Frustrated and disappointed

  • 1 of 5

We had visited Honolulu 8 times, and stayed at various condos each time we visited. It was a last minute reservation to pick-up my father-on-law who will be living with us in the mainland, so our resources was limited.

Waikiki Marina was the only unit available, and also by far the worst place we stayed.

The condo has 40 floors and only 1 of the elevators is working. Upon our arrival, we parked on the 3rd floor and proceeded to wait for the elevator. When it opened, there was enough room for 2 of us, but not with all our luggage. We waited for 10 minutes, same scenario. We decided to go to the lobby to catch the elevator, but was dismayed because there was a bunch of people waiting. We were tired from our trip and wanted to settle in unit & unpack, so we carried our luggage to the 26th floor, and had a feeling that this vacation wasn't going in the right direction.

The best way to catch the elevator is to wait in the lobby, not the 3rd floor where you park. Also, laundry facilities for the building consist of 2 washers and 2 dryers..figure the math.

The view is excellent, but the furnishings are old and needs to be upgraded. The water pressure was very low and shower's drain didn't work well.

I called and e-mailed Jeanie about the elevator issue, and explained that the reason for our visit was to pick-up my father-in-law to bring him to the mainland, and not really good for a 89 year old walking the stairs to catch the elevator. Jeanie was willing to assist us find another place for the next day and give a portion of the payment back.

To add fuel to the fire, there was no water in the unit when we woke up at 4 am, and didn't come back until around 8:30. We were ready to leave the unit, and I informed Jeanie that we were checking out at 10.

I sent Jeannie an e-mail to inform her of our plans and inquired about how we're going to get a portion of our refund back (we stayed for less than a day), and have not heard from her since.

Frustrated from Florida...

Great location and Jeannie was so helpful!

  • 5 of 5

We are leaving today, and I will miss our little condo here. We are celebrating our 53rd wedding anniversary, and this was a perfect place for us. We slept with the window open to the ocean breezes, and we made ourselves at home, fixing some meals in our room, and we were loving the full size refrigerator where we put water, soda,icecream, eggs, milk and fruit!

We met some of the other people who live here and/or were visiting. While the reviews about the elevator were at first concerning, we did not have problems. They were somewhat slow due to the fact that they are working on the elevators, and only one at a time working - but it was a chance to slow down, breathe deeply, meditate on all we have to be grateful for, and if others were waiting - to make a friend.

This is not walking distance to Waikiki beach (for us). It is about a mile away, and we could have walked if we wanted to. Ala Mona Bay is within walking distance across the street with a nice beach and park. One of the best things is that we rented a jeep, and the condo has it's own FREE secured parking spot. We drove all over the island - to Pearl Harbor Turtle Bay, to Laie to the Polynesian Cultural Center, to Diamond Head (where we hiked to the outlook on top), and we found a 100-foot waterfall hike only a few miles away (Moana Waterfall Hike).

The building is an older building, and the condo has older furnishings - so if you are expecting a resort experience - this is not for you. But if you want an 'at home' experience, as we did, you will love it.

Jeannie was helpful when we arrived, and answered my calls and texts immediately, which I really appreciated. We are leaving today with a lot of love in our hearts for the beautiful people and hospitality here in Hawaii.

Overall, not bad, would book again but ask to lower the price a bit.

  • 3 of 5

The condo was located in a very convenient area of town. We were within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and most importantly, the beach! If it wasn't within walking distance, it was on the bus routes. The condo itself is in need of serious updating! The bathroom and kitchen cupboards are in a little rough shape! There were spare lamps left on top of the fridge that made the room feel a little cluttered and messy! It was however clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The view of the water was beautiful and we were able to view the three fireworks displays right from our room! The elevator was painfully slow but we were made aware of that before we arrived. They are working on it and updates were posted weekly. Overall, not bad at all! We only needed a place to lay our heads! Might suggest removing one of the beds, as if there were 2 more people in our room it would have been extremely tight! Would book again but might try to lower the price a bit!

3 star stay

  • 3 of 5

This is an older building in average condition. Only 1 elevator working until 2019 so there were long waits. Extremely noisy in the room because of traffic noise from the street. There was constant loud noise from motorcycles, cars racing down the street, trucks, and sirens from police and ambulance. Also, we could hear the elevator going past our floor all the time. Sleeping was difficult but the beds were comfortable. The room is poorly maintained since it is owned by an absent owner. The furniture is old and the chairs were held together by black duct tape. The table was wobbly. The air conditioner is the old in window type, also noisy. The building is close to many restaraunts and shopping. The beach is a short walk away. I would not recommend this property to anyone who wants a quiet enjoyable vacation in Hawaii.

Convenient location + free parking

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

1. Good location - close to restaurants, Ala Moana mall and beach. On quieter side of Waikiki

2. Free parking. Hotel next to us charging $25/day

3. Hot water in apartment was awesome. Worked quickly and didn't run out.

4. Free internet/wifi - worked well and easy to set up

5. Free local phone calls

Cons

1. Elevator - worked majority of times but was slow. Took stairs sometimes, only ~ 5 minutes up. The elevators are going through "modernisation" and is expected to continue until 2019.

2. Only 1 key given to get into building

Left stranded on first night

  • 3 of 5

Left Stranded on first Night...”

Upon arriving after a 9 hour flight , we were left stranded for 3.5 hrs as Jeannie had ignored our calls to get entry into the building . Once contact was made we fought hard to get the nights accomodation reimbursed we had to shell out for . Once we were in the apartment everything was just fine a little cramped in the bathroom and noisy aircon unit but for the price it did the job . Ensure you have a door code you can enter the room with incase your stuck with the excuse of the cleaners in the apartment and make contact before you fly out.
