"Okay for the price"
We arrived by car to find there was a twenty-dollar charge per night to park. Okay, I can live with that. At check in we discovered they had sold out, including our room. But, the woman simply upgraded us to a very nice room on the 7th floor with a great view. As is common in Oahu the traffic noise, even on the seventh floor was a bit overpowering. […] Still the view was great and the room was plenty comfortable. It was nice to have a coffee maker in the room but we soon discovered that the first pack of coffee was free and every little coffee filled-filter after that one cost a buck. The room does come with breakfast, but breakfast is really just coffee and a couple of pieces of not so good toast. All in all, for the price I would stay at this place again. The pool is nice, the room is fine and it's just a couple of block to the beach, crowded as it is. Waikiki is jammed with traffic and people. It's literally wall to wall crowded. I don't think I'll ever return. I've been to many more beautiful places in the world and for a lot less money, offering a lot more tranquility. If you like crowds, noise and expensive hamburgers, and I do mean expensive, you'll love it here. Otherwise, go to Thailand. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was ok for one night. This hotel caters primarily to Asian travelers. I paid for an upgraded room and was placed on the 9th floor. The draperies were tired and had been sewn back together after being ripped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice beach hotel with several facility problems"
It's a surprise to find out that the coffee bags are only free for the first day in the room. Other days? You should pay for them. What's more, for some reasons, our room's air conditioner was leaking water whenever we turned on it. Can you image every day we woke up and saw water everywhere on the floor? And we were luck that we put all the luggage […] near the balcony so that they were not soaked. And another funny thing, the breakfast in the hotel only offer 4 pieces of bread per person.......I really don't understand why they are so mean. The hotel has its advantages I need to mention, the location is pretty good though.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, poor mannered staff."
We found a pretty good rate for the room. Like most hotels in Waikiki, there's a steep valet fee of $20. The complimentary breakfast is a joke: toast, canned fruits, and sugary juice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean room, friendly staff, valet parking is mandatory, air conditioning is pretty much set at hotel temperature, bar open till 4 a.m., pool open till 9 p.m., nice area for shopping, couple blocks from beach and mall. Affordable compared to other hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonable place to stay"
Hotel is close to a lot of action, beach, restaurant, shopping mall within walking distance, that's a plus. The hotel room had wooden floor which I was not a fan of. I did however get used to it after sometine. The hotel however did fulfil a request for a king sized bed which is a plus. Our room also happened to be on the 2nd to highest floor which […] allowed for a good view....though not much given the location of the hotel. They offered free continental breakfasts, though this was not much including coffee, croissants, and toast, juice. It was limited but saved us quite some money. Hotel staff were friendly and receptive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Aston Waikiki is looking a little tired. Rooms were a bit shabby, however, the carpeting appeared to be new. Our air conditioning did not work for our first two nights there. Finally repaired on the third day. Good place to stay with children or teenagers as the beach is right there, movies and games are free, Starbucks and Wolfgang Puck Express […] on premises as well as several other stores.

