"Not bad, not great, good hotel for the price"
For 2 nights this hotel was fine, I wouldn't say here longer than that. Positive: Excellent location. 2 blocks from the beach & right near good restaurants & bars. The staff was super friendly, rooms were clean, and the elevators required a key card access for security. Room also had a small balcony with a table & chairs, which was a good way to see […] the view and sit in the sun with morning coffee. Negative: The beds were not great & the shower was this weird little tiny closet like thing. If you are 6 foot plus or a larger person showering will probably be an adventure. To get ice, you had to get a bag from the front desk and use the ice machine in the lobby. The coffee shop was under renovations so we had to go down the street to get something other than the in-room stuff. I recommend the Ohana East to those looking for a bargain in a good location, who don't need fancy amenities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay with a great staff!"
The location is excellent. Only one block from the beach. The staff was excellent. We had a late departure and they allowed us to use a hospitality room to clean up before the flight. The manager Denise made a special trip to the airport to return my daugher's kindle that the bellman had dropped and was found before we departed. The room was clean and […] had a small fridge. The pool was a pleasant surprise. Truly the staff was the absolute best. When you add the great location, we could not have asked for more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would definitely stay here again!"
The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our check in and check out was very fast. The hotel was in a very good location - close to the beach, MANY restaurants, and shopping. Everything was within walking distance but if you wanted to explore more the island, you should rent a car but be advised, there is a daily parking rate. They give […] a military discount on daily parking fee though. The room was very clean and a good size. The housekeeping staff, especially Cecilia, was very courteous and gave us things that we asked for such as extra shampoo, cream and sugar, etc. If you happen to need to do laundry, there is a coin operated laundry in the hotel. Our room didnt have any fancy bells and whistles like a hot tub or flat screen TV but we werent planning on lingering in our hotel room all day anyway so we didnt mind at all. There is no continental breakfast included BUT there are TONS of other restaurants close by to eat at. The other reviews Ive read about this hotel complained about street noise - just get a room on a higher floor. We personally had no issues with street noise but we were pretty close to the top. We complained about our noisy next door neighbors (they were just talking really loud and it was about midnight) so we called the front desk staff. They promptly asked them to be quiet and problem was solved!!! Staff is GREAT! We are definitely staying at Ohana East on our next visit to Hawaii! Overall a GREAT place to stay.

The first complaint we had was that the room we paid for was a two double bed room. We arrived and were placed in a single bed room. The bed was a double, not a queen or King size. We complained and were placed in another room. The beds in that room were so hard it felt like we were sleeping on boards. The springs were so old it sounded like bamboo […] snapping when we rolled over. One other thing... $25.00 a day to park a rental car in an all ready established parking lot? C'mon people.

"Great location but room lacked luster and comfort."
The front desk staff was nice upon check in and let us in early. The room was clean enough, but dated. The air conditioner was noisy and needed maintenance and the bed was hard. The hotel is in a good location with easy beach access.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean, functional hotel in central Waikiki."
The Ohana East is located centrally in Waikiki and is 1 block from the beach. The rooms are clean and equipped in a standard hotel fashion.

"Tired hotel in an excellent location"
The main comments by most reviewers is spot on... The hotel has an excellent location and depends on that fact alone to keep booked full. I reserved two rooms through Expedia, one with two double beds and the other with a king bed. But the hotel did not honor the room arrangements. Instead, we were given one room with a queen bed and another with a […] king and a dreadfully uncomfortable sofa sleeper. Fortunately, we were there for only one night before leaving for a beach house we rented through another on-line service. The rooms at Ohana East were small, dank and the beds uncomfortable. The shower is a tight fit for large or tall adults. On the plus side, the staff at the front counter and the outside bellhop were friendly and helpful. Otherwise, our experience would warrant a one-star rather than a two-star rating. The location is also worth consideration. If you plan to party on the beach and don't care about anything other than a firm bed and a shower in the morning, this place will suit you fine. But if you're looking for an experience that adds (rather than subtracts) from being in Ohau, look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by OHANA East Aloha David, Mahalo for your review on Expedia your comments are greatly appreciated. As for the bedding when you booked is a request not guaranteed, and although we do try and meet all the guest request there are times, when we are running full house and therefore we cannot guarantee your bedding and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We do appreciate the fact that you mentioned our staff were very helpful and friendly. Island Regards, OHANA Waikiki East Hotel Management
"Great Value-Great Location"
Location is wonderful! Hotel room was VERY clean--had no complaints with that. As far as kitchennette-don't have too many expectations about that though--it only had a small fridge-no microwave or anything else. Furnishings were a little dated but for the price and location this is a solid value for Waikiki. Not beach front but close enough to easily […] walk there everyday. Very close to all things in Waikiki and they also allow the Pink Trolley rides for free if you show your room key, which will take you within Waikiki area as far as Ala Moana Center (which I highly recommend if you like to shop!). Meals can be pretty pricey in Honolulu/Waikiki so if you are a family there is a McDonald's around the corner and pricing is similiar to your local McDonalds. Fine dining is pretty pricey (around $100 for 2 adults 1 child at Dukes in Outrigger Waikiki) but I do highly recommend Dukes. My husband said the fresh fish in the Macadamia/Parmesan Crust was the best he ever had and it appears to be the least expensive for a beach front restaurant. Very casual but nice atmosphere. While in Waikiki make sure to walk down to Hilton Hawaiian Village (about a mile or mile and a half) to see the Friday night Fireworks beachfront-which is free. This was one of the best fireworks and it is a great atmosphere and fun for all. They have many restaurants (pricey though) or you can have drinks beachside and also shops you can walk thru before or after. Had a wonderful time here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by OHANA East Aloha DeeMc, Mahalo for your response on Expedia regarding your recent stay with us at the OHANA Waikiki East Hotel. We are equally happy to hear your room was very clean as our housekeepers take pride in their work. In regards to your commenst about the kitchenette not having a microwave we are not sure how you were booked as all of our kitchenettes come with either a micorwave oven a hotplate or both. Dukes is a great restaurant liked by the locals as well as the visitors from all over the world. We have to agree the hotel is close to everything and the free use of the Pink Line Trolley is an added plus. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time in Hawaii and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Island Regards, OHANA Waikiki East Hotel Management
Hotel is in a great location - short walk to shopping and restaurants in Waikiki. The staff are friendly and responsive.However, two things that need serious upgrading:: The beds are horrible - very hard and difiicult to sleep on - no give at all!

