This was our third stay at the Royal Grove in Waikiki, but as always the staff were very helpful, we had a self catering room at the front, bigger than average, think it was 404, comfortable bed, noise not too much of a problem. Very reasonable price for being in the heart of Waikiki and 2 minutes walk from beach. We managed to be there for Monday night music, the band was even better than our last visit and added attraction was hula dancing. I think other people have discovered this hotel as it was very busy. You certainly need to book several months - at least 3 - in advance. We will certainly stay there again if we return to Honolulu.

Best deal in town! Less than 2 blocks from heart of Waikiki Beach. Walking distance to restuarants, shops, ABC convenience stores, McD's, etc. The hotel and staff are definitely old school friendly, smaller building/facility(although 6 floors), laid-back family-like, cozy comfort. Rooms are big, clean, bed is great, great shower water pressure (my #1 criteria), full kitchennette, a/c, small pool with poolside chairs/tables. Special amenities, cheap laudromat available, they will loan (no cost!)beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, and I think they even had bogieboards, Also free lock boxes for valuables. Quick access to room~step off street straight into elevator and up to room~no wait, no fuss! We would go no place else!

Room Tip: Poolside was nice & quiet~even though nxt to elevator, quiet!

We chose this hotel to save money, and we did. Great location 200m from Waikiki and close to bus routes. Our bed was great, room was clean, and had all we needed. But the hotel is old and rugged, lots of kitschy stuff, and was full of old people - it felt like an old peoples's budget holiday place. It does have free wifi in lobby, no problems. Ok to stay here, but just know that it is a bit weird.

Room Tip: We had a king bed city view with AC on 6th floor.

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 drinkies, you are on a winner!! Lots of returning and regular guests give this place a family feel, so does the weekly singalong sessions in the foyer. There is no wifi in your room, but I actually liked that. Yes it is a tad run down, yes the linen is a tad worn, but hey if your like me and like your big fluffy towels, pop down to Ross and buy a couple (we had planned on buying them anyway just did it on the first day and not the last!). Loved the kitchen and full fridge, used the laundry area, and sat around the pool most days, after strolling back from the beach.

Looking forward to returning this year!!

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 on the bed, I feels like home and we are spending three weeks there this year, now who could afford to do that at other Hawaii hotels.

One last word Mr.Fong we love you. We love the entertainment on Monday night beautiful family hotel

Room Tip: We open the windows so the noise comes in, hah it's a holiday town it going to be noisy where ever you stay, take ear plugs. We went to our friends posh hotel, small room, open the door to breath , lol too noisy. We like the 2 bedroom apartment great value we read room 421 is too noisy we got it they were right, but we have booked it again for this May. I think out by the pool may be quieter. We didn't have air con didn't want it didn't need it, other rooms have air con so it's there.
