Ok, so if you are into 1200TC sheets and room service, this place in not for you!! You are quite welcome to go to the Hyatt down the road and pay 4 times the price! If you want a well priced, large room, friendly staff, 2 blocks from the beach and somewhere to sleep off way too many happy hour... More

Ohh it's terrible, lol going back in May. I don't want it to get too popular or it may change. Affordable, friendly and so close to the beach and shopping. Not fancy but what you save you can spend on tours.the staff are great and the room ladies very friendly. Our room was so roomy no just having to sit... More

The good: Everything else. The people were extremely friendly. The sheets and towels were clean & crisp. The building has real character. It feels like it's a throw back to 60's or 70's Waikiki. The location is good -- not right on the beach, but a few short blocks away. The price is also great. The bad: The hotel is... More

On my 5th visit to Waikiki, I opted for the Royal Grove. My Hawaiian friends suggested I stay there. I had an efficiency apartment on the first floor near the pool. Yes, the pool is small, but wonderful! The ocean is 2 blocks away. My apartment had 2 double beds, a full sized 'fridge, a microwave, full stove with oven... More

This is the funky hotel that you would see in a movie thinking “wow, if only there was a place like that in real life”, well, it does exist. I have stayed a couple of times at this hotel and I have enjoyed every second of it. First of all, this is not a hotel – this is a very... More

This hotel may not be for everyone, but it was perfect for me. It is not posh but it is warm and genuine and reminiscent of what I think Waikiki was 20-30 years ago before all the development. There is no breakfast or restaurant, there is a small pool, but what there is, however, is charm and a sense of... More

This is a hotel with alot of heart, lost in time....The location is ideal (2 blocks from the beach and close to all amenities). I stayed 2 months and felt very safe and secure here. The Monday jams were awesome! The pot luck holiday meals were ex! Previous guests have left air mattresses, floaties, swim goggles, wake boards, etc. and... More

We'll be back! It's quite dated, yes, but very well located with clean, spacious, well equipped rooms and friendly and obliging staff. There is great eating on the same block, buses to everywhere 100m away and its 200m to the beach. We loved Royal Grove.

The hotel is a bright pink building and kinda sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the Hilton, Monarch and the other 5 star properties (what does this tell you – hell yeah, prime location!). Hop, skip & jump and you are at the beach. Centrally located and close to all the shops, farmers market, restaurants etc. The hotel is... More

Every time we go to Waikiki we stay at this little hotel and we've never had a problem. When we go to places like this where a beach is available and so many activities, we prefer a cheaper place to stay cause the main reason is to have a bed to sleep, other than that we are never in the... More
