Please do not stay in this hotel

This hotels location was good.The staff was helpful.However the first suite we checked into had cockroaches.We brought this matter immediately to the attention of the hotel front desk and they provided us another suite. Unfortunately we continued to have the same problem with the cockroaches in the second suite that we moved into. We finally spent the rest of the vacation installing baits for the c ockaroaches to prevent them from getting into our suitcases.I would never reccomend this hotel to anyone. I will be requesting a refund for all the inconvenience caused.

Great place to stay

We didn't need to be on the beach, so this hotel was a perfect choice for us. The room was spotless, the staff really helpful and friendly, and the minimart on site made it easy to pick up snacks, etc.. We could see the beach and ocean from the balcony, which was comfortably set up with a small table and 2 chairs. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. There's an activity person (concierge) who was super friendly and helpful about getting us tours to Pearl Harbor and a luau with discounts, plus he was great at giving us directions and schedules for buses, so we really didn't need a car.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're not locked in to a hotel on the beach, picking a hotel that's not on, even just 3 blocks off, will save you a lot in room costs. Getting one with a kitchen lets you have breakfast and lunch in the room, so you can splurge on dinner.

Locals go to Walmart or swap meet for their stuff. Local market is very expensive. There is a ross a few blocks down as well, less expensive for bathing suits/towels.

Great Stay For the Family

Excellent location, clean, and a real kitchen fully equipped. Great for a family, we enjoyed it. Only minor items were elevator wait times & narrow parking spots, both of which you can plan for & work around. Definately Recommended!!

Great value, nice staff, good location in Waikiki.

Visited family and did some business. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Relatively quiet and staff was friendly and responsive to a broken curtain wand which was fixed immediately. Store in the building was convenient and the kitchen was helpful in preparing breakfast and late night snacks. Saved lots of $$! Wish they didn't charge so much for parking and the mandatory resort fee. All in all a good value for what you get. I also like the DVD and game rentals.

Comfortable-ish, but Watch out for Surprise Fees

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in February of 2013. We had a king suite that included a pull out in the living room, along with a full kitchen. The king bed was comfortable, the pull out was tolerable (had to sleep there for the first night as I was sick), the kitchen was fine, and the living room's seating was tolerable but fairly uncomfortable (hard couch and chairs). The hotel's location is almost perfect: it's only a two block walk to the beach and definitely less expensive than the hotels right on the water. The hotel's maid service was fine, though the hotel doesn't offer room service of any sort. However, my biggest problem with the hotel was the surprise $15/day mandatory "amenity fee" they charge for internet and a daily paper. Though the hotel's details page lists it not, it didn't back when we booked. For two weeks this was a significant extra charge, and a very unpleasant surprise, too boot. Overall, this surprise has soured me on the hotel.

None of the food in Waikiki was amazing, but Tiki's was probably the best (the bar area, not the dining area, which had a different menu). Excellent drinks menu and the live entertainment was fantastic.

Aston Waikiki

Great value and location. The kitchenette was very handy and well furnished; like a full kitchen. Saved $s by having healthy breakfasts when we liked. Safeway was a 5min drive, or short walk to ABC/Food Pantry. Ocean view from 29th floor was excellent. The beach was only two blocks away. A few complaints: Room AC poorly designed. Air vent was right over bed and loud. Temperature Controls gave only full blast or none. The "low fan" option just blasted sporadically; kicking in just as you started to fall asleep again. This time of year, got away with chilling room down and shutting it off, doubt that would work in summer. The bed definitely needed a new mattress: very soft with a pit in the middle. The daily Ammenities fee of $10 (over & above the added parking fees) has no value at all, as others have reported. The DVDs were nothing current, and we didn't come to Waikiki to watch movies anyways. Parking fee is the same scam in any big city hotel on the globe, so not much you can do there. Hotel did have visible security in the lobby and on the grounds (including the garage). Wireless internet in-room would have been nice in the 21st century, but they did provide a cable for kicking it old school. Otherwise just use your phone. Pool is on north side of hotel, too cool w/o sun in November, but mite be nice in summer. Location is on the quieter east of Waikiki strip. Stayed at Ohana East several years ago which is now ironically the more active part of the area. Overall, the Aston was a good value.

If you like Udon and Tempura, you must go to Marukame Udon on Kuhio St. Alway a line to get in, but worth the 15-20min wait for absolutely delicious Japanese cuisine. Also don't miss Nakamura Ramen on strip at Kalakaua Ave and Beachwalk, generous portions and very tasty.
