Aqua Aloha offers a budget stay without downgrading the vacation experience. Guest rooms are petite, with free Internet access and mostly moderate city views (some also have lovely Ala Wai Canal and mountain views). They’re clean, bright and modern with a trace of trendy. Once you open the balcony glass doors, your room feels much bigger. The open-air lobby is relaxed, spacious and welcoming. Many of the guests hang out down here, shaded by white-sail, banner-style wall hangings and white canvas cabanas perfect for an afternoon game of cards. The swimming pool area near the cabanas is inviting and contemporary. There are three fitness machines in the lobby; or, grab your iPod and walk or jog along Ala Wai Canal with the locals. The hotel is less than a block from a large grocery store and two full blocks from the beach. If you've stayed here before, note that the onsite Chinese restaurant has closed. Plenty of dining is available within a two-block radius.

I guess you can't expect much from these kinds of hotel. I mean, they tried to make it look like any other boutique hotels, but far from it.
The staff here are very friendly and courteous, this is the only reason I write the review. The rooms here are very small even for one person traveling. I didn't really spend the night here. I got this hotel room for a friend visiting from out of State. The room per night wasn't that expensive either.
The view though is not bad, you have the mountains view and the Ala Wai canal. It's not too far from the beach and most of the restaurants here are in short walking distance only.

The Aloha Surf went through a nice update and it's a decent place to stay. Love the proximity to the Food Pantry market next door. Parking available, but notify them advance of your needs. Their continental breakfast was severely lacking, but with the Food Pantry and other things nearby, not a big deal.

This quiet budget hotel greets you with a contemporary, open-air, surf-themed lobby, a saltwater aquarium behind the front desk and a warm and friendly staff. There’s a minimal fitness area on the ground floor as well as a small pool/lounging space with a barbeque grill. The east facing 12th floor room was small but comfortable and updated with a soothing décor. The flatscreen was small but they provide complimentary room internet access, with WiFi only available in public areas. The nice sized, private lanai had views of the Ala Wai Canal/golf course to the left and glimpses of Diamond Head and the ocean through neighboring hotels in the opposite direction. Onsite coin-operated laundry facilities are available and they provide a wholesome, complimentary continental breakfast as well as a coffee and tea service 24/7. And check out their relaxing Edward’s Internet Café.
The turquoise-hued lobby is splashed with ocean-blue and sea-green accents, while the walls are hung with big-wave surfing photographs. Real surfboards decorate the walls, and surf videos play around the clock on a plasma-screen television. This property offers complimentary coffee and tea service 24/7, plus a weekly manager's reception. The hotel also includes an outdoor pool bordered by cabanas and a sundeck, plus small fitness area. Wi-Fi access is complimentary in public areas.
This 16-story smoke-free property offers 175 guestrooms decorated in deep blue and purple hues and light-toned wood furnishings. Fresh anthurium blossoms are replaced daily. Select rooms extend onto private balconies. Rooms include complimentary high-speed Internet access, LCD flat-screen televisions and plush AquaBLISS bedding.
