A treasure of a find. Very short walk to Waikiki Beach. Clean, but not fancy. Dated, but charming in it's own way. We felt very fortunate to find a room at the last minute. If we ever go back, it will be our first choice for our family. Beds were not super good, but they were comfortable.

I was on a very tight budget and feel fortunate to have found the Royal Grove. The location is absolutely perfect, right in the middle of Waikiki 2 blocks from beach) and I could even see the ocean from my balcony! Rooms are older and not very modern, but exceptionally clean and well-maintained... I literally only showered and slept there... More

Good hotel, good price and excellent location! The staff is really friendly and you have to be there on the Hula shows! The rooms are a little old, but they are clean. There is a kitchen in most of the rooms. I visited this place 4 times in the last 10 years and I would go again at any time!!... More

I have stayed at several hotels in Waikiki over the past 25 years. The Royal Grove is a place like home if you live a frugal life. No frills, bells or whistles but you can walk to the beach and cook your leftovers. The friendly atmosphere is just the tip of the Aloha vibe present at this location. I've already... More

I've heard good things about the Royal Grove in my prior visits to Oahu but there had never been availablity on my previous adventures. Even this visit I could only squeeze in for half of my trip, but I'm so glad I finally got the chance to experience the Royal Grove even if only for a short while in November... More

I was visiting Hawaii by myself and was concerned about having a great location and for good value. Royal Grove hit both location and value. Not even a 5 minute walk to the beach and the main strip for shops/bars/restaurants. It has quirky decor inside and feels very "old Hawaii" - which is great! The rooms are very simple but... More

A block back from the beach, but without the beachfront prices, this little gem of a hotel is run like a home away from home. Filled with wonderful old mementoes of the last 60 years, it is a real taste of vintage Hawaii, complete with 50's pink colour scheme and 60's tropical pool decor like something from an Elvis movie....

I have stalked trip advisor for months, maybe years in preparation for my vacation to Hawaii. I have posted many topics in the forum and have done hours of research. I debated about hotels for a long time. In the end, I chose the Royal Grove based on the price and the positive reviews. Admittedly, when we walked in I... More

An aging hotel that is the best value BY FAR in the Waikiki area. Two easy blocks from Waikiki beach, clean rooms, functional kitchenette... Did I mention that this is a great deal? If you want luxury or even ungraded features then skip this hotel, however. The bathroom is small and the walls are paper thin. Still a great value... More
