I've been staying at ohana malia every time I visit for the past six years and enjoy it every timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
This was my third trip to honolulu this year, and third hotel. This one was by far the best for its price range. Very clean and updated rooms. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Very pleased.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't wait to go back"
The front desk staff wasn't very friendly..no greeting on arrival or thank you when departing. But, I thought it was a very comfortable hotel and convenience for shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ohana Waikiki Mailia - Close to shopping and beach"
The hotel is in the middle of the Waikiki beach shopping area and a couple of blocks from the beach. The staff were helpful, the room clean. Our room was on the 18th floor and you could still hear all of the street noise. I guess that's to be expected considering the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stopping ground"
Came in late, and all was in perfect order for us. Clean good parking, great location with convenience on every corner. Pleasant staff. Quiet. Great spot for the price! I would stay again and actually use the kitchenette. Aloha!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
Pros to this hotel: Great location, walking distance to everything in Waikiki. Staff was friendly, especially the parking attendants. However the biggest issue I have is that the rooms - or at least our room - looked nothing like the pictures on here. We were put in the "Luana" wing, so I'm not sure if the other tower has better rooms or not. After […] getting off the elevator we had to go outside to get to our room door. Our room was very old, much like a run-down budget motel. The bed was hard. Weird set-up with a sliding door to a lanai that was shared by the other rooms on our floor, which didn't exactly make me feel safe. The air conditioner worked great but was terribly loud. If we were staying any longer than 2 nights, and needed our room for anything other than just a place to sleep, it would not have been acceptable. Parking is also challenging with very narrow spots and ramps, kind of a concern bringing a rental car in there. We got a great rate but next time I will pay more to stay somewhere a little nicer.

"ohana waikiki malia"
easy walk to beach, we hike on a fairly regular schedule at home, and walked from the ohana to thebeach down the beach to the war memorial and then thru the park and up to diamond head, to the top. and back thru residential nieborhoods to the ohana. a slow and meandering pace --7hrs--get a map of the area as we did not see any street signs that helped--the […] bus system is crouded but just fine-- seniors with medicare card only a buck, great deal, you can go where-ever you want onthe bus.--we used roberts of hawaii for the circle island tour and were not disapointed,we had cousin dave for our driver and we were thoroughly intertained and informed.

"A Honolulu Experience"
If you want to stay in the heart of Honolulu then the Ohana Malia is a nice homely hotel where the staff are very helpful, always smiling and greet you whenever you come in or go out. The only inconvenience is the parking area. Very tight drive in and drive out...it's a squeeze ! Lovely restaurants nearby represent all cuisine. Within a stone's throw […] are the shops - you name the brand and they are right there. Indeed a happy experience in Honolulu ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Ohana Waikiki Malia - overall a good hotel."
I stayed at the hotel for three nights and overall it was a good experience. Pros: The staff was friendly, nice, and helpful. The hotel was clean. The room was spacious. The room rates were really reasonable. The hotel is within walking distance of shops and stores. There is an IHOP connected to the hotel. Cons: I know this is a matter of opinion […] but in mine the beds were way too firm. My room was above the street and even with the patio door closed you can still hear a lot. There were lots of sirens (ambulance, police, etc). Overall, I had a pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"planning to stay there again."
Recently stayed at the Malia April 29 - May 6, completely satisfied, price is right, location is perfect, friendly staff. Sorry for those unsatisfied customers if it did not meet your expectations but this is my second time to stay at this Hotel, before and after renovation, both times were comfortable. My husband had stayed at 4-5 star hotels in Waikiki […] before but we love Malia best, it's convinient, why spend big money on hotels if you just need a place to sleep and hang out in your own privacy.

