Hotel help on Waikiki

Looking for a hotel on Waikiki with an oceon view or at least a partial view. Trying not to go over 150.00 per night. Aug. 25 for 4 or 5 nights.
Thanks

Try Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach...I'm not sure if they have rates that low, but they might. We've stayed there twice and loved it, and it has excellent ocean views. Both times we've booked city-views (the cheapest) and been upgraded to partial or full ocean view.

Except the Outrigger Waikiki website says "summer rates from $235 per night" so that's quite a bit out of the price range.

The two I know and like near that price range are low-rise without views for $120-125 (The Hawaiiana Hotel and The Breakers on BeachWalk).

I highly recommend the Waikiki Circle, where on your dates you can get full ocean front for 188, ocean view for 167, and partial ocean view for 147. (hotel tax is about 11% and I think that is not included in the quoted price). Hotel is across street from beach park.

Here's what I said in my trip report: We stayed at the Waikiki Circle for ten days. It is curently managed by Resortquest, but is still owned by the family of the woman who built the hotel in the 60s, which I was glad to know. We had an oceanfront room, 404. I understand the three front rooms on each floor are considered oceanfront. Ours was the center of these, so the one on either side would have a slightly less straight-on view of the ocean. I posted some pictures at worldisround.com/articles/334335/index.html which includes the view from our balcony and the room interior. Most mornings we would get up, eat some yogurt and fruit, and walk across the street to swim, then return to the room about 10. We spent hours on the balcony looking at the water and the surfers, and we felt like we were at the beach all the time because we were so close. The room was small but the beds were very comfortable. The closet was quite large, and extra coat hangers were brought when I asked for them. The bathroom was small but quite adequate. the mini-fridge was fine for beer, juice, and yogurt. There was complimentary coffee in the lobby in the mornings. The location was just great, and I would quite happily stay again in an oceanfront or oceanview room. We did ask one day if we could see a somewhat higher room, and a very nice young man at the front desk took us up to the 7th floor. I might like to be on the 6th floor next time, because on the 4th the streetlights are at about eye level and kind of obstruct the view at night. Cost was 189 a night.

A couple of others to look at are Waikiki Beachside and the Parkshore.

Does anyone know of any hotels near the Honolulu airport with a shuttle to/from the airport? We will only be staying on Oahu one night and will not have a car.

Thanks!

There are only 2 or 3 hotels near the Honolulu airport. I'm sure you can find their names over at www.tripadvisor.com
