Service was great. View from the room was simply amazing. It is a condo/hotel so could be cleaner but overall very nice stay.

The pool was nice and having a DVD rental was neat as well. Very handy. As far as linens and sheets, it could be a little more comfier and softer. We were also next to a room that was under construction so there was a lot of drilling and banging going on. Our last night there was came across a cockcoach in the bathroom. So overall our stay was okay because we spent most of our time out and about, but pictures were definitely false advertisement that's for sure.

Sub-par standard and cockroaches!

Cons: Cleanliness of the rooms, smell of the floor. Better pictures that accurately describe the condition, size and type of room.
I've usually had good experiences with hotels but I have to say I was very disappointed with the Aqua Skyline Hotel at Colony Island. I was excited about the packaged deal from Travelocity and the pictures online made the hotel room look really nice and renovated. But I was disappointed to find out that the hotel was very old, had a bad odor on the hotel floors and the cleanliness of the rooms, especially bathroom was not up to par. Upon arrival of the bathroom I saw hair still stuck on the walls of the restroom and around the corners of the floors. It was a bit concerning, but I figure I let it slide. But the conditions worsen. Over the course of the week, we had cockroaches creep into the bathroom through the sink. The hotel is part live-in with tenants and part regular hotel so I guess its hard to manage residents' cleanliness. There are a plethora of hotels in Waikiki and around Oahu and you can definitely get more for your money. I would not recommend staying here. In fact it got so bad we ended up checking out early and paying for a much better hotel down the street.

Do not stay here..you don't get your money's worth

Location: Waikiki beach is a 10min stroll and you're walking through a huge shopping area with restaurants so it doesn't seem like a long walk.
Checking in and out took forever for some reason. The halls reek heavily of cigarette smoke and it gave me a headache almost immediately. The room wasn't as bad, but it just smells like an old place. The beds are hard; it's a 2 star hotel in my opinion and I wouldn't stay there if you want a good nights sleep. You can rent movies&video games, which was a nice amenity, but you have to go off site to catch the transportation. It's a close walk to the beach however (10mins). So there's pros and cons, but I wouldn't recommend this place at all.

Close to Waikiki.

Pros: Location and the lanai.
Cons: Carpet in our room was in need of being replaced.
Location: Easy walking distance to Waikiki but you will definitely want a rental car to explore the island. Parking rates are "average" I imagine.
We were upgraded to a suite on the 44th floor of this hotel, i.e. Penthouse. It was obviously updated in places, others not so much. The carpet was certainly dingy, you will want slippers or shoes on. The kitchen was nice but was I not in a hotel? No dishwasher detergent, paper towels etc. The bedroom area was nice, bath nice, lanai spectacular! That being said we were situated on the east side with sunrise views, and views of Waikiki and Diamond Head ... not sure we would have had the same reaction on a different side or lower floor. Easy access though to Waikiki, walking distance. It's beautiful. Parking fees are a bit hefty in addition to hotel charges. Additionally our air conditioning worked great in the bedroom but the rest of the room remained a bit uncomfortable.

Great place to stay

Friend and I (we both now live in Seattle but were born/raised on the Islands) decided to rent a hotel at the last-minute for the 4th of July weekend. This condo/hotel was a great place as our base while we went to the beach & watched fireworks at Ala Moana Shopping Center. Pleasantly surprised with the room and its décor -- very boutique-ish. The only drawback was that our room was right outside the trash chute. While none of the smell got into our room, it was a bit challenging to leave and get back in. We were only there for 2 days plus we spent most of our time outside of the hotel so no biggie for us but might not be for others.

This was a horrendous hotel.

Pros: none!
Cons: bed bugs, filthy, parking cost $25 per day
This hotel was awful. The first room we went to had 1 double bed and a cot - we paid for 2 double beds. Then we were moved to a room with 2 double beds. My friend and I both got bitten up all over by bed bugs. When we lifted the mattress they were very visible. Why hadn't the staff seen these when they were supposed to clean the room? The bathroom was never cleaned. When we complained about the bed bugs and showed them our bites and an actual bug they moved us once again. They said the room was an upgrade but there were knobs missing from the cabinets, the shower curtain was the wrong size meaning we had to soak up the water with the towels. After having saved a year for this trip it was extremely disappointing.
