Fodor's Review

Two generations of the Fong family have put their heart and soul into the operation of this tiny (by Waikiki standards), pink six-story hotel that feels like a throwback to the days of boarding houses, where rooms were outfitted for function, not style, and served up with a wealth of home-style hospitality at a price that didn't break the bank. During the hot summer months, seriously consider splurging on the higher-end accommodations, which feature air-conditioning, lanai,

and small kitchens. The hotel's pool is its social center in the evenings, where you can usually find at least one or more members of the Fong family strumming a ukulele, dancing hula, and singing songs in the old Hawaiian style. On special occasions, the Fongs host a potluck dinner by the pool. Little touches that mean a lot include free use of bodyboards, surfboards, beach mats, and beach towels. The hotel is two blocks from Waikiki's Kuhio Beach. On the property are a health foods store and deli, a sushi bar, and an authentic Korean barbecue plate lunch place. For extra value, inquire about the Grove's weekly and monthly rates. Parking is available in a public lot down the street.
