"great place to stay - good value"
great view of Waikiki, great location - we ran the window air conditioner nonstop and it kept the room very cool, and helped drown out the nighttime traffic noise - the balcony was great - rooms are small but that's what's to be expected at a small old beach hotel - they loan out beach towels which is great - overall great value for the price to be […] beachfront in Waikiki! we would definitely stay there again.

"Wakiki circle review"
Hotel is conveniently close to beach. Excellent location to walk to many stores and shops. Hotel room did not meet my expectations. No iron or ironing board. No microwave. No exaust fan or window in bathroom. The shower and toilet is in two separate rooms with one shared door that has to close to one room or the other. They didn't provide enough wash […] cloths. There was no full length mirror in hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Being close to the beach"
Location is perfect, literally across the street from one of the best beaches: no stones or corals on bottom, clear water, white sandy beach. A lot of eateries around, from upscale buffets to small restaurants or crepe points. The only one problem we had - McDonald's construction nearby with noise, but it seems to be finished soon. Rooms with ocean […] view are better, because city view on first 4 floors is actually "parking view" of the neighbor hotel parking lot. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable for 2-3 people. DVD rental (included in resort fee) is close to nothing because of limited choice, but you are there not fir DVD watching; it's a lot to do on Hawaii. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was great, the location is on the money and it was kid friendly. Improvement suggestions( 1) a hotel shuttle service would be a benefit to the hotel and its guest ( 2) a cut the line policy for guest of the hotel to have breakfast at Egg & Things because the lines are too long. (2) More games and video optionsfrom the kiosk for kids especially g […] irls. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing that we would have love to have is more space in the room, they are too small for 4 people. It was uncomfortable to move around. The showers head aimed out side because is to tight . Over all fantastic. Keep up the good work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel, great location"
Small wedge shape room due to circular hotel structure. Ok for a few nights or budget traveler. Great location. Accross the street from Waikiki/Kuhio park. WiFi and DVD rentals included in $15 resort fee. Room AC unit but adequate. Family of four with 2 kids ages 10 and 8.Genuine Expedia guest review
We love staying at the Aston Circle - not terribly expensive considering its location. Close to everything you need. Staff is always always friendly & helpful. Need to remember that the hotel is round so the rooms are somewhat pie shaped. No tubs - standup shower only and a little on the small side. My husband is 6'3" & it's a little tight for him but […] manageable. This is not a "resort" so don't expect frills or planned activities. May not be what families are looking for but is perfect for couples or maybe with one child. Flatscreen tv, small frig, safe, coffee maker, desk, drawers & shelves for storage. International Marketplace about 3 blocks away & an FYI- there's a US post office there that's even open on Sunday. Came in handy for shipping home flat rate boxes with all the bargains from the Swap Meet at Aloha Stadium!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, great location"
Our family wasn't concerned about how the hotel looked because we weren't planning on spending much time in the hotel room. The hotel doesn't look like much, but the location is great. We were close to some great shops, great restaurants, the Honolulu Zoo, and the beach was right across the street. We were happy with the room because it was clean, the […] A/C worked, and the location was great. The staff was very accommodating. They continued to watch our luggage for us for 7 hours even after we had checked out. The wi-fi worked great. The only downfall for us was the shower as the water pressure was really low, but I find that's really common in hotels these days. It's just not conducive when you're covered in sand from the beach, so definitely use the showers available right across the street on the beach to get rid of the majority of the sand. Would have been great if the room had a microwave too. Other than that, we enjoyed it, loved how clean it was, and would stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel summer experience"
Great Hotel experience overall. You get your money's worth. Room and shower a bit small, also hotel has no lobby but the location compensates for everything thats a miss. Be ready to pay for resort fee of $15 per/ day and additional $15 if u have a car. Parking lot only accomodates 12-15 cars but it has an agreement with a nearby hotel where guests […] may try finding a car space. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Fascinating view of the ocean from the oceanfront room balcony. Small room. Poor service. Overall, value for money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just what we needed"
We booked two rooms for a one night stay, our last night in Hawaii. You cannot beat the location. It is central to the major shopping and restaurant area and the beach is directly across the street. It seemed like we were always in the midst of activity. The reception/check-in area is outdoors. It reminded me of a parking garage but the employees were […] very gracious and helpful. The rooms were very small, but for our purposes, it was satisfactory. The room was clean. I have to admit that the in-wall AC unit cooled our room much faster than most major hotels with central air and I loved that aspect of it. The balcony view, if you face the ocean, is spectacular. If you don't, you get to look at buildings during your stay. For our purposes --- an inexpensive, one-night, stay, central to a major shopping and restaurant area, and a stone's throw away from the beach --- we couldn't beat the price of this place.

