Location, location, location!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 4, 2008

The best part of this hotel is.......location! The Park Shore is located right by the Honolulu Zoo at the end of the hotel strip. From the Park Shore you have great views of the beach and the Diamond Head Crater. The beach across the street from the Park Shore seems to be the best beach in Waikiki and being that its the last hotel on the strip it doesn't feel as cramped. From the Park Shore its a 10 minute bus ride to the Diamond Head Crater and its a hop and a skip to the beach. The hotel itself is very nice, they have a excellent sushi bar in the lobby and the rooms are small but good enough. They were in the midst of renovating the Hotel when I was there in Oct. 2006, I was given one of the new model rooms so my review of the room is up to date as a result. They were putting flat screen TV's in every room and the bathroom was completely modernized with the latest looks. The beds were excellent. Again the only real drawback is that the rooms are small. The pool area is not much different from a Motel 6 pool, just concrete and water. Service was fine, nothing outstanding but nothing bad to speak of. Bottom line stay here for the location, its not a resort and it doesn't pretend to be.

Best of Waikiki, without the ridiculous pricetag!

My wife and I stayed at the Park Shor Waikiki during the first week in August, 2005. I had scored a fantastic deal on the internet, so we were nervous about what we would see.

When we arrived at the hotel, I let out a breath I was not aware I was holding. The lobby is an open spacious room. Inviting and bright, the gentle breeze ushered us in to a charming staff and hassle free check in.

For the $97/night I was paying (for a partial ocean view by the way), I didn't really expect much but I was really surprise by how nice the place really turned out to be. Of course it is no Hilton or Princess, but it isn't some seedy Motel 6 either.

You probably won't find the deal I got, it took months of research and bargaining, but you will find very nice rooms around $110 - $150. And remember, this hotel is ON the beach, it isn't tucked away three blocks away or anything. In fact, the Park Shore is directly across from the beach where they show the "Movie on the Beach."

Beach on one side, and a beautiful little park on the other. Paradise.

Unique Quality: Park Shore is attached to a Starbucks, a Japanese restaurant, and Lulu's Restaurant.

Lulu's has the best breakfast you can get in Hawaii! With it's panoramic views of Diamond Head and Waikiki beach, you can relax with a cocktail or sushi from 7am to 4am.

The hotel has a pool and sundeck..... but you are 15 seconds from the beach!!!

Directions: If you are on the Beach. Go East, it's the last Hotel before you hit the parks.

A jewel in Waikiki

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I read up on the hotel in trip advisor before booking and I was a little hesitant because of some of the reviews. My priorities were location and cleanliness and I was not disappointed..

There are 2 towers (the Shore and Park towers), and downstairs there is an ABC store, a Japanese restaurant, Lulu's Surf Club and Starbucks.

I read that the Shore tower was renovated a few years back so I requested a room there, and it looked pretty much like the picture on their website. It could use a new coat of paint but for the location and view, it didn't seem that important. You might be better off getting a room with a view (either ocean view or oceanfront) because the room itself is very basic and a little on the small side.

Room service was available (during certain hours) from Lulu's downstairs and the staff were very helpful and kind.

Unique Quality: Right at the end of Kalakua Avenue so it is on the quiet part of Waikiki. Across the road is the beach itself and to the left is Kapiolani Park and Honolulu Zoo.

Quiet end of Waikiki

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 15, 2005

I reserved two Deluxe Ocean View rooms with two beds in each room. What I got was not what I expected. Both rooms only had one bed in them. The second bed was a roll away cot. In one of the rooms, once the cot was set up, there was no room to walk around the beds. The other room was a handicap room, so it was much more spacious. (both rooms were in the 'newly renovated' section of the building.). The handicap room was on the ocean side of the hotel. The other was actually on the side of the hotel, but you could see the ocean if you went out on the balcony (see photo).

There was on-site parking, but it cost extra.

The rooms were clean, and they provided nice soap and shampoo - not the usual cheap stuff.

Unique Quality: The hotel is right across the street from the beach and the zoo at the quiet end of waikiki. They seemed to have movies and concerts on the beach on weekend nights. There is a Starbucks, a japanese restaurant and a convenience store on premises.

Not like it is represented!!!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 26, 2004

Accomodations were terrible--We had a "Deluxe Room". Just a small box. We asked to upgrade--said nothing was available. Told them A/C was leaking--10 days later upon checking out, someone came to door-maintenance to fix it--approx. 6 calls to request it be fixed. Room had a very sour/moldy smell. Housekeeper sometimes did not make up one bed, no room to move about, not the cleanest. Has 3-star rating. Could possibly be rated a 2 star. Hotel lobby stunk of smells from the Japenese Restaurant--nauseating...Elevators jumped and lurched. On the web says there is a Denny's located on premises--no longer there. Our booking agent still thought there was Denny's there. Says balconies have furniture????????
Why did we stay---Honolulu was packed!!! For a decent price upgrade it would have cost us a small fortune---we were paying for 5 people (two rooms), for 10 nights. I would not suggest anyone staying here.

P.S. When booking reservation, we were told we would get a daily Starbuck's coupon, for coffee and muffin. When we requested this at Front Desk--told it did not apply to us. Told we could upgrade at first--then denied. A lot of other "disgruntled" guests.
Thouroughly misrepresentated on websites and through tour company.

Unique Quality: Beach right accross the street.
