This is a very tired Courtyard by Marriott hotel...the location is terrific right next to the pier and within walking distance of restaurants, etc, but would definitely not stay here again. We upgraded to an ocean view and literally looked down on the roof of part of the building and heard kids screaming and shouting in the pool until later evening. Not worth it. Some mold in the shower and air conditioning that never hit the temp we selected. If you are looking for a nights sleep and easy location then this would be ok (but it is not cheap and resort fee is $22 per night plus an additional $20+ for parking). Otherwise would recommend staying somewhere else.

Aloha lpguini, Thank you for choosing the Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha for your recent stay as well as taking time to give me your feedback. Your valuable feedback helps identify areas of opportunity for us to improve the guest experience. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the views from your room and the destination amenity fees. Our amenity package is new and was designed to resolve many requests and complaints that we frequently heard from guests such as providing beach chairs and umbrellas, water, etc. We hope you were able to enjoy many of the items in the amenity fee. It is meant to add a great deal of value for our guests rather than just another fee. Our rates are comparable to similar hotels in our neighborhood, as we feel we provide some of the best value because of our prime location and personal service standards. Though you have clearly stated that you will not be back, we hope that you will reconsider your decision and give us another opportunity in hopes we may alter your perception of our product and services. I am happy to tell you that we are finalizing plans for a renovation so hopefully we have the opportunity to welcome you back to experience our new refreshed product. Mahalo

What a great place! The staff was amazing! So helpful and made you felt like you were wanted! The room was adequate, not huge, but we made it work for the four of us. The only thing we found odd were the sliding doors to the bathroom. They open like an elevator, but you open/close by hand. In the middle of the night, when you can't see, they make a horrible racket trying to close! Other than that, it was sublime! Perfect location for shops and restaurants. We had breakfast in the hotel outside and saw 10 different bird types all around! Tips we learned! 1. Get snorkel gear, chairs and umbrella from Kona Boys on the beach (it all came with the room) and get beach towels from the Front Desk. Great people, very helpful!! 2. Valet parking is only slightly more than self parking, you're on vacay, spoil yourself! 3. Menehune Coffee Shop (in the hotel) is the BOMB-DIGGITY!! Seriously good coffee and great breakfasts! Get there early if you like scones, they sellout quick. I'm not a big scones fan, but those were delicious! And the smoothies were mind-glowingly good! 4. If you like coffee, buy your beans at Menehune Coffee Shop. They have their own farm 30 minutes south of the hotel. They sell Peaberry beans there at a fraction of the cost you will find on any other island that I found. 8oz bag was 25$ there, 45$ in Honolulu. 5. The hotel is the perfect location for lots of great beaches and activities, all within a 30 minute drive. (Ask the concierge for help with transportation if you have no car. LOTS of shops & restaurants are a short walk) 6. ABC Store in the hotel had some of the best souvenir/sundries prices on the island, believe it or not. Hats, towels, sunscreen, booze, you name it, they had it and you didn't feel like you where still in an airport!!

Fine hotel, clean rooms, decent food, walking distance to lots of places in Kona BUT tremendously overpriced. Should be half the price of Hilton Waikoloa not the same price. There is just no comparison. Marriott should not be charging ‘resort’ fees. It is just a hotel with a smallish pool and access to the beach. Oh, all the poolside chairs are full by 8:50am, so get up and claim your spot early if you want to be around the pool.

Aloha Yip123, Thank you for choosing the Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha for your recent stay as well as taking time to share your feedback. It was truly a pleasure serving you. Although we are glad to hear that you enjoyed our clean rooms, the food and wonderful location, we appreciate your thoughts on the parking and destination amenity fees. Our amenity package is new and was designed to resolve many requests and complaints that we frequently heard from guests such as providing beach chairs and umbrellas, water, etc. Please accept my apologies if these items are not important or appreciated by you. We love to hear where we hit the mark, but we really want to know how we can get better so we can get busy working on it. You have so many choices and you selected us, and we let you down. We hope you were able to enjoy many of the items in the amenity fee package. It is meant to add a great deal of value for our guests rather than just another resort fee. Additionally, I want to share with you that we share your sentiment on the availability of our pool chairs. We recently ordered twice what we have currently, but still not enough on hand to accommodate all guest needs during peak seasons and apologize for any inconvenience. We are working on improvements for the hotel which will enhance your experience next time! We hope we have an opportunity to earn your trust and show you how we have improved on your next trip to Kona! Mahalo

This hotel is quirky but adequate for a family. The rooms, linens, and toiletries are standard for Marriot. Self parking is very close to the resort so no need to valet park. Staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel is close to restaurants and attractions within walking distance. ABC store is in the lobby for convenience and souvenirs. Elevators are fast and self laundry is available and affordable. The decor is a bit dated but clean. The hotel has an entire mall in the lobby, along with a museum. Historical artifacts, a local church, and Luau. The best shave ice on the island is sold in the lobby. Outside there's a pool, hot tub, equipment rental booth, and replica of a historical site. The restaurant serves an outstanding breakfast buffet that's $25 but worth it. Tennis courts and a small beach surround the property. I'd stay here again for convenience. Just know before booking that the hotel seems to have an identity issue because it tries to cater to every need and doesn't have one solid niche perfected yet.

If you are expecting a beautiful, new hotel, this is not it. The staff exuded enthusiasm and hospitality, but the building is worn. The damp rolled carpet did bother me, but the manager’s comment says that is being replaced. I would stay here again after they have completed updates. GREAT location!

Aloha 783sherrif, Thank you for your recent stay and for your feedback. We understand your feelings of needing to update and are happy to share that we are finalizing our plans for a renovation that will start within the upcoming months so we will have a fresh new look and feel very soon. The carpet with bumps and rolls will be gone very soon. If you return to Kona and enjoy the downtown area, we would love the opportunity to serve you again and earn your perfect 10 stay grade. We know you have many choices when it comes to hotels, we are sorry to have let you down and look forward to serving you in the future! Mahalo
