Considering the prices for beachfront at Waikiki, this hotel represents seriously good value. admittedly, the building is on the old side, so the fixtures and fittings are a little dated, but the hotel has a pool, is 2 minutes from everything, the room was tidy and spotless, the shower had good water pressure, there was a room safe, and the...

Although, the room I stayed in was a studio, compared to the adjoining rooms at the Hawaiian Monarch, other members of the family were staying at, could have fit into the room at the Ilima. The reception staff were always friendly, congenial and helpful. The housekeeping staff exceptional, the room was always cleaned, straightened and stocked. The hotel is within...

We initially chose this hotel because we are smokers, and they can accommodate us. The hotel turned out to be very nice.. clean and comfortable, with helpful, friendly staff. Close enough to Waikiki beach to walk in 5 minutes. Lots of amenities close by. Definitely would stay there again..

We really enjoyed this hotel. Having a kitchen in the room, free parking, and being able to walk to the beach was just perfect for our family. We will definitely stay here again as long as the prices are reasonable.

Great Location! Very nice and helpful staff! Rooms are just what we were looking for. We had a balcony which was nice. I and my family will be back in Oahu sooner rather than later and we will defiantly choose the Ilima while in Waikiki.

This was our 6th or 7th stay in 11 years. Staff was friendly and helpful, as usual. The excellent king mattress felt new and so did the sofa. The kitchen was adequately stocked for having some meals in the room (coffee maker, tea pot, full fridge, microwave, stove, toaster, a few pans and 4 place settings). And there were no...

We stayed there last year on three occasions. The first time we had a very noisy air conditioning unit that kept us awake a bit. On the second and third occasions, we had good rooms. Staff are very friendly and the place is close enough to the beach.rooms clean and we felt very safe.

This place is worth a look at. If this were a new property, it would be classified as a Boutique hotel. The rooms are large and very comfortable and clean, although the kitchen and bathroom décor is aging. Kitchen is small but has what you need. No central air but the wall unit air conditioner works well enough to cool...

Island of Hawaii, Hawaii

The staff was great, both checking in and out. We didn't use the kitchen due to a short stay, but it would be great for a few days to save a little money on food. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet with a great view towards the mountains across the Aliwai Canal. Only one block to Waikiki Beach.
