“Great location with kitchen but that's all you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW via mobile

I choose the outrigger waikiki shore because we traveled with our 9 mo old infant and I wanted a full kitchen. We had a nice view. Clean, but a bit shabby. Blinds did not work well on windows making it hard to dim lights from city at night for baby. Full size refrigerator with washer and dryer. Strange when you go to check in you have to call for someone to come from another outrigger hotel. Cleaning is only every 3 days and we had to call to remind them, though they did empty the garbage every day. Guests can use the pool at the outrigger reef. The reef was not kid friendly, treating us like the outrigger ugly step children and made it hard to access a changing table for our infant.

We were on the penthouse level and loved our stay. A 2 bedroom condo, beautiful views of ocean and mountains. Washer and dryer as well as full kitchen. Very comfortable and clean. Front desk staff super friendly! Very easy access to the beach, and many restaurants and shopping within a short walk.

My husband and I recently returned from a ten day stay at the waikiki shore. This was our second stay there this year. What made us return to the same hotel was the care and attention we received from the manager Walter and his team. No matter what we asked for it arrived within minutes. It truly felt like a family run business. Everyone was gracious and friendly no matter what position they held at the hotel. The waikiki shore guest can use the outrigger facilities right next door. We visited several outriggers for varies reasons (food,drinks,entertainment and pools). All the staff were fantastic. I would recommend this chain of hotels 100%. Thank you Walter for once again making this vacation So wonderful.

Room Tip: Some rooms are renovated, all will be renovated by 2016. However the views a spectacular and the r...

This is an ok place to stay that is right on the beach in Waikiki and is a little quieter than some of the busier places further downtown. The location was by far the best positive this place has going for it, everything else was just alright.

The room was basic, but had in-room washer/dryer and a full kitchen setup. The furniture was a bit dated, the paint was faded (and had some mold in the bathroom), but everything else was OK.

Service was marginal, they gave us a double twin instead of a queen and didn't strap the beds together like they told us they would. There was a $75 cleaning fee for the room (we stayed for two nights) that seemed a bit inappropriate to me and was never mentioned to me at all until I ended up paying for it.

We enjoyed our time here, but I would not stay again.

Room Tip: Be explicit about what type of room you book and make sure you know it and have proof when you check...

This 2+ bedroom. Condo on the ocean is unbelievable! It has lanais on two sides for a full ocean view. Great for viewing the Friday night fireworks that are set off at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. One bedroom has a queen sized bed, one has 2 twins and there is a king off of the living room. All of the
appliances are full sized including washer and dryer. We spent most of our time on the beach and on the lanai. Everything was absolutely fabulous! We were so sad to leave!

My niece and I stayed at Waikiki Shores the week of October 14th. We traveled from central Florida to celebrate my sister's 80th birthday. The one bedroom unit was perfect for the two of us.

Derek and Isaac were both helpful when we asked questions.THANK YOU!

Room Tip: Loved the 14th floor!

We stayed at Castle shores at the end of a long trip across the states. Check in was easy and staff were friendly enough. We booked a studio apartment and 1 bedroom apartment. We asked them to be close by and ended up with floors 2 & 10 respectively. That didn't hamper our stay though. Both apartments were very clean & tidy with great working facilities. The housekeeping staff did a fabulous job of servicing our rooms daily. The little shops underneath the building on the beach make great shakes & delicious meals & There are beach lounges & chairs under umbrellas for hire that are perfect for relaxing and chilling the day away also. Denny's is just a block away and there is shopping & foodies delights only a few blocks down the road too. The outrigger is right next door and owns apartments in the Waikiki Shores property & If you book through Outrigger to stay at Waikiki shores you get full use of the pool etc with Outrigger (food for thought).
