          After arriving on a late night flight we discovered the hotel had overbooked their ocean front rooms. We had booked months ago so were not so happy. After a good night sleep we decided to make the most of what we had and enjoy our time in Hawaii.

          The staff was great at the park shore, they were helpful with directions and finding the cheapest points of interest. We upgraded to suite with an ocean view room at a great price and we rented surfboards and the staff had no problem storing them over night for us. The lobby was under construction so it was a bit of an eye sore but only steps from the elevator was the amazing view of the ocean so who can complain! Also the bar LuLu's is attached to the hotel it is open early for breakfast and open late (3 or 4am) with a great party scene. I would stay at the park shore again and again no problem, waking up to the ocean, diamond head point and the pink flamingos at the zoo next door are just some of the little things I enjoyed at an awesome price!

          This place had everything we needed.The staff were friendly, it had a pretty sweet pool and it was clean.
          It also had a good bar connected to it called Lulu's and the food was reasonalbly priced and had $4 cocktails and $3 beers from 3-5pm daily.
          The beach was just accross the road to which was perfect.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Park Shore Waikiki Honolulu

          Great Choice


          This was my first visit to any part of Hawaii and I am very happy I chose the Park Shore for my stay. The location is great because it is near the beach, within a walk to many locations, and right on the bus line.The Park Shore has affordable rates for the area, the accomodations were clean and stocked (and kept that way), and the staff was very courteous and helpful. What more can you ask for?

          Pros and Cons - Nothing's Perfect


          PRO: We chose the hotel because of it's price and location for our April, 2003 vacation. We assumed it would be quieter because of the zoo next door. We had a great unobstructed view of Diamondhead and the ocean with surf sounds throughout the night, but--CON: being a corner room closest to the zoo, our room on the 11th floor was constantly flooded with fumes from the bus route down below, so we had to keep the lanai doors closed.PRO: Very helpful staff; inexpensive compared to other hotels; Corner room with wonderfully comfortable King Bed was small but newly rennovated and clean with real mugs for coffee and other nice amenities including Bath & Body Works products. No bathroom fan, but adequate ventillation system. CON: Very little drawer space; we lived out of our suitcases. The one sink was in by the toilet. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

          Glad we chosed it


          I read countless reviews on your web site before our vacation, but you know the old saying, you just have to see for yourself. Well, we lucked out. We were totally satisfied with the good location at the end of wakiki beach. While we were there, we visited some of the other pricey hotels like the Sheraton, the Hilton and such. They were really nice but for 200.00 or more a night? For what we paid per night, our next trip back we will be staying once again at the Park Shore Hotel. When we arrived, we were booked into a standard room. We were hoping without asking to be upgraded to a deluxe, as a previous reviewer had been upgraded. It never came. Later that week, we had relatives coming in, and we told them about the Park Shore. When the came, they got a deluxe room, so we were able to compare our standard room on the 9th floor with their room on the 15th. We had a good view of the ocean and diamond head, but one downside that i could see, was that there was no fan in the bathroom. My sister in law said that she didnt have one in their deluxe room either. The hotel is old and not as fancy as some of the others, but, hey, for the price it was well worth it. With the money we saved, we ate at some of those other fancy hotels. The maids were friendly and so were all the other employees. Two days there, and we were on a first name basis. Also as a plus, on the bottom floor of the hotel was a convenience store, an authentic japanese restaurant and a 24hour Denny's restaurant that came in real handy. The deluxe room had nicely tiled floors in the bathroom, new drapes, and real coffee mugs. Yes, our rugs were old and stained, but we loved our balcony and view, and didn't spend much time in the room anyway. We were busy using the money we saved on great activities. The ironing board, coffee maker, and refridgerator came in very handy and the furniture was nice. We will defintely return to the Park Shore. Chris and Jim

          Great Deal!


          I only gave this hotel a neutral rating because it was my first time to the area and I have nothing to compare it to. My wife and I had a great stay here though. We were surprised we got such a nice view of the ocean/beach since we had paid one of the lowest prices listed. The staff displayed good aloha spirit and were very helpful.If the future treats us well, we'll be back!

          Even better than the website


          Just got back. Loved this place. Small room, but clean with great view (room 1417). It's got a convenient garage, not too big like the places closer to the downtown. Quiet, on edge of zoo, and overlooking the pier and outdoor movie screen. Be sure to get a "Deluxe" room. They are remodeled and nice.

