Good for few nights in Waikiki, Yes it is a bit noise because of the street proximity, but we stayed also at Courtyard and there were no difference. Rooms are simple but have all you need, they are cleaned every 4 nights, + you get 10% off if you stay 7+ nights. The front desk was nice and helpful, hotel...

An "everything you need room!" When it rained it had everything we needed to chill. When it was sunny our balcony had great sunlight (402) comfortable atmosphere and the fact they had beach supplies made all the difference! Thanks Waikiki prince hotel!

The hotel's location is amazing! There are shops and restaurant nearby and the beach is only 2 minutes away. The price for the room is good and there are no hotel fees, which is awesome! You do have to pay for parking if you have a personal vehicle. The room was outdated like something from the 90s but we had...

We had a great stay at Waikiki Prince. I already knew it was an older hotel and will be undergoing renovations in March, so I wasn't expecting the Ritz!!! But the room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, we had a kitchenette with toaster, microwave, etc... We were a block from the beach and we paid $100 a night!!!!...

Just a great little [45 rooms]hotel. This was my 7th+ stay. All was well. There is an upgrade in the air and probably an price increase on the way as well. I've been told the hotel will close for March and April. The facts are that it is only a couple of blocks from the beach and has a kitchenette...

All the amenities are good, and the location is perfect. Only thing was loud dumpster pick up every morning in the neighborhood. The nose woke us up around 5am each day. If you have Earth's this place would be perfect.

We spent the first two nights of our thirty year anniversary trip here - and I elected to go low budget. This was the lowest priced accommodation in Waikiki and I suppose I got what I deserved. The staff were good and the price was decent for the expensive Waikiki area. The television was good but everything else was a...
