Nautical Mom - I hope you will get to enjoy the pleasure of visiting Hawaii at some point during your sailor's time there. 

Comment by topdog1p on Thursday

Nautical Mom I too recommend the Hale Koa in Waikiki when you get to go visit. My son and I stayed there when his boat made a stop in Hawaii. It is an older hotel but you can not beat the price. While there you are given a card that allows you to shop at the small shop they have there. ( it is a very small mini nex) I enjoy also enjoy the onsite restaurant and luau. My son did have to make the reservation and stay  and pay for the room. I believe since your  sailor will be station there he can make the reservation and will not have stay there  with you. I so enjoyed staying there with the beach a very short walk and also being able to walk to downtown Honolulu. Yes traffic is a pain.

Comment by WearsLargeHats on Thursday

Nautical Mom, I highly recommend the Hale Koa in Waikiki. It is a military resort run by the Army MWR. We stayed there and had a wonderful time. It is right next to a park, and there is a small military museum on the other side of the park. The cost is similar to other resort hotels there, maybe a little less, but there is no resort fee.
The catch is that, unless someone in your party is a veteran, your sailor will need to check you in. Call the Hale Koa for details on how to work that out.
Driving between Pearl Harbor and Honolulu isn't one of the high points. Traffic can be pretty bad.

Comment by CSW on Thursday

Nautical Mom,

I have some suggestions for packing/shipping items if you want to PM me. We had a few concerns with his vehicle getting the paperwork organized and I could help you with what I learned. Also help you with some expectations about how his transfer will go. If he's an E4 or a frocked E5 he will have to live on base when he arrives.  If he's a Nuke he'll be assigned a sea dad who will help him when he arrives. I suggest you go to Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam and search the site for new arrivals to work through some expectations and they talk there about lodging.

Comment by Nautical Mom on Thursday

Good morning all and Happy Thursday! My sailor received orders for Hawaii !! does anyone have any recommendations of where to stay when I eventually go visit? I've never been to Hawaii and I hear it can be quite expensive.
