Nice room over all. But....no microwave and the refrigerator barely worked at all. However the housekeeping staff on the 6th floor was great. They even left extra coffee packets when asked. Furniture is island style, but seemed dated.

I stayed at the OHANA Waikiki East Hotel for two days during a recent trip to Hawaii with my wife. We had a nice room on the 15th floor, facing the beach. The hotel was clean and well-decorated.

Room was small, as was the restroom. However, if you're the type of person who doesn't spend much time in a hotel room and just want something reasonably priced and clean in the Waikiki area, this would be a great choice. I'd spring for the ocean view-well worth it. Ask for a room from the 15th floor up, as there's... More

My room was located on the 15th floor. There was an express elevator close to the main desk which made for easy access to the room. A plus in my book!
