            It is a very basic hotel and bit costly if you compare the facilities. Room becomes noisy on a windy day. The only good thing is the location.

            This is a well positioned hotel on Ala Moana Blvd, away from the hussle and bussle of Waikiki, yet close enough to walk to the main part of Waikiki and all tbe restaurant's, with the shoppjng centre 5mins walk away. Our stay was just an overnight stay before Int'l flight home, so it was only 20mins from the Airport for our early morning flight.

            My wife and I are senior citizens. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Entry to the hotel required climbing 2 flights of stairs. The room resounded with traffic noise, preventing sleep. It is located next to a very busy Honolulu street. We transferred to another hotel the next day after registering our concerns with Ms. Rene Kahumoku, who was very kind and understanding. We are requesting a refund of our deposit covering the dates from Dec 30, 2018 to Jan 2nd, 2019. We can be reached at 1-954-217-1404 or 954-805-4002

            not up to expectations”
            location
            My stay at The Equus is regrettably not a desirable one. I booked online and paid more to get a room with double bed. However on arrival, we were given a room with only 1 double bed. Thinking that it might be a mistake overlooked by the receptionist, we went back to the lobby to tell them. We were then told that all the other rooms are fully taken (with a less than friendly attitude). Well, firstly I made the booking 1.5 months in advance. Secondly, we could do with a more apologetic approach to this. The staff then offered to squeeze in another double bed in. I pointed out that the room is very tight-fit as it is, there is no way of getting another bed in. Staff got frustrated and said we just have to make do with 1 double bed then. I insisted that this is atrocious and staff went on to look through the system on his computer and said that there is actually another bedroom with 2 double bed... At that point in time, I was very annoyed but kept quiet and went up to the room. Room was in a poor condition (1) carpet were sticky and dirty (2) aircon is not cold (3) room generally not in good condition. Then I found out that the safe deposit was not working as well... so is the phone, went back down to the reception to notify them. They told us that someone will be up to repair it- waited 1 hr but to no avail. had to rush out after that. came back in the evening to ask about it again, was impatiently told by another staff that we just have to press digit "9". So we went back up to try, doesnt work. came back down, staff insisted that it should work... Exasperated, I decided not to argue with them anymore and just make do with the broken safe and phone in a lousy condition room. All in all, I had a very bad experience with The Equus- both with the quality of the hotel and with the staff's attitude.

            The best part is it's located a five-minute walk from Ala Moana Shopping Center. The bustling area of Waikiki is also about a 15-to-20-minute walk. Facility aging but renovated and kept clean. Moderately priced for Waikiki. Staff kind and helpful.

            I had a great stay at The Equus. The rooms were a great size, comfortable beds and amenities. There isn't anything bad to say about this hotel. The staff was great and had a tour guide ready to answer and help with planning. My room was serviced everyday too. They offered a texting service as well. You can text questions instead of calling guest services. I've seen some negative things said but most are out of the hotel's control. There was some noise but you're in front of a major road in a busy city. Parking isn't great but that's almost anywhere you go and they do offer next door a parking garage.

            Location, Simplicity, Service
            I got concerned, even after seeing pictures online, about the size of the hotel. But I don't know how they did it. They made a relatively small area feel so spacious. Had three people in a double deluxe room and had plenty of space for everyone. Located in walking distance to some piers, a beach, and any number of places to shop and eat for even the pickiest consumer. A mid-price range steal.

            Near to the biggest shopping mall in oahu, near to the main spot of waikiki , the Hilton Hawaiian Village, near to almost everything you will ever need in Waikiki
            Excellent. For the price we paid, we didn't expect a clean and good hotel room near to almost everything in Waikiki. Ala Moana shopping mall is just a few minutes walk away. It's a crazy confusing mall but damn, the sale all over is awesome! Hilton Hawaiian village is also a few minutes walk away. You can see the weekly fireworks from the balcony. If you will be booking tours around oahu, the common pick up point is Ilikai hotel which is also near Equus. There's also an ABC store nearby, its all over waikiki. Staff are awesome and we got checked in early!

            Attentive, friendly staff. Free wifi. Comfortable bed.
            The staff at the Equus made sure our stay was exceptional. They were friendly and attentive. When we had an early morning problem with a hair dryer, they were all over it. When they learned we were there for interviews, we got a sweet note wishing us good luck. We went for the free wifi, but would return because of the wonderful staff. They made us feel like family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Because the hotel is located on a main street, you get traffic noise. Because this is Waikiki, you should expect some noise. The location was perfect for us: close to our interviews and also walking distance to Ala Moana shopping center, beaches, restaurants, and Waikiki.
