Family of 5 celebrating my 50th birthday. Hotel staff are very helpful. 10+ rating for the cleaners. Our rooms were crisp and clean daily. The double beds are sooo comfortable. Access to shopping and restaurants. Refreshing drinks daily. Planning on returning next year.

The Shoreline Hotel is a smaller hotel but it is convenient to everything and clean. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The hotel is a very short walk to beach access for Waikiki Beach. The only reason I would not give this hotel an excellent rating is because there is no place to obtain food on site and the parking... More

Lovely staff. Nice roof top pool. Fantastic location within minutes of from main street. Lovely touch with fresh drinks, tea and coffee and apples each day + daily newspaper. Shopping available across the road. ABC store not much further away for all daily needs - cheap sandwiches for an easy lunch, drinks, small goods - toothpaste, soap etc. Thoroughly recommend.

Stepping off the beach strip drops the price of hotels in Waikiki dramatically. But it doesn't have to drop the level of standard in your hotel! The Shoreline is a quality hotel at a mid-level price. Rooftop pool, clean and neat in the rooms and the common areas. Check in/out were a breeze; the staff professional, friendly and polite. The... More

The shoreline hotel is a boutique type, modern looking and conveniently located hotel. The surrounding might not impress you with Ross store on one side and a weird building on the other side, but that didn't really bother us because the inside was great and you can't choose a better location. The staff was always very welcoming, helped us find... More

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.

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

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
