We stayed at the Royal Kona for 2 day side trip while spending December 2012 in Maui. The room was as pictured on the hotel website except the photo didn't show the ceiling that needed to be refinished; the walls that were chipped, stained and in severe need of at least 2 coats of paint; the stained and worn carpeting; the rust stains on the bathroom floor; and the stained, chipped and dirty furniture. We were in the second building and the only ice machine for the 6 floors was out of service during our stay. There was no hotel guide in the room to allow us to check on the 'facilities' offered by the hotel. When we were checking in there were 3 employees behind the front desk and it took almost 5 minutes before 1 of them was able to start the check-in
process and we were the only guests at the desk the whole time we were at the desk. Low 1 1/2
star hotel at 3 1/2 star prices. Will not be returning on our next visit to the Big Island.
