"Access to conveniences"
Surprised with the additional $15 plus tax a day fee. It was explained as coffee and tea in the room and breakfast. Sometimes, coffee and/or tea bags were not served and the breakfast only served continental unless we upgrade by paying $7 or $12 per person. All these hidden fees are not listed on the website and details of the breakfast service was […] not explained very well. We regret that we didn't have any choice of cancellation at time of checking in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"near great park"
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Nearby Lydgate park was great fun swimming in a enclosed area of the ocean was fun. Location was between Kapaa and Lihue near shopping and beaches and the river. Very beautiful crafts in the lobby that were for sale at reasonable prices.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for everyone in good price"
elevators are too old ,smell bad ,refresh a little hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, servicable hotel near quality swimming area!"
Rooms are good size but a little run down. Microwave ovens, if available, are 10$ a day. I have never heard of that. These were the only negatives. The positives include beautiful grounds surrounding the hotel and excellent staff that work hard to see to your comfort. The best example at the hotel is Leroy. He served us many times during our stay. […] We would find him in the dinning areas every breakfast as well as once at dinner. He also served us at the poolside grill. He always seemed to want to make sure that we were comfortable and happy! The hotel is located next to a safe and very serviceable swimming area. Surrounded by a rock jetty it offered both a wading pool and a very large swimming area, protected from strong surf dangers as well as sea predators. We strongly recommend this option. * Hotel is less than 20 minutes to the airport and a nice central location for sightseeing on the island. * The price is reasonable especially if you take advantage of discounts for booking more than 3 months in advance. * Children have a lot to do in this area.

"Kauai Vacation 2013"
My best friend, my god-daughter, my cousin, and my significant other stayed at the hotel. The room and hotel was okay. It's a good place to just sleep and get ready for your adventures. If you plan on getting your money's worth, this is not the place for you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Centrally located, comfy sleep, work on location"
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Although the Jacuzzi and pool needed some updating, the fact that it is right on the beach was a bonus. The bed was big and comfy. The free movies were a plus. I found and old piece of fruit and a cracker under the bed, though, we stilled tipped the housekeepers because they were so accommodating on our extra requests […] for towels and other essentials we forgot. Expect a $15 a day resort fee;( All the hotels are doing this. If you ask me we pay enough for the room it should be figured in. I live here on the island and stayed at other places. For the price its good. If you don't expect to be hanging by the pool and Jacuzzi area, you will be happy. We liked the room because it was spacious with a couch, desk and fridge with coffee pot. The hotel is a little outdated but for the price, not bad. We stayed two nights and could have spent the whole time in the room(quiet and comfy). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the price and location"
This is a great hotel for the price. It is conveniently located near the airport and Lihue. There is a nearby famlily friendly park with a beach and playground. Overall, this has been a great week here in Kauai !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay near Kapaa"
Great hotel. Rooms are clean and nice. Good view of the ocean, sunrise. Ludgate park near by is awesome. Great waves. Not for surfing but for fun swim. And they have natural pool for kids. Love this hotel. Stayed here more then dozen of times and will sure be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good rest"
Old hotel by the ocean. Good place to stay for a couple of nights. Near airport and in the middle of island road. Good employee services. Open hotel so always humid with the tole of humidity always present.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs an update"
The room was damp and smelled like a wet dog. Staff was kind and helpful, and the free redbox rentals are a nice perk. The Aston Aloha was probably a really nice hotel in the 70s or 80s, but it's visibly falling apart and is dark and sad today. Can't beat the price, but that's for a reason.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Budget hotel with a property fee?"
The hotel is very dated- smells musty, scratchy blankets, small/ old shower. We were also disappointed when we had to park in the satellite lot and there were NO lights. Pitch black and we had to walk up a pot hole filled lots. My husband tripped over the speed bump and almost fell flat on his face...really? Turn on the lights!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
The Continental breakfast service was terrible but I left a comment with the front desk who was going to forward it to the Food & Beverage manager.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall Nice place to stay."
