I reviewed the other comments before I went there so we was prepared to ask for a room that was on the upper floors. I requested a room on the upper flr with a view to avoid the noise that you could here if you are on the lower levels with a view of the street. Our request was granted and we was on the 14th flr. We had a small beautiful view of some […] of the mountains and it was a full moon, lovely. It is in a good location walking distance from the beach, action and stores. The hotel also gives access for a free bus ride around the area. The staff was friendly, took care of our needs and I would return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not for a family, better for a partier."
The Hotel was clean. It is an older Hotel and it has been updated. The price was fair for the area. The noise level at night made it hard to sleep, we were awaken every night of our nine day stay. The parking garage was a night mare with 6 ft. ceilings and very tight corners, we didn't like the twenty dollar charge per day, for parking but expected […] it. We'll look at other options next time, hopefully away from Waikiki Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Honeymoon - two nights before cruise"
The room was clean and mostly comfortable....Perfect for a night or 2 and the staff were very helpful & friendly. This location was across the street from the city bus pick up which was very convienient!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Above and Beyond"
Staff were very friendly. Even the activities assistant was great helping us rent a car. They even let us keep our luggage there after we checked out and went to explore island..AND the offered a shower and room to change in after our hike, before our flight. To offer those ammenities AFTER you have checked out, is unheard of. We didnt fly out until […] 11pm, so that was so great to have them extend that offer. I would definitely stay here again..

good location, right in the middle of nightlight/shopping in waikiki. However, annoying one-way street entrance and difficult parking garage entrance may be an issue for some. Being so close to bars, noise may be an issue for guests as well. I'd like to take some time to commend Star, the parking attendant for always being cheerful and helpful to u […] s.

"Not what I expected"
The hotel looked good from the outside and in the lobby. The room was another story. It was shabby. The beds weren't comfortable. Definitely not a place to hang out. I did like the kitchenette but it needed a microwave. The location was central and the staff was friendly. The internet did not work which was a disappointment. The elevator was so slow […] that it was much easier to take the stairs. The hotel is in need of serious updating, at least in our wing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I asked before I booked about having a kitchnette mainly microwave. NO microwave as said to me, so call kitchen & sink is very compact. No paper towels. Very Very noisey. The parking for the $20.00 fee being charge is uncall for. Med size car can bearly fit & be able to get in & out of the car. Driving in & out of parking is very very poor. Also plugs […] for curling iron, blower & cell phone charger NONE available only for lights already plugged in. Not a pleasant place for me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best value in Waikiki - esp. for seasoned guests!"
This is a great place to stay if you know Waikiki well. Somehow it stays off the radar and gets mediocre ratings - probably from people who are expecting perfection and a view of the beach. But for Oahu-regulars, this place is hard to beat. It's close enough to the canal to take advantage of the free street parking (although the hunt for a spot will […] always be the biggest battle of the day...) yet close enough to walk to the beach or the MANY excellent restaurants nearby. For example Kimukatsu, a superb Japanese dining experience, just opened across the street from the hotel. From floor 11 and up, you get a great view of the ocean (and a great view of the Hilton fireworks on Friday and Saturday at 845pm...). Otherwise, although the views are not spectacular, the freshly updated rooms are very comfortable and the staff is outstanding. The only true problem with the hotel is the wonky elevator system... but after a while it becomes a somewhat charming annoyance that you accept as a tradeoff for the reasonable room rates. This place is probably the best value in Waikiki. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Malia, We would stay again."
The Malia was clean with a helpful staff and great location. The upper south side rooms have a nice view of the city and ocean. The north facing rooms look into the bedrooms of the Courtyard Marriott and the lower floor rooms are noisy. Stay as high as possible with a south facing room. Difficult parking garage and hot tub/pool not worth putting the […] trunks on for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok for a short stay"
Hotel bed was very big and i slept well. The hotel room was a bit darker than I would like however it was equipped with what i needed. The lifts are so old and very slow. The pool is not worth it, it's too small and maybe ok for kids only. There was one disappointing aspect that I will not forget. I left an art print in the room and went back within […] 30 minutes of checking out to get it as it was important. The housekeeper had already destroyed it and it was not retrievable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ohana Malia does not attempt to be fancy; there is no monumental architecture. But the desk staff was always warm and gracious and helpful, and the housekeeping staff friendly and efficient. The lanai is only big enough for one chair, but that was fine for a single person. The pool is laughably small, but guests are welcome to use the pools at Ohana […] West with an adjacent bar, and Ohana East which is larger still and open later in the evening. Ohana Malia's location is immediately across the street from The Bus stops, making a car unnecessary to visit museums, Chinatown, or Diamond Head. Even the onsite IHOP is surprisingly pleasant. Be forewarned that internet connections are slow in Waikiki, and Ohana's television offerings are paltry. But who wants to read email or watch tv in Hawai'i? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, Great Location"
We have stayed in many hotels in Waikiki and this motel should be rated with the bestGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Parking garage called at 10:30 pm"
The hotel is located at the central of the Wakiki. It's very convenient location. But the service is not that great. We got a call from the garage worker at 10:30 pm to ask us to pay the first day $20 parking immediately at the middle of our stay ( we pre-paid 10 days stay). He insisted that we have to go down stair to pay it right away or he is going […] to charge us $30 more ( for the mistake they made. ). It's very rude. When I asked him why he can't call us earlier instead of 11:00 pm to wake me up, he said it's only 10:30 pm and I am only doing my job. Never appologize for calling us at 10:30 pm to wake us up. When my husband went downstair to pay that $20 dollar parking for the first day parking, we just realize how messy is their parking system. We kind of glad to get that out of our way before receiving a huge parking bill for the parking we never used. The hotel charges $20 per night for parking is extremely unreasonable. It's very hard to drive up to ramp to the parking they have and there is $8 to $10 public parking next down or ddown the street. The room we had was in the back and close to lewer st. which is a bar located. We can almost hear the noise remotely every night from 11 floor. The room has a funny smell and at the end of our stay, the house keeper starts giving us older towels. We were out most of time except the last one or two days. I probably will give a better rating if the garage guy who didn't call us at 10:30 pm. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ohana Waikiki Malia - a better hotel than expected"
this hotel belongs to the Outrigger group and yet is one of the best in the area (Kuhio/Lewers) where the Beachwalk is and also in the center of shopping areas. the beach is only a 10-minute walk. the gay bars are just around the corner and a couple of blocks away. the International Market Place is only 3 blocks down. the rooms (Malia Tower) are well […] appointed. probably a little smaller in square footage, but it has a seating area and a small balcony to breathe fresher air. it is centralized air-conditioned. the higher floors are quieter than the lower floors. the staff are nice and warm. beds are always tidied-up. there is no room-service, but there is an IHOP next to the lobby and a sports bar as well. overall my stay in this hotel is more than satisfactory. i will stay there again on my next visit. i will also recommend this to my friends/family.

