First stay here. Would definitely book again. Very new, great room. Fridge, microwave bar sink safe all there. Nice touch with the bed reading lights. Clean warm pool. Nice hot tub. Breakfast in the morning was very good. Great way to get the day going. Staff was great, polite and helpful. Easy walk to the downtown area.

Sometimes the simpliest things are the most valuable. So :) LOCATION : very good, just few metres to the "centre" with shops and restaurants ( if you are a sushi lover, just few steps from the hotel find YOU MAKE THE ROLL, good prices and the biggest piece of tuna I have ever seen in sushi). HOTEL PARKING : yes...

Dora at the front desk was extremely helpful and personable, always smiling, true Aloha Spirit. The hotel was so nice and clean. Convenient location AND no hidden fees or surprises charges. I have found my new favorite hotel for my monthly visits.

Location is a good block off the seafront road, views , even if you upgrade to partial ocean are really of parking lots. Not exactly quiet either. And for a new property, could use a good cleaning, and decent sheets, not linty feeling linens. But the staff is friendly and it is good value. Parking is extra $10/day. Good safe...

We had booked this hotel for 6 nights. I booked this location due to the non-smoking policy (so I thought). When we arrived, Arrielle, who was very friendly, accommodating, and professional, greeted us- both in the check in and departure she was great! However, when we went into the room we observed many hairs in the sheets (also in the...

We got a room before an overnight flight just to shower and rest. It's a decent hotel. The attendant at the front desk was annoying. Also, they charge for parking so rooms here are not as cheap as they appear.

Nice room, clean and quiet. The Hotel is well located near the main street for shops, foods and so. Very convenient parking fee ($ 10/day) for travelling around. Fair breakfast that could be improved.

Just stayed here for when we visited the Kona coast. Very good hotel, good rooms, good location and great cinnamon rolls on top of a good breakfast. Definitely recommend this hotel. Rooms have microwave and fridges in. Staff helpful.

Pretty much the same as any Holiday Inn you will ever visit. Good room, helpful staff and well located. The breakfast was pretty average but no real complaints as it was included in the room price. Would recommend for a short stay.

It's a two minute walk from the hotel into the main street of Kona. Heaps of restaurants, tour companies, transport etc, all within easy walking distance. The rooms are clean and quiet. A breakfast buffet is complimentary and adequate, although the guy running the buffet is a little rude, but all the other staff concierge, cleaners etc are great. They...