Good location very close to Waikiki Beach and a lot of stores just around the corner. Hotel staff was all very sweet and answered all of my questions no matter what, and did everything they could to make me feel welcome! My room was clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay, and would definitely come back!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable, nice location, clean"
Pretty good for the price you payGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"bathrooms scream for upgrade!!"
it was ok, not too bad, 2 stars I would say. Bathroom was very old stuffed. Beds were fine. Breakfasts are "just better then nothing" type. Pool is beautiful. Workers are good. I will stay in another hotel next time I'll travel there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Been a week since I checked out and credt card still does not have the deposit cleared.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty Good for Waikiki"
This hotel is fairly strict about hosting visitors in your room and monitoring the number of guests. We did not get hassled about the local friend who accompanied us to our room when we changed clothes for dinner, but there was a discomfort about it for us based on their rigorous policy. The rooms and lobby are very clean and feature new furnishings. […] As the hotel is on a main roadway in Waikiki, the ambulance and fire truck sirens were a frequent interruption well into the wee morning hours. But this is an unavoidable consequence for many of the hotels along Ala Wai avenue. Rental car drivers, also take note of the $20/day, valet-only parking fee. Again, this is a common surcharge most anywhere we saw in Waikiki. These tidbits aside, we found a deal on Expedia for this hotel that put the room plus parking fee at about $128/night total. Considering the alternatives, we were satisfied with our stay at Waikiki Sand Villa. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"it is near the Waikiki beach."
I felt the hotel staffs a good service and would recommend it to my friends`Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great proximity to the Waikiki beach area!"
If you are looking for an okay place to simply crash at night, this place is great. It is really a 2.5 star place. It is just a few blocks from the waikiki beach and that is it's biggest advantage. If you are looking for a good staying experience, this is not for you. But given the proximity to the beach, this place serves up well enough since the other […] hotels in the area get really expensive in the peak season and on the weekends. Nothing super bad or super good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"consistently better than expected for its price"
i go to honolulu twice a year, and stay here each time. i find that for its price, its amenities and comfort are excellent. clean rooms, good size, balconies, access to the hotel pool and exercise room, helpful staff. it doesn't look like a 5 star property with spacious lobbies, but i can definitely live without. for those with evening flights out, […] they have a "hospitality room" where you can shower prior to leaving. it's a very helpful service. their free breakfast is okay to skip -- it consists of a cup of pineapples and up to 4 slices of toast. there is free, reliable wifi throughout the rooms and the property. i'm looking forward to staying here again during my next trip.

"Central in Waikiki"
On the whole very good experience, we were kept awake by people talking in other rooms near by , so the sound proofing needs improving on our floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good, cheap, bare-minimum hotel."
Overall, the hotel is great for its value. Be advised the rooms and bathrooms have not been updated in a while, if at all. The rooms are like staying in a very small studio apartment. If you are looking for a cheap hotel with just a bathroom and a bed and nothing fancy, you should consider the Waikiki Sand Villa.Genuine Expedia guest review
very satisfactory very convienent very friendly good valuwGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The main desk staff is really unfriendly, and worst are the staff in charge of breakfast!!!! All of them looks you like an enemy. We never had an experience like this in a hotel in no place in the world, and we visit more than 40 countries, and hundreds of hotels!!! The location is good. We stayed 2 weeks ago in a hotel 2 blocks from this one (Ohana […] West) and was cheaper, best location, excelent staff, clean, modern, free tickets to ride the pink line (bus). We took Waikiki Sand Villa becouse Ohana had no place, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was very uncomfortable. I expected a lot more than toast for breakfast. get a waffle machine or something.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap stay in Waikiki"
No real breakfast to speak of. Toast, pineapple & coffee. Rooms were okay for the price, but nothing to make it feel like a holiday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the price point"
Why pay $409 down the street when you can pay $109 for a clean, comfortable room at the sand villa. The salt pool and hot tub are one of the best pools in Waikiki. The Sand bar has great food, excellent prices (try the breakfast skillet) Awesome! Valet is prompt and works all night. The staff is friendly and you meet great people at the sand bar...which […] is a locals favorite until 3:30am. Chris Hawaii Kai Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sand Villa Hotel Stay"
very nice location o Ala Wai Ave. Very nice staff. Bar and grill open till 4 AM. Close to all Wakiki hot spots. Ala Wai golf course and canal outriggers are your view. Wakiki beach is a 5 minute walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only for smoking room ill return"
Bed was hard pillows flat... The only reason I would come back is that they have smoking rooms I don't have to go out on the side walk to smoke.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Will look elsewhere next time."
Had fun in the area, but was happy to be checking out when we did. Spent 3 nights in all, thought about relocating, but stuck it out. The morning free toast & caned pineapple was a bit of a joke. Rooms were clean, but extremely small. Staff was pleasant, but not very engaging.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient, nice home away from home"
Hotel and rooms are a little old and outdated, but you have to look at it in context, because 95% of the buildings in Honolulu are older. The hotel is clean, and the views from the room balcony are spectacular. Nice little pool and hot tub. Food at the restaurant in the hotel is good. It was really convenient that you could rent beach towels from the […] hotel for free. This hotel is 3 blocks from Waikiki so it is really convenient to walk down to the shops and catch the evening luau shows on the beach, but it comes with a price because at night when you are trying to sleep it is very noisy, lots of sirens at night. Free breakfast in the morning was a little disappointing because it is toast and canned pineapple everyday but hey, it gets you by. Valet parking for $20 a day which you pay when you check out, but if you've ever tried to park in downtown Honolulu, you come to appreciate this too. Nice home away from home, would stay here again.

