- good location
TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Good-bad-good: Good: Location is great! Right in Waikiki and Diamondhead in sight. Numerous shops and restaurants very close. Bad: When we first got there, they put us in a tiny and umbelievably noisy room. It was like sleeping IN the elevator and RIGHT NEXT to our neighbors' TV. Would have ruined our stay on Oahu. However,... Good: ...once we talked to the front desk they immediately gave us a beautiful and quieter room and we had a wonderful time!
Careful hidden charges

Awesome location lovely staff but hidden charges the anemities cost you 17.00 a day extra on your bill. Not sure why everything can’t just b straight forward That charge was for newspaper which I never saw and shuttle service which I never used and internet we are in the middle of a medical emergency and really don’t need the surprises added to an already expensive scary time
Just the right location
The Ewa Hotel was just what I wanted. It's a budget conscious hotel near the beach, waikiki strip, the local bus and an awesome food truck (Mami's Empanadas). It is a good hotel (decor is of the 80's) with friendly staff. It's maybe not as fancy as those on the strip, however it is clean, friendly and recommended for its price point. The rooms have enough space for you to spread out, bathroom is good and beds are comfy and on site laundry at an affordable price. We opted for a kitchenette to save $$ on meals and opted to do breakfast ourselves most days using the facilities and getting supplies from ABC Store or Food Pantry. Good location at the Honolulu Zoo end of the strip.
Good value hotel.
Considering it's in Waikiki and only 5 minutes from the beach, this is a good choice for the budget conscious traveller. Yes, it's a bit dated but our room was huge and the beds comfy. The 3pm check-in time is a bit late, if like us, you had a long overnight flight.
Not the best...But a comfy bed
Run down budget hotel. Would be amazing if they put some repairs into it, and cleaned it up. I don't think I would stay here again. Our room was large, but unwelcoming.. We got one of the bigger suites on the roof and it had so much potential. Very quiet.. Almost too quiet...
