I was very nervous booking as this was not a hotel recommended by our travel agent but rather what I found doing research on trip advisor. Myself and my husband spent 8 nights here as part of our honeymoon. The location is perfect and so central. Just one block off the beach and just around the corner of the main... More

I have stayed here twice and this hotel is probably the best deal in Waikiki. It's in a good location, close to dining and the beach. Staff is very courteous and makes the stay stress free. I will stay here again on my next visit to Honolulu.

This is such a great little gem of a hotel. As a solo traveller I loved it. Very centrally located in Waikiki. Loved the quiet of the rooftop pool after spending the day at the beach. Room was cute and had a fridge and microwave. My room was only on the second floor, so there was some street noise, but... More

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

Aloha Amanda J, Thank you for sharing your experience with us we are happy that the hotels great location suited you well. We see that your request for an early check in was not granted, while it is unfortunate a “request” is not a “guarantee.” Each guests confirmation letter notes that “guaranteed check in is 3pm,” to ease this transition...

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