"Close to the mainstreet but room condition is bad"
The location is awesome and so close to the Waikiki but the room inside was too small and tiny so if you wanna a bigger place with same price choose somewhere else! If you don't mind the room size this hotel has a really good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Deal for the location. Hotel needs to be updated though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for the price"
The rooms were clean and a good size for 2-4 people to fit comfortably. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the building was clean and up to date. Not the prettiest hotel on the island but in my opinion was great for the price. We were only in the room long enough to sleep and shower and it was more than sufficient. The only complaint I have […] was that the beds were very uncomfortable for my friend and I. We had two queens that were large enough, but they were hard beds that felt like sleeping on box springs. Everything else was great! I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is an OLD hotel"
In general I am not unhappy with my stay or am I to disappointed. The hotel was old. My room was worn and smelled mildly of mold which I was not happy about. However I did enjoy he size of the room. Internet was not available in the room as advertised by the hotel. Location is great right in the middle of Waikiki. Good luck on your vacation!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, Great service"
The room was clean. The bed was huge and very comfortable. You can get to the beach by walking. A bus stop is conveniently located in front of and across the hotel. The Bus is a great and affordable way to get around the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they called a cab for me so I could catch my flight on time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful two weeks at Honolulu. We toured the Island and used transit to many other sights. The girl that serviced our room did an excellent job and was very kind and courteous. She gets a star. Everyone made our trip a pleasure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
OKAY FOR ONE NIGHTGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed twice as we cruised the islands between stays. Second room in better repair than first room. Couldn't fault the staff, especially the front of house staff, who always did more than expected!! Plus we were checked in early on both occasions which was an added bonus. We were in the older wing but rooms still more than adequate, with comfy pillows. […] A little walk from the main area but this was not problematic & probably kept things a little quieter overnight. Would have liked lockable screen doors on the lanai rather than having to sleep under aircon every night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by OHANA Waikiki Malia Aloha and Mahalo for your four star review! We are especially grateful for the positive comments regarding our staff as it is a sign of reaching our goals in customer service. The Aloha Spirit is powerful and something that we strive to meet on a daily basis. I am happy that we were able to check you in early as we are not always able to do that. Our Luana Wing is older but we are glad that you found it adequate. Thank you for your suggestion regarding lockable screen doors. We will add this to our wish list for future renovations. Thank you again for your review. We look forward to welcoming you back one day. Mahalo, Nora Weatherwax General Manager
"Good location and friendly staff"
Loved the location of this hotel. No need to rent a car. Bus stop and trolley stop are right outside the hotel. Housekeeping staff did an excellent job. Tour agent in the lobby is super helpful. Pool is very small, but who needs the pool when you are 5 minutes away from Waikiki beach. It can be a bit noisy during weekends (even at 3am). Must try the […] Japanese udon place (5 minutes walk on Kuhio St.) Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by OHANA Waikiki Malia Aloha and Mahalo for your five star review! Thank you first of all for your positive comments regarding our housekeeping staff and tour agent in the lobby. It is very rewarding to read and pass on to our employees. Yes, our pool is small but we were limited in the amount of space in which to build one. You are right, though when you say we are only 5 minutes away from beautiful Waikiki beach. Please accept our apology in regards to the noise factor on the weekends. We are working with all involved to monitor that closer. Again, thank you for your feedback. Mahalo, Nora Weatherwax General Manager
Loved this hotel, great location, great sports bar with very friendly staff. Only disappointment was the small balcony and lack of sun around the pool. Having said that would stay at this hotel again. Had a great holiday..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good mid range hotel. A couple of blocks from the beach but isn't a problem because you can window shop on the way. The room was situated off an outside walkway and had direct access to the garage which was handy for us. There was a small balcony off the main bedroom with the kitchen and bathroom between the lounge area and bedroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach and shopping, restaurants"
Very good, we would recommend this hotel to others. The king size bed was terrific and the security was very comforting. A short walk to the beach, shopping and eateries made it super convenient for us. Even used our free call to Canada to talk to our aging parents. Would recommend wi-fi in each room as instant communication is now a fact of life.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, it was a great experience. The staff were very helpful and the location is right where you want to be. Perfect for access to all Waikiki has to offer.Genuine Expedia guest review
While location was good, it was noisy from the traffic to people shouting in the street. The room was comfortable and clean but again the outside noise meant we could not get a good night's sleep. The hotel service people were great and friendly and hotel guests rode free on the pink trolly bus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"In transit to Kailua"
We got in late around 8pm. Parking was convenient and check in instantaneous. Our room was perfect for us and the bed comfy. We went & walked Waikiki for an hour or so before crashing. We both slept great. Realising our location is high traffic and potentially noisy, it didn't affect our stay one bit. Ohana Malia is a great location for people on the […] go who are not bothered by big city environment. We will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location and that;s it!!"
We had no issues with the cleanliness and location of the hotel however that's where it stopped. We had major concerns with the elevators. On a number of days all three elevators weren't working at some point in time which is very disconcerting when you're located on the 18th floor - the top floor - and you're not able to leave when you want to and […] then the rides you do have are frightening - it felt like you were taking your life into your own hands using them as they jerked considerably and bottom of elevators didn't match up with floors to the extent people were tripping. While the room itself was adequate the bathroom was extremely small with very limited room to move around. The pool and spa area was disappointing. Unfortunately only one sachet of coffee was provided per day so not even the option of decaffeinated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by OHANA Waikiki Malia Aloha, Thank you for submitting your review. It is good to read that you did not have issues with the cleanliness and location of our property. Please accept our apology for the performance of our elevators during your stay. We do have four elevators that service our Malia Tower and one elevator that services our Luana Wing and our Malia Tower up to the 10th floor. We have been working with our elevator service to eliminate the problems you experience. Our pool and spa area was built just over a year ago. We were so excited to finally have this available even though we were limited in the amount of area in which to put them in. I apologize for not having decaffeinated coffee in your room. Decaffeinated coffee is available upon request. Thank you again for your review. We appreciate your comments. Mahalo, Nora Weatherwax, General Manager

