This hotel is in desperate need of a top to bottom renovation. The hotel was kept very clean and the staff was friendly, but this place is begging to be brought out of the 70's and into the new millenium. We paid $95.00 a night for a single queen room and the Marriott Hotel which was a stones throw away...

If you like to be with the locals and want something clean, safe, & cozy. This is your spot! The staff as well as the locals in general were very kind! Very attentive. Very helpful in other adventures you may want to discover. The breakfast choices are nothing like continental! More filling, more choices, & just a minute walk to...

This is a small hotel in a great location near the harbor, historic sights, and shops. It has true ALOHA spirit. Five star service! There were always two or three friendly and very helpful people at the front desk. The whole hotel is very clean and comfortable. It was a perfect as our home base to visit the many beaches...

We have stayed here many times. It's central location allows for easy access to the Kona Strip. The rooms are "basic Hawaiian" but do have air conditioning, a ceiling fan, small fridge and interesting blue shag carpet. There is also a drip coffee machine that allows you to try out the local coffee if you have your own filters. The...

Central location with parking available outside for $5 per car (or you can park at the free public parking for free - short walk from hotel). Breakfast served at Splashers restaurant adjoining the hotel - good choices with lovely outlook. No kettle provided. Wi-fi is free but only available in the lobby. Location can be noisy with busy roads next...

Not a resort, but a good place to sleep for a good price. Pros: - Convenient location as a base for driving places on the Kona side of the island - Clean and well-maintained - Friendly and helpful staff Cons: - Location is in between the touristy waterfront and the commercial strip malls in Kailua, so not that nice a...

This is not a fancy place, but we always enjoy it, having stayed here at least 5 differen times over the years. It is super clean, and mostly quiet, especially considering it's in downtown Kona. It is handy to walk out the door and stroll through downtown and near tons of restaurants and shops. We enjoy especially having the deck,...

Let me first say... If you are expecting 5 star features at a bargain price you are going to be disappointed. However, if you go into this recognising it is a locally owned value location that is basic but friendly with lovely staff you will be happy with what you experience. This hotel was great for me, a cheap stay...

We stumbled upon this one when we arrived in Kona a day early and the place we'd booked had no vacancy. Great price, terrific location close to everything in downtown Kona, two pools, air-con rooms, a laundry, internet computers in the lobby - it had everything we needed! We ended up staying here a few times during our stay in...

We ended here as an alternative to staying at a resort the first evening since our plane arrived so late. Overall it was a fair value. We probably had one of the worst rooms available, overlooking the pool on the first floor, but for our 10-hour Monday evening stay it was fine. If we had to stay there longer, we'd...
