|Castle Pacific Marina Inn Airport Hotel
This hotel has 119 air-conditioned
guestrooms on three floors, with exterior corridors and no
elevators. Rooms have one queen bed or two twin beds and cable TV.
Bathrooms have showers only. Free parking and a complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle service are
available for all guests. We have stayed
at this hotel several times. It is very plain and basic, but
it's the least expensive place we've found when all we need is a
place to sleep overnight between plane connections. Although
we've never encountered a problem, the hotel's "restaurant" seems
more like a nightclub with a lot of locals drinking and enjoying themselves.
A little higher priced, but nicer hotel close to the airport, is the
Best Western The Plaza Hotel listed below.
2628 Waiwai Loop, Honolulu
nice, clean budget hotel with small rooms located two blocks from Waikiki

satisfied. 3253 N. Nimitz Highway, Honolulu.

renovated 620 room hotel is located a long block from Waikiki Beach.

Radisson hotels and this appears to be a good value
for the money.

Less than one block from Waikiki Beach, this hotel offers casual,
relaxed surroundings in the heart of Waikiki. Staying here gives
you easy beach access at less than beachfront prices. There

We found staying at this hotel a very enjoyable experience and a good
value for your money.

|| Outrigger's flagship hotel
is located oceanfront on Waikiki Beach. Waikiki
beach near the hotel tends to be very crowded, but if you want to be
at the center of Waikiki, you can stay here. 2335 Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu
||$239 - $359
Hawaiian Village is probably our favorite place to stay in
Honolulu. For us it is a true resort, because we can stay there
three or four days and never feel like straying more than a block or two
away. There are restaurants, shopping, and it is located on Waikiki's best
beach. 2005 Kalia Road, Honolulu
||$293 - $392
the Turtle Bay Hilton Resort) This is the only
hotel/resort on Oahu's North Shore and recently completed a $40
million renovation. This beach front resort is located about an
hour's drive from Honolulu and every room has an ocean view. We go there when we want to "get away from it all" on Oahu.
We love the hotel's location, and we always receive prompt and
friendly service. You will need to rent a car if you're
staying here, unless you want to spend the entire time at the
resort. We recommend the resort if you want to get away from the hustle and
bustle of Waikiki without going to a neighbor island. 57-091 Kamehameha Highway,
with over two-thirds of the rooms directly facing the ocean.
There is no beach directly in front of the hotel, but it is a very
short walk on either side of the hotel. Waikiki beach near the
hotel tends to be very crowded. Outrigger canoe rides, surfing
lessons, and catamaran rides are available. The Hanohano Room
on the top floor is our favorite restaurant on Oahu. 2255

two center units offer unobstructed views of the ocean
from the very large lanai, the living room, and the master
bedroom. 2470 Kalakaua Avenue,
