Rooms have recently been renovated, so make sure you get one of those--they're clean and modern. Great value during July--we bailed out of Honolulu and came over to Kona and stayed for half the price at a much better hotel. Staff was great to get us in at 8:00 p.m. reservation for showing up at 10:30 pm after the flight from Honolulu.
This hotel is right downtown in the village and a short walk to anything in Kailua-Kona. There were two beaches for snorkeling within walking distance down at the pier, and the restaurants in the village were quite good.
Liked least some shopworn fixtures in the hallways, but staff said the depression is slowing down their renovation. The common areas were clean and quite tropical. This hotel was originally a Hilton, so the styling is great.More
