Great friendly staff. Clean room. Nice small bar in the lobby. A free drink on arrival. Would recommend and would stay here again.

Liked the valet service. Employees were very nice.

The staff was incredible, specifically beautiful Rene the receptionist, she always said "hello", asked repeatedly about our family, and was very gracious-a lovely person. Lincoln who helped in the garage area with parking our cars was warm, funny, and just delightful each time we came in or out of the premises. Savannah was also helpful and immediately dropped everything she was doing to accommodate me with questions I had about billing. The housekeeping staff was amazing, our series of rooms were clean and tidy with staff attentive to our needs in a friendly fashion. The experience we had at The Equus for one week after Christmas was exceptional. Large hotels may try to have more glitz and glamour, but sorry, they cannot compare with the class and warmth of the Paniola at The Equus. Bravo Staff!

Good location for the price and friendly staff. Internet wasn’t great though

Maintenance was horrible and carpets are in bad shape. I found bottle tops on the floor in a “clean” room

This hotel was the perfect choice for my recent trip to Honolulu! So convenient and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again!

good area, clean room, a little dated, would stay there again

Great location and staff make this hotel a gem and a rare find. I’d stay here again. Puka especially was very friendly.

The location and the staff make this place A+ and totally worth staying at

I liked the theme of horses and the main reason for staying at this hotel. Just wished there was more parking.

We've stayed at various other larger hotel chains in Honolulu & Waikiki areas and I would have to say that this hotel is a hidden gem. If you like the hustle and bustle of the crowds etc then stay elsewhere. I loved the calmness of the hotel, the staff is super friendly and helpful. The little cafe/bar in the hotel is also high quality and excellent. They have a little pool area also but we didn't get to try it. The rooms are a lot bigger than other hotel chains, very cozy and comfortable. The ice box is also bigger than other chains and they had a Keurig in the room! The only thing I would say could be improved is either put in black out curtains or upgrade the A/C. The shutters add a nice touch but too much light comes in and at night the A/C wasn't as cold as we wanted it to be. Other than that, I will defiantly be back!

TV did not work WiFi did not work AC bad Elevator is scary and sketchy. Place. Is very old. Nice people tho!

Great location but still very quiet for being downtown. Feels special being so small, but rooms are ample and staff very gracious. I'll stay there again for sure.

It was a little room, the only thing I would complain about is the

I really enjoyed this hotel. It was nice being a little off the main Waikiki strip but still close enough to walk to main attractions. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Valet was amazing and very helpful. I would DEFINITELY go back and stay at this hotel.
