    Across the street from beach, very good price

    by

    I chose the Aston Waikiki Circle because I was booking a flight and hotel package through Air Canada, and this was one of the cheaper hotels and is in a good location in Waikiki East, right across the street from the beach. The room we had was quite basic, with two double beds, a desk, TV, and mini fridge. My husband and I ended up pushing the beds together to make one giant bed, which worked out pretty well. The beds are pretty comfortable, although we could tell the linens were a bit old and a little scratchy. All rooms have a balcony. We got one with a partial ocean view, which was alright, but which we probably wouldn't get next time just because we didn't spend any time sitting on it. Most of the view was of other buildings, and about a quarter of it was ocean. The bathroom is a fine size with just a shower, no tub, and blow drier. One cute touch is that there is a little bucket and pail in the bathroom, which is nice if you have kids. The staff were really nothing special. They weren't super friendly, but they weren't rude, either. Parking is available right underneath the hotel for $12 a day, which isn't bad compared to other hotels in the area. It's not valet, which I personally like better. The parking lot has room for about 25 cars, so it may or may not be full when you get there. Internet is available for a fee, but we just went to the Apple store a couple of blocks down and used their internet for free if we needed it. The hotel itself is, as the name suggests, round, which is kind of neat. There isn't really a lobby to the hotel. The front desk area is outside when you walk up to the hotel. Check out is at 12 noon. Our flight wasn't until 11pm, and we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel in a locked room that looks like it used to be some sort of dining area. Usually when we're on O'ahu we rent a car and explore the island, but it's very nice to have Waikiki Beach directly across the street from the hotel when you're feeling lazy and just want to walk across the street to relax. I would stay here again.

    Directions: Kalakaua Ave is the main street through Waikiki, parallel to the beach.

    This is a great hotel, located very near the beach and on the main street.

    There is a friendly staff, and the hotel has clean rooms with comfortable beds. Good value for your money.

    Ask for an oceanfront room when checking-in, to get a beautiful view from the balcony.

    Unique Quality: Great ocean view.

    The round hotel on the beach.

    by

    The staff here are perfect. They don't bother you at all unless you ask. From the front door it is a few feet to the elevator, no walking a half mile through a loby the size of the Grand Canyon. The beach is across the street!

    Unique Quality: You can see the ocean in all direction from the balcony. This is a prime location on Waikiki beach.

    Directions: Across from Waikiki Beach.

    From USD 79 pr. night. Extra USD 30 for the ocean view. And you pay extra for everything else as well (even for parking in the hotel garage).

    Unique Quality: The hotel is located on the best part of the famous waikiki beach. Great views of the beach, ocean and the action on the streets. The hotel dont have a restaurant and dont serve brekfast, but there are several restaurants nearby.

An Original Waikiki High Rise

by KiKitC about Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel

This is a hotel I would recommend to couples looking for the Waikiki experience on a Fargo budget. This is one of the original high rises on Waikiki, and it is showing in some wear, but the rooms are clean with daily maid service. The building is circular, making the rooms small and pie shaped. The bathroom is small, but each room has two double beds and is more than adequate for those that are going to be out of the room all day anyway.

The only drawback is limited parking. I was just released from the hospital after a bad accident when we arrived. We had the beachfront room on the top floor. The view was incredible. If I had to be anywhere to recover from an accident, sitting on this lanai and soaking in the view is it.

Affordable beach view Hotel

by iammon about Waikiki Circle Hotel

This is a nice little hotel with an affordable beach view. The location on Kalakaua Avenue (main tourist and shopping street ) is great. Everything is in walking distance (Restaurants, shops, zoo to name a few) The rooms are a bit on the small side but clean and comfortable. Bear in mind that it is located on the main road therefore it can be a bid noisy with open windows (there is quite a difference between the 3rd floor and the 11th as we recognized as we stayed there twice).

Price was 170 $ with tax for a nite for an ocean view room.
Staff is helpful. Only coffee included for breakfast but lots of possibilities close by. Free newspaper everyday and beach towels. Parking is limited and is 10 $ a nite. Whole Hotel is smoke free. Check in at 3:00 p.m. Check out at 12:00 p.m. It is almost an art deco kind of hotel with special character. It was founded by a Chinese woman and was in family hands for a long time. Now it is part of the Resortquest group.

