Ilikai Marina 1785 is a good value

My recent stay at the Ilikai Marina studio condo 1785 was a good one. The condo is adequately stocked with a coffee maker, pots and pans, dishes, silverware, vacuum, and an iron. Ac works good. Free wireless internet and cable TV. Tv is small, but a flatscreen with good picture. The bed is a king and medium hard. The unit was clean. Lanai is small, view is of the city. Location is good for ala Moana shopping and the park. Bus stops are close. Rental car from alamo is nearby if you want a car for a day trip. Plenty of places to eat and five minutes to the lagoon or beach. Check-in and check-out effortless. My only gripe would be the cleaning fee, which for me was $200 over a 13 day stay. This was for one cleaning at mid-stay and one at check-out. I think one cleaning at the end of the stay would have been adequate and saved me $100. To be fair, I think cleaning charges are excessive for all condo rentals in Honolulu. I will certainly consider staying in 1785 again in the future, and would recommend the condo to those looking for a value accomodation for one or two people, or a couple with one child.

My personal tips

Shuttle from airport to Ilikai or Hawaii Prince

The airport shuttle will generally be your best value for one or two people. Have them drop you off and pick-up at the Ilikai or Hawaii Prince. Just a one block walk to the Ilikai Marina from either hotel. Ask for directions from the driver.
