We stayed in this hotel 4 nights in the beginning of November 2011. If you decide to book here set your expectation very low and you will not be disappointed. This hotel is very old and is only maintained in correct shape, no major renovation was done last few years. Because it is often fully booked, don't expect major improvements...

My wife and I arrived and the first hint we got about this hotel is when the shuttle bus driver asked us what hotel we were staying at and we told him, he stopped, looked at us and just went "Oh". This should have told us, we arrived to police on scene dealing with problems at the mini scooter hire...

We were a bit worried before our trip after reading reviews on this site. But, we were not disappointed. It is early 80's style but seemed well kept to us. We did not fly to Hawaii to stay in a hotel room. If we had, then we may have been disappointed. Our room was clean and cleaned well daily. It...

I have stayed in a lot of countries all over the world and this hotel would be acceptable to me if it was located in a 3rd world nation. The whole experience was just creepy, I would have preferred a hostel bunk to this hotel. The tower the hotel is in contains apartments and condos so it doesn't feel like...

The hotel is older but was clean and has mini fridge and microwave. Parking is separate so it's 16.00 a day if you have a rental car . The staff was very nice and the pool location is really great on the 6th floor outside. The rooms are not fancy but you are only there to sleep . I would...

If your records go back that far, my husband Raymond Bolduc and I visited during the 70's, 80's and 90's several times. We were then from Massachusetts. We always stayed at the Monarch. It has been several years now, but thought you would like an objective opinion..old to new. I realize that you are probably focused on the condominium side...

Well now! How can I say this. First of all the rest room facilities were less than wonderful.

This hotel came as a package with air and car. It was a reasonably priced package. I could have chosen another and paid slightly more, but the pictures looked nice and legit and it was good enough, so I thought. It was a big disappointment. Without our GPS, we would not have been able to find this hotel. The hotel...
