Excellent

Posted Jan 19, 2018
Our experience in Hawaii, more specifically at the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Ilikai was outstanding. From top to bottom, the cleanliness of the room, attentive staff and room comfort/location was second to none. We can't wait to stay here again.

Nice hotel for the price

Posted Jan 18, 2018
Pros: Spacious room
Cons: Restaurant
Location: Shopping, restaurants, beach, marina
I have stayed at the Ilikai on many occasions. It is not normally my first choice, but it is close to where I like to be in Waikiki. The room is very large and well equipped. Very nice full kitchen. My room faced the street, which is very loud. My biggest disappointment at the hotel was that Sorento's, the bar/restaurant on the top of the Ilikai, was permanently closed. That left very poor dining choices at the hotel. Thankfully, there is a lot close by. The hotel is very close to a lot of nice things to see and do. Valet service was quick, and there is good access to the Ala Moana Mall and Honolulu, as well as access to Waikiki. All in all, I enjoyed my stay.

Good amenities and decent space for family of 4

Well equipped kitchen. Good bed. Both kitchen and bed amenities are clean. A short drive or trolley ride away from busy Waikiki. Nice view and walk to marina. Parking is $20 for 24 hrs.

Great location.

Posted Dec 9, 2017
Good location and close to mall and beach. We arrived the hotel after the check in hour.We booked king size bed room,but we got two double beds. Next day, when we checked in with the staff, we were told that if we need to swtich room need to pay 85 for cleaning fee since we stay one night already. Beside that, everything was great. The hotel is bit old ,but clean and comfortable.

City view room at Illikai

Posted Dec 3, 2017
Pros: The full kitchen. For people who like to "dine in" this room is very suitable.Bed and room furnishings were very good and newish. Wi-fi good.
Cons: TV is free channels only. Air con is old "window rattler" type. Noisy but effective.
Location: Child friendly beach close by. Walk to Ala Moana shopping center. Or catch the bus
The Illikai is an old hotel now 50+ years old but built to a high standard. The rooms on the "mountain view" side are cheaper for a reason - traffic noise.

Nice hotel close to beach and transportation

Posted Dec 2, 2017
Very comfortable room with only downside of traffic noise on balcony, but quiet when doors closed. Great access to beach and transportation and close to major shopping mall.

Nice hotel close to the beach.

Posted Nov 27, 2017
Room is spacious. Very considerable to supply things you need in the kitchen. Beautiful ocean view from the court yard of the building. The hotel itself is a bit old, but worth the money I paid. We didn't swim because of the weather, but walking on the beach along the striped hotels on Waikiki is enjoyable by viewing their Christmas decorations and listening to the music in the bars. We are now in another resort on Kauai island, almost same price, but I feel Marina resort is much better.
