Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

The Pagado has been here for years. A local hotel off the beaten path of Waikiki. Close to Mall and other shops. The beach is a short walk. If you're on tight budget and need a place to crash, Room rates are reasonable. Then this is the place. It is old,still has window AC units. The Pagado Floating Restaurant is...

kekuwene, Manager at Pagoda Hotel, responded to this review

Aloha John C, Mahalo for taking the time to write a review of our property! You are correct that we have been around for years and we are a favorite of locals and malihini alike. Currently, we will soon be completing the refurbishment of all of our Tower rooms and are planning renovation on our lobby in the near future....

I booked a 1 bedroom room kitchenette online and the photos online of the rooms in the Terrace building are NOT accurate. I found hair and dirty sheets on 2 twins, the paint was peeling in the tub, the rubber non-slip grip for the tub was moldy, there were ants, a dirty stained carpet, dry yellow mildew stains on the...

I'm disappointed in the cleanliness of the rooms. 1st bad exp. Was cockroaches dead all over the floor. That was the building across the front desk bldg. Seen about 10 of them as soon as I entered. Next was the security door (same bldg), couldn't open it from the eastern door which wasn't that big of a deal. Recently stayed...

Aloha Francis C, Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts of your stay with us. I apologize for your experience with bugs in your room. One small drawback to the Terrace side of our property is that there are open hallways, susceptible to the environment. Please know that we do have pest eradication services that come in...

Booked a room here because of a function that I knew was getting out late. It was way better than what I experienced years ago. First, their elevators were completely modernized and has that key-card security feature that I absolutely loved. Second, I was given a room on the 12th floor which was totally refurbished. Loved the splash of color...

The hotel was kind of what you would expect to get for the price you pay but I had ants crawling around in my bathroom which was a bit disturbing making me wonder what else might have been crawling around.

Reviewed 22 August 2013

We've stayed at this hotel on several occasions. This hotel was the most affordable during our time of travel and we chose to stay there on this trip. I was very impressed on some of the room renovations; new clean A.C. unit, new carpet, new tile at entrance, new paint, new and brighter linens, and new interior in the elevator....

We stayed on the Terrace side of the Pagoda hotel for 20 days while doing a job in Honolulu. It was the most inexpensive place the company could find during high tourist season. The rooms were very old. Paint, carpet and furniture was showing its age. All the appliances worked. The staff at the hotel (especially housekeeping) tried to do...

Reviewed 19 August 2013

The reviews and pictures of the hotels did not represent what our room looked like at all...when we first entered our room we were both shocked at the run-down carpet with major wrinkles, majorly damaged furniture, creaking air conditioner, bad smell, antiquated wiring, and obvious decades-old paint. When we requested another room we were offered another room in the same...

Aloha Tonia B, Mahalo for taking the time to post your comments. I am sorry that you did not have an enjoyable stay with us. I was able to deduce what room you were in and we have taken your recommendation and replaced the carpet. Our pest exterminators do bi-monthly treatment of the rooms, but I also apologize for the...

I am usually one of those people that will give an establishment the benefit of the doubt. Even after reading some not so great reviews about this hotel, I decided to give the Pagoda a try after comparing the rates to other hotels and not wanting to be stuck in the middle of Waikiki. I thought that since we would...

Aloha Jay Q, Mahalo for taking the time to detail your experience at the Pagoda. I apologize for all of the inconveniences you experienced during your stay.

My family and I stayed at the Terrace in Room No. 409, from July 14 to 18, 2013. When I checked in at the front desk I was told that even if I use my credit card to pay for our room, that we would have to pay up front for the whole bill. I asked the clerk at the...
