Why Rick Laporga chose Waikiki
Efficient and comfortable. Not too many beachfront property offers full kitchen and washer/dryer in unit! Most buildings in Waikiki was built in the 1970's including the Waikiki Shore, but is one of the best maintained properties in Waikiki. Surrounding the Waikiki Shore is the Trump Tower and Sheraton Waikiki Hotel which in comparison in rates, Waikiki Shore is a fraction of the cost and they are not as "Beachfront" as you will find the Waikiki Shore which you will discover when you get here.
What makes this Hotel unique
Beach front property and a very comfortable unit that is efficient! This is an owner managed unit that has hired Rick Laporga to assist in your stay. This is like having a private concierge!

Location- Location- Location
The condo is in a very nice location to the beach, bus route, shops, and everything else you want. The condo apt. was large enough for us for the 2 weeks we spent there. The apt could use some updates but for the price we paid as compared to other highly priced rooms was fair. Real Estate agents were very cooperative and responsive to our needs in regards to parking across the street and several minor issues. The carpet in the room was clean but needs to go. The tiled part is adequate and if entirely tiled would be a positive. We enjoyed the fireworks from our lanai and watching the sunset .The only really noise was from the garbage trucks in the am when the backed up.Beyond that is very quiet in the rest of the condo. We have stayed in other sections of Waikiki and liked this section as not congested as other parts.
Not Great - not terrible
Waikiki Shore is an awesome building/location that can't be beat, but this unit is not the best. High marks for communication with Rick and his staff, but the unit (as all other reviews attest) really needs improvement, or seriously discounted pricing. Yes, the food smell and laundry noise wafts up to this unit and there is nothing that can be done about that - thus an appropriate discount would be in order. (Also ongoing construction noise in the daytime - jackhammering the wall next door. It's not their fault, but I know of other owners offering partial refunds in concession when this happens.) The unit itself really should be refreshed and updated. Seriously, you guys hear it again and again - replace the small area of old, stained, worn carpet with tile and you'll get better reviews! (Wouldn't cost you much, and could probably be DONE in a day!) It really is tacky, and doesn't look/feel clean. Also, the bedding (sheets/covers) are old and had a strange, strong "air freshener" odor - as if sprayed rather than laundered." Another cheap/easy fix! Other than that, the unit was clean and nice. Less updated than others in the building we have stayed in, but OK. My real complaint was the misleading charges. The rate advertised nearly doubled by the time all the extra fees and charges were added. We have stayed several times in this building and paid much less for the same size (nicer) unit - half the "cleaning fee and no additional fees. Sorry.
4th visit to Waikiki Shores-great location! This was one of the nicest units we've stayed in and Miki was very attentive!
Just the right size for a couple
Would definitely stay here again
