Couldn't have had better service any other place.

The closet was in the bathroom which was inconvenient. Would have liked a small coffee pot and coffee in the room before setting out for the day. There were no windows in the room so had to go out the door to look out and determine the weather.

More than i expected

I thought I was getting a room with two twin beds, instead I got a room overlooking the beach and a queen bed. Nice upgrade

Hawaii is gorgeous!

The hotel is located in among other hotels across from the beach. Great location. The staff was always nice and accommodating. The room was small but we didn't spend much time in it. Parking is not included. Was 22.00 a day. A little pricey but was apparently the going rate. There was no pool. I like the beach but sometimes I just want to relax poolside away from the beach crowd. There wasn't an ice machine.

Great Location

Great location. Partial ocean view rooms has lots of noise from A/C of the adjacent building. Interior A/C is also a in-wall unit and quite noisy as well. I needed ear plugs. Some Room Key problems as well. Otherwise a lovely location and great people that work in the hotel make up for these smaller inconveniences...

Great Location

It's a very nice location in Waikiki. Hotel is better than most other 2-3 star hotels around that area. Parking is adjacent and valet-type but not too complicated ($23/day - dec 2013). There are some issues with shower doors so bathrooms get soaked up, and also sometimes key cards are not working, but those are really minor technical glitches that excellent staff makes up for as much as they can!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Do not stay in Waikiki for beach activities. It's definitely the worse water quality you will find on the island. Go pick one beach on North Shore and/or Kailua region and just spend your sun/swim time there away from hustle and bustle of Waikiki. You should rent a car for that purpose as The Bus may be too complicated to take around the island, although it exists!

Aston Waikiki Beachside

This hotel does not offer any thing special at all incuding room service. It is very hard to find but the location is the best thing about it. It is located just across the street from the beach where you can swim, snorkel or surf with in 5 minutes of grabbing your towel. The first night we were there we were given a room that seemed like a made over utility closet. You could not secure any thing other than a phone which you could put in the little closet safe. We had a saggy bed, a door with a window right next to it where you could see people had put their hands through the screen to open the door. We complained and were moved to a room with a regular door and a window out to the beach

Great Location, Reasonable Price

We were very pleased to find that we could walk out the door and practically have our feet in the beautiful waters of Waikiki Beach. We have family staying at a different hotel and it was super easy to meet up with them. This hotel is close to the beach, minutes away from highway access, within walking distance the fantastic Tiki Grill restaurant and wonderful Hula Grill restaurant and the awesome Rumfire Bar at the Sheraton. I would definitely stay here again but if it's important to have a tv in your room and breakfast service at your hotel you might want to look elsewhere. But my advice would be to book this hotel but just call a few days before and say "I'd like to make sure I have a working tv in my room and I'd like a room facing the beach." Overall we were very pleased with our stay. You don't go to Oahu to watch tv and there's a breakfast restaurant right outside the hotel.

The best Mai Tai can be found at the restaurant in the Aston Beach Hotel. The restaurant is called Tiki's Grill and Bar. Order the 1944 Mai Tai it is THE BEST MAI TAI ON THE ISLAND!
