Profile: Waikiki

Waikiki, just southeast from Honolulu’s downtown, is where you’ll find the palm-shaded sands and blue waters of some of Honolulu’s most popular beaches—like famous Waikiki Beach and Fort DeRussy Beach. Walk along Kalakaua Avenue and find mouthwatering food and luxurious goods from top brands like Louis Vuitton.

For a day filled with family fun, Kapiolani Park is your gateway. This is where you can see live musical performances at the Waikiki Shell Amphitheater—or visit an amazing array of wildlife at the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium.

    What you get is what you see. Charming hotel. The aesthetic is retro funky. Excellent hidden treasure for the price. My only complaint is the tiny step up shower!

    There are definitely different quirks that I’ve never experienced in another hotel. 1 it costs $25 to have room service clean your room. But after a couple of days I found out I liked it. I’m a neat person who cleans up after myself and the privacy was nice. 2 you have to turn in your dirty bathroom towels to get clean ones. Really? 3 you have to ask for soap and shampoo. You are given one small bar of soap and one of shampoo. The pool area is so charming. The staff is kind and friendly. Every person who works there went out of their way to make you feel welcome. And not in a forced way but really glad to help. It was old and the rooms needed work. Especially the bathroom that had a 12 inch step up to get in the shower and a 12 inch step down to get out. Kind of dangerous. And we were on the 3rd floor and there’s no elevator. But it’s very clean so it made up for all of that. We loved it. Thought it was charming in a city of high raise box hotels.

    The hotel setting is incredibly beautiful, with palms, a small pool, a hot tub and a waterfall, but even more incredible than the building and grounds is the friendly, accommodating staff. There was not a need that they couldn’t meet, and they greeted us each and every time with a smile and an aloha. We loved the White Sands and can’t wait to stay there again!

    White Sands Hotel gave us a relaxing experience. The hotel has a convenient coffee bar, clean pool, and consistently well prepared drinks at the bar. Our room was comfortable, quiet, and clean. The staff was friendly and prompt.

  • 6.0.Good

    Motel has been recently renovated into a lovely mid-century look with a great vibe. Room and bed were comfortable, and balcony overlooking pool was useful and fun. Room had a kitchen counter with sink and microwave. However, not a paper towel to be found, nor eating utensils, plates, etc,requiring one to haul in more disposables to throw away and clog the landfill. Area of town offers a mixed review in that distance from chaotic scene of Waikiki offers a nice buffer, however specific location is on a side street that’s a bit sketchy. Parking is almost non-existent; maybe the lot will hold 12-15 cars but so small it makes navigating in-out a challenge. Management and front desk staff very friendly and adept at problem resolution.

    The center courtyard with pool, spa, and tropical plants was lovely. The king bed was very comfortable. The parking lot spaces were tight. The shower in our room was hard to get in and out of because it had a high step and no grab bars. We would stay here again. Close to shopping and restaurants.
