Ohana Waikiki Malia
- What's Included
We had multiple rooms for our stay so I was able to see a variety of room styles. One room had a full kitchen which was great. These rooms would be good if you have kids because there is a separate room from the kitchen and living room.The room I stayed in however was a bed, and a bathroom. Not even a microwave. AND no vent or air circulation so the room always smelled musky and like mildew. The parking garage gave me serious anxiety. It's super steep and ONE LANE!!! Plus it's $30/ day. Each corner you go around is a 3 point turn and if someone is coming up while you are trying to leave, you have to back up and around the corners. Just typing about it is making me anxious all over again. Pluses: staff were really nice and helpful. Location is decent with just a small walk to the beach. You get free use of a shuttle through Waikiki or up to Ala Moana. We took the shuttle once and it was really easy. Elevators were quick, and they have 4 so they are easily accessible and you never have to wait long. All-in-all, it was a decent stay but I wouldn't stay there again.
My stay at the hotel was okay. I don't think for what I paid for was worth the price for the service or the room. We weren't told anything about the parking price or resort fees. When I checked in for my stay I was just asked for my information and room keys. I wasn't told to take advantage of the other services that were available to all room guests at the hotel. Parking was way too expensive, $20/25 per day and the resort fee that no one even told me about shocked me the most. I just thought that once I had checked in I would of been aware of all the fees but I wasn't which was a bummer to my stay. My hotel happened to be in the end of the hallway which was a good and bad thing. Good because it we didn't hear any foot traffic from the other guest but bad because during the night you can hear everything outside of the hotel. Good thing that I was a deep sleeper but still some nights I could not sleep due to the noise outside. Also, I asked for a non-smoking room but here and there throughout the day and night when we were in our room there will be a strong smell of cigarette smokes. The smell was so bad that it made me not want to stay inside the room at all and also caused some sleepless nights at the hotel. The hotel is at a nice location where it's not far from the shopping centers and beach. That's the only pro that I can say about my stay at the hotel. I wish I can say more but that's the only two that is coming as of now to mind.Just keep in mind you will pay for parking and there is a resort fee that may not be told to you when you check in. Be sure to ask if there is any other fees that you would need to pay for when you do check in.
The Ohana Malia was perfect for our 4 night stay in Waikiki. The hotel is older but the room was a good size, fridge and clean! The ocean view was enough and the fireworks from the Hilton was perfectly seen. The staff is very customer orientated and amazing with the different cultures that came through. The pool area is small but perfect for a quick dip after being busy all day. Just 2 blocks to the beach and great location to eateries, shops and bus stop! Would stay here again..unless I'm going for the luxury type hotel. Thanks for a good vacation spot to lay our heads!
I wish I could give all 5-stars but I feel like doing so would be a form of dishonesty. Don't get me wrong, I had an overall good experience at the ʻOhana Waikiki Malia, but there were some things I found that weren't up to par with my expectations, which are pretty average. Here are the pros and cons of this hotel based on my experience there:Pros:1. The location is very good (close to the Royal Hawaiian Center & Waikiki Beach area)2. The Waikiki Connection Fee that is charged to every reservation includes unlimited rides on the Waikiki Trolley for each person with a room key card (just show the room key card to the driver when boarding)3. The IHOP restaurant on the ground level is very good and the service there was great4. There's a room option for three people looking for a room with 3 seperate beds (My party and I were all friends and didn't feel like sharing beds)5. The customer service at the front desk was very good and I felt like we were welcomedCons:1. The room we stayed in had some spots that weren't cleaned too well2. The elevator operation was very confusing at first (the front desk person helped us out though, which was a plus)3. Even though I was told by the front desk that late check-out was available for my reservation, when I called the cashier/cash office they told me that they couldn't offer us late check-out because there was no vacancy at the time (We had a flight later on in the night and wanted to keep our luggage in our room and be able to go back and take showers and things like that; although they did offer us a hospitality room and luggage storage at the bell desk, which made up for the fact)Overall, my experience at the ʻOhana Waikiki Malia was pretty good, and I would recommend it for people looking for family or small-group accommodations who are on a budget or people trying to find a decent last-minute option.
We were at the Ohana for 4 nights. The room we got for the first night had an old carpet. I told the front desk that we'd like to switch out of that room and they were very professional in accomodating our request. We got two connecting rooms for the same price on the 18 floor. Thank you Kayo and Manny! The view of the ocean from our rooms was amazing! Also the hotel is located walking distance from world class dining and shopping experiences. We couldn't have been happier. I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a hotel in Waikiki.
