Because the pandemic continues to rage, we canceled a refundable reservation of two units more than three months in advance only to be charged a so-called processing fee of sixty dollars. Nuisance fees of this sort that entail no time, effort or cost to the hotel are a rip-off that will cause us to choose a different property when we are again able to visit Honolulu.

My elderly parents were staying in the Trump next door so I’d chosen this place mainly for its next door location but it was a real gem on its own right. It’s in a excellent location right on the beach, walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants and public bus stop is nearby as well. Yes it’s bit dated but it’s very clean with everything you’d expect were there including detergent for washing machine, tea bags and coffee. They collect garbage but no service for one week but I actually liked it. Very relaxing and ecological. I didn’t want to pay for sea view so my room 216 was facing the green space and little side alley to go to beach. It was nice to peak people jogging to the beach in the morning and it wasn’t noisy at night. We took taxi from the airport but for return, the reception booked a company they know which was much cheaper. Overall we’ve really enjoyed our stay and no problem recommending this place for relaxed family holiday. Mini info: if you are travelling from UK braking journey in west coast of USA, you got to go through the immigration and pick up bags as well so give yourself plenty time. It was really busy and we nearly missed our connection. Fireworks on every Friday at 7:30 on the beach. Really good. For other days, don’t miss the beautiful sunset on the beach. Sea is shallow but rocky beyond the beach.

10階なのでロケーションは、全てにおいて良い。低層階は、良くないと思います。金曜日の花火は、ベランダから見るときれいです。 ハワイには、20回以上訪問しています。その半数以上が、コンドミニアムです。 そこまで訪問回数が多いとは言えないですが、相当ショックだったことと、 今後の宿泊客のため。そして、今後、この部屋が改善されること願いために書きます。 無料専用駐車場と掲載されています!が、内容が大問題!  宿泊1週間ほど前にメールが管理会社より届きます。 The dedicated parking space is stall 45 in basement (requires a fee). There is also free 3 hour parking along the wall in the parking area. 日本語に訳すと、「専用駐車場45番の有料駐車場があります。」「3時間無料の駐車場もあります。」 この内容に、管理会社に連絡しても、質問に対しての返答はなく別の内容の返信メール。 困ったのでBooking.comに連絡をし、虚偽の広告内容で違反を告げ、何度と無くやり取りをして無料になりました。 おそらく、泣き寝入りされた宿泊客が大勢存在したと思います。気をつけてください。 これだけではないです。 チェックイン&チェックアウトについて、 ほぼ説明不足で、困惑! 1. レンタカーで地下の駐車場に入場。(専用のゲートオープンキーが必要)   地下の駐車場に入るためには、専用のゲートオープンキーが必要です。当然、説明無く。キーを持っていません。 2. フロントから宿泊者専用ゲート(2つ目の専用キーが必要)   フロントはありますが、管理会社に聞け!の一点張り。   メールで指示がありました。なんとか専用ゲートに入りました。指示通りにしても返答はありません。   それは、管理会社は、北米にあります。そして、現地の方はいません。   管理会社とのやり取りは電話でするしかありません。 3. エレベーター(2つ目の専用キーが必要)   専用キーがなければ、エレベーターにボタンも反応しません。   2.と3.をなんとかクリアできたのは、別室の入居者の方が親切に教えてくれ操作してくれました。 4. 入室の方法(暗証番号が必要)   メールで暗証番号は教えてくれていました。しかし、ボタンの操作方法は教えてくれない。   様々なボタン操作を、何度もやり直しようやく入室。   ____入室すると、キッチンにゲートオープンキーと2つ目の専用キーが置いてありました。   説明書もなければ、ウェルカムの挨拶文もない。 5. チェックアウトは、更に何ない。   部屋にキッチンにゲートオープンキーと2つ目の専用キーを置いていくしか無い。   ということは、   地下の車をゲートオープンキーで出庫して、部屋まで行き、   ゲートオープンキーと2つ目の専用キーを置かなければいけない。   フロントはありますが、管理会社に聞け!の一点張り。 設備について、 1. 清掃は、されているのか?と思う部屋でした。   風呂は、排水口が毛で詰まっていました。かみさんが泣きながら掃除してました。   冷蔵庫には、ぶどうの食べ残しが残っていました。   食器は、使うものはすべて洗って使いました。   ソファーベットは、掃除がされていません。シーツも汚れています。替えのシーツもありません。   カーテンは、壊れています。   テレビは、写りません。 2. 外出時のオートロック方法が難しい。   内鍵をかけてから退出しなければ鍵はかかりません。それがわからず、10分以上扉の前で操作し続けました。 3. 夜の室内がすごく暗い。照明が原因です。

Response from Kennywaikikishore, General Manager at Waikiki Shore
Responded Mar 4, 2020
Aloha, The Waikiki Shore is a condominium and there are many owners who choose to operate their unit as a vacation rental property. Because each unit is individually owned, the owners choose who they would like to manage their individual unit. With this being said, as a representative of the Castle Waikiki Shore, a lot of times we empathize with guest who are booked through other management companies. Having the ONLY receptions desk often makes us the target of frustrated guest who are not traveling with Castle Resorts and while we can "lend an ear" allowing them to vent, we have to advise them to contact their own management for assistance. So we truly hope that you do give the Waikiki Shore another chance as many of the guest have great experiences and tend to come back on a yearly basis. Mahalo, Kamakani/GSA Castle Waikiki Shore

Stayed here for a week. Each apartment is individually owned so decor/standards vary amongst apartments from being modern to dated. We stayed in a modern or as they call it a premier apartment which means it has been renovated in the last few years, others it seems haven't been renovated in decades?? So choose your apartment wisely, I booked an apartment on a special but was unable to pick an individual apartment compared to other specials which was strange. Location is good being right on beach, but there is no bar or pools etc at this complex. There is a subway and Steak Shack beachfront on the complex, and the usual ABC stores everywhere. Would I stay here again, the answer would be yes but I would like to pick my apartment this time and not find out till arrival.

I booked a room in Sept 2019 for $143.00 and then tried to book the same room a year later and all the room rates jumped up 100%. What has been improved so much for this condo to jack the prices up to almost double!!! Not worth it, stay at a hotel that at least cleans your room daily with out charging.There is no pool here, no amenities. I can stay at the Trump hotel accreoos the steet for less money!!
