Great place to stay

We recently stayed here for 2 nights on a family holiday. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and the pizza restaurant at the pool was good. Could use a bit of updating but overal a great place to stay

We stayed here after our Pride of America cruise. It was great, the staff are amazing!! The hotel is a little older (standard for Waikiki though), but the pool area is beautiful and the location is awesome. Would recommend.

This was a very disappointing hotel after viewing photos online.... what you see online does not reflect how dated and run down this place is. Our room had that much furniture in it you could hardly move the old saying "less is more" needs to be adhered to.The shower over the bath was a mission for me having two broken legs and the water pressure left a lot to be desired. Manoeuvring around the bed was lethal with the sharp wooden corners on the base and so much furniture - If there is one thing I would recommend to management "get rid of all the big furniture and open up the space in the rooms they would feel a lot more spacious, claustrophobic and possibly less dated...The air conditioning in the room is very very noisy especially the bedroom unit (they are the old boxes that are stuck through the wall) and we got very little sleep when we had to turn it on.The street outside even though entertaining with the people that are milling around this us a very busy and noisy street even with all the windows shut.On a positive this hotel is well located to the centre of Waikiki with everything within walking distance beach, restaurants, shops, etc. The staff at the Aqua are friendly and very willing to assist you with your needs. They organised our transport to Pearl Harbour and transfer to airport without any hassles "thumbs up".

Friendly staff, Gross rooms

We booked this hotel because it had decent reviews for value and quality on here and other booking websites. Positives were that the staff was so friendly and they left us a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts in our room with a greeting card, and a voucher for a free pineapple from a store down the street.The negatives, however, are why I will never stay at another budget type hotel in Hawaii. The rooms were dirty, with hair on the walls in the bathroom, and crumbs on the floor. We switched our first room because we found a dead bug (I think a roach) on the curtain and the AC unit made a continuous loud noise...and our second room had dead roaches under the bed.Our second room also had a shower knob that came off every time you turned the water off, and the AC unit barely felt like it was cooling the room off. We checked out earlier and checked into a much nicer (which cost more) hotel...definitely worth it to enjoy our trip to Hawaii more.

Average place to stay

I found it offensive to be charged an extra $25 per day for the use of the very average and sometime non existant internet, a pool towel that I didn't use and free coffee in the foyer that I didn't drink! The room was ok except for the old wall airconditioner was louder than a jumbo jet so you couldn't sleep with it on. The house keeper never washed the coffee cup or glasses and took 4 days to replace the soap. The morning staff were friendly but the afternoon staff couldn't even say hello.
