"Ho-hum hotel"
Hotel parking cost additional $25 per day. Also if you want to use safe in room, cost was $3 per day for a key to the safe. Rooms were in dire need of updating.

"to close no comfort"
I even left one day early due to how unfomfortable I felt there with my children and wife. If i new of bar down stairs and how often police was called never would I have bought my family there. And to top it off i never got reimbursed for checking out a day early. First and last time I go to this hotel.

"hospitable hotel"
although it is not a top notch hotel compared to the upper scale hotels like Marriott or Hilton, the amenities were considered average but acceptable except for the excessive charge for the daily parking. The hotel provided a crime free atmosphere and courteous service.

"Terrible room , terrible services"
We got to hotel around 10.00 p.m. Person on front desk was very rood. We had chance to get food for dinner and next day breakfast from closest ABC store. But when we try to use icebox we foundout that it not working. We call front desk ans same lady who help us for check-in com to our room and told us that she will leave note that next day someone will come and fix it. Next day noon they change the ice box (but they could do it same time when we call them). Until next day all our food spoiled. We try to speak with hotel management but no way we could find him.

"Staffs need more customer service skills"
One of the staffs there has some interpersonal service skill issues. She doesn't smile or greet guests as they come in or check-in. She had me stand and waited more than 10 minutes while she does her own things in the back. Even when she saw me standing there she didn't say anything. She never greeted me or even say Hi when I check in. She is rude and unmotivated worker for the hotel. I would not book my stay here again on my next trip.

"Ok"
Awful no parking. You have to $25 for a 24hr parking. It sucks when you stayed for a week. Room has bed bugs. I got bit by bed bugs. Housekeeper came in the room and want me to show her the bug. Good thing I kill the bug and put on a kleenex. The next time I got bit..I took a pictures of the bugs I kill. I will never stay or recommended to anyone.

"thin walls, no wifi, no lobby"
if you want wifi, you have to rent a modem router or go down to the lobby, which is just a row of chairs facing the check in counter. Beds are worn out. Strong but dusty AC. parking is 25$ a day. there was strong smell of smoke in the lobby for a non smoking room. Walls are so thin, you cam hear neighbor's tv at 1am. Beds are flat, i can feel the springs. the beds also make squeaky noises when you move. Pretty sure neighbors can hear us. Overall, this is a pretty ghetto hotel. Worse than a motel. There is a ghetto bar & club downstairs that open till 6am. Always see police cars park in front of the hotel's club.

"Too far for the heat"
Couldn't park til I was checked in. Finally got a room early and able to park. Hotel Website said parking was $20/day but it was $25/day. Some from desks were friendlier than others. Room smelled like smoke even though it was non smoking. Libby and Hallways are not air conditioned but rims were nice and cold constantly. I ended up in Waikiki often and the walk during the hot humid season was dreadful. I'd pay more to stay closer and have more amenities. It's like flying a cheap airline. You get the necessities but everything else costs. Bar in hotel was the saving grace.

The location was convenient. Not a super clean, top of the line hotel but it is a place to sleep. The air conditioner in the room was soooo loud! It was hard to sleep with that noise. One day, the housekeeper cleaned only one bed and not the other one. I found that odd. Overall, not so bad but they could do better. No internet in the rooms.

"Discount"
I got this hotel at the last minute for a 1 night stay in between vacating my apartment and flying to move to the mainland. It's not the nicest by any stretch, but the gentleman at the front desk was very kind to me and I had a bed to sleep in. The paint is peeling a bit and there is no wifi in the rooms, but I had a lovely view of the Ala Wai Canal to eat my breakfast in front of.

Dirty unmaintained rooms. We had 3 people booked in room. Set up for two only. Had to ask for more towels daily. Had to actually sign for another towel for our third person!!!! At the front desk! The shelf above place where you hang clothes had an inch or black dirt on it! Mold in shower stall. sink cracked and broken. Hallways smelled horrible. After dark you are in gangster land! Staff rude! . Sheet rock broken, Windows cracked and broken. Carpet worn out!

"Hotel needs a makeover"
Visiting family on this trip, when we got to the desk nobody was there. After checking in and got on the elevator which was hot, we made it to our very small room. The carpet was stained and discolored it was at one time a dark green but has since lightened to a lime green. The bathroom was small and the shower difficult to turn on. We rented a car for the stay and had to pay $25.00 a day. Don't think I will book at the Hawaiian Monanarch again!

