431 Nohonani St, Waikiki

NOTE: This property is undergoing renovations until early October 2018. The pool will be closed from June 13th through September 12th. The hotel will remain open with work confined to hours of 9 a.m to 5 p.m. We will be back to take a look when they have finished.

This property has three low-rise, walk-up buildings built in 1965 that surround a courtyard and pool. It’s similar in style to its next door neighbor, the Hawaiian King. This property targets budget travelers (but without budget pricing).

The kitchenettes simply add two burners to the microwave, coffee maker and fridge in rooms. Lanais either face the pool (preferable) or face the city (noisy). Rooms are pretty small and feel dated and very overpriced for what you get (though discounts can be easily had). The best features of the hotel are the friendly staff and pool courtyard, which is quite pretty and full of native plants. Bathrooms have showers only—no tubs. It’s two long blocks to the beach. This property was scheduled for room upgrades at press time.

Rooms (316 sq. ft.) are $245, rooms with kitchenettes (316 sq. ft.) are $250–$280, 1/1s (480 sq. ft.) are $480. Hope you got a much better deal than that.

“Just wanted to say that my girlfriend and I are about to go on our first trip to Oahu and we have found your book to be an amazing guide. I have read several other books doing research for our trip and your book is awesome. We love your honesty and have made reservations with several of the activities companies and restaurants listed in your book. The maps are wonderful and we enjoyed your writing style as well :). Ok, just wanted to say super book, it has been a great help in planning our trip and will be a great help to us on the island.”
