We stayed here for 14 days in February and was met by Christina that was working the front counter. She was very pleasant and friendly and had us checked in quickly and efficiently. Once we got up to the room on the 20th floor we found the room to be needing a FULL renovation but had an amazing view of... More

I have stayed at the Hawaiian Monarch a few times over the years, and considerate it a low budget hotel in a busy traffic congested area. Yesterday I stopped by to inquire about renting a studio room month to month via the condo renting company that is part from the hotel. I was dressed well and presented myself. The lady... More

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
