Only one night, which was good. Given a room in the new, old wing of the hotel. Musty and small, more like a glorified Motel 6. Service was adequate. Highest resort fee ever paid, $30.00, with the least return. Only used the wi-fi. This is ridiculous. Hotels wonder why people are seeking vacation rental options. Moved to another hotel that...

Aloha chasbuit, Mahalo for taking the time to share your experience during your recent stay at the Moana Surfrider. We are disappointed to learn that we were unable to exceed your expectations on your last stay at the Moana.

My colleague and I stayed here on a government business trip (I know, tough right?) We booked the rooms under the "government rate" which is all we're permitted to get reimbursed for. If you're unfamiliar, the government negotiates flat rates for all locations, and that's what hotels are supposed to charge. Upon checkout, we discovered that this hotel was charging...

Thanks to all at Moana Surfrider for your wonderful hospitality during our recent stay. We arrived early after a long haul flight and were offered a room to freshen up in as we waited for our room to be ready. When we went to our room we did not have a balcony as requested, but the staff at the front...

This was our 4th time here. We have stayed in other hotels around but keep coming back here. It has been so beautifully restored and taken care of it makes the holiday more special than just staying in a boring hotel room. We love staying in the cheaper banyan wing because of the old feel (but modern) rooms. Having cocktails...

At a time when everything seemed booked, we managed to get an ocean view room at this classic hotel. Full-disclosure, we LOVE old grande dame hotels like this, and are fully prepared and even enjoy their quirks.

This was our second stay at the Grand Lady of Waikiki, but we had requested rooms in the tower section, as the rooms in the old section we had last time were minuscule, with one queen bed, and very little room for anything else. Also, not at all soundproof, and as there were up to 7 weddings a day happening...

If you want to stay among the hustle and bustle, this is a beautiful hotel in Waikiki. We were pleased with the quality of the room and bathroom- all spotless and feeling fresh. The beach area and pool are very nice but super crowded and not easy to get a seat unless you want to pay for premium seating. The...
