My husband and I stayed 3 nights (Aug 31- Sep 3) at the Aston Islander while we island hopped. We absolutely loved our room. It was clean and cute and everything we expected. We had a beautiful view of the pool and ocean. We loved the little balcony and enjoyed sitting there in the morning and evening. The beach is... More

We stayed three nights . They were very kind and allowed us to have an early check-in (around 10:30) because the room was ready. The room is comfortable and quiet, but our partial ocean view was of a tree (which didn't spoil our stay). It is located behind a market where you can buy souvenirs and have lunch or dinner....

Aloha and thank you for your review. This morning started with a drizzle and now it's sunny with a slight breeze. We agree with you that the "pool" is small for the number of units we have here and when occupancy is high, it does get crowded. Just a short drive to Lydgate will take you to an area great... More

Great location for easy access to either North or South, close to restaurants and shops. Right off the beach with a swimming pool with BBQ and bar. Units have great space with lanai to chill. I didn't find parking was that much of an issue as there was parking on neighboring streets. The unit was perfectly clean with great amenities... More

Nice location, good clean room with fridge, and pretty gardens. We pretty much only use hotel rooms for sleeping so this place served its purpose well. No restaurant onsite, but Coconut Market nearby has a fairly good selection of eateries as well as convenience stores. Parking can be an issue, though.

Not the cleanest hotel on the block. But we saw no bugs, and we got a comfortable nights sleep. We were asked to change rooms mid vacation due to someone "buying" our room. Found that VERY ANNOYING. We were upgraded to an ocean view suite and we just let the issue go b/c we didn't want to dwell and ruin... More

Buyer Beware! This hotel has been one of the most frustrating experiences of all my travels. Out of towels, constantly. They don't have enough parking so they make you park down the road in public parking. The staff is definitely NOT customer centered. The beach is at most 10' wide and very steep. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.... More

As this was our first time on Kauai I wanted my family to stay at different parts on the island. The first two hotels we stayed at were quite expensive; more than double the price of the Aston.

This boutique hotel was superb. From check in to check out our experience was wonderful. The rooms are small but nice and clean. The view was outstanding. The restaurant and bar was all we needed and only left the hotel once to eat because the food and service was good at the hotel. Great value.
