I stayed here the week of Thanksgiving because of great reviews on the site I booked on. It lived up to expectations. Apparently, this was a United Airlines-owned property for their layovers and since it's been managed by Joie de Vivre, it's becoming well known. From the entry in the lobby you feel the friendly spirit of the staff. They... More

This hotel is very central in Waikikki, it is walking distance to most things. It has free wifi ..YAY. The rooms although small was clean, modern and comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful. And it's just across the road from The Ross store

A basic, but well maintained, well positioned hotel. Not a place to spend a whole vacation, but great for a visit to Waikiki. Staff was helpful and friendly and the room was clean and attractive with a retro Hawaii feel. I would stay there again.

Beautiful boutique hotel smack dab in the heart of Waikiki. The front desk service was accommodating and friendly, the rooms were modern, clean and comfy with balconies. Also, a couple of small things that make a big difference to me - 1) quality bed and bedding and 2) a functioning radio/stereo. Many hotels cut corners on these small details, but... More

My husband and I just returned home after staying here for 7 nights. We stayed in a king size room which was nice and spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. We also had a small fridge and microwave. We stayed on the 6th floor which was pretty quiet. The reception staff are very warm and welcoming, and there... More

Firstly, before I booked the Shoreline Hotel, I had to research what hotels suited and met my requirements as follows: 1) in room fridge and microwave 2) 2-3 mins walking distance to beach and main shops 3) 24 hr desk for our late arrival 4) Internet. After extensive research, the Shoreline had met all these requirements all within our budget,... More

This is a perfect hotel for short stays on a budget in a central area, with clean rooms great amenities and very helpful staff. Ross is across the street so if you forget anything its very easy to pickup some extra clothes. The restaurant has a wonderful local-ish menu from Japanese company that also does Aloha table.
