Aston Aloha Beach Hotel Review

Nestled alongside Wailua Bay and the Wailua River, this low-key, low-rise hotel is a convenient and very inexpensive place to stay. It's within walking distance of Lydgate Beach Park, with its lifeguard and lawns, and also close to shops and low-cost restaurants. Rooms are in two wings and have beach, mountain, or ocean views and coffee-makers. The hotel also offers one-bedroom beach cottages with kitchenettes. It's not fancy, and some areas need better upkeep, but it's a reasonable choice for budget accommodations.

    BEST HOTEL IN KAUAI!!!!

    We booked our trip back in January through a travel agent. We had not been in Kauai for over 24 years. We were very excited, but after reading the reviews on the hotel we were very worried about the bad reviews. Everyday I would get on line reading another bad review,almost wanting to change entire package because of it! We decided to try it.....AND WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID!!!! ASTON HOTEL IN KAUAI....CAPTURES THE BEAUTY OF THE ISLAND OF KAUAI.... IT'S A SIMPLE, CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, GERNEROUS, 2 POOL WITH JACUZZI HOTEL...OUR JUNIOR SUITE.. WAS AN UPGRADE OVERLOOKING LYDGATE BEACH AND PARK. OUR SUITE WAS QUITE...ENOUGH ROOM FOR 2 ADULTS AND FOR OUR BOYS ALEX AND BRANDO 10 AND 11 1/2. THE KITCHEN WAS FULLY LOADED WITH SILVERWARE AND BOTTLE OPENER AS WELL AS FRESH COFFEE FILTERS EVERYDAY AND COFFEE CUPS! WE DIDN'T SPEND ALOT OF TIME IN THE ROOM...BECAUSE WE DID SO MUCH ON THE ISLAND. THE BOYS SWAM EVERYDAY...AND EVENTHOU PEOPLE SAY THE POOL IS OUTDATED...IT WAS JUST FINE...MY GOSH WE WERE IN KAUAI FOR 12 DAYS!
