For lodging, we highly recommend AirBnb.
AirBnB Oahu has incredibly good rates with units in Waikiki and Diamond Head. The Makiki and Honolulu area might be even more convenient.

Conveniently close in Waikiki, the Ambassador Hotel Waikiki has good prices - averaging $150/night

The nearest hotels are the Pagoda Hotel, a bit dated but near the shopping center, also the Ala Moana Hotel next to Ala Moana Shopping Centre - Prices average $180/night.

Trivago is a good source for deals.
