We selected this hotel based on others' reviews and we were not disappointed. It was a clean, nicely renovated hotel with friendly, helpful staff . Many amenities are free (WI-FI, use of computer and printer downstairs, etc.) The refreshing water and ice tea and fruit basket were welcoming. We did not have a car and most everything was in walking... More

Just spent a week visiting family stationed at Kaneohe Bay, and I did not want a typical Waikiki resort hotel. I did not plan to use a rental car, & I did not want a spectacular view of Waikiki, as I planned on being out & about most of the time. I was given a 9th floor room with a... More

Great location to explore Waikiki. A lot shopping and excellent places to eat. The room was extremely clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The beach was just across the street and the price was awesome.

This was actually partly business, and partly a family trip. The company my husband was working for booked us at Shoreline. Apparently, a couple of people on the crew weren't too happy with the hotel, so we ended up getting moved later in our stay to the Hilton Waikiki Beach. However, we would have been perfectly happy staying at Shoreline!... More

I booked this hotel going off the back of other reviews and I'm so glad I did. Lovely, modern hotel in a great location. Close to all the shops and just a 5-10 minute stroll down to Waikiki Beach. Staff were lovely too - we'd pre-booked a Pearl Harbor tour and got ourselves confused with pick up points and timings... More

The hotel was a good base, comfortable, and with a lower price than many other hotels in the same area. However, like most Hawaiian hotels it was not cheap! I would stay here again if passing through Oahu. The only issue I had is that they charged my credit card 100USD more than the quoted price. When I questioned them... More

The location was fantastic, close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The room was clean and beds were comfortable, my only issue was the shower curtain started to smell after a few days but other then this I was quite happy with the rooms.

I recently stayed at the Shoreline, Sept 4-7, 2014. I had a wonderful experience. I knew nothing about the hotel other than reviews and the hotel website. When I arrived I was very happy to find exactly what I was expecting. Hotel was centrally located to everything on Waikaki. Hotel was clean and inviting as advertised. Room was small, which... More

Booked Shoreline hotel 3rd party, based on reviews - turned out to be a mistake. Arrived late 8/25/14, around 10:00 pm and was told there was no parking - valet was full. Sent to nearby public lot. Oh well, we did arrive late (and tired, from east coast U.S.,). Next morning had plumbing issue - toilet about to overflow. Called... More
