About what I expected

Really great place to rest your head and sleep. Hotel is under new ownership and the grounds and building need alot of work. Location is good. You get what you pay for and $85 a night for a good bed isn't bad.

Falling Apart! Surprise Fees!

The website pictures look good, but the actual hotel appears to be falling apart. Half the rooms in our hallway were actually screwed shut because the building is rotting! We couldn't open our sliding door, yet there was a crack big enough to let lizards and the sound of chickens in our room at all hours. The sliding door windows were so dirty that we couldn't even see out our room and this was consistent with all the rooms. The bathroom and room had other people's hair in it and the tiling in the bathroom left much to be desired. Make sure to wear shoes/sandals at all times. The TV was an old-school tube that had bad coloring. The sheets were so used and balled up that it was actually uncomfortable to sleep on them. They also surprised us with an $18 a day amenity fee, which was a joke and actually really annoying. The only thing they offer are free movie rentals, which doesn't make sense since we're there to see the island. The only thing this place has going for it is the location. It has nice access to a beach for the price. We actually switched the the Grand Hyatt mid week, which we highly recommend! To sum it all up, if you don't plan on spending any time at the hotel other than sleeping, this makes for a fairly cheap option. Just make sure your lower your expectations so you aren't disappointed.

Kauai Trip

Hotel location is good and it's proximity to Lihue airport is a plus. Hotel room cleanliness needs a lots of improvement. Bed is sagging and comfort level is far from satisfactory. Although breakfast is provided in my package but please do not be overly joy because only coffee and a plate with no more than 4 slices of fruit was provided.

Great location for families

We loved being by a kid friendly beach but the quality of the hotel kind of felt like a motel 6 on the beach.

Weekend getaway

Location was good if you are traveling around island. Not walking distance to many restaurants and bars. The room was very clean. Pool needs some major work.

By the River Hotel

Aston is located just by the banks of Wailua River just before the river meets the sea. Coming from the airport , it shares the road that goes to Lydgate Park/Beach . So it can be tricky if you don't slow down and be attentive. Same thing if you are coming from the north going back to the hotel. Traffic can be heavy during commute hours. They have counter flow lanes in the mornings on weekdays. The place is indeed in need for some major improvements. You can notice that even the towels are worn down. The exercise room was really unusable. The free fruit plate for breakfast was consist of 4 small pieces of fruit. The location is indeed good. Just 7 minutes from the airport and it is sort of an ideal starting point of you travel north or south of the island. If you like long beach walks and then this is a good place to be. Lydgate park has a long stretch of beach access. Around 3 miles going south. The enclosed protected beach with rock barriers is good for the kids .

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

L&L Hawaiian Barbecue is not too far for take outs. Approximately 3 miles driving north. Free Hula shows at the Coconut Plantation (Also a Whalers Store in the shopping center). Location is on the right side if you are driving north before L&L Hawaiian restaurant.

Quiet and cofortable.

Good stay. Needs WfFi in the rooms. Fairley long walk to the ocean but beautiful and full of Hawaiian culture.

Central location next to Park

The staff were very helpful and cheerful. It's located next to Lydgate Park with great views of the ocean, safe place for kids to snorkel and play in water and in the center of the island making travel to other sights convenient. The main entry is lovely with internet access and places to sit. The rooms look like they have had some up dates with new counters in bathrooms. Bedspreads were new and paint looked fairly recent. Rusty ironing boards, broken safes should just be removed rather than reminding you they were past their times. We couldn't get the air conditioner to work and all the windows are in need of replacement. The pool area looked tired with old discolored lawn chairs. But all that said if you just need a place to sleep that is central and near the airport it meets your needs. They have great specials that really can bring down the price of a trip to paradise.
