Historical Traveller Reviews of Waikiki Gateway Hotel
The hotel is great!!!from Northernangel
The front desk were like family and so helpful to me. The room was clean and I love the use of the free internet in their lobby.
The continental breakfast is good too every morning.
You receive value for your money. I highly recommend it to anyone.

An OK place, with Internet accessfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The "continental breakfast" was not impressive (donuts and toast), and we did not check out the pool (why bother when there's the beach).
The best feature was the Internet access right in the room. They also have a computer room if you don't bring your laptop.
I thought it was ok, and I would stay there again.
Great for the pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Rooms are very basic, but the staff are very very friendly and helpful!
Really, all we needed was a place to sleep.. during the day we were so busy with the sights of Oahu, we werent in our rooms during the day anyway. Rooms are clean and tidy, furniture may be a bit dated, but the beds were comfy and the rooms were serviced daily!
Quick walk to the beach, and if you stay here, you got to try the restaurant across the road (TGIF)..!! Yummy... great food, and their mozarella cheesticks are to die for!
A bit worn but reasonable value for moneyfrom Member From Shellharbour Australia
If you are on a tight budget and want to be reasonably close to beach etc. then this could be the place for you. If you have a little more money to splurge with then another hotel might suit you better.
A great placefrom A TripAdvisor Member
d stay here again.from A TripAdvisor Member
Parking? It's valet parking. They do the parking and retrieving. Zero problems for us.
Noise? We were on the 12th floor across from Nike Town. Zero noise. In the morning, we could hear the buses below and some sidewalk construction.
Breakfast? As with other cheap hotels, bought pastries, hot coffee, some juice and toast upon request.
The service? Everyone was friendly and helpful.
Location? Though it took about 20 minutes, we walked from the New Otani hotel on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki to the Waikiki Gateway...that's basically from one end of Waikiki to the other. It's not far from anything. The Bus to the Ala Moana shopping center is right outside the front door, and the Bus to Diamond Head is just across the street.
If we got the same rate or close to it, we'd stay there again. At a higher rate, perhaps we'd look for a hotel even more central with a better view and perhaps a fresher continental breakfast...but, hey, going budget is going budget.
Have a good trip.

Hotel OK, parking BAD.from meyww
Never again at the Waikiki Gateway Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
its fine!from spindle
what i needed. Sure, it may be one of the elder hotels in Waikiki, but
it serves the purpose well. The room was in good condition,
clean,everything worked well, and the Business Room, with its new
computers was a fantastic bonus, made it so easy to keep in touch with
family and friends. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, and it is
an easy walk to Waikiki Beach, or over to the shopping area downtown.
Also, its location means if doing a bus tour, you are generally one of
the first pickup spots, so you can pick the best seats in the coach,
and also usually one of the first drop off points. With the ABC store
in the lobby, as well as an Aloha V.I.P. tours desk, almost everything
i needed was in easy reach. I found the only negative thing was the
Continental Breakfast was not worth the lift ride to the top floor.
But, most important of all, all the staff were great, and were eager to help and please.
So, for value for money, i thought it was great. I will be staying at the Gateway again without hesitation on my next visit to Hawaii!
Top Local Tips for Honolulu
Early Bird Specials Almost all of the Waikiki restaurants have people standing outside offering coupons and early-bird specials around 4:30 to 5 p.m. before all of the tourists are out in the streets. We got a great deal at Atlantis Steak and Seafood. They were offering a $9.95 shrimp and steak dinner as their early-bird special. With drinks and tip it cost me under $40 for myself and 2 teenage sons to have a steak and shrimp dinner! We later went to the International Market Place where a man passed out 2 for 1 drink coupons and free appetizer coupons per family, so I was even able to enjoy 2 happy hour drinks while my sons had free appetizers for under $6 for the 3 of us! My tip is to go out and eat early and then look for the happy hour specials after eating.
Comfortable Stay Hotel room did have a musty smell when we entered but after the air was turned on we never smelled it again. Bathroom very clean, linen on beds very crisp and clean. AC worked good but could use some TLC or replacement. Carpet clean. Furniture needs to be updated. Overall it was a really comfortable stay.
Hire a car to see Ohau We hired a convertible for 7 days to see Ohau outrside of Honolulu. If you are interested in the beach outside of Waikik, this is a must. If you want to go to the Waimea Valley Audobon Centre you need a car. If you want to visit the Byodo-In Temple in the Valley of the Temples you need a car. If you are self catering, as we were, you need a car to get to the supermakets. They are cheap to hire and economical. Beware though the traffic on H1. If you want to get to somewhere on that highway allow plenty of time. The traffic jams a horrendous, regardless of the time of day.
