This place is pretty old, but the room we had was just fine. It was large and over looked the ocean. The problem with this place is the common areas. No one takes care of them! The entries to the elevators are really bunged up from baggage carts hitting the corners. There was one section by the elevators where there was black tile along side the elevator, but one of the tiles got clobbered, so what was there was a hole with the white background showing. Plaster on some of the common walls was missing. The tables for the luau were stored in the entry way to the tower we were staying in. On a walk out to Kona, we saw the doors to the Dempster area open with all the garbage in view. When we returned about 2 hours later the doors were still open and the garbage in view. At about 9 PM there was a maids cleaning cart in the walkway - what was that doing there then?? The bottom line is that if all you want is a decent room, then this is not a bad place to go. Someone should do a litlle walk around the external part of the buildings, however, and see the relatively small things that should/could be taken care of so that the place would look like a classy place. The main entry area was wonderful - the rest of the place should/could be made that way also.