          Had a Great Time!


          This was my first trip to Hawaii, so didn't really know where to stay. After reviewing many hotels, we decided on the Park Shore, mainly because of the price. It turned out to be a great decision! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was fine. They are in the process of upgrading, so not everything was new, but for the price, who cares! It was clean and comfortable, and the view was to die for! We are planning to return (hopefully to live, at some point!), and would only stay at the Park Shore. Thanks to all of the staff for making our dream trip and dream come true!

          Had A Great Time


          The Park Shore is in a great location and has a great activitys desk. If you rent a car for the day there is parking at the zoo next door to the park shore for 25 cents and hour we found that to be very convenient. All the amenities were great but go deluxeand get a king size bed.

          Old - But wait a minute...


          I have just read the poor reviews of the Park Shore Hotel and I have to say something on there behalf. With the exception of the year 2002 due to several deaths in our family, my wife and I have stayed at The Park Shore Hotel every May and September since about 1980 or so. We have stayed in much fancier hotels in the Waikiki area over the years and we have spent a ton money to do it. So for those of you who have found the Park Shore a little less than glamorous, it all comes down to this: What do you want to do in Hawaii - stay in a room all day or sightsee Hawaii? If you want to sit in a well landscaped and expensive area sipping Mai Tai's, then go to the Sheraton or Hilton Hawaian Village and see if the crowds there are more to your pocket book. We personally only use hotel rooms to take showers and change outfits in for the next tour. FYI, we don't dispute the old place is getting a bit long in the tooth and a little thread bare here and there. But it's still the handest place to stay if you want to see Waikiki and Oahu without spending a lot of cash. There are plenty of other ways to spend money in Hawaii without paying a fortune for a room that you will likely spend most of your time sleeping in anyway. And for the person who thought the hotel staff was uncaring then you must have not met Dalton one of the friendliest people I've ever had the pleasure to know. The entire staff has always done it's best to keep the place neat and clean dispite what they have to work with. Everyone at the Park Shore has always bent over backwards to accomodate us if it was possible to help in any way. One last comment for the person who thought they were treated poorly remember this. Hawaii is not a foreign country - it's America. If you give any American attitude, you will get attitude in return. My wife and I have stayed at the Park Shore for more than twenty years and we hope to return to the Park Shore for twenty more. Aloha

          Unhappy 30th Anniversary


          On 1/20/03 we arrived at the Park Shore with five other couples. We made it very clear that we were a group. Upon our arrival the room key machine was broken so each couple had to be taken to their room with the emergency key to get in the room. That took a little while. The first room we were taken to had twin beds in it . After I said I don't think so back down to the desk we go. The next room we were given was a smoking room that smelled to high heavens. The furnishings in the room were very old. Every couple that we were with were on a different floor. So much for being a group. Three of the other couples were upgraded to oceanview rooms and three of us were not . But at least the other two couples rooms were upgraded and pleasant. I was the one that planned this whole trip. It was my 30th anniversary and I was in Hawaii [my dream vacation] in a smelly room that was very depressing. As I sat on the bed in tears my husband went down to the desk and explained the situation to the front desk personal they said that there no more rooms available that they would see what they could do tomorrow. Well guess what tomorrow never came. The front desk personal did not care what happens to the guests just don't bother them. The fact that they upgraded half our group and not the other half really has me upset and then not do anything about it. I guess you get what you pay for. The location of the hotel was nice and Hawaii is beautiful it's just to bad I had to stay out of my room to enjoy it. Next time I will not accept the room until it is right I don't care how long it takes.

          Very tired hotel


          This was my third stay since 1988, and they haven't done much, if anything, to the sleeping rooms. Beautiful location, gorgeous views, but the carpets are filthy, old, bathrooms have rust and mold. Spartan is an appropriate description. We wanted to move to another hotel but it was too much trouble, endured it for 4 nights. Condition of bathroom floors are such you are out of there ASAP. No ventilation in bathrooms. Nice balconies. Staff members are courteous and pleasant. Price is the selling point.

          ... the windows must be the reason. Most of the hotel/motel/hostel rooms I stayed at during this trip so far had window-wise nothing to offer. In most cases it was better to keep to curtains shut. In contrast, at Lucky D's I had much window space and it was great to toss the curtains back into the corners of the room. The room was flooded with warm light. In addition, the windows could actually be openend. And not just any way, but the old-fashioned way ...
