Mold in room

This hotel is the most nastiest place I have ever set foot in. From the smelly rooms, to the old smelly furniture, to the crack heads hanging out in the hotel whenever is the worst accommodations ever. I was so disgusted by this place that I walked most of the night to avoid going to the room. The host two females are very polite but they need to demolish this building. It's clear that people also live in this hotel with their dogs and all their junk. People put their trash in the hallway which made it even worst. Demolish this building and rebuild ASAP.

Stayed for the night. Always stay here while in Waikiki which is about every 3 months. Love the staff and have never once had an issue with the room. Easy walk to Ala Moana Shopping Center and trolley stops right at the main door.

Great Room, Price, and Location

Just spent 5 nights at Aqua Palms, my third trip to Waikiki and first at the Aqua. My cousin who is a native recommended it and I checked out the reviews on Tripadvisor. There are some mixed reviews, but my stay was fantastic. Location was great, also great room with king size bed, large TV, refrigerator, microwave, desk, real closet, dresser, and marble bathroom. Incredible value for Waikiki and this location, for less than $100 per night.Was on Floor 10, where you have a better view and more sunlight than the lower floors. Staff was very helpful and went out of their way to assist and be friendly. Guests are fun, with many friendly Japanese visitors. 10 minute walk to beach, and you are in the center of many clubs and restaurants. Hotel offers a number of perks including a free bus shuttle around town (not to the airport). Unlike numerous reviews that complained about elevator wait, the longest I had to wait for an elevator was 2 minutes. I stayed 5 nights and the room was cleaned and all towels changed every day. My room also came with a free dessert (you must request the coupon for free dessert when you check-in). I had trouble cashing in my dessert coupon as the restaurant was closing early for maintenance, so the front desk made a special call to the restaurant and got them to serve me after closing time - had fantastic free fried Hawaiian ice cream! I was by myself, so single occupancy. If double occupancy, room with large king size bed may be considered a little tight, so recommend room with two queen beds. The king bed room was great for one person.

Good value for the money

It is convenient to the beach, and close to the Ala Moana Center. It is clean and, also quiet if you stay in a city-view room. This was my fourth time staying in this hotel. The front desk used to be very nice and helpful for the past three times, unfortunately, this time I ran into someone new and they were not as friendly as before. Still it is a good value for the money in Honolulu.

Great value for Waikiki!

Great value! I had a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street, and the Aqua Palms was a convenient budget option. We stayed in a city view room with a king sized bed. All the rooms have a lanai, fridge, and microwave. The daily $18 resort fee includes wifi, towels and a Waikiki shuttle (compared to the $35 daily resort fee at the Hilton). The Aqua Palms has a small pool that re-opened after construction during our stay, and the beach is a 10 minute walk away. The lighting in the bathroom could be brighter and the elevators could be faster, but it was still a great deal. The room was clean, and the staff was super helpful. It looks like they are in the midst of updating, and I look forward to visiting again to see how it turns out. They also have a weekly happy hour with their free signature drink. I've stayed at the Hilton, but I'd rather save the money and stay at the Aqua Palms. Who needs fancy pools when you're minutes away from the ocean???
