The Best Western Coconut Waikiki—an 80-room, very cheap, and extremely cheerful hotel located on the Ala Wai Canal side of Waikiki—is a great place to stay even if you can afford better. (Splurge on a suite with water views, and it will still be half the price of the smallest room at the Halekulani or Kahala Resort). The first hint that this isn't your average Best Western is the giant gorilla stuffed animal that sits in the lobby—just for fun. The bright lime, aqua, and red Art Deco interiors give the entire place the feel of Pee-wee's Playhouse, and the young, friendly staff members have the enthusiasm of camp counselors. Rooms (well designed and Wi-Fi–equipped) have mini kitchens, and the complimentary breakfast buffet in the lobby includes toast, pastries, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, and cereals. Though the pool is the size of a large fountain, the beach and Waikiki strip are just three blocks away.—Cathay Che
