Excellent location, just in the heart of the shopping district. Got free upgrade to an ocean view room. Enjoyed the stay and will come back in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrssmooth Friendly Staff and Great Service
We stayed at the hotel on both ends of a 7 day cruise of the Islands. The staff was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. They even remembered us when we returned for our visit after the cruise. The location is excellent for walking to great venues, such as Waikiki beach, shopping, and wonderful eating establishments. I recommend a stay at this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by timler99 Public areas
We were very disappointed when we came back to the hotel to relax around the pool and have dinner and found that the area and the restaurant were closed to the public for a private party. This put a bad taste in our month as it was not announced it was going to happen.
We had to go back to the room and change and go find another place to eat.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pd154 good hotel, massive construction right next for for a few years
good hotel, good area, not too far from beach. My room (and about 1/2 of all rooms) have massive construction site right next door for a few years. Used to be the international market.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gale39 Staff and Concierge wonderful
The staff - from the desk clerk, to the bellman, to the manager, and to the concierge were ALWAYS there and willing to make sure that we were comfortable and everything went our way. I cannot say enough about James-the concierge - who constantly went out of his way to make sure that we saw the best of things to see during our stay. He received a gold star from these girls from Alabama. He is a great asset to this hotel along with all their cheerful employees. Thanks for a safe great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tibster Our fourth very enjoyable stay
This was our fourth trip to Hawaii from Sydney since 2011. We have stayed here at the Beachcomber Holiday Inn every time.
Personally I think it is a reflection of excellent management – the staff are all lovely – very friendly, helpful and good at what they do. From the first bellhop you meet through to checking out – all are excellent.
I will make a personal thank you to two outstanding people –
Firstly Debbie the Assistant Manager who assisted us with our room booking and was just lovely to deal with and talk to.
Secondly our housekeeping room attendant Taciana – such a lovely, helpful and trustworthy lady – we felt very safe and a wee bit spoilt by her friendly care and attention. A huge thank you to you both.
All the staff we interacted with surpassed our expectations – again.
The hotel itself is as everyone says, beautifully located in central Waikiki opposite the Cheesecake factory and is within easy walking distancre of anything in Waikiki. We walked to Ala Moana as well – need the walk after the great food to be found in Waikiki. It is well located for catching Waikiki Trolley, buses or taxis. Macy’s onsite and all the shops and Hawaiin Centre and beachwalk are very close.
The rooms are comfortable appointed and if you opt for a high room facing Kalakaua Ave, you get great ocean views with the bonus of all the activity on the Ave day and night. Absolute Ocean front hotels have nothing to see at night and that’s when you are in the room!! The general ambience of the place is a happy bustling efficiency and lots of people going about having a great time. Everyone was happy and friendly.
Jimmy Buffet’s on site restaurant is under new management (Monkey Pod) and the food really has improved since. The breakfast pancakes are divine.
The bar is nicely redone although the loss of the surfing memorabilia etc through the management change is noticeable – but have a great beer or cocktail, a swim and some bar food and all is good again. Bar staff were great. Free iced lime / lemon water in lobby each afternoon was most welcome as you came in out of the heat.
Will we be back? Absolutely.
