The carpets were a dingy green if you walk barefoot on it the bottoms of your feet will be a dark brown. The room keys were not working and they wanted us to go walk to a security office to get some. The woman at the desk was very snappy and rude. I am surprised they hire people like that.... More

The location of the Hawaiian Monarch is good. It is only a 10-15 minute walk to the closest beach, and is right on the road out of town for other attractions. The hotel itself was rather run-down and could benefit from cleaner carpets and fresh paint. The car park was convenient, but you had to check in at the hotel... More

First time at this hotel. I've read several negative reviews but, keep in mind, you cannot expect Neiman Marcus service and quality when you pay Walmart prices. Checking in was a challenge. You're not allowed to park in the hotel's parking lot until you have registered and there is limited parking near the reception desk. Not unexpectedly, there was a... More

i've booked a room for three people and arrived later afternoon like normal guests. Our car was stopped outside the hotel with emergency lights on as it's not a parking area. Well, i then went to check in like the past 16 days that i was here in the State. The reception was rude and asked me to get other... More

We stayed here for Thanksgiving 2013 and enjoyed our stay. The hotel in conveniently located central to many attractions; Waikiki Beach; Ala Moana Center, and many more. The room was a tad outdated as are many others but had no complaints about the hotel itself. We are adventure and nature enthusiasts so we didn't stay in the room besides to... More

The hotel is in a great location that you might not beat for the price. Yes, it's a budget hotel but it's close to Waikiki and if you can't afford one of the big hotels then this is an option. The room I had was very dated and required maintenance asap but it was generally clean. Microwave, fridge and air... More

Older room but it was clean and comfortable. Good laundry facility and rooftop pool. Great pizza and bar downstairs. Convenience store, and two restaurants in the lobby. The parking is separate and cash only.

I've stayed in cheaper hotels than this one that were far cleaner! I guess box spring covers don't need to be cleaned EVER. Behind the toilet was disgusting, the lock box was rusting apart, and didn't even have a lock, and the entire carpet was so filthy it would take up too many pictures to show! But like I said,...

Stayed here last week. Room was okay, had fridge and microwave. Carpet needed a good cleaning (lots of stains), otherwise room was clean. Pool area was nice. A few blocks from the beach and downtown Waikiki. I'd stay here again.

We were disappointed with our recent stay at this hotel. The rugs were stained and dirty. The bath tub was chipping away and the tiles were stained and dirty. Would never stay here again, it was like the ghetto. The staff was not really helpful and it was not close to the beach. The online description of the hotel was... More
