Horrible hotel

The hotel did not look like the pictures at all. They said all the rooms were renovated but it's not its like a scam. My friend cried as soon as we walked in because the doors were all scatched up and it look old the loby was the size of a large bed room. We had two rooms but canceled it and went to the hawaiian Hilton instead. We came in saw it screamed and checked out. Please don't waste your time staying here it's a big scam. The renovations is just a cover up of a very very old hotel that doens't even look like it's been renovated. I booked a package and realy reget choosing this hotel thats why I ended up being frustated and had to pay a lot more for geting a last minute better hotel. So take my advice and do not stay here you will be very very disapponted.

Aston Wakiki Sunset

Fantastic location and very friendly staff. We received an Ocean view room upgrade upon check-in. The room was spotless and a perfect size for a family of four. Had a wonderful time and the value was excellent!

Great place for our family!

This hotel was perfect for us. The location was great. Not right on the beach but the walk was an easy few blocks and offered peace and quiet away from the hustle bustle of the main strip. Staff was professional and helpful. We did not use the hotel pool because we spent our "water" time at the beach but did go take a look and it looked clean and pleasant. Parking garage seemed very secure. Hotel has a mini mart inside for sunscreen, other beach items, etc. which was also convenient for us. Only minor complaint I would have is that the kitchen utensils, cookware, etc. was limited. This hotel does not offer a lot of glitz and glamour but it was clean and provided everything we needed for a great trip to Hawaii!

Very nice hotel

We wish we could have done more, but you need to reserve your attractions when you book your trip. The hotel needs to be put on the pick up list for the shuttles for the attractions. This made it very irritating for us when the shuttles would pass by the front of the hotel then the driver would have an attitude because they would have to come back around to get us. They were pretty rude.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You dont need a rental car as this hotel is in walking distance to almost everything. It is best to just walk since it is very hard to find parking and when you do find parking, its meters everywhere. Otherwise utilize the free shuttle til 430pm and the trolley for $2.00 a person. They take you all the way to the marina and the mall.
