Not to be confused with the Aston Beach a couple blocks away, or the Aston Beach Circle next door, the Aston Beachside is a nice little no-frills boutique hotel right across from Waikiki beach.
The room was small and nothing extraordinary compared to more modern hotels (ie, it has an old CRT tube TV, but I wasn't in Honolulu to watch TV!), but the room was always kept clean and it was relatively quiet despite being right beside the elevator. Even with the airconditioner turned off, there was a nice breeze from the open-air hallway that kept the room cool all day & night (this is in November with 25-30 Celsius weather, might be different in hotter/humid weather!)
The most noteworthy thing about this hotel was the staff; everyone was friendly and cheerful, and the three front-desk staff I encountered throughout the week seemed to always know who we were; I've never stayed at a boutique hotel, but this level of personal recognition was the most valued part of this stay.
Although WiFi is not free ($10/day), you can get an access code from the front desk to use in the lobby which will continue to work in your room for 24 hours.
