Fodor's Review

Despite an explosion of high-rise construction all around it, the low-rise Breakers continues to offer a taste of 1960s Hawaii in this small complex a mere half-block from Waikiki Beach. The Breakers' six two-story, ranch-style buildings surround its pool and overlook gardens filled with tropical flowers. Guest rooms have Japanese-style shoji doors that open to the lanai, kitchenettes, and bathrooms with showers only. The Breakers enjoys enviable proximity to the

Waikiki Beach Walk entertainment, dining, and retail complex and is very popular thanks to its reasonable prices and great location. Wasabi Bistro, a popular Japanese restaurant in Kapahulu is here.

Take a Break(ers) In Paradise

I stayed at The Breakers for 4 days in April and I am so glad I choose this hotel. The staff is tremendous (suggested restaurants and helped with directions), the hotel is quaint and comfortable, and the value is extraordinary! I am so glad I read the reviews on this site. This hotel is BY FAR the best value in Honolulu!

Take a Break here!

The Breakers is old, but supremely suited our family of four in a garden suite (separate bedroom with a queen bed, twin beds in main room, lots of closet space, kitchen, dining table). Of course, I prefer 5 star hotels, but what a deal this is; it is old, but not grossly dirty. The owners are very nice people. We saved lots of time and money by going to the Foodland or ABC store and stocking up on breakfast and lunch goodies; we ate breakfast in

and packed lunches for the beach. Gave us much more flexibility in doing expensive activities like the Polynesian Cultural Center, parasailing, swimming with the dolphins, etc.

This hotel won't breaker bank

A charming oasis in the midst of big impersonal hotels this property will bring me back next year. The staff is unbelievably warm and attentive and the other hotel guests were like family by the end of our trip. I have never stayed at a hotel were the staff knew my name and I was touched by the lovely lei and goodbye when we left. A great find and a definite repeat customer.

Quaint and Charming - both the hotel and the staff

We stayed here during our 3 days in Oahu on our honeymoon in August 2002 and couldn't have been more delighted. Ok, it wasn't luxurious, but the price couldn't be beat. They even put us in the "honeymoon suite" even though we didn't ask for it. The staff was knowledgeable, kind and they even gave us a lei and big hugs when we left! The pool side bar, only open Mon-Fri in the afternoon, makes a great hamburger and the bartender Tom makes a great

drink for excellent prices. We would definitely stay here again if we come back.
