              my room was OK, another room assigned to a friend was very poor, have a good look at the room before committing also WI-FI inter net is not free, but $9 per day! be prepaired.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              Save for money. Good location

              Too noisy. Can not sleep well occasionally.

            • Couple
              5.4

              Location is good and the price is decent for central Waikiki.

              Seems like a family-run business and one of the men was far from pleasant. The rest of the family (young daughter, grandma) were very nice but this one gentleman couldn't have made it any clearer that he didn't want to help us. The hotel is super super old and could use major renos--the shower was falling apart and the room is really old- fashioned. The kitchen is listed as well-equipped but definitely far from it--nothing to wash dishes and random cutlery from someone's house.... Cleanliness was fine for us but we were wondering if other rooms are better.....

            • Family with children
              8.8

              Clean rooms, full kitchen in room, view from balcony, location.

              Sub-par air conditioner.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Price, location, size of room, full kitchen, staff very helpful/nice

              Older furnishings/decor. Lots of street noise, noisy air conditioner.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The staff was very friendly and helpful.

              The street noises got a little loud at times.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              It is close to the Waikiki Beach and Ala Wai Canal

            • Family with children
              7.0

              I like Holiday Surf Hotel for the room rate was suit for me and my budget. It's closeness to the International Market and Waikiki area is good for a little walk. A good jogging route and good view for canoe practice and golf course. A bus route is also closing by and its accessible to the other attractions. It is also not far from the zoo and waikiki aquarium.

              Nothing - I was happy to have my daughter who just graduated from high school to spend few nights sleeping in a hotel in the Waikiki area for the first time in her life. It was another part of her completion of high school gift.

            • Single
              7.4

              The location was excellent and the price was unbeatable. Best part is they accept debit which was great for a person with no credit card.

              You get want you pay for but I knew that going in so nothing caught me by surprise. The only thing is families come from other countries so they will cook and do the everyday thing so be prepared for some smells and loud people.

            • Group of friends
              2.8

              Location was the only positive. Very old, smelly place, old tv and facilities. Would not stay there again.

              Not sure why they take an extra deposit of us$150 as there isn't much to damage there, the place is so run down. Staff not very bright, or helpful. Spoiled our stay in Honolulu a fair bit.

            • Couple
              4.6

              Affordable and even though it is 3 blocks to the beach, it was a really quick walk, with lots of interesting stuff on the way.

              I did not like that the hotel advertised a full kitchen, yet barely had the necessities needed to cook a meal. Not even baking sheets for the oven. Also, it was advertised that each room had a DVD player, which we definitely didn't have. Also, I paid an extra $25 for wireless internet, which only worked one time. Every other time I tried to log in, the connection was so slow my internet connection would time out. Finally, the water in our room was turned off with no notice, and when it came back on, the water came out of the faucet brown. Disgusting. No way I would ever stay at this hotel again.

            • Couple
              9.6

              Great value, very nice staff, decent location

              The carpet in our room could use a cleaning/shampoo.. almost seemed sticky.

            • Single
              2.8

              Did not like anything about my stay. Checked out after the first night and checked into a different hotel.

              The condition of the room we stayed in leaves much to be desired. Mildew caked onto the windows and window sill; paint peeling off of the walls, cracks all over the bathroom sink; mildew in the shower, bed pillows that were just a tad softer than rocks; stains on couch. Would not recommend this hotel for anyone.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Those who expect fancy facilities, will be disappointed. However, if you travel with a family and need a simple suite with a functioning kitchennette, in the walking distance from the beach and all the transportation, this is a great place for you.

              Internet is provided only for a fee. Calls also must be paid for. So that means you have to walk to Starbucks and use the connection there (3 min) and walk to a telephone booth.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Manager helped us with any difficulties we had. The modest price for 16 nights. The staff were always very helpful.
