We like staying at Pacific Marina for two main reasons: the free and closely accessible parking (if you can get one), which makes it easy to go back to your car to retrieve things or run out in a hurry; and the bar downstairs. The pool area is also nice and, since we frequent Oʻahu, the location is very convenient for to most the places we end up going to. But the rooms are hit or miss as far as cleanliness and comfort. For this last trip, our bed was extremely uncomfortable. Just hard like every spring is just done. My husband and I had sore backs every morning. Time to throw out these mattresses. (Oh, and pretty much every “Queen” size bed we’ve had there was not a Queen, they were Full-size mattresses.) I don’t know if this hotel is going to be affected by the rail system coming through—like if they have to close down because they are in the path—and that’s why the rooms aren’t being changed out, upgraded, or given on super good cleaning/painting head to toe. If that’s what is happening, then I understand and will keep staying there while it’s still around. But if they are staying, I hope they do some major cleanup and upgrades soon. There should be some investment into the hotel for the good of their guest, especially the retiring ones.

The only reason we stayed here was its closeness to the airport and it suited that purpose.

Stayed late February for the one night.

Rang for the free shuttle from the airport to be picked up, gave location details and around 30 minutes later we were picked up.

The inn is old, the room was old, the bed is old, the entire facility is old.

Noise both inside room and out is loud.

An old air conditioner tried hard to keep the room cool, but due to noise we had to turn this off. Even with ear plugs in, the noise from outside and other air conditioners near by still impacted sleep.

Our third floor room overlooked the pool. the noise from the people in the pool went well into the night.

Our room had a musty smell.

The over bath tub shower was hot and good pressure.

The food at the Chinese Restaurant within the premises was good, tasty and hot.

Would not recommend, and would not stay here again.

Stayed at the property because of its close proximity to the airport, and so called value pricing. When I arrived at 2pm, to check in, the front desk did a great job in expediting housekeeping, so that I could check in earlier then the normal 3pm check in. I also found the housekeeping staff to be very polite and friendly.

The room was clean, and simple. The air conditioner was loud, but cold, and I noticed they switched their soaps, lotions and shampoos, all to secured bottles, so you can no longer take home the personal size items.

Late at night, and early morning, I found the reverse warnings on trucks outside, extremely loud, even thought I was on the third floor.

The final day of my stay, I had to wake up at 3am, to attend an event, so went to take a shower. After waiting 10 minutes for the water to get hot, or maybe a little warm, I ended up taking a cold shower. Not quite how I wanted my day to start.

Then when I went to check out, I approached the front desk, at 330am, and one older gentlemen was looking at some papers, while a female employee look at me from the back room, but never approached to see if she could help. After a few minutes of waiting, the male then asked if I needed help. I was disappointed that no one made any attempt to acknowledge or help me for at least a few mintes.

We booked one night here since it had free shuttle service from airport and we needed to stay close by to return to pick up our car rental the next morning since we got in so late and didn’t want to spend on the extra day for the car and hotel we were staying at the rest of the stay. I wouldn’t do it again. First off, they said shuttle would get to us in 7-10 min, and it took 39 min after calling twice after booking. When we arrived their store was closed, and they didn’t even have water to offer. The shuttle driver did offer to stop at the gas station on the way since it was closed, but it was 10pm so we weren’t hungry and I figured they would at least have a vending machine or water. They didn’t. I asked multiple times at check in if they had a water they could just sell me or give because I was thirsty and there was no other options, but to no avail. Our room was horrible. So horrible that we didn’t even want to shower or get out of our airport clothes and just slept in them until the morning. The bedroom says two twins, but it was definitely two single beds. And the gap between the door and ground made us fearful of roaches or any other outside bugs coming in. So we used part of the bed covering to put between it and hopefully help us. As well as sleep with the light on to keep the bugs out. Oh, also at check in this is small, but it said pay $13 at resort (as we booked through orbitz) and the fee was $14.95. They charged tax on it. I wouldn’t have mentioned as I thought that was weird but maybe the norm. When we got to our other hotel the next day, there was no tax and priced as is. So I thought it was worth the mention. Nothing around here but an industrial area. No good food. Store has limited items and ONLY Dasani water for sale, when we went in the next morning for purchases.

Don’t book! Not even worth the cheap price.

The loudest and coldest air conditioning in the world, it felt like at the time. Had the worst sleep because of it. So noisy and I can normally tolerate air conditioning machines in hotels. But this was on another level...like enter your dreams level.

