“Great location and budget friendly!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We got a great deal on this hotel for 3 nights and I'm glad we stayed there vs our backup plan which was closer to Diamond Head. The front desk staff was friendly and approachable (especially Ali), though some seemed to know the area better than others. The furnishings and decor were contemporary although the drawer/storage space was limited and the room certainly is small. This didn't bother us too much as we were only there for 3 nights before heading to the BI so we just kept everything in the suitcases in the closet.

The only cons were: no view to speak of; our room faced an adjacent apartment building, the laughably small balcony with one scrubby plastic chair, and the limited valet parking which forced us to park across the street every day.

The location was right in the midst of the shopping area with lots of moderately priced restaurants nearby and a short walk to the beach. Excellent value!

Aloha gwenddk,
Thank you for your kind words on Tripadvisor! We take absolute pride when our Front Desk Hosts are mentioned; we will definitely commend Aly and let her know to keep up the great work. While our “City View” rooms face the surrounding areas of the building our property also offers “Partial Ocean View” rooms that offer a more pleasing and relaxing view, for your next trip to Hawaii please consider booking one of these rooms. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your experience with us we greatly appreciate your comments.
Mahalo,

Did a staycation here and the hotel is a pleasant surprise. It's double glass doors kept a lot of street noise out. It's actually a short block and half down an alley from the beach. Centrally located from shopping dining etc. The room fixtures look new, bath fixtures are modern. There is one warning for your shin, the bed frame extends beyond the mattress, so be careful not to kick it while walking in the dark. I enjoy it's shower a lot because the curtain frame is circular which keeps the curtain away from your body. Over all it's an excellent hotel.

Aloha drfish2000 and Mahalo for your 5 star review!
Thank you for your kind comments we really appreciate them. It’s pleasing knowing that you found our hotel quiet, convenient, and relaxing. As for the bed frame protruding out past the mattress our housekeeping and maintenance departments work diligently so that mishaps like that can be avoided and have since corrected the issue. Once again thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us we hope to have the pleasure of having you stay with us again.

I would say this hotel is average. Our room was VERY small! So small that it was difficult to find a spot to put our luggage and eventually resorted to storing one of our bags in the closet and had to keep the door open for it to fit. Good price and close to the beach. I think we could have found better for the price however.

Aloha Sachique,
Thank you for taking time to share your recent experience with us. While it is unfortunate that you found your recent accommodation to be small, we do offer larger room categories also at a competitive price that may better suit your needs. In the future consider booking one of our Junior Suites if your travels bring you back to the Waikiki area. Again thank you for your review and kind words.

stayed in the hotel from 29 April for 14 days with my daughter and grandaughter for 14 days and was extremely pleased with the choice. We stayed on the 14th floor in a junior suite - big enough for 3 females!!! even had a walk in wardrobe. arrived early and could not book in until 3pm but they held our baggage and gave us towels so that we could go to the pool or beach until our room was ready. after a walk along the beach we then went to the pool on the roof and although small was big enough. Hardly anyone there and we went every day, even I had a swim which was unusual. the hotel is so close to everything and was always spotlessly clean. Free wifi saved us a fortune as we used viper for contact to Australia. Free tea and coffee and also cool drinks were free (in the foyer) which was real good after coming in from the heat. Right opposite is a store called Ross, some really good deals for clothes. Staff at front desk were always friendly and helpful. Cannot fault this hotel and would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 14th floor in a junior suite so was big enough for 3 people, noise was not a proble...

We spent 7 nights at Shoreline and were pleasantly surprised by our stay. The hotel and room were clean and modern with more than enough room for us with our travel and plenty of shopping bags! The location is off the main "strip" but only by a few shops, and it was nice to be away from the traffic and hustle. The hotel was close to the main bus stops to all the popular island destinations plus fantastic food options and of course right across the road from Ross for Less! (a must for anyone looking for great value shopping!).

We requested a higher floor as it was our anniversary and the hotel obliged by putting us on the 10th floor and even surprised us on our first night with a complimentary bottle of wine! The front desk staff were exceptional, providing us numerous maps and hints and tips to get around the island, including organising our early morning check in (after our flight landed well before check in time) and arranging our taxi on departure.

Only negative is delivery trucks on the street can be noisy early in the morning, but not controllable by the hotel and suspect noise would be worse on the "strip" and in a hotel with a lot more guests on each floor ( we didn't hear our neighbours at all - which was nice).

If you are looking for fantastic value, modern clean rooms, great location and friendly staff - this is your place! Thanks Shoreline!

Room Tip: Hotel considers customer requests - so be sure to ask for anything you need.

You cannot beat the Shoreline. Just a few walkable minutes away from beautiful Waikiki beach, and shopping and restaurants of all kinds. The price for this location and quality is unbelievable. A smaller, older building that has been nicely updated to a modern gem. Everything in our room was in perfect working order and very clean. (Nice and quite, too!) Very helpful and friendly staff. On the negative side, rooms are small, views not great, tiny balconies, and no restaurant on the premises (at least not during our stay) -- and parking is expensive (valet only), but that's no different from anywhere else in Waikiki. But none of that would stop me from staying here again and recommending the Shoreline to my friends!

I stayed 2 nights following a business meeting to look around the island. the reception referred me to a good budget booking agent to book some tours which was helpful. The location was convenient especially being alone i felt safe wandering to the shops down the road at night. I liked the complementary drinks in the lobby, the cucumber and mint water was delicious! My room looked over the road, no view unfortunately but quite comfortable. The only negative was that the staff in the lobby were not very friendly, especially the porter, who looked very miserable, but overall the stay was good. i would recommend this hotel and would stay again.
