Though there are bargains to be found, Hawaii is not known as a budget destination. It's popular with tourists all year round, and hotel rates tend to be correspondingly high. In Honolulu, Waikiki is the hot place to stay, with many splashy properties located right on Waikiki Beach. Budget travelers who are willing to walk a couple of blocks can save a few pennies by choosing a hotel near -- but not on -- the beach.
