Like location, didn't like noise.

The property is central to restaurants, the beach, stores, bus stops, and the highway. My room was large and clean. Though I did not cook, it also had a full functional kitchen, which allowed me to store left over food and to chill water in the fridge. The daily service was excellent. The tv had lots of channels but I did not watch tv.

Reasonably priced

Wonderful staff and the room was very clean, spacious, and well equipped!

Great place to date enjoyed myself

Everything was excellent except the little wood bugs in the kitchen,

The staff was friendly, the room was clean and well maintained. The parking lot was easy to get in and out of

We really enjoyed our stay at Ilima hotel. The room was massive, and clean. The sheets and towels were so crisp I felt like a freshly swaddled baby. We loved the hotel soap?!! I was going to preach to my daughter over the lack of quality hotel soaps offer, I’m glad I held my tongue. It was one of our more satisfying experiences, bathing. The porcelain tub was long, so we really enjoyed being able to stretch out. We all took near hour long baths, the hot water blazes, so be careful. The hotel was definitely worth the price range, well below resort style hotels and we were still really close to Paia Fish market one of our favorite hangs, and Nordy Rack. Dukes Lane and the squishable store are close by, too. so walking around Waikiki is very accessible, but hearing the city noise is not an issue. our room felt sound proof from street ruckus and sirens, with window closed and AC on, such a good nights sleep. My only issue was carpet, it was clean and looked well cared for, but carpet can make me feel dirty and I know it’s more likely psychological than the premise keepers neglect, but caution to the wind, knowing this hotel is an oldie but goody! ps, they have a parking garage included with the price which made this a stand out purchase. So it’s a consideration if you’re with a vehicle, a lot of hotels list the parking amenity with a 35$/night fee, and that leaps your budget back up to resort prices, which may include parking, if your trying to travel with frugality in mind.

It's obvious that the owner(s) worked to update the hotel. The room, however, was not fully updated. You can tell it's an OLD place. Everything we needed was available, but the $109 charge for amenities is steep for what is supplied. We did enjoy the balcony.

The room is big, clean and comfortable. All staff were very friendly. I would recommend the hotel to my friends.

Parking on premises was really appreciated. Also, staff was very prompt and courteous.

Like it nice clean great location and it was what we expected !

Excellent location great staff great value free parking ex

We stayed in Room 1401. The square footage is awesome. The view is spectacular - especially at night. The beds are comfortable. The location of the hotel is marvelous. We were happy guests.

Pros: location (short walk to Duke's Lane), free parking, kitchen, self-serve laundry with laundry basket, two suitcase holders,nice staff, good value. Cons: parking stalls small and too few, shower stream weak, air conditioner a bit loud, an "emergency" forced us out of bed and down seven flights of stairs at 3:00AM one night.

Close to everything, but quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was comfortable and kitchen was indespensible. Onsite parking was a huge plus. Since our stay was lengthy, the laundry was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Nice hotel, big comfy room, staff were ok, didn’t get a parking spot one night so that was a bummer.

Good value for money. Great staff. Free parking which is a bonus in Waikiki.
