Good enough for me!
My mom and I travel to Oahu every few years, and this will be the third year that we have stayed in this hotel. Since we don't spend much time in the room, it is perfect for us. We catch some sleep, take a quick shower and we are on the go again. We love to walk downtown and to the beach, so the location is not a problem for us. Overall, this place is clean, comfortable, safe, and convenient - and all for a great price. I highly recommend!
Near Beach - Great Location!
GREAT LOCATION! I stayed here in Nov '03. checked into 3 other Ohana hotels that were really disgusting and after walking around i found this one. rooms were clean, but the wall were a little thin. the TGI Friday's that is connected tot he hotel lobby was EXCELLENT!
I was able to walk to the beach in approx 5-10 mins. and didn't have to worry about all the other beach traffic.
was in honolulu for a conference at the hawaii convention centre- stayed at the skycourt for 8 days (3/6-3/13). nice & convenient location... although the beach is some distance away. there are several good eating places around the hotel location. the room i shared with a friend was rather small- the 2 single twin beds filled up almost the entire room! bathroom is small but functional. if you're not planning on staying in the hotel much 'cept for taking baths and getting sleep, i'd recommend this place... it's quite reasonably priced for what they provide. on the whole, i was quite satisfied with their service and they made my trip a memorable one.
Nice Hotel for the Money
My wife and I take several trips a year to Oahu. We stayed at the Ohana Maile Sky Court for seven nights in May 2003. We have stayed in a lot of different hotels in the Waikiki area and if your are looking for just a basic hotel that is clean and comfortable this hotel is it. The rooms are small but the beds are comfortable. The bus stops right across the street from the hotel, and will take you anywhere in Oahu you want to go. Its a nice place to stay without spending a lot of money for a hotel room. Steve
Small and cozy
We stood there for 6 nights December 12, 2003. Rooms are pretty small but clean, bathroom is extremely small, I'm 5 feet tall and found my way around it, but my boyfriend 6 feet tall found it very small. We don't have any complaints about the hotel, except for the elevators, one time we waited about 8-10 minutes for one to come down, it's probably due to the numerous floors levels in the hotel. TGIF downstairs, the pool gets a lot of shade, the activities desk people are very nice. There is a convenience store downtairs, and everywhere else, Waikiki beach is a short walk away, fine dining too. Good budget hotel just keep in mind rooms and bathroom are small.
Not bad; here are my thoughts
I stayed at the Ohana between Dec. 4 and 6 for a nationwide conference that was actually taking place at the nearby Hilton Hawaiian Village.
The hotel is in easy walking distance of the Hilton, Sheraton, and several other nearby resorts. At $55-65 night, the price is easily $100/night cheaper than the name-brand hotels nearby but the rooms at the Ohana are Spartan yet efficient. The room I was in was a double measuring about 9x16 including the bathroom but there is just enough space. You will need a room key to use the elevators for access to rooms above level five. Though the elevators are slow and parking is VERY cramped, the TGI Fridays in the hotel complex is not too pricey given the rest of the island. The staff was friendly though very direct. The hotel does not have many amenities for children and is about three blocks from the beach. There is a pool though I did not use it. Overall, not a bad hotel, just make sure you know what to expect. I would definitely stay there again if another conference comes up in Honolulu.
Small rooms, grimy - nuff said
We stayed at the Ohana Skycourt in April of 2003. We found the staff to be cheerful until a problem arose. Then they turn surly.
The rooms are cramped and dingy. The elevator is a dinosaur.
They throw you out early on your last day, saying that you can enjoy the beach and return for a shower in a facility on the ground floor.
This is a lie and a set up. They just want your money and for you to move along.
Not a fun experience. Look elsewhere.
Comfortable and affordable
We stayed at this hotel for two nights. It is located a short walk for the ocean, about three blocks. It has lovely shops and several very nice restaurants within walking distance (two block area) and is located in downtown Honolulu just a short way from Waikiki Beach. We found that the rooms are basic and very clean with comfortable beds, plus security floors where you need your door card to access the floor you are going to. Nice views of Honolulu. We were impressed with the knowledge of the staff and their friendliness. We needed a cab first thing in the morning so upon arriving at the front desk, one was called and it arrived in just ONE minute! Since we were not spending a lot of time in our room, this was perfect for us!
Lift is extremely slow.
Room is small and so-so.
Reception wasn't very too friendly.
I stayed on high floor and view was great (though a little far away) for that money.
If you are looking for a nice hotel, forget it.
If you are looking for an ocean view for this kind of money, recommended.
Good Economy Hotel
Since this was my first trip to Hawaii and I was by myself, I didn't want to go overboard in the price department. The Maile Sky Court fit the bill perfectly. It is close to the Wakiki strip and is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The room was a std. on the 21st floor facing the ocean. I paid $69 + tax a night. The view was excellent and I was away from the street noise. The elevators are a little slow. But, I wasn't in a hurry. The parking was $8.00 a night for the rental car. Access to the major street was easy. The amenities were decent. Friendly staff and prices in the bar were reasonable.
The drawbacks are, it is about a 15 minute walk or more to the beach (depending on what part of Wakiki you want to be on) and the pool/spa are on the shady side of the hotel. Stay away from the sundries shop. The prices are high. You can get stuff cheaper at the ABC store across the street.
TGIF is located downstairs and has a really good bacon cheese burger and chocolate malt. Other eateries, both inexpensive and premium prices, are within walking distance.
All in all, my stay at the Sky Court was pleasant and I would recommend it to anyone travelling on a budget. If you want to stay on the beach, I would recommend a sister hotel called the Outrigger Wakiki. But, you will pay beach prices($220 on up). Aloha
