Recent guest reviews

Wonderful staff and vibe. Great restaurant. Recommended.

nice location and good value. very relaxing night. good staff. frontt desk very helpful.

Nice hotel within walking distance to the beach and other vicinities. Hotel staffs are helpful mostly but hotel rooms show signs of age even they are recently renovate.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite overlooking the pool. The rooms were very spacious and had access to the balcony. The murals and artwork in the lobby and pool added a cool contemporary vibe, which made the experience great. Staff was amazing!!!

Perfect staff, kind and professional. Perfect location Perfect room Perfect pool Perfect service

After reading earlier reviews, I thought that they had to be contrived to be so good...but they were "right on." As one review started out "You will know that you are in for a different experience as soon as you step on to the property." The visual impression is great but the attention from the staff is second to none. They make you feel welcome as soon as your feet hit the curb. The interest in making sure that you are well-informed about the hotel and its many extraordinary features reinforces that they have interest in making sure that your experience will be a good one and that they genuinely seem to like their jobs.

Location was great, right in the center of all the good restaurants and close to the beach. Standard room with king bed was quite small and did not have a full-length mirror! Pool is small and not a comfortable place to hang out as everyone walking through the lobby gets a stare.

Nice discovery. Super friendly staff. Clean rooms. Comfortable bed. Safe area and good shops, restaurants. Close to beach. Seems well maintained, cool retro touches, intimate feeling. I’d go back!

I was excited to check out the Surfjack and it did not disappoint. I arrived earlier than expected and asked to stash my bag--they were able to give me early check-in instead. The morning staff was so kind at both the front desk and the restaurant. The gentleman working at breakfast was fun to talk to and was able to bring my breakfast up to my room. Dinner was delicious and the atmosphere was great fun. I will definitely return when I have a bit less work to do!

First time to Hawaii. Will definitely be back. Fabulous stay at hotel. Front desk upgraded us to a one bedroom suite. Loved the fact that it had a mini fridge. The resort fee includes complimentary welcome snacks, daily bottled water, beach towel service, daily coffee and/or tea and wifi service. In house restaurant, Mahina & Sun’s is delicious as well- especially the memorable naked pig pizza! They were able to accommodate despite the fact that I decided to stroll up five minutes before closing. Talk about the attack of the 10pm munchies! Centrally located and very friendly staff- from front desk to housekeeping! Had such a wonderful stay that I commemorated it by purchasing the hotel tote to carry around. I paid money to do free publicity for them. ;o)

First time to visit Hawaii. Did research on line about the hotels and decided on Surfjack. They had great reviews and we were not disappointed! Every feature was perfect and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay!!! We feel like they are now our Hawaiian Family ❤️

This is an updated old Waikiki Hotel. It is not very close to the beach, or have a very nice pool area. The staff is excellent but the facilities for the money isn't a deal. Hidden fees like "Resort Charge" and Valet Parking brought our total to over $200/night, almost 50% more than the published rate. Orbitz, you need to start publishing total Hotel charges like your cars and flights.

Close to everything, walk to beach, great shopping area, many restaurants close by

I spent 5 nights at Surfjack recently and this whole trip was just amazing. It's a super trendy hotel, there is a coffee shot and restaurant, Mahina & Suns on site. Hotel guests get free coffee/tea in the mornings from Mahina & Suns as well as $10/day credit (from your resort fee). The location is conventient- 15-20 mins walk to Waikiki and there are lots of restaurants near by. You can also borrow bikes from the hotel to ride around. I would definitely return to Surfjack, not because of its location or trendy docor, but mainly because of it's top of the line staff! Everyone at Surfjack was so friendly and helped me out with all kinds of questions/where to go/visit/what to do. Mahalo to everyone working at Surfjack and hope to visit Honolulu soon!

The facility and service is great and food at the restaurant is also tasty. Very quiet area and good hotel to relax. Keep in mind that you have to pay $25 each day as hospitality fee. Housekeeping needs to be improved.

After coming to the Hawaiian Islands all of my life for vacation, Surfjack has exceeded any other accommodations I have experienced in 25 years. I highly recommend it for atmosphere, design, service, and overall fun. I hope they open more locations in the future! - MUST STAY!

If you hate the tourist-y type of vacation/hotel, you would love it here. It's super hip--Mahina & Sun's has great food, and Olive & Oliver has an amazing curated selection of clothing and gifts. If you love art, design, and interiors you would appreciate The Surfjack--from the hotel key card to the bathroom tile to the swimming pool. Definitely recommend!

New boutique hotel, great service, good location, great amenities, clean stylish rooms
