I am being generous in giving this hotel two stars. The only reasons it didn't get one star is that I saw no bugs and the bed was comfortable. Other than that, Ewa Hotel is a shitbox. The room was tiny, which isn't a huge deal, but there was no closet or even a rack on which to hang clothing!...

I can not express enough how absolutely WONDERFUL the staff is. My fiancé and I are staying with the hotel as we settle into moving to Hawaii. The staff were so accommodating and made us feel like family and not like just another customer they are making money off of. Doug, Edsu and Michelle, literally take customer service to a...

Not a bad little place to crash. Cheap and offered a two burner stove, microwave, fridge and dishes. I would recommend washing dishes again before use. Had free DVD's to watch a long day at the Beach. Two Blocks away from Waikiki Beach. Had a balcony which is nice to sit on or dry towels. Nothing classy.

Stayed twice in last week there, super convenient for beach, zoo, and short walk to where more of the main action is. Was on a budget so room rates were pretty reasonable - but on arrival had to pay an extra tax not included in online booking (hotel fee, tax, wifi etc- circa $13/day) which surprised me, and surprised other...

My favorite place to stay now for several years because of friendly staff especially Tracy, Etsu, Doug and GM Lendy who treat you like family. The rooms are clean thanks to the always cheerful maid cleaning crew and the beds comfortable. The location is also nice at east end of Waikiki near kapiolani park and diamond head. I highly recommend.

We are extremely pleased with this hotel. The staff is excellent. The rates are fantastic for a hotel with location so close to the beach, bus transportation, casual dining and shopping. The rooms are larger than most and the decor although bit dated are maintained excellently. Loved our stay.

We have stayed at many hotels here in Hawaii and the Ewa Hotel is by far one of the best. Why? Excellent customer service, housekeeping, and great location within a reasonable price. Michelle, Tracey, Etsu, and Douglas rock the place. Thank you for everything that you do! :)

Stayed at the Ewa for a few days. Location is good, close to Waikiki. The hotel is older & could use some TLC, but the staff were super friendly. I would come back to stay with this hotel if I came alone again. I'm not that fussy so it may depend on who I travel with again

This is a budget hotel. Rooms were spacious and it close to everything. What made this hotel a 4 star for me was the staff!!
