Our son & daughter-n-law recommended this hotel. They had stayed there on their honeymoon. We were driving from Hilo to Kona & staying overnight only ,then we were going on to Maui. We arrived late in the afternoon/early evening & checked out the next day at 6:30am(we were going deep sea fishing from 7:30-11:30) The location ig great for $88.00 per night. We had a ground level room. We basically showered, went out for dinner at Huggo's the restaurant not the bar (the macadamia nut mahi mahi was awsome) went back to our room probably 8:30 to sit in the chaise lounge chairs & listen to the waves. My husband & I were talking very little about the ocean, etc... & not very LOUD....We had no alcohol, nothing, we were just going to sit outside at our own hotel for a little while, when I heard somebody say something. I thought it came from a balcony, but no it was the owner (the wife I guess) telling us if we wanted to talk we had to go to the pool area. I couldn't believe it, it was 9:00pm. I was so mad she had went over everything else at check in as if you hadn't read the information that they had sent you but never mentioned the fact that we couldn't enjoy sitting in front of our room, enjoying the ocean waves,talking quietly at 9:00pm (her room was right next to ours) Location was great, but very rude owners. Yes its old, but clean & nice to be a few yards away from the ocean. Slept great with the ocean sounds & a nice breeze.
