Great Location-condo needs a few updates
This condo is in a super location in Honolulu. It was a 20 minute walk to Waikiki, or a 5 minute Uber ride. We loved looking over the marina, and enjoyed a great dinner at the Chart House restaurant in the same building. Parking was easy, kitchen appliances all worked well.
Now for the bad part-this condo is old. It needs some major love in the form easy cosmetic updates. For example, a new paint job-there were major paint dings on the walls everywhere. The carpet is very very tired. The bathroom tub/shower area needs to be replaced and/or new caulking and paint as soon as possible. The queen bed was lumpy and the comforter old and tired. Very old linoleum in the bath and kitchen areas.
We weren’t in the condo much, so I was able to overlook this, but need to let other vacationers know. I was disappointed with these issues, worse than many Super 8 motels. A great spot-please update the space.
aloha, We appreciate your feedback for the unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. It is a really great location conveniently located just where you want to be. The views from the unit are unbeatable and there are lots of restaurants in close walking distance. Waikiki Beach is just across the Marina parking lot and just takes about 5 minutes to reach walking. The Hilton Lagoon is also a nice attraction for cooling off in the same location. We appreciate your feedback on the unit and suggesting some updates. However this unit is individually owned so the owner would then have to increase prices to cover the costs. The current reasonable rate is a nice option for some to get a condo that has a full kitchen and is accommodating for a stay in a perfect location with a great view! We thank you again for your feedback.
Fabulous views! Condo was in the heart of everything so you don't need a car. Condo was equipped with everything you need for a wonderful stay. We would definitely stay here again!
aloha Allison, The views are great aren't they! We appreciate your review and taking the time to post. Thank you for all the great comments and we are glad to hear you will return!
The location was very good for our needs. The condo itself, however, needs some updating. New carpet, refreshed bathroom, linens and furniture would help. Additionally, the internet connection instructions were incorrect and we could not access the unit or building wireless network.
Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to post a review for the unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. Thank you for noting the great location as it is very convenient to everything! The condo itself is clean and does have what one needs. If updated more the very reasonable pricing would have to increase and there are not many pricing options in this range around. We wish you would have contacted us about the wifi as we could have helped with that. Anytime the guests call about the wifi in any of the units we represent, we can either step them through it on the phone or send our on island contact over to help which we are glad to do. Thank you again for your post.
We stayed here for 3 days. The condo itself was ok. It had everything we needed. There were no issues checking in or out. It would be nice to have parking included rather than spending $20.00/day. I understand this is the city but for renters it would be nice to include. We spent most of our trip on the North Shore and preferred that area. Waikiki is very busy with a lot of people. When I booked I thought the beach was right in front of us but the marina is right there. The beach is just a couple minutes' walk so not a big deal. The lanai is very small. There are 2 chairs but it was hard to relax when that is all you can fit on it. It served our purpose for what we needed. It would be great to include a larger TV and add one in the bedroom. I would say stay here if you are staying under a week or have a specific purpose for being there that is not vacation.
Aloha, Thank you for posting a review for us for the unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. We are glad you found everything you needed in this unit. No matter where you go in the city, parking is not free for hotel accommodations. However the public garage you spoke about at 20 dollars per day is just one option. The Marina parking is 1 dollar per hour and there are some curb side parking in different areas that are free if you happen to get a space. Considering the very reasonable price for this condo it even with the parking is a deal! Yes Waikiki is a big city and has all the attributes associated with a big city including people. People who are attracted to the city enjoy this atmosphere and all the conveniences of the multiple shops, restaurants and activities. They like being where the action is. The pictures on the website for unit 1590 does show the view from the lanai and that it overlooks the Marina and Ocean beyond. However you are very close to the Waikiki Beach just over to the left a very short walk. The website also shows the picture of the TV and the Lanai space which we want all guests to have a complete overview of this unit to make a decision if it is right for them.
Convenient location, pleasant apartment and a picturesque view
Mahalo to Kristen and her colleagues for providing clear and detailed instructions before, during and after our visit. The condo is conveniently located between the main tourist district of Waikiki and Ala Moana Shopping Center. Although there is a garage in the building (there is an additional fee), the condo is next to bus stops connecting to other points in Honolulu.
The view over the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor is stunning; you have a panoramic view facing south, and you have an unobstructed, front-row seat for the Friday evening fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The apartment is a 2 minute walk to the beach, and a 10 minute walk to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. There are a few convenient food options nearby. For a good, coffee-shop style breakfast, head to Cinnamon's at the llikai. For more upscale tastes, the dining options at the Modern are quite pleasant. Both places are accessible via a footbridge from the second floor.
The condo was very tidy when we arrived. The layout and convenience are wonderful; a full kitchen, as well as Internet access. The price point is ideal, too. I felt like I paid a very fair price for the level of accommodation. The apartment is comfortable but not luxurious. Having said that, I do have a few small suggestions for the unit owner. I think a small "refreshing" of the amenities would benefit future guests. While the apartment is clean, it is showing a little wear: the carpet could use a deep cleaning, the bathtub had signs of a little mold, and the apartment could use a coat of bright paint. Linens and kitchen items could use an update, a quick trip to Walmart or Target could take care of this. However, these details did not detract from our stay.
The condo building is well-maintained, with evening security. I would advise staying on a high floor if you are disturbed by noise. The Chart House restaurant and the Harbor Pub closes late each night, and some of the lingering guests made a little noise. The other guests and tenants of the building are courteous and respectful.
All in all, I would happily return to the Ilikai Marina Condo. Mahalo for a great stay!
We stayed here for a few days around Thanksgiving as a staycation and we greatly enjoyed our stay. The condo was fully equipped and had a terrific view. We actually enjoyed the slightly outdated look as it had the Aloha vibe. Watching the fireworks from the room was amazing and located in a great location. We also loved the ease of accessing the property without having to do a hotel checkin. There are plenty of places to eat and shop nearby and we loved the location. It is also a short walk to the mall which is nice. We definitely plan to have another staycation in this condo!
Aloha Thank you for your review of the unit 1590 at the Ilikai Marina. We love hearing about how you enjoyed the unit and the location and hope you can come back again soon!
