OLD MUSTY MOLDY SMELLING ROOM. We were told we could move to a different hotel but it never happened. I had allergy probs the whole time we were in the room. The elevator shakes and rattles and there is NO AC in the elevator or hall upstairs. We had trouble getting the keys out of the lockbox that was provided and it took over 20 mins to get inside.The Television didn't work and we had trouble accessing the wifi. Overall it was a horrible place to stay and nobody cared when we complained.

On island for medical apt.. Booked weeks in advace, arrived, took a drive up North going to play in the ocean. Best mac/coconut shrimp ever at Seven Brothers! Called about check in, no answer. Called and called, finally an answer, nice sounding woman. "Did you receive the online check in emai? No. Okay I will send it.' It arrives - download Docusign. As I am touring it takes over two hours to download. I call # no answer. Okay heading back to Waikiki I pull over a couple times to check download, still in progress. I call res., no answer. 5:30 pm I arrive at Marina Tower, glitch in program won't let me sign. That was a 3 hour waste of my time/phone batttery. I left home fully charged, am now down to 20% and have 1 day still. I go to Equus Hotel in front. Totally organized manager attempts to help me out. Goes over all 4 windows of Docusign with me, everything complete but signature boxes don't proceed. I cannot get the code for the lockbox. I text res. copies of my cc/dl. Down to 12% battery I begin emailing reservations. She see's my attempts online. Nothing she can do. Phone going to die I ask how much a room is at the Equus, same price. I suggested MT just cancel my reservation as I dont want to be charged for a room I cant get into. She cancels my booking. Equus checks me in in 3 minutes I get my key and get on with a nice noght in Waikiki. My advice to MT send out all that info, app, etc. as soon as someone books. You invaded my awesome day on Oahu with gocking at the phone all day. Employ people at the front office of MT and show some Aloha, at the same time you will be giving back to the community. Mahalo

I rented a room in the Marina Towers for 2 nights prior to boarding the Pride of America. In 63 years I have had some bad experiences but none that top this one. When i rented it I did not realize it was a condo. I found it hard to locate and there was No one available to reach out to ask any questions. If you get a rental car plan to pay for parking. When the elevator does work it takes forever to get to you. The first night i stayed they shut the elevator down for the entire weekend and i Had to carry my luggage up and down to the 24th floor the entire time. Again no one on premises to reach out to. Once i got in the room the blankets and sheets were dirty...The AC didn't work... The TV didn't work... The Wifi didn't work... The window shades wouldn't pull down...The Windows allowed air to pass through creating a whistle sound the whole night and again no one available to get anything working. They will take your money and from there your on your own. I wouldn't recommend this dump to my worst enemy. BUYER BEWARE!!!

We had to change our booking last minute and ended up in this hell hole. When I booked online it was for room 2804. When we arrived we ended up in room 3504. I’ve attached photos. This place is a dump. We had stained towels, blood stains on the mattress, broken cupboards and filthy cutlery. For the first week the elevator worked then they turned it off due to high winds. Ironically the hotel in front of ours still has all of theirs running. Being on the 35th floor with bad knees and ankles and a partner who bodyboards climbing 35 floors was horrifying. It completely destroyed our holiday as our first trip to Hawaii and our first holiday as a couple. If you book this place your nuts!!! Whilst here we have tried many times to seek a refund through Airbnb but they are useless.

Why has this place not been shut down yet ? The rooms are filthy, not only mine but also from the other guests I met on the stairways because none of the elevators where working. The toilet bowl and shower, the floors and the bedding where very dirty and stained. The sheet on top of the mattress had a blood and urine stain in the size of a dinner plate, than covered with another sheet. The worst accommodation ever. I have traveled the world in economy and luxury places .Even third world countries showed more respect and pride to a traveler. The elevator worked one time but kept on dropping between floors, it is outride dangerous. I tried to get part of my money back but the management refused. The location is the only good thing about this place.

