The hotel itself was modest but nice, very friendly staff and clean and comfortable. Not a luxury hotel but a good place to come home to after a full day of activity and sleep well in the comfy beds. It may not be ON the beach but it is close enough to join all the action in 5 minutes or...

Ok, You get what you pay for here. The hotel as a whole is a bit dated but is not in disrepair by any means. The rooms are clean and spacious. You can go a couple of short blocks and be on the ocean but you'll pay dearly for that. The Ilima works good for the budget minded. Staff are...

I have enjoyed staying at this hotel this week and will stay at this hotel again. The central Waikiki location is very convenient. The hotel is a good value.

Considering the prices for beachfront at Waikiki, this hotel represents seriously good value. admittedly, the building is on the old side, so the fixtures and fittings are a little dated, but the hotel has a pool, is 2 minutes from everything, the room was tidy and spotless, the shower had good water pressure, there was a room safe, and the...

Although, the room I stayed in was a studio, compared to the adjoining rooms at the Hawaiian Monarch, other members of the family were staying at, could have fit into the room at the Ilima. The reception staff were always friendly, congenial and helpful. The housekeeping staff exceptional, the room was always cleaned, straightened and stocked. The hotel is within...

We initially chose this hotel because we are smokers, and they can accommodate us. The hotel turned out to be very nice.. clean and comfortable, with helpful, friendly staff. Close enough to Waikiki beach to walk in 5 minutes. Lots of amenities close by. Definitely would stay there again..

We really enjoyed this hotel. Having a kitchen in the room, free parking, and being able to walk to the beach was just perfect for our family. We will definitely stay here again as long as the prices are reasonable.

Great Location! Very nice and helpful staff! Rooms are just what we were looking for. We had a balcony which was nice. I and my family will be back in Oahu sooner rather than later and we will defiantly choose the Ilima while in Waikiki.
