I have stayed at this place a number of times over the years, the last time before this trip was in 2012. Royal Grove continues to be the best budget bet in Honolulu in my opinion. It is more faded than ever-- expects 70's motel feel-- but the location is fabulous (2 short blocks to Waikiki Beach), the staff are... More

I'm one of those who like the hotel for all the reasons people have stated that they do, and can see why others don't like it for the reasons that they don't, although I disagree about it not being clean; it is well worn, yes, but still clean. The one clarification or distinction that I can make is that the... More

It's all about location at the Royal Grove Hotel. It is about a block and a half from beautiful Waikiki Beach. We could even see the beach from the balcony. The hotel staff is so wonderful. They will accommodate any request the best that they possibly can. Be sure and grab a chair and boogie on the way to the... More

Honolulu hotels can be quite expensive and the Royal Grove is definitely affordable but. And the but means that this place is way beyond outdated, it wasn't very clean and it was always so noisy around the hotel.I noticed right away the fire alarm in our room that was ripped off the wall. There were too many drunks and wagabounds... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, just two blocks from Waikiki beach. Rooms are spacious with a plenty of storage room, bathroom complete with bath and a well equipped kitchenette. The hotel’s pool is small, but serves its purpose and we found we had it to ourselves the majority of the time. There is wifi available in the lobby... More

After 4 fantastic days on Maui our expectations were high, but we were not disappointed. The Royal Grove was outstanding value, so well located, clean, spacious, well-serviced and with a real feeling of warmth. After a morning on the very close Waikiki Beach I could just lie on the bed or sit on the lanai enjoying the sound of other... More

Yes,another trip at the Royal Grove! We stayed 9 days and had a great time. To those of you who have never stayed here this is what you are getting....2 blocks away from the beach,a kitchen with everything you need(you provide the food and drinks), right there you are saving tons of $$ which can be spent on other things...

I am amazed by the positves expressed by travelers on this hotel. There are NO customer service skills by the clerks or anyone else. The air conditioner in our room was non functioning. They gave us a SMALL fan to place beside our bed. Every time we had small requests or had interaction, it was a unfriendly tone, unsmiling experience.... More

I still feel this is the best value hotel in Waikiki although I have only actually stayed in one other - the Marriott which is not good value. I had a week at the RGH in a room on the pool side. The aircon was a new whisper quiet one that disappointed me as previously I used the fan on... More
