I booked throught bookings.com and got a great deal for my one night stay as I arrived in Hawaii. the room are comfy though a coat of paint would help. it is nicely located right in the heart of Kona close to restaurants, shops and plenty of activities.

The great 'aloha' hospitality, comfort, affordability, and convenience were as advertised. The room was very comfortable and was very comfortable. We loved the orange-peel flavored water in the lobby on those hot humid days. We had no issues whatsoever.

The age of the hotel was apparent but it was well maintained and clean. I was hesitant at first when we entered the room and saw only a window unit for the AC but it worked perfectly and kept us cool. Took us a little while to find the ice machine since they don't have one on each floor but... More

Booked the hotel and went into the cleanest, almost the most friendly place I've been in my recent 3 months of traveling. The front desk and security people are absolutely amazing. We lost our car keys and the hotel security officer went above and beyond helping us find them. The only down side is that they close the pool to... More

To noisy to sleep. There is a lot of street noise, cars, trucks, motorcycles just outside the window. I wish I could post a sound clip so you could hear how bad the noise is here. The refriderator buzzed all night as well. We were using it. The ac system was loud, but not loud enough to soften the other... More

This place is really good for the price.The location is great and you can just step out into the "downtown" area. I loved it that there are really nice places to eat, shop, rest, hang out all just outside the hotel. There is a very nice beach area just outside, it might be a part of the hotel across the... More

The staff was very courteous and helpful! Very clean rooms, and good location comfortably just outside the main downtown strip so you still get a quiet sleep. The parking spaces are quite narrow, but otherwise, no complaints - parking was only $5 per night. I would definitely stay here again.

1) Parking is awful, but manageable. The spaces seem to be a foot narrower than every other place. The $5 parking fee is too low in my opinion. If I was guaranteed a normal spot, I'd pay $10 per night. 2) Perfect location. My favorite restaurant, the Kona Brewery, is kiddie corner to the hotel, and so are many other... More
