Mediocre hotel but the people were great
Room was clean, but super small and the bed was not comfortable at all. it had large dip in the middle. the sink and mirror were stained and kind of gross. The people were super nice and helpful. onsite coin laundry was a plus.

It was great, room was clean and comfortable. No issues at all, loved the fact you could have rented a movie at the reception for free, and had a PS3 in the room! Was great stay. No complaints. And cheap also! Will definitely use it again in the future!!

Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki -
Aloha! Needs a little uplift....curtains, bathtub, some deeper cleaning but was good for what we needed. Great spot, good for people watching and noisy cars with no mufflers thinking they have a hotrod. central to EVERYTHING in Waikiki, friendly accomodating staff. No problem switching rooms to our liking, nice housekeepers, free newspaper, beach towels to use, laundry, water and ice machine in lobby. I think they used to have a breakfast prior to covid in lobby area. Only one suggestion would be to have a coffee area for the guests in the lobby as it is spacious and would be nice for all. It would be a nice perk to have. ABC store is at end of street on Kuhio 2 minutes away. Got coffee there but don't get it later in day. COLD Don't forget to keep your receipts for free offers. My stay was for 3 weeks over the Xmas holidays. Just booked another stay for end Feb. Reasonable pricing compared to the others.....why not! Rooms aren't cleaned daily only every 3 days but if you need towels etc they will bring it to your room. It'll be nice to see the staff again and enjoy the beaches and restaurants and walks. They will find the answers for you should you need help with anything. Wheelchair access, they call a cab and they are there quickly. $35-40 to airport from Aqua. Pool small but clean. Shades over in the afternoon. Stay on the street side for more action. Can watch people walking on Ala Wai canal and the rowers. See you soon. Aloha! :)

Excellent staff, very friendly and accommodating. Although Aqua Aloha Surf is older (dated), it's still nice. Enjoyed being close to the beaches, shops, restaurants, local attractions. Price was reasonable but unsure of cleaning fee.
