First time Tripadvisor let me down! DO Read the 1 and 2 star reviews BEWARE!

plclarkson (Southern California) on Sep 16, 2023

I'm really struggling with this review. Tripadvisor rates this as a 4 star accommodation. There are tons of 5 star reviews. First the good... you just can't beat the location. The ocean front condos literally have the waves crashing just below the balcony. That's where anything good ends. The condition of the room we were assigned in building 2, #209 is astonishingly bad. The stench of mold was so overwhelming, I immediately had an asthma attack. The furnishings, carpet, appliances were visibly filthy, the refrigerator looked like someone took a hammer to it. They then tried to send us to room 105, which was in equally poor shape. I can only assume that some rooms have been gutted and refurbished. There simply isn't any other reason for a 4 star rating or the mass of 5 star reviews. This one is a roll of the dice! I will end with the hotel DID issue a complete refund and the hotel clerks were very kind.

Very nice place to stay

My GF and I stayed for only 1 night, but wish we would have stayed longer. The place was very nice, well kept and clean. Our balcony overlooked the pool and we could see out to the ocean. Everything we needed was available in the kitchen. Parking was not a problem.

Aston Kona wonderful

The Aston Kona is really a great property. The staff is friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and caring. We were in Room 406. It was perfect with a perfect ocean view. You would be so well-served staying here.

Great place but needs a few upgrades

amyzidd (Austin, Texas) on Aug 30, 2023

Honest review of the hotel. A few things to be upgraded. The showers/bathrooms and the master door to living area. Shower heads are super low and old. Husbands had to bend down a bit to shower. The master door is shutters with no window on open air you can hear the noise from living room. This was a big con for us because the two couples are on different sleep schedules. If that is not a thing for you then the hotel was great. The patio with ocean view was a BIG plus. We fell asleep to the ocean and the doors open. Fabulous! Kitchen was upgraded granite counter tops etc. hotel had everything we needed. Not a fancy pool but it was fine. Also not crowded with a bunch of people..which was very nice. We had no problems getting a chair at beach or pool. At times had both to ourselves. I would stay here again if they upgraded the master doors. Great location! Mile from the shops bars and restaurants!

Great value for money - sunsets included!

sunfan76 (Thun, Switzerland) on Aug 28, 2023

The reasonably priced oceanfront suite offers a stunning view (including sunsets), is (more than!) spacious and well equipped as well as quiet at night (apart from the soothing sound of the waves!). Staff was super friendly and honored our requests (adding an extra night and slightly later check-out).
