I am so happy I picked this hotel.The room was cute and comfortable. I took too many naps but that bed was wonderfully soft. I had everything I needed: a coffee maker, microwave, fridge, clock radio, safe, iron, ironing board and of course a hair dryer. The front desk was sooo helpful. Stella set me up with a cheap place... More

Excellent location in the heart of it. Seconds away from food, shops, bars and the beach. Stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. Stella the receptionist was very friendly and helpful and upgraded our room as we were on honeymoon. Would recommend. Love the cucumber & mint water in reception!

We stay at different hotels all the time in Hawaii. We have stayed in 5 star to 3 star. This one is very good. Stella on the front desk was the best I have every seen and the hotel should make sure they keep her. First we had a queen bed but the room was a bit small for us... More

If you want to be at the heart of things at a reasonable cost this hotel is a good option. The staff and young and amiable and everything is a footstep away.

I arrived at the hotel early in the morning after disembarking from the Carnival Legend. The desk clerk was very accommodating to my needs and ensured I was able to move into a room immediately. I found that the hotel was a very short walk to all the famous places. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. A room... More

Great location, quiet, great wi fi, yummy pineapple ice tea, amazingly helpful staff, clean and modern. If you need a no fuss place to stay with friendly smiles check out the shoreline plus very reasonably priced, just check through all their discount codes on their website for the best deal. Definitely will stay again

We had an enjoyable stay at Shoreline Waikiki. The staff and valet service were most hospitable and the free drinks in the lobby area are a nice touch. Although this is a small and older building tucked away in the City, the location is great and the decor is hip and chic. Would definitely recommend staying here on a future... More