The other thing we were concerned about - not sure if the swimming pool water is treated so that it is safe and clean to swim in. A swimming pool should be treated or chlorinated to prevent the spread of waterborne illnesses and skin infections from harmful bacteria in the water. Something to ask about before you go for a swim in the pool. The cleanliness score we give here does not apply to the swimming pool because we did not know whether it was treated and safe and clean for swimming. But plenty of guests swam in it.

Great if you are stuck at the airport or have an early flight and don't want to pay the typical high Hawaii prices. The shuttle and the fact that they have some food items and other stuff in a little 24 hour store helps a lot if you have no car. Just wish they offered Alcohol..... because closest was over a mile each way.

Pros is that it is close to the airport and the base. If you go on the backside of the hotel there are tennis courts and soccer field that is nice. Cons are that is not worth the price and parking was a nightmare. Looked like in the middle of an industrial area. While i stayed they had a TV shooting of a television show and they closed off parking to paying guest and did not make arrangements for parking in another area. Rooms are small but the service was great and I did not like paying in advance. usually only cheap motels insist on payment in advance. I stayed for a week and was required to pay in advance. Should set running of your card like rent a car companies do and charging when you leave. The housekeepers were awesome and I forgot my key in the room and the housekeeper was not allowed to open my room. Surprised to find the hotel in what looked like an industrial area.

We didn't stay with you. We cancelled 12/4/19 via phone call to 808-836-1131. Cancel confirm # 120 492 9378.

Then we also talked to Kahti on 1/10 after getting another email. She said yes, it was cancelled with confirmation # 011011511 for reservation # 135299.

You keep sending us emails that we are staying or stayed with you, which sounds like you want to charge us. You are harassing us!!!

We did a day-stay at this property after a cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. It was a wonderful way to end our vacation. All of the staff, especially Front Desk attendant Gino demonstrated the epitome of Hawaiian hospitality. Gino accommodated every wish of our large traveling group. We spent time in the sun, hanging by the pool, reading and playing cards. Very relaxing. The reception shop is well appointed and stocked, there is a bar and restaurant on property, and coffee and tea are available 24 x 7. While we didn't use it, the fire pit is a really nice touch. Then Gino arranged for airport transportation for our group which ended the day in a great way. Rooms are dated, but very well kept. This is a hidden gem for a day adventure after getting off an active ship. Certainly one to give some consideration to! And the price was definitely right!

This place has the worst customer service workers I've ever had to deal with at a hotel. First this is my second time staying and I should have known better. So the first time I had stayed I was charged 300 dollars for a TV that was already broken . Now this time my mother in law checkcked in on the 4th and I paid for the room through Priceline now we get there my mother in law checks in and is told there is a deposit of 250 plus 185. In resort fees. The deposit had to go on her card because mine was a virtual card and couldn't be verified. We checked in at night noting that we had a cat. The next day I'm told I have to pay 40 dollars a day cat fee that I assumed was already paid. I asked if my card could be used the guy said no. So I ran all over trying to get the cash. . Paid and all is well. We decided to extend our stay because hey it's cheap and I have no where else at this time. When I rebook I'm told by the manager and I quote " Well we were not even going to rent to you again because last time you left a nasty review". No I left an honest o e. She goes on to say if I promise to write a good review she will let us stay. However we need to pay the resort fees and pet fees in cash because my card can not be verified. Now I'm crying literally begging but no so I beg, borrow and finally come up with the cash in the meantime they would not let my husband with my cat back into the room that mind you was already paid for. I just had to pay resort and pet fee the nightly rate was already taken. So at the end of our stay I wash pillow cases and sheets and make sure everything is clean and good because last time I had to pay 20 dollars for a spot on a towel. We check out and they proceed to tell me they are charging my card 250 because we didn't tell them we had a cat. Ummm I paid pet fees the first night I didn't but not my fault my mother in law stood right at the desk and told the lady we had a cat. So I look at the fine print it says pets welcome MAY be an additional charge so the lady the first night messed up not my problem and then you charged a card you told me could not be verified could not be used 250 dollars. So now I'm dealing with Priceline because I was also charged for my room twice. I am irate my bank account is overdrafted because of this place so unprofessional I would never recommend this place.

Tippler is a 10 minute drive but the bus will take you more than 30 mins with a fair bit of walking. You may want to consider nearby private accommodation that is similar cost per night but offers weekly or monthly discounts.

Stay in the city or in Waikiki (Airbnb best bet.) Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT stay here for 5 days. This is for a convenient few hours between flights, and NOT a place to stay for any length of time beyond a super short rest stop.
