Firstly, let me start by saying what a great location this hotel is in... one block back from the beachfront strip and close to everything. I had requested an early check in before travelling to Hawaii and when we arrived at the Shoreline, my request wasn't even acknowledged until I asked about it. It was of course denied so we... More

This hotel is close to the beach and in the middle of the action. The price compared to the other hotels was better making this the pick. We had three in our family on this trip. They only had a queen bed room left so we took it. The bed was tiny a little less then a queen and we... More

My husband and I recently came back from an 8 night stay at the Shoreline. I was slightly skeptical about the hotel just because it was much smaller than what we're used to. I'm so glad we took the chance and booked this hotel. It is located right in the heart of Waikiki. The hotel is clean and the staff... More

The staff were hospitable. They saw to my comfort as much as possible. I enjoyed the pool on the rooftop which is small but good for a refreshing dip and laps. I don't shop but there are convenience stores ABC and Starbucks a block away and the hotel is around the corner from duty free. What attracted me is that... More

Smaller hotel didn't scare us from having a great time and enjoying our stay. Everything was very well done without the flash, glitz, and stuffy atmosphere. I would recommend this hotel over anything that sits right on the water in Waikiki. Walking distance to everything ever needed and at the right price hard to beat. Enjoy your stay!

We liked it here because it was within a 5 minute stroll to swish shops, restaurants and the beach, but as it wasn't right in the more expensive part of Waikiki it was a lower cost. The rooms were nothing special, quite smallish, but clean. Staff in reception were helpful. No restaurant but that was fine as we were happy... More

The hotel is right in the heart of the Waikiki beach area. The room was small, but had everything you needed. The front desk staff was knowledgeable and pleasant. The WiFi was pretty fast. The elevator was super fast. There were hot and cold refreshments at the lobby every day. I requested for a higher floor if it was available,... More

We had a great and enjoyable stay at the Shoreline! Really loved the centrality of the location - so close to everything: Waikiki, shopping malls, shops, transport- so easy to get to everything!!! Plus, the room was so clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on!! Very fluffy pillows too! They were very accommodating... More

I guess I should start with the good...the staff was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect..short walk to the beach, shopping and restaurants no need for a car here! The price was reasonable for the area and the hotel has free wifi. Enjoyed seeing Moses daily when we did have to use our car :) Now the bad...I asked... More

We stayed here from the 14th Feb to the 24th Feb 2015 .Before leaving for Honolulu , my husband had emailed the hotel explaining that we would be arriving on our 22nd wedding anniversary and if possible could they provide a room with a semi-nice view as a surprise to me. A reply was received stating that his request was... More
