Set in a colorful 1920s building, this modest hotel is 4 miles from Hulihee Palace museum in the Kailua-Kona Village, 5 miles from Kahaluu Beach Park and 6 miles from Keauhou Bay, in a quiet art and coffee Village More named Holualoa. The hotel sits across the road from restaurants, cafe's, and a general store. Art galleries line the street within walking distance. This is Kona Coffee Country and tasting opportunities surround the property. This hotel is one of the last affordable family run historic hotels offering Vintage Hawaii warmth and charm. Bright, basic private rooms come with free Wi-Fi, parking, and offer shared bathrooms and common areas. Many rooms and common areas offer partial views of the Pacific Ocean and those famous Hawaiian Sunsets. Less