Hotel was in nice shape and close to everything. Kapaa town is just a few minutes away by car and the beach is just steps away. A nice path runs along the beach starting right at the hotels back door. Great early in the morning. Overall a good experience BUT just like alot of other reviews the "amenities fee" caught us by surprise,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old and decrepit TVs"
the hotel is close to Lydgate Park and to the ocean and has a beautiful outwardly the rules were not that good because of the windows would not open and we're not clean the TVs did not work well at all service was excellent front desk people were excellentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were able to have a great stay and tour around the island and it is very conveinient to the entire island.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms need refreshing and remodeling. Heating/cooling system not explained and difficult to use, room was cold and then too warm after attempted adjustment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not recommended for a family"
As soon as we walked into the room and noticed the dirty floor in the bathroom, we started questioning our decision about staying here and questioning our choice of utilizing Expedia in our vacation search. We think that the Aston Aloha Beach Hotel suffers from not having enough staff as the local newspaper was advertising for 4 diiferent positions […] at this Hotel, everything from housekeeping, maintenance, line cooks, and front desk personnell. In our humble opinion, we would not stay here again(Aston Aloha Beach) unless a professional review was done and not more than 6mo old!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location and Staff; needs an overall upgrade"
The building itself is a bit tired, but it is still satisfactory. Cannot beat the central island location. Staff was more-than-great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The shower & it's fixtures need to be replaced. Also the bathroom tile & wall paint needs to be refurbished or replaced. Mahalo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Crumbling walls and mold!"
This hotel is not being maintained. The wall by the sliding door had mold and mildew on it, the carpet was wet and musty and the door with the ocean view would not open. We moved to a different room and the screen door fell off. The glass was so dirty and stained you could not see outside. The food in the restaurant is mediocre at best and overpriced. […] A piece of toast was $3 and some of the time the toaster was broken. The wifi was only available in the lobby, but at least half the time it wasn't working. The washer and dryer were free, but the dryer was broken and finally repaired after 10 days. Many of the guests we talked with had similar bad experiences. The only bright spot was most of the staff were very nice and tried to be helpful. They did agree to compensate us by eliminating extra fees and complimentary breakfast.We would not recommend this hotel to anyone and would never go back there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"perfect location and the cottage parking was great"
the only issue was the hard bed, we fixed that by putting the sofa bed mattress as a pillowtop. room needed aired out as does all closed up rooms in Kauai, overall the cottage was fantastic and pleasant.I would stay there again because of the PERFECT location and the cottage was private.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"old-school" in a good way. Well-maintained property, clean room. Very pleasant staff, seem to care about their hotel and your experience there. Bathroom had sink outside shower/toilet room, which is convenient. Beds were too soft for my taste, but fairly nice quality sheets, and when you are tired it all feels good. Enough channels on TV to choose […] from. the Included breakfast was tiny, but you could "upgrade" if you wish. free parking, no cleaning fee, but a cash-only "resort fee". Beach within walking distance, w/ playground. Especially liked the polynesian-style vaulted ceiling of dining room, and open-air lobby. Grounds are garden-like, with volcanic rocks and waterfalls ad tiki statues. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Keep in mind this is an older hotel, not dirty, but not what most people expect from Aston. That being said, the beds are ok, all of the rooms are dated, think 1970's. But it is clean, and safe. The service is good, the free breakfast coupons are ok, but to upgrade to the buffett is not worth it, and they will charge a daily fee for the free breakfast […] and internet, which is only available in the lobby. (yes you read that right) The hotel is close to Lihue and Kappa, and right next to Lydgate state park with is a great place to BBQ and surf. I wouldn't go back to the Aston, the food and dining service were poor, and expensive, shop around and see what else is out there, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great overall experience."
The hotel was great for the money. I was pleasantly surprised by the large selection of DVD rentals included. The staff was great. The location by the beach was great too. Overall very satisfied.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was always freezing every time we came back to it. Don't bother with the $10 per day newspaper and breakfast. No point queuing for a tiny pastry, two slices of fruit and one cup of coffee. WiFi in the lobby has the smallest range I've ever experienced, iPad that normally never has a problem was really trying to connect.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice. Great placeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for..."
The rooms are basic and clean. The overall hotel needs an update. Their extra $15.00 charge for certain things such as the coffee in the room and continental breakfast/wifi in lobby..not worth it. Stayed at the Kauai Beach Resort next and must say that was worth the extra money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Aston Aloha Beach Hotel Stay"
Very friendly people, great service , beautiful garden property, reasonable prices, awesome swimming pools !! My wife learned how to swim....!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a good economic alternative to the expensive resort hotels on Kauai. The hotel is nice, has quick access to a public beach park, and a pool. It is an older property that has been remodeled and has a nice feel. It is not as flashy as some resorts, but was a good value for us and our friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Budget friendly, good staff but needs updating"
The staff was great, including those in the restaurant;. the dinner we had was very good; breakfast buffet was ok. The pool area, grounds, waterfall- fish pool area and open entry lobby and ocean views are very nice. The two areas needing improvement: The hotel and rooms need remodeling, as it is run down, and the wifi service rarely worked.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect 4 day get-away"
Great price, great location, friendly staff, Great pool and Jacuzzi! Continental breakfast is included - but nothing to write home about.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Get what you pay for."