"Great stay at the Malia. Friendly staff..."
We stayed there over the weekend for one night and was very pleased with the hotel and service. We had moved from another hotel and tried to check in early. With an infant with us we requested an earlier check in so we can still make it a full day for us. Thankfully when we arrived at 11:30 they had already gotten us a room way ahead of schedule (3pm […] check in time). 17th floors on the ocean side. Although it wasn't a king size bed as we requested the 2 double beds were just fine. Room was clean, view was awesome and the location is very central. You're right beside the Duty Free Shop where the trolleys arrive. The only thing it could have had would have been a half kitchen but it wasn't a big deal as we only had 1 night there.

"Good Stay at the Malia"
The Malia is a short walk to the beach- about 3 blocks. There was a free shuttle around Waikiki for hotel guests.There are lots of places to eat nearby.Staff told us about public transportation which wa a convenient way to visit Hanauma Bay for snorkeling. WE were able to arrange outings , such as to a luau in the front lobby. The hotel was quiet. We […] were in a room near the elevator and could at times hear people, but access toour floor was restricted to keyholders so it was quiet. We had a kingsized bed, which was comfortable.

"Awesome Time In Honolulu"
I booked this hotel based on the past reviews and how good they were. We were looking for a hotel that was within walking distance to Waikiki beach, shopping and restaurants. Well, that's exactly what this hotel offers within walking distance. It's 3 blocks from the beach front at Fort Derussy area. It's a block away from the Royal Hawaiian Shopping […] mall and the Waikiki Beach walk. We travelled as a family of 4 so we needed a queen bed and 2 twin beds and that' exactly what our room had for us, a 1 bedroom kitchenette. The fridge was really good and kept your food cold. Our room was cleaned everyday for us and the hotel provided clean fresh towels for the beach for you to use. They also provided luggage storage and a hospitality suite to use if you had a late flight, and which we did, so we were glad that we could take advantage of these nice added touches. We would stay at the Malia again, it was really great!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

免税店の裏にあるので立地は言うことなし。ホテルは古い。掃除は雑なのか、お風呂場には髪の毛が落ちていたり、コーヒーサーバーを使用したのに、掃除の後部屋に戻るとサーバーが汚れたままだった。値段が安いので仕方ないのかも。フロントのスタッフなどは感じがよい。同じ建物にあるアイホップへは階段が必ずあるのでベビーカーで移動する人には大変かも。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
