TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Located within walking distance from the beach. This hotel provides breakfast and it is good. I booked through booking.com and got a small room. Rooms are clean. Hotel staff members are very good and cooperative.

Everything was perfect except for the free buffet breakfast. Its the same everyday. The juice tasted like water. But everything else was good. The room was nice and near the beach and markets. The room was spacious and the people are very nice.
Value for money for Waikiki
soloflier (North Island)
Great location, within walking distances of Waikiki Strip, International Market, Hawaiian Royal Centre, central to Honolulu CBD/Waikiki. We got great service from staff at reception and maintenance, whenever needed e.g. I couldn't work out how to work my room card. We also used the car parking facility, you will have a car space allotted. The room was very basic, the photos don't show how dated the rooms are. But we were happy with them because they were spotlessly clean and were serviced every day. We had the best night's sleeps on their beds and pillows each night, air conditioning wasn't noisy for me. And there is a room next to the bathroom for make up etc. It was the best value for money at Christmas time in Waikiki. Would definitely stay here again. If you come here expecting 4 star or to look exactly as the pictures suggest e.g. brand spanking new, this isn't likely to meet your expectations if you are after fancy hotel. But if you're after value for money in Waikiki, a clean room to stay and a budget to stick to, and a laidback chill atmosphere that feels like you are at the beach, this is a great choice. We regretted that we weren't able to stay in this hotel for our entire stay in Honolulu. The one we went to after we left Aqua (Pacific Marina Inn) made us wish we had been able to stay at Aqua.
Sound hotel great locatiom

We booked a last minute trip to Oahu over Xmas week and then realized that everything was full and expensive. We were able to get a room at Aqua Aloha Surf. It is a good hotel- they have a hearty breakfast with Asian lunch food as well as good pancakes (we got tired of it after a few days). It is a great location and the service was mostly very good. They have laundry facilities in the basement, cold water in the lobby, and free movie rentals. The deluxe room was big enough for a family of four if you don’t mind a double size bed. We got the deluxe room that has a double, twin, and sofa bed. We didn’t try pulling out the sofa but it worked as a single bed. One issue was the noise outside of the hotel. For the first couple of nights we left the glass door open (prefer no a/c) but it was terribly noisy with a bar across the street as well as construction. For the rest of the time we slept with the glass door closed, and a/c on and the noise was no longer an issue. There is a nice place to walk on a canal right next to the hotel, and plenty of rental bikes nearby. Excellent, cheap food everywhere. Overall, a great stay! Room has a microwave and mini fridge.

The first morning I was there I was awoken by heavy construction noise on the 'beach' side of the hotel (203). I would not rent this room to a deaf person! Maybe if you're an early riser it would be fine. Room 313 was bigger and quiet!
