Shoreline Hotel Waikiki

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Stayed here in August 2013 and was very pleasantly surprised with this place. First off, it's in a great location, close to the beach and shopping without being on the beach. The staff is very polite and helpful. The decor was clean and chic-- i liked the color palette. Small rooms, but clean and updated. Loved that there was a rooftop pool (albeit small) that was empty 95% of the time. I think I lucked out because our room on the 13th floor had a HUGE balcony that had a partial ocean view.

On my last 2 trips to Oahu, I've stayed at turtle bay and royal hawaiian so i've been a little spoiled! While Shoreline isn't the RH, you aren't paying RH prices, but you are still getting a great waikiki experience on a budget. And although I say it's budget friendly, you aren't getting a nasty budget-friendly hotel! Would come back for sure if I can't splurge on RH (which is still my fav)!

Room Tip: 13th floor has a big balcony

Our experience at this hotel was average overall. The entrance to the hotel was up concrete stairs to an unwelcoming landing that needed a good sweep. There was a person smoking at the front door. The front desk staff were also just average. The room was worn, had two double beds and was not overly tidy. The bathroom was tiny, as was the lanai. It faced the city and the street and was extremely noisy. We have stayed in Honolulu before and always enjoy it, but this hotel was an unimpressive start to our holiday.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I arrived late due to a delayed flight.... I was probably the last guest to check in that day about midnight, and the hotel clerk met me at the door and was expecting me! The check in and welcome could not have been better. The lobby has been freshly done with some beautiful lighting and decor, as have the rooms. I was happy and impressed by the quality of the bed and the size of the room.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a prime location but traveling on a tight budget. It's located right next to the best hotels but for a fraction of the price.

The hotel staff were immensely friendly and helpful.... a real change from the giant neighboring hotels whose staff are always overwhelmed by crowds of people. The only cons to this hotel are the limited views... mine looked into an adjacent apartment building, and the lack of an on-site restaurant.

If you want a nice affordable place this is a great option.

I stayed at the Shoreline Hotel in Waikiki for 2 nights in January, travelling from Australia. My flight arrived at 6am local time and despite not being able to guarantee early check in, as is normal for most hotels, the staff were very accommodating and had my room ready as soon as I arrived. I was also offered a complimentary bottle of red or white wine, or 2 bottles of water. I had booked a City View King Room for just myself as I was travelling alone however it is definitely big enough for two people. The free wifi was also a bonus! The room was spotless as well as the bathroom. The safe was also very secure to hold items such as passports, money and jewellery. The hotel also offered complimentary coffee, tea and water to their guests. Guest services also gave guests a beach pack for when they went to the beach. I was also very impressed with the staff who always had a smile on their face and offered great service. I recommend this hotel to families and couples looking for an inexpensive, clean and modern hotel to stay in whilst in Waikiki. It is located one block back from Kalakaua Ave (The main shopping strip of Waikiki), and from Waikiki Beach.

We stayed at the Shoreline for 3 nights and it was fantastic! Location was good. Susan Makio and her staff were friendly and welcoming. The lobby has complementary coffee, tea, fruits and an assortment of cold drinks. I would stay there again and definitely recommend to friends.Close walking distance to the beach and the Cheesecake Factory. :-)

I recently stayed at this hotel after reading rave reviews from previous travellers. Everything said was spot on. The location was fantastic! Two min walk to trolley depot from which to travel to other destinations, from bus stops and best of all, my fave find (Marukame Udon). I loved everything about this hotel and it was perfect for my needs. I will definitely stay at Shoreline in the future. The hotel restaurant is currently being renovated but there are a few breakfast places close by (e.g. Seaside Bar & Grill, IHop, McDonalds) if you need an early start.

Note this place is not for those who are accustomed to five star hotels.

We visited this hotel and stayed in room 1022 for more than a week. It was wonderful!!!
Beautifully hotel with clean rooms. Housekeeping was included every day :)
A short distance to the main street with all the designer stores. Very close walking distance to the beach. The hotel had even a pool on the roof.

Fruit, coffee, tea & water drinks included at the lobby.
Free Wifi was included, you could also use the computer at the lobby free of charge in 20 minutes.

The hotel had a great staff who were helpful, kind and provided a good service with everything you ask =) We loved this hotel and will definitely visit it again.

Very good price for a great hotel
