first glance it wasn't too awful. The room was very small, there were only 3 of us, but we couldn't all move around the room at the same time. The bathroom was HORRIBLE!!! There was rust coming from several places in the sink, the shower had mold in it, and the sink was almost impossible […] to use because the knobs were so tiny and close to the sink that they were hard to turn off. There was a notice on the mirror that we would get new towels every fourth day. We never got clean towels the entire 8 nights that we were there. The air conditioning was useless at night, it made so much noise turning on and off that we couldn't sleep, so we had to turn it off at night, so it was very warm in the room. The beds were fairly comfortable, as long as your ignored the mysterious brown stain on one of the mattresses. The location was fine, as close as you can get to the beach for the amount of money that you spend. The staff at the front desk was somewhat friendly, but they didn't have a lot of knowledge that I would expect, like good places to go hiking, etc. My family has always stayed in cheap hotels, but this place is simply awful!!!

The online pictures of the hotel and its are not even close to what it actually looks like. The larking is not really great cause there's only very few of them and for others they have to park a block and a half down the road. I would not recommend this place to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Booked one-bedroom suite for 4 but was given only a studio and they said it was the order from Expedia. Asked the reception to verify but they said I should do it myself ! What an Aloha service ! Luckily I am from USA, or otherwise I have to spend may be hundreds for calling up Expedia ( over 1 hr of telcon w/Expedia) by roaming phone ! The Reception […] locates at the entrance, but you never be greeted when walking by or even when trying to talk to them for questions, neither in the morning nor in late night while they didn't have anything to do. If you don't want to have a sense of in-out a Jail, don't go there. I had been in Airlines industry for 25 years with frquent opportunities of using hotels for duty travels and leisure travels, this was the worst service I ever encountered.

"The worst hotel ever and will never stay there again"
To be exact, this is a motel. The room is very old and dirty. The quilt and blanket are all very old and dirty. There is bedbugs. The smell is bad. They charge $20 for parking and $20 for internet service each day. It's really not worth your money to stay there. After one night, I switched to another hotel which is much better and reasonable fee. I […] will never stay there again. It will ruin your vacation! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was very disappointed in the hotel. out of 4 key cards none worked very well. it became a joke as to how may times we had to try to get into our room. The room with a double bed had no place to put luggage. it was either put it in another room at night or trip over it. the furniture looked like it was very old and out of condition. the couch was not […] very comfortable to sit on. i was expecting to have a tv in the bedrooms and was disappointed when there was not. the alternative parking was much better than parking at the hotel. when we asked for a key to open the alternative parking at night, we were told we had to come back and get one. it was late when we got back. it would have been easier to go straight to the parking garage than make a stop and then go back to the garage. the letter we received said we could pick it up before we left for the day. The only thing was that is was clean. but i was embarassed to have my parents stay there. If i had had the money, i would have changed hotels. The desk clerk, (female) could not tell me how far away hard rock cafe was.. ( 1 and 1/2 blocks actually) i would think that it would be helpful to know the points of interest around the hotel. There was a male that did know where to find restaurants etc. bottom line is, i would not recommend this hotel and i will not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Horrible hotel for vacation"
This is regarding the recent trip i completed with my family in Oahu ,hawaii.My experience as far as hotel is concerned was horrible.I felt very bad how come travel companies like Expedia can put this kind of hotel in the package. When i booked ticket through expedia there was a trust factor that it will be good but this trip broke my whole trust on […] expedia. Hotel Name:Hokele suites 412 Lewers St Honolulu, HI 96815 It was like a lodge for college going student.In no ways it was meant for vacation. 1.Hotel is very old.Bathroom is old and not clean.It was a half bathroom with just a curtain.No tubs etc. 2.There was no parking space available in the hotel for all the 6 days i stayed in this hotel which was so inconvenient whenever i have to take my family to a place.They gave me parking 4 blocks away in another hotel premises. 3.Air condition sound was so loud in the night and you cannot sleep. I would suggest any of the expedia employees to spend 7 days vacation in one of the room and let me know if they can stay there for that long for a vacation. There were lots of better hotels starting from $90 near to hotel.My question is how come expedia has this kind of horrible hotel in a vacation package. After this terrible experience i will think twice to book through Expedia in future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible condition and unhelpful and unfriendly staff"
This hotel was a complete disappointment! The hotel itself is in a terrible and old condition and not nice at all. The staff wasn't friendly and not helpful,when we had problems with the laundry. In addition, they treated us like we were stupid and didn't help or said sorry. The room was tiny and not clean. The bathroom was even worse. It really old […] and dirty. They didn't change the towels every day (we had to request new towels everyday at the front desk), they didn't clean the bathroom and they didn't bring new shampoo or bathsoap.

