I can not express enough how absolutely WONDERFUL the staff is. My fiancé and I are staying with the hotel as we settle into moving to Hawaii. The staff were so accommodating and made us feel like family and not like just another customer they are making money off of. Doug, Edsu and Michelle, literally take customer service to a...

The Ewa doesn't have a pool, a exercise room, or any of the upgraded facilities, but it's the best hotel I've ever stayed at! I've traveled all over Europe and the US and have stayed at some extremely nice hotels, and some dumps. I came to Waikiki and had booked the Ewa through the internet. The rooms are exceptionally clean,...

We have stayed at many hotels here in Hawaii and the Ewa Hotel is by far one of the best. Why? Excellent customer service, housekeeping, and great location within a reasonable price. Michelle, Tracey, Etsu, and Douglas rock the place. Thank you for everything that you do! :)

Stayed at the Ewa for a few days. Location is good, close to Waikiki. The hotel is older & could use some TLC, but the staff were super friendly. I would come back to stay with this hotel if I came alone again. I'm not that fussy so it may depend on who I travel with again

This is a budget hotel. Rooms were spacious and it close to everything. What made this hotel a 4 star for me was the staff!! The front line staff were fabulous - Michelle, Tracey, Etzu (sp?) were so great to deal with and helped in any way they could. Anytime we requested anything, we received it very quickly. I am...

Whilst the motel is only 6 levels high nestled amongst towers, it is a terrific, affordable option. The room was 30 sq m, large for Hawaii, had a kitchenette (2 burner stove, saucepans, frypan, egg flip, coffeemaker, microwave), good size toilet/bathroom, large TV, 2 queen beds, table & 2 chairs, armchair plus a small balcony with 2 chairs & small...

There is a resort fee of about 14.00 per day, that fee includes WiFi, use of the in room safe, and a few other things that seem a little nonsensical. Parking on website says $15 per day, but front desk says $25 per night. Bed was comfy, but our room 315 was awkward. Very small. Granted we were only in...

We weren't expecting much when booking a room at the Ewa Hotel in Waikiki but was pleasantly surprised after checking in . The room was super clean and included a kitchenette. Location was perfect for all the tourist things in Waikiki. Lots of really good restaurants close by. We would definitely stay at this Budget friendly Hotel again.
