“Loved it!”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Just returned from 5 nights and couldn't fault this place. Staff friendly and helpful, housekeeping really attentive and the room was spotless, lovely big comfy bed, great location, nice pool deck and bar. If you can't afford a beach front, this is the next best thing. HI Beachcomber really wowed us.

I was pretty much in awe throughout my whole stay. Never been to Hawaii and so many wonderful things to do. The employees are so professional. This certain employee at the valet Garrett would always give me good advice about the places I should visit and great places to eat as well. Thanks for the tips young man you really made me feel welcomed.

Room Tip: get a room at the top its quieter..

My stay at waikiki beachcomber was amazing. We got an unbelievable deal of 3,000 for 2 weeks on expedia.com and I couldn't have found a better hotel for a better deal. We were right in the center of all the action, very close to the beach (which was packed every day so my recommendation would be to catch the bus further down on wakiki beach where there are less people). We were very close to the international marketplace and there were several malls around... cheesecake factory was RIGHT ACROSS the street! COULDN'T have been better!! but get there early as it gets packed for dinner! and forever 21 was right across the street too... which was a pleasant surprise since it's my favorite store. We ate at jimmy buffet's (right inside the hotel) for dinner and that was pretty good too, nice sized meal... their buffet breakfasts were really good too if you want to pay the money, I think it was a little pricey (as is everything in Hawaii) but worth it. there are tons of bus stops around the hotel so you can always easily get to where you want to go. The people at the front desk were always pleasant and helped me with bus routes whenever I needed it. It was a bit crowded at times, lots of people hanging out in the lobby every once and a while but it's a popular hotel apparently so it didn't bother me. Our room was always clean and quiet and we had a lanai that wasn't ocean view but you could still see a teeny bit of it off in the distance.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!!!!!!!

Its very difficult to review the Holiday Inn and not compare this hotel with the other accommodation we stayed in on Oahu which was Disneys Aulani. I will do my best to though!

I think its fair to say that this is a pretty standard Holiday Inn in what is really a pretty standard location. If you really want a sea view then don't stay here....its positioned behind the main beach front Waikiki properties.

The plus points include the corner room we had which was very large but then I paid for the upgrade. It was well maintained and there was free Wifi.

The negatives include the woeful sound dampening in the rooms. Really it was shocking and despite a premium high room you could hear everything from the street below. We were also very disappointed with the breakfast which I paid extra in my room rate for. Normally kids are included in holiday Inns but because they use the Jimmy Buffet and not their own restaurant we had to pay for our kids breakfast. It actually worked out more to book the breakfast rate than it would have to pay the normal rate and the breakfast direct to Jimmy Buffet.

I guess its best summed up by saying that we were pleased to be moving on after one night but after three nights in the Aulani we wished we could have stayed longer. Ooops...I compared them ;)

Oh and our night in the HI cost more than the Aulani!!

Room Tip: Try and get a room as high as possible...its noisy.

Aloha BournemouthFan and thank you for your comments on your recent Beachcomber stay! You're right about the street traffic as we're centrally located on Waikiki's main thoroughfare Kalakaua Avenue, but we hope you enjoyed the convenience of our proximity to the beach (only 300 steps) and all the dining, shopping and entertainment options nearby. We do pride ourselves on being an excellent value, so if you can share more details of your breakfast experience and of having paid more at the Holiday Inn than the Aulani, I'd like to understand that better so we can take better care of you should you return to Honolulu in the near future. Mahalo, Dean.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights before boarding the Pride Of America 7 day cruise. Everything about the stay was perfect. The Waikiki beach is a few steps from the front door. Great nightlife with excellent restaurants near by and the Hotel's Beachcomber restaurant and bars are good too. The closeness to the beach made walking and jogging easy. Lots of shops and bazaars near by. Hotel staff were friendly and professional. Will definitely stay here again if we are looking for a location in Waikiki.

Room Tip: Higher floors with partial ocean view are preferred.