Dated rooms but who cares with an ocean front view!! Loud McDonalds construction next door and no ice available on each floor were our only concerns.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Repeating stays is still awesome!"
Can't beat the front ocean view. 13th floor was awesome. Cool breezes and the park across the street. Just can't get any better! Thanks, TonyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not enough room for 4"
I was surprised when I got there to see how small the hotel actually was. The lobby is actually outside. The rooms are not equipped for a family. Especially a family of four. We were cramped in there. The maid service was incredible though. The rooms were cleaned daily ..spotless. The view was great, we upgraded to oceanfront. Although if there would've […] been a bigger room when we asked we would've taken it. When I booked I wasn't really concerned about the hotel because I wanted us to get out. After being there I wish I would've went to a hotel that had activities in the hotel on the water and a pool. Overall we had a great view, but I wouldn't stay there with my family again.

"Great hotel for beach view!"
Although this hotel is older you cannot beat the location. I would recommend spending that little bit extra and getting the ocean front room. I think this hotel has the best view of any hotel in Waikiki beach especially for the price. It does not have a pool but you are literally across the road from the beach so you don't need it and they give you […] free beach towels with none of this checking out how many beach towels you are taking and then returning. We would definitely stay here again just for that ocean front room view. Yes it's noisy and the room could do with a face lift but if you want a room with an amazing view and you don't want to break the bank then this place is amazing.

"dispointed to stay"
The location of the hotel is very nice, right next to the beach. We sayed in a beach front room on the 9th floor, it is a picure perfect view of the beach. But the room was very noice due to the poor insolation and the window air cordination system. The hotel dose not even have a lobby, as well as no other ficilities which are available in most the […] hotels, such as the pool, and gym, icemaker.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Best location! Great staff. Rooms are unique because building is round. I have stayed here before and would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location with clean and modern rooms!"
We arrived at the hotel earlier than the posted check-in time. The staff did not hassle us about being early and the room was ready for us, with no extra fees. Our room had a partial ocean/beach view that was beautiful. The room was not anything spectacular but it had all the necessities. Being in Hawaii, I planned on staying in the room as short as […] possible. The bathroom was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable, we had a mini-fridge and a safe was provided. The hotel had free Wi-fi and free movie rentals which is nice; however, I did not use either. Our room did not have an iron, but one was brought to our room immediately by the staff when I asked for one from the front desk. You can't beat the location of the hotel! Right across the street from Waikiki beach with plenty of restaurants and ABC stores near by. The rooms are nice and the staff was very accommodating. They provide guests with complementary beach towels which really comes in handy! The only down side of the hotel is that it does not have a pool, but the Ocean is right across the street.

"Perfect for one night"
My parents stayed there 1 night while waiting for our house rental to become available. It was your typical Waikiki experience - loud noise from the street and small rooms. It was fine for the one night they spent there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The room was great in all respects except for..."
We liked the room in all ways, as the bathroom was nicely updated, and the internet service worked well and reliably. The beds were comfortable, and the view and balcony were great. However, the one thing that kills it as a recommendation: the area was way too noisy. We heard major gardening noises as early as 6am one day. Totally unacceptable, as […] there was no way to get any sleep in the morning. In fact, the gardening work was really the only greatly unacceptable noise, as most traffic and oceans noises were tolerable. I don't know if you can help fix this problem. But it was horribly unfortunate.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great central location"
easy to walk to most places in waikiki. I rented a surfboard for my full 5-day trip and they had free storage for me to use. right across from the beach. I had a car and there was always a spot for me in the garage (not always the case at waikiki hotels). room was small, as others mentioned, but it had everything i needed and the bathroom was fully […] equipped and there was plenty of closet space and a great normal-sized terrace.

