Got upgraded to junior suites and it was awesome! Rooms are very clean, building is easy to find and very near waikiki beach, restaurants and shops. Friendly and very helpful receptionist. Wifi is slow at the lobby at first but eventually picked up especially when we came up to the room. Overall, good value for money.

This was my second consecutive year staying at the Shoreline Hotel. We loved it that much! I called Front desk and spoke to rep named Zee prior to our arrival.

First, let me say that the lication is great. Short walk to shopping, beach, and restaurants. I have two big complaints. First, the rooms we were given were terrible, low floors, small, view of alley and parking lot. "Each room has a balcony"; well, ours was more like a small, dirty ledge with one plastic chair. Not a boutique experience.... More

I enjoyed my 3 night stay here. Got a deal on Travelzoo. Some small perks was free coffee, tea . Pineapple ice tea & lemon in lobby. Free beach towels to borrow & 10% discount to restaurant next door. Q-tips & makeup remover swabs was nice. Our balcony faced a parking lot so nothing to see but great place to... More
