Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Philhh27 Great location and Hotel Vacation
We decided to come back after my wife and I stayed here last year. This time we brought our two boys (young adults now) and we shared a room together. We were upgraded to a larger room which was nice and this was plenty big enough for us.
The stay, just like last year from checking in to checking out was really very good. The cleaning staff were very friendly and pleasant and did an excellent job of cleaning our room. Al the other staff we came across were friendly and polite as well. Although the hotel was very busy we enjoyed our stay and for us it was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyD870 Most relaxing vacation I have had in over 40 years
The Beachcomber is by far the top of the line in a very longstanding and classy chain of properties,
Due to my profession I travel day in and day out. I always try to stay at a Holiday or Holiday inn express reason being I always can relay on a quality place to stay ,
After a long year on the road I decided to use those airline miles and reward points with me and my wife's first trip to the islands. I noticed as I was in conservation with individuals before the trip when they would ask where I was planning to stay and I replied the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber their reply was always very positive concerning the resort not one negative comment .
I can say after my stay I can see why. From the time of our arrival to our departure the beachcomber was unsurpassed in all areas of accommodation . The person at the front desk was so full of positive energy and smiles I was Instantly revived from the long flight.
We arrived around noon therefore our room was not ready, although the wonderful desk help took my cell phone number and said She would call as soon as room was ready.
Around 1:30 sure enough my phone rang and our room was ready,,and much to me and my wife's delight due to the fact I was platinum Elite member our room had been upgraded to a room with a very nice view of the Beach and ocean " awesome " is the only way I could describe the room. The rooms are in excellent condition and spotlessly cleaned. The hallways elevators and restrooms were all cleansed to the highest degree.
During our stay I cannot think of one negative thing associated with the hotel . I urge you to stay . You will not be disappointed .

This is one of the best hotels at a Great location. Good Value for money. The best thing is the Hotel is just across the Street from the famous Waikiki beach and world famous brand shops.
I will recommend friends to try this place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WGBcaver Right on Waikiki Beach
This was a very nice and relaxing place to stay. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The cleaning staff was unobtrusive and did a first-rate job .... very efficient. The hotel is situated right in Waikiki and is close to all sorts of shops and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by doc29 excellent staff
there wasn't one person who didn't take the time to explain and try to help when you needed to know something, not always the case when you are travelling,
rooms a little small but adequate, cleanliness couldn't be faulted
breakfast was included in our package and the hot stuff well, the rest good,
the bar should charge the price advertized on their board not double.
another thing location is great, handy to everything

