I'm from Hawaii and travel a lot staying in hotels, even in Waikiki, so believe me when I say that this is one of Waikiki's worst hotels and you should stay elsewhere. For the same price you can stay at the Ohana Waikiki East which is a much nicer budget hotel closer to the action. All the bad reviews about... More

We rented a condo at this hotel and the location was really good as it was close to the downtown stores and restaurants. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the beach. Wehad the condo 3406, which had a great view of the canal and a bit of the ocean. The rooms were clean but one of them was really... More

We rented a condo in this hotel through Vrbo "home away" the only reason I give this hotel a 2.5 is because of the condo we occupied and the location. The hotel section is not somewhere I would stay. Location is ideal for many walk to destinations and beach. Our condo unit 3406 A,B was great, clean and had everything... More

Worst Hotel/Hostel experience I've ever had anywhere in the world! The Hawaiian Monarch is primarily a low end apartment building that's selling some rooms nightly as a hotel. The website is pure false advertising and is extremely misleading. -Paint peeling off everything, -Musty stained carpet -Sunken mattresses with stained linens -Bed Bugs -19" tube TV with broken buttons and partially...

Horrible parking area not part of the hotel, no security they only take cash. Horrible service. The room is bad, Dirty carpets, old smells like mildew. Shower and sink are disgusting. Faucet has holes, Very old furnisher , paint patches everywhere covering up the mildew.

The hotel is awful. The beds are so uncomfortable and we got lots of bug bites from one of the beds. The bath tub was disgusting. The maids actually asked us if we wanted to have our room cleaned. The guy at the front desk entered our credit card number incorrectly and woke us up early to have us bring... More

They rent many of the units on a long term basis so it feels more like a boarding house than a hotel. I am ashamed for the Ali'i (royalty) that this place carries their name because it is so run down and unkept. It maybe one of the more economically priced hotels in Waikiki, however for what you get, it... More

I'm staying right now in this hotel, the front desk is the worst I have ever seen, as I came the woman did not even say hello only "your credit card ". Besides the front desk is most of the time empty which means that you have to wait a very long time till somebody comes. If ever you have... More

Double bed, cable television, ac, mini fridge, in room safe, hair dryer, ironing board with iron. Do not expect any luxury hear. The good thing about... More

Room was clean and comfortable. 24 hour reception if you arrive late at night as I did. Inexpensive bar at street level. If staying 9 days or more; the price for parking for a month is cheaper than daily.
