Very comfortable room and beds. Elevators very slow, maybe due to on-site construction. Staff friendly. Parking only via valet and $40/day.

Aloha Amy,Thanks for the review. We'll pass your concerns to management. Our parking has increased to 45 per day for any new reservations since we are a different hotel now. Our parking price is very competitive since most hotel parking or public parking in the area is around 50 or more per day. We hope we can host you again, especially after the bar and restaurant opens in Spring 2023.Mahalo!

The advertised photos show dang and bar and none of that exists. It is a small, basic room with one microwave in the lobby, ice machines (sometimes working) on some floors, room service every 3 days, old, run down, under construction, dirty…. But that being said …. MOST of the staff is very polite.

The Waikiki Sand hotel was one of the best hotels I've stayed at. They are remodeling and they had already finished our floor. There was new mattresses, fresh paint, and new floors. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was perfect, although it was filed with salt water. The hotel was very clean and close to everything. The only thing I was disappointed in was the restaurant in the lobby was not open. I could not feel to bad because there are so many great restaurants close by. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The staff showed nothing but Aloha. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location was perfect as well. A few things that would have made it even better is if they had a small market in the lobby and a microwave. But ABC store is just on the corner so no complaints. We will stay here again.
