Location is ideal

Hotel difficult to find. Signage not clear from the street. Picture not indicative of actual hotel. Rooms small & very compact..OK accomodations for someone who wants just a place to store luggage, shower & sleep. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Hotel rooms could use some updating. Our room had a half painted ceiling. Needs better in room lighting. Furniture old looking, not antiques. Have to admit location is ideal, right across the street from the beach. Room not very inviting to relax in though.

Economic and great location..

Aston beachside is an economic place to stay. It has the perfect location in the central of Waikiki beach and so close to the Duke's statue. Although the rooms are very small and if you are not in ocean front room, then it can become a little suffocating. The bathrooms are well maintained. Overall and average experience.

Hotel Pictures are VERY misleading

The entrance and lobby foreshadow the overall experience you get from this hotel; grimey and disgusting. The elevator looked like it has never been serviced, and the room i booked had no window! The only highlight of this hotel was that it was a beachfront hotel, in the heart of waikiki and close to many good restaurants. Stay here if you don't plan to be in your room to relax and don't mind if your stuff can potentially be stolen by the staff. Oh yeah the staff is about a 2 star in my book too.

Great location and staff!

This hotel was great for the price. We received great value because it was right across from the beach. The staff was very friendly. The hotel rooms are small but clean. The bathroom is the nicest part of the room, but in Oahu we barely spent time in our hotel room so it worked out perfectly. There is construction as they renovate the hotel but it usually wasn't too early in the morning. It is located right next to an ABC store and great sushi is right down the street.

Great location for the price

After checking in, we entered a room with no windows or even a balcony. Staff quickly suggested that we upgrade to an ocean view suite for additional fee. When we informed them that no where in room description did it say we would be staying in a jail sell, they gave us a room with a small balcony facing another building. But any light is better than none. For the price, this is a great location, but unless you get ocean view suite, rooms were below our minimum expectaions.

No frills but who cares - I'm in Hawaii!

Small hotel, 6 rooms per floor I think. Rooms are small but we were gone most of the day and just needed a place to sleep. If you're looking for a fancy hotel - this is not it but if you want a decent/ budget friendly place to stay this is great. Our group had 3 rooms and all of us loved the beds. We didn't know there wasn't a bathtub - only showers. They have beach towels and blow dryers so you don't have to bring them. The market place is just a couple of blocks away and great for souvenirs and the food court - it goes really far back and we didn't find the food court til the last day! Blazin steaks is a simple asian food place a block behind the hotel with great food and great prices! ABC store is right next door for anything you need and McD's right beside that. There are awesome street performers and crafters at night that were very entertaining. We were dying to snorkel and we just bought snorkels from the ABC store and found the best spot was RIGHT in front of the hotel out by the wall. Schools of fish and we even saw a huge sea turtle! There guys outside the hotel that offer a huge discount on certain things if you listen to the 90 min timeshare shpill. We got a discount on a rental van for the week out of the deal and felt like it was worth spending our time (again with the budget). Of course we didn't buy the timeshare thing - it's a total rip off. The location is great - right off the beach , close to everything.
