"So little for so much"
Given a room with twin beds. Room was small and electrical outlets were few and hard to get to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is good, service was dissappointing !"
Stay was okay, Disappointed because I had booked a room for the Aston Waikiki beach hotel which included Wi-Fi. Once checking in they told me they were booked and sent me next door to a different hotel. When I checked in next door they were charging me for Wi-Fi!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location!"
I had read the reviews to the hotel with both positive and negative comments. We were pleasantly surprised to find both the room and the staff to exceed our expectations. The bed was extremely comfortable. Location was great! We will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I found the staff at this hotel very friendly but there are few amenities and parking is $23 per day in addition to the room cost. Location is fantastic probably one of the best locations in Waikiki. Despite few amenities and old decor, I would probably stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for one night sleep"
We stayed in the room on 10th floor. There was no window in the room. The room was small, old but clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room with a view of Waikiki beach"
No lobby to speak of. Other than a view of the beach that I paid extra for and a good location, the hotel itself is not memorable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Entrance is not obvious driving, parking is at a sister hotel (you walk to.) I will sum up the gross and moist room, linens, elevator and stairs that lead onto the street with we had this hotel booked for our return to Oahu before the mainland and I cancelled and booked elsewhere. But if you're on a budget and all you care about is walking across the […] street to the beach, this hotel is for you. If I were the Aston chain I would take my name off this one.

Nice place, great location! Service was awesome! but the room was far too cold and had a very antique smell. Floors were freezing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best value hotel in Waikiki"
This the last best value hotel on the main street in Waikiki.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best historical 1960's Hotel value in Waikiki"
This is one of the best values on the Waikiki strip. For around $110.00 per night for the location is exceptional. The $250.00 you save per night compared to other hotels on the main road of Waikiki Beach you can buy a lot of coffee and service not provided with the savings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Much needed relaxing break!"
I needed a very relaxing break and the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel was the answer. It is located across the street from Kuhio Beach in Waikiki, perfect for just walking across the street and grabbing an umbrella and chairs and just kicking back. Plenty of stores and food all around. No car needed, but I rented one and took a trip to North Shore to […] watch the big swells come in. Great week! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay great location would be nice if they had a place to sit in lobbyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hole in the wall by the beach"
Elevator is the size of a closet, dirty and dated. Rooms are small and old. Hotel needs to be renovated desperately.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice place to visit but..."
Good location. Building is old and it shows. Small rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, very outdated"
I got a room with no window! There was a glass panel on the only door, facing to the corridor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"horrible don't waste your time or money!"
This place was horrible I booked a king bed room they gave me a queen so I went back down to ask hotel registration clerk and the said "we don't have any left, so you get what you get" no refund nothing to make up for it! The rooms were old and cramped and the bed was horrible! I will never stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"we will be back again before june"
the help were fantastic...the location right across from the public beach couldn't have been better...the price for the room was more lower then I could have asked forGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT LOCATION - PLEASANT STAY"
The "Astin" name doesn't necessarily guarantee a luxury or 3 star status, as this hotel was just good enough to enjoy the Waikiki area and beyond.First ,and this might not matter to some, was the the non-HD TV, which, in this day and age,should be a standard IMHO.Crummy reception and also, no Premium cable channels(missed the final Boardwalk Empire!)No […] pay per view or movies service either. No coffee machine, which even your run of the mill motels have. Parking costs an additional $22.00 per night, and Expedia should have that in CAPITAL letters when you purchase. They share valet parking with an adjacent hotel, which you had to walk to and of course tip every time. The humidity that comes with any Hawaii trip seemed much worse with the tile floors(there was no carpets or rugs, and bare feet felt slippery and clammy on the floor,I had to put socks on.It was as if they put a hotel room in the kitchen, I've never stayed at a hotel with a tile floor for an entire room. Shower was great,(no bath) ,staff very friendly. Beyond these minor things, a nice stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Nice Waikiki Beach view. Across the street from beach. Very clean. Affordable price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved our stay!"