"Good Value for the price"
Fair value for the price. The room was basic, but who needs to be in the hotel all day long when you are in Hawaii.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tired hotel in need a makeover."
This hotel is tired and in need of a makeover. The furnishings of the room have seen better days. The lighting is not good. The bedside lamps are so high on the wall that it is impossible to reach them without getting out of bed to do so. The pillows are flat, and even two of them did not provide enough support to comfortably lean on them in order to […] read in bed. The bathroom sink is way too low for a person of average height. It was clean, and the staff was pleasant, but it really does need sprucing up. The television did not work. I called for service, which was quickly provided. It seems the cable box was broken, so the guy connected the TV directly to the wall hookup, meaning that I did not have access to movies. In the breakfast area, a roll of paper towels was the only thing that passed for napkins: the guests had to tear off a bit of paper towel to serve as a napkin. Not exactly professional service.

"not clean it could be better"
not a good one hotel was not clean and service was badGenuine Expedia guest review
must have microwave oven and the free breakfast not a favorite must have an upgrade on the free breakfast but overall nice location also parking too expensiveGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No frills. If not sort of close to beach area and Waikiki, room rates would be much less. Breakfast for all was toast and pineapple. No kids channels on TV. Bring shower soap etc...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price, if you don't use the room much"
The hotel is a little run down. The couch in the room was filthy... Very stained. The beds were very firm and the pillows flat. The room had a lot of space though and the wet bar with a microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker and extra sink, equipped with coffee cups and a sponge and dish soap to was them was nice. There was a grocery store literally in […] the same block, so I saved money on having breakfast and snacks in the room. The breakfast is toast (up to 4 pieces) with butter and jam, pineapple juicd, pineapple and coffe and tee. Not very filling, but the store was my choice and there were plenty of affordable breakfast options in the area (under$10). Overall a good place, could use a deep cleaning though.

"Great Basic Hotel stay..."
Nice hotel room, if you are looking for a basic place to stay while staying in a very central location near the beach. Most people who would travel to Hawaii usually would like to be out and about and the basic is really all you need to come back to sleep and get up and head out to the beach or someplace scenic. In that respect, it is recommended for […] a nice stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Bad hotel no matter what. Good location but 2 or 3 blocks away from waikiki very dark and awful and scary. Breakfast is terrible!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed in room across street from hotel, but managed by Sands Villa. It was a depressing room. The a/c unit was so loud it kept waking us up. And the free breakfast was toast, a stale cresent roll and canned pineapple. Would not stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the price."
The hotel was alright for the price. Small but inexpensive. Just off the main strip of Waikiki so you could walk to anything you wanted but also get away from it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A "urban" stay at Waikiki"
I enjoyed my stay at Waikiki Sand Villa. If you enjoy the urban atmosphere and want a "locals" view of Waikiki, then this is the place. The hotel is simple, no fancy wall paper or marble bathrooms. Easy walk to the beach, restaurants and bars. Easy access to the transportation system "The Bus". Great value for a Waikiki Hotel. Breakfast is simple but […] was enough to hold me till lunch.

"Never again at this hotel."
The only decent part of my stay at this property was in the bar...very good food and service. The hotel rooms were dirty, the curtains were falling off the rods, the lampshades were very stained, the headboard of my bed was splattered with ??? They advertise wireless internet, but it took us 4 days to be able to get online. Never again here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great customer service. Breakfast is not good at all, It is just toast jelly and butter, Coffee and pineapple juice. Do not expect eggs or pancakes or anything else. Do not expect breakfast, Because it's not really breakfast it is just toast, oh just two pieces of toast. It is like jail food lol.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good for the price."
The staff were generally very friendly but the service was not exceptionally good. They did not adequately explain before i went into the room that the power for the TV and most of the lights would only go on if my key card was put in and LEFT in a slot inside the room. Also, the wifi only worked well on the 2 lower floors, Not in my room on the 4th. Price […] is good but don't expect free coffee packets every day. You only get 1 free one for your coffee maker, that on the first day. The first picture below is the view from my balcony. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
