This was my first time to Hawaii, and if I based it on my experience at this place it would be my last. Where do I start, well, you get what you pay for and buyer beware. $70.00 a night rooms should have been my first clue. But I was assured that the people were "really nice". No, not at...

Comfortable beds in a great budget hotel in an expensive city. The front desk and staff are very very nice and helpful. I stayed march 11th till the 28th of this year for my 2nd time to this hotel and 6th time to Oahu. The kitchenette was wonderful and had plenty of utensils, pots and pans, a toaster and a...

It's my home. I feel like home there. It's not the best place and not the worst. I just feel like home in Royal Grove and that's it. Not a lot of people like it and other people, like me, feel like home there. You need to try or maybe not. It's my secret, my place, my ohana ! Aloha

This isn't a high-budget, posh location. But what Royal Grove lacks in hotel chain amenities, it more than makes up in old Hawaii charm and prices that allow you to spend more on entertainment or to stay longer! Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is super convenient, two blocks from the beach!

I spent 6 nights at the Royal Grove Hotel recently while vacationing in Waikiki. There were a few things that really appealed to me about this hotel. First of all, my room was only $70 a night. Secondly, it's a small hotel (compared to most of the other hotels in Waikiki). Third, it's family owned which I feel gives it...

We love it here! This year all the guests got together and had a potluck Thanksgiving meal, what fun. We love the music/hula sing along too. The staff are friendly and we appreciate how close we are to the beach. The Royal Grove is one of the last true gems left in Oahu. We cannot wait to return.

Every time I go to Hawai'i, I stay here. I've been four times to the Royal Grove. It is family owned and operated. Now, if you are looking for 5 star, this is not your place. Maid service is twice a week. Rooms are spacious and have small kitchenette with fridge, stove, microwave, sink, and your dishes. You can't beat...

When my wife and I were planning our trip for the Waikiki Rough Water Swim ocean race on Labor Day, we asked a friend who works for United Airlines for lodging suggestions. Her number one choice, for personal travel to Waikiki, was the Royal Grove. I then read all the great reviews fellow travelers wrote. Now, having stayed in the...