The sofa bed & bedroom bed are like sleeping on box springs and not a bed the sofa bed mattress is warped.

"Watch out for Parking situation at this hotel!"
This hotel is very old, and has a deplorable parking situation with its garage. The garage is basically a L-shaped aisle that is one-way access inbound only. Not sure how the City even approved this kind of parking design. So if you need to back out your car, GOOD LUCK. The parking spaces are extremely tight and are flanked by one-foot wide column pillars […] on either side. There are no warning signs regarding this tight parking situation. The drive aisle is not wide enough for you to swing your car wide and park safely. If you don't watch out, you will almost definitely scrape the walls or your door or bump other cars. Avoid parking at this hotel, or if you absolutely have to park here, allow plenty of extra-time to park and to pull out. If you are renting a larger or more expensive car, try and get that extra insurance coverage. The hotel itself is pretty old, and nothing special. In all, a very mediocre place to stay. Use this place only if you are operating on a very tight budget! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hokele is in rough shape"
The hotel was in sad shape with very old appliances, bedding, furniture, fixtures, etc. A miss-match of silverware, glassware, pans. The security included an elevator that you had to use your room card to operate -- good idea. But the stairway to the floors opened to the street and was free to use by anyone, and not within eyesight of the front desk. […] The continental breakfast was a joke with a few less than fresh danish and muffins, oj, and coffee. The biggest plus is that it is convenient to Waikiki and reasonably priced. Not for the weak of heart, but we survived it, and enjoy Honolulu anyway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Felt more like a hostel than a hotel"
The six of us stayed in the 2 bedroom suite which was extremely small and only had 1 tiny bathroom. There were stains on the towels and also the bed sheets. The air-conditioner in one of the bedrooms was pretty much on its' last stand, making extremely loud noises sounding like it was about to explode which kept us up all night. The bathroom is extremely […] out-dated, small and had a general unhygienic feeling. The shower was by far the worse shower we have ever experienced at a hotel. It was weak and you had to constantly adjust the hot and cold taps as if the entire building was fighting for the same water tank. The breakfast buffet was revolting which made us all sick. This didn't feel like a hotel, it felt more like a hostel. Definitely wouldn't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Alot left to be desired"
Upon arrival the staff were un-inviting and un-welcoming. The room left much to be desired. Very plain and basic. My room didnt recieve room service each morning, there were many days where my partner and myself would head out for the day at 7am and come back at 5pm and the room was still not touched by a cleaner. I even ran out of toilet paper in the […] bathroom. I spoke to front desk and they advised that they would send some up "straight away" we went out for lunch and it still hadnt been replaced. The bathroom was very small and out-dated. The shower was a tiny corner shower with no room to move, and had a dirty old shower curtin to prevent water going on the bathroom floor. The hotel is based in a very noisy part of Waikiki, there is a gay bar right next door and there always seems to be the noise of trucks reversing early in the mornings. I wouldnt reccommend the hotel to anyone based on the above. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Is this the worst hotel in Waikiki"
If you are planning on staying here, don't do it. This is the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in in Waikiki. The air con sounded like a jet engine, one of the beds was broken, not to mention how uncomfortable they were in the first place. We could hear every word from the people next door, we could even hear the person they were speaking to on speaker […] phone. The bathroom was ancient and if you are larger than the average person, good luck getting into the shower via the 40ish cm gap. We have stayed in many hotels in Waikiki and this was without doubt the worst. It is not advertised as a cheap crappy hotel, you will find it amongst the regular hotels..but don't be fooled, it is not a nice hotel by any means. There is nothing good I can say about this hotel.