Just recently spent our honeymoon at Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel and we really enjoyed our stay here. Everything was convenient, right in front of the beach, walking distance to a lot of restaurants and shops and the trolleys stop just across the street. Thank you for the friendly staff that made our stay memorable!Genuine Expedia guest review
Really hard to find this hotel best advice look for macdonalds on corner take a left and take the first left into a hotel. This is where the parking is for this hotel,once car is parked finding hotel is easy to get to!!!!! The concierge was amazing and despite the age of hotel we had a great view of Waikiki beach and the sunsets from our ocean front […] balcony Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Older hotel, historic apparently. Staff was wonderful.. very friendly. Room had cockroaches that came out when opening the closet.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice get away"
it was very pleasantGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room with no windows in Hawaii!"
They tried to give us a room with no windows that smelled like mildew and was in the dead center of the hotel by the elevator. Everything looked old and dated. We felt like we were paying for a cheap hotel room in a third world country where you were just happy to have a double bed and a bathroom to yourself. Not worth the price at all! We asked to […] leave immediately and booked another hotel near by. Please don't waste your money here, you can find so much better for the same price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent service. Most noteworthy the receptionist is very helpful when we signed out..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inexpensive, hotel on Waikiki."
The staff was very helpful. The beach was right across the street - very convenient. The price was right, excellent, for where the hotel is located. No coffee in room or lobby - didn't work well for us. Room was very small, therefore not a place we wanted to spend much time. We wouldn't recommend this hotel to friends because they would be willing […] to pay more for higher quality - it worked for us because we were on a tight budget. A "king-sized bed" meant two singles pushed together. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Air conditioner in room not good. Room clean,"
don't get room up grade to pool view, room smaller than partial view rooms. Concierege took my cash for room up grade plus charged my debit card. Bank had me overdrawn for several days till it fell off. Also lobby temp unbearable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location first class"
Air conditioning constant loud noise almost interfering with your thinking processGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not as it was listed..."
We booked the room because the hotels.com listing said they had a crib. When we got there we were told there was no cribs available and they never had cribs. The room was non-smoking, but stunk like cigaretts. The hotel did not have WI-fi and parking was in a building down the street so we had to cary our luggage down the street to the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Location and Price"
This hotel is absolute tops when it comes to location, price, and awesomeness of staff. The building itself is a little older, and is not luxury hotel. So you have to ask yourself, what are you looking for in your Hawai'ian vacation? We wanted to not only enjoy Waikiki and Honolulu, we also wanted a home base to explore the rest of O'ahu. Location - […] Right in the middle of Waikiki Beach. All the action you want, just a few steps away. Parking - The valet garage is around the corner at a sister hotel. You have to check in to the main hotel first; so pull up on Kalakaua Avenue, check in, get a valet ticket, then go < 50 ft around the corner to park. The valets were awesome about helping us get checked in on the first night. Staff - Hands down, the best hotel/travel staff I've ever encountered. We had some initial glitches upon checkin. The hotel safe was missing the lock and we had some problems with the AC leaving moisture on the tile floor. Both fixed right away when we asked. They also got us a shower chair. The staff was all very friendly and willing to help you go find a secret spot on the island or tell you the best roads to take to avoid the traffic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aston Beachside disappointment."
We gave our taxi driver the address and name of the Aston hotel but accidently dropped us off at another Aston which can easily get mixed up with the smaller hotel by the beach. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We asked for two twin beds but non were left as we arrived. The rooms were run down and in need of many repairs. The hotel as a whole […] needs a huge remodel. The view was great but for the price per night not worth it for us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Don't ever accept room 305, if you should tell a bald-headed receptionist that you are coming alone! The room was basically without daylight, without an additional safety bolt at the door, and equipped with an antiquated wooden in-room safe, which even an amateur like me could have easily managed to open, if necessary. Good that I was on the road during […] most of my stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location across the beach but very updated, small room and only one elevator.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very old hotel"
I told what I thought about this hotel. I did not swear or demean anybody. But I guess all you want is glowing reports even though they may not be true. This hotel was built in 1964(I was a JR. in high school then). It was modern in 1964. In 2014 this hotel is way out of date. The elevator is very very small. The hotel is right across the street(20ft.)from […] Waikiki beach. It is centrally located in the middle of the "Waikiki Strip". It has nor pool or restaurant. That is my chief complain. All I asked was a pool and restaurant. No I would not stay there again. The staff was very nice. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who liked modern conveniences. I asked the travel agency "does it have a pool and restaurant"?? They did not give me a straight answer. The door to the hotel is very hard to find. It is about 8-10 ft. wide and it located in between some large hotels and stores. So if you think you are getting a glowing report about how wonderful this hotel is, you are talking to the wrong person. I TELL THE TRUTH. If you want lies, ask someone else. The hotel is OK for what it is----a hotel built in 1964. I am not going to insult anyone. I will say the cost was reasonable. But then again it was built in 1964. When I go on vacation I want simplicity. No pool and restaurant was important to ME. Anyway this is my report. Keep it; reject it; IT IS THE TRUTH, AS I SEE IT. The End. Peter v.W.

