Great location in Kona, easy to walk everywhere in town, near the pier. Go to Holy Donuts & Frenchman's Cafe next door. Fair view of ocean. Sweet little pool. Really good breakfast, better than Continental. Business office & gym are nice. Friendly service, for the most part. The front desk staff was mixed, several people were REALLY helpful, one was...

This is a nice hotel in a very congested area. The rooms are clean and well equipped. You do have to pay for parking,but the parking is close to the entrance. The breakfast was very good typical HE. The breakfast was closely monitored and everything was constantly stocked and fresh.

We did our research and cancelled our original plans to stay here; great decision. The place is newer and cleaner than anything else in the area: no bugs, great beds and super room. Only $10 daily parking with spaces always available near the front door. Our four night and five day stay was really enjoyed. Central to everything and a...

The hotel was really clean and offered a descent breakfast every morning. The front desk clerk was helpful with places to go and directions - which is needed...

I am thoroughly surprised at the quality of this hotel! I've stayed at other Holiday Inn "Express" hotels and this one blows them all out of the water.The facility was very clean and quiet. It is in the heart of downtown Kona, close to good coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping. We never felt in danger while at this hotel, or...

I've stayed in several HIE's and find them reliably good. Room: Quiet, dark, clean. Toilet didn't work upon arrival but seems the water was off or some issue like that, maintenance came and fixed it in about 2 minutes. Breakfast: Good as always, the usual fare of eggs, breads, meats, yogurt, cinnamon rolls, etc. No pancakes at this one but...

I want to express my thanks and gratitude to the front desk staff (Arrielle) for helping us make the most out of our time on the island and when our luggage didn't make the flight with us she made sure we had all the essentials we needed to survive until they delivered it to us. Thank you for an enjoyable...
