Stayed here with a friend and couldn't fault it, about half price of a central Waikiki hotel, but an easy walk into town, bus stops and shuttles pick up from outside door. Pool good and views over Hilton meant we could enjoy luau every night for free and twice weekly fireworks!

I frequently take business trips to Oahu from a neighbor island. I decided to give the Ilikai a shot! However, I was rather disappointed. The room is outdated, particularly the bathroom that looks like it belongs in the 1970's. The bedding was also on the cheap side. The room had no additional pillows or blankets. Lastly, the curtain was broken...

Aloha, We were disappointed to hear your comments about the property and you will be pleased to know we are currently "under renovation" that will include a complete makeover for all of our guestrooms. We hope you will offer us a future opportunity to experience the wonderful location and spacious remodeled guestrooms.

stayed in room 2224, very spacious & clean. No complaints at all and would thoroughly recommend Ilikai. Great location and easy walk to all parts we wanted to see. Better than our first few nights we stayed right in the middle of Waikiki and it's not our style at all. Free wifi was a bonus and fast speed was great....

My family and I recently stayed in a two bedroom suite at the Ilikai and we had the most enjoyable time! The staff was wonderful; cleaning staff, valet parking staff, beach side restaurant staff and the front desk staff! The two bedroom suite was great for a family of four with a teenager and a young adult. We had plenty...

My family of 5 just stayed at the Ilikai in a two bedroom suite. It was very clean and perfect for a family of 5. The location was great as we could walk to the Ala Moana Shopping Centre and took cab rides to the beachwalk restaurants and shops. They have a nice coffee store in the basement albeit expensive...

This property has seen better days. Nice location and friendly staff - HOWEVER, this place is in need of a remodel. Rooms was both shabby and OVERPRICED! Worn furnishings, stained wallpaper - photos on website were likely taken 10 years ago.

The location of the Ilikai was great. It was on a bus route. It was an easy 5 minute walks to Ala Moana Shopping Centre for our groceries (Foodland prices were to be expected in a tourist area). We managed to take the bus back to the hotel with two 5 yo twins in tow and 2 big bags of...

Aloha, Sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience through Waikiki Beach Rentals and the Condominium you stayed at within the Ilikai complex and hope you will consider other more full service options that our Ilikai Hotel operations provide.

Bit surprised that this room we got was nothing like the photos on website. Maybe we just happened to get a room in very dated floor? I regret not booking a four star hotel deal just $25 more, after parking fee $28( Valet Only)

Aloha, Am not certain whether you stayed in the Ilikai Hotel portion of the building or rented through another operator that manage units within the building.