"Pass on this one"
Pool was nice, not heated, but nice. Laundry facilities were also nice. No signs anywhere. Just had to wonder to find both pool and laundry. No signs saying which elevators to use. Condos on one side, hotel on the other. I'm guessing it was beautiful in its hey day but is just old and musky now. SUPER thin walls; you'll hear waaAayyyyyy more than you want. Receptionist was flat rude every time we talked with her. It's within easy walking distance to lots of things. Shower was ridiculously short and dirty. I wished I would have paid the extra $20 a night for a decent hotel. And they charge $25 a night to park a vehicle.....cash only. Pass this one by!!!!

Room I stayed in was 1 room with 2 bed for price I paid it was nice and comfortable. what I liked about this hotel the most was staffs they were really nice and friendly, answered all my questions with very nice manner with smile. they were all friendly. I wouldn't necessarily every staff on the front desk are nice, but ones I came across were very professional. their service is probably reason if I were to visit Hawaii again I'd stay in this hotel again.

"You get what you pay for"
My husband and I booked this trip last minute so we didn't select the nicest hotel/didn't do much research. The staff here were all very nice and helpful but the hotel itself was very old and run down. Our hotel room was terrible & had mold in it because every morning my husband and I would wake up with sore throats and stuffed up/feeling like crap. Then when we would leave the room to walk around downtown, we would start to feel better. I wouldn't suggest this hotel to anyone.

Staff were amazing! Very helpful and knowledgable. Location is great! The room was gross, there was blood on the hanger line in the shower... Discusting... The bed was like sleeping on a sheet of ply wood but that's ok because the hotel was really cheap, everything was clean with the exception of the hanger line in the shower. The pool was great! Loved the hot tub, and overall experience was good. Would love to come back soon.

"Expectations Surpassed"
I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks. My stay was pleasant. I booked the hotel based on price, and considering it has over 20 floors, the possibility of a room with a view. I was not expecting luxury. I was expecting an older hotel with the basics: clean room with more than likely outdated furnishings, plentiful and consistent hot water, and a comfortable bed. I never heard any noise from the other rooms, and being located on the 18th floor, I got my view, which was incredible (the Ala Wai canal and the mountains to the east). Clifford, at the front desk, was wonderful....helpful, considerate, respectful, knowledgeable of the area, always friendly...I have never encountered a finer hotel employee, or for that matter, a finer person. All my expectations were met, and in some respects, surpassed.

"A much needed trip"
It was our first time in a hotel around Waikiki. We usually stay with families when we come to Honolulu. This time we decided to try staying at a hotel and we enjoyed our time there. Of course, we visited our families but it felt good coming back to sleep in the privacy of your own rented room. If we ever come back, I will definitely do the same, hopefully I don't have to pay for parking this time. Anyhow, we enjoyed it very much.

"Location is great but hotel needs major upgrades."
I probably would not be staying here again. Hotel is super old and outdated. Carpet needs to be changed. Bathroom toilet was literally crooked. Furniture was super old. Location was prime in the Waikiki area. Pool was ok. This is also a residential condo to a few weirdos who hang out in the front. The front desk stay, although very friendly, we're not very professional at all. A little too "aloha"!

If you are looking for a basic hotel that is close to everything and not looking to pay a lot of money this is a good option. But don't expect updated rooms here. Everything is basic no high end anything. If you are okay with that this is a place for you.

"Never again ,it was my mistake ......."
Hawaiian Monarch was a disappointment ,the check in was good ,the room in bad need of being upgraded,and the fact that there are so many people who lives there and despite the no smoking residents were smoking at the front of the hotel .Just too much going on at this place with local residents and then visitors but i felt safe .One thing i had to check was they told me they one give one soap and one shampoo and conditioner that did not settled good with me so i got just what i asked for two of each .The front desk and housekeeping staffs were really nice and helpful.There is no Wifi in the rooms so you often saw people in the so call lobby with their phones and laptops ,not a good sight .So i had to purchased a router for 10 days in order to stay in my room with Wifi .This hotel don't offer a lot but despite that i enjoyed my vacation on the island ,i would not stay or recomment this hotel to anyone .

The bed had some dirty spots, which was not so pleasing. We loved that the hotel had grills, so we could cook our own food some nights. Also the rooms had microwave, coffee machine and a little fridge. Overall, very pleasantly surprised!

"Depressing over priced lodging at edge of Waikiki"
This is mid 70s construction, a condominium with some hotel rooms. It is shabby and has the ambience of a single room occupancy hotel on Manhattan's West Side in the 70s or early 80s. The carpets are filthy, the mattress needs replacement, the bath tub was peeling and the tv didn't receive at least one basic channel. Far from beach. One bus route nearby but bus to Ala Moana is a bit far.
