Why Rick Laporga chose Oahu

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!

Not Great - not terrible

  • 2 of 5

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.

i love the shave ice at the hotel beach shops. we learn to surf....so much fun

my husband and i would like to stay here again

Tired at Waikiki Shores

  • 2 of 5

A very tired unit with stained carpeting, older linens, stained pillows, cracked plastic waste baskets, non-synched TV requiring two handsets and someone's long hairs. This combined with lots of noise both later at night from restaurant across the way and early morning laundry trolleys don't allow much rest. The real kicker is the constant renovation work on other units generally commencing between 6 - 7 a.m. and lasting until evening. Best idea would be to renovate this unit and offer ear plugs to renters.

Owner's Response: Aloha! We strive to always service our guests. Towels are washed and cared for, but upon placing it on the rack an inadvertent obstacle can be hidden and out of site. So, upon inspection we do a site inspection and miss any foreign obstacle that may be hidden. When a guest calls, I respond. A new set of towels can be delivered. And this goes for anything such as nuances in the building. Security is there so I will contact (or you can contact them direct for noise in building that should not be so early in morning hours). I am glad the next door upgrades are finally over. We have a quarterly professional carpet cleaning that may change to a monthly carpet cleaning to up our service. The unit is a bargain, and we always improve (linens, accessories, etc) without major projects. Major projects will demand an increase in rental rate. So, we are in-between doing so.... Outside of construction noise that went on with the next door unit this place is really desirable and worth at least 4 Stars itself.....with it's location it's definite "5 STARS!!!"... Rick
