This hotel was perfect because of its location. Other than that, I wouldn't say its a top notch hotel or anything. You can't swim at its beach because the water is rough. They do charge a nightly fee which I guess covers breakfast, parking, and movie rentals. But, as far as location, you can't get any better than this. You... More

We stayed at another condo complex last year and weren't impressed, so decided to try Aston Islander this year. No regrets about the choice. Air conditioning is great to have on those humid evenings, the complex is nicely laid out and the staff is friendly. We chose the premium ocean view building and are completely happy with that. A couple... More

This is our kind of place! It took a bit to find it tucked behind the Shopping Centre and what a wonderful staff. My wife upgraded our room a bit to a lovely ocean front. No elevator to get baggage up to the room but I guess help is available. We were very comfortable with our fridge, sink, microwave and... More

The rooms are spacious and in good condition. I choose this hotel for its location, close to the airport and walking distance to shops and restaurants. It was great to be right on the beach. Staff were friendly and welcoming

Wow! looking beyond reception on arrival and i could see the expanse of lawn, room blocks, palm trees & the sea (ocean). We walked from reception to our units (261&262) with Ocean Views. Wow! from the balcony the view was definately ocean views & palm trees, only 30metres to the beach. Good size bathroom, comfy bed/pillows, kitchenette with sink/fridge/microwave/tea/coffee &... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this small resort. The staff at the front desk were so friendly. Dan and Julie at the bar were amazing. The rooms were a nice size and the beds were really comfortable. The location was perfect. It was easy to get anywhere on the island. I would definitely stay there again.

The room was large and clean with a fantastic ocean view. We don't usually spend much time in hotel rooms but this one was hard to leave. Live music by the pool Saturday evening , free dvd movies and free parking took a bit of the sting out of the additional resort fee (a personal pet peeve) Staff was friendly... More

We have chosen midscale Aston hotels with great locations on two visits to Hawaii - once on Maui and once on Kauai. After our stay in Maui we vowed to stay away from Aston hotels on future visits but gave them one more try on Kauai. The beds were substandard and extremely uncomfortable and lumpy in both hotels. The shower... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in the Maui building and what a stay it was.. Location and Hotel grounds- The location of the hotel is very central considering the road network on the island. It is 10 minutes from the hotel and about 15 minutes from Costco/Walmart. This place is also 5 minutes away from many restaurants including regulars... More

Great location. Close to the airport. Has access to the beach. Front desk needed to communicate better but otherwise, the stay was uneventful. Our room wasn't ready on the first day and it took them a while to clean it up and the front desk just kept saying check back in an hour or check back in a couple hours.... More
