If you a looking for a clean room and a great price right across from the beach, Look no further! Comfy bed, quick elevator and friendly staff. Loved that I could sit on the balcony and look right at the beach, not that many have front views up and down the street strip

Definitely not the fanciest place in Waikiki but the location is great if you want to spend time on the beach without paying through the nose. The hotel is dated and is in desperate need of renovation but having said that the rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff are efficient, helpful and friendly. A quick walk across Kalakaua...

$125 per night. Right across from the beach - board rentals - bars -shops. The room was clean as a whistle. The place could use a little tlc - scuffs and dings, but I so enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back to this same hotel, even with all the choices.

I recently returned from Hawai'i where I spent 6 nights at the Aston Beachside Hotel. I will agree with others about the hotel being dated and lacking amenities. You'll find no continental breakfast, hotel gym, or any other fancy stuff here. This hotel offers you a basic room (maybe you get more if you upgrade), friendly staff (Lave is awesome),... More

This place is a pit. We were placed in an "interior" room, which was a musty and dank closet with no window. When we requested to move we were placed in another damp, dirty and cramped room that smelled like mildew. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. My wife and I stayed out anywhere we could as late as... More

My wife had read the reviews on here and was having second thoughts about our booking, but we should not have been worried. Whilst the room was small, it was clean and the cleaning staff attended to it everyday, the air conditioner worked well and we had a new digital TV. The staff were all friendly and helpful, with Lava... More

I found this deal and when I read the reviews I was having second thoughts because there were negative comments but I was very surprised and glad I took a chance with this hotel. The location was perfect for walking around and we didn't need to rent a car. The staff was very helpful with recommendations on where to eat... More

We stayed at The Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel from Sunday 26th May until Wednesday 4th June 2014 and could not have asked for anything else. When we arrived one of the three rooms were ready and they were more than happy for us to shower and refresh ourselves. The people on the front desk were VERY friendly and helpful. The... More

Staff is friendly and helpful, the location couldn't be better and the views of the beach are amazing. Definetly made our trip with all the sights and so convenient for people to spend time on the beach and close to many great spots to eat/drink. Mahalo

My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights before our wedding at the north shore. Yes, the hotel is old and dated, but the location more than makes up for it. They upgraded us to the top floor where we had amazing views of Waikiki Beach from our balcony. My fiancé and I would sit here for hours each... More
