Great budget hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 27, 2007

If you're looking for accomodation with no frills but a great location, then this is the place for you. The staff on the desk were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The maid doesn't come in everyday but that's a blessing in itself! The loaction is perfect, within a short walk to shops, the beach and all amenities. I would definitely recommend this hotel to those on a budget. Remember though, it really is no frills and is just very basic. On saying that though, you do get a small kitchenette in your room with cooker, fridge and sink. This is great for keeping eating costs down too. A really great place to stay!

Unique Quality: It does have a small pool in an enclosed area. The hotel has a real community spirit to it too. I had a room at the front (which was a little noisey) but the staff on the desk allowed me to move to another room without any problem.

Directions: Just a block behind the Hyatt Regency.

Can't Ignore the BIG $$$ Saved!

My son and I stayed at the Royal Grove in 2005, we already have our reservations for our next trip!
The Grove is very dated, but we found it to be clean and the staff to be extremely helpful and respectful. We always had plenty of hot water with good pressure (which I hear can be a problem with budget hotels sometimes). The use of a safety deposit box is free.
You can park across the street for a nominal fee.
Maid service is not everyday...if you have weekly reservations, it is 2x week. But with just a little picking up after yourself...NO PROBLEM!
The kitchenette is the best! You can purchase some supplies and have a few meals in your room...saving some more $$$.
I have recommended the Grove several times.

Unique Quality: Budget Hotel
Great front desk staff
Small Clean Pool
Borrow for free beach toys, boogie boards, beach mats etc.
Parking for a fee across the street
A short couple of blocks for Waikiki and The Duke Statue

My 4 night stay was all work. So, up at 3am, and back by 6 or 7. So, I didn't go out much. Just to get a bite to eat. Well, my room was great for $62. Didn't see one bug. It was pretty clean. Air conditioner worked great. Great TV. Had a fridge, stove, and kitchen sink. Dishes. Okay, so it wasn't a 5 star, but it was great for the price. Didn't eat any Hawaiian food. So, I ate fast food for 4 days. Lots of fast food places around. Parking across the way is $12 a night and $7 at the Waikiki Banyan, about 3 blocks away. Corner stores all over. Pretty good prices. People who work at the hotel are very nice. It's quiet. It was worth the price. But if you are over 5'8, then stay somewhere else. `Cause this bed was very, very short. I'm 5'8, and I had to sleep in an angle to get in the bed. And someone here said it smelled kinda funky in the room. Yeah, it kinda did. But I was too tired to really notice. If you are expecting a really nice room with a couch and nice furniture, well, this isn't the place. But for $62, it is worth it.

Horrible

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 18, 2005

I stayed one night here because of the good reviews I've seen everywhere. But once there I realized it wasn't what I thought it was going to be.
The room had a weird smell. The bed was small. The bathroom was nasty. I didn't even want to take a shower because there was soap scum inside the tub, mildew everywhere, and the shower curtain needed to be washed. The sink had a weird yellow color with dark spots. And the toilet, well, I didn't want to sit on the toilet. The sheets looked clean but smelled like a mixture of mildew and urine. The room's door needed paint. The parking lot across the street was full, and we had to park on the fourth floor. And guess what, they didn't have elevator.
The people were friendly. The location was great. But I'd rather spend more money and stay in a decent place.

Best Value for the budget traveler

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Royal Grove Hotel, on Uluniu St., is great if you're on a budget and want a place close to Waikiki beach. It is a small family owned pink hotel with clean kitchenettes. It has a pool that is probably less than half the size of regular ones. But with world famous Waikiki just 2-3 blocks away that's no big deal. Alot is in walking distance including the International Marketplace, the Zoo, the Aquarium, and many restuarants/stores. The Bus system is a good way to travel about town and even can be taken around the island of Oahu.

Unique Quality: Very affordable, clean rooms with kitchens. Ask for a room facing the pool courtyard with a/c since they are a little more peaceful. Parking in the garage across the street is reasonable in price too--a rare find in Waikiki.

Directions: In the heart of Waikiki.

Dirt Cheap!!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 2, 2004

Are you looking for dirt cheap accommodations right in Waikiki without the hostel environment? The Royal Grove Hotel should fit the bill perfectly. Average rates for a standard room with a private bathroom, air conditioning, a balcony, a kitchenette, and a color TV are $60/night, or $370/week.

Unique Quality: This older pink hotel is a mere block from Kuhio Beach, even though there is a pool on the premises. The best part of the Royal Grove are the owners/managers, the Fongs; they will treat you like Family!!

Directions: Waikiki area; Kuhio Beach

I feel the need to correct one review, the Grove does have an elevator, it may have been out of order but that happens everywhere. I hope they still have the singing and dancing on Tuesday evenings. Me's Korean bbq on the end of the hotel for breakfast when you don't feel like cooking and Duke's for hula pie is a short walk away.
