I've stayed here before and every time is exactly what I need at the price that is unbeatable which gives me more $$$ to spend on other things like tours and food ect. as Waikiki is expensive. If you can get in , consider yourself lucky , it is booked well in advance by repeat guests. There are weekly rates... More

I came here back in June 2013 (not 2014 like i listed below) with a friend and her family and I was shocked to learn of their prices (check out their weekly deals) especially because of how centrally located their are to...

We last visited honolulu seven years ago, and when the opportunity to have another holiday there, we immeadiately hoped the Royal Grove had a room available for us. They did, not the side of the hotel we would have preferred, but we were quite late getting our bookings done. Our travel had us arriving in the early hours of the... More

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
