The Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel in Oahu greets guests with surfboards and citrus shades in its lobby, and bright island decor and natural elements of bamboo and rattan in its guestrooms. Start the day off with live music accompanied by freshly brewed Kona coffee, tropical fruit, baked goods and many other choices, or pack these tasty treats in a complimentary cooler bag and enjoy breakfast on the beach. With wood floors, original art and hand-carved island decorations, the on-site Tiki's Grill and Bar sets a South Pacific 1950s scene that serves up braised beef short ribs and grilled salmon, alongside kid-friendly meals served, believe it or not, on Frisbees.

Not a great experience at the Aston Waikiki

I booked through O and requested a king with on the ocean front. King we got was ocean view (if you lean over the balcony which only had room for one chair.) Room was miniscule for two people. Carpet was not clean. There is not free wifi in every room as advertised. We were told only by the pool. Skip the free breakfast, it is a mob scene with people and birds. Very unsanitary. Next time we will stay at the hoted across the street. We were told by the front desk that the room we got was because we booked through O. Lots of differed maintainence. Not up to O standards or the typical properties in the area. Very disappointing experience. Buyer be ware.

Lulu's is next door. Great, small portion of prime rib and the best Mai Thai on Honolulu. Go for Happy Hour and get a seat along the rail facing the ocean. With enough Mai Thai's you will forget about how bad you hotel room is......

I will never go back to this hotel

I hate it everything about it.. Super crowded, no hot tub,at the swim pull you need it to register for the towels if you didn't bring them back you would've get charge for them, and then after we paid around 600 $ DOLLARS for 3 nights they tell me when i am checking in that there is another fee of 18 $ a day called amenity fee wich incuded some movies in the room some other things that any other hotels offer for FREE ,oh yes and the breakfast apparently was free but no, if you wanted eggs , omelet or french toast you had to pay for it.... nobody goes in vacation and wish is to leave asap.. i did hate it

Don't wast your money!

Went to Hawaii for vacation. Hotel was dirty, room small and place noisy. We placed our free breakfast in the garbage and went elsewhere to eat. We left after one night.

Family trip

Location was awful. Homeless people sleeping all over the sidewalks in front of hotel. Vagrants doing drugs and drinking immediately near the hotel made for an unsafe experience. Not the 4 star vacation I intended!!!!

Aston Waikiki Bust

Staff was rude. Charged extra $18 per day (mandatory charge) for " extra ammeneties" which included a "breakfast". Breakfast consisted of cold cereal, donuts, fruit and muffins. Not work $18. Pool is in shade and needs upgrade. Was put in a room next to elevator shaft, could not sleep. Overall bad hotel experience, I would never return to Aston Waikiki or any Aston for that matter.

Very poor accommodations

You have to have keys to operate the elevators if they work. Then when you make it to the room just hope that it is what you paid for because they do not check for the correct room accommodations. After you finally get to the room that should be correct hope that the bed has not been used and hairs are not on the bed! Was not at all please and after all this the staff wanted to upgrade us on the rooms needless to say that I was not staying there. The dust was all over the lights and the balony was standing room only no chairs so please do not lean over the rail.

Might be an ok place for the younger crowd just wanting to be in the center of the action

The hotel charged extra for just about everything. The free breakfast was a variety of pastries that were mostly mediocre to poor in quality and taste. The hotel is in a very noisy area so there was no way to sleep in due to trucks backing up and unloading very noisily. It is centrally located across from the beach and near shopping, restaurants and bars all within walking distance. The decor of the hotel was tacky beach and the room was very small. I definitely would not stay there again.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

The best place we found for a relaxing drink while watching the sunset was The House with No Key. It is a restaurant with a bar area behind it on the beach. We were entertained by music that was not too loud and hula by Miss Hawaii and a darling little girl. The appetizers are also very good. I would highly recommend this place.
