This little gem on Koa Avenue, one block back from the beachfront, is truly the place to stay in Waikiki. The super courteous staff, the clean & quiet rooms plus the very easy access to all the islands' tours gives you everything you need to enjoy your holiday in Hawaii. And if you're inclined, there's a Karaoke bar in the... More

Stay Hotel Waikiki was exactly what I wanted for my trip. As a solo traveler without a car, Stay was perfect. Literally 30 seconds from the beach, walking distance to every part of Waikiki and beyond, a block from The Bus, and is a safe, clean hotel. The folks at the front were amazing - super friendly and welcoming, and... More

I stayed after a wedding but the location was good & that's about it. The room was very old & the aircon was so loud I had to use ear plugs to be able to sleep. It was nothing like what I've seen on the photos on their website. I got the feeling that it was near new but it... More

Very small and not so clean bathrooms...the bedroom is spacious. The biggest advantage is the proximity to the waikiki beach. We had to park elsewhere since the hotel's parking space is very small. There is a karaoke place that we could not visit in the hotel.
