Great Location, Great Service, Amazing Comfortable Beds

Overall experience was excellent, the rooms are updated, beds and pillows so comfortable, location was great - in the heart of everything opposite the cheesecake factory and above macy's, customer service fantastic. My only negative point is jimmy's buffet downstairs which is not worth the money. The food selection was very scarce and below average. Would recommend

Nice stay at the Waikiki beachcomber

My wife and I had a very nice stay at the Holiday Inn Wakikik Beachcomber hotel. Although not right on Waikiki beach, it is only 300 yards away, an easy walk. We swam in the ocean every day. Our room on the 21st floor had an excellent view of the Pacific Ocean, and other parts of Waikiki. The staff was very friendly and courteous and attended promptly to our every request, including helping to arrange a tour of Pearl Harbor. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Waikiki. JS Peoria, Illinois

Cheesecake factory is a must .... Go an hour before you want to eat as there is often an hour wait. You will be given a buzzer to call you back when your table is ready

Right next to all Waikiki attractions

Staff are friendly and our room had a partial ocean view. The porters were great and it was easy to order taxis from their stand. The hotel is directly across the Cheesecake Factory and very near the Waikiki beach - great location. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Great location - right in the middle of everything

We loved this location but if you want peace and quiet away from it all, then this is not the place for you. The Beachcomber is right on the main Street and about 50 metres to the beach. You can see all from your balcony - people watching, restaurants, beach etc but you can also hear everything with the balcony door open. Hotel has great restaurants and bars and the pool is right next to the bar. Really good value for money and has everything you need. Great sized room. We would definitely return to this one. It is all about the location.
