Ohana Waikiki Malia
- What's Included
Look- it's not like we needed a swanky place to stay in Honolulu. The fun is all outdoors anyway. And the good parts of this hotel are that it's located just a few walking blocks to the beach, it's reasonably priced, and there's a bus you can ride for free around the downtown area. (The Pink Line- it does not go to the airport or to Pearl Harbor it's just around the shops downtown.)The not so good parts: it's pretty dated- tall people don't really fit in the shower, the bed was very small and the springs were super uncomfortable. The wall AC unit was very loud and when it was off we heard the neighbor coughing and the noise from the city. The pool is about the size of a hot tub. There were unavoidable steps to get to our room (ok we probably could have gotten an accessible room but we didn't think to ask.) I'm really not sure what the $20 resort fee covers but I get that most hotels here charge that extra fee when you arrive.Basically, if the price is right and you're not staying long it's probably ok. I do not recommend going over your budget for this hotel- "average" is generous but "poor" was too harsh. It's actually somewhere in between so we rounded up.
Nice hotel, comfortable room and good facilities. 4-5 minute walk to beach, but closer to shops. Ocean views from southern side of hotel and also a good view of the sunset. Public transport out front of hotel is another plus.
Stayed here with hubby and 2 kids for a week. Was pleasantly surprised as the lounge room doubled as the kids room with 2 single beds and we had our own room with a queen size bed. I just assumed we would all be in one room thinking it was a standard 'studio' room. Both rooms had an air con which could be adjusted and both rooms had a small flat screen TV. Staff were friendly, room was clean - cleaners were lovely and caring (the few times we bumped into them). Bathroom is small and shower spray on the weak side but clean and does the job. We were on level 9 which can be noisy from the street below but unable to hear your neighbors except for toilet flushes through the night which was really not an issue. 4 lifts, waiting was never a problem as they came down and went up pretty quick. Location was great, close to shops and beach. 10 min walk from Cheesecake Factory and right next door to IHOP and 2 mins away from Maccas. Would stay here again without issue.
We stayed here for a week in January. We did not have a car, but do expect to pay extra for parking privileges.What you need to know:1. While not on the beach, this hotel has a fabulous location. It's about 3 blocks from the beach and in easy walking distance to a myriad of restaurants and shopping.2. Attractive, comfortable, safe, clean, and budget friendly. And you will feel safe walking around the neighborhood day or night.3. Buses stop across the street and the front desk staff can tell you which one to take to places like Diamond Head and Pearl Harbor. You can buy 4-day bus passes and go all over the island.4. Best hotel coffee (in-room coffee maker); and, a mini-fridge is also provided.5. Internet signal is good; you pay for it via the resort fee, but this fee also includes unlimited rides on the Pink Line trolley.6. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.7. Bring your refillable water bottle as they have a great water dispenser in the pool area (beside the elevators).8. In room safes are available.
Rooms were pretty good which is the only thing saving this from turnin' into a 3 star review because that parking exit/entrance ramp is narrow. And, yes, ramp, singular - if you're leaving the first level, keep an eye out on your left for cars from the second level leaving on the same ramp. if you book this hotel buy insurance for your rental.