We left Waikiki on December 27, 2003. We had an excellent stay at the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel. The staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with. The room were small but comfortable and great for resting and sleeping needs. We had a breath taking view from our ocean view room.
"And talking about being right on the beach!" There you are, just walk across the street less than 25 meters and you are on Waikiki beach. It couldn't have been better! The hotel accommodations were basic and limited, but a health center was next door and most all other accommodations were in close walking distance from the hotel. The hotel parking was somewhat questionable and crowded but I always found a place to park. Now for food! I wouldn't eat at the hotel restaurant it was kind of scary. However, there many excellent restaurant and other places to eat all over Waikiki. Most of the restraunts also provided great entertainment and the best drinks. The Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel is more consistent with a Motel 6 motel. But we enjoyed out great stay at the Aston Waikiki Circle Hotel and we plan to stay their again upon our return to Waikiki.

The Spells family

Had a great time

by A TripAdvisor Member

We just got back after staying 5 nights at the Aston Waikiki Circle hotel. We had such a good time that we booked an additional night. The rooms were clean and for 4 people the bathroom size was sufficient. The ocean view was spectacular! We spent alot of time in the morning on the balcony watching the sufers, boats, waves and people. The location was great, great, great. My co-worker recommended this hotel as she and her family always stay here. I will definetly thank her for her recommendation. As for an ecomony hotel it was great.

You Shoulda Stayed There Before the Remodel

by TripAdvisor Member Tommy2pdx

Caveat emptor is usually the phrase of the day when staying at admittedly "budget" hotels which this used to be before it had a serious upgrade/remodel in 1996. I stayed at The Waikiki Circle Hotel twice a year (usually April and first two weeks of December) from 1982-1995. At the time the place was in some disrepair and sorely needed a facelift, as the Aston chain later gave it. The pro's and con's tilted squarely onto the pro side at that time due to a number of factors, the chief one being the obscenely low rates. In 1982 a high floor ocean view room was (brace yourself) $29.00 per night and at the end in 1995 around $65.00 a night. While in the US Army at Schofield Barracks (near Wahiawa) from 1976-'79, I discovered this little gem.
The pro's were: directly across the street from Waikiki Beach; hotel parking ($2.00 per night in'82 and $8.00 in '95) and yes the slots are limited to about a dozen and are extremely narrow so rent the smallest subcompact you can if you intend to stay here; restaurants, stores, attractions close by; centrally located about midway down the island that is Waikiki (and on the prettier less trashy half); spacious lanais that afforded great people watching, sunsets and ocean views and finally did I mention how CHEAP it was? The con's were: air conditioners that were less than reliable (that's where being on a high floor helped due to ever present tradewinds); shabby decor: carpet that looked and felt similar to concrete; bathroom fixtures from the '40's; flimsy louvres near closet and sliding glass doors that rattled at night and finally, as all hotels and homes are wont to have in Hawaii, copius amounts of cockroaches. I can happily report however, after two subsequent stays (December 1997 and March 2002) that all of the pro's still endure (except the rates, of course, but the ocean view rooms are still about a third cheaper than other ocean view rooms along the beach) and that the con's have been eliminated with the remodel. We saw nary a cockroach on either stay but those parking slots are as miniscule as ever. Overall, bearing in mind that this property is over 50 years old, it is still asthetically pleasing, comfortable (perhaps crowded if more than 2 are in a room) and a relative bargain. I would recommend to anyone, except perhaps Donald Trump. Besides, you'll be out discovering the natural beauty of Hawaii and all that Aloha anyway!

Honolulu for 4 nites 5 days

by Jaxs

Looking for any info one can give on where one could stay in Honolulu for just 4 nites at a relatively priced hotel. Hotel must be clean and provide some ammenities like possibly shuttle to airport etc, and close to beach or within walking distance. Any ideas?
Thanks
Jaxs

Re: Honolulu for 4 nites 5 days

Look up the website for the Resort Quest Waikiki Circle Hotel. It is right across the street from Waikiki Beach, great views, less expensive than other hotels in the area. We stayed there last year. Room is decorated in a funky way (lots of fish) and no shuttle from the airport. But, location, location, location . . . .Most of the reviews on tripadvisor.com are pretty positive.
