2.8 Bad
Cons:Staff were rude and very unprofessional. The room was extremely small and The bathroom was the size of an airline bathroom. There was mold in the shower. For the price I paid I would of expected more! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!
6.0 Okay
Cons:Breakfast quality
3.4 Poor
Pros:Hotel proximity to beach
Cons:Parking situation is horrendous. Very limited parking in a very poor parking garage. We cleared their guidelines only to scrap the roof of our rental car on the third floor. Couldn’t find parking on three evenings. Hotel charged us $35 a night and didn’t mention the $25 dollar a night public parking less than one block away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The newly renovated rooms with plenty of power/USB outlets, the large flat screen TV and location
Cons:Slow elevators, in window air conditioner.
9.1 Excellent
Pros:the new look and feel of the environment
Cons:they still was in renovation mode,but i'm sure it'll be 10 times greater soon
7.1 Good
Pros:I liked the new renovations. The view was amazing from our roomindid
Cons:I didn't like that I wasn't aware of the security deposit while reserving my room. Caused an issue with the payment but was able to still stay for a night. Front desk staff was amazing however housekeeper was not polite.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:I've been to Maile Sky Court before years ago & I must say that the rooms have definitely changed a lot! My boyfriend and I had no complaints. Inviting, comfortable, clean & beautiful. We know that the place is still undergoing some renovations and although we were a bit disappointed that the pool was closed we understand. We would definitely recommend Maile Sky Court to our friends and family!
8.0 Great
Pros:Our room had both a fridge and a microwave, which was nice. The location is also pretty good, being about 4 blocks from Waikiki.
Cons:Because the hotel is under construction until about December 30, things like the pool are out of commission. Also, parking isn't included in the nightly price - it's an extra $26 per night, and because of the construction you aren't guaranteed a spot. If you can't park there, tell the front desk and they'll refund that night's parking fee, but it's still a pain.
7.7 Good
Pros:Yhe friendl iness of the staff.
Cons:I know that the hotel is under construction, but there should be a better aor flow in the hallways and elevators.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Comfortable overnight stay. Staff helpful.
Cons:Bathroom sink faucet leaked.