"Basic beachside hotel"
We enjoyed being right across from the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. The lack of a lobby and the congestion of the people waiting to get into the restaurant is a downside. We felt our room was our only sanctuary, as compared to other hotels where we could ask friends to meet us in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"small hotel, right on the beach"
Not bad if you just want a place to sleep that's close to everything. There is no real lobby here, no stores, just a check in window. Employees were nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Air conditioner was rusty. Additional mandatory charges at check in. $15 a day parking fee, we did use, and automatic amenities charges of $15 a day for things we did not use. We were not told of these charges ahead of time so it was upsetting to be told upon arrival. Great service with friendly informative staff. Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A so-so place to stay. Small room but nice and clean. Location is great and easy for shopping and basking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location Tiny Rooms"
The hotel is in a great location. The rooms are a little small though, including the shower. It was a little tough navigating our luggage around the room and they only offered double beds which I missed while making the reservation. Parking is very limited. The first few days we had to look around at other parking garages on other hotels (some of which […] were full too). Internet is available for free and they offer free movies that you can rent at the lobby. The staff were nice and friendly. They offered to move us several floors up since they placed us on the 2nd floor during our first night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Possibly the best in waikiki"
This little hotel is awesome. Despite looking like it's stuck in the 60's this place has everything you need. Only 14 floors and 2 elevators, we rarely had to wait to go up or down. The location cannot be beat. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Unless you really need a fancy lobby this is the place to stay. Get one of the 3 ocean facing rooms […] on any floor for a very reasonable amout, it will be worth it. The only bad thing was how noisy the street and beach are. If you are a deep sleeper then it will be no problem, we used ear plugs and got a great night's sleep. A very popular restaurant called eggs and things is right between the hotel and the side walk, long lines but moves fairly quickly. We did not rent a car so I don't know how the parking is, there seems to be a parking garage beneath the hotel. We used tours and public transportation. We definately will consider going back to this place the next time we stay in waikiki. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just the basics-just what you need"
if you dont need anything fancy- this is the place. The rooms were simple and pleasant for sleeping- we were out on tours or the beach everyday- so didnt need a huge room. If you choose this hotel, dont buy into the "pay extra" for an ocean view". its a circular building, so all the rooms had excellent views. we stayed in a room with "city" view, but […] could still see the beach. Location was great- walking distance from everything. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"March in Waikiki"
The location of the hotel is directly across the street from a safe and clean beach. There are many good restaurants within easy walk of the hotel. The room we had was good size and comfortable. The room service was suburb. I do not think that there is any extra value in getting a room with a view which is an additional charge. The resort fee is reasonable […] but could be included in the cost of the room (at a lower rate). We enjoyed our stay (9 days) even when it rained. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best place to stay in Waikiki"
We enjoyed every minute of the stay there. Started off by calling Charleys taxi service from the luggage pickup (used the iphone app) and bypassed the 50 people standing line waiting for a taxi. It took about 20 minutes to get to the hotel, 10 minute checkin and then boom right there on the beautiful balcony overlooking the beach. Ashton circle has […] beach towels to use whcih we took advantage of for our twice daily visits to the beach. It was a great time and it was driven by the place we stayed at, Thanks Ashton Cirlce.

"On a budget? This will work....."
We stayed there Nov. 29th-Dec 5th. When we drove up, I thought, "Oh great, the smallest, oldest hotel on the block!" And when we entered the round hallways with linoleum, I was really worried. But really, if you're on a budget, this wasn't bad. Good points; very clean room, good maid service, right across the street from Waikiki Beach and close to many […] stores and restaurants. Not so good; very small rooms, the beds seemed very short (and we're not tall) and they only have doubles. We read the reviews and knew to get a room above the 6th floor and away from the dumpsters, and we're glad we did because it would of been very noisy. FYI;finding the entrance the 1st couple of times can be tricky as it's a little hidden. Look for the "Eggs and Things" restaurant. It's in the same driveway! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a very pleasant stay and enjoyed it all. We did not rent a car, but used the Bus, which stopped just one block up from the hotel. All other shuttles stopped right across the street from the hotel so the location was perfect. We will be back !!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outdated, 'Resort Fee' an absolute joke"
Hotel appears stuck in the '60s, '70s and could use updating. They charge a 'Resort Fee,' which is ridiculous. Had no water our last day of stay - and they wanted to charge an additional ridiculously large fee to stay over longer so we could shower once the water came back on. Had to pay a fee to use the internet for anything other than boarding passes […] - and that's in addition to the 'Resort Fee' that gets you absolutely nothing. A joke. Beds weren't comfortable at all. Bathroom made you feel like you should wear shoes in the shower. Spend a few more dollars and stay somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
