This is a brand new hotel, a few blocks from the beach, in the heart of Kailua. The room was very comfortable, the staff was top notch, and the free breakfast was a real plus. Because the hotel is a couple of blocks from the beach, it is very quiet at night, giving a great sleeping experience. There were several... More

This hotel opened in October 2014 so it is a newer hotel and very clean. Although it is not on the beach, it is located in a tourist area with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. It is a couple of blocks from the ocean but not within walking distance of a nice beach. The room was a king... More

We liked both the hotel and staff. We stayed in a King Suite on the 3rd floor. The room was extremely spacious, clean enough, the AC worked well (but could be much colder), plenty of wall sockets (but could be more conveniently located near the bed), the bed was HUGE and firm which is excellent for bad backs, the water...

Very reasonable price, especially compared to other stuff in the area. Great location, very good condition, big rooms and decent breakfast. Only reason I didn't give it 5 is because they charge 10 dollars a day to park in the hotel car park and the fan in the bathroom doesn't really work well, so nothing dries very well. Otherwise, excellent.

Awesome new hotel in Kailua-Kona, really set off our Hawaii vacation the right way. Location is awesome, within walking distance of the water and a ton of shops/places to eat. Plenty of free parking which is a huge plus. The place was secure, the open air atrium was a really nice place to eat a quick breakfast snack or have... More

Nice, new property, about 3 blocks from the water. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The good: The windows open wide, allowing the breeze to blow into the room. Lots of free parking onsite. Old town Kailua-Kona is within walking distance. Our issues: The bathroom fan didn't seem to work. We were told that it was the silent type. In... More

Great hotel! Centrally located in Kona, easy to get around from here. Stayed one night after we flew into the Big Island. Room was huge, very well appointed. New and very nice :) Breakfast was great, good selection of hot foods and everything needed to get your day started! Loved the open air seating while eating. Would return 100%! Friendly... More

Breakfast was not bad at all, better than expected. Not a resort that's for sure....but considering I wanted the Fairmont Orchard....I have to say I liked my stay... More

As platinum members we know what to expect, a couple of tiny probs were sorted out swiftly by the manager, and our suite was roomy, spotless, and quiet, just what we needed after 3 long flights. It was a first for us to have our breakfast by the pool in a windowless room/lounge,( due to the lovely warm weather), and... More

Excellent service and clean comfortable rooms, no complaints! Nice pool and hot tub, close to oceanfront and easy parking. Normal everyday holiday inn breakfast included which allows you more time adventuring around the island.
