This morning I flew from The Big Island of Hawai'i to the smaller Hawaiian island of Oahu (I didn't actually fly by flapping my arms - I got on a plane and it flew), and I am in a cheap and cheerful motel a minute from Waikiki Beach. As much as I feel drawn to whipping up a nutritious meal on the rusty two-ring Baby Belling that adorns a corner of …
Ever get the feeling you're living the same day over again? Since crossing over the international date line, I've had two December 17th's... I'm so used to being 'ahead' of everybody, now I'll have to get used to lagging behind! On the flight over, something very rare happened: I got an entire 3 seats to myself. The rest of the plane was full to …

TravelPod Member ReviewsWaikiki Prince Honolulu
Yes its noisy but it is Downtown Waikiki. VERY near the beach and I doubt you would find anything this cheap. Its clean and serviceable. Internet is fast and everything works. It won't win any style awards but it does the job and the desk staff are friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Waikiki Prince Honolulu
I spent the New Year's here with my sister-in-law and I would return in a second! For $75 US a night, we got a spotless room/bathroom with kitchenette that had two double beds. I didn't want to waste my hard-earned money on motel rooms but I did want clean rooms which I received. The "downside" is having to return any dirty towels to the front desk in order to receive clean ones, having no maid service unless you stay there at least 6 consecutive days, and bringing your trash down to the waste bins. Since that kind of thing doesn't bother me in the least, I was able to save money which I would rather use on visiting the sites, shows, and some nice dinners out. Odie and Rose are both lovely people to talk with; they answered all my questions and made me feel like they were family. I was able to do all my laundry there and parked my car across the street since they only have 5 available parking sites. I would recommend those sleep eyewear thingies since the curtain does not keep out the early morning sun. I will return here and will try the small or smallest room next time [around 40-50 US dollars.]
I have stayed in this hotel twice; May 2004 & Feb 2001. I'm sure I will be coming back to this hotel SOON! Here are some reasons why Waikiki Prince is the BEST!!
Location, Value, Value
Cheap, clean, cheap, friendly and cheap. Don't expect much (no shampoo, no hair dryer) except decent sleeps. You may need to hang a bed spread over the curtain to help block street lights. Kitchenette rooms have gas stove, fridge, microwave, sink, dishes, etc. which could save you alot if you are staying for a while. A huge step up from a hostel for reasonable $$$. Two short blocks from beach. Don't expect taxi driver to know where where it is (ours didn't). Most people take TheBus or a shuttle.
Great value for the dollar
As part of Alyson and Malcolm's round the world trip, we found the Waikiki Prince Hotel accommodation, as good as any where else in the world for great economic value,comfort, convenience and friendly service.
Spend the extra money and find something better
While the management is incredibly nice, the hotel is very shabby (dirty, paint chipping) sad elevator and the rooms remind me of state college dorm rooms. There's no phones in the rooms. The room was supposed to be non-smoking but smelled bad of it. If you are even slightly upscale minded, I would spend the extra money to go on priceline and bid for a 3 or 4 star hotel. If you stay in hostels on a super cheap budget, then this might be okay.
What a great bargain
Based on reviews on tripadvisor, I booked this hotel for my short stay near Waikiki beach and i did not regret one moment at all. The pluses are many: VERY CLEAN rooms with basic stuff including tv and microwave, central location( two blocks from the waikiki beach) and a view of the ocean from the 6th floor, a very informative and friendly manager and best of all $40 for the smallest rooms, it is a steal. In fact, my wife and I had breakfast from the balcony with a view. The flip side, I would consider it minor, is the small rooms ( we stayed in the smallest room, but they have bigger rooms too) but hey for $40/night in waikki right next to the Hyatt I would go for it.
this hotel is about a block away from the beach. i got a small room for 40 bucks a night. it was clean and comfortable with a little porch. the room isn't fancy but it is fuctional. it has a great location and friendly staff. highly recomended for the budget conscious traveler.
Wonderful stay. A long walk to Waikiki, but quiet. Nice staff. A bit expensive. Very clean and nice furnishings. Large rooms.
Great Deal in Waikiki!!
An Outstanding Deal!!! For only around $50 per night you can have a hotel room right in the middle of Waikiki. While some might be worried about staying in a cheaper hotel, I can assure you that the Waikiki prince has very clean and well kept rooms. The manager is very reasonable and helpful. If you're just looking for a place to stay while enjoying your vacation on Oahu, the Waikiki Prince is a great bargain. I stayed in the smallest room availiable and I was satisfied.
Im sure that you will be as well.
As a visitor to the Hawaiian Islands 18 times I am highly qualified to know whats a good deal from Kauai to Molokai to the Big Island.There is NO better place to stay for the price,location and the EXCELLENT service than the Waikiki Prince Hotel on Prince Edward Street in Honolulu and Waikiki!It's a smaller hotel and the rooms are'nt huge but it's extremely clean and comfortable and it's only a block or 2 from Kuhio beach by the Hyatt Regency and the Duke Kahanamoku statue by the police station.Ode,the manager is one of the nicest people and sincere people on the planet and gives true meaning to the word Aloha!Rooms are usually between $45 and $80 per night and if you stay a week the seventh night is usually free!The personable manager,location and price make this my personal favorite place to stay in the entire islands and I've been to them ALL!Delan
