Nice Place

The hotel is very nice and convinient. The staff were all wonderful and nice...The only issue I didn't really like  was the resort fee that you pay to the hotel.We had issues with the equipment we were paying the daily resort fee for. But I would reccomend the hotel

We would stay here again.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
My mom and I had a recently renovated studio w/ partial ocean view. The kitchenette was well equipped. 2 very short blocks to the beach and an easy walk to a variety of dining and endless shopping.

Staff very friendly

Pros: Close restaurants
Overall my experience at this hotel was very good. It was just my spouse and I so the room was just barely big enough, those traveling with family might find it a bit tight; but for the time spent in room it was good for us. Parking a bit expensive and is not run by hotel. The free DVD rental card was great, we actually watched a few movies that we wouldn't have otherwise.

Best value for the money on Waikiki Beach!

Pros: Close restaurants, close to beach, friendly helpful staff
Cons: No free Internet
Close to the beach, kitchenette to help defray meal costs, and friendly staff make this the hotel we keep returning to (this was our fourth stay at the Pacific Monarch.) Highly recommended!!

The hotel was a great value for the money, not that far from the beach and very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is on a budget or otherwise.

Staff was friendly.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Convenient location - great staff. I did feel that when the room was described as an ocean view it meant more than going on the balcony and looking to the right to see the view.

We have stayed at this hotel several times. It is showing it's age, but is still a good value for the size of rooms.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, you hear garbage trucks at night., no breakfast.
The rooms are very large (like a small condo), but do need some TLC and upgrading. The location is excellent -- close to everything, and a bus stop right outside the door. The roof top is great for watching sunsets and sitting by the pool -- the hot tub is huge. If you pay for ocean view, don't get on the 8th or 9th floor -- you cannot see the ocean unless someone holds you by your feet while you are stretched out over the balcony!! There is no restaurant or bar, but plenty of that very close. If you are looking for any kind of luxury, this is not the place for you. This place is not on the beach, but close enough (2 short blocks). We would stay here again.

Bang for the buck in paradise......

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no breakfast
We were looking for a hotel that did not need to be on the beach, to save cost, and that had an ocean view. This hotel was about 2 blocks off of the beach. It had a great balacony with a partial ocean view, great for morning coffee and breakfast. The hotel was dated, but the rooms were newly remodeled. Our point of view is that we only eat breakfast and sleep there, so the room is not as important as the overall vacation. The room has a kitchen which is great for keeping food and drinks for the vacation and heating up some great leftovers when you need something quick before heading back to the beach. I would recommend a room on one of the upper levels in order to see around some of the towers nearby. Also, the hotel had a great Japanese restaurant downstairs with great service and prices. I would recommend the Aston chain as this is our second stay in one of their facilities and we've had a great time. I would recommend calling first to ensure that the rooms have been remodeled.
