I had a few extra days in Waikiki after a business trip and was looking for an inexpensive place near the beach. I did an Express Deal with a travel sight and got this hotel for less than $100 a night. The place is a bit dated and there are hardly any amenities. I had a room with two twins;... More

Great value for the price. Simple but very clean rooms. Location to die for. Directly across from the beach in the heart of the main strip if Waikiki. The staff were absolutely amazing. At all times were friendly and helpful. We stayed during the recent bad weather & not only were the staff well informed but when our flight was... More

We started our trip trying to find the hotel, there are two doors, and if there was a visible sign, we couldn't see it. You have to try to find a place to park, get a valet parking pass, and then go park at another one of their hotels around the corner. The room appeared to be dated but was... More

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
