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... More

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... More

It's difficult to write a review when all you are doing is rehashing what everyone else has already said, but that is all I can do for the Royal Grove. Thirty-plus stories? Panoramic view? Bright, shiny, sparkling new? Fancy restaurant? Concierge? None of the above. So why stay here? Because it's a throw-back to the way things used to be.... More

Nothing fancy in this hotel but who goes to Hawaii to stay in the room? Employees are very friendly and always helped us when require. The only thing was that we found our room very noisy so next time I would pick a room on the pool side.

We stayed at the Royal Grove again this month, we stayed there some years back. It is a great budget hotel, very close to beach and shopping. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is nit a fancy hotel but you have everything you need. Great to have the small kitchenette, so you do not have to eat out all... More

Considering the location of this hotel so close to Waikiki beach and considering the cost of nearby hotels the Royal Grove is incredibly good value. Yes it is old but it is clean, service is good, everything functions as it should,,and there is a swimming pool.
