We stayed here our first few days on Oahu and would recommend this hotel to other travelers. The room we had was a good size and had a view of the city, mountains, and ocean. I loved that the hotel was a short walk to the beach and to Waikiki stores and restaurants! I'll come again!

Hotel staff are all very pleasant & friendly - especially Erica in reservations! She was SO helpful & caring. ??? That's where the compliments end however......the hotel is in desperate need of repair & updating!! Carpets old/dirty, bathroom from the 70's, pool small, balcony FULL of concrete cancer - almost too scared to stand on, a/c noisy & old. Price paid $187.00 USD/nt. Would rather have paid more to stay somewhere more reassuring!

The Reservation staff and the front desk staff was very accommodating, when I wanted to check in a day earlier than my original reservation. They said I had to check out and check back in for the hotel stay if I wanted to check in a day earlier. They made it happen where I didn't have to switch rooms and it was awesome. Overall this stay was a good today and I plan to be back. On a side note they have breakfast buffet which is $12.95 per person and they offer free Kama'aina Parking...

The room was cleaned every day, the views are fantastic, and you can't beat the location with walking distance to the beach, shopping, and food! The rooms are very pretty. The bad - Guest room amenities are not free. They cost $10 per day. The pool area needs work, but why go to the pool when the beach is within walking distance?? The ugly -... Read more

Our family just relocated to Honolulu and was staying in Waikiki Gateway for couple of days. Everything seems pretty decent except the Wifi didn't work in our room which slows down our house searching process a bit. Other than that, it was a pretty nice stay. Especially, I would like to give a big thanks to one of the hotel staff "Miles Tynanes" for his warm Aloha spirit. He's been very friendly and helpful after we checked out with our 10 luggages.

Stayed for 4 days and the room was o.k. Price of the room was good but small for a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. Location was good. But our bathroom was very run-down and is in need of repair. The waterfall at the pool wasn't working as advertised. The view from the balcony was beautiful. What made the stay worthwhile was the staff. Front desk staff always a smile and aloha. The valet guys were awesome! Showing kokua to my o'hana and always asking how our day went.

This hotel is meant to be 3* I'm not sure I'd even give it 2* and it was by no means inexpensive. On arrival at the hotel after dark it was clear to see this was not the best hotel. We checked in and to be fair the staff seemed lovely. We had booked a deluxe Waikiki view room but the room they gave us was far from deluxe. There's a bad smell in this hotel the minute you get out the elevator. We'd hoped by the time we got in the room the smell would disappear. We were seriously disappointed! No... Read more

I am really satisfied with the staffs who welcome guests, is friendly and helpful. It is good to stay at a resonabel price for shorterm. You can access this hotel to the airport within 30 minuets by uber.If you arrive the hotel early before check-in, you can keep your luggages in the hotel, It is $1 per luggage. This hotel provide high speed Wi-Fi in the room. But the Wi-fi only can be accessable in front of door.

We stayed here for a week, the rooms are clean and well maintained with a decent 50" tv. The pool looks better in the pictures than it is, but the hotel is only a short walk from the beach anyway. Abc store downstairs is handy and convenient. Overall a good hotel considering the money we paid, only issue was the wifi which was extremely slow and dropped out frequently.

If you're after basic accommodation, this is it... location is a bit far from the beach having to walk with little ones. Pool is very small. Having washing machines was convenient for us. The beds need to be updated and bathroom as well. Housekeeping was very good though.

We were not able to get a booking in Hilton when we arrived for our family vacation in Hawaii so I tried to search for another place. Surprisingly this hotel was available. I was happy because the place is very conveniently located to all places. The rooms are big for a family and pretty well maintained. They provide water and basic amenities. I would recommend this to vacationers in Hawaii wanting to cut some dollars for accommodation.

Stayed for 1 night recently and there is nothing wrong with hotel. Location is good and the rooms have been renovated fairly recently ( new flat screen TV; new towels etc ). What was wrong is their charge for pool, room safe, internet, newspaper ( USD10 to cover all these which are free in many other places ): when the room safe didn't work and the pool was closed. So I ask for a discount ( not unreasonable ) and the receptionist did ask the duty manager and the answer was NO which was very bad ... Read more

The bed and the TV were big, but the pillows and bedsheets were dirty. There was a locked door which I think was the rest of the suite (the kitchen, living area, and large patio).

Stayed two nights last week and I was really impressed with hotel! The room was fresh, I had two balconies. Front desk was great, the only complaint I have is the bathroom! Something has to be done with it! You spend all that money upgrading rooms yet you leave the one room where people actually look for faults alone! Other then the bathroom you cant go wrong with this hotel.

By far the worst hotel I've ever stayed at in my entire life. The rooms weren't too bad just mediocre but what really was a deal breaker was that every morning at 7:30 AM we would be woken by loud banging and drilling going on till 7:00 PM. Eventually we had enough and called the front desk. They said they were remodeling and the noise couldn't be stopped. They should've informed me before booking if there was going to be construction in every room around me but they failed to do so. The front d... Read more

The location is pretty good: Ala Moana Center, Waikiki Beach, and the Royal Hawaiian Center are all within a 20-30 minute walk.

The Waikiki Gateway was rated a 2.9 out of 4 stars by Travelocity. A more accurate score should have been 1.9 stars. The rooms and amenities are old, the bath tub was peeling and there was insufficient space for a desk in the room. Finally, the hotel decided to begin full scale renovations on our floor which disrupted the quality of my stay. If the hotel needed to do the renovations, they should have not rented rooms on my floor.

Although the hotel itself is somewhat dated, the rooms are nice and the customer service is awesome! Don't pay extra for an ocean view. It wasn't worth it. The hotel is to far away to see the beach so you only get a slight view of the ocean over the trees that are in its path.
