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!

great family vacation

The hotel was nice. It was clean and housekeeping always came in to clean it. The staff was friendly and always willing to help us in anyway that they could. It was walking distance from the beach. It had a kitchen that we were able to take full advantage of. We would stay there again if we traveled back to hawaii

Aston Waikiki Sunset

Upgraded our room to a double room after our original reservation had already been given up. Had an unobstructed view of Diamond Head, which was really nice.

Kapahulu, just a few short minutes by walking, is your gateway to really great local spots that are inexpensive and more delicious than most of touristy Waikiki. Get out there and explore!

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.

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.

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!
