This place posts photos on its site making it look like it's a Condo you are renting.. albeit outdated but still looks livable, it is not, we were given a room the size of a broom closet with stains all over the carpet, the bathroom was moody and even the toilet seat was so discoloured it looked like it was...

For what we paid for it was not worth it.. It was old, we felt like we were at a quick stop cheap dirty hotel. The day we arrived on the 09th Sep 16 we kindly asked front desk for assistance trying to get checked in, the guy (I wouldn't call him a gentlemen) was so rude and unhelpful. After... More

Considering what we paid to stay in this hotel, I am sorry to say that it is not worthy the price... The hotel is really old, the carpet is terrible (the housekeepers use to perfume it every day when they clean the rooms...), the bath was rusted... And the staff don't care about guests at all! Bad bad bad...

Check in staff was definitely not welcoming but the other staff were good. Flight from Australia we got there at 1.30pm and couldn't check in until 3.00. Went to bar to get something to eat and was verbally abused by drunk/drugged local. Don't recommend at all!

I wouldn't recommend this hotel because the room was small and not so clean. The bathroom was very tight and the bathtub was stained and looked dirty, The person who checked us in was not friendly at all. I had to remind him that I paid the fees through you folks. For the price charged, I was quite disappointed. The... More

Clifford Johnson was a very helpful staff. He actually guided us and told us about buses and places to visit. He has been a very approachable person. The hotel was not very clean and was very outdated. If you are just there to sleep and do activities during the day then it is ok. But to relax ...noooo.

Staff makes me feel like they are doing me a favor to be there. Old and tired, mattress should have been retired years ago. I have stayed in a lot of properties in this area, and this is the worst. Skip it and try one of the others

Stayed here for the great price very reasonable rates, cost included use of the business center, gym and pool. Also the location is very near to the Convention Center where the Comic Con was held...it was a very short 5 minute walk.

I'm a local braddah that, reluctantly, booked a one night stay at the Hawaiian Monarch. I had stayed here a while ago and gave it an unfavorable rating. I now give it a "terrible" rating. I would not advise this hotel for anyone traveling with family. I'm a large guy but even I felt a bit uneasy walking through the... More
