I have been going to Oahu for years and we stay at The Royal Grove Hotel. This is a very old hotel that is painted "pink" with lots of old timer charm. If you want luxury, this is not your hotel. If you want a comfortable family type atmosphere - this is the place. The Fong family has owned this... More

I usually stay in a beachfront hotel with a nice view when visiting Waikiki, so I admit I had some skepticism about staying in a budget hotel. But having read the mostly good reviews on TripAdvisor I decided to take a chance. I was not disappointed. If the hotel seems old and dated, well, that's its charm. The front desk... More

Have stayed here at least twice. It's old, and I'm pretty sure the furniture (at least in the units I had) is original. However, it's inexpensive, each unit has a basically equipped kitchenette, the staff is friendly, and it's ideally located. If you're seeking luxury, the Royal Grove won't meet your needs; for others it will be ideal!! The same... More

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 And the but means that this place is way beyond outdated, it wasn't very clean and it was always so noisy around the hotel.I noticed right away the fire alarm in our room that was ripped off the wall.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
