      Was truly impressed with this Hotel .
      Mind you it's very old and needs a facelift but for the price it was fabulous .
      It was like a 1 min walk to the best beach on Waikiki plus the staff was very helpful .
      Best value for price in Waikiki .
      This is a budget hotel so stay away if you are looking for luxury go to the Hyatt next door .........

      Great hotel for the price

      from

      Great hotel before the north shore....we stayed in this hotel with our son...it had a fridge and freezer stove microwave...great for traveling with a child....our room was very quiet....the decor is not new but we loved this hotel and would go back on our next trip to hawaii we rented a car at vip ..ate at the korean restaurant downstairs from the hotel...also at the food court at the international market place..saved lots of money....the people at the front desk at this hotel are so wonderful and helpful......

      Less is way more

      from

      Older hotel but well kept up. View from balcony is of highrises, TV is small but really not a problem for us. Room was good size and clean and housekeeping is very good. Extra towels & sand chairs in a stack by the pool- just take 'em. One way in-past the desk. Staff knows the guests and are friendly always, all look like long term people; which we see as good. Distance to Duke statue?Straight down the strret, you've hit a 5 iron that far; maybe a 6. Great location. Smoothie shop and a great BBQ place next door. Parking across street $6 @ day Value plus. Substance over style. Will be back, will recommend to friends. Request a room w/ AC. Free papers too.

      Good Hotel close to the Action

      from

      Just got back from Hawaii, this is a good/cheap place to stay! When I first walked into the room, I was put off by the "look" of the room, (it's definitely older) but after a long day of being tourists, the character of the room grows on you! This Hotel is right in the middle of Waikiki, and how can you beat that! It is 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach, not only that, but the penicle of Waikiki Beach! The action around this area is almost non-stop, but because you are 2 blocks away, you tend to get somewhat less noise. Just MAKE SURE you get directions on how to get there, as well as how to get out of there, the main highways can be a bit difficult to navigate around Honolulu.

      True aloha and a great family place!

      from

      My family of 4 and I stayed there for a month. The hotel treated us like family...guest potlucks at the pool, extra TLC, etc. 2 blocks from the beach. We had a suite with a very large kitchen and the price was very reasonable for Hawaii. Loved it and would go back anytime.

      Best bang for your buck!

      from

      The Royal Grove is a fabulous place to stay. It is extremely well maintained and the location is too good to be true. The best thing about the hotel is the incredibly friendly staff. The whole place has a very homey feel because most people who stay there have been coming back for years and years. I think that this speaks very highly of the staff.

      We've stayed there twice, and have already booked for next year:o)

      Was Pleasantly Surprised

      from

      My Wife & I stayed there 7 nights in 2000 & plan to go back in 2004. I was somewhat sceptical but to my delight found the hotel clean, friendly & the location was great.

      The Other Pink Hotel

      from

      The Royal Grove is the only place I would stay in Waikiki. It is clean with no frills, efficiently run, and blessed with genuinely pleasant and helpful staff. It is two blocks from Kuhio Beach, a short walk from the Zoo and the Waikiki Public Library, and right on the bus lines.

      There are several reaonable local restaurants on the same block, as well as VIP car rental office just around the corner. There's a courtyard with a clean, pleasant pool; a small paperback library; and a modest lobby with comfortable chairs. Air conditioners mask the noise of the street below. It's also painted the same pink color as the Royal Hawaiian, so it's very easy to spot.

      Feel at home

      from

      I by myself and with my family, wife and two children, have stayed at the Royal Grove, 6 times over the years and I can only say that it becomes your "home away from home" in Hawaii.

      Let us in early

      from

      We stayed here once a few years back and this is the only hotle in Waikiki that let us checkin at 8 am. When you arrive, jet-lagged from Tokyo at 7 am, this is much appreciated. The Sheraton Waikiki and Outrigger made us sit around in a "lounge" until well after 2 pm! Best service from a small hotel!

      Always welcome at the Royal Grove

      from

      We have stayed at the Royal Grove for the last two summers. The hotel is no frills; but clean and comfortable. The owners - the Fong Family and the front desk staff are helpful and make us feel as part of the family when we are there. We like to use our travel dollars on things other than our hotel; so the Royal Grove fits our needs perfectly. We also like that it is very conveniently located to the bus lines, the beach and other hotels. It is just five stories; not a high rise which we also like. The Royal Grove is like our home away from home while in Waikiki. We can be to Kuhio beach in a minute. They have boards, chairs, mats to borrow. There is a small pool. The only down side that we have found is that some of the rooms can be noisy. We have met people from all over the world while staying there.

      The Royal Grove would not be for people who like luxurious, pampered surroundings. It is for travelers who like a comfortable bed to sleep in after a long day of experiencing Hawai`i.

      ... places adjacent to the resort, in fact probably on the same property, and prices were much cheaper than any hotel could have managed. They were rather quaint and mainly seated people outside on basic tables & chairs.

      We settled in pretty well on the afternoon of our arrival and woke up early in the morning. Probably because our bodies were still on "mainland" time. But we opened our curtains and waited for the sunrise. As there were many dark clouds ...

      ... the flesh. It was really soft, very mild flavour. We also shared a hot dog from a roadside van. The seller said he retired from his job and decided to sell hot-dogs since that was the very first job he ever had.

      During the day we had no phone coverage and it was pretty late by the time we returned so unfortunately missed out on the magician show. W&W were very disappointed, but we had a pleasant dinner at the Sheraton instead.

After checking in we trudge up to the 4th floor with our backpacks and open our 6 person shared room. 2 people sleeping and the light switch not working. We turn to each other as if to say, what have we let ourselves in for? We left the hostel and went for a walk around while our sheets were in the tumble dryer. We got lost as it was pitch black and ended up walking miles, typical us. We bumped in ...

Apparently the fridge is broken and they are waiting for the new one to arrive so there's no alcohol on display. I had it with some crackers and a soft cow cheese triangle. We finally boarded, it a bit late and we lined up regardless of when they called us because we ...
