“Business like hotel near the airport”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

The best thing about the hotel is it's vicinity to the airport and it's airport shuttle.

Very unattractive, industrial area. No choice in restaurants nearby.
Endless corridors, implying very long walks to the rooms.
Room is ok.

Only advisable for a 1 night stay after a late arrival at the airport (or early departure).

I agree with all the reveiws everyone has written about this airport hotel. The only thing I would like to add that you may find useful is that there is a strip mall full of eateries (even a starbucks) just down the road that cannot be seen from the hotel.
Walk out the main entrance of the hotel, turn left to the side street, then walk about a block.

This was an in transit stay for me and my 14 month old daughter. We were traveling from Australia to the USA and then back again, so we stayed two nights. It was recently updated at the time and the air conditioning was nice and cold while it was very hot and humid outside (coming from our coldest month in Australia, we could feel the Hawaii summer). I was pleased all around and found it to be the 3 stars that it's rated. Only hassle was needing to take a shuttled to the Best Western for our evening meal, but the buffet there was nice! On the way home we opted for pizza delivered to the room. I am contemplating staying here again when we take another trip to the USA, this time as hubby will be with us we will stay a few days and see a little of Honolulu. Oh and the elevator was a bit on the old side.

This is a tired, older hotel, but the closest to the airport in Honolulu. Check in was a little slow - without any reason. The room was spacious, but dated, although everything worked and it was well cleaned. The restaurant was closed (at least much of the time) when I stayed there - but they had some arrangement to take people to a nearby hotel to eat. Getting to and from the airport still requires catching their free shuttle - although the half hour wait for this can be frustrating. Next time, I think I'll stay in Waikiki, and get up a little earlier...

There are not that many hotels available around the airport, so in order to catch an early morning flight, I decided to give this hotel a try on the last day of my trip. Prior to that, I was staying at one of the many hotels along Waikiki. I didn't rent a car for this trip, so I relied purely on public transportation. The bus 19/20 took me from the airport to Waikiki, to Ala Moana Shopping Center, and then back to the airport hotel, which is along the way.
The hotel itself is nothing special, reminded me of a stereotypical motel along any mainstream freeway. I reserved a room with one bed, but was given one with two beds. Poor lighting in the room, particulaly when the only light fixture that worked was the one in the corner of the room. Bedside lamps and the one overhead was not working. The clock was not working, and the remote control was not working either. Thank goodness the A/C was working for it was a hot and humid evening. Further along the evening a couple other guests tried to get inside my room, so unfortunately they had to go back to the lobby for another room assignment. I didn't try the restaurant on site for I had dinner in downtown Honolulu prior to check in, and it was too early for breakfast the following morning prior to my flight. There isn't much to do in the neighborhood. There is ample parking as I saw it. I guess if you only wanted a decent bed with a clean bathroom close to the airport, then this place should suffice. However, for 30 dollars more, you can get a nicer and bigger room along Waikiki. Had my flight leave later during the day, I would not have picked this hotel to stay at.

We fly direct from NJ to HI and learned to fly in a day early and plan an overnight in case flight is delayed. Good Value, great breakfast, friendly service. The room is adequate, was clean, and everything worked just fine. The free shuttle from the airport saves you the cost of parking and renting a car. Even though 1/2 mile from the airport, very quiet at night. Will definitely stay here next time we travel to HI.

The Ohana Honolulu Airport Hotel was perfect for our stopover on the way home to a outer-island after arriving late from Los Angeles. The room was clean with an air-conditioner that worked well (it wasn't too noisy, but did drown out the freeway traffic noise). The bathroom was also clean with matching bath accessories - towel racks, toilet paper holder, sink faucet handle, and curtain rods. I did notice that each floor had a laundry room with a coin operated washer and dryer - a valuable touch for families or guests on longer trips. Breakfast at the Willoughbys Restaurant was
excellent, as well as the service. The on the hour and half hour shuttle service to the various terminals was very reliable - there were no long waits either at being picked up from the airport or at being taken to the correct terminal. I would definitely stay here again under the same circumstances.