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CAPTRON BEST LOCATION IN WAIKIKI FOR THE PRICE
You can't ask for a better location. This hotel is in the middle of Waikiki go out the front door and turn left, turn right, go across the street or go behind the hotel and you will find every type of shop or place to eat you would ever want, from low to high prices, you decide. Do not over look the hotel's shops and places to eat because that are great. The only problem we had with the great room we were upgraded to is it was a connecting room and every noise from the adjoining room sounded like they were in our room and the people next door were extra loud.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by robo68 do not stay on second floor
hotel was nice within walking distance to everything the only problem i had with this hotel was my room. it was on the second floor so there was no view except the a/c units and i was located accross from the dining room or banquet hall not sure. so every night it was loud and noisy always someone yelling or talking very loudly, also this room was located right next to the elevators and their chime was extra loud so if you stay in this hotel stay as far away from elevators and the second floor or just dont plan on relaxing or sleeping very well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mBr83 Loud hotel
I will never stay at this hotel again. And I'm a diehard IHG fan. I stay in the IHG chain 200-300days a year. This hotel is very loud. You can hear everything that happens on the streets and I was on the 18th floor. Unless they upgrade their patio doors and walls. Don't not stay at the holiday inn beachcomber. I know I won't because I could not sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CP4ME GREAT PRE-CRUISE/POST-CRUISE HOTEL
We stayed at this hotel for two days prior to our cruise and wished we would have booked an extra couple of days. This was the best Holiday Inn Brand stay I have had. We normally find Crowne Plaza to be our preference, and if not available, Holiday Inn Express to be plan B. However, this HI was a great experience and we wanted to tell about it.
First, about the hotel, we received a complimentary upgrade from our standard room booking to an Ocean view with a balcony due to our reward club status and we were very thankful for that. Although our room overlooked a construction site, the hours worked by the crew below did not cause us to be bothered. The room was large for what you would expect in a metropolitan hotel in the US and that made for nice comfort when traveling with lots of cruise luggage. The maintenance and cleanliness of the room were not issues. Noise, sleep quality, and temperature control were also not issues. We found all staff of the hotel to be exceptionally helpful, especially Rod of the Bell Staff. Thank you again, Rod for all your help. We liked the location of the Hotel in Waikiki because there are so many places of interest within walking distance. Additionally, the hotel is close to a Hilo Hattie’s Shuttle Stop which provides free transportation, but more about that later. One night we ate at Jimmy Buffet’s at the Hotel and found the food and service to be very good. The prices there were very acceptable for Honolulu.
Next, we wanted to mention some other factors that would be helpful when traveling to or from a cruise at this hotel. The hotel does not have complimentary transportation to or from the airport and indicated to us that a taxi was about $50-60, while Roberts Hawaii was $18 per person one way. We opted for that and found it to be perfect. We were met in baggage claim at the airport by Roberts staff, were taken to our shuttle, and made only two stops before reaching our hotel. The Roberts people were great and we would suggest them for going to or from the airport. For transportation to the cruise port, which with Celebrity’s Solstice is at Pier 2, we chose a taxi. Rod, with the bell staff arranged a minivan taxi for us at a set time and we found it waiting for us immediately upon checkout. The taxi ride was $30 with tip. We could have used Roberts for this, but their pickup at the hotel was later than our preference.
Earlier, I mentioned the Hilo Hattie’s Shuttle stop. If you want to travel around Honolulu, do not want to rent a car, and do not want to use public transportation, this is a good alternative. By visiting their store, you can then ride their shuttle free. It travels all along Waikiki and makes stops at several places of interest. The hotel staff will gladly show you where to catch the shuttle.
If you are planning on traveling early or staying late, you would be very happy you chose this hotel. It has everything you need and the staff will make your stay a very happy one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rose2500 Great Hotel - lousy breakfast accomodations
One of the reasons that I Iike Holiday Inn is that breakfast is usually included in the price of the hotel. In this case, it was not. Instead you got 15% off your bill at Jimmy Buffets which was next door. The only item that they had for breakfast was the buffet and it was quite expensive. Considering that we normally only have oatmeal or maybe an egg biscuit, the price for the buffet was a non-starter.
We asked the hotel for some other references for breakfast and received none. So, we walked across to the shopping center where the food service was either very limited (coffee shop) or very high end. We kept walking around and finally found a place called the Cheeseburger place where we got a very good breakfast for $5.95 each.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brown425 Comfortable bed very clean
We stayed at this hotel while visiting Waikiki on our honeymoon. It is right in the center of many exciting things in Waikiki and the staff is amazing. Our tub got stopped up and someone was there immediately. I will say if you are looking for resort style accommodations this is not the place. But that did not bother us because we were not there to stay in our rooms. However, if you are looking for the best bang for your buck this is the place. And the fact that Jimmy Buffets is right downstairs in the lobby was another added plus. Happy hour 10-6. Can't beat that!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Largeaslife Noise & Room Category
Room 2417 is in the 24th floor and inspire of the elevation suffered from street noise. Sliding door seals are in need of replacement.
The room category was technically in the "Ocean View" category but in no way would meet a reasonable persons assessment. Staff argued that it technically was according to the system but in reality it was at best a partial ocean view. The manager did however reduce our rate to a standard rate on request after trying for three days to get reception staff to move us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travelwaveberlln Mitten in Honolulu
diese Hotel ist im Zentrum von Honolulu gelegen und durch eine Uferstrasse vom Strand entfern( ca.300 meter)
bei meiner Ankunft erhielt ich ein upgarde mit Meerblick ( Platinium Status).
Das Zimmer hatte aber die gleiche große wie andere Zimmer auch.
In den Abendstunden ist das Hotel etwas laut ( Party auf der Strasse und die Zimmerwände sind dünn).
Der Schlafkomfort war sonst sehr gut.
Sehr gut war die Klimaanlage ( sauber und nicht zu laut)
Leider ist die Möglichkeit für ein Frühstück dürftig,
Im Nachbarrestaurant viel zu teuer.
Es ist ein Shop im Hotel vorhanden mit überteuerten Preisen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by privat centrally located, will go there again
Waikiki Beachcomber is a very centrally located big hotel one block away from Waikiki Beach. It was nothing special but overall a good experience. Restaurant was good and prices were reasonable. Like all hotels on Hawaiian Islands it is overpriced and you pay for a lot of extras (30USD per day or parking, Business Center not for free like in other Holiday Inn hotels). Compared to other Hawaiian hotels the prices are still ok. Personally I got a room with a view to the ventilation of the next building which was a bit loud, but not really a problem. Overall it was ok and most probably I will come back in case I will be in Honolulu again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mickjad Our stay at Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber
If you like being part of the hub this hotel was great....it was 2 blocks from the beach(we had partial view of the water). It is right in the middle of all the shopping...great for window shopping... very busy so if you like a quiet spot this hotel is not for you....
They do not offer breakfast but you get 15% off at "Jimmy Buffet's" restaurant attached to the hotel....food was good and the place was hopping.... the 15% discount is only good for breakfast and lunch and not for dinner....
I don't know if we will ever return to Hawaii but if we do we may stay there again....

Staff was excellent, very efficient and helpful. From valet to front desk it could have been better. The breakfast buffet has a little to be desired but OK. The noise from the deck is a bit load if you have a room on the front side. Location to shopping and beaches is good, just a short walk and you are on the beach, shopping right out the front door. I have stayed here before and will stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bootsey R. Excellent location and friendly staff
My second stay at the hotel and I just enjoyed it even more. Its centrally located, near the beach, near an apple store, near Victoria Secret, H&M and Forever 21. Got comfortable rooms and pillows. Just great to relax tired feet after a day of walking, and hiking.
This hotel also has a self laundry that is most helpful.
Staff from the Concierge to the Front Desk, the Tour Desk and even the cleaning people are friendly and so accommodating.
Internet is ok and room with a ref is a MUST. Coffee is also excellent, except for the creamer and the substitute sugar, looks like its been stocked for ages.
Otherwise perfect place to enjoy Waikiki.

This hotel was tucked in amidst all the hustle and bustle of the area , yet was very comfortable. There are plenty of shopping and places to eat nearby, and the beach access is across the street as well.
Overall, it was a nice place to stay, and the breakfast was very good....especially the coffee !!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lillytree Friendly service and comfortable room
The hotel is conveniently located in Waikiki. Check-in was quick and easy; the people at the Front Desk were friendly and courteous. I was upgraded to a room with a partial ocean view, but the accomodations were the same as my reserved room. The room was clean and comfortable, but looked slightly dated. There was occasional noise from the street during the evenings, but nothing that was prolonged or excessive. If you want complete quiet, don't stay downtown. The only negative was the hot water. The water at the sink never got past luke-warm. This could have been due to being on the 15th floor. If so, it is not a valid excuse. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
