Nice hotel

The hotel was in a good location and was clean but the size of the room was small. Also the noise level was high due to the location

perfect location

Excellent location, just in the heart of Waikiki best area. The pianist player at the lobby is fantastic. The atmosphere f the hotel is great, it is like leaving the past with the Lexus of the present. However the pool is not well maintain and the area on the beach is almost limited.

Overall, great place

This was a great experience. The only negative aspect was how my friend and I were treated once they knew we booked through a 3rd party travel agency/package deal. They saw that we were young (and assumed we had no money) and in combination with the package deal listed by our name, and gave us the smallest, hidden away room possible. But was still a nice place.

Street food vendors come out on Thursday in the international market. Inexpensive, home made food!

A mix of good and bad

Overall, a good stay. Great to be right on the beach. But the accommodations were not worth the price. Many of the staff were very friendly. But a few were especially rude - except toward singer Bobby Brown and his family, who were there for Brown's wedding.

Unsurpassed Location, Very Good Hotel

The Moana Surfrider is a historically significant hotel, and by staying here you are following the footsteps of more than 100 years of visitors to Waikiki. As it is an older property, the rooms are somewhat smaller in area, and you can here sounds from the hallway through the doors. But, the rooms themselves are excellent an everything is new and clean since the 2007 renovation.

Banyan tree in the courtyard has a long and interesting history, you can check out a historical exhibit on the second floor of the lobby area.

Lives up to it's reputation as the Grand Lady of Waikiki

This was my third stay at the Moana. The Moana is a historical hotel with the best location in Waikiki. Service this year was excellent and much improved from past stays. Do your homework and decide what you are looking for. This is not a huge multi-tower conglomerate with a shopping center. It suits the discerning traveler who appreciates it's old world charm along with fine dining and great beach acess.

Dining tip: In Hotel

There are times when the Moana offers it's breakfast buffet complimentary on upgrades. It is oh so worth doing the upgrade for it alone. Really enjoyed the quality, quantity, and service and the view from the veranda can make anyone's day.

Don't stay on street side

Everything about the hotel was great - if you have a choice, don't stay on the street side as it's loud at night and early morning. If you're looking for a hotel with a large pool for the kids - this is not the place. Hotel is mostly adults.

Not Worth the Cost

The rooms was tiny. Location on the beach is good and the huge banyan tree is beautiful. But, staying just about anywhere else would have been a much better value.

Moana Surfrider

Free parking across the street. Valet parking is also available for $15/day. Perfect location at the oldest hotel on Waikiki and yet it has been thoroughly modernized. As part of a 4 hotel complex in that area, plenty of opportunities for dining and the shopping in the area is the best!

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Take one of the express busses for $2 person to the Ala Moana shopping center for great food and shopping. Lots of designer shops and malls within walking distance.
