Good location, nice room and friendly helpful front desk staff. However, I left my swim suit in the shower. I called housekeeping twice (once ONLY HOURS after I checked out) and they claim to not have found it. I live on the Island and only stayed one night so it's not like I had tons of belongings to keep track... More

This is not a fancy hotel, but the locations is great (especially if you need a hotel close to the airport, as we did) and good value ($130 for a triple). They have a pool for kids to enjoy. Again, nothing fancy here, but good value. Restaurants close by.

Have stayed at all the seaside hotels in Hawaii and really enjoy the charm. The kona seaside is very close to historic downtown. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Great views from hotel and the rooms are clean and quiet.

Great place. The rooms are nice and the beds and pillows amazing. The property has some history to it but it is well kept and most definitely has old school Hawaii charm. The friendly local staff add a fine finish. Clearly the staff cares about their hotel and you can feel it. The fact that it is close to shops,... More

Quick drive from the airport, great location close to shops and restaurants in the town of Kailua. Management VERY friendly! My room was pleasant and clean. I especially enjoyed the linens on the bed, comfortable and I even liked the color, too. Value was good, considering you're staying in a tropical paradise. I recommend, and, next time in Kona I...

Enjoyed the included breakfast next door overlooking the water each morning. good central location for exploring the area. Proudly owned by a native Hawaiian family for many years, and this... More

You can walk to a beach and nearby shopping from this location. Great free breakfast coupons are provided to use at a nearby restaurant. Free wifi provided speeds in the 20 Mbps range and the room was clean with a private patio. The only drawback was a fairly loud window based air conditioner but we were able to sleep through...

I stayed here with my daughter after we missed our flight. It was the cheapest room available. The room was clean and comfortable but old and outdated. We tested comfortably with a loud window AC unit running. The towels were very thin but served their purpose. Wifi was free. We also got the breakfast that was included- not worth it... More

While it is not on the level of a "resort" it is comfortable, convenient and has a friendly and helpful staff. The room with a single king bed is a good deal. There is a patio with two chairs overlooking the pool. The bathroom boasts good water pressure and temperature as well as face soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion,... More
