Dirty, smelly, inadequate. Will not reccomend and resent being cheated of hard earned money I could not get back. Want refund. Not worthy of international standards.hi would expect at least the quality of a cheap chain.

Clifford at front desk was fantastic...paying for parking and Wifi separately was such an inconvenience and its a wonder the actual hotel price was cheap because the cost of the parking daily and wifi made up for it and therefore it was not cheap at all. The air con was loud and noisy throughout the night. The ladies at recep... More

The hotel needs to come into the 21st century; carpets need to be replaced; bathrooms need to be updated; overall hotel sadly in need of a facelift. WiFi not working and one staff member needed an attitude adjustment

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 The room was a tad outdated as are many others but had no complaints about the hotel itself.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.
