I have stayed at this place a number of times over the years, the last time before this trip was in 2012. Royal Grove continues to be the best budget bet in Honolulu in my opinion. It is more faded than ever-- expects 70's motel feel-- but the location is fabulous (2 short blocks to Waikiki Beach), the staff are friendly, the rooms (I think all) have kitchenettes, and there are rooms to accommodate families. All right next door to the best Korean barbecue place ever (ME restaurant). There is free wifi but only in the lobby, a small pool, things like beach mats to borrow, security boxes at receptions, and they will book a shuttle for you. Great find if you are on a budget. One temporary drawback is they are doing some renovation. They are careful to contain it to two hours in the am and two in the pm, but when we returned on our way home we made sure to book a pool facing room rather than a street facing one. Also, they were shooting Hawaii 5-0 right outside our door which was a hoot.
