Great staff great hotel! Couldn't recommend it highly enough! Perfect location away from the noise and yet close enough to all the main areas! The staff at the front desk couldn't have been friendlier and all the small touches like the coffee and tea and punk lemonade were awesome!

Just a 1 night stay here but it was such a prime spot and modern/clean hotel I would definitely be returning to! It had all the necessities for a comfortable stay at such a reasonable price that impressed our trio family. Microwave and free wifi were an added bonus. Their roof top pool is small and probably wouldn't leave an... More

Stayed here for an overnighter. Good location, short walk to the beach and all restaurants, shops etc. Staff were great. Check-in from 3pm was a bummer after getting in at 8am from a red eye but they kept our luggage until we could get our room. Sleep quality was the main issue here - the noise from door slamming shut... More

This was the 5th vacation to Honolulu for my wife and I. Each time at a different hotel. All in Waikiki. Shoreline was the most centrally located hotel of the 5. Even though we like to walk, it was nice having everything so close. We were there for 8 days for our 42 second anniversary. Our room was small but... More

stayed at the shoreline for two weeks while i was in hawaii on a business trip (yeah, tough life). the shoreline was within the per diem limits and was in a good location. obviously not right on the beach, but it was a close enough walk. the hotel is a block away from island vintage coffee, which offers great coffee...

Despite reading some bad reviews we found this hotel to be perfect for our needs! Very helpful staff who helped us book a rental car and printed us directions on where to pick it up etc. Clean rooms and an easy walk to the beach and all the shops! Would stay here again for sure.

My partner and I stayed here from 10th - 23rd June 2014. I picked this hotel because it had the best ratings (in my opinion) on Trip Advisor and was also a great price and looked a lot more modern than similarly priced hotels in Waikiki. I was definitely not disappointed! The location is amazing, literally right in the middle... More

I love this hotel. I stay there every time I go to Honolulu. Located a street back from the beach and within a minute from the major shopping precinct, the shoreline is a great place to stay. It's affordable and the rooms are always clean and well presented. The rooms are a decent size and the bed is comfortable. The... More

This is a cute little hotel in the heart of Waikiki, just moments from the shops and beach. The rooms are pretty average, which is to say comfy beds, typical modern hotel decor, and a clean modern bathroom. We had a room on the back of the hotel at 5th floor and there were no views as such, but it... More

I thoroughly researched and planned for months when picking this hotel. We chose it over a condo because of the reviews which raved about the comfy beds, great showers, courteous staff and cleanliness of the hotel. They're all wrong. My request for a room not facing Seaside Ave. wasn't honored but it was quiet enough, even being on the fifth... More

In a destination that’s famous for being popular, the Shoreline is comfortable in its own skin. The hotel — 135 rooms over 14 floors — has a scale absent from most Waikiki Resorts, and the 1970s design creates a contemporary feel. Accommodations are bright and well‑appointed. ... more   less