Outdated and expensive. No amenities in the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good but not super"
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were outdated and not nearly as "charming" as they appear in the photos. Waikiki beach is right out the front door, but the strip there is filled with homeless people, is dirty, and smells awful. Any hotel on that strip would have the same issues, just wanted to point it out because I was surprised […] about it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Disappointing =("
It was hard finding the hotel because it was between 2 stores, we was getting frustrated until we found it, and the parking we had to park at another hotel, and walk around to the hotel entrance.. It was raining and we got soaked because there were no cover when you are walking to the hotel, its not like the other Astons that we stayed at, we didn't […] even have a view, our view was a wall.. It was very disappointing that we had to look at a wall sitting on our balcony... They need to update those rooms, also the elevator we had to wait because it was very small and couldn't fit in it with a lot of people.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location, however room did not look at all like pictures in Hotels.com...they were really small and cramped, no room for any toiletries in bathroom and hardly any room for personal belongings inside room itself. However, great staff and excellent proximity to beach and waikiki shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst ever hotel and service!!"
This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed at in terms of basic hygiene and service! It seemed as if a utility room had been converted to a guest bedroom. We had a huge wooden trash labeled box right outside our room along with 2 plastic open trash cans!! When we called the front desk, the person came up to our room and could not understand why we […] did not want all these trash cans/containers outside our room!!!! At 7 in the morning, the housekeeping staff and other staff (not sure who all) were right outside our room yelling and talking and laughing and we could hear it all. By 7:30 it seemed they had LOUD vacuums etc going on. Finally, at 7:45 or so I went out and requested them to talk a little softly since we had checked in at midnight and were exhausted (with time change etc. having traveled from New Zealand). It slowed for a few minutes and then was back LOUD! We later realized the room right next to ours was the laundry room and had washers dryers etc running. The room itself was TINY and not dusted or cleaned properly. You could run your fingers in the bathroom on the sink etc and get dust! We mentioned that as well but no impact whatsoever! Would not stay here even if offered to do so for free! Seriously, you can find multiple other options for the same amount- DO NOT STAY HERE!!! The front lobby (if you can call it that) was filthy as well and I can go on and on- but you get the picture. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, great location"
Hotel is in a great location with a friendly, helpful staff. It was one of the cheapest hotels in Waikiki. It is a little outdated but you don't go to Hawaii for the hotel room. If you are looking for a clean, reasonably priced hotel with all your basic needs, this is a great option.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Older Hotel But Great Location and Excellent Staff"
We are a young couple, 23years of age, and we love to travel. I'm the planner, so about a year ago, I was trying to look for the best deals. Basically, for June, we got it. When we arrived, it was a little shocking because our room was very small. My fiance and I both were uncomfortable. So, he went down to the front desk and they said they were overbooked […] but would call us if any open rooms became available. Within an hour, Kamaki, front desk manager, called us and told us he had two rooms open on the top floor. We were ecstatic. We upgraded to a bigger room on the top floor. And the staff's service only got better. Every morning, we had our room, cleaned, stocked, and mopped. The location is awesome. The hotel is OLDER than most. The elevator is very small and slow. But for the location and staff, I would rate this a 5. Only for the hotel itself I rate it a 3. Kamaki, and the rest of the staff were absolutely a delight to see and speak with. I will definitely be back to this hotel because of the staff and cleanliness. Thank you Kamaki for your attentive and amazing service!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location but No Parking"
Pro: affordable, beach front location, nice employees. Con: hard to find the main entrance of the hotel, no place for family or friends to park, >$20 / day for parking! There is a giant tree in front of the hotel blocking the ocean view, therefore I paid for ocean view but got only partial view :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