Great ocean view but windows filthy, need some washing. Staff could use some aloha spirit at the front desk. Resort fee for what?... It is just a hotel with a pool and restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Keep expectations LOW"
$15 resort fee is a farce..you get nothing. Breakfast is a joke. (1 small piece of pineapple and papaya and a cup of coffee - do you call that a breakfast ????).. No internet in the room. You have to go to lobby to access internet. Very dirty carpet in the room. They were very short handed in terms of toiletries, in room coffee etc. But I guess you […] get what you pay for.. Overall, this hotel needs improvement in most of the areas. Great location and outdoor pool/Jacuzzi. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ocean view Kauai"
Our room was a basic hotel room, but we could see the water. It's an older hotel, but we had no complaints on cleanliness . We checked in late due to long flight. Only one clerk on duty. She was having lots of problems with checkins because of new computer system and key cards were't working. Same issue when we checked out the next day.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Not well kept place now though may have been grand"
On arrival, I was charged $15.62 per day besides what I originally paid for room on booking. They said that was resort fee or amenity fee which I thought was not justified. The room window looks like not cleaned for a long time,and wall paintings on many places were faded.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel Rooms were spacious and pretty clean. This hotel is a short walk to the beach which is nice. Hotel has dining area. Misleading extra fee charge non optional for continental breakfast which is a slice of fruit and a small cinnamon roll. Would stay againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not terrible, but not impressive either."
The staff was pleasant. The grounds were the best part. The carpet was old and dirty. The pools were not very clean. The hotel hosted 2 big concerts on Friday and Saturday night with no notice while booking, Is the only concert venue on the island from what the locals told me. Could not sleep due to very loud music and crowd noises from 9-1am. Could […] not attend the concerts as the notice I received, the day of, failed to mention you needed tickets ahead of time. The restaurant and lounge close early otherwise, couldn't get a snack or drink there after 8pm. The continental breakfast is a sliver of fruit and a cinnamon roll the size of my palm, very small. Stayed at Courtyard Marriot at Coconut beach last time for close to the same price and it blew this hotel away. Will not stay at the Aston again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't expect much"
The Aston for all my low rankings is a hotel that is simply past it's prime, appears to have never in the 40 years it's been opened to have had any upgrades and does not seem to care. It is very centrally located, but they charge an additional $10 a day resort fee as if they were timeshares are a resort. This is not a resort, it's a last resort. The […] staff are friendly and I think they give it their best shot for what the owner has left them to work with. But with amenities such as painted over mold in the rooms and long black hairs all over the floors along with bedspread that feel like they haven't been laundered since the 70's you'd be better off somewhere else if you can afford it. I never complained to the staff because these were things that seemed beyond their control however, the owner shoud be fined for numerous code violations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed two nights and our stay was ok. Unfortunately the women working behind the reception are not polite at all. I am really sorry to say that but we had the impression they don't want to help uss neither it was ok that we would like to check in. Kind of "oh no, additional work for us". The rooms are ok, unfortuntately our had no balcony and the […] window was really dirty. The beach is really nice and the location of the hotel is ok. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Watch out for fine print"
To offer WiFi, and, only have access to it in the lobby in front of the desk was disappointing. And, I chose a room with a King-Sized bed with a pull-out Sofa bed. The sofa bed was not even made , nor, did it even have sheets to make. I would figure that the only reason the price of the room was economical was that it was the off season.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel dated and rundown. Breakfast "included" in price of room was 2 small pieces of melon and a dry pastry and coffee. No substitutions. Upon arrival, were informed there was an additional "leisure" fee - for coffee in the room, newspaper and use of pool facilities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beware extra fees"
The people at the front desk let me stand in line for 10 minutes while they took incoming calls. They did not say "I will be with you in a minute" or make any other attempt to acknowledge our presence. In addition they put a $15.00 ";amenity fee" on out stay that was not mentioned anywhere on the hotel.com site. I was not aware of this fee before I […] arrived at the hotel. There is no shuttle to the airport. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Dirty, disgusting, a dump!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Room was pretty clean. Smallissue we had was a slow draining sink. Not a huge deal though. There was an "amenities fee" which covered WiFi but that was ONLY in the lobby and not in the rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were just one night before our three weeks with timeshare places, but the great thing was that I forgot our cell chargers and when we called they were waiting for us. Thank you, Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Now I know why the price was reasonable. The whole place needs a total overhaul. They either don't clean because they think the old decor with hide the dirt or the don't care that the place is dirty. The daily surcharge should be included with the price or the option to use what they are surcharging for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
