Double (two persons two beds), standard room is US$91.00 (high season).
This is a two-story bungalow hotel that captures the ambience of Waikiki of the 1950s before everything really went high rise. The staff has been around probably since Statehood! It is a block and a half from the beach and, although in the middle of the action, not too noisy. There is a pool, but it seems largely redundant. It is owned by the Urasenke Foundation, which is the largest international organisation for cha-no-yu (Japanese tea ceremony). The headmaster comes to Hawai'i often; there are international types around there all the time. This location is definitely for gregarious types.
No pool or view, but located in a beautiful garden- like setting featuring a short trail along a wooded creek. Free coffee,local fruit and homemade banana bread in the morning. But most of all, a wonderfully friendly and helpful staff!
In Kauai we stayed at the Coconut Beach Resort. It wasn't very fancy - more spring break like - a little rundown, however very affordable - $70/night off the internet.
In Maui we stayed at the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa, the grounds were beautiful and the room was fabulous - the bathroom was huge! However, the staff wasn't very friendly and I know this sounds strange, but the maid carts rolling past our room on the tile sounded like a locomotive was passing each morning around 8:00 a.m. and kept waking us up. Not sure if I would stay there again.
One night stay at Coconut Beach was $70. The Grand Wailea was an incentive trip, so not sure. However, I know it was top of the line.
Coconut Beach is on the beach, however you can't really swim there.
Grand Wailea has beautiful grounds and the beach is nice.
actually. I stayed at my sister's property. She has a couple of houses on it. she is building another so that she can rent them out to people visiting the island, a sort of bed and breakfast in the 'up country'.
The Orchid resort. Fabulous, not too big. Very elegant, and hosts a variety of activities, restaurants, and has a gorgeous view.
Sorry, it was expensive, I know that, but not out of the ordinary, considering the location and offerings. This was an all-expenses-paid business bonus for my husband. We have often said that it would be well worth spending our own money to go back to the exact hotel/resort.
Excellent spa facilities and the massage is well worth the price! You can even have one outside, right on the beach...just fabulous.
We stayed at the Radisson Kuai Beach Resort. Our view of the ocean made me happy but the Mai Tai happy hour made me even happier.
We stayed in Hanalei Bay at Tutu's a small cottage a block from the beach. and a block from most restaurants in Hanalei. Also on the big Island The Kilauea Lodge with it's own restaurant a great place.
The Kilauea Lodge has it's own restaurant which is one of the islands best. It has a great island feel about it and the food is excellent. The chef is also the owner. The lodge is close to the Kilauea Volcano which is a unique experience.
Poipu Kapili Bungalows, 2221 Kapili Road, Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii - not cheap but much better than all the surrounding Hotels

We loved the Sheraton Moana Surfrider on Kalakalua Avenue in Honolulu.
Join Starwood preferred guest program and you get a great discount on the room and they give you a huge discount on restaurant charges charged to your room.
Old fashioned porch wraps around with white rocking chairs, wonderful free hawaiian entertainment at night in the back, Great bbq on the beach near the pool, high tea in the afternoon, I could go on and on.
1) When visiting Maui the Hyatt Regency is amazing. There are beautiful pools with slides and waterfalls that over look the beach.
2) When visiting Oahu the Hilton Hawaiian Village is the only place to be. There is a lagoon or a variety of pools you can sun bath in.
3) When visiting the big Island you have to stay at Wiakola Village in Kona. This hotel is the most amazing hotel I have ever been to. You do not have to leave the hotel for anything. There is a boat that you take throughout the hotel. You can also swim with dolphins.
Banana Bungalows in Waikiki is a good hostel. Only a few blocks from Waikiki beach. Clean rooms , some with ocean views.....its got a bar, always useful, and does cheap food and it has good tour bookings and an internet cafe and an attached supermarket! all that you'd expect from a Bananas hostel!

Either a condo at Princeville (very reasonable), or Hanalei Colony Resort in Hanelei itself. Both are fabulous, and include housekeeping service!!!
Well - in 1983, the Colony ran $77/night for a two bedroom with a kitchen. In 1978, Princeville was only a little more than that. Princeville has all ranges of prices though - from medium to pricey.
Prices are still great from what I have seen. The highest cost in Kauai is getting there from the mainland! We like peace and quiet, and a homey atmosphere. For more activity, go to the Coco Palms in Lihue.
