These are all hand-picked by me cheap hotels and rentals – more about Oahu here..
Waikiki Grand Hotel
Honolulu Cheap rates and Kitchenettes (save more money by packing snacks and eating in) and balconys available. Great views of Diamondhead.
Ohana Waikiki West
Waikiki Large hotel behind the International Marketplace. I am a big fan of the Ohana hotels – they are the cheaper version of the outrigger hotels (they are part of the same company, but designed and marketed more for families – think kitchen options, and lower prices.)

Waikiki Quality, oahu hotel fairly close to Waikiki Beach, the marketplace, the zoo, and the aquarium.
Kailua Large one bedroom house, as cheap as $805 a week. (2011)

Royal Grove Hotel
Waikiki Reviews: Kitchenette studios for under $60.00 in Waikiki. For that price I wouldn’t care if the building was pink! (it is). This is a family owned hotel that invites you to be part of the family.
Review of the royal grove from a reader:
“We picked up our car rental from Alamo, and set off for our hotel in the city. We stayed at the Royal Grove Hotel. The exterior left very much to be desired, and I must admit I was afraid this was going to be a dump. We were pleased to find that the hotel owns condos in the building across the street, at the Aston Pacific Monarch. This is a much nicer looking building, although it matches all the other towers slapped up on Waikiki in the 60s. If we had bought the same type of room from Aston, it would have been almost twice as expensive. The room was spartan, and the carpet could have used a shampoo, but it had a full kitchenette, a clean bathroom, and a large patio. Our room was on the twelfth floor, so we had a good view, although it was better from the rooftop pool, above the 32nd floor.”
Backpackers Plantation Village
North Shore Part of this funky little resort is a hostel, and you’ll need to be able to appreciate the the “hippy” life to be happy here, but there are private rooms available for as little as $62.00 a night. Great deal for special people. Private rooms, private studios, and private cabins – plus cheap hostel beds
