    Great view, Great price (Room #309)

    Stayed at room # 309. Extremely convenient location (108 steps to the world famous Waikiki Beach) and great Diamondhead view (non-obstructed!!) from the room balcony. And waaaay less expensive price setting than other Waikiki hotels!! We will be back for more! There was a bar downstairs ... For business travelers, stay outside of Waikiki. All Waikiki is actively noisy pretty much anywhere & anytime.

    Awesome Stay at the Waikiki Grand

    We booked this gem on VRBO. My husband & I stayed here for 8 day's & really enjoyed it. The condo was very clean & cozy , I really liked having the kitchen area to be able to make our meals because we don't like eating out everyday. They have a small staff & they're really helpful & friendly The location is great! your practically across the street from the beach on the quiet end of Waikiki . We recommend staying at the Waikiki Grand & will definitely stay here again.

    Don’t waste your time on this scam

    What a scam! I booked this hotel for 3 nights. I had missed my flight the first day so I checked in the following day only to find out that they went ahead and cancelled my reservation without any heads up or at least an email or phone call or returning my money. They basically kept my money and gave my room to someone else. Btw they charge an extra 160 upon arrival. Never heard of a hotel that charges extra fees after you book the room.

    Not so Grand.

    The hotel is not exactly as the pics on the website. Its very basic in decor, but is close to the beach and shops. I thought i was getting a balcony but apparently not and all i got is windows the did not even keep out the not so loud noises from the streets and nightclub below and sleep was a struggle. It was a pass but would pay a bit more and go somewhere else next time.

    All you need

    We stayed three nights in one of the condos. It was tiny but had everything two people could want. The location is perfect!!! Two blocks from the beach, walking distance to many restaurants and the view of Diamond Head it unbeatable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is slightly dated, but overall well kept. Would gladly stay again.