We were in the Best Western on business during Christmas but needed another night's stay before our flight on the 28th and Best Western wasn't available. It would appear that the New Year is prime time to visit Hawaii. After searching TripAdvisor, I came across this place. I read reviews, good and bad, with the main complaint being the elevator. So, reluctantly, I booked it for the one night (not to mention, our $300+ price was cheaper than the almost $1000 price for other places - and there weren't that many choices). First, there is no early check in, even though instructions said you could ask. So, precisely at 4pm, we got in to our room. The TV was on (we figured that was because the remote didn't work most of the time). As I entered the door to the room, I noticed a cabinet door ajar. I went to shut it to keep from hitting my head upon entering. It was open because it wouldn't stay closed. Once we got in to the room, I put one of our bags on the bed. I've seen trampolines with less bounce. And throughout the night, every time one of us moved, it almost launched the other one. Needless to say, we got very little sleep. While looking the place over, I noticed the faucet in the shower leaked. Also, the first time we washed our hands in the bathroom sink, it became apparently clear that it was clogged. It took hours to drain. Also, when I went to throw something away, I discovered the cabinet door hiding the trash can in the "kitchenette" was loose and almost fell off (it was being held by one hinge). As for the elevator, I do believe I read reviews from a couple of years back with guests complaining about the elevator ( just how long doesn't take to fix an elevator?). When we checked in, there was one of the two elevators working, so, yes, we had a long wait. Thankfully, we had to leave before sunrise, so the elevator wasn't too much of a problem. Also, since we did leave before sunrise, we discovered that there are no lights in the tight, small parking garage, so you might want to make sure you have a flashlight. We stayed here because there were few choices, but I wonder if we would have been just as comfortable sleeping in our Jeep.

DO NOT BOOK THIS PROPERTY, it is a nightmare, elevators have been shutdown for our entire stay have to climb 38 floors in stairwell that is littered with garbage and urine, with no airflow. According to live in residents there is no budget or timeline to fix the elevators. Only plus side is the view if you have ocean view room, but that alone is not worth it, save yourself the headache and book elsewhere.

The images I have attached pretty much sum it up. I am considering filling a formal complaint with the consumer protection of the state of Hawaii. Here are some of the main issues we encountered: Sheets, pillow cases, and towels were all heavily stained. I found nail clippings and hair on the sheet. Even the fridge had not been emptied! The toilet bowl was very dirty. The shower was moldy, and the shower drain was clogged. I sent the same pictures I have accompanied with this review in an email and also a few text messages to their management, but have not received any response yet (a week after we checked out). We ended up calling them to just get clean sheets and towels. We happened to be in the unit when someone finally showed up to replace the stained sheets and towels. The person struggled with finding clean sheets: He went through four sheets until he finally found a clean one. Even he himself was surprised! We had not been told about the situation with the elevator (45 minute wait time as in the notice in one of the images). The building has two elevators and for a period during our stay both were down. We had to take the stairs. The unit we stayed at was on the 29th floor. The broken door handles of the microwave and the fridge, and the use of two twin mattresses instead of a queen or king mattress (see the images) indicate how poorly maintained this place is. DO NOT BOOK WITH MARINA TOWER WAIKIKI!

We love waikiki and the views were absolutely breathtaking from the 36th floor condo. the owner of the condo was excellent to work with as well. we stayed in 3603 and i would highly recommend the actual condo itself. The elevators are another story. We had a special dinner planned and, since I am so uber famous, felt it necessary to have my hair and make up done. I return to the building to go up and get dressed and on the way up- alone-(because Im fancy like that and had my own private elevator- aka no one else was dumb enough to get on said elevator) the elevator stopped. On the 30th floor. after 15 minutes of crying screaming for help -sweating off the miracle make up job some poor lady did to my face...the lights go out and the elevator slips down a few feet so im now stuck staring at the all between the 29thand 30th floors. I have never had anxiety or a panic attack of any sort since Prince died and im afraid that evening i did. That or I just peed my pants- who knows. People were trying to help, no one could get the doors open but the fire department came and after 40 minutes and six firemen later(SIX firemen, ladies. you read that right) they were able to wedge the door open so i could be pulled out. Ive never wanted to grab a fireman so badly. or have I. But my boyfriend was there and naturally my first option for an ab grab. I hate to leave a bad review as the owner of the condo is wonderful, but I had to walk up and down 36 flights of stairs the remainder of our trip anytime I came and went, which I am sure sounds like a dream if you're a CrossFit junkie which I am not. plus side i now have a butt the Kardashians would envy and I slept like a baby on the red eye home which made for a quiet and relaxing return flight for the boyfriend.
