I stayed for 9 nights recently. I enjoyed everything about the hotel. Location, the room, the staff. Easy 2 minute walk to Waikiki Beach at half the cost of staying right on the beach. I will be back for sure!

My husband and I recently stayed 7 nights at the Shoreline and were very pleased. The lobby and rooms were very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We had a queen room that had a small refrigerator, microwave and a Kuerig coffee maker. The room was quite small and when we return will get a slightly larger room. Valet... More

Stayed for 8 nights. Hotel is boutique and has a nicer feel than a lot of the more dated classics around Waikiki. Location is fantastic. It is close to everything. The beach is a 200m walk. Ross is across the road, H&M on the corner, Victoria Secrets and all the good shops, supermarkets and public transport links are not far... More

Stayed at this hotel for a week, it's not a five star hotel but the room was clean and the location can't get any better for the price we paid. It is in close proximity to the beach and shops. It is also close to the duty free gallery which about less than 5 min walk from where we took... More

Stay here for 2 nights in Oct. - stopped in HNL on our way to Maui - specifically to see Pearl Harbor. Easy 2 minute walk to Waikiki Beach at half the cost of staying right on the beach. Hotel was clean with average sized rooms and staff was friendly and it's location was very central.

We stayed in this hotel for 15 nights, using the Priceline express deals for Waikiki City (three stars) for $95 a night. We arrived at 11am and despite check-in not available till 3pm the front desk clerk (Monalyn) found a room available for us right away. She said it was on a higher level, so this might have meant we... More

Room was a tiny bit smaller than others I had in Hawaii, but I was travelling alone and it was definitely fine for my needs and I liked it. Staff were really nice at the front desk. The pool was really cute (OK so Sheraton pool had the sunset views but who wants that many people to swim with!) and... More

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel. I am very pleased with friendly staffs. The room is kind of small compared to others I have stayed in the area previously. There is not much of a view of anything from my room. But, it is clean and comfortable after all. I recommend this hotel for solo and couples. It may not... More

We used a travel agent to book our 3 week US holiday, but I selected this hotel personally after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We stayed for 5 nights August/September (over Labor weekend as it turned out). The best thing about the hotel is it's really handy location, with the beach and Waikiki attractions all a short walk away. The... More