Overall I thought this stay was fine but I didn't like the way that they had the hotel on lock-down after hours. They were checking names and making it difficult to go to the room. Way overdone!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We loved staying at the Ohana Waikiki Malia. The room was very clean and comfortable. Maid service was outstanding and the front desk staff were terrific.

"Hotel itself is nice."
No doubt on this. But the elevator system is a little bit awkward. There are total three elevators and one button to stop one of those but only one elevator reaches to the parking area. It's like lottery. And road system of Waikiki is really a maze. Every street except Kuhio ave is one way, so you'll wander a lot if you try to reach there by driving. But […] like I said, hotel itself is nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ohana Malia Waikiki"
Recent renovations as well as a big, relaxing hot tub made my stay memorable. The staff was mostly friendly and the sports bar was modern with great happy hours. Bar tender and staff were extra friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Location very good as well. My only gripe was one of three elevators was not in operation and when an entire high school […] marching band showed up, it took hours to get up to my room. Good thing the bar is such a friendly place to kill time. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would most definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location of the hotel is fantastic for access to transit restaurants, beach and shopping. We found the front desk and staff very courteous, friendly and helpful. An Information booth located in the reception area was invaluable for information and getting directions on how to get to various sites just using the transit services.Carpets in our room […] had a few stains otherwise the room was very satisfactory.

"Competitive price and service"
Pros: (1) Price is good (2) Hotel front desk people were welcoming, when they are welcoming you feel like you have a place to ask your queries without hesitation; i.e., where to eat, what do they recommend for seeing, hotel amenities/facilities that you should be aware of ... (3) Nice and clean Cons: (1) Little bit of walk from sea shore (5-10 minutes […] depending on your walking speed) (2) Too much congested parking, ok for keeping it overnight. But think twice if you think about going in/out couple of times a day. My first time experience of such narrow (1 lane both way) parking in North America. Too much risky if you don't have damage waiver from your car rental company. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I was a pleasantly surprised with the hotels location. The room was clean and the lobby nice, but not huge. I liked the hot tub/jucuzzi especially after a climb to Diamond Head (which is only 20min bus ride cost $2.50) Perl harbour also $2.50 took about 45min on the bus. Free 15min call to US and Canada each time call as many times as you like. There […] is a small pool also. We had a good stay and would recommend it and stay again.
