Reviewed 12 March 2017

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in room 504 as the start of a 2 week vacation/ wedding destination for our daughter. The apartment we rented wasn't available yet. It was ridiculously noisy in the early mornings so ear plugs are necessary. I believe it's all garbage trucks making the noise. The outdated room was immaculate and we enjoyed the mini frig. Room was nicely sized and secured entry. Beach towels were on the honor system as were beach chairs, umbrellas, etc..Super-close to everything and perfect for the budget traveler.

Room Tip: Room 504 balcony can actually see the ocean.

The unit is self contained but very dated. The bathroom is clean, and spacious. There is a stove and a small efficient kitchen, but it needs extensive upgrading. The airconditioning, although adequate, is noisy. A good secure key actuated elevator is a good plus. The price for a Waikiki stay is excellent, and there are lots of food sources nearby. One block from both eastward and westward public transportation. Construction for updating rooms to start May 2017.

Room Tip: Wait until after May 2017 when construction is over.

Location was excellent; only 2 blocks from the beach. Hotel is surrounded by nicer, newer properties. This hotel is old but it was clean and served the purpose quite nicely for us. Very good overall value. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Room is old style and small but it was clean.

My second time here and it was even better. Cheerful, comfortable, private, all that was needed from our week in Hawaii. The balcony was very much appreciated (my boyfriend and I are smokers) and we delighted in having a place where we could enjoy our drinks, the sunshine and not be moaned at by non smokers. The beds were comfortable, the tv enjoyable and of course the location was UNBEATABLE. Smack in the middle of everywhere central. No outrageous "resort fee", daily fresh coffee and beach towels. Great staff - who are helpful, friendly and make a big effort without being asked. It is the ONLY place that I would EVER think about staying in, when visiting Waikiki. Without question. I am a little nervous to see the hotel after the renovations, but I have high hopes. I am already planning a return visit to Waikiki in November, and absolutely can't wait to open that door into my room at the Waikiki Prince!

The location of Waikiki Prince is so good that within 2 min walk distance you could reach beach, store and restaurants and everything. The staff of the hotel is nice and ready to offer help anytime. The hotel can help to store your luggage with a little fees while other 3 star hotels in Waikiki do not. We are satisfied with staying here.
