I went there two years ago and drank too much rum punch and puked in the ocean. Also if someone dares you to drink the saltwater don't do it. I forget which hotel I was at but it was one of the resort-type deals and wasn't too TTT. Try to avoid some of the smaller hotels because I heard they have roaches in the bathrooms. Also if you're in O'Ahu you should take one of the small planes to Maui, it kicks ass.

I went with my family like 20 years ago.  I don't know what hotel we stayed at, but we did several things in Oahu that were memorable:  visited Pearl Harbor, visited the Polynesian Cultural Center, and went on an air tour that flew the attack path of the Japanese toward Pearl Harbor and flew over the Dole pineapple fields.

I lived on O'ahu for about 4 years. I really can't recommend any cheap hotels, but there are plenty downtown in the keys, but that's like an hour's drive from the Northshore. However....you have to check out this place called the Shack in Kailua. Best wings in the world!

I got a sweet deal a year ago for $400 w/some Russian company. 1 week, airfare included. It was in a pretty decent hotel in Waikiki.

If you have the time, I would highly recommend renting a car and driving a circle around the island. There are a lot of cool stops along the way for views, pineapple farms, shrimp shacks etc. Funnest part of the trip for my friends and I.
