Overnight Parking: General Information

Hotel Parking

Hotel parking can be the most convenient, but usually most expensive, option for travelers. Most hotels offer both self parking and valet parking. Valet parking is roughly $10/day more expensive than self-parking rates, not counting the cost of tips. Each hotel has its own rules so we recommend you asking the following questions when conducting your research.

Things to Consider When Looking For Parking

  • How much does on-site parking cost?
  • Does the structure allow unlimited in-and-out privileges or can you only exist and enter the parking lot once?
  • Is the cost of parking included in the cost of the resort fee?
  • Are your fees determined by the calendar day or by 24-hour periods?
  • Are there any other costs associated with parking (e.g. taxes and tips)?

Public Parking Garages

Public garages can offer cheaper rates than hotels do, but you are going to have to walk a bit to get there. The downside to using these garages is that rates and rules are highly variable. Don’t be surprised to see day rates, night rates, overnight rates, and hourly rates on the same price board! In the tables in part 3, we list the affordable garages near your hotel.

On-Street Parking and Parking at Public Parks

Parking meters can cost as much as $1.50 per hour in Waikiki. We we do not recommend you park on the street for two reasons: (1) you are not guaranteed a stall and (2) there are many different rules governing different zones, and you risk getting your car towed if you don’t read the street signs.

Ala Wai Canal and Ala Moana Beach Park

Other blogs will recommend free parking on Ala Wai Boulevard (alongside Ala Wai Canal) and at Ala Moana Beach Park. We advise against this. Parking is prohibited along the Ala Wai Canal on weekdays from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Ala Moana Beach Park is closed overnight. If your car is in these areas during the restricted times, it will be towed.

Free Parking with Hui Car Share

The best way to avoid parking fees altogether is to use a car sharing service like Hui Car Share. Hui is a round-trip car rental service that allows you to reserve and unlock a car (download it here). With Hui, you can pick up a car from 13 locations just blocks away from most Waikiki hotels. With Hui, you must return the car to the same location that you picked the car up from, you cannot drop a car off at a different location. Free parking with Hui is limited to the station you pick your car up from. You cannot pick up a car and park it in any location.

Gas is also free and insurance is included with your reservation. Prices start at $10/hour and $80/day. All locations are accessible 24/7.

The Cheapest Place to Park in Waikiki

In East Waikiki, the Waikiki Banyan is the cheapest place to park your car overnight. In West Waikiki, the Ala Wai Boat Harbor is the cheapest place to park your car overnight. These two lots are the stalwart recommendations that you’ll find across every forum and blog out there. We think these are great places to park but they can be out of the way, so expect to walk a little further to get to these lots.
