8/10 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I liked the tiny coffee pot in the room, hated that since they didn't clean daily they didn't also include coffee supplies for each morning that a guest would be there. So, paying fees for something I didn't get to enjoy. Bathtub was too small for an adult to comfortably enjoy, and the shower head needed to be replaced since the hard water had calcified it and it struggled to comfortably output water (a better showerhead could probably cut the water output while increasing the enjoyment). Coffee pot was such that it was impossible to fill (under cupboards) without spilling water. They clearly thought of that, so all the floors were easy to mop up.

It was close to everything. The staff are nice. I didn’t like the fact the we have to throw our own trash and there was no cleaning the whole time we were there. I thought the $32 resort fee/ night was for nothing. We stayed for 8 nights.

During this covid 19 pandemic, hotel should provide in room paper glasses for drinking coffee or water. But they are still ceramics cups and glasses. Not hygiene at all. Also my second night no hot water, I have to wait for 30 mins for them to fix. So I finished shower at 11pm , not enough sleep that night coz morning had to wake up for checking out. They did not even offer late check out for me.

I like it was convenient to get to locations all around the area. Short drive to shopping malls and restaurants. I did not like the parking garage. The garage space was tight and hard to get out and in. Plus that you have to pay $30.00 a day to park.

The newly renovated hotel was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All our needs were met, I as for a extra blanket, and was given one, no questions asked. Pool was so nice and just the right size for Kapunas.

Best affordable option in Waikiki
Our stay was incredible from a smooth check-in with bell hop service to the ease of them helping call a cab as we checked out. The beds were comfortable, rooms were spacious, and they included a ps3, mini-fidge, microwave, and coffee maker for added benefits. The free water filling station, coffee station, movie rentals, and beach item rentals were icing on the visit. Did we mention affordable for Waikiki! Easyily located we didn't need to rent a car either because the trolley and bus stop is close by. The beach and shopping districts are within walking distance. We will definitely be staying at Aqua Palms on our next visit to Waikiki.
