Ohana Maile Sky Court (formerly the Outrigger Maile Sky Court). This is a budget hotel that doesn't feel like a budget hotel. It is one of the taller hotels in Waikiki. It's location is convenient because it's right at the 'entry' to Waikiki, so you don't have to deal with a lot of the traffic. It's near the Ala Wai Blvd, so it's relatively easy to get out of Waikiki, too, when you want to travel. There's a large parking garage in the hotel, so you don't have to worry about parking (which is a big thing on the island). And if you want to spluge, they have some really nice one-bedroom and one-bedroom deluxe rooms that go for about the same price as single rooms in some of the other hotels. For the money, you get a lot of room to spread out in, a kitchen area to help keep the cost of meals down, and some privacy if you're traveling with kids. It isn't luxurious, but it's clean, well located, functional, and it has a lot of the amenities that you are looking for.....all at a price that's significantly less than many of the other hotels in the area.
As little as $75 per night for a single room, and $140 a night for a one-bedroom suite.
The lobby is totally open to the street, and there is a sitting area next to an artifical pond that makes a great place to sit and plan out your day. It has all the amenities of the larger hotels, but the price is much better. Check out the prices for the suites; they're actually affordable if you want to splurge a little bit. This hotel offers lots of discounts (AAA, military, corporate, etc., so don't be afraid to ask; it makes the stay even LESS expensive!).
Best Western Outrigger
Look for supersaver specials. (ext. $70-$90) a night depending a season.
This hotel offers a great value. Located in a great location and is only two blocks from Wakiki Beach and a couple of blocks from the International Market Place.
If your looking for a hotel on the Ocean, this is not it. However, if you looking for a good location and to save money, look into this hotel.
my brother and I stayed at the Aloha surf.. we got a corner room on the 18th floor and had a balcony to lookout over most of downtown honolulu! theres a parking garage, and breakfast, we had a good value at $65 per nite... but it was basic a good home base though..4 blocks from the beach
the picture. Spotted about high atop dry hills are the remains of shore batteries, (long range cannons) which were made hurriedly after December 7, 1941, the guns long since removed but leaving a stark and vivid reminder of the fears under which we all lived.
Since VT has gone to a new format, there is little point in my revisiting this area. Nothing on the VT site replaces a diligent search.
Many of you will go to Honolulu on a package tour where your hotel will be part of the package. That is a practical and good way to start. Returning tourists who decide to go it alone still have to decide on their accommodations. By then, they will have seen a few of the better hotels and may decide for themselves.
Those who wish to have a real experience in Island living will opt for a bed and breakfast. This is a growing market worth exploring. Most of these will be far away from Waikiki.
If you have a large group, consider a condominium. These may prove to be a good value and are plentiful. If there are just two of you, not looking for anything fancy in an excellent Waikiki location, contact me.
We have been customers of a lady who owns several studio units in a hotel that is one block from the beach, across the street from the Honolulu Zoo. Her units range from Low to Lower. $30.00 to $70.00 per day, all equipped with kitchens, pots and pans, TV, VCR, walking distance to anything, all buses to your front door.
Larger units will accommodate 4, but all are best suited to two. Some have views of the beach and the mountains. None are deluxe.
$50.00 per night to $70.00. Modest cleaning fee and refundable security fee. Parking available for a fee. That is standard in most Waikiki facilities. And that, by the way is $50 to $70 for the unit, NOT per person.