"A room with a view"
The desk staff was very helpful, pleasant & worked hard to ensure check in & out was smooth. The cleaning staff is on task. The shower at first seemed small due to angle inside was fine. There needs another shelf by soap dish to set shampoo & conditioner. The workout room is clean, small & a little tired yet does have precor. Never had to wait for a […] machine. Parking was a breeze coming & going. A grocery store with little foodie places across the street saves money & Keone downstairs has good food at good price. The view was amazing & enjoyed sitting on patio especially at night with the lights. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Don't stay here"
We knew we were getting a cheap hotel but never imagined our bed to be that bad. Don't stay here if u have a bad back. Our first room you could feel the springs on the bed and could barely get into the bathroom. We switched rooms. The next room was more spacious but again the bed was horrible. We tried asking if we could switch hotels for our last 2 […] nights as my husband has a really bad back ( actually a medical condition). The manager refused. Will not stay here again!

"A great place for seniors"
This was our second stay at the Ohana East. We were initially given a queen bedded room even though we had requested a king bedded room. The front desk cheerfully moved us to a king bedded room that also happened to have a kitchenette which was very nice. The bathrooms are small - shower only - no tub, but they clearly state that on their web page. […] The hotel is very clean, and nicely appointed. The bed was firm and comfortable. The air conditioning worked VERY well - so well that we kept it turned to the low setting. I noticed that the hot water in the shower tended to be warm water in the early evening so it's probably best to shower in the late afternoon after a day at the beach. The hot tub was great but no one was using the pool during our stay because it was so cold. The Ohana East is a short walk from the main drag along Waikiki beach and easy access to TheBus for around the island transportation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great vacation hotel that did not break the bank!"
We took a cruise to Hawaii and decided to stay in Oahu 3 extra days. Chose this hotel based on the reviews of others. Thanks to all those who took the time to review this hotel. It was a great find and a great value.! We would stay there again. We arrived eartly from the ship and the hotel did it's best to get us into our rooms before the true check-in […] time. The hotel staff were friendly and the bell staff were most helpful. The room was spacious with a balcony and it was always clean thanks to the cleaning staff. It had a laudramat around the corner that the couple we were traveling with used. It was within walking distance to Waikiki and the International Market Place. There was a car rental place across the street and the hotel had a free pink shuttle that traveled to many touristy places. Safety was not an issue since the elevator did not work without a room key.

"OK but terrible housekeep., false room description"
The room is advertised as having a king bed, but this hotel does not have any king-sided kitchenette rooms. The management said that the king bed is a preference, and is not honored by the hotel. The bed was also extremely old and uncomfortable. The housekeeping does not understand what "do not disturb" means and try to come in to clean the room. Housekeeping […] also lost or threw out a few of our personal toiletries that were clearly not to be thrown out.

Perfectly good 3* hotel - not luxurious but clean and adequately equipped. You are unlikely to be in Hawaii to sit around your hotel room, so as a base for sleeping it was excellent. The location is great, a mere two blocks from the beach and near everything else in Waikiki. The staff, too, were helpful. On my first night, I ended up in a room right […] by the elevator. This was perhaps the one negative since the walls are thin and the noise of the elevators going up and down was deafening. I am not usually particularly bothered by noise but this was excessive. I asked to be moved to another room and the following day they could accommodate that for the rest of my stay and did so with grace. Overall, a great place to base oneself in Waikiki.
