Nice hotel

This is a great hotel for busy travelers who don't plan on being in their room a lot. It is very clean and the hotel staff that clean are outstanding. The front desk staff are not as accommodating. They definitely act like they don't want to be there and we were inconveniencing them by being there. Other than that a nice hotel.

An Okay Stay

This is the fourth time that we had stayed at this hotel. We always stayed at this hotel because of the one bedroom full kitchen rooms. Its an okay hotel.

Not what we expected

We stayed for a week in June 2013.  We had a great vacation at Waikiki, but will not recommend this hotel or ever stay here again.  This hotel is definitely family friendly, but our biggest issue is that is was not that clean and front desk staff was generally rude and not helpful.  New carpet was definitely needed. My son walked around barefoot in the room for a few hours, and his foot was black just from that.  The room smelled musty when we immediately walked in.  The smell was there the whole week.  Housekeeping staff was clearly under pressure to get as much done as possible, "cleaning a room" was about a 10 minute process which is shocking considering it is a two bedroom "suite" with a kitchenette. (The bedrooms are super small).  Second, we had issues with the front desk staff from the beginning.  When checking in, they had mixed up our reservations with another party with a similar last name. We were working through it the issue and it wasn't a big deal, however, the front desk person pretended to address it, but then he didn't.  We had to ask him if we upset him because he was so abrasive, and he snapped at us very rudely.  No matter, we moved all our stuff between the rooms ourselves.   Our other interactions with the front desk were mixed.  Sometimes good, but overall they we not welcoming.  We aren't high maintenance, but just want people to understand that if you book a room here, this is a "budget-friendly" option only.  There are no other benefits to staying here.

1Bedroom Deluxe Ocean View

We were situated on the 31st floor and it is a nice view looking at the water.  The hotel is about 3 minutes walk from the beach (2.5 long blocks).  The room was everything as described, clean, newish looking, free wifi... Maid service came everyday to spot clean and make the beds.  There is a $15/day amenity fee charged at checkout and they do have garage parking for $15/day which I paid on checkout.  AC worked great but hardly ever needed it for May weather. There is no restaurant on the premises but we found other places close by to eat and ABC stores were all over to buy groceries for snacks and what nots.  Safeway and Walmart were not too far away to buy other stuff. Overall I enjoyed my stay here. The only way to make it better in my eyes would be to have the same type of room across from the beach and free parking, but that would be another Aston property...  :-)

Walking distance to the beach!

Clean hotel with full kitchen and a living room area and a sofa bed, perfect for small families. The bedroom and living room are divided for extra privacy. Three blocks from the famous Waikiki Beach.

Horrible, Construction, Roaches!!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, roaches!!!
During our five night stay at the Aston Waikiki Sunset hotel, the service we experienced was extremely disappointing. We had several issues with the room, the service and the staff. We even had to wait over two hours for our room to be "finished" so that we could check in. The hotel and room were clean, but there was construction going on a week ahead of schedule. When we booked our room, we were not warned. We were also not warned when we checked in. Had we been informed we would not have stayed here. The noise from the construction was unbearable. It was so loud at times that we could not maintain a conversation. We were not in our room much, but when we were the noise was horrible. When I spoke with the front desk they were semi rude about the situation. The gentleman I spoke with asked me "what do you want me to do about it?" - Really?!?!? We also found a cockroach on our kitchen floor. When I called the desk about it, the gentleman said that they are common in Hawaii and there was nothing they could do. All of that on top of the fact that the walls are so thin, we could hear our "neighbor" cough and talk (normal volume, no yelling). The room was sub-standard for a three star hotel. there was no TV in the "master bedroom" but there was in the second room (2 bedroom suite). The "great location" is only a couple blocks from the beach, but there are on average 10 homeless people in that short distance. I do not mean to be judgmental, but they could do a better job of keeping these people away from the area. I was approached on multiple occasions being asked for money. I will never stay here again and I would recommend that people do not stay here. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep (where you don't mind a horrible bed and lots of noise) then by all means. Other than that, I wouldn't stay here.

A good hotel in a great location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, poor beds
We enjoyed our stay at the Aston Waikiki Sunset. Our only issues were the short twin beds and the noisy air conditioner. The separate bedroom and full kitchen were a bonus.

not a good deal for the money

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet
Watch out for the $10/night "activity" fee. Kinda like airline bagage fees. Sneaky way to get more money out of you. The walk to the beach is two long blocks. God forbid you forgot somethng and have to walk back to the hotel. If you get ocean view - get very high room as you will be looking mostly at ugly roof tops of other buildings.

Wonderful time

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
This was our first trip to Honolulu, and we got an INSANE deal on the hotel room. We had a one-bedroom suite and a two-bedroom suite, both with full kitchens, and living rooms with sofa beds. Our views were spectacular (Diamondhead Mountain from the living room; oceanfront view from bedroom). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Two block walk to Waikiki Beach. Would definitely stay there again if we get the chance.
