Historical Traveller Reviews of Waikiki Resort Hotel
Solid 2 rating.from A TripAdvisor Member
If you are going to Waikiki and traveling on a budget this is likely a place for you. The hotel is clean and the staff generally friendly. The rooms are cleaned daily and sleeping is acceptable. Although their views are blocked by other adjacent buildings you could see a portion of the beach and the surf from our 16th floor room. The elevators were not consistently fast or slow, sometimes fast sometimes slow.
On the negative side the parking is $10 per night, which is typical around the area though, & do not look for any luxury features here... as others have said, the painting and wallpaper are noticeably patched in places, the furnishings are dated with almost all drawers having broken slides (the drawers fall out when opened), and the AC vents are ultra dusty but functioning. The tub was dinky small so believe what other reviews say. We also found one pay movies was messed up and another started in the middle. The most upsetting was a number of calls, around 20, we made that never went thru we got billed for, at around $3.50 each. I personally heard, thru the comptuer speaker, that it was something to do with Sprint but when the hotel tested it and found the destination was a modem they would not remove them from the bill… a little unseen hidden charge, 70 - 80dollars worth, I guess.
I rate it a two stars because that's exactly what it is... o.k with some problems. I'd probably look elsewhere if we go again.
GREAT LOCATIONfrom glyma1009
Pleasantly surprisedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We loved it!from A TripAdvisor Member
Avoid if you can, good location is all it is..from jakamo1962
stay, it is geared mainly for this market.
The rooms are run down, reminds me of staying in Poland
20 years ago,,rust in the bathrooms, you get the picture.
The food in house is again Korean which is not my
personal taste. It is cheaper and it is in a great location
and parking is only $10 a day which was good.
We are a famliy of 4 and this was our first time in Oahu
which is disappointing when you compare it to the other
Islands. The north shore is great but for us that was about it.
Go to the big Island, its great for everything and no highrises
which are everywhere in Honolulu
Decent Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It is close to everything.
It is a traditional 1970's building, do not look for luxury, you will not find it. It is modest, clean, and safe. The pool is very small, but when you are so close to the beach, why bother with the pool?
Make sure you book a Superior Room not a Standard. remember you get what you pay for. Send your kids there with their friends, but if you go with your wife...spend a little more and stay at a better hotel.

Top Local Tips for Honolulu
Like to buy? Stay here! Every shopping center was so near it was owesome! Rodeo drive was a ten minute walk. It was Very pleasant!
Do your homework, before you get there. There is alot to cover in Honolulu, so book some activities before you leave home. Also use the bus, it may take a little more time to get there, but it will save you alot of headaches trying to drive around and find parking.
The Bus, LUGGAGE on The Bus The Bus is excellent value and if you don't plan on renting a car, you can get to all the places you want to go whilst on Oahu using The Bus. It's won awards in the past as best public transportation in the States, and I can see why. BEWARE - they don't USUALLY let you take any baggage too big to fit under your seat onto The Bus, so if you're going to the North Shore but aren't planning on renting a car, I advise you get very friendly with the Bellman at your Waikiki hotel. We packed a small bag, left the rest of our luggage at Waikiki hotel, and then collected the luggage when we were leaving the island.
