Very nice hotel for this price

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness.
I arrived far before 3 PM and the staff checked me in earlier. The staff was very helpful and pleasing.The room was clean and quiet which for me was most important. Good location close to Waikiki beach and shops. A definite worth to go if you search for a low cost hotel where you only shower and sleep and don't expect luxury.

Our stay at the Wave.

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Everything went smoothly at our stay at the wave. It's a nice quick walk to the beach with everything you need at a short walk. It's perfectly located with restaurants, bars, board rentals, ects. The hotel even stored our luggage until our transportation came to get us so we didn't have to pack it around town with us. I would stay there again and again.

a block from the beach - easy to get around

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: it's close proximity to the main street in Honolulu and the beaches
Cons: get the rooms updated including window replacements to control outside noise
Location: beaches but a block away also including plenty of shopping and food places - both eat in, take out, and food markets
hotel was 'pleasing'. we got what we paid for. needed a room for 6 people and got a room with 3 queen-sized beds, but limited seating area and not a separate area. room could have been a bit larger - but i guess we got what we paid for in Honolulu - quite an expensive city! hotel staff pleasant considering we were 'supposedly' in the middle of a hurricane-to-be - never happened as the storm went west. not the hotel's fault that the city almost entirely shut down and i'm talking about even the city buses were not running. the hotel itself was clean and the staff personable and quite helpful. the rooms - based on our accommodations - in dire need of updates. lots of construction noise outside and if rooms were updated with newer windows, less outside noise would be heard - including the winds.

Aloha. It's great to hear that you were pleased with the Aqua Waikiki Wave Hotel's staff and cleanliness although we are sorry to hear of your experience having been here in Waikiki during a hurricane warning. Luckily for us and all of our guests the storm diverted. We certainly can understand how frustrating this may be for anyone traveling to the area. Although not a common situation, the safety of all residents and guests are top priority here in the city and therefore it may cause closures of establishments and transportation. Your comments and suggestions will be shared with our team, mahalo.

Very good value and handy

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: Value for money
Location: plenty of restaurants near by and shops too and on the main bus thoroughfare so easy to get about with markets in the lane alongside hotel.
Stayed 6 nights and found it very good value, only a few hundred meters to the beach via the side lane, and had a glimpse of the sea.

Nice hotel close to the beach and restaurants.

Posted Aug 27, 2014
We had a huge room, uncrowded even with 3 queen beds, one in a screened alcove perfect for my daughter and her baby. There were two sliding glass doors to balconies. Only 3 negatives--no swimming pool (would have been nice for baby and when the box jellyfish came in); the concierge was less than helpful, and though reservation was for 6, only 3 towels at first.

Convenient to shopping and beach.

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Staff, Staff, Staff...............VERY NICE!
Cons: General repairs. Re-stocking of towels and soaps.
Location: Very Good.
Hotel staff was over-the-top nice and helpful. Room was comfortable but little things like bathroom light was out, tub was leaking into room below and soaps and towels were not always replaced everyday.

Hotel stay to visit Pearl Harbor

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Hotel was okay but not enough towels. Also, the King suite is not big enough for 4 adults & 1 child.
