    Anbushed in the lobby

    Location is good.

    The actual room we are staying in is smallish and dated, but the location is pretty decent - south end of Waikiki nearer to Diamond Head. Probably rates as 4 stars, but I have to demote it because of the aggressive timeshare people patrolling their lobby to intercept guests. After a long 13+ hours of travel, we arrived exhausted to be greeted by a young lady literally right off the elevator opening onto the lobby floor. She promised to help us get settled and seemed to be someone with the hotel. In fact, she works for Diamond Resorts, a company trying to re-brand timeshare scams into modern points-based vacation packages. What we thought was the hotel helping us get checked in and settled turned into a sales pitch about discounts on various tours, etc. if we just attended a presentation the next morning. The presentation was pitched as 2 hours, and no obligation, etc. We were pretty dazed from the travel and they were talking about saving hundreds of $ for a short presentation, so we agreed to this. You can (and should) google Diamond Resorts and educate yourself about them, and that's another story. We didn't buy anything, but they used super aggressive sales tactics and eventually basically insulted us for not agreeing to play ball and part with several thousand dollars on the spot. Here's the rub - as I was (later) researching Diamond Resorts, some of the cautionary tales about them I read were from people ambushed at other Aston properties - Maui, etc. So, I canned my plan to complain to the manager here, because clearly they condone, if not support, the Diamond Resorts people. Not sure, they might even be owned by the same private equity firm (Apollo). So, I recommend avoiding all Aston properties, as they allow their guests to be harassed and ambushed by overly aggressive scam artists.

    Great location and view, but the hotel is dated!

    The view and location. This was its only redeeming quality! It’s priced right!

    The bathrooms were small and so old and in need of major renovation! The beds were hard and the pillows inadequate!

    Good Value and Location

    My room was quite and clean 2 Starbucks were close and open early LuLu's was right next door Good Beach Access Tiki's is a good bar and restaurant located on the property

    The in room desk was small. I was on a business trip and could of used a little more space to spread out.

    Nice Location, pleasant stay

    It’s situated very well, at the end of the Wikiki strip. Not over the top, but serviceable. Maybe a bit pricy, but you pay for the location.

    Not clean 100% - maybe about 89%?

    When we arrived the room air conditioner did not work so they upgraded our room to a king with ocean view on the 22nd floor. Beautiful sunsets

    The hotel is conveniently located right across the Waikiki beach, with a lot of great restaurants and boutique shops near by. There are also big shopping centers in the neighborhood.

    Other than location, Aston doesn't have much to offer. We were really disappointed at the service as front desk staffs are not so friendly and helpful. I booked a Partial Ocean View room with king size bed, but they gave us a standard room with 2 double size bed. Mandatory unwanted additional service package deals are also added with a charge. The way how the hotel operated made us feel like Aston is "Cheap".

    Poorly run 2 Star hotel, not worth the price and f

    Good location. yeah, that's it. and there's tons of other hotels on the beach. I would elsewhere other than Aston brand seeing how they're managed.

    Staff was not organized and not caring. They gave key to our room to other guests. I don't know if it's good or bad we were in the room at the time. Assuming they only did it once. A hotel employee even tried to let people in. Hint - new, empty rooms don't have the Do Not Disturb sign hanging on the door. They called us twice after 11PM trying to sort out their mistake in booking.. I complained to staff, no reaction. When i was checking out, they didn't ask how my stay was, otherwise i would've complained again. BTW, there were 4 workers just standing there when i checked out, so it's not like they were rushed. Small gym, small pool, big resort fee. Still have to pay $30/night for parking. Make sure you add $60+/day to your expected price your paying. Two sets of keys stopped working at the same time. they claim they both got demagnitized. 2 sets of keys kept in separate places at the exact same time? they screwed up. They didn't clean the room every day, even when empty from 6am-12. Bathroom stank of mildew. Safe didn't close reliably. Hair dryer only worked on 2 of 3 settings. We didn't get our welcome bag of sunscreen until second day of our stay, again pointing out they screwed up in the system. Refrigerator froze all liquids inside, not just in the icebox. No way to adjust it. Lots of drunk biker gang guys at the pool bar at night. They staggered into our private party. They have a weird elevator system where you have to press your room key and punch in the floor outside the elevator. there's no buttons inside. and you can't go from the rooms to the ground level. you have to stop at the 3rd floor in either direction. The first day i was confused and i asked the staff how to get to the ground floor, he told me i had to valet. i said i just want to get to the parking area and he just kept telling me i have to valet and pointed to the lobby. Elevators were broken every night.
