Tiny, tiny, room!from rusty98tj
Hotel service was adequate, but the breakfasts (buffet & sit-down) were below average.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel (esp. for a honeymoon) and I won't be staying here again if I find myself back in Oahu. Mahalo!

Surprisingly great!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great Gem of Waikikifrom A TripAdvisor Member
Dispite its big resort size, this hotel truly has charming charactor unlike anyother hotel chains in Honolulu. Rooms in Banyan wings are smaller due to its history, but has a lot more charactor. Service at this hotel was superb. we were greeted like their family. Just ask, they're more than happy to serve your needs. I was amazed by this hotel's level of detail and servicemanship. I will definetly stay here again and again.
t book it through Priceline; Stuffy !!from SirLunchAlot
They absolutely do not give a thought to your requests! The rooms are well appointed with above average bathrooms and nice furniture, but tiny for Priceline booked rooms; our room was so small I couldn't bear to open out large suitcase or get my laptop out. The Marriott down the street has much larger rooms and better customer service. In fact the Marriot Waikiki's room had an office area (desk, PC and addt'l Lanai) that was as big as the Surfriders whole room and yes, via Priceline.
Also, our room was on the "street view" and very noisy at night with partiers and at about 5:40 am, you will be awakened for sure by the delivery trucks that all show up same time for the 20-30 adjacent businesses with there abnoxious backup beepers for two hours straight!!!! This is no joke; I travel for a living (100 days per year) and have never heard so much noise from a 4 star rated room! Go to the Marriott and walk 30 more feet to the beach (across the street) for a 20-40% savings and a bigger room and possible upgrade.
Moana a beautiful hotel dwarfed by big cityfrom A TripAdvisor Member

Will only stay at the Moana Surfrider when we returnfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff was extremely professional and courteous and bent over backwards to accommodate our requests. We originally booked a partial ocean view to save money. When we saw our room, we were not pleased. We were on the third floor looking over the roof - hardly any view of the ocean at all. This was not what we had in mind for our Waikiki vacation. We went to the front desk and requested an upgrade. Even though the hotel was fully sold out, they managed to put us into a full ocean view room for 4 nights. My recommendation - spring for the extra money - the full ocean view is well worth it!
The beach is too small, but what beach isn't in Waikiki. The location, however, can't be beat. We bought air mattresses and paddled out in the ocean forever and the water never got rough (this was summer). My daughter took surfing lessons on the spot, which was very convenient.
If I had one complaint, it was the quality of the fruit served for breakfast. It was supermarket quality. The pineapples tasted nothing like the delicious pineapples we had in Kauai the week before. Despite the marginal fruit, I will still give this hotel high marks.

Make sure to rent a car in Oahu We had seamless booking through the hotel (Moana) and were able to rent a car through Budget located across the street. We were able to rent a car every morning for three days and return before 9:30 p.m. so that we did not have to pay for parking. Driving in Honolulu was stress free for a larger city - drivers were very polite. It was definitly worth it to rent a car and travel up to the North Shore and see the sights. The staff at Budget were fantastic to deal with - we hated saying goodbye to them to!
If staying more than a week Explore the mountains and beaches outside Honolulu with a rental car.
