“Worth approx. $110 a night for room without a view.”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

PROS:
-Not one bug found in room in over a week's stay
-Strong central air con.
-Could open Lanai door for a great breeze
-Nice pool area
-Great location across street from the beach

CONS:
-Homeless hanging out on the corner at night
-Busy bus-stop right in front of hotel entrance
-The least expensive rooms have views of the hotel next door so we had to keep the curtains closed when changing which was often upon waking up ,getting dressed, changing into pool attire, and later into beach wear.
-Staff begins closing the pool 20-30 minutes BEFORE sunset.
-Pillows all too soft

Aloha BegininngTrekker,

Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review regarding your recent stay at Park Shore Waikiki. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our great location and property features. I appreciate your feedback on the Cons. The Hotel Room category does view the property next door, and I recommend that you stay in either the Partial Ocean View, Ocean View, or Ocean Front rooms to truly enjoy the property. We are working with the City & County of Honolulu on the city wide homeless problem, and hopeful for a long term solution. We hope that you are able to return again in the future, and we will ensure that you have an even better stay on your next visit.

Mahalo,

Scott Pauli

Parkshore hotel is very well situated at the east end of Waikiki beach and looks onto Diamond Head the extinct volcano. Mid range priced, the hotel has a fine pool on the third floor. Some rooms have a sea view, others a part sea view and some a park view. Rooms comfortable and well managed and cleaned. Great staff who will go out of their way to assist. Valet parking. This was the third time we visited (from Scotland) and I am sure we will use again. You will go a long way to find an all encompassing hotel at these prices.
Alan Jones

Room Tip: Part sea view is worth the little extra.

This hotel was perfectly located right at the end of the Waikiki Beach strip; a small stroll along the street to the hub bub of Waikiki. The room was clean and comfortable; with good bathroom and aircon working well. Concierge were very helpful with the valet parking (quick collection) and loan of beach chairs (great for our drive around the island). Beach towels are available for sign out at no fee. The pool in small but perfect for a dip watching the world go by on the beach.

I would highly recommend this hotel. From the moment we arrived to the time we left the staff were very friendly and helpful. One staff member in particular Violet made our stay here very memorable, Violet was very helpful, friendly and also went the extra mile for us. The rooms modern, neat and very clean and we had a lovely view of the beach and also Diamond Head. We loved that the hotel was end of the Waikiki strip and that you were at the quieter end but still an easy walk to everything. Loved that you had free Wi-Fi which kept our 17 year old daughter happy. When we come back to we will definitely stay here again.

We had a one night stay over on Waikiki after a week in Kauai. Stayed in the one bedroom suite. Our two teenage boys bunked in the living room on a roll away and sofa bed. (no charge for the roll away). Nicely appointed room (nice bathroom and shower as well), spacious, and great view of the ocean. Hotel staff was friendly and informative (A+ on every account). Can't remember the name, but the deli next door to the hotel serves healthy vegetarian and non vegetarian fare at a reasonable price. That was a huge bonus, as we often struggle to find fresh health food on the go. The Park Shore put a superb finishing touch on our first family vacation to Hawaii. Will definitely stay here again.

We picked Park Shore because of its value and close proximity to the beach. Its location at the East end of the Waikiki strip turned out to be very convenient to get away to other parts of Oahu like Diamond Head, Koko Crater, Hanauma Bay, Kane'ohe, etc. The Waikiki strip is a traffic nightmare at times, so if you plan to explore beyond Waikiki, this could be the perfect hotel for you. Even if you plan to spend your entire trip in Waikiki, its still a decent choice.

Note: we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and were given a "free upgrade" from a standard room to a partial ocean view (see photo).

PROS
- Steps away from Waikiki Beach (the "slightly" less busy end too!)
- Convenient location to 'escape' Waikiki to other parts of the island
- Wonderful "picnic food" shop (Tucker + Bevvy)
- Bar & Grill is one of the most popular nightlife spots on the Waikiki strip
- Surf School, ABC Store, Expedia expert, Starbucks all in lobby or adjacent
- FREE WI-FI (a must for all hotels I stay at)

CONS
- Small room (not a huge deal as we didn't spend much time there)
- Busy street corner, noisy on lanai or with door open
- Pool faces same busy street corner
- Wifi is a bit slow unless you pay for upgrade (its enough for email and browsing though, just don't try to download an iTunes movie in under 24 hours!)
