“A good location - but beware the tour desk.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We stayed for five nights on our way to the west coast USA and returned for one night on our return journey. We had kitchenette rooms both times which enabled us to provide our own meals from the nearby small shops. The rooms were clean, light and had quite good views. Reception staff were helpful, but the tour desk actually works with a "resort" company - Windham - who will try to snare you into a "free" breakfast and sales pitch talk. Be warned.

Room Tip: Rooms with kitchens are positioned on the corners of the building, so you get views from two sides...

This hotel is one block from the beach and all it has to offer.
The place is a little dated, which is fine with us. The rooms were clean and quite and the beds were very comfortable.
The front desk was very helpful and kind, giving us great information to make our short stay more memorable and efficient.
We were on the sixth floor which provided us a small peak at the ocean. A higher floor might have offered better views.
There is no breakfast here but if you don't eat much, you can pick up some breakfast type food and keep in it the room's frig for morning. We did.
Parking is not valet but is right at the hotel, for $25 a day.

I'm back at the Ohana East, a block and a half from the beach, with great friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of.

I had a longer stay this trip and they bumped me to a nicer room, without cost.

These people know how to take care of their guests.

My daughter and I stayed at the Ohano East earlier this year and was extremely happy with our room. We arrived early and managed to get an early check-in thanks to the wonderful helpful staff on Reception. We had a cityview room with two double beds on the 12th floor with views of the ocean. The room was spacious, clean and had a large bathroom with a full bath. The location was excellent and found the free access to the Pink Trolley a bonus. It was also very handy to be so close to the Supermarket across the road. Definate value for money here. I have since recommended this hotel to friends and family. Close to beach, shops and great resturants. We are returning in January with the family and will be staying at one of your other properties, Outrigger on the Reef only due to the fact that your family rooms are fully booked.

The staff at this hotel are friendly and always willing to help. the rooms are clean and there is daily maid service. The food in the little restaurant on the ground floor does great food. If I had one critisism, the pool does not get much sun, but in the heat over there, that maybe a good thing.

We have stayed in this wonderful hotel located in a busy corner of Waikiki in Sept of 2009, July of 2013, and Sept of 2013. It is located right across the street from the famous Kings Alley shopping center. Rooms are clean, decorated with the normal Hawaiian resort feeling. Front desk and Housekeeping staff were attentive and full of the aloha spirit. By the second and third times we were like Ohana and treated accordingly. Rooms normal for Waikiki, not huge but comfortable,bed firm and clean, bath room small, shower even smaller but functional. Room comes with the normal bath amenities, also coffee pot with coffee for a cup in the morning. Small working refrigerator in all rooms. On our last trip we had arranged for a room with a kitchenette. Kitchenette rooms are located in the corners of each floor, wonderful mountain views, and great price. I believe the property is a nonsmoking property. Parking is located on property( for a daily fee), entrance to lot is on the third floor which makes it very convenient and safe. Garage door opens right into the lobby where front desk and elevators are located. Restaurant downstairs, and front area of the hotel is on a corner which opens to Kuhio avenue which has lots of restaurants and shops. Hotel is a block and a half from the famous Waikiki beach. Prices reflect that. Will stay here for sure for all trips to Honolulu.

Stayed in a room with two double beds for three nights. The room was a bit dated but clean. The bathroom shower area was very small and at times you could hear your neighbour moving around. Had reasonable views of Waikiki and the water. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is well located near the main street, shops and restaurants. Went to the small restaurant next door for breakfast which was ok. Overall the hotel was ok but would probably stay somewhere else next time.

Room Tip: Try and get a high room for a better view.
